We members of Bronco Nation are a lucky lot. We have an unassailable head coach, one of the best quarterbacks in the nation, and a bright future ahead. But during this season of giving...some of our friends and neighbors are decidedly down on their luck...and that's no way to spend the holidays. That's why, here at OBNUG, we're going to do our level best to give back and here's how we're going to do it:
Starting Wednesday, and through the weekend, we'll be putting Bronco items up for public auction and 100% of the proceeds will go to a deserving family that needs our help. Just click the accompanying link and it will send an email to our tips address with the subject line/item already filled in—you just have to say how much you'll be willing to pay for the item and we'll update this post accordingly to show where the current bid stands. This will be a "silent auction" in that we'll only say what the bid to beat is, rather than tell who the high-bidder was. At the end of the auction, the high-bidder gets the item and a family will have a brighter holiday season...so let's show that legendary Bronco generosity.

Philadelphia Eagles hat autographed by Quintin Mikell
Item Description: This hat was signed by Bronco great Quintin Mikell at the 2010 Pro Bowl in Miami.

Commemorative issue of The Blue magazine, signed by 2009-2010 squad
Item Description: This commemorative issue of The Blue magazine was released after the Broncos' perfect season that culminated in their exciting victory over TCU in the Fiesta Bowl. The magazine is filled with awesome photography and articles about the epic season, but the really cool thing about this item is that it's signed by nearly the entire squad. Fiesta Bowl MVPs Brandyn Thompson and Kyle Efaw signed it, as did nearly the entire roster. Kellen Moore, Shea McClellin, Jeron Johnson, Tyler Shoemaker...they're all there. Some players even signed the inside where their photo appears. This is a sweet item for a Bronco fan or collector. Auction ended. Sold for $220.
