“Five-year old Tyler Blick (son of Steve Blick at Oakley) has just been diagnosed with Leukemia and is beginning 3+ years of Chemotherapy treatment. If you’ve seen how Leukemia and Chemotherapy affects people, you know it’s gut-wrenching to see. For a 5-year old to go through this is absolutely horrible. This is both a great opportunity to help a child just starting his journey in life, and get your hands on some one-of-a-kind BMX history.
BMX Hall of Fame freestyler Mike Buff along with Steve Blackey of the legendary SoCal shop The Bicycle Source are putting on eBay celebrity auctions starting May 27th (open to buyers worldwide) with all proceeds going to help Tyler. Items include a Bob Haro signed print of one of his drawings, signed Bob Osborn photographs from the BMX Action days, Mike Buff’s old school jerseys, an SE Quadangle frame signed by Stu Thomson, a limited edition Mongoose KOS Kruiser signed by Jeff Kosmala, California Lite pads, signed Oakley hat and B1B grips, and many other items most of which will be signed by old school riders and industry heroes. There are also limited-edition t-shirts (featuring Mike Buff’s famous launch off the Bicycle Source roof) for sale at TheBicycleSource.com
If you have kids or have lost friends or family to Leukemia you’ll really understand the value of these auctions – but either way, the family of Tyler would greatly appreciate the BMX community rallying together and supporting this cause.
Stay tuned for other items as the auctions list will continue to grow, and please pass this information along and do what you can to help Tyler. Thank you for your support!
