 auctions to benefit Comcast-Spectacor Charities, the umbrella charity encompassing both Flyers Charities and Global Spectrum Charities.

“We look forward to helping Comcast-Spectacor Charities support charities throughout the Greater Philadelphia Region by offering their rare and unique collectibles to our large customer base all around the world,” said Ken Goldin, Founder of Goldin Auctions. “We hope to build upon this model to help other such charitable organizations broaden their reach to some of the world’s most discerning and passionate collectors.”

The items, which may include stadium-used items, fan experiences, autographs and game-used memorabilia, will be featured in a special section of each Goldin Auction as Comcast-Spectacor Charity Collection. Proceeds from the lots will go to Comcast-Spectacor Charities.
