MLB Legend's Surprise for Heartbroken Fan
MARCH 01, 2013 David Brown, Big League StewFree courtside seats to the Wichita State men's basketball game were unexpected, but also much appreciated by Chris Fevurly and his young son, Nolan. The appearance of Roberto Clemente Jr. as an ambassador bearing a signed 8-by-10 from Ken Griffey Jr., along with other neat items, came as a huge surprise. The 10-minute phone call that Fevurly and his son took from Griffey inside of coach Gregg Marshall's office was the biggest shocker of them all.

Ever since burglars in January stole a significant part of Fevurly's collection of Ken Griffey Jr. baseball cards (not to mention a big-screen TV), others have responded to make up for what was lost.

And Collector's Revolution got card collectors together to help replenish some of Fevurly's Griffey cards.Read more: Yahoo Sports
