MCBA Charity Events
The MCBA Charity Garage Sale :
You never know what you might find at the MCBA Charity Garage Sale. From comic books to crew socks, we've seen just about everything over the years. Volunteers, dealers, guests, and even sometimes attendees bring is all types of like new odds and ends that they no longer want. And we sell those items to raise money for charity. You never know what you might find at the charity sale. Stop by and take a look. If you see something you like, make us an offer. No reasonable offer refused, but remember its for charity. Also if you have some collectable item you no longer want, a christmas or birthday gift that missed the mark, or even some board games you no longer play, you can bring them by the con and donate them to the sale. Its all done for fun and to help others. We appreciate your support and hope you will stop by the sale!

One of the premiere events at MSP ComiCon! Our extremely generous guest creators kindly donate pieces of their original artwork, sketches, and re-marked collectibles for our MCBA Original Art and Unique Collectibles Charity Auction.

This is a live auction that is fun, extremely exciting, and easy to participate in! 100% of all proceeds will be split between the MCBA's chosen charites.
In the dawning age of Digital Comic Art Production the days of pencil and ink production are numbered. So before the digital drawing tablet replaces old fashion pen and paper seize this opportunity to own a piece of original comic art history!
