Robert Downey Jr $750 CGC Signing To Benefit FootPrint Coalition

Robert Downey Jr, who kicked off the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Iron Man, and may be the single most important figure in ist success is to do a private mail-in CGC signing event, in lieu of comic book convention appearances, Downey will be signing items from his role as Tony Stark as well as from his roles in Sherlock HolmesChaplin and more. All proceeds from the signing will fund FootPrint Coalition's nonprofit, which works to advance and promote the adoption of environmental technologies and sustainability. Founded by Downey Jr., FootPrint Coalition is an organization focused on scaling the adoption of technologies that will advance human systems towards a cleaner environment. FootPrint Coalition makes investments, provides grant funding, and creates content to mobilize a global audience to support its efforts in accelerating groundbreaking technologies that are addressing the world's largest environmental challenges. Which he is also charging $750 a signature, or $1,160 if it includes the words Tony Stark or Iron Man. And you thought $180 for Stan Lee was expensive.
