Port dad buys rare baseball card for son's future


For now, the card will be kept in a security box. LeBlanc is considering possibly loaning it to the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, N.Y., to maybe the Yankees to put on display for others to see. At first, he thought he’d be selfish and hide the card away, simply to sell one day. But he decided he didn’t want to keep it or Alex’s story hidden.

“We’ve had a lot of hardships in life. We’re very fortunate at the same time,” LeBlanc said. “I want people to hear our hardship and hear our story that life can be difficult and a lot of good can come from it.”
