Update 4-19-2012: Last night Hoboken Robin was auctioned off for Charity at Texas Arizona. The winning bid was $20, a paltry amount for a Hoboken Superhero. Hoboken Robin ever the good sport about such things stated that based on his estimates the event probably easily raised over $5,000. That is good news but apparently the commodity prices of Robins has hit a downturn.
