A Bulverde man is suing HEB and the San Antonio Sports Hall of Fame after he won an online NFL auction that he said was a “disaster”, according to Express-News. The lawsuit, filed December 20, 2022, in San Antonio District Court alleges violations of the Texas Fraudulent Trade Practices Act.
Eduardo Solis reportedly won tickets to the Super Bowl, Pro Bowl and Pro Football Hall of Fame games, as well as the induction ceremony, by bidding $12,000 at the San Antonio Sports Hall of Fame Tribute auction hosted by the nonprofit San Antonio Sports. The event presented by HEB the same year, originally scheduled for March 28, 2020, went virtual as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The auction is the organizations largest fundraiser each year to support its free youth sports and community health initiatives.
