View Full Version : Soxfest Loot!

02-02-2003, 07:00 PM
Anyone buy anything at Soxfest? I dropped $50 for a lineup card from the Expos/Sox game on 6/6 last year and had JM and KW sign it. Looking carefully at the card, there's some evidence of tinkering...

I broke down and purchased a road Crede jersey today.

Didn't buy much, that place was SOOO packed. Picked up one of the bricks from the old park.

I bought a Nellie Fox Bobble-head, and some Sox throw back hats, a '59, '64, and '68 hats.

Got some great autographs on Saturday. I was able to snag Baines, Dotson, Kittle, McDowell, Pierce, Skowron and Bucky Dent.

I also met some new people and finally met some old Message Board Posters. It was good to meet HotSoxChick, Baggio, and NorthSide Convert.

The big downer of the day was hearing about the Space Shuttle Columbia tragedy. It brought back the bad memories of when the Challenger blew up in '86, just two days after the Bears won the Super Bowl.

Just a SoxFest 2003 Tshirt and one of those old style Sox hats. I so wanted the Authentic autographed Magglio jersey with the All Star Game patch, but I didn't have the $250 it cost. Ah well, maybe I'll go to the garage sale.

I bought some fitted Cooperstown hats they were only 3 for 20.00. I bought some old programs and memorabilia. They had some pretty cool stuff this year and it seemed like there were better deals then in years past.

I bought a seat plate for 10. (a steal) And had Dot, Harold and Kitty sign it. Actually my wife did...What a sweety. It is now one of my favorite piece of memorbillia.

The Nellie bobble head was beautiful! I just couldn't pay 25 for it though. I really wanted the Minnie Minnoso but the only place that had it was "the garage sale" and they were only selling it as a set of 3 for 30. Damn!
