I really don't feel like bidding more than $26 for one of these on ebay, so if anyone could help a fellow sox fan out, just PM me or email me at jlim_4@yahoo.com.

$10 enough?

If anyone has extras, please PM me I'd love to get one.


If not, jlim or anyone else, don't overpay. They should be available during the season at The Cell.

It is really sad that these wristbands are being used as a way to make a profit on eBay. For God's sake they are only $2 and they are for CHARITY.

For those of you that haven't had the chance to get one, there is a number that they give you on the little plastic bag that you can call and order the wristbands. Since I threw mine out, if anyone still has the package and can post the number that would be good so no one has to go to an auction site and give a money hungry person a good profit.

They don't have anything about the wrist bands on whitesox.com other than the article about them being sold at soxfest. :(: Hopefully they post something in a few days after soxfest

Yeah, sorry I didn't actually look online before I posted the website, I just assumed they had info there because that's what is on the package.

I bought 4 extra in case anyone here needed them. I just want 2 bucks and a stamp per wristband. PM me if you are interested.

I agree. Therefore if anyone wants to sell one for 3 or 4 bucks, email me at dblarnotoff@Aol.com . I really want one of those

Is there really one on Ebay for $26? That's just sick.

there was, yes, and the final price probably went over $30.

there's about 5 new auctions now for the wristbands and this one;
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=25132&item=5157835541&rd=1&ssPageName=WDVW

... ends just after 10PM tonight. It's reasonably priced (currently at $6+$1.50 S&H). I'm just going to wait until they sell them at the Cell. I think they'll have people walking around selling them like they do with raffle tickets.

Why? There no longer for sale, right? I could undertand this argument if the White Sox continued to sell them for charity on their website or something, but as it stands now they are no longer available to the public. Your attitude on the matter seems very socialist.

A call to all those owning extras:

Sell them on Ebay please. It's better for everyone involved. I really want one, but the supply right now is so low and the demand so high that they're going to go for like 10+ at least for the foreseeable future unless the Sox get smart and make some more or sell them online. An increased supply would help your fellow White Sox fans by a good deal.

If I get more I am not selling them on eBay. IMO, that's just wrong.

I guess so. The best thing to do would be if we could have an official buyers and sellers thread here on WSI where we could discourage the prices from being more than the 5 dollars max it could take for shipping and covering the cost of the actual wristband.

I apologize for not posting this sooner, but the 4 extra wristbands I had are all spoken for. I realize now I should have bought more-and NO, not to sell on ebay.:tongue:

My point is that if you want one now, you have to buy it second-hand. Why is there a problem with that?

I've found a happy medium. I have 3 wristbands listed on eBay.

For whatever amount above $2 they sell for, I keep 50% and donate the other 50% to either Sox charities or tsunami relief. Buyer chooses.

Who here went to Ebay to check out what else Wilkes has bought or sold lately? Show of hands! :D:

I'm with you. The packages they came in had a phone number to order more. I can't imagine they would ever be sold out. I mean, come on, they must cost 10 cents to make and will probably be available at the Park in April.

My point is that if you want one now, you have to buy it second-hand. Why is there a problem with that?Why anyone would pay $25 for one of these is beyond me. But especially when they're going to be available for $2 in a couple of months. But it takes all kinds. People pay ridiculous amounts of money for dumber stuff. If you want to stuff $25 in someone's pocket for a big rubber band, go ahead.

I'm actually blown away that there aren't more of them on there. Usually after a bobblehead day, you'll go to Ebay and see 60 bobbleheads, and none of them end up going for more than 10 bucks.

Say you missed Soxfest, and don't have the connections of a season ticket holder or have friends at WSI with extras. What other means do you have of obtaining one if you really wanted one? Right now, none.

I had a chance to talk with Scott Reifert and he said that they were dissapointed in the wristbands and they regretted the way they made them. He said next time they will have silver in the letters so it stands out more. I told him all of them are the same color in the letters.

Then we'll have a way of differentiating the SoxFest release from the newbies!
