yeah, show up about 2 hours early otherwise you'll get stuck in a line that will extend into that lil mall they have there and you won't be able to get in line for the good autographs and will have to settle for Vizcaino, Borchard, and Ozuna.

Yeah, my suggestion to you is bring a bit of money.

I went bringing about $30 or so on me..., and It was almost like I was a kid in a candy store with all the sox memorbilia.

That would be my suggestion too. There is going to be a TON of World Series memorabilia available at this Soxfest! I can't wait!

Ah, Soxfest threads...I love them. I've only been to two and here is what I can offer you.

Expect the unexpected. I ran into Minnie on a near empty second floor with Wilbur Wood just about to get on an elevator. I got the minnie auto and a picture. Another year I was coming down the escalator, looked over and saw Minnie going up.

Try and get a hold of the itenerary and map out what you want to do so you don't miss something you really want.

At least get a few of the seminars in. They are great. I find the ones with Hawk and Harold very entertaining. Kenny is great too. He's very honest when answering questions.

Bring the cards you want signed with you and buy some balls or bats you want signed.

HIt the garage sale early. I got a part of a seat back from Old Comiskey with the number on it for only 10 bucks. I thought it was a steal. I now have 16 or so of the 83 guys on it.

Spend some time at the bar one of the nights. Most of the eplayers hang around there with the rest of the fans and WSI's. I regret not doing this in the past. I've only heard stories.

Take the camera.

These are the basics and some might sound obvious, but I hope it helps.

Have fun. I think I'm gonna skip the fest and try to go to Spring Training.
