I was just wondering if anyone here as bought any of the various championship flags that the Sox fly at Comiskey at the Garage Sale. If so, how much did it cost, if you don't mind me asking. I anticipate the cost to be quite high, but was fairly interested, so I thought I would ask. Thanks.

I can confirm that they have sold them - not sure on the price, but I remember seeing a tattered 1983 flag a couple years back.

I've seen them too at SoxFest garage sale. I think the last time was 2 years ago. They were $500. However, the last day they usually discount stuff. Don't know if that's included, but I know gamer bats were %50 off the price. BTW, do they still have the garage sale at US Cellular? Or only at SoxFest nowadays... (god, I feel stupid asking, but the last couple of years $ was tight and outside of partial season tix, wife would've killed me bringing home game used equipment)

IIRC, there was a silent auction for the flags at the end of the season two or three years ago. Maybe they'll do the same for the 2005 World Series Championship flag next season.

I for one would love it if they offered replicas of all the championship flags ...even in miniatures... like a nice 3' X 5' for my rec room.

Both. The first garage sale of the year is at Soxfest. In 2005, they held the second garage sale as part of "Family Field Day" in early May at the Cell.

Thanks for the info. I used to always go to the one at the ballpark, which was usually the same day tickets went on sale.

Does anyone know how much the Sox playoff banners that were attached to streetlights all around the city sold for?

They were sold at the Daley Center about a month ago.

If I recall correctly, they were going for over 1K. The banners are auctioned off for the Chicagoland Food Depository, so it is a tax deduction. It is organized by the Mayor's Office of Special Events and they have the auction a couple of times a year. I would call them for the next auction date.

I think you're talking thousands of dollars if I remember correctly.

:o: Well, I'm certainly glad I didn't bother going to the auction then.

I used to work for MOSE, and the longer you wait after the event, the more the price will go down. The prices at the auction closest to the event always get the most money. It was true with the Bulls championship banners, and I am sure it will happen with the Sox banners as well. And there are a lot of banners to be auctioned.

Yea. I would like to know as well. A replica would be pretty awesome to have.

FYI-- in the lobby of City Hall now they have a table set up for donations to the Greater Chicago Food Deposiory and with each $10 donation you get a raffle ticket for one of the Sox street banners. Not sure which one or how many they are going to raffle off though.
