I heard that the Sox have an annual auction where you can buy stuff from Comiskey they aren't using this year, old uniforms, etc. Does this happen at SoxFest? One person told me it was a special invite kind of deal.

They usually have the auction the same day they start selling single game tickets at the ballpark.

In past years, the Sox have had a special room for selling game-used merchandise and other bric-brac from the ballpark. It's usually upstairs from SoxFest. They've also held a "Comiskey Garage Sale" at the ballpark during the winter, too.

I haven't seen anything definite about this year's SoxFest, but I would be surprised if they didn't do something similar again this year.

One word of advice... the lines are very long to get in. A lot of dealers show up, so bargains can be hard to find--assuming you can get in at all.
