You really think so? What kind of events would you do next year involving 2005 that would be a "HUGE money maker"? I'm not being a jerk, I really want to know if I'm missing something. All I can see that they would/could do is bring in players for autograph sessions and have some 2005 themed giveaways, which I guess in theory would somewhat raise the attendance for those games, but I don't think it would lead to a big string of sellouts or anything.
Here's what they'll probably do (if even this much): Have a 2005 player signing autographs every Sunday. Throughout the season, give away a 2005 blanket and hat and poster. Maybe a statue replica of the sculpture outside the park. Maybe a Paul Konerko Grand Slam bobblehead or something. Maybe a 2005 team reunion night. I don't see big money there.
