Default Since the playoffs began, how much money have you spent on the Sox?

Mods, if this thread should be somewhere else, my apologies and please move...

I was just wondering how much money everyone has spent on our well-deserved Sox this postseason. I am estimating I've spent about $300.

Locker room WS Champs t-shirt/cap, around $50
Sox hanging banner, about $36
Sox black alternate replica jersey, $75
Sox celebration ornament, about $16
Pennants (A.L. Champs/WS Champs) $10
Magazines/Newspapers commemorating the team....about $30

And I know there are lots of other things I'm not thinking of at the moment....(to be continued)

Ya, I'm probably in the $250 - $300 range

I spent about 150 on ALDS tickets (won't count my beer and food) and about the same on shirts, magazines and a DVD.

I have a feeling that number is going to jump quite a bit. I'm going to need another jersey and that jacket the guys were sporting at the parade is a "must have" too.

$250 on 4 ALCS tickets

$36 on banner

$125 on world series t-shirts, caps, sweatshirt and car flag

I'm not sure I'm done spending yet - Family thinks I'm a little out of control!

Thinking of buying Ozzie plan tickets for next year.

$60 on tickets for game 1 and 2 of the ALDS. + whatever I spent on food.

Nothing on World Series gear, my birthday was the 26th and it came pouring in.

Ah, to be young and single with little responsibility and lots of disposable income...

AIRFARE Toronto-Chicago return = $500 CDN
DOWNTOWN HOTEL (8 nights) = $1,200 US
TIX TO ALDS GAME 1 AND GAME 2 = $100 US (approx, can't recall)
TWO VISITS TO GRANDSTAND = $600 CDN (my god... I was out of control...)
WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP STUFF FROM MLB.COM = $100 US and counting...

Mercy. But worth waiting a lifetime for. Thank you White Sox!

Way too much to quantify, especially after the bartabs for the ALCS clincher and the World Series winner.

None of the gifts I was given could top the 2 WS games the Sox won on my birthday.

Not fair - if you're counting bar tabs, I'm going to count the 55" HDTV I bought for the Series. Ya, I watch other stuff on it now - but that wasn't it's purpose! Then there is the beer and food bill for my game 1 WS and ALCS party - UGLY!!

I'm pushing 500 bucks at this point, which includes two glass jersey frames I just purchased from MLB.com at a ridicuously low price.

Probably $4-500...bought an authentic Pod black jersey, so that ran up the bucks pretty quickly among t-shirts, flags, pennants, DVD's, etc...Every day another box shows up at the front door....

I wish mlb.com would ship everything in ONE box!

$150 on Sox merchandise so far.

Sox hoodie; championship hats for myself, my wife and my dad; flag for grandpa's grave.

Can't wait till the full DVD box set comes out.
