I haven’t been getting a lot of mail recently. Back in August 2012 (when I didn’t have a blog), I got two or three things a day over a two week span. Now, I don’t get much. I need to ask for more fan packs.
Going back to 2012, the Rome Braves sent me an awesome fan pack that included a yearbook, towel, and thunder sticks. I was hoping for the same result when I got this in the mail on Mon. the 13th:
Here is what I got:
2012 Rome Braves Team Photo
2013 Pocket Schedule
“Romey’s Rascal” Bracelet
Picture of State Mutual Stadium
2013 Magnet Schedule
The Rome Braves have the best Minor League Fan Pack, and I am waiting to see if anyone can break that. The Rochester Red Wings could have done it, but they charged $10 (they said they would send a yearbook, pocket schedules, baseball cards, etc.).
The other fan pack I got came on the same day, and it was from the New Britain Rock Cats:
They had a pretty nice fan pack:
2013 Pocket Schedule
Ben Revere Baseball Card
I think it’s weird that I got the Revere card after I got the one in the Walgreens pack. I still like it. I might even start a Ben Revere collection.
That was all I got. This week (5/19-5/25), I didn’t get anything, so on Saturday there will be a post on baseball cards. The game on 5/19 should be up shortly- I have been busy with schoolwork and MLB Ballpark Empire on Facebook- you should try it. Thanks for reading, and thanks to the Braves and the Rock Cats for the fan packs!
On January 7, 2013, I received the first 4 fan packs of 2013. They were from the New Britain Rock Cats, Rancho Cucamonga Quakes, Tri-City Valley Cats, and the Toledo Mud Hens. Each of the fan packs I received were from teams in which I had never received anything from before. Here are some pictures:
New Britain Rock Cats- This team took 6 Days to respond. I sent a request on 1/1/2013, and they were kind enough to send me 4 2012 pocket schedules:
The Rancho Cucamonga Quakes took 7 Days, because I sent a request on Dec. 31:
Next is the Tri-City Valley Cats (sorry about the poor photos). They took 7 Days like the Quakes:
The final fan pack is from the Toledo Mud Hens. They sent 4 2012 and 4 2013 pocket schedules, and they took 15 Days. I requested pocket schedules on Dec. 23:
I really enjoy getting items from minor league teams, even if they are just pocket schedules. Normally, teams don’t reply or they say I need to send a SASE, so it’s great to get this. Thanks to the 4 teams that were kind enough to send something, and thanks for reading!
