On Friday, I got two Fan Packs, one from the White Sox, the other from the Indians. You can read that blog entry here.
As I write this, it is Saturday afternoon and I just got 2 more Fan Packs in the mail, one from the Diamondbacks and the other from the Rangers.
Here is an updated list of all of the responses that I have gotten so far from MLB Teams.
Blue Jays– I need to send a self-addressed, stamped envelope
Braves- Send them a Postcard
Cubs- Send them a Postcard
Giants- Emailed me a PDF Fan pack
Indians– Fan pack sent out to mail- ARRIVED
Padres- Unable to fulfill Request
Phillies- Postal request
Rangers- Donation needed… $5 Donation made….ARRIVED
Tigers- No giveaways, but will mail fan pack
Twins- Send Postcard from hometown
White Sox- ARRIVED
Yankees- Send Postcard
I opened it up to find it was a 20-page booklet that looks like something would be given out to all fans at the entrance of a game.
I’m going to show you all of the pages in this pamphlet.
Honestly, I find it kind of unfortunate. It’s just like the Indians.
Hey, it is still free stuff!
The second package today I received was from the Rangers. On their website, they request that you make a small donation in order to receive a Fan Pack. I made a $5 to the Texas Rangers Baseball Foundation in order to receive my fan pack. You can find the donation page here. I wonder if you get more stuff if you donate more…
Usually, those are about $30-$50! Pretty cool!
That’s all for this mail entry. Maybe I should come up with a name for these? Any ideas? Let me know in the comments down below.
I will continue to write more entries as I get mail from teams. I still have a lot of postcards that I will try to send to teams within the next week.
