Mail Time! #16

This is my first Mail entry in a little while. I decided to take a quick break from it all and do some other stuff. (AKA, I haven’t gotten much!)

On Monday, I got this envelope from the Dolphins:20130105-171251.jpg

I first pulled out this letter:20130105-171300.jpg

Then, I found this mini-pennant:20130105-171308.jpg

I got a Dolphins bumper sticker:20130105-171315.jpg

After that I pulled out a pocket schedule:20130105-171323.jpg20130105-171332.jpg

Then, I found a small logo sticker:20130105-171342.jpg

I then pulled out a large photo of Jose Philibin:20130105-171349.jpg

I finally pulled out a photo of T Jake Long:20130105-171358.jpg

On Friday the 4th, I got this envelope from the Los Angeles Lakers:20130105-171408.jpg

I found a letter:20130105-171426.jpg

There were two photos inside. The first was double-sided with a 2012-2013 schedule on one side:20130105-171434.jpg

And a photo of the starting 5 on the other:20130105-171441.jpg

The 2nd photo I pulled out was double-sided as well. This was the front side:20130105-171454.jpg

The Back side:20130105-171501.jpg

Works for me! 😉

The next item was not a Fan Pack. In December, I ordered a Bakersfield Blaze (High-A Affiliate of the Reds- I saw them play in this game in Modesto) Stocking Stuffer. Unfortunately, these are no longer available for sale. It arrived on Saturday January 5th.

Here is the box that it arrived in:20130105-233019.jpg20130105-233026.jpg

The first think I took out was this box:20130105-233032.jpg

When I opened it up, I found a Josh Hamilton bobblehed:20130105-233037.jpg

I noticed it was broken, so I immediately emailed the Blaze. I got a quick reply that the company that makes their bobblehead giveaways just makes flimsy bobbleheads. They then volunteered to send me a new one if I wanted! Great people in the front office in Bakersfield! Go over and give them a LIKE on Facebook here.

I then found this:20130105-233048.jpg

Inside, there was this Bakersfield Logo shirt:20130105-233105.jpg

With a 12 on the back:20130105-233109.jpg

As well as this voucher for 4 General Admission tickets for a 2013 Game:20130105-233055.jpg

I finally pulled out this baseball that I will assume was game-used:20130105-233100.jpg

Cool Stuff!

REMINDER: This is no longer for purchase.

There is also another shirt that they are sending me in March! And this was all on $20!

That is it for this Mail Time! entry. I hope you all enjoyed. Thanks for reading and check back often!
