Mail Time! #23

Sorry for not having posted in a while! I’ve been so busy, plus I haven’t gotten too many packages these past few weeks

Today, I have 3 Fan Packs to show you.

The first of these is from the Miami Marlins20130304-235858.jpg

I first pulled out a 2013 pocket schedule20130304-235904.jpg

Followed by a letter20130304-235910.jpg

And a paper printout roster20130304-235916.jpg

I next found this logo sticker20130304-235922.jpg

And brochures as to how to get a Marlins license plate20130304-235928.jpg

And join the Marlins Fan Club (Which is actually a pretty cool deal if you ask me! I *might* get it)20130304-235937.jpg

After that, I pulled out these three player photo cards20130304-235943.jpg

Lastly, I pulled out this magnetic schedule. I love the Marlins new logo (AND HR Thingy), and I love bright colors- So I loved this magnetic schedule.20130304-235949.jpg

The next Fan Pack is from the Nebraska Corn Huskers20130304-235957.jpg

Inside, I found 2 football stickers20130305-000018.jpg

A baseball pocket schedule20130305-000023.jpg

And two LARGE posters20130305-000029.jpg20130305-000534.jpg

The final fan pack I have will BLOW YOU AWAY

I now know why the Houston Astros can’t afford any good players. They put all of their money into fan packs for their Minor-A Team. Here is the BOX that the Tri-City Valley Cats sent me20130305-000542

On the top, I found this team photo20130305-000549.jpg

A 2013 wall calendar20130305-000555.jpg

I then pulled out this card20130305-000601.jpg

And this sticker20130305-000607.jpg

The next item I pulled out was this small box (2 inches wide for reference)20130305-000612.jpg

I opened it up and BAM! I found this miniature replica NYPL Championship trophy!20130305-000618.jpg

This was the final item I pulled out of the box. A bobblehead box????20130305-000624.jpg

I opened it up to find this!20130305-000630.jpg

A Derek Jeter bobblehead?? How cool is that!?!?!

Wow… This was one of my best ever Mail Time entries, would you agree?

Mail Time! #17

Sorry I haven’t posted in a while! I have gotten a few packages in the past week that I wanted to share with you all!

On Friday (January 11th), I got this envelope from the Washington Nationals (Which proves that teams I emailed in the middle of November are still sending things out).
20130118-175430.jpg

Inside, I first pulled out this Natitude sticker:
20130118-175439.jpg

I then found out this poster:
20130118-175616.jpg

20130118-175624.jpg

The last thing I pulled out was this scratcher card:

20130118-175830.jpg

That’s all that I have for now. Considering the fact that the rate of Mail is slowing down, I will probably only get 1 mail entry up each week, with all of the mail from the week.

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!
