Hey batter, batter: Sunday, the 2017 Major League Baseball season begins. This time last year, we postulated the Chicago Cubs would go all the way. Can they do it again? Or will it be the Cleveland Indians, the Cubs’ World Series rivals and current holder of baseball’s longest drought? Or perhaps in Boston, where Chris Sale changed the color of his Sox from White to Red, the team’s strength on the mound provides their chance at a championship.
Personalize your media room or “man cave” with this truly one-of-a-kind framed poster that displays your name on a jersey in your favorite team’s locker room, hung next to current players’ uniforms. In the locker room scene, you get your own stall, complete with a personalized name plate, equipment, and jersey bearing your name and favorite number. This priceless memento is encased in a stainless-steel frame with crystal-clear glass.
Nearly every family has one: the baseball trivia expert who can recite decades-old stats and recall famous plays from memory. A fitting and unique gift for such a fan is this personalized archive from The New York Times. The book brings together articles chronicling a fan’s favorite MLB team, including articles spanning from the team’s formative years to today. The bound book even displays the recipient’s name stamped in gold on the cover.
On off days, get your time on the field with this classic wooden pinball baseball game. A spring-loaded plunger “pitches” the ball – a stainless steel marble—onto the field of play. Players swing the wooden bat with a quick flip of a batting lever. The right touch launches the ball into one of the spaces designating a single, double, triple, or home run…all while avoiding one of “out” spaces that deposit the ball in a tray for another at-bat. Working LED stadium lights illuminate the playing field for night games.
Whether your favorite team is attempting to repeat history or finds itself in a rebuilding year, we wish you a winning season with hopes of the unique gift of a World Series Championship. Play ball!
