Today's mail included THREE of the MLB Fan Packs I requested by email! The first Fan Pack came from the Red Sox, and a bill...
First item I pulled out of the envelope:
Then, I pulled out one of these:
Up next, the 4th edition of the 2010 Schedule. Say what!? I am guessing they have different "versions" featuring other players, and this is the fourth:
That's not all that's included, though:
The second Fan Pack came from down the road in Houston.
First up, the 2010 Team Schedule:
Up next, a little bling:
The Astros included a page of activities:
And a 5x7 of Roy Oswalt:
Like the Red Sox, this was a nice variety of goodies - all for the asking!
The Seattle Mariners, though, take the prize for the best Fan Pack received yet!
We start off with a 2010 Team Schedule featuring Chone Figgins:
Then, the Mariners included something no other team has yet to include:
That's right, folks! A special "Fan Pack" set of baseball cards! Now, THAT is how you reach your fans! The cards are all attached on a perforated sheet:
And if that's not enough, how about a little poke at the rest of the MLB:
Nice! I love snarkiness done right!
But, the Mariners still had an envelope to fill, so they threw in some of their own bling:
And so your vehicle doesn't feel left out:
Oh, yeah! We've got a window cling! Seriously, the Mariner know how to reach out to their fans big time.
And we are STILL not done! We've got a photo fold-out with facsimile autographs on it, and a fold-out celebrating the 10th anniversary of SAFECO field:
On the back of the SAFECO fold-out, we find a full-color activity sheet (and, yes, it includes 'Baseball Sudoku'):
The Mariners Fan Pack is what I had hoped for when I received the Indians pack. Though, really, these three packs include enough fun stuff to make even a casual fan rally behind their team just little more than usual!
