During the “Umpteen Days of Christmas“, I’m giving away some really cool Reds-related stuff here on Better Off Red.  Several Reds departments within the front office have graciously donated these prizes as a “thank you” for your support.

Congratulations to Day 10 winner – Harmony Brooks!

Today’s gifts are a miniature pewter Johnny Bench statue courtesy of the Reds Hall of Fame and Museum and a Reds home jersey with “Valiquette” on the back courtesy of the Reds Authentics department.

Mr. Bench is one of our family’s fav Reds of all times! Would love to win this one. Thanks! Happy Holidays!

This would be a great gift for my dad becase he like Johnny Benchand I do not have anything for him for Christmas yet.

I am a product of the Big Red Machine. Graduated HS in May 76, sandwiched in between the two World Championships. This Jersey and Johnny’s statue will be perfect for my Reds Mancave. I need something to put on top of my recently aquired Turnstile from the GABP and this just might be the item.

A gaggle of friends is attending a series at Wrigley next August, I pledge to wear the Valiqiette jersey in the left field bleachers and submit photographic evidence afterwards to Mr Ramsey, do it can be redistributed with my expressed written consent.

Let me just add that I can replace Valiquette very easily with Bartholomew, saving the A and last E and reusing the L. Think Green!

i would love this im a loyal reds fan. and i dont have a jersey so that would be awesome to win one

I would love to show my Reds pride to my friends if I won these 2 items :) Happy Hollidays and can’t wait for the 2012 season! @runrgrl12

Although I have lived just outside Kansas City for the past seven years, I was born and raised as a Reds fan in Dayton, OH. My love for the Reds has only gotten stronger since moving to KC, and I try to showcase my dedication to the team every chance I get. I deserve to win today’s giveaway because I have stuck by the Reds through good times and bad, and I will always do so. People often tell me a Reds win or loss should not dictate whether I am in a good or bad mood, and my response to them is always the same – “let’s just hope the Reds win tonight.”

Not sure what the Valiquette is all about, but I would still love to have these awesome prizes!

I am currently single, and I think that Reds jersey could provide me the much-needed break that I am looking for. Happy holidays everyone. Be good Reds fans and if you can’t be good, be good at it!

I love Johnny Bench!

My dad is a retired Army Colonel from Cincinnati who has served overseas on multiple occasions to include a year in Iraq. He graduated from Anderson Highschool in 1976 and it goes without saying, he is a huge Big Red Machine fan! Now living in Kentucky as he continues to work serving injured and fallen soldiers, he is currently trying to create a “Big Red Machine” themed man cave. I can’t think of a better addition go his man cave than this statue and jersey proudly displayed.

i should win because ive been good this year. im taking honor classes and im on honor roll

Great gifts that would compliment our Reds collection!

One of my best Reds/Johnny Bench moments I was present for was September 17,1983, the first Johnny Bench Night. Seeing Johnny catch a game one last time and hit his 389th and last homerun is a memory I will treasure forever.

I have lived in Southern California all of my life and most of my family are Dodgers or Angels fans, but it was because of Johnny Bench that I became a huge Reds fan. And to win this would be great.

Who wouldn’t want a Phillipe Valiquette jersey? The pride of Quebec.

bench is awesome. i need it.

Because everyone here in Va. are Braves fans. Needs to start converting them over to the light.

As a life-long Reds fan, I still have very few items from the Big Red Machine. I would LOVE to have the Bench figure! It would look nice next to my baseball autographed by Morgan. Go Reds!
