MONDAY’S #REDS LINEUP AT MILWAUKEE; UNPACKING REDS RELICS
After a busy weekend in Cincinnati and at Great American Ball Park, I’m happy to report that the stadium is still standing and looking flawless…
I finally worked up the courage to move to the suburbs, and during the recent relocation, I dug up some old Reds stuff that I forgot I had.
Check it out…
Before bobbleheads, the Reds worked their marketing magic by luring fans with tube socks. That’s right, these bad boys were a giveaway in 1987. Sadly, I never had a chance to use the coupon. RIP Kinney.
When I worked on the Reds ground crew in the late 90s, one of my favorite players was Pete Harnisch; super, World-Class guy and arguably one of the funniest people on the planet. I found this signed jersey among my loot…
And here’s even more Major League work clothing – my nasty old ground crew polo. I offered it up to the Reds Hall of Fame, but for whatever reason, they politely declined.
Did you have these 1999 issues of TV Guide?
I have lots more that I won’t bore you with. The unpacking process turned into a bit of a sentimental journey down memory lane. I can’t wait to have some of it displayed in my new place (probably not the socks).
