Padres Stickers

Stickers are a thing you don’t see very often anymore. Back in the day there would always be some sort of bumper sticker giveaway, with some sort of promotion on the back and the catch phrase for that year.

It’s fun to look back at these and laugh at the taglines. What does “let yourself go” even mean? “Catch us if you can”? How cute, for a team who had finished above .500 once in their history at that point, to say something like that. Perhaps the team became tired of peeling off the stickers placed on the nether regions of the stadium by unruly fans and decided to quit giving them away? Regardless of the reason, RIP Bumper Stickers, you were taken from us far too soon.

 

 

Described as an episode of Hoarders but with Padres stuff instead of dead cats, .400 in ’94 can be found posting on Padres Public every Wednesday once in a blue moon and also can be found on Twitter & Facebook.

    I think I have a couple of 2004 (?) ones around here somewhere. They’re round with the shampoo logo and say “Play Downtown”.
