A year ago, the SD SABR chapter hosted a baseball-themed Garage Sale at the Hall of Champions. We had so much fun doing that that we decided to do it again.
This Saturday, at Randy Jones’ Grill in Mission Valley, the Chapter will host its Second Annual Garage Sale. As with last year’s event, all monies raised will help support the Baseball Research Center. Come on down after you watch the Men’s Olympic Ice Hockey Final (starts at 7am that same day).
- When: Saturday 22 Feb 2014
- Where: RJ’s Grill, Hazard Center
- Times: 11:30am – 2:00pm
Admission is free. So what’s for sale?
Lots of memorabilia, very similar to last year’s event. Books; trading cards; pins, old tickets; photos; autographs; media guides, and much more.* Last year, I picked up a couple of books, Phil Nevin’s rookie card (because you HAVE to have that), and some old photos I thought were interesting.
I got a couple of Goose Gossage pins.
I also picked up a Randy Jones bobblehead.
I remember thinking, “Ha I bet Rick doesn’t have this.” At the time, I’d only known him about 2 weeks; I had no idea how extensive his Padres memorabilia collection was. Silly me.
Hope to see you there.
*Not a guarantee that every category of item listed will be available at Saturday’s event.
