The lone bobblehead giveaway that I have received at an official stadium visit from the University of Rhode Island. Good ol' Delroy James holding on to the basketball and certainly not looking to make a pass
The lone bobblehead giveaway that I have received at an official stadium visit from Rhode Island.

During my recent visit to
Camden Yards, I was handed a replica Adam Jones away jersey upon arrival. This was probably one of the best stadium giveaways that I’ve received during my trips and it got me thinking back to some of the other collectibles gathering dust in my closet and office. While most are gimmicky and quite frankly junk, there are a few that I have used or worn thru the years. Here’s a look back in random order of an admittingly underwhelming list of some of these items (those I kept and those that I can remember disposing of).


  • White t-shirt commemorating the Sussex Skyhawks 2006 inaugural (and ill-fated) season
    ……….Skylands Park – Sussex Skyhawks
  • Delroy James Bobblehead
    ……….Ryan Center – Rhode Island Rams
  • Somerset Patriots logo t-shirt
    ……….TD Bank Ballpark – Somerset Patriots
  • Yellow Quinnipiac Bobcats t-shirt…It’s a good one too, just a shame the 2XL shirt falls halfway down by thigh
    ……….TD Bank Sports Center – Quinnipiac Bobcats
  • A “We Are Kent State” headband with yellow ‘crazy’ hair at the top
    ……….MAC Center – Kent State Golden Flashes
  • Adam Jones gray road Baltimore Orioles jersey (by far the most coveted giveaway I’ve received)
    ……….Camden Yards – Baltimore Orioles
  • White Pom-Pom
    ……….Beaver Stadium – Penn State Nittany Lions
  • Random carry-bag littered with advertisements
    ……….Sovereign Center – Reading Royals
