If there is one thing I love it is giveaways. The only problem with giveaways is the fact that for some reason the best giveaways are scheduled whenever I inexplicably can’t go to a game, and then when I check the giveaway is up on eBay for $50. Giveaways are often ridiculous collector’s items, giving people the impression that they just have got to get all of them. Disappointingly, even if you go to a giveaway game chances can be slim that you get whatever the giveaway is that day
These reasons are why I think that the National’s hosting Teddy’s Garage Sale is a great idea. From September 24th to the 26th, during the series with the Marlins, Teddy’s Garage Sale will have a limited amount of old giveaways out for sale. Each special ticket, which start at $18, comes with a voucher with one free giveaway item. Every day of the three-day event there will be new items out. An array of bobbleheads, a baseball grill, Nationals water bottles, and many different T-shirts are will all be out for sale.
This is the first event of its kind for the Nationals and I have a feeling that it will be a hit for everyone from collectors to casual fans. I think this is going to be a hit for the Nationals as every fan has a second chance at a giveaway they were dying to get their hands on. The fact that there are multiple days to the event where there will be different things will ensure that there will be people going on multiple days to try and get the collectible that got away.
