Anyone else old enough to remember the “yellow and blue make green!” Ziplock commercials? No? Just me? Okay. The Red Sox always have a strong fan pack entry that’s anchored by a little baggie of dirt from Fenway Park. Unfortunately for me, that baggie opened up in transit. I did manage to transfer the dirt out of the envelope into a ziplock bag. Great design on the pocket schedule featuring the Commissioner’s Trophy. And the handwritten note from Fenway Ambassador Phil Derick is a nice touch, particularly on the Sox’ championship stationary that they’ve had to update a little more often in the last decade than they had in the previous 80-some years.
