5. 10 Year Anniversary Promotions (All of them)
Ok, this one I am cheating slightly with, but the Nationals are rolling out a series of single game promotions to specifically honor the 10 years of the club. All of which should be great pieces to add into any Nationals collections.
It starts with a Commemorative Collectors Tin on Opening Day, April 6th (first 25,000). What can you do this with tin? I’m sure some great things. It probably come in handy most for keeping all of the other great 10 year promotion items.
Next, is a (hopefully) stylish stationery set for us all to journal our wonderful experiences at Nationals Park. If you don’t like to journal, then you can carry this around, and maybe people with think you are the intellectual type. Either way, this is a pretty neat giveaway that you can get on April 21 (first 10,000).
The following will be a Bottle Stopper that honors the ten years of this franchise. If your wine bottles were feeling left out of the Natitude action, they won’t be anymore! You can get this on May 5 (first 10,000).
The next big ticket item is a ten year coin. You may think that coin collecting is a forgotten thing, but the Nationals want you to know that it is still cool. It will also look great in the nifty tin you got. You can get this one on June 2 (first 10,000).
The last must get item is a Lapel-Pin to honor the anniversary. This is my personal favorite because I want to show my curly W on all occasions. With this, even in my sleakest suit, everyone can know where my true fandom lies. If you want to do the same go on July 7 (first 10,000).
There will be a few other ten year promotions, but these are the items that any collection needs the most.
