No stimulus package means we have to redefine what sweet shelf candy we’re pursuing for Suns Swag this week. Ten dollar goodies, that’s what’s in store. If you’re one of the lucky ones, and you’re flush, then get after it.
Well, I didn’t notice that the shipping on this item was $13, so this entire article is already suspect. But we’re going to plow through nonetheless. Cool item here. Twenty-fifth anniversary book celebrating your Phoenix Suns. Various ticket stubs are included. The book contains nine autographs, but the seller concedes that they cannot be verified. That seller is the Arizona Humane Society, so you can do some good for $23 after shipping.
The 50th season for your Suns was arguably the worst in the history of the franchise. They racked up 21 wins, and the losses were gruesome. But the club did make it five decades in Phoenix, and there’s a lot to be said for that. Celebrate this high-point and low-point for the team for a grand total of nine chicken sandwiches after shipping.
Glasses such as these have been featured on Suns Swag for some time, and it’s no secret that this author is a fan of such offerings. Rarely has the deal been so sweet, though. The seller is in possession of a handful of Dick Van Arsdale and Paul Westphal collectable glasses. Perfect for cracking open a Michelob Ultra and watching your Suns tear through the Western Conference next season. The damage is a measly $5.70 after shipping.
I’m not a pin guy, but if you are, this is a buy. The seller writes:
“Phoenix suns Vintage Collector Pin Set Western Conference . Condition is Used.
Has been in a box in a closet for years.”
“Has been in a closet for years.” That’s how you know it’s good stuff. It’s “limited edition” and apparently only 2500 were made. That Western Conference pin caught my eye. Sweet get for $7 after shipping.
Ok, maybe I am a pin guy.
The pin on the right is nothing special. There are plenty of those available for purchase. But drink in the majesty of that Sir Charles pin on the right. That would look fantastic on your lapel during your next job interview. Take your wardrobe to the next level for $10 after shipping.
Gonna have to figure out the best way to display this one, but it’s cool. The seller’s notes:
“THIS TELEVISED NBA TILT TOOK PLACE ON OCTOBER 20,1973 ~ THE SUNS WON 118-108 AS VAN ARSDALE SCORED 37 POINTS....FOR THE HAWKS IT WAS BIG LOU HUDSON WITH 36 AND PISTOL PETE ADDING 25....HALF PAGE TV GUIDE AD MEASURES APPROXIMATELY 5 X 4 INCHES AND WILL BE SHIPPED NICELY BOARDED & BAGGED ON FULL TV GUIDE PAGE FOR $3.50.....”
Why don’t we get stuff like this anymore? This is awesome. Oh, right. Print media is dead. Nine and a quarter and it’s yours.
Had trouble finding much info on this one. The seller notes that “book has surface wear, some writing on 1st page and inside back cover.” An ‘84 publication means you’ll get to enjoy those 50 win seasons for the late 70’s and early 80’s. Creative Education is still around. You can find some more Suns reading material here. Adding the above to your bookshelf will run nine bucks after shipping.
