Here’s Jenn’s Wish List:
Wow, we already have gobs of Wish Lists emailed in thanks to the post on the community MLBlog. This is another cool way to get traffic to your own blog. Here’s one from Jeremy at homerfoodandhistory.mlblogs.com, and I am just going to post these verbatim without editing so feel free to include links and even images within your email if you want to be included. Will gradually get to them all so keep an eye out here…
Here is my list starting with,
1. Toronto Blue Jays Alberta Cooperstown Knit Cap (what is this knit cap thing???? Its a toque and will always be a toque as far as Im concerned).
I need this if winter in Toronto is going to be as bad as it was last
year. The retro look is becoming very popular (i.e. with flashback
Fridays last year, where the Jays wore their old powder blues),
gotta respect the tradition. I bet some Jays wore this type of toque
in early April, when the Jays played in Exhibition Stadium.
I’m really in the toque market right now. It is starting to get very
cold here! This one is also cool! I wish the Jays will one day be in
the toque market, playing October baseball away.
The commemorative stuff, ya, I am always all over that. I even have a
piece of turf from the Skydome, when they had the astroturf stuff.
This would be a great gift for me.
Can you believe, as much as I love the Jays, I don’t own a Blue Jays Cap. I’m hoping on changing that in the near future! This would be the perfect hat. All-Star edition for the last year of Yankee Stadium.
was the lone representative for the Blue Jays in the game. He is my
favorite player! When I wear this around campus, people will know I’m
a serious fan! Please Santa, I’ve been a good 26 year old!
There are a lot of cool retro jerseys at mlbshop,
I’ve always like the padre ones. This (ex-Jay) David Winfield jersey
is styling, but I would want to personalize one to say Gaston on back
(going back to his playing days with San Diego). That would be a good jersey for next season!

The Gift Guru also has found a great bat-display case, in case you are among those battling for that Bill Hall pink bat that he used to slug a 10th-inning walk-off homer on Mother’s Day. It’s the leader in the clubhouse so far among highest bids on that MLB.com Auction that benefits the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.
Guru loves it because: The first-ever Japanese catcher in the Majors homered in his first two games.
Guru loves it because: If he’s in the 3,000-hit club someday at Cooperstown, how cool will it be to say you got the halfway ball? And it’s signed.
Guru loves it because: A lot of Red Sox fans already are Coco Nuts after Crisp’s first week.
Guru loves it because: Loaded with everything you really want instead of 473 million calories.Jose Contreras Game-Worn Autographed Road Jersey
Guru loves it because: Proceeds go to Chicago White Sox Charities and it’s a great collectible from the world championship season.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day to me fellow MLBloggers. Mr. O’Guru has a favorite color today and here are some goodies I found in Aisle 7:
The very same green Mexico Authentic 2006 World Baseball Classic Fitted Alternate Cap that MLBlogs’ own Jorge Cantu is modeling in the picture at right. Even Fernando Valenzuela modeled one in the blog.
2006 Upper Deck Series 1 set. That’s Derek Jeter trotting around the bases on the foil jacket. What’s inside? Ah, that is the great mystery that has made us love trading cards forever. The Guru is old enough to remember what it sounded like to put a trading card in the spokes of your bike.
Barry Zito BP Jersey. This jersey carefully combines a micro-denier
polyester waffle-knit design with reinforced seams, vented mesh panels,
and underarm gussets for added breathability. Besides, 75 is one of the Guru’s favorite baseball numbers. You never have to retire it.
Kellia reminds me about the green grass on a baseball field, and indeed it is the biggest reason of all that we celebrate baseball’s primary color. To that end, I saved the best for last in this story posted today on MLB.com.
Bid at the MLB.com Auction on Scott Podsednik?s game-worn, autographed Half-Way to St. Patrick’s Day Uniform worn on September 9, 2005. Proceeds from the auction benefit Chicago White Sox Charities, which
supports hundreds of Chicago-based organizations including those
leading the fight against cancer or dedicated to improving the lives of
Chicago’s youth through education and athletics.
It was impossible to list one of the following without the other:
New York Yankees Irish Pride T-Shirt by Lee Sport.
(Wee willowy lads and lassies, that’s a 1900 boxing match just waiting to happen.)
St. Patrick’s Day Hooley Adjustable Caps. Pick your favorite team, but you would have to print it out and tape it onto your hair to be able to wear it today. Sorry, the Guru was busy following the World Baseball Classic, Spring Training and his beloved Hoosiers in the Big Dance or he would have suggested this last week!
There’s plenty more at the MLB.com Shop for the green in you.
