Pennant Race Special

The Toronto Blue Jays are making some noise in the American League East after all their trades. Why not cheer them on? Right now we have a pennant race special – a Riddell miniature batting helmet, a Roberto Alomar mug (the first Blue Jay elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame) with a milk chocolate baseball and jelly beans – all for $29.95. Show your team spirit. It also makes a great coaches’ gift.
