Review: Man Crate of Chicago White Sox

Ever wonder what to get a baseball fan who pretty much has everything?

Recently, I received a “Man Crate” of the Chicago White Sox, and I must say it is one of the most unique baseball items I’ve received.

In this case, unique is good.

You’ve never heard of a Man Crate?

Let me tell you about what it entails.

First off, it is exactly what it sounds like … a crate full of “man gifts.”

IMG_20140505_221532_154The crate includes four Cooperstown glasses, four wooden coasters with carved-in numbers, a bag of peanuts, a bag of sunflower seeds, a bag of Cracker Jacks and a bag of beer nuts.

For me, it makes a perfect gift because all of us can use these items when watching baseball.

The crate I received was one of the Chicago White Sox, and the glasses have the White Sox logo on them as well, with the White Sox logo being the 1983 “SOX” logo, which is one of my favorites.

As for the glasses, Man Crate describes them as follows:

“These vintage pint glasses harken back to the simpler, sepia-toned days when Mario’s Mendoza batting line was just an unfortunate slump.”

For us baseball fans, I like that idea of honoring the past of the game.

The cost of a “Man Crate” is $89.99 on mancrates.com, and the fun part about these crates you actually have to pry the crate open with a mini crowbar that is provided with the purchase.

As I said earlier … this is a unique gift and would make for a good gift idea for Father’s Day.

Here is what Man Crate writes about their product:

“We’re so sure the person getting the Man Crate you’re about to send will be thrilled, we offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee, aka the High Five Guarantee, on all crates we sell.”

All I can say is as someone who is picky about their baseball products, I really enjoyed the Man Crate, and it is a product I think others would enjoy receiving or giving as a gift as well.

I don’t think anyone who receives one of these Man Crates would be disappointed … at least I wasn’t.
