Field Dirt from Home Plate from Paul Konerko’s Last Game
White Sox Charities
Retail Price: $20.00 ($3.95 s&h)
Yes, this is a strange product or gift, but here is something to get the White Sox fan that has everything of the White Sox, right? How many folks have a jar of dirt for the final game of Paul Konerko’s career?
I think it is a neat idea, and you are supporting a good cause in the process with this. They are selling these at $20 until Dec. 31, but this would be a fun gift to get someone, and if nothing else, the packaging of the dirt is at least a good talking point for conversation.
Plus, it is a small way to have a keepsake of the Captain’s final game with the White Sox, so there is that as well.
