Sealed Pck of Reds Upper Deck Cards
1 Pocket Schedule
1 Reds Window Decal

I honestly didn't know that baseball teams even offered these. That is very cool. Are they listed as available on teams websites?

I've done a fan pack thread in the hockey forum and hernant15 has started one in the football forum. This should be in the baseball forum (where I have moved it) and I encourage you to keep trying the other teams and update your successes here.

Thanks for the heads up. I didn't think to look in the individual sports forums.

Jason, sorry I didn't see this earlier. I email the individual teams. There is contact email for each team on their websites. It's an inexpensive way to collect pocket schedules, yearbooks, programs, schedule magnets, player pictures, ect. You will occasionally get an autograph, as well. Last year the Red Sox sent me a package of Fenway dirt, a pocket schedule, and a signed photo of Wily Mo Pena. Pretty nice!

I just emailed the teams. I go to each team web site and use the email feature under "contact" and request a Fan Pack. I also include my address information in the original request. Most teams will respond to an email request. Some don't. Some teams ask you to fill out a contact form and will send you something if you fill out the form.

Not yet, but I just sent out requests last week via email. The Mets and Cubs usually respond. The Mets normally send there Fan Packs out at the end of the season.

Good deal! Keep it up! Usually you will get team promotional items, such as pocket schedules, post cards, ect., but you can also get some pretty cool collectibles in a Fan Pack. I sent out to the Orioles, as well, last week. Let us know what you get.

I'm sure you didn't mess up. Just let them know in your email that you are a fan of the team, and would like for them to send you a Fan Pack. Make sure you include your mailing address. Sometimes they will email you to let you know they sending something out, but usually they will just respond by sending you something.
