Collecting the Sox: 2013 World Series

Yeah, this will sound terrible to other fans. But, all these Boston World Championships are starting to get expensive!

I talked about this a few years ago, but it’s worth mentioning again. Collecting things from a Red Sox World Championship might be the most fun aspect of Collecting the Sox.

There’s just so much out there to collect. Both in quantity, and variety. I’ve already purchased as many different newspapers as I can get my hands on proclaiming the World Championship. I’m searching for that perfect photo to hang on the wall. I already bought my commemorative can of Coke. I’m on the hunt for a fantastic baseball.

But, that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

What about DVDs? There’s a ton to choose from. MLB will release its official World Series DVD. How can you not want that? NESN will come out with its own version, recapping the season. You really need both in order to relive the entire season in all its glory. Of course, you also need the DVD box set for the World Series. Who wouldn’t want to have copies of every game of the Series?

Or t-shirts? The official championship shirt is actually half decent this year. I'd consider wearing it. Or, there are tons of less official ones out there. Have a ball!

You like hats? Again, the official locker room version isn't nearly as outlandish as they usually are. But, of course, manufactures have come to your aid if your tastes land elsewhere. 

And that's just the beginning. Keep your eyes open for cereal boxes, magazines, Christmas ornaments, and more! It could go on forever.

The best part of all this? Just about every time you turn around, you're reminded that the Red Sox are the World Champions. It wasn't a dream. Obviously, it really happened. I can't go to a gas station, or book store, or supermarket without all this gear reminding me of that great night. It's like I've been totally immersed in the Red Sox for the week. People keep asking me if my feet have hit the floor yet. How could they, if all these collectibles keep lifting me up again? And, that's what collecting the Sox is all about, right? Reminding you how much fun it is to be a Red Sox fan.

How can that not be a wonderful thing?

What have you picked up already? What are you looking for?
