Chicago White Sox Memorabilia

Chicago White Sox Autographed Memorabilia
Fans do not like the term, rebuilding but that is exactly what the Chicago White Sox are doing at the exact moment in time but there’s a rich history for the pale hose in Chicago. A history that includes three World Series titles, countless Hall of Famers and plenty of baseball signed for fans. The Chicago, Illinois based franchise was established in 1901. The White Sox are one of the American League’s charter franchise and has been playing ball on the southside of Chicago for over a century. Top moments of the Sox franchise include the 2005 World Series and the careers of Harold Baines, Frank Thomas and old-timer, Nellie Fox. A low-point in the franchise was the “Black Sox Scandal” following the 1919 World Series, where many players were accused of shaving points and fixing game results. The White Sox operate as Chicago’s second-team as far as fan interaction and attendance. The rival Cubs have been the lovable losers for years.

2005 World Series Champions
It has been almost a century since a Chicago based ball club hoisted the Commissioner’s Trophy. The 2005 Chicago White Sox shocked the sport with an unpredictable title run led by savvy veterans and true grit. The pale hose were led by the usual suspects during the 2000’s: Pierzynski, Konerko, Dye and Buehrle. Of course every World Series run has its unknown heroes. The southsiders suited up AJ Pierzynski, Paul Konerko, Tadahito Iguchi, Juan Uribe, Joe Crede, Scott Podsednik, Aaron Rowand, Jermaine Dye & Carl Everett on the night they clinched the World Series against the Houston Astros. The pitching staff did not light up the radar guns, but consistently shut down the American League. The pitching staff was led by Freddy Garcia, Jose Contreras, Jon Garland and fan-favorite, Mark Buehrle. The ’05 Sox were managed by Ozzie Guillen.

Chicago White Sox Farm System
From worst to first. In the 2016 offseason, the Chicago White Sox were dealing like a baseball card trader. Swapping their top pieces to completely overhaul a tepid minor league system. The Sox acquired the biggest prospects in the game: Lucas Giolito, Yoan Moncada, Michael Kopech, Carson Fulmer & Reynaldo Lopez. Giolito & Moncada are the new face(s) of a franchise that was in dire need of change. GM Kenny Williams made some trades to get younger and it will take some time to see dividends but there is no question the talent is now on its way to Chicago.

Down on the Farm
Fans are excited for the arrival of top prospects: Eloy Jimenez, Ian Happ, and Jeimer Candelario. The Cubs run into a good problem, not having any spots to play these young players. Maybe Theo Epstein has some tricks up his sleeve to swap for veteran pieces during a pennant chase like he did in 2016 when he traded #1 Prospect Gleyber Torres to New York (AL) for Aroldis Chapman. Chapman was a key contributor on the World Series championship team.

The snakes are coming off of a disappointing 69-win season but have a healthy core returning to compete for a NL West title.

Kansas City Royals Memorabilia

Kansas City Royals Memorabilia
Right on the border of Kansas and Missouri resides Kauffman Stadium, home of the Kansas City Royals. The Royals franchise was dormant for nearly three decades until a core group of stars helped bring the passion back to the fan base. A long, trying rebuild finally ended in 2015 as the Kansas City Royals defeated the New York Mets in the World Series to end a thirty-year title drought. General Manager Dayton Moore can take a lot of the credit for bringing winning baseball back to KC. Moore’s blueprint included the acquisition or drafting of Eric Hosmer, Salvador Perez, Alex Gordon, Yordan Ventura, Mike Moustakas and more key players. This group of star’s autographs were highly coveted after the final out in New York City. Autograph prices nearly doubled for all players on the active playoff roster. The best items signed by Kansas City Royals would be a 2015 World Series Baseball. These balls commemorate the amazing series against the Mets. Throughout the years, Kansas City autograph collectors and fans have collected autographed jerseys, bats, baseballs and photos. A good Royals collection must contain the past and present. It is relatively easy to track down a signature from a member of 2015’s club but to truly honor the tradition of the Royals, a walk down memory lane is in order to boost a collection. Which players should a collector target? Where can they find these exclusive signed Royals memorabilia items? These and more will be answered below.

1985 World Series Memorabilia
Missourians will never forget the “I-70″ Series between the hated St. Louis Cardinals and the Kansas City Royals. The Royals ultimately came out on top but it took them seven games to cage the Cardinals. Manager Dick Howser orchestrated through the American League gauntlet with a 91-71 regular season record and a 4-3 series victory over the upstart Toronto Blue Jays. Not every Game 7 of the World Series is created equal, some include pitch-by-pitch, edge of your seat drama but in this Game 7, the Royals cruised to victory, 11-0 in front of a capacity crowd inside Kauffman Stadium. These World Series Champion Royals became immortal in the midwest. The World Series roster included: Lonnie Smith, Willie Wilson, George Brett, Frank White, Jim Sunberg, Steve Balboni, Darryl Motley, Buddy Biancalana and World Series MVP Bret Saberhagen. Autographed memorabilia from any one of these players may not hold strong value over team but if you were lucky enough to get a team signed baseball from this team, that is where the value lies. A combo item signed by George Brett and Bret Saberhagen is a strong piece of sports memorabilia. Those lucky enough to witness both World Series titles would love this World Series Ticket Collection featuring replica tickets from both the 1985 & 2015 World Series.

2015 World Series Memorabilia
The Royals rode the momentum of a great 2014 campaign to qualify for the postseason with a league leading 95-67 record. Dayton Moore pulled the trigger mid-season to acquire All Star Johnny Cueto and Ben Zobrist to an already first place club. These acquisitions paid off when Cueto got the ball in the postseason and Ben Zobrist continued to come up with clutch hits. The Royals scratched and clawed through the Houston Astros in the ALDS then outlasted the Toronto Blue Jays in six games to advance to their second straight World Series. When November rolled around, the Royals lineup consisted of: Salvador Perez, Eric Hosmer, Omar Infante, Alcides Escobar, Mike Moustakas, Alex Gordon, Jarrod Dyson and Lorenzo Cain. The pitching staff for Kansas City was led by Yordano Ventura, Edinson Volquez, Johnny Cueto and anchored by Wade Davis and Kelvin Herrera. Ned Yost was on his game for most of the postseason, pulling the right strings when needed and had his Royals running on all cylinders. The Royals closed out the World Series with a remarkable comeback win at Citi Field. The key play in the World Series was the Eric Hosmer slide to tie the game. Christian Colon came off the bench to take the lead then the rest is baseball history. Wade Davis recorded the final out via strikeout. The best memorabilia from the 2015 fall classic would be a team signed Major League Baseball, a photo of Wade Davis getting trampled on the mound or a photograph of Eric Hosmer’s daring dash home.

Down on the Farm
Kansas City Royals memorabilia collectors are waiting anxiously for top prospects Hunter Dozier, Jorge Bonifacio, Matt Strahm, Kyle Zimmer and Chase Vallot. Prospecting for autographs can be a tricky business venture. Royals fan know this especially after hearing about Top Prospect Bubba Starling for years only to see him fizzle out in the Minor Leagues. KC collectors who bought into the idea of prospecting did well when Dayton Moore’s top talent reached the bigs and ultimately won the World Series.
