Extreme Bargain Hunting at Giants Dugout Store
A quick perusal of the AT&T Park store's current bargain rack revealed that there are any number of steals to be had by the fan who doesn't give a whit what name is on the back of his or her jersey, so long as it reads "Giants" across the front.
Exhibits A and B, pictured above were these $10 Ryan Garko and Kevin Frandsen shirts. Garko batted .235 in 40 quiet games for the team last year and is now riding the pine for the Texas Rangers (perhaps more notably, he looked like the missing Zito brother. I like to call him "Biff Zito."). Frandsen, meanwhile, is a local guy who just never managed to latch on with the Giants and was traded during spring training to the Boston Red Sox for three magic beans.
But here's the coup de grâce: A game-worn Ryan Garko pre-game warmup!
This beauty has been marked down from $250 to $125 to $60. And they've got a lot of them, so you can play the odds it'll be marked down again.
You can also pick up game-worn pregame duds from fellow Giants luminaries Steve Holm, Waldis Joaquin, Billy Sadler, and others. Perhaps the No. 1 selling point for these jerseys: No names on back.
