2011 Fan Pack Challenge: Oakland Raiders

It has been a while since I received a fan pack, but it’s always a nice surprise to find a big envelope in the mailbox. The Oakland Raiders didn’t send a schedule, but they sent a nice shiny page of stickers and a window sticker, a black & white photo of the team with “happy holidays” written underneath, and a folder. But it’s not a pocket folder, nor a hanging folder. I’m not really sure what I can do with this particular folder. Oh well.

Here’s their score:
The inclusion of pocket schedule(s) = 0 points
Stickers = 5
Football cards = 0
High-quality promotional items = 1 (folder)
Other stuff = 1 (b&w team “happy holidays” photocopy)
Timeliness = 0
TOTAL SCORE = 7 POINTS

  1. Since you sort of brought it up, do you “do” anything with your fan packs? I confess mine are mostly in their original envelopes in a couple of boxes. I gave my wife a Jaguars pen and a Dodgers keyring.

  2. I put the pocket schedules in baseball card pages in a binder. The stickers are used to decorate my binders. The other things that have practical uses, I use…pens, keychains, whatever. The Falcons flag is hanging in my mancave.

    And for the stuff I won’t use (temp tattoos, player postcards, etc.), I send them to someone that might like them. They might not. But at least I don’t have to look at it anymore. 🙂
