Are you an aficionado of good beer? Do you like baseball -- preferably the Atlanta Braves? Then local Atlanta craft brewer Sweetwater Brewing Company has got a deal for you. Sweetwater has teamed up with the Atlanta Braves to issue special commemorative packaging and cans for this summer. Here's a look:
You might be wondering why, on a baseball card blog, I'd sound like a complete shill for Sweetwater Brewing. Well, there's the obvious baseball tie-in for the Braves. But, I have been seeing a lot of Braves tie-ins lately to beer and beer-related items.
So, while I sort through all of the cards I've gotten recently from friends in the blogosphere and from the my local card show, I wanted to pose this question:
If you are a team collector, do you collect these types of items?
If you are a player collector, do you seek out oddballs like this?
From my perspective, as a Brewers collector, if something like this were to pop up and was readily available, I would probably pick it up or seek to have a relative in Wisconsin get it if they could. If the item was one of my main guys -- Spahn, Mathews, Adcock, Carter, Yount, Molitor, Braun, Segura, Lucroy, or Gomez -- I'd probably try to get my hands on it.
Now, my question to you out-of-town Braves fans who might not have Sweetwater available to you:
Should I sacrifice my liver and drink some beer so you can have a nice Braves collectible box like this?
Note: I would happily drink this beer with or without the Braves logos on them!
Let me know your thoughts!
