GypsyFaith Bazaar


Comiskey Park Welcomes you White Sox American League Matchbook Magnet (MM136)

We’re heavy on baseball in our collection, but it is the world’s most romantic sport according to my cousin Bob. I LOVE the SOX baseball in this image and the two-tone way they drew the player throwing.  First the Sox were the Cornhuskers, then the Saint Paul Saints, then the White Stockings – and now they’re just Sox.  It’s REALLY cool that this is the team of “Shoeless Joe” Jackson who hit a walk-off home run on July 20th, 1919 (Alas, the Yankees must have been sad…).  The team used to be nicknamed the Go-Go Sox, which is just adorable.

The image you see is exactly what we used to produce the magnet.  (We include 1 free GypsyFaith sticker per order.)

All GypsyFaith magnets are double the strength of a normal refrigerator magnet; this magnet will hold several pieces of paper to a surface without sliding.  The surface is textured, so it does not scratch.  We developed it over a period of several years with our production partner in China.  It took us a long, long time to get to this PVC product.  Our intention, as we developed this product, was to make it as durable as our handmade magnet products were when we first began selling them more than 14 years ago.

Images used to make our magnets are scanned at 9600dpi resolution, reduced to 960dpi for production.

SIZE:  This magnet is exactly 1.835 x 2.362 inches OR 4.66 x 5.999 cm (It is about the size of the original matchcover.)

PACKAGING:  This magnet is packaged in a hard plastic container for retail sale, then we place it into the mailer.

It ships in a hand addressed, postage stamped padded mailer.

*We ship First Class US Mail for our customers domestic and international; for domestic orders the ship time is approximately 7 days.  We do not expedite shipping.  Cost for shipping, as well as tax, is calculated at checkout.
