Philadelphia Phillies Matchbook Sticker (MB100)
This is one of my favorite magnets. I love baseball. I was a Yankees fan for a little while but when I met my husband he was so crazy for the Braves I fell for them too. I love the huge sweep of green that is baseball and the meandering lethargy that is punctuated by frenzied sport. I like the hand signals, the whap of the bat on the ball, the slouch and smirk of the big stars, the taunts, the superstitions, and the fans who sometimes get to hold onto the means of play when the ball ends up in the stands. There is something incredibly compelling about the Phillies, too; they seem precious like an old toy, like some family heirloom that’s been loved and handled for generations.
In 1940 the Phillies opened their season to 14,000 fans in their stadium. They finished 8th in their league. A seat in the grandstand set you back $1.10. To buy a box seat to the World Series, had the Phillies gone, would have cost about $7.00.
The image you see is exactly what we use to produce your bespoke sticker. All stickers are custom made. (We include 1 free GypsyFaith sticker per order.)
All GypsyFaith die-cut vinyl stickers are printed on glossy, premium, extra thick vinyl. We then seal the image in clear laminate so that it will be particularly resistant to fading or tearing. We will only sell the absolute top end of any particular product on our site. Our intention, as we developed this product, was to make it as durable and valuable as our magnet products.
Images used to make our stickers are scanned at 9600dpi resolution, reduced to 960dpi for production.
SIZE: This sticker is exactly 1.835 x 2.362 inches OR 4.66 x 5.999 cm (It is about the size of the original matchcover.)
It ships in a photo-type mailer to prevent bending.
*We require a minimum purchase of $10 for sticker orders.
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.
