John and Cait’s 2011 Clubhouse Sale Preview

One of the most popular offseason events for Brewers fans will begin tomorrow at Miller Park.  The 31st Annual Clubhouse Sale will open tomorrow at 8 a.m. in the visiting clubhouse at Miller Park.  It will close at 7 p.m. Friday and again run from 8 a.m. – 7 p.m. on Saturday.

Cait and I were able to sneak in the store today to get a preview of some items and we are happy to share them with you.  First, a couple of notes on the sale…

- The Brewers will also have representatives available to handle requests for Holiday 4-Packs and Brewers 10-Packs.

- On Friday, every 31st customer sale at the Clubhouse Sale receives two FREE Brewers On Deck tickets (one per customer, while supplies last).

- As an extra offer, a more-you-spend-the-more-you-save coupon will be offered.  Coupons of $10/$20/$30 will be offered to the Brewers Team Store by Majestic for those spending $100/$200/$300 at the Clubhouse Sale during the sale.

- Every purchase of $100 or more in the Brewers Team Store by Majestic this weekend will come with two FREE tickets to a 2012 Brewers game, while supplies last (one per customer).

- In addition, children can have their photo taken with Bernie Brewer and the Famous Racing Sausages on Friday from 10 a.m. – noon and with Santa on Saturday from noon – 2 p.m. at the Brewers Team Store by Majestic.  Fans should bring their own cameras and the photos will be free of charge with any purchase.

John’s Picks

It was a very exciting 2011 season and I’m going to start my preview with some items from the Brewers run in the 2011 Postseason.

Brewers Postseason Sweatshirt

Brewers Postseason Sweatshirt

Brewers Postseason Sweatshirt

One of the most popular items of the 2011 postseason was the 2011 Majestic Hooded sweatshirt seen here on manager Ron Roenicke.  The sweatshirt was worn by the players and coaches throughout the Postseason and is on sale for only $40.

Brewers Division Champions T-Shirt

Brewers Division Champions T-Shirt

Brewers Division Champions Locker Room T-Shirt

As seen here modeled by John Axford and myself after the celebration, the Brewers 2011 Division Champions T-Shirt will always be a great memory of a great Brewers season.  This shirt along with a number of other Division Champions shirts are on sale for only $15.  The Locker Room hat is also on sale for $15.  The shirts don’t come with the smell of champagne like ours does in the picture, but if it is that you are looking for…

Authenticated Champagne Celebration Bottles

Authenticated Champagne Celebration Bottles

…you can buy a number of champagne bottles popped when celebrating the 2011 Division Championship from the Brewers Clubhouse.  This would be the ultimate collectors item and are authenticated by Major League Baseball.

A select number of authenticated champagne bottles used in the locker room celebrations at Miller Park are on sale this weekend.

American Flag Hats

American Flag Hats

These American flag hats are a great way to show off your patriotism as well as your support for the Brewers.  These fitted New Era caps are just $15 and are really sharp.

Mitchell and Ness Brewers Jacket

Mitchell and Ness Brewers Jacket

Mitchell and Ness started the retro craze years ago and continues to produce some of the best retro team gear (I think i suggested this in my Clubhouse Sale preview last year, but if you are a fan of their stuff and are in Philadelphia, don’t miss their store, it is great).  The sewn logo and letters show great quality.  This Brewers retro jacket is just $50.

Milwaukee Shirt

Milwaukee Shirt

This “Milwaukee” shirt by Forty Seven (formerly Banner) is soft to the touch and only $20.  The Milwaukee road uniforms remain my favorite and this is a good representation of those uniforms.

NLDS Name Plate

NLDS Name Plate

Clubhouse Name Plates

These always go fast as they are all one-of-a-kind.  Authenticated player name plates right from the Brewers clubhouse are available in various players and from various years.  The entire set of players from the 2011 NLDS was available, but is sure to go very quickly (Authentication tip: The MLB Authenticated items can be tracked by clicking here).  You can even buy Joe Crawford’s name plate!

We love you Joe!

Down in the Valley Book

Down in the Valley Book

If you didn’t pick up a copy of this book when it originally went on sale just over 10 years ago, you really should.  It is a great retrospective on Milwaukee County Stadium written by Gregg Hoffmann.  Great stories and pictures in the book are sure to bring back memories of a special place where many of up saw our first professional baseball game.

Inside Baseball Record

Inside Baseball Record

As many of you know, I am a history nerd and couldn’t resist picking this up because I had never seen it before.  An instructional record with baseball tips from the Milwaukee Brewers produced in 1972, this is a must-have for any collector.  Tips from Ken Sanders, Dave May, Del Crandall and interviews conducted by Johnny Logan, this is surely to be a classic.  Oddly enough, I don’t have a record player at my desk, but you can bet I will dust of the record player at my parent’s house and listen.  At only $1, you can’t miss this.

2011 Media Guide

2011 Media Guide

2011 Brewers Media Guide

This is a shameless self plug for myself and the rest of the Media Relations Department that spent so many hours on this masterpiece, but every Brewers fan needs a copy of this book.  One day you will all want to look back at the 2011 NL Central Division Champions and have this keepsake in your collection.

Cait’s Picks

As I think I may have mentioned here on the blog before, I am a big Black Friday shopper. Last week, my friend Stephanie and I were hitting the stores the night of Thanksgiving and we shopped all through the night and into the better part of the day. When it comes to shopping and deals, we’re no rookies, so it should mean a lot when I tell you that none of the items we snapped up that day don’t even come close to some of the deals you’ll find at the Brewers Clubhouse Sale!

In addition to all of John’s cool finds, here are a couple of other things I wanted to highlight:

Camouflage Cap

Camouflage Cap

Camouflage Cap

There is a wide assortment of caps available from $5-$20.  I picked up this camouflage cap with a blaze orange M for my husband, Brian. Brian not only likes to go hunting each year, but he also works for Sportsman Channel, which is a hunting and fishing cable network based out of New Berlin. This cap marries (ha!) his two passions beautifully.

Women’s Gear

There are lots of really cute tanks, tees, jackets and hoodies for women this year! Working here so many years and also, of course, being a fan myself, I kind of had to restrain myself from purchasing too many items! Here are just a couple of my favorites.

Majestic Women's V-Neck

Majestic Women's V-Neck

Majestic Women’s V-Neck

This white Majestic top has a flattering cut and is very sporty. It’s retailing for just $15 this weekend.

Majestic Women's Track Jacket

This track jacket would go well with the tee; sporty and cute, it is going for just $40.

Victoria's Secret Pink Tee

Victoria's Secret Pink Tee

Victoria’s Secret Pink Strike ‘Em Out Tee

Did you see the new Victoria’s Secret Pink Brewers line this year? Sold in both Victoria’s Secret stores and the Brewers Team Stores, their stuff is so cute and so comfortable! This cute v-neck tee is selling for just $15.

Full-zip Pattern Sweater

Sweaters

Just in time for the cold winter weather headed our way, these warm Brewers sweaters are on sale for just $40! Both men’s and women’s sweaters are zip-cardigan style and the women’s sweater also features a hood. I can just see fans wearing these, gathered around the fire or “hot stove,” talkin’ Brewers this offseason.

Kids and Babies

There are lots of items for kids and babies at the sale this year, too—good thing because three of my friends had new babies this year alone!

Baby Girl Warm Up Suit

Baby Girl Warm Up Suit

Baby T-Shirt

Check out this cute girls’ tee for just $4 and this Majestic pink tracksuit for just $20.

Sausage  Toys

There are also lots of toys and novelties, like these Famous Racing Sausages plush toys, which are selling for $10 each.

As you can see, this year, when it comes to your holiday shopping, you’ll find all of your MVPs [Most Valuable Presents] right here at the Clubhouse Sale. Happy Shopping!

no bernie gnomes? haha..in all seriousness..the brewers do it right and have been for awhile..all it takes is a road trip out east or somewhere else to see what great deals we get here…wish I could go but cant :(

Holy cow… I need one of the champagne bottles… That is awesome.

I can attest to the value of the media guide. Can’t go a season without one, and I wait for it every year. You folks in media relations do an amazing job with what must be a very daunting project.
