John and Cait’s 2013 Clubhouse Sale Preview

This is one of our favorite blog posts of the year.  The Clubhouse Sale seems to grow every year and seems to get better every year.  There are always some gems and we dig deep to find them for you.

The sale is open to the public Friday and Saturday from 8 a.m. – 7 p.m. and features some amazing deals. Read on for our favorite finds and details about the event!

CAIT

The first thing that caught my attention when I walked in and headed toward the ladies’ section were these separates from Major League Fitness:

ML Fitness Jacket

ML Fitness Pants

You can buy each individually, or get the set! The jacket was originally $65 and is now selling for $35, while the pants were $50 marked down to $25.

Next, I noticed this striped hoodie top from Cutter & Buck. Last year, I purchased one of the Cutter & Buck sweatshirt dresses from the Sale and I absolutely LOVE it. It’s probably one of my favorite articles of clothing that I own and I wear it almost once a week.  Thus, when I saw this long-sleeved top with a hoodie attached and felt the soft fabric, I knew I’d have to get this one, too:

CB Hoodie Tee

The top was $90, now selling for $40. I can already tell it’s going to become another of my favorites!

In the last month, not one, but THREE of my friends have had babies. Thus, I was drawn to the infants, toddlers and kids area, where there are plenty of fun choices.

I couldn’t resist stocking up on these adorable Brewers sleepers, that are just $10 each, marked down from $20:

Sleeper

I also noticed a selection of maternity tops available for just $10 each (originally $35). One reads “Official Fan Supplier” and the other says “Mom’s Future MVP.” Too bad these weren’t available at the Sale last year, or I would have stocked up for my friends!

SAAG Maternity 1

SAAG Maternity 2

Other items to note include the Racing Sausage Tees, which are marked down for $35 to $15:

Sausage Tees

And the Majestic  Thermabase Tech Fleece pullovers, which are selling for $40:

THERMABASE

While you’re shopping for merchandise, you can also pick up other Brewers-themed gifts for the fans on your list, including the 2014 Brewers Kids Club Kit and Brewers Holiday 4-Packs, as members of our Ticket Sales team will be on hand at the event.

If you know me, you know that I am a uniform nerd.  I love special uniforms, old uniforms, all types of uniforms.  I have always highlighted these popular items for our previous previews, but this year it seemed like the selection is a lot better.  There were a number of jerseys that I have never been on sale at a clubhouse sale before, like a number of 1969 Seattle Pilots jerseys and some throwback Braves jerseys that I had never seen.

In addition, they had a number of game used jerseys from Brewers players like Craig Counsell, Nyjer Morgan, Aramis Ramirez and others.  Game worn and authentic uniforms are always some of the first items to go and quantities are limited on these one of a kind items.

Prices of the jerseys range from $50-$500.  One photo couldn’t do the selection justice, so I made a little slideshow:

Also in the Brewers Authentics section were game-used baseballs from $10, game-used bats from $50 and game-worn hats from $25.  The Authentics section is always one of the most popular spots at the Clubhouse Sale and items are extremely limited, so I recommend getting there as early as possible to get the best selection on these items.

Game worn hats.

I mentioned the availability of the “Design a Uniform” jersey from 2013, but there were also plenty of hats available in a variety of sizes. These were priced at $20.

Probably my favorite Brewers cap.

Probably my favorite Brewers cap.

Sure it has a date on it, but you can wear this unique Spring Training shirt in Phoenix and Milwaukee for many years! Plus, in 15 years, it will be a collectors item!  Remember, everything old becomes new again! Priced at $15.

Soon to be retro Spring Training t-shirt.

I always collected baseball cards as a kid and these 2013 Topps team sets would make a great stocking stuffer.

Every Clubhouse Sale there appears some items that I have never seen before.  This Retro “tie-dye” style t-shirt is this year’s “never been seen item.”  Made by “Gear for Sports,” it is only $15.

Plenty of hats for sale as well.  Winter hats, fitted hats, snapback hats, floppy hats, kids hats–you name it.  Priced from $10.

There’s No Offseason For…Caitlin Moyer

Earlier this month, John gave you a glimpse into his offseason life and now it’s my turn to give you one into mine.

First of all, I would argue that the offseason is actually a busier time than during the season in my world.

Yes, that’s right—offseason, schmoffseason!

In my role as Senior Manager of Advertising & Marketing, my job responsibilities include: leading and initiating all general market advertising and marketing projects; serving as the internal lead for social media strategy sessions; initiating brainstorming sessions to discuss concepts for upcoming and current Consumer Marketing projects; evaluating and researching new Club opportunities, promotions and marketing initiatives; preparing proposals, drafting contracts and writing sales, marketing and evaluation reports; and of, course, co-authoring this blog!

Our Consumer Marketing Department, headed up by Vice President of Consumer Marketing, Jim Bathey, is comprised of Ticket Sales (Season Tickets, Group Tickets, Suite Sales, and Ticket Operations) and Marketing/Advertising. Under that umbrella, we have an internal creative team, led by my boss, Kathy Schwab, Senior Director of Marketing, that works to produce all of the advertisements and collateral. In sum, the easiest way to tell you what we do is to say that basically anything that you, the consumer, sees has most likely passed our desks in some way, shape, or form.

While I don’t physically design the look (we’ve got Sr. Graphic Designer Jeff Harding and Graphic Designer Molly Arndt to thank for that!), I have a hand in most projects from a creative concepting and copywriting standpoint to scheduling the workflow and making sure our deadlines are met.

Here are just a few of the things that help keep us out of trouble from November through March:

NOVEMBER

DEPARTMENTAL MEETINGS: Our internal creative team operates like its own creative agency, serving our “clients,” or the other departments within our organization. At the end of the season, we like to sit down with each department individually to discuss their creative needs for the upcoming year so we can begin to think about new ideas, get their projects on a calendar and budget our time accordingly. We meet with everyone from Brewers Enterprises and Community Relations to Accounting and Stadium Operations to make sure that we are ready to help them produce any materials that they might need.

SEASON SEAT HOLDER RENEWAL PACKET: Our first big offseason project is always the Season Seat Holder Renewal Packet. After the season ends, our Season Seat Holders have the first priority to renew their seats for the following season. Putting this packet together means reflecting on the previous season, gathering the new schedule and pricing charts for the upcoming season and updating any new benefit information. Coming off of such a special 2011 Season, we wanted to do something extra special for our Season Seat Holders, so they each received this commemorative 8×10 collage as part of their packet this year:

HOLIDAY 4-PACKS: When the baseball season lasts until nearly Halloween, it’s easy for the rest of the holiday season to sneak up on you. That’s why we have to work ahead in order to be ready to launch our campaign for our ever-popular Holiday 4-Packs. Typically, these packages go on sale about two weeks before Thanksgiving. This year they are available until December 20. Our marketing team works hard to develop a fully-integrated campaign that includes direct mail and print, online, outdoor, radio and TV advertising.

CLUBHOUSE SALE:  We’re also charged with advertising our Brewers Clubhouse Sale, which, coincidentally, takes place this Friday and Saturday in the Visitors’ Clubhouse here at Miller Park.  You’ll definitely want to check back  on Thursday, as John and I are planning on posting our annual Clubhouse Sale Preview!

DECEMBER/JANUARY

NEW SEASON TICKET PACKAGES: After renewals and the holiday season, we shift our focus to selling our new season ticket packages. Again, we create advertising campaigns and sales collateral to support these efforts.

BREWERS ON DECK: In January, we’ve got our annual winter fan fest, Brewers On Deck to look forward to. This year, Brewers On Deck takes place on Sunday, January 29 from 10am to 5pm at the Frontier Airlines Center in downtown Milwaukee. Typically, our department will work on the advertising for this event and our outside agency, 2-Story Creative, steps in to assist with all of the banners, signage and decor for the event itself.

FEBRUARY

SPRING TRAINING & TV COMMERCIALS: Just when the weather in Wisconsin is at its nastiest, I’ve been fortunate enough to be able to hop on a plane to Arizona where we work with the players to gather most of what we’ll need for our 2012 in-season advertising efforts. We try to limit our asks of the players once the season begins so that they can focus their efforts on the field; that means that we capture a lot of images—and shoot our TV commercials (with the help of 2-Story Creative)—before our Spring Training games even begin.

INDIVIDUAL ON-SALE (ARCTIC TAILGATE): We return from sunny Arizona to the Arctic…Tailgate, that is. As you know, the Arctic Tailgate, the date our individual tickets go on sale to the public, usually takes place in February. What does that mean for marketing? We have to produce the advertising around the event and create collateral pieces—the most important being the much-anticipated pocket schedule. Usually by that time of year, we’ll have most of our promotions set in place and then we can print our pocket schedules and get them in the hands, wallets and purses of eagerly-awaiting Brewers fans. For the next six months, that pocket schedule will also inadvertently serve as my day planner. :)

MARCH

YOUR TICKETS, PARKING PASSES, ETC.: If you’re a Season Seat Holder, you know that the day your tickets arrive in the mail is a very special day. [I always think of this scene in the movie Fever Pitch and imagine many of our Brewers fans react the same way.] Well, did you ever think of the people behind those tickets? The ones who design them, print them, and make sure that your precise number of tickets with your exact seat location get delivered to you—along with your parking books and/or NYCE Club membership? All of those items in your packet have to be produced and that’s what we spend a lot of time on in February and March, making sure everyone is set for Opening Day.

Which brings us to… the start of the new season!

Eek! We’ve got a ton to accomplish in just 129 days! I better wrap this up.

Cheers!

John and Cait’s Annual Clubhouse Sale Preview

It’s that time of year again! The Brewers Clubhouse Sale starts tomorrow at 9 a.m. but John and Cait have a sneak preview of all the great deals for you! 

overview of chs.JPG

The sale will take place in the Visiting Clubhouse at Miller Park, which has been transformed into a retail store offering fans savings of up to 75% on Milwaukee Brewers merchandise. 

Like last year, there are plenty of great items up for sale. You are sure to find something for every Brewers fan on your list and the many items available will allow you to get your Holiday shopping off to a solid yet economical start. (Psst! There are t-shirts starting at just $5!)

Jill Aronoff, Tom Jennings and their retail crew really did a great job in pulling everything together for what will be a fun two days for shoppers at Miller Park.

Here are some of the highlights, from John and Cait’s perspectives:

JOHN:

This must be Phil Rozewicz’ favorite week of the year, his office looks dark as members of the Brewers retail team have taken over his clubhouse to turn it into a retail wonderland for Brewers fans. Phil, enjoy your weekend off and we will see you next week! 

photo2.JPGWhen I first walked into the Visiting Clubhouse, one thing immediately caught my eye.  It was a die-cast 1:12 replica Harley-Davidson painted with a Brewers logo.  A neat gift for the Harley enthusiast or the Brewers fan who already has every bobblehead sitting on their desk. At any rate, this gift is a steal at only $20.
photo6.JPGAnyone who knows me knows of my love for all things USA. I always enjoy the American flag caps worn in MLB on Memorial Day, the Fourth of July and Memorial Day. This red hat with the American flag inside of the Brewers “M” logo is a great way to show your love for the Brewers and America.  This hat is another great deal at $20. (Note: Sizes and supplies for this item seemed to be extremely limited!)

photo4.JPGEver since I first visited their store in Philadelphia over 12 years ago, I have always been a fan of Mitchell & Ness. They basically started the retro jersey craze and they continue to be the industry leader in retro apparel. This hooded sweatshirt has a great feel to it and at only $50, it will also give a great feel to your pocketbook.
photo5.JPGAs I was flipping through some of the t-shirts, I came across this shirt. I was completely thrown off guard because I had never seen it in the store before!  Had I seen it, I would have picked it up.  Alas, here it is for only $20.   like the soft feel to the shirt and I love the Milwaukee script across the front (I was a huge proponent of bringing back the “Milwaukee” script uniforms). Banner is another great brand that makes quality gear.
photo8.JPGThe question I get most about the annual Clubhouse Sale is the availability of game-used and game-worn items.  For all you collectors out there, this is your best place to get those items–and buying them from the source guarantees theauthenticity of every item.

The sale has a great supply of game-used bats in all varieties (broken, new, used, pink) in prices ranging from $75 to $425.  A collection of used game balls, player locker name plates, lineup cards and helmets are also available with those items ranging in price from $10 – $150.

photo3.JPGWith the 40th anniversary season last year and the team wearing the special uniform patch, that mean the availability of game-worn uniforms with the 40th anniversary patch are plentiful.  From Corey Hart ($400) to–my personal favorite–the #99 Bat Boy jersey ($50), there are plenty of game-worn jerseys available.  Perhaps the best deal is John Axford’s game-worn rookie jersey priced at $250. 
photo7.JPGAdditionally, I did see a number of the Trevor Hoffman 600th Save commemorative prints for sale.  Some were autographed (and numbered as a limited edition of 51) and some were framed–all were a great deal.

1Hoffman01.jpgFinally, I noticed a large supply of authentic blue “Milwaukee” jerseys with the 40th Anniversary patch.  While these are not game-worn, they are still authentic and priced at only $100–a deep discount on an authentic jersey (and my personal favorite in the Brewers jersey collection.)

CAIT:

The Clubhouse Sale really does have something for everyone, so I decided that this year, I would give you my preview based on the diverse group of Brewers fans on my holiday shopping list.

First, my dad. Dad is a big Brewers fan and avid golfer. I thought he’d look just dapper in this green polo shirt with the interlocking M and B with crossed bats logo. We brought this logo back for our 90s Weekend during our 40th Anniversary this year and you don’t see it too often anymore. In this shirt, Dad will be a trendsetter, for sure. And at $20 ($70 originally), this shirt is a steal.

MB polo.JPG

Next up…mom. Mom might just be a bigger fan than dad and she loves to entertain, so I thought she’d really appreciate this 3-bowl melamine serving set, which is going for just $15. This will be perfect for the Brewers parties she hosts.

My husband…he doesn’t know it yet, but I’m seriously considering investing in a couple of seats from Miller Park. This offseason, we’re working on a few construction projects and one involves removing a few of the seats, so we’re putting them up for sale! They are $75 each or $100 for a pair and I think it would be so cool to have a pair to complement our baseball-themed rec room. Now we can even enjoy the away games from the comfort of our Miller Park seats! They’re a piece of history and also, a total conversation piece. (Note:  Not all seats will have the Miller Park logo on them. Also, you won’t actually be able to take the seat home with you from the sale, but you can reserve one and pick up your authenticated seat(s) next week!

They all love the Brewers almost as much as me, so that’s why I knew they’d all appreciate these stylish Brewers bags/purses! Originally $30 and $50, these Tessuta Woven purses and this Touch by Alyssa Milano bag are all going for just $10 each.

I have a few Brewers history buffs on my list and I think I will get them something to commemorate our 40th Anniversary (I just love that logo!). We’ve got t-shirts for $10 (originally $25) and beer steins for $5 (originally $10).

Finally, if anyone has me on their gift list, here are a couple of neat things I found for the female fan. (Hint, hint, cough cough.) The first is this super-cute Brewers retro tank for just $10 (originally $30) and the second is this uber-soft hooded t-shirt that is selling for only $15.

In addition to these fabulous sale items, shoppers can also purchase a Brewers Kids Club Membership Kit ($25) and of course, if you truly want to give the gift of the season, Holiday 4-Packs are on sale now!

We just want to remind everyone that quantities for all items (especially game-used items) is extremely limited. We don’t know how long each item will last, but we do know that with the great selection of the items and these awesome prices, merchandise will go fast.

The Clubhouse Sale runs this Friday and Saturday, December 3 and 4, from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., in the Visiting Clubhouse at Miller Park.

Clubhouse Sale Gives Fans Chance To Score Savings on Brewers Gear

For the past 28 years, the Brewers have held a “Clubhouse Sale.”  It gives fans an opportunity to handle some Christmas shopping and at the same time, see a part of Miller Park they might not usually see: the Visiting Team Clubhouse.

This Friday and Saturday, from 9 a.m. – 7 p.m., the Visiting Clubhouse at Miller Park will be transformed into a retail store offering fans savings of up to 75% on Milwaukee Brewers merchandise.  Not only will there be great Brewers merchandise available for purchase, but also an opportunity to buy rare, game-used items like jerseys and bats.

This is a unique opportunity to not only get some holiday shopping done, but also a chance to see a part of Miller Park that is normally hidden to the average fan.

In addition, representatives will be available to handle requests for Holiday 4 Packs–another fantastic Holiday gift idea.  Shoppers can access the Clubhouse Sale by entering Miller Park at the Hot Corner entrance near the Brewers Team Store by Majestic and follow the signs to the Visiting Team Clubhouse.  Cash and credit cards will be accepted (no personal checks).    If you can’t make it to the Clubhouse Sale this weekend, please note that the Brewers Store by Majestic is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. –  6 p.m. 

 
Check back here on Thursday afternoon when we post pictures and preview some of the items available at the Clubhouse Sale.  I promise I won’t take any of the good stuff before the doors open on Friday!
