It might not be around much longer, so what better time than now to review the home of the Pawtucket Red Sox: McCoy Stadium!  Of course you can find out all about how much a seat costs (cheap!), food reviews(pretty good!), and what else there is to do in the area (nothing!), from all kinds of other blogs and websites.  But that’s not why you come to Sawx Sigs.  We’re here to talk about autographs!  Where, when and how to get them at this AAA ballpark.

Paw Sox/Sea Dogs End of Season Game Used – 9/5/16

What a day.  Drove about 350 miles, spent a lot of money, and came home with a TON of autographed game used gear!  This was by far our most successful day with game used gear, and we’re still processing all the new stuff we brought in.  It was an early morning start in Pawtucket, where we picked up gear from Brian Johnson, Kyle Martin, Jantzen Witte, Chandler Shepherd, Justin Haley, and Ryan LaMarre.  Ryan was the only first timer, and we’re really hoping he comes back to AAA next year.  After that, Continue reading
