End of “Big Lehigh, Little Valley?” -and Tailgate Update

A fading Valley...

A fading Valley…

The game-used authentics will be auctioned off during tonight’s IronPigs game.  You’ll get to go on the field for autographs and such as per usual.  The road grays do not feature name plates, which can be good or bad depending on how you view it.  As you know, I’m a fan of the authentics, so I’ll be bidding.  Join the “social media collusion network” to assure that we’re not bidding against each other.. 😉

Speculation is that a new “away” design could bring us back to the “Lehigh Valley” text, rather than the




However, the team seems to be sporting the red bacon jerseys and Sunday powder blues on the road most of the time–not to mention the blue “batting practice” “swinging pig” so perhaps they’ll just do away with gray altogether.

On the other hand, authentics were 20% off during the past home stand, and 35% off (!) during this final home stand, in the Majestic Clubhouse Store.  Does this mean more redesign?  A new manufacturer?  Is Wilson on the way out?

Who knows?  I’ve gotten pretty good at anticipating this stuff–so much so that I don’t put it past them to do stuff just to throw me off.  Stay tuned and we’ll see what they have planned.


  1. Immediately following tomorrow’s game (Sunday) in “Joe’s Corner” of the upper lot.  Look for the flags.  Apple sausages with caramelized onions and honey mustard, Buffalo legs, chips and salsa, root beer and cream soda.  Stop by and say hello.
  2. Immediately following Monday’s game–same place.  Honey-sesame shrimp and others with grills and goodies to share.  Leftovers from Sunday.  As per tradition, we’ll close the place down!

Join us, won’t you?


See you in the parking lot,

  1. The current road grays DID have name plates. I was mistaken–probably thinking of the previous road grays.

    Also more info came to light about the status of ALL jerseys. I’ll report on it soon when the picture is complete.

    • Multiple sources now confirming that Majestic will to the “on-field” (read: Authentic) uniforms for next season. They had the current Wilson authentics 50% off yesterday–alas the only one I needed was sold out. So keep your eyes peeled for more leftovers, and expect perhaps some jersey auctions for the current game-worns. Early next season or perhaps via ebay in the offseason. Unless there’s a “Phase-in” process, the Whites, Saturday Reds, Friday Blacks and Sunday Powder Blues will all need to be changed out from Wilson to Majestic. If there’s a “phase in” then the powder blues will be the next to go….
