The Phillies, Brewers and Tigers are among the big league teams giving fans a chance to buy game-used items for their collections or do some holiday shopping this weekend.
The Phillies are offering "thousands" of items for sale this Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 3 and 4 although it's not certain how many of those are high-end type collectors items. The team does indicate that game-used helmets, bats, caps, shoes and jerseys from current and former players will be sold along with player locker name plates and autographed items.
The sale is part of the team's annual Holiday Sale and Food Drive at Citizen's Bank Ballpark. The event includes a variety of other family-oriented activities and book signings.
