It should be a happy holiday season for sports memorabilia shops in and around the city of the World Series champs.
It’s been a couple of weeks since the Philadelphia Phillies polished off the Tampa Bay Rays and won the city’s first title since the 1980s. But the championship momentum is still rolling.
With the holiday shopping season on the way and fans still eager to snap up autographed photos, signed baseballs and just about anything else that has to do with the 2008 champs, business is brisk.
When you win a title, though, it’s not just a one year boost for cities who love their sports stuff. The Press of Atlantic City spoke to shop owners and customers who say they’ll get a thrill out of the moment for a long time.
