Preview of Fans’ Cardboard Cutouts at White Sox’s Home Opener
Earlier this month baseball fans around the country dropped some money of a cardboard cutout of themselves to be placed throughout their favorite team's park, including on Chicago's southside.
Chicago White Sox fans were given the chance to pay $49 for an approved image of themselves to be placed in some of the seats Guaranteed Rate Field since fans would be unable to physically attends the games. These cardboard cutouts would be used for the first home series of the belated MLB season, according to NBC Chicago. The $49 would go directly to White Sox charities, so it's a win-win scenario.
The "fantastic faces" have been placed throughout the ballpark but won't be thrown out after this weekend's homestand. Instead, Major League Baseball will have each cutout authenticated and sent to purchasers. How cool is that?
Here's a visual of the cutouts that are ready to root-root-root for the home team.
If you or someone you know purchased one of these cutouts you may have just set up the perfect game to play which watching America's favorite pastime. Either you could make some sort bet pertaining to which section your cutout could be placed in or you could make one heck of a risky drinking game. Maybe chug your beer or take a shot every time the cutout makes it on camera? That could be a dangerous game depending on where the cutout is placed.
