As if fans needed any more reason to watch the greatest rivalry in sports, Steiner Sports has one more!
Now through Saturday, May 8th at 3:05 PM EST, fans who purchase Steiner Sports Yankees or Red Sox player-specific memorabilia will receive their item free of charge should that particular player hit a home run during the game. It’s that simple.
“To celebrate this weekend’s Yankees-Red Sox Series, we wanted to offer fans this unique opportunity,” says Brandon Steiner, CEO of Steiner Sports. “This adds another level of excitement, for fans of both teams, to a game that would ordinarily be must-watch television anyway.”
Fans can log onto www.SteinerSports.com or call 1-800-909-9162 to purchase their player-specific item. Should that particular player hit a home run on Saturday, the fan will not be charged for their ordered item, and will receive it free of charge (however, standard shipping rates will apply). If that player fails to hit a home run, all orders will be treated as a normal order and will be subject to any impending charges. Fans will be asked to provide a credit card upon purchase, but will only be charged if, and only if, their particular player fails to hit a home run on May 8th.
“It’s really simple,” says Steiner. “For example, purchase a Derek Jeter hand signed baseball from Steiner Sports prior to the game, if Derek hits a home run, you won’t be charged for that baseball. The same would apply for all players on both teams this Saturday.”
Fans are encouraged to place their orders under the following guidelines: Orders must be placed prior to first pitch on Saturday, May 8, 2010 (approximately 3:05 PM EST). All sales are final, even if a particular player doesn’t appear in the game. The standard 30-day return policy does not apply. Game used or Yankee Stadium demolition items do not apply. This promotion cannot be combined with any other offer and is only valid on new orders placed between Thursday, May 6 at 3:00 PM and Saturday May 8 at 3:05 PM. Should multiple players appear on a single piece, all players must hit a home run to qualify.
“This sort of promotion really appeals to all fans, no matter how big of a collector they are,” says Brett Schissler, Director of Sales. “There is a little bit of risk involved, but ultimately, whether a particular player hits a home run or not, fans will walk away with a great Steiner Sports collectible to add to their collection. This is a great opportunity for anyone to get a special Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, or even a birthday gift for free.”
