Thorzul Will Rule blog ask collectors to show their cups, and I am happy to oblige. Most of these are used in some fashion in my home. Some hold months worth of silver coins, while others are still used daily as they were intended. When I sat down and started to collect individual samples on my desk I couldn't believe how many I had. I was a little surprised. I need to learn how to throw stuff away. Click on any of the pics to enlarge.
Here is a cup from the recent Coliseum exhibition game against the Red Sox.
This is a really old cup. It is from the 1988 World Series. I wish I could say I was there. Unfortunately, I was not. I got this cup from a large lot of Dodger stuff I purchased on eBay.
This cup comes from across the country. This is a 2004 Spring Training cup from Dodgertown, Holman Stadium. It celebrates Eric Gagne's Cy Young season.
Here is a 2005 Spring Training cup with the home schedule.
These next two cups are the cream of the crop. Not because it commemorates a special event, but because it instead incorporates one of my favorite technologies. These cups use old-school style 3D wizardry- much like the old Sportsflics cards. If you move the cup slightly the characters change or move.
Here are some other random cups from over the years. I have no idea when I got any of these.
As you can tell, this cup has found another more important use. It holds the change I use for my morning coffee.
