2017 Dodgers Sports Crate - June Edition - Yasmani Grandal

It's finally here!

After a painstaking delay the second edition of the Dodgers 2017 Sports Crate has arrived. It got here about two to three weeks late. At this point I think it's fair to say that the folks over at #SportsCrate are having some fulfillment issues. That said, I can say that these mystery boxes are growing on me. After initially being a bit disappointed with some of the booty I've come to realize that the thrill of opening up the crates is too enticing. It's like experiencing a Baseball Christmas once a month during the season -- if only they could fix their shipping issues.

As you can see, they delivered the goods in the exact same box as the crate from May. It includes an conspicuous box with a diagram of a ballfield and a scoreboard on the inside.

This months theme is "BehindTheDish, so naturally Dodger catcher Yasmani Grandal is featured on the Sport Crate exclusive Topps Baseball card. See that at the very top. As you might also expect, Yasmani and the catcher position is also found throughout.

Check out the rest of the stuff below.

To the right are two home plate styled bottle openers that also happen to double as drink coasters.

To the left is a large sized flag - like the ones you see hanging on front porches. This item is exactly what I had been hoping to find in one of these crates. From some time now I had been contemplating bidding on one of the various pennant flags flown at ballparks around the country; especially from Wrigley Field. I was worried though, that they might be too big to hang on my wall at work and may end up costing me just short of and arm and a leg. Now, I don't have to worry about that. It hangs prominently in my office -- next to my display shelf of various Baseball memorabilia.

The next item in the crate are a couple of shot glasses. This won't get a lot of use in my home today. If this was 25 years ago I'd already be taking shots with my college friends while playing quarters.

Featured above is a Dodgers Barbecue Mitt. Since I don't currently have a barbecue it will now be my oven mitt.

Lastly, here is a close up look at the Yasmani Grandal action figure.

I actually like this one better than the Kershaw figure from last month.
