2005 World Series Memorabilia

Recommended Posts

I recently sent in an item for a private signing for Aaron Rowand, and it got me thinking, what are some of your favorite pieces of memorabilia that you have from the 2005 World Series team?

Here is mine. Got this back in 2016 at a signing at Jewel.

I have a framed picture of the team celebrating on the mound in Houston and I spent 2 years going to card shows and autograph signings to get everyone to sign it. I even have Reisdorf and Gene Honda on there. The only autograph I do not have is John Rooney, and he's said he will sign it if I come to St. Louis, just haven't had the foresight to do it yet.

I have the NYTs sports section story clipped, that's all I have.  Not a huge memorabilia guy.  The best memory for me will always be leaving the bar in disgust only to listen to El Duque get those magical outs in the division series.  For some reason that was the moment that I thought maybe they could win it all, and sure as shit they went on to do it.

Remember seeing a 05 World Series ring for sale on eBay a long time ago. Think it sold for like 20k and I always wish I could have bought it.

I have the official hat and DVDs but my favorite World Series memorabilia is my Monopoly World Series White Sox edition. Konerko is Boardwalk and Buehrle is Park Place.

Is this thing still available to purchase anywhere?

I have picked up some good pieces over the  years.  I eventually got the giveaways for the trophy and ring replicas.  I got a 1 of 500 engraved bat as a Christmas present in 2005.  I also picked up an official 2005 World Series ball, and have some player autographs on World Series balls.

I don't know if this counts as memorabilia, but I breakout this jacket every opening day.

I have a framed photo of the mound shot when they won, with AJ and Jenks and the first rush of guys. I have a pennant somewhere. I have a very worn 2005 Championship t-shirt. I have just a single DVD recap, or maybe it's two discs. 

But my biggest piece of memorabilia is the 7-page single space typed personal recap of the entire year that I did at the end, mostly off memory. 

One part of that I come back to often is when Soxtalk went on a Sox Haiku kick somewhere in the early-to-middle of the season and I wrote about a dozen or more Sox Haikus, some of which I can still remember.  What's amazing about these is they were written during the season, yet were very World Series focused, when we hadn't won a playoff series since 1917!!  This is the one I always remember: 

Great Ozzie Man Say
Pitching and Defense Is Way
To World Series Play!

I actually saved a document listing them!!  Here they are:

Ya gotta believe
In this torrid White Sox team
To go all the way!

Lee for Podsednik?
Add AJ and El Duque
Play Ozzie ball. Win!

Little Boat afloat
Sailing on to yonder shore
Where White Sox are Champs

Kenny man, he say
Power ball is not the way
Go-go Sox are best

Garland, Buehrle pitch
Fifteen and one and counting
Sox duo kick a$$!

Big Frank coming back
Adds thunder to Sox attack
Best team gets better

Nineteen seventeen?
White Sox fans can't wait to see
Champs at Comiskey

Thirty-fifth and Shields
U.S. Cellular team fields
Baseball's supreme team

U.S. Cellular,
Not Wrigley Field, is home to
Chicago's best team

McCarthy's the man
Filling in for El Duque
To mow the Cubs down

Brandon McCarthy
Six-seven pitching demon
Will keep Sox humming

All the way this year
Eighty-eight year jinx over
White Sox are World Champs

Bosox won last year
Now it's time for the ChiSox
To wear Series crown

Podsednik leads off
Turning speed into Sox runs
Sparkplug of the team

Iguchi bats next
Veteran Japanese star
Plays like Zen master

Batting Rowand third
Jump starts young center fielder
To twelve game hit streak

Konerko cleans up
Leads Sox in walks and home runs
Starting to get hot

Pierzynski hits fifth
Lefty catcher has quick bat
Veteran leader

I got mine new on eBay years back. A quick search shows there are Used and New ones available there from 24.99 used.

A few weeks after the series, Bobby Jenks and Neal Cotts made a joint appearance (I forget the place) to help introduce a video called "Sox Pride" which was a retrospective of the championship. I think Comcast put it out. Anyway, I still have two of the DVD's, one opened and one still in the shrink wrap.

Gotta be this for me. Took roughly 4 1/2 years to complete. The vast majority were acquired in-person, with a few purchased from a dealer I trust.

Kind of tough because of the glass, but if you want to see a specific guy just let me know and I’ll post a close up.

Did you inset the frame into the wall?

No, didn’t want to make it too permanent - just bolted into the wall. Maybe down the road I’ll do something like that.

Huh, cool - the angle of the photo makes the frame look like it’s too thin to hold the full depth of a ball and hence had to have been inlaid into the wall.

Awesome piece, congrats!

Thanks! I took it on an angle because I was getting a lot of glare.

I was never a big fan of that jacket. My wife and I both got this one instead. My oldest daughter still wears it every day.

I also have this thing sitting on my desk at work. I use it as a pen holder.
