Rosenblatt Keepsakes
It’s quite apparent that capitalism and remembering Rosenblatt Stadium go hand in hand around the ballpak these days. If it weren’t for such a worthwhile cause (the memories, not the profit) I wouldn’t bother mentioning it, but really these are must have items for me and for all fans of Rosenblatt:

Websites

Two free online community sites, www.rememberrosenblatt.com and www.rosenblattmemories.com, were recently launched for people wishing to share their memories, photos and videos of Rosenblatt Stadium.

T-Shirts

There is virtually no limit to the number of businesses putting their own stamp on t-shirts commemorating the Blatt’s final year. Honorable mention goes to The Dugout and Stadium View Sports, two local retailers that created hybrid shirts that pay tribute to the stadium and serve as calling cards for their business.  My personal favorite is the simple white t-shirt I saw hanging outside a small shop at 17th & Vinton that reads “Tell me again what’s wrong with Rosenblattin black text, adorned by a silhouette of the Blatt.

I will keep adding items as they become known to me.
