2017 Cactus League Pocket Schedule
Sent for the 2017 Cactus League Pocket Schedule.
I collect those because, of course, the Angels play in the Cactus League.
I’ve sent a SASE every Spring Training for the last 7 years.
Always exciting to get that SASE in the mail to see the new design logo for the Cactus League.

This years design is kinda boring.

Plain vanilla.
I mean it’s nice and all, but doesn’t compare to logos of the past.
You’ll see what I mean in a minute.
For starters, you have to look hard to see the cactus, namesake of the league, there atop the AZ.
There’s another ghosted image somewhere in the vanilla background.
See if you can spot it.

Now compare the 2017 to those from past seasons.
Wow, some really nice designs, I can clearly see cacti in most of them.
And just look at all those Arizona-type colors.
Vanilla melts in Arizona.
Vanilla is not an Arizona color.

 You can see that I have a continuous run of Cactus League pocket schedules since 2010, one from 2006, and I think I also have a 2003, so I need fillers for all those missing years.

Any other Cactus League Pocket Schedule collectors out there?

Tennessee 2015 Football Schedule

I like pocket schedules of local teams, either professional or collegiate. Living in the Knoxville area I have the opportunity to obtain both.  Nothing spectacular about this one.  Dates and opponents  Rather bland photo of Neyland Stad…

Don’t Look, It’s Just More Pocket Schedules

Made a bigger trade on Skednet for more schedules that I needed.These large schedule cards could often be found in local hotels in those brochure racks of local attractions.That’s where I picked most of mine up in the early 90’s.A bunch more Angels Min…

UT Basketball Pocket Schedules

A few weeks ago a friend of mine invited me to a UT Vols basketball game.  The men’s team has been up and down.  Seems like they start each game rather well and then can’t finish.  I enjoy watching them but don’t know enough about the ga…

Indians vs. Yankees – July 9, 2014

A few weeks ago I took a trip north to Ohio to catch two MLB games. The first stop was in Cleveland. We arrived with a few hours to spare and since some of the guys had never been to Cleveland we walked towards the lake and found ourselves at the Roc…

Team Pocket Schedules

Clearly the jury is still out on whether or not I am a hoarder. I take things, buy things, collect things that are completely useless for the most part. The pocket schedules are just another one of these useless things that I feel the need to have.Th…
