Update Card Set Giveaway August 31

August 15, 2019 - International League (IL) - Rochester Red Wings News Release

Collectorfest Monthly presents the 2019 Red Wings Team Update Set giveaway on Saturday, August 31. The first 1,500 fans 18 and older will get an updated Red Wings team set, with the gates opening at 4:30 p.m. for the 6:05 p.m. game against the Syracuse Mets.

Inspired by the classic baseball cards of the 1950's and 60's, this 30-card set includes 24 players who have played for the Wings since our first team set came out in May - along with two 2019 Triple-A All-Star Game new cards of Tomas Telis and Brent Rooker. In addition, eight cards will have a special MLB Debut 2019 badge (see list below).

The giveaway is sponsored by local card collector and promoter Ernie Orlando. His Collectorfest Monthly event in Webster is the only regularly scheduled monthly collectibles show in Western New York.

"I'm excited to be able to combine my love for collecting with the great history of the Rochester Red Wings," said Orlando. His father and grandfather ran Ness' Barber Shop on Park Avenue, and Orlando said he remembers his dad and grandfather telling him which Wings players used to come to their barber shop - especially his favorite player, Roric Harrison, from the memorable season of 1971.

"There are always Red Wings fans at my sports card and collectible shows. The team update set is a great old-fashioned way to help inspire people to collect," Orlando said.
