Toronto Blue Jays Reader Q&A

Question by Noah: How much would a baseball bat signed by the Toronto Blue Jays 2007 team be worth?
I won a bat in a raffle at a baseball game that was signed by the 2007 Toronto Blue Jays team. How much do you think the bat would be worth, and are there any players from the team that made it into the hall of fame? Please help, thanks.


Answer by Texas Longhorns #1
You could sell it on EBAY to some idiot for like $ 40 probably.

Answer by Fungo
About $ 200 Canadian.
The only one on that team under strong consideration for the HOF is Frank Thomas.
Jays finished the season at 83-79.

    cannot understand why the jays today are wearing black?

  2. wdm1219 says:

    Love seeing these retro uniforms again. I never realized they had snow on the ground. I had forgotten they played outdoors til 1989 at Exhibition Stadium. Would have been amusing to see the White Sox wearing their Bermuda Shorts in this weather!!!

  3. juanito1975 says:

    would you happen to have the clip of when the jays won their first AL east championship in ’85?

  4. ErikS1975FreeState says:

    How often do Baseball players have to worry about getting snowballs thrown at them

  5. mikey7619 says:

    One of my fondest memories was my dad taking us to a jays game in 1981 vs the California angels when danny ainge played for the jays

  6. andreasox23 says:

    The dreaded lead off walk…

  7. nick4285 says:

    haha. yeah the old white turf.

  8. kisscactus says:

    Look at that… there’s snow on the field!

  9. endlessmountain says:

    That was a cool stadium. The left field seats were so cheap as there were $2 days and free tickets there came fairly easy with tickets from buying groceries even before the stadium closed

  10. gun4hire says:

    Catchers didn’t know how to catch in 1977

  11. vardiss22 says:

    @Tubewings LOL…true but it was a “tacky” decade in general for pro sports uniforms….the houston astros , the padres, in MLB…the denver nuggets in the NBA…the l.a. kings in the NHL….and the tampa bay bucs in the NFL to name just a few.

  12. bluejayfan50 says:

    @Patros2006 it was canadian

  13. hoopsheavenpa says:

    I don’t know what is more offensive, the White Sox uniforms or the fact Whitey Ford is calling a Blue Jays game in Canada.

  14. jfab64 says:

    To my knowledge, the game is complete. The Jays should put it on DVD. I’d buy it! Both the Jays and White Sox are my two favorite American League teams (the Mets will always remain my number one team, however)!

  15. Patros2006 says:

    I wonder what the temperature was like outside

  16. LastUnicornEver says:

    Doug Ault!! Doug Ault!!

  17. mft1180 says:

    @Tubewings The 1977 White Sox had the best uni’s in baseball!!

  18. Tubewings says:

    Anyone else here think the uniforms that the White Sox wore during that time were tacky?

  19. crlaw75 says:

    Nice to see this!

  20. bluebear1985 says:

    It’s kind of interesting to know that Bill Singer almost didn’t play for the Jays. Before the season started, a trade was voided to send him to the Yankees for a pitching prospect because Singer was on the cover of the Jays first media guide, and they thought that would bring bad publicity. As it was, Singer only went 2-6 in his only season with the Jays, the last of his career.

  21. sailorhikaru85 says:

    Wow, Whitey Ford was the color commentator on the Blue Jays first broadcast…

  22. cutterTML says:

    @RetroBoyWontDie yes that is Chevrier for CBC

  23. QuizGuy66 says:

    Awesome video. Thanks! Seems like that at-bat encapsulated that first difficult Blue Jays season 🙂 Love the unis as well

  24. RetroBoyWontDie says:

    I assume that’s Don Chevrier.

  25. torontodave says:

    I don’t think we’ll have snow tomorrow at the Skydome to welcome the White Sox
