The Trenton Thunder released some information about their 2016 promotional schedule today. Yankees fans will be looking forward to Luis Severino, Aaron Judge and Greg Bird bobblehead giveaways this season.

I’m not positive, but it looks like the annual baseball card team set giveaway might not be happening this year. Instead, there’s a Hometown Heroes card set giveaway scheduled for June 30th.

There’s a Star Wars Night on May 25th… and that’s really about it for things that might get me to make a special effort to go to a particular Trenton Thunder game this year.

For more information, check out the Trenton Thunder website.

A Hall of Fame autograph… and a Hall of Fame pricetag

If you need new Hall of Famer Mike Piazza‘s autograph, you’ll have an opportunity to get it later this month at MAB Celebrity Services’ “Yankeepalooza” show in Fort Lee. But you’d better have deep pockets.

Piazza’s autograph tickets start at $179, plus an additional $59 fee if you want him to add “HOF 2016” or any other inscription to his signature.

That’s a little bit too steep for me – the rising autograph fees are one of the main reasons I’ve stopped posting about which former and current Mets are scheduled to appear at collectibles shows each month.

Yankee fans may be interested to see that Joe Girardi ($79 and up) and Luis Severino ($65 and up) have recently been added to the show lineup, too.
