I’ll be the first to admit that I take a hard stance at my favorite Sports Talk radio station, but with that comes the responsibility to tell you when they’ve done something awesome.
I got a chance last night to check out the All-Star Guide 810 WHB put out and it is really good. It’s a very high quality souvenier-grade magazine packed with articles written by WHB personalities.
Oh, and it’s totally free.
The Official All-Star Program is going for $25 at Kauffman Stadium and will contain just as many ads and likely be of the same grade. 810’s is free and they printed about 30,000 of them.
The cover art was painted by local “performance” artist John Bukaty (related to Nate). I got to see him “perform” at the Challenger Fashion Show this winter and he’s also painted at Allen Fieldhouse, Super Bowls and other high-profile events.
If you get a chance, make sure to pick up a copy. It’ll go nicely in your souvenir collection from this weekend’s festivities.
You can find the locations they are at (I saw Barnes & Noble and the Negro Leagues Museum) here.
