Kirk Gibson Green Series

Post by dunedin » Thu Aug 10, 2017 7:25 pm

Calling all lovers of vinyl records! Purchase this package and get a ticket to see the Tigers battle the Minnesota Twins on September 24 plus an exclusive Third Man Records 7" vinyl record.

One side of the record is the song "Strike Out" by "The Brushoffs" - a group featuring Third Man Records artists Brendan Benson, Ben Blackwell, Dominic Davis and Olivia Jean. On the other side, Third Man Records founder Jack White interviews 1984 World Series Champion Kirk Gibson. This record is pressed in the Tigers colors (blue and orange) specifically for this ticket package and will not be available anywhere else. The photos on the record sleeve were shot by Detroit Tigers pitcher, Daniel Norris.

A portion of the proceeds benefit the Kirk Gibson Foundation and The Detroit Tigers Foundation.

Very cool idea, terrific promotion that brings together a lot of elements of TMR, Detroit, charity, and baseball. My fingers are crossed for a black vinyl release because it's a Green Series and it's been waaaaaay too long since we've gotten a new one of those. Would really love to hear that interview.
"And the message is clear: if we want Jack White as our hero, he will entertain, but not pander. We have to accept all his flaws, whims, caprices and manias as a critical, sometimes uncomfortable, part of the contract."

Purchased a ticket this morn! Good news is you can still get the vinyl even when buying the cheap seats at $28 a piece ($36 or so after tax and such). I might not even be able to attend the game but couldn't pass this one up. Detroit born and raised and huge Tigs fan!

How fun.
Not much of a baseball guy, but the interview could be interesting and the music sample I heard is great.
I'll probably get it on standard black.

Where did you hear the music sample? I'm curious about that tune, with that lineup.

I'll be going to the game. If anybody needs one and wants to work something out shoot me a PM. I'm coming in from Toronto so a little help with expenses would go a long way.

They will not ship the record. You have to go to the game and pick it up. The whole point of
The promotion is to get more people to go to the baseball game.
