Think about it for a minute… who is the most difficult person in your life to buy for? I will bet that it’s your dad and that makes shopping for Father’s Day a bit of a challenge. I want to change all of that.
Not only do I want you to find the perfect – and unique – gift for dear old Dad or Granddad, I also want you and your family to have fun doing it. You can even bring Dad along for the fun and let him pick out his own gift.
This Saturday, June 3rd we are hosting our first annual Sports Day event, a pre-Father’s Day shopping extravaganza, at Vintage Sports Images in North Vancouver. There will be fabulous food from local establishments in the parking lot, a baseball hitting competition and tips from BC's Softball Team Gold Medalist Lauren Taylor in the store (yes, there’s a batting cage in here!), a Great Goalie Giveaway shooting competition (see if you can beat Ken Dryden), a Floorball+ hockey skills clinic from Greg Beaudin and Pavel Barber (in our parking lot), beautiful unique canvases, rare sports prizes and so much more.
We are proud to be donating 10% of the proceeds from sales during this event to the Canadian Mental Health Association (North and West Vancouver).
Gifts for Dad are now 10% off in-store, until Father’s Day… but you don’t have to tell him that. We have NHL images, NFL images, MLB images, NBA images, PGA images – we even have boxing images, signed NHL jerseys and many other sports memorabilia items available for sale.
The Vintage Sports Images gallery is currently showing our full Father’s Day Collection, which includes a range of rare sports memorabilia that will make any sports fan giddy. We offer you (or Dad) the chance to own never-before-seen images of such greats as Jackie Robinson, Cal Ripken Jr., Ted Lindsay, Bart Starr, Jack Nicklaus, Phil Mickelson and Muhammad Ali. These rare prints are available for purchase as a canvas or framed prints, just in time to buy that special father figure in your life a present that will be enjoyed for many years.
We have a ton of cool Leafs stuff – from a signed Dave Keon jersey and game-used pucks turned into bottle openers to small canvasses and wooden signs for under $100! We have a lot of Bobby Orr and Bruins memorabilia – signed jerseys and prints. We have great Habs stuff, including the great Ken Dryden and Guy Lafleur. We have the Red Wings with the great Steve Yzerman and Terry Sawchuck, the Chicago Blackhawks including “The Golden Jet” – Bobby Hull and Tony Esposito. Of course we have Gretzky and Messier and the Oilers. We have a Canucks game-used stick bottle opener and a Bure signed jersey. Check out our Flyers prints of Bobby Clarke and Eric Lindros. We have a Minnesota North Stars image starring the great Gump Worsley – who has his own fanbase!
We have a great goalie collection (Ken Dryden, Gary Smith, Glen Hall, Tony O, Gumper, Parent, Sawchuck…).
We are also featuring the New England Patriots, Green Bay Packers, Chicago Bears, Pittsburg Steelers and San Francisco 49ers.
We have prints of baseball greats Ted Williams and Mickey Mantle. We have memorabilia from the Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees. Is anyone a Jays and Mariners fan? We have prints and memorabilia such as cufflinks, watches, bat bottle openers and classic wooden signs. And we can’t forget about the Cubs, SF Giants, Brooklyn Dodgers, Cardinals, Expos, Tigers, Orioles and Indians – yes we have stuff from them too.
We hope to see you here for the event June 3rd 2017. We’re going to have a blast!
