Diamond Crate By Sports Crate - Info Sheet

Here is the info sheet for this crate.

Team Gloves

These heathered knit gloves may not be the most stylish pair out there, but they are warm! I like the Diamondbacks logo that is front and center on the top of the glove, but I wish these had textured fingertips so I could text while wearing them.

Team Scarf

This is another one of those warm but not very stylish items. This knit scarf features a winter sweater pattern coupled with the D for Dbacks as well as “Dbacks” written in the middle. I would wear this for warmth, but probably not when I was trying to look cute.

Playing Cards

These are your basic playing cards with the design of the box similar to what a ticket to Chase Field looks like. The cards have your standard suites on one side and the other features a red background with the "D" snake logo. The cards aren’t especially thick or sturdy, but they will do just fine for a game of Go Fish.

Team Lanyard

I wore a lanyard every day throughout high school and most of college, but I don't use them that often anymore. It is big enough to throw over your head but it also has a buckle snap closure as well as a detachable keychain at the other end.

The Verdict: This wasn’t my favorite crate from Sports Crate- I wish a shirt had been included and the designs of the scarf and gloves a bit less garish. All of the items were exclusively from Sports Crate this month. Because of this, I couldn’t accurately estimate the values for anything, though you do usually pay a pretty penny for officially licensed team-branded items. Getting four items for $29.99 is a good deal, but you need to be aware of the wait associated with subscribing. 

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? I am not positive but I think they are still shipping the Gear Up crates!

Value Breakdown: This box costs $29.99 + free shipping, which means that each of the 4 items in the box has an average cost of $7.50.

I am a staunch believer that pineapple doesn’t belong on pizza and when I’m not working as a family law attorney I enjoy hiking the Louisiana trails (alligator sightings are a favorite!) or relaxing with Duchess, my cat. I’m a sucker for anything labeled a mystery box and I’ve never met a bath bomb I didn’t like.
