My parents are impossible to shop for when it comes to gifts. If there’s something they want, they usually end up getting it well before Christmas or birthdays come around. Introducing them to something new, such as a new TV show or a new game, can be a risk. The easy solution has been to get them gift cards to places they like to eat at, shop at, or services they usually get on their own. It’s something I know they like, and even if they went to a particular restaurant or store recently, I know they’re going to go again, and they’re going to be able to use the gift.
Many of you probably know someone in your life that is equally impossible to shop for. Maybe you’re sitting here in the final week before Christmas wondering what to get them for a gift. And maybe some of those people are Pirates fans. If that’s the case, then we’ve got a solution for you: a Pirates Prospects gift subscription.
If you’re reading this, then I don’t think I need to sell you on the site. You’re probably already a subscriber, or you frequent the site often enough that you stumbled onto this article. Or maybe someone who really likes the site sent you this link, hoping for a gift subscription for Christmas. That said, I am going to go ahead and give the quick pitch.
The 2017 season will be our ninth season covering the Pirates and their minor league teams. We’ve been credentialed throughout the system during those nine years, and we’re the only site that provides regular live coverage of all the Pirates’ minor league affiliates. Because of this coverage, we provide information that can’t be found anywhere else, and more details on the Pirates’ system than any other site. This is all possible due to subscriptions and sales of the annual Prospect Guide.
You can buy a gift subscription on the products page of the site. We also have the 2017 Prospect Guide available for pre-sales, with the book shipping in mid-January. Or, you can buy a gift package and get a subscription and the book at a discounted rate. We will send out a gift card that you can give to your friends and family, and the book will be shipped to them when it is released. Here is an example of the gift card (the actual gift cards are customized):
If you aren’t a subscriber, but you’d like a subscription to the site, share this article with your friends or family and let them know you’d like a Pirates Prospects gift subscription for the holidays. You’ll not only get access to the best coverage of the Pirates’ system, but you will also help us continue to grow and expand on that coverage in 2017.
