Got these for a friend and he LOVED them. Said they were one of the best gifts he’s ever gotten!
I gave these coasters as gifts and they were great! Only complaint was that the original expected delivery was Jul 9-19th and they arrived Aug 2nd so I missed both birthdays. Billy was quick to respond to my questions when I asked where it was but I would have liked if the seller was more proactive in letting me know there was a delay. Altogether I was happy with my purchase.
Great quality and the person I gave them to as a gift absolutely loved them! They bring back so many great memories and people always ask where I got them.
Loved the coasters! Nice memorabilia of the Sox too
