Did you catch last week’s release regarding the 2010 season and ticket sales? You might have noticed a section dedicated to Jumbo Tickets. A’s Jumbo Tickets are game tickets with added-value. Within the barcode of each Plaza Club ticket or Value Deck ticket will be loaded value. These “Jumbo” Tickets can be used throughout the Coliseum for redemption at various concession stands for food and beverages and at merchandise stands for souvenirs. Pretty cool, right? Take a look at the Jumbo Tickets page for more information, including more details on the new Value Deck.
Yet another reason to be an A’s Season Ticket Holder… renewed ticket accounts will receive a Kurt Suzuki backpack! Free! F’real! This backpack is an exclusive item just for A’s Season Ticket Holders. You’ll notice it even says as much on the backpack. See John model the backpack like a pro. The backpack is a unique item in the shape of Kurt’s chest protector. Though please don’t actually use it behind the plate. The backpack will accompany your ticket delivery closer to the start of the season. It’s not too late to renew your ticket plan and receive this limited edition backpack.
You may also be interested to know that the 2010 Season Ticket Holder collectors pin has been created. The pin will be mailed with your printed tickets and backpack. Do you like the pin? We do. We thought it up! If you don’t like the pin… then your obnoxious co-worker did it.

Given that reality, we will continue to do everything we can to make our product as affordable as possible. As our exciting young group of players develops into a contending team, we want to reward fans who make the commitment to be a part of that growth.

That value will be even more meaningful to fans given the attractive schedule in 2010.”
That attractive schedule includes two visits each by the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox, along with a visit from the cross-bay San Francisco Giants. Not too shabby.
