2004 Red Sox Menorah

Earlier today, I received an email from mlb.com informing me that their holiday gift guide was now available. It’s actually organized pretty well — you can shop by price or by team or you can check out the Stocking Stuffer and Gifts for Her sections. As you might expect, there are World Series items in the Red Sox category, including an ornament. Sadly, there’s nothing Chanukah-oriented. This is a tad disappointing, especially since the 2004 Red Sox had two Jewish players, Gabe Kapler and Kevin Youkilis, and a Jewish General Manager, Theo Epstein.

I’ve come up with a solution to this shortcoming. I don’t have the ability to make these, but if anybody follows-through with this, I’d really like one.

Without further ado, I give you the 2004 Red Sox World Series Commemorative Menorah.

This once-in-a-lifetime collectible features the starting lineup from Game 4 of the World Series — remember, it was played in St. Louis, so there was no DH — as the nine arms of the candelabra. Each player has their right arm raised victoriously above their head, where the Chanukah candles are inserted into the players’ Jack Daniel’s shot glasses.

Remember, this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, so act fast!
