I wonder why they are doing the Garage Sale so soon, I remember last year they did these both on back to back days in August...maybe that's just too chaotic of a weekend for them

Notice it is titled YOUTH day to ward off the ebay whores.

Seriousy? Friday garage sale? 

Still going because I need a matte helmet to finish my helmet timeline, but damnit that is stupid.

to tell the difference...

I happen to be one of those people that loves to have players sign stuff... I have a lot in my collection... my man cave/bar at home is loaded with stuff...

But because I happen to be an adult, everyone assumes I'm going to sell...

I've never sold a thing in my life.

Yea I'm the same way..I'm a student so maybe it's not so assumed that I'm selling but still, alot do. In my experience eBay guys make it pretty obvious though. You'll see a line with people holding a football or jersey and then those few guys with a whole bag of shit always trying to get the players to sign as much as they can before some worker steps in lol

I've been to a lot of the garage sales over the years (even the ones that were run by the AA Alumni Club, when Athletics let them use it for a scholarship fundraiser), and I don't think I've ever seen a football helmet for sale. Michigan's policy seems to be to very intentionally not sell game-used or team-issued football helmets.

I don't remember all prices, but random things I do remember: jerseys were 50, autographed baseballs 5, wooden bats 5 or 10, t shirts 1-5, polos 15, cletes 25, footballs 20, old programs and stuff like that 5.

Expect a lot of clothes made for linemen.  If you wear small or multiple X sizes then it's a dreamland of clothing options for you.  If you wear medium or large, you're not getting any merchandise without a fist fight

I actually took that day off (along with about 1/3 of July admittedly), so if my wife will let me steal some time from preparations for the kids birthday party, I might go down there early and get in line. 

The spacing of these two is interesting though - as I recall, I think that the Garage Sale and the Media Day were both in August and on consecutive days last year. I think the Garage sale is an hour longer than last year too.
