$2 Bill Appreciation Day: Contrary to popular belief, the $2 bill is a legitimate form of US currency. From its humble beginnings in 1862 to its untimely demise in 1966, the $2 bill enjoyed a 104-year run as one of America's most unique forms of currency, only to be relegated to the dust-bin of bank notes due to a lack of interest and circulation. But then, like a phoenix from the ashes it made its triumphant return a decade later and has been flying under the radar ever since! Like a phoenix, its authenticity has often been questioned and doubted by some. Alas, the $2 bill (much like the phoenix) is oh so very real. The Jumbo Shrimp are proud to celebrate the Tito Jackson of bank notes as the club pays tribute to the bill that holds the American banking system together. The $2 bill does more than just appear in those birthday cards from your weird Uncle Lew; it also provides old guys everywhere with talking points when they spend them at the drug store and for that, the Jumbo Shrimp say thank you! To celebrate, the Jumbo Shrimp will be handing out this legend of the treasury to the first 500 fans through the gates. Yes, they are paying you $2 to come to the game...
Wednesday, July 3, 7:05 p.m. (Gates open at 5:30 p.m.)
