Man..what a ripoff!!
 
OK..so I'm at Walmart this morning...(don't ask)....

I see a stand with the hard bound SI Steelers commemorative book!!!

I'm thinking...SWEET!!!

So I open it up..and all it is is the same commemorative SI issue I bought for 6 bucks in February...wrapped in a vinyl coated cardboard "hard cover"...

So I'm thinkin..."well..its still sweet..maybe I'll snag one..."

$19.95 !!!

Uh....no thanks...$20...for the same book I bought for 6 bucks 4 days after the game??

Maybe if it was ..I dunno...a REAL NICE hard cover...but it's not...

OK..I'm done...thanks for letting me sound off...

You would think that it would have been different other than the cover lol All they had to do was add some different pictures and toss in more articles or something and MOST of the Steelers fans would have bought it just to have something else to add to collection lol
Alot have bought it anyway, but just seems like they could have done something a little different than wrap up same thing and put a hardbound cover on it lol

No... It's the exact same as the newsstand version that was out a few days after the SB. There is nothing extra that I saw.

Yeah I'm a bit disappointed with it too. I was expecting something actually special.
