Fans who understand the art of playing with their food need to be in Reading. The Phillies will sell any fan as many cans of Spam as they need for $5 per can. Plastic knives for carving will be provided, though true Spam-carving enthusiasts often bring tools more commonly used for shaping clay. The winner will receive $100, while all other proceeds collected will go to charity. The last time Reading held this event, a carving of the Phillie Phanatic edged Yosemite Spam and a sculpture of clocks dubbed “Spam-ador Dali” for the top prize. Really!
