We stopped by the Red Bluff Community Center Thursday night where hundreds of fans waited in line for hours to get their picture taken with baseball's most prized possession.

RED BLUFF, Calif. -

Friday is the last day for folks to see the San Francisco Giants' two World Series trophies.

You can see them at Big League Dreams in Redding from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m..     

We stopped by the Red Bluff Community Center Thursday night where hundreds of fans waited in line for hours to get their picture taken with baseball's most prized possession.

Some fans expressed frustration for having to wait so long, but as we found out it's nothing compared to the two women who are snapping all those photos.

Christine Pham and Gina Ceglia have jobs that any baseball fanatic would envy. The San Francisco Giants contract them to take photographs of fans during the regular season, but because the Giants won it all last fall the two are traveling with the team's World Series trophies from 2010 and 2012.  

Pham and Ceglia says they snap about 500 photos during each visit. The trick Pham says is, "Get em through."   

Each trophy visit is about two hours. Gina Ceglia says, "It's all fast pace, so it goes by really fast."

We caught up with North State resident Randy Corzine who said, "This trophy in my hometown means everything to me because right now all the kids get to see it, they don't have to travel for miles and here it is, not one but two trophies."

The sterling silver trophies are 24 inches tall, weight 30 pounds, and are made by Tiffany & Co.

Each fan will end up taking home an image of Giants baseball history, all from the finger tips of Gina Ceglia and Christine Pham. "We always like to see fans really really happy, especially cause this is a one in a lifetime or twice in a lifetime (experience)," said Ceglia.
