The Vice President of Community Relations for the Sox, Christine O'Reilly, explains:

For $49, you can upload a photo of your face to Your photo, subject to guidelines, will be put on a cutout that will be placed in a seat at Guaranteed Rate Field when the Sox play their opening three-game series against the Minnesota Twins.

The series is scheduled to begin July 24.

The opportunity is capped at 1,500 cutouts. Fans can later pick up the MLB-authenticated keepsakes or have them shipped. 

O'Reilly says the money raised will go to White Sox Charities, which support hundreds of organizations around the Chicago area.
