For all of you sports memorabilia crazed fans out there, it looks like the Royals are one of 10 Major League teams that will be a part of the Sports Crate program. It is a monthly subscription service which focuses on sending products of one team, and specialized "experiences" as part of a monthly fee.
First up? It looks like this wonderful action figure of Danny Duffy as part of their "Bringing the Heat" theme.
Looking at the sportscrate.com website, it looks like packages start at $39.99 a month with a season pass payment option as well for $179.99. Each box is listed as having a retail value of at least $80 so for all of you who spend your money buying Royals gear anyway, here is an excellent way to simplify the process and have it shipped directly to your door.
Here is the official Press Release given out by Sportscrate announcing the program:
Loot Crate, the leading fan-commerce and community platform, today announced the launch of Sports Crate and its first line of subscription products exclusively for baseball fans, marking Loot Crate’s first foray into the world of sports fandom. With licenses from Major League Baseball and the Major League Baseball Players Association, Sports Crate is now the Exclusive Licensed Subscription Box of MLB.
The new division of Loot Crate, Sports Crate will launch with 10 teams initially, providing fans of the Boston Red Sox, Chicago Cubs, Detroit Tigers, Kansas City Royals, Los Angeles Dodgers, New York Mets, New York Yankees, San Francisco Giants, St. Louis Cardinals and Texas Rangers with exclusive apparel, collectibles, experiences and more every month. Sports Crate will roll out additional teams later this year.
“Sports Crate and the fans it will serve, is an exciting step for our company as we explore new and exciting ways to celebrate being a fan, no matter what you’re passionate about,” said Chris Davis, CEO of Loot Crate. “Sports Crate is like getting a care package from your favorite team every month, and we are humbled by the opportunity to share in that experience for sports fans worldwide.”
The monthly subscription service will feature exclusive team-focused products and VIP one-of-a-kind experiences. The first Sports Crate will feature a “Bringing the Heat” theme, stocked accordingly with a highly collectible, exclusive action figure of the respective team’s starting pitcher, along with everything a fan needs to “bring it” on Opening Day.
Sports Crates are currently available on a first-come, first-serve basis and will be limited to ensure their collectability. For more information, please visit www.sportscrate.com or MLB.com.
