Introducing the Baseball Prospectus Merchandise Store
It is my privilege to announce the long-awaited launch of the official Baseball Prospectus merchandise store, an online repository of BP-related products. The initial product launch, in recognition of our hash-tag lunatic fringe, offers shirts in all 30 team colors, in which you can select your choice of #want, #rig, #sparkle, #wet, and #slack to wear across your chest—a telling descriptor of a personal approach to life or your particular team’s current standing.
While the store is currently limited to the aforementioned hash-tag merchandise, the available options will significantly expand over time, as Baseball Prospectus plans to add a multitude of offerings, including site-branded shirts, sweatshirts, hats, and even bobbleheads of your favorite Baseball Prospectus writers. Personally, I can’t wait to get my hands on a Ben Lindbergh bobblehead. It will complete me.
This store would not be have been created without the guidance and execution provided by our merchandising and product adviser Adam Silverman and our partners at District Lines, and it goes without saying that without our readers, none of this would be remotely possible in the first place. This action has been in the works for several months, and it brings me great satisfaction to finally pull back the curtain on this product. For only $18.99, you can now display your #want (or #slack) for the world to see, and this is a reality that should frighten all of us.
