Beginning next month, collectors will be introduced to CollectorCrate. If you’re familiar with what Loot Crate is, CollectorCrate should be easy enough to understand. For a monthly fee ranging from $29.99 to $99.99, CollectorCrate will ship you a box full of sports collectibles every month. Items in the box cover a wide range of cards, packs, toys, etc… And the fun thing about it is that you don’t know what you’re going to get. CollectorCrate will allow you to pick your favorite sport. So at least you’ll know that your box will be baseball, football, or basketball themed. There is no word yet whether or not hockey will be thrown into the mix, but I have a feeling if this takes off they plan to. CollectorCrate boxes have the letters “BB”, “FT”, “BK”, and “HK” printed on them. I can only assume the “HK” stands for hockey. As of right now, CollectorCrate plans to start shipping their first round of boxes in mid-October.
I for one find this to be a cool thing, and I hope collectors are drawn to it. Watching people open their Loot Crate boxes is fun, but those aren’t sports related. I can really see this turning into a big thing. CollectorCrate should develop close relationships with Topps, Upper Deck, Panini, and Leaf. Heck, throw in Lil’ Teammates, TeenyMates, and OYO Sportstoys too. One thing you see Loot Crate do is have exclusive merchandise which can only be found inside their boxes. This is something I would like to see CollectorCrate eventually get into. The sky is the limit when it comes to what kind of promotional items CollectorCrate could put together for the National.
Merchandise from the Seattle Pilots is hot. It will always be in high demand because this MLB team was only around for the 1969 season before going bankrupt. Once they declared bankruptcy, a car salesman named Bud Selig swooped in and bought them and moved the team to Milwaukee. Of coarse this all took place after a ton of legal action was over. Today they are known as the Milwaukee Brewers. Elements of the Pilots still exist though. All you need to do is look at the Brewers team colors. Selig originally wanted the Brewers colors to be red and navy, but by the time he fully acquired the team it was too late before Opening Day. That classic blue and gold can be seen on the Brewers uniforms today. Although the shades have changed.
From 1961-1969 Crane’s Potato Chips included a lot of baseball pins within bags of their chips. I guess you could say the Pilots just made the cut. These pins aren’t always in the best condition because they were bouncing around inside potato chip bags. A pin like this recently sold for $13.00.
