I hope to buy stock in this company before they start making their product available to NASCAR fans.
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Baseball fanatics won’t have to leave behind their beloved teams when they finally go to that big stadium in the sky. Instead, they’ll soon be able to rest in peace inside a coffin with team colors and insignia.
Major League Baseball has a marketing deal with a company called Eternal Image. It’ll put team logos on caskets and urns. The effort begins next season with the Yankees, Red Sox, Tigers, Phillies, Cubs and Dodgers. It could eventually include all 30 teams.
Each urn will be stamped with a message saying Major League Baseball officially recognizes the deceased as a lifelong fan of that team.
After starting with baseball, Eternal Image hopes to branch out by making similar deals with the NFL, the NHL and NASCAR. MORE
