Buried with your favorite logo

From Yahoo News: Baseball fanatics will 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.

Let's get the obvious jokes out of the way:

Betcha the Angels will be popular.

Padres, too.

Now can I buy a Pirate coffin and put the team in it? Cuz they've been dead for years now :D Not sports relatd, but I'm pretty sure Dimebag Darryl (from Pantera the one who was murdered on stage in Columbus) was buried in the official KISS Kasket they sell. :wacko:

There is another company, Collegiate Memorials, which has had licensing agreements with over 40 colleges/universities since 2000. They do not sell directly to the consumer, but rather through individual funeral homes near the college location. in 2001, I remember hearing that Nebraska was to top seller with 50 coffins sold that year.

You would be correct in that, Gene confirmed it shortly after. I wonder if these are going to be as "wild" looking or more mellow with just logos and colors or fans and all sorts of images.
