At Long Last: New RAB Merchandise

Righting the Soriano ship
Still no update on Phil Hughes

Can you believe it’s been three-and-a-half years since the Save The Big Three shirts? Good times, though I don’t even wear mine anymore. The vendor was used wasn’t great and those things shrunk like you wouldn’t believe. It was the thought that counted anyway.

Today I’m happy to (finally) announce that we’re getting back into the merchandise game, though it’s not just t-shirts anymore. Now you can get hoodies, coffee mugs, bumper stickers, all sorts of stuff at the River Ave. Blues Shop. And if you do just want a t-shirt, you can now customize the colors and what not, which is always cool. The prices are reasonable and in the interest of full disclosure, yes we do get a cut of the sales, though not all of it. I wish.

We have the one design above with the street sign logo and what not, plu this numbers design courtesy of Tyler Wilkinson. He also designed our podcast logo, and will be providing us with more in the future. We just launched the shop today, so the selection is limited for the time being.

Update: If you’re having trouble with your shopping cart (as in, it’s empty even though it shouldn’t be), just clear the cache and cookies within your browser and you’ll be good to go.

      What, no “Save the Killer B’s” schwag? LOL.

  • Monteroisdinero

    Only God can have his # retired before he does.

    Everyone knows those hipster shirts that are like

    A Yankee one could be awesome. It might be Core 4 (with Bernie!) or something, or other players, but I waaaaant.

        shirt would be pretty cool. So would that one. ;P

    • bexarama

      Just a design idea, to clarify. What’s already there is awesome. :3

    • T-Dubs

      Didn’t I make this for you already?

  • tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside the Elder

    My first two thoughts:

    A.) This sounds AWESOME.
    B.) That pictured shirt is probably some sort of copyright/intellectual property infringement, even if you did take the smart and necessary steps of not using the Yankee fonts and not including any official logos or insignia.

    Buy ’em now while you can, folks, before the cease-and-desist.

  • tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside the Elder

    Is that a little “x2” mark by the #8? To indicate the double-retiring?

  • Kiersten
    • Ross in Jersey

      I would 100% buy this.

    • Tom Zig


    • Francis

      A shirt with memes such as that would be pure awesomeness.

  • Monteroisdinero

    4 rows of 4.

    After #2 and #13 are retired, 3 rows of 6 or 9 rows of 2.


    BTW, Jackie Robinson’s 42 has no pinstripes (in Monument Park)-but this is a minor issue.

  • Ellis

    Awesome idea. Suggestion for any future products – I’d buy some RAB merchandise if the design were a little simpler. With the logo, the 3 photos, and the quote, it’s a little busy. One that just said R.A.B. in a cool font would be nice. (Just my $.02).

    • Mike HC

      Agreed. More subtle and I would probably be in for one.

        (Street sign only on navy = Win)

    • Frigidevil

      Indeed, less is more

  • SCT

    I click the link and it won’t load, I get a blank page. Outdated browser at work that I’m not authorized to update?

  • Drew

    I’m a zipper hoodie kind of guy. If you guys get those you can have my $40, probably $80 if they come in different colors.

  • Tyler Wilkinson

    There’s a bunch of ideas that were kicked around that all potentially violated several copyrights and/or trademarks. Assuming the designs never make it onto shirts, I’ll throw them on Flickr at some point.

    A lot of them are you various suggestions and requests via Twitter.

  • Boy

    Are these shirts Made in America? Just wondering. Thanks

  • Johnny On The Spot

    How about a “Jesus is Coming” shirt for the next merchandise?

  • Cy Pettitte

    “We Won the Granderson Trade” shirt please

  • Mark

    What’s the chance/cost of overseas delivery?

  • true

    wow you must of worked really hard on that.

  • Mat Uk

    Would be cool if the words where in White if you buy the t-shirt in blue

  • Stevie V

    Wow…That’s all pretty terrible looking in my opinion, and extremely overpriced every item listed. More power to you for making money off whoever you can.

    • Steve S

      Yeah jumped the shark pretty much…

    • Boy

      Cool shirts, but way too steep. I hope RAB sells a bunch. I know, business is business. But if I’m going to shell out that kind of money, it better damn well be Made in America or have some of the proceeds go to charity.
