Mets, MLB partner with Loot Crate to launch Sports Crate subscription box

By JT. Teran

As a diehard Mets fan, I tend to have more than my fair share of team swag, and with the launch of the new Sports Crate, my collection is probably going to get bigger.

Loot Crate has announced a new subscription box that is aimed directly at baseball fans around the country. Sports Crate, as they’re calling it, is the first officially licensed subscription service that will bring authentic Major League Baseball products to its fans.

Sports Crate is starting off its launch by supporting 10 MLB teams, and of course, the Mets are one of them. What’s in each box? According to the company, it’s going to be a mix of “exclusive apparel, collectibles, experiences and more.” The CEO of Loot Crate, Chris Davis, describes Sports Crate as “a care package from your favorite team every month.”

The first Sports Crate of the year, appropriately called “Bringing the Heat,” will include a freakin’ action figure of each team’s Opening Day starting pitcher. Yes, that’s right, that means for us fans of the Amazin’s, we get to see a Thor collectible. They actually made him look like a badass, too.

This isn’t the action figure that will be a part of the subscription either. This again makes me wish Bartolo was still here, I’d bet his collectible would be incredibly popular, specially with my Rising Apple co-Editor, Michelle.

If you want Sports Crate in your life, it’s already available, with the subscription starting at $39.99/month. According to the company, quantities will be limited, and it is a first come, first serve basis, so if you’re looking to get some exclusive Mets stuff, you’d better get on it sooner rather than later.
