Rocket City Trash Pandas Surpass $2M in Merchandise Sales

Rocket City Trash Pandas

A big milestone has been achieved by the Rocket City Trash Pandas (Class AA; Southern League), as they surpassed the $2-million mark in merchandise sales on Friday, December 21. The club accomplished this in just over 13 months. 

The team began selling official licensed merchandise October 27, 2018 following their logo reveal at Dublin Park in Madison and, since then, has sold merchandise in the Trash Pandas Emporium at Bridge Street Town Centre in Huntsville. 

The team’s original store proved too small to handle the crowds, so the Trash Pandas moved into double the space in their current location, at the foot of the bridge June 29. 

Through December 22, the organization sold $2,031,660.25 in licensed Trash Pandas merchandise, including $492,157.14 (24%) in online sales; and, $1,5439,503.11 (76%) at the Bridge Street location. 

“This surpasses even our wildest expectations,” said Trash Pandas President and CEO Ralph Nelson. “We are grateful to our fans throughout North Alabama and the entire Tennessee Valley, as well as those around the world, for support that is simply unprecedented in Minor League Baseball. As I’ve said repeatedly, I do not believe any fan base has ever embraced a new team like ours has. 

“We are truly humbled by this … and it is only the beginning.”
