Isotopes Merchandise Still Among Best Sellers in the Country


Recommended Posts

Graphic Connection, the official merchandise manufacturer of the Albuquerque Isotopes, is the number one local licensee of official Minor League Baseball merchandise in the country, having sold more goods than any other local retail outlet in the United States that specializes in Minor League Baseball.


Out of more than 150 total licensees throughout the country, 71 of which are based in individual markets, Graphic Connection accounted for 13.9% of all revenue generated by local licensees nationwide. Licensees are entities which are granted permission by Major League Baseball Properties to sell official team merchandise in local markets. This year, with national and local licensees combined, Minor League Baseball is projected to generate more than $41.7 million of retail revenue.


"Graphic Connection is thrilled to represent the Albuquerque Isotopes and Minor League Baseball," said Scott Creagan, President of Graphic Connection. "We have a wonderful opportunity to keep business and revenue local and we are very happy to be number one in sales."


"We are extremely proud to have been associated with Graphic Connection since day one," echoed Isotopes General Manager John Traub. "Quite simply, they have helped put us on the map and I think the fact they are the number one licensee in the country is emblematic of what a wonderful model they represent as a local business in-tune with its community."


Isotopes merchandise has ranked among the top ten in Minor League Baseball since the team's inception in 2003, making it one of the most popular brands in baseball.


"We have been fortunate to have such a great partner in Graphic Connection," said Chrissy Baines, Isotopes Director of Retail Operations. "It's a partnership, however, that is successful because of the tremendous support we receive from Isotopes fans both here in Albuquerque and worldwide."


In addition to the team store, located at Isotopes Park on the corner of University and Avenida Cesar Chavez, fans can pick up ?Topes merchandise at the team's kiosk in Cottonwood Mall through the holidays and on-line at www.albuquerquebaseball.com.
