1. This is not our traditional post, but we love this idea as it incorporates not just a team, but a commemorative element directly into the sponsor's product (one made in Kansas City).

Getting one of your partners to create a special edition product for your team is probably not realistic with every property, but get creative on ways to capitalize on significant achievements that your fan base will want to commemorate (bonus points for a product or partner based in your city!). It does not have to be something this large or expensive to be effective.
