Disappointing - No World Series merchandise?

There are new World Series Champions and no cut in like always with merchandise for fans?  How disappointing.  Spent my money at Academy so it's QVCs loss.  Congratulations to my Texas Rangers!

The manufacturer would have had to produce items for BOTH teams if it was done in advance of the Series' final. 

 

In other words, they would lose HALF OF THEIR REVENUE.     I'm sure what you are looking for will be available soon.

Merchandise will be at countless retailers, and probably for less money than Q.

It's true that finding World Series Champion merchandise is not difficult, but it sells out fast. QVC does have Super Bowl merchandise every year, so I don't believe that they are concerned about the half that they can't sell. QVC usually has something different than other retailers and it's convenient to buy it from them. It is ridiculous how they fawn over football and completely ignore baseball. All this is said with much respect for your post and opinion.

My takeaway is that some seem to think QVC should be all things to all people with specific interest.

Maybe if a Philadelphia or east coast team had been in it, they would have sold World Series apparel. 😉

I read World Series viewership this year was the least watched ever. Not sure about attendance. Seems it's not as popular as it used to be. Maybe that's why.

Baseball tends to be very, very region specific and city specific,  unlike football, where a team has fans nationwide. 

 

Not sure why, but fans have little interest in the Series if their hometown isn't involved.
