List of MLB Licensees - Major League Baseball Licensees

Greeting folks!

This note is written by Scott Sillcox in early 2018 in response to a lot of readers asking me two questions:

A. You wrote and posted many of your blog postings several years ago, is the info still relevant today? Short answer - absolutely! The basics of sports licensing change very little over the years, so I strongly suggest that if you are trying to learn about sports licensing, read away! I have also tried to update certain areas where there have been significant changes, so I feel comfortable in telling you that this information is still highly relevant.

B. You mention that you are a consultant and might be able to help m, do you still do consulting? Short answer - absolutely. I work in the licensing field virtually every day of my life, so if you have questions or would like my help, contact me!

Many thanks and happy reading -
Scott Sillcox

================

It's a simple enough question - where can I find a list of MLB licensees? Yet I can't believe the number of people I hear from directly as well as the number who post online requests asking this same question - where can I find a list of MLB licensees?


I'm pleased to tell you the answer is at hand!

In early 2012 we launched a brand new, searchable Online Directory of 1500+ North American Licensed Sports Products Companies - it’s called LicensedSports.net and it can be found at that same address and costs just $59 to use for three months. This is a highly searchable directory of licensed sports products companies in North America, companies that have been licensed by various sports leagues (NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL, NCAA, MLS, Nascar, the various players' associations and others). There is nothing on the internet that comes close to this resource. And I update the database weekly, sometimes daily. So please take advantage of this resource and "Search Away". If you're not sure if this database would be worth the investment, check out this 3 minute video that gives you a sense of what to expect.

Two great features of the Online Directory are:

1. The dynamic view of each company’s website – when you look at a company’s record, there is a live screen with their website right there on your screen.

2. We have tried our best to show one or more key contacts at each company, and wherever possible we have included email addresses, phone #’s, fax #’s and even Linkedin url’s.

This is intended to be a reasonably comprehensive and up-to-date listing of licensed sports products companies, but please understand no list is completely comprehensive or entirely accurate – we strive to do our best and over time this list will become even better. And remember, because this is a live, online directory, it will be constantly changing. I will be adding licensees as I learn about them, and deleting those who exit the licensed sports products business as well. If you have any comments or suggestions, please email me at: ssillcox@rogers.com

So while I encourage you to visit the actual website/online directory to get up-to-date (and far more detailed) information, here is a snapshot of MLB licensees as of March 2012.

At some point you might ask yourself, why would Scott Sillcox spend so much time and effort to create this Online Directory of 1500+ licensed sports product companies in North America?

The answer is simple. I have a fair amount of knowledge about the licensed sports products business, knowledge that seems to be in scarce supply, especially on the internet. After spending 15+ years in the licensed sports products business, I accumulated a wealth of knowledge that I am happy to share. This blog and the Online Directory are designed to share that information and are my way of giving back and helping people interested in the world of licensed sports products.

This blog and Online Directory are also my way of letting people know that I am a licensed sports products consultant. I am available to consult with existing and potential licensees and my goal is simple, to help you make money by being a better licensee and/or save money by avoiding licensing pitfalls. If you would like to learn more, please contact me: ssillcox@rogers.com or by cell 416-315-4736. I am here to help and I am a good listener! And if you are someone interested in becoming a sports product licensee and haven't yet read my 12 Part Blog called "An Insider’s Guide to the World of Licensed Sports Products in 12 Parts: Practical Lessons from the Trenches", I encourage you to read it - you can find it in the blog listing to the right of this posting. The introductory blog can be found here.

But most importantly, check out the searchable Online Directory of North American Licensed Sports Products Companies at LicensedSports.net - it only costs $59 to use for three months. And I update the database weekly, sometimes daily.

Thanks and Search Away!
Scott

  1. Thank you - but how does one become a licensed seller for sports teams??

  2. Thanks for your note - if you send me an email [ ssillcox at rogers dot com ], I will try to answer your question directly. Can you answer two questions:
    1. Do you actually want to sell products to team stores, or do you simply want to sell products that are licensed by the teams/leagues?
    2. If your question is the latter, can you also explain what type of products you'd like to sell?
    Thanks -
    Scott
