New urns give baseball fans everlasting hope
NEW YORK |
NEW YORK (Reuters) - Chicago Cubs fans have been waiting for their team to win a World Series for almost 100 years, and even if this is not finally their year, die-hard fans will soon be able to show their support in the next life.
In September, casket and urn maker Eternal Image will start offering caskets emblazoned the names of eight Major League baseball teams -- including the Cubbies, the New York Yankees and the Philadelphia Phillies.
Urns, which sit on a home plate-shaped base, topped with space to display an actual baseball, are available now.
When the company announced the team urn product last summer, they had to start a waiting list, according to a statement.
For those dearly departed with other passions, the company offers urns and caskets with other trademarks. Pet lovers can choose an urn marked with the insignia of the American Kennel Club, while the Vatican Library Collection urn is a twisting, moss-green column topped with a cross.
