Sports Crate by Loot Crate Subscription Review + Coupon – July 2017
Sports Crate is the new subscription box from Loot Crate. MLB is the first licensed partner and five crates will be delivered from May to September. Each crate is filled with 5-7 officially licensed and team specific items.
My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)
The Subscription Box: Sports Crate by Loot Crate
The Cost: $39.99 a month + free shipping
The Products: “5-7 officially-licensed, team-specific items every month that you can’t get anywhere else, including gear, collectibles, and a whole lot more.” There are currently 10 MLB teams available for purchase.
Ships to: US
Good to know: There was a big shipping delay in June and notifications came out that we can expect boxes to continue to ship out late throughout the summer. The July box arrived in mid-August.
Rate, review, and follow this subscription on the Sports Crate by Loot Crate profile page.
A tri-fold booklet was also included and listed this month’s theme as “Round Tripper.” All the items in the box were photographed and written up with a description.
Yankee Short Sleeve T-Shirt – Value $15.00?
This is a Sports Crate exclusive Yankee shirt. I like the Yankee logo with the picture of New York State. The back says Bombs Away Crew and there is a SportsCrate logo on the sleeve. The shirt is soft with a bit of stretch and has a basic crew neck.
Didi Gregorius Figure – Value $20.00?
There was a fully posable Baller figurine of Yankee shortstop Didi Gregorius. The figure uses SportsFlex posable technology which includes 21 points of articulation. He comes with a plate that he can stand on in an upright position, a bat to hold and a glove that can be used to replace his hand (hands can click in and out).
Cowhide Bi-Fold Yankee Wallet – Value $10.00?
Ok, I’m just really not sure how to go about reviewing an item that has a warning such as this on the wallet case. If the chemicals used in this product are proven to cause cancer and birth defects why would Sports Crate use this item in their boxes? I’m really disappointed in SportsCrate for sending this item to their customers.
This wallet is 100% cowhide, has slots for cash, credit cards and a zippered slot for change.
Yankees Sun Shade – Value $8.00?
This Yankees sun shade is for putting in your windshield when the car is parked to help block out the sun and to help prevent your car from getting too hot in the summer when outside. These used to be so popular but I have to say I haven’t seen these at all lately where I live. The shade folds up into a handy carrying/storage case.
Topps Trading Card – Value $2.00?
Every month Sports Crate sends a limited edition Topps trading card. This month’s card was of shortstop Didi Gregorius which would look great displayed along with the posable figurine.
Verdict: This was the third Sports Crate by Loot Crate. I really like the t-shirt this month, but I am very disenchanted about the wallet they sent. The value with my estimations comes to $55.00 which is well above the $39.99 cost of the box.
