Best Show merch we'd like to see
« on: May 01, 2017, 12:44:39 PM »
What merchandise from the Best Show would you like to buy if it existed? Here are my ideas:

Best Show trading cards-- A set of cards featuring drawings of Newbridge characters as well as Tom, AP Mike, Dudio, Pat. etc. Brief bios and any "statistics" on the back of each card. Collect them all! Or maybe instead of cards, they should be Wacky Packages-style stickers?

The "Rock, Rot & Rule" book-- an actual book that just lists band after band and whether they Rock, Rot or Rule. It would be the ultimate argument settler! Seems like it wouldn't take too much time to put out an actual short paperback book like this, and it would be fun to have around.
Edit: actually I just thought of this, it might be easier to make a Rot, Rock & Rule smartphone app. You open the app, type in any band's name, and Ronald Thomas Clontle tells you whether they Rock, Rot, or Rule.

Newbridge Ratmen baseball hat and/or baseball jersey.

T-shirts/jerseys from some of the teams in the Eastern Part of America Belt-Whipping League

Band t-shirts for Mother 13, the Gas Station Dogs, and other Newbridge bands.

Consolidated Cardboard-branded work shirt.

A travel guide to Newbridge, with maps and infos on all the the businesses, attractions, stores, restaurants in Newbridge, in the style of Lonely Planet/Let's Go travel guides

Campaign buttons for the candidates from the Mayubernartorial election.

I would absolutely snatch up a t-shirt with this design of Gary as Tarkus:

Wasn't this already done as a WFMU marathon premium? I feel like I once got some trading cards of Newbridge callers.

This would be awesome.  I was also thinking of a shirt with "We get it, they don't"

A pull-string talking Gary the Squirrel would be pretty cool.

I love the t-shirt ideas above.  I have the older ones and love them.  I have the Massa's one and love it.  And if I had a Newbridge Ratmen t-shirt or one of the bands - well I'd love that too.

Yes, this was the 2010 marathon premium.

I would love to see Jeff's artwork for the Best Show's return to be made available as prints/posters.

I know there's the pin for the patrons, but the new best show logo as a button would be pretty cool. Also a big yes for t-shirts for the Newbridge bands.

I've been mulling this over, and I think it's all the more brilliant, because what kind of cardboard manufacturer brands its cardboard products? I'd buy a hundred of these.

What about a tote bag with the new Bad Company-style logo on the front?

I'd buy the HECK out of one of those.

Does anyone know if Jeff Owens / Tom are on here frequently?  There are sites where you can design a shirt for a fundraiser - maybe we could set something up for a shirt to be available for purchase with proceeds being split between Jeff / the show / local food bank?

Guess I'm the only one who would like to have a Rock Rot & Rule phone app? Would be fun to break out anytime you're talking about music with anyone. "Let's turn to the ultimate argument settler and see what the expert Ronald Thomas Clontle has to say about this. Look, it says right here that the Eagles rot. That settles it!"
I have a weird sense of humor I guess.
