Baseball Reference/Baseball Cube Sponsorship Thread

Postby NCCubFan » Sun Mar 22, 2009 8:05 am

As I was renewing a couple of sponsorships last night I thought that, since several NSBB members sponsor pages on these sites, it might be worth a sticky thread to post links to them for other NSBB members to see. I mainly intend this for Cubs sponsorships, but feel free to post sponsorships of non-Cubs that you think might be of interest. I have two:

1959 Cubs Team Page (Baseball Reference)
Carlos Marmol Player Page (Baseball Cube)

I know I don't sponsor any, but I remember seeing that Vance has a few. Off the top of my head:

Mike Fontenot
Ryan Theriot

And of course..

Kent Mercker

We need to get our hands on the 2009 Cubs page, in case they finally get it done this year.

I remember being annoyed that nobody here had the 08 page.

It varies. I think my Kessinger was like $15 and the Eddie Grant one I did was $5. For some of the big dogs like a Ruth or A-Rod or something it is up in the hundreds. I'm kicking myself a bit because Billy Williams was open a few months ago and was only like $30 or so, which is pretty damn cheap for a Hall of Famer's page.

yeah anything up above $200 used to be reserved for really great players and hall of famers like cobb or something.

They base the price on traffic, so if a player's page gets a lot of hits, the price will go up. My guess is that we made Dunn's page rise a whole bunch over the past year.

Funny you mention Cobb because I just noticed what his sponsorship says on baseball cube:

The greatest hitter ever!, no contest. I once had a dream he was trying to kill me.... I woke up and his bobblehead was bobbling.... still scary.

What does sponsoring the page do? Is it like an advertisement? Do you make money off it?

I believe it's just a donation to the site that allows them to keep working the magic that they do.

You do get to put your name, and a link to a website, on the page you're sponsoring.
