One company is now catering to the many sports fans by manufacturing signature caskets with their favorite sports team's logo on the side.

Eternal Image of Illinois, which has a licensing agreement with Major League Baseball, recently has delivered to Greenleaf-Johnson Funeral Home in Rockford, Illinois, a Chicago Cub casket that features the team's logo on the inside as well as the exterior.

Brendan Baggins, co-director of the funeral home, told the Chicago Sun Times that the families in mourning often want their loved ones buried with favorite items, including Chicago Cubs paraphernalia.

Baggins says the family that chose the $3,000 Chicago Cubs casket, bearing serial number 0011, did not hesitate in picking it for their dad, Leland Smith. Nor did they object to the rule that those with Cubs Logos be buried in the cellar.

In leiu of flowers the Smith family has requested ivy for the wooden box.

"What next?", stated a cousin of the family when he walked into the funeral home. "H-O-L-Y C-O-W!!!"
