More than a Label

The "Officially Licensed Collegiate Products" label not only signifies that the merchandise has passed the standards set forth by Baylor University, it also signifies that a portion of the purchase is returned to the University. At Baylor, revenues generated from the sale of licensed products help to provide for Baylor Athletics, making the "Officially Licensed Collegiate Products" label truly more than just a label.
