As demand for Rocket City Trash Pandas merchandise continues to soar, the organization has received word they are the first organization to launch international orders through Shopify, the e-commerce retailer of Minor League Baseball. 
MILB recently instituted a process for international online orders that was first rolled out to the North Alabama organization earlier this week. While that same process will be made available to all teams, the Trash Pandas were given first dibs Monday after already taking orders from the United Kingdom, Austria and Australia within the first 24 hours international online purchases were made available. 
"Obviously, merchandise has been our homerun hitter since we unveiled our team name and logo in 2018," said team owner and CEO Ralph Nelson. "The opportunity now to welcome international orders will only help us expand the Trash Panda name across the globe." 
"We know the Trash Pandas have been taking international orders and we finally have an integration to simplify the process," says Tajma Brown, MILB's E-Commerce Coordinator in an email to the team. "We wanted to push it out to you all first." 
The Trash Pandas have hit 2.5 million dollars in merchandise sales since launching their line in October of 2018. This has been done without the team playing a game or opening its stadium to the general public. 
Attached are pictures of the Trash Pandas more popular items of merchandise for sale. The team currently operates two stores: The Emporium at Bridge Street and The Junkyard at Toyota Field. The Emporium is open Monday-Friday 2p.m.-7p.m., Saturday Noon-7p.m., and Sunday 1p.m.-6p.m. The Junkyard is open Monday-Friday 9a.m.-5p.m. and closed on weekends.
