Sports Cremation Urns - For the Game Lover
By Linda Banks
Today lifelong sports fans can be memorialized in a sports cremation urn. Especially popular is a necklace urn to hold ashes. Other sports team urn choices include scattering urns, small keepsakes, wooden keepsake boxes, and photo urns.
Consider a Mini Memorial Sport Urn
We all have a picture that comes to mind when we hear the words cremation urn. My first urn encounter was an antique-looking brass urn sitting on my friend’s mantel. But today with more people choosing to be cremated, the options and designs of cremation urns has vastly increased.
A necklace urn in the form of a basketball, baseball, football, or soccer ball is a significant way to cherish the memory of a loved one. And a loved one who was a sports fan. Each of these stainless steel pendants holds a small portion of ashes.
Display Sports Urns
Other options for sports fans include a photograph cremation urn. The urn is designed to display a photograph with a separate compartment for cremation ashes. Pictures of the family at a baseball game, along with a ticket stub or autograph are all possibilities to fit in the frame.
Display cremation urns with a glass dome hold a baseball caught at a game, one autographed by a player, or one signed by family and friends.

There are also official Major League Baseball burial caskets available for all teams. The exterior is black with wood veneer and the team emblem and MLB™ Batter emblem. The velvet interior has the team emblem, and the MLB™ emblem, too. The official MLB™ hologram sticker is placed on the bottom of the casket.
Other Sports Urn Options
While traditional metal or ceramic urns are available, our choice of materials and designs is greatly expanded. Interestingly, a golf scattering urn is a popular choice for golf lovers. I’ve heard many stories of people sneaking onto a golf course that was a favorite, and scattering their loved one’s ashes on the 18th hole or at the site of a hole-in-one!
