Sports Afield is pleased to announce the launch of a new line of Sports Afield-branded home decor items designed and manufactured by Kansas-based Open Road Brands. The products include tin signs, canvas wall art, faux book box storage containers, and decorative pillows.

“The Sports Afield brand, with its vintage artwork and cover designs from our 126-year history, is an ideal fit for these home decor products, which stress a sense of nostalgia and Americana and a strong connection to America’s sporting heritage,” said Sports Afield Publisher and CEO Ludo Wurfbain. “We are excited about this latest partnership and our rapidly growing line of Sports Afield licensed products.”

The home decor items, ideal for living room, office, den, or trophy room, are the latest product introductions in Sports Afield’s highly successful licensing program. They will be available at retailers nationwide.


“Over the past few years we have expanded our licensing program into a variety of products, including clothing, gun safes, and hunting gear,” Wurfbain said. “While the magazine is the heart and soul of Sports Afield, our expansion of the brand through our licensing program makes us more accessible to our core audience while providing an opportunity to reach an even wider group of outdoor enthusiasts.”

Sports Afield, founded in 1887, is the oldest outdoor magazine in North America and today is America’s premier hunting adventure magazine, with a focus on exciting hunting stories, fine firearms, and the pursuit of big game around the world. Open Road Brands specializes in creating products for companies that have a rich American heritage and brand-loyal customers.
