OZZY OSBOURNE and family have signed a master licensing deal with Signatures Network in San Francisco to allow the firm to market hundreds of OZZY OSBOURNE products, including backpacks, notebooks, caps, wallets, hosiery, loungewear, stickers, dart boards and action figures.
Prices will range from 50 cents for a magnet to more than $40 for a figurine of OZZY or his wife/manager Sharon.
Dell Fuyrano, Signature CEO who has worked with the OSBOURNE clan for nearly 20 years marketing OZZY merchandise, estimates the merchandise should yield about $200 million in retail sales by the end of the year, with about $10 to $15 million going to the family.
