The Supreme Court of Ohio recently ruled on the taxability of promotional merchandise given away at the Cincinnati Reds baseball games. The court decided that the transfer of promotional merchandise to a game attendee was exempt as a sale for resale.

Unique merchandise - from bobbleheads, shirts, and blankets to caps, player cards, and photographs - could only be obtained by attending a game. Fans who purchased tickets to the games did so with the expectation that they would receive promotional merchandise.

The court found that the promotional merchandise was resold to fans, along with the privilege to attend the game, through ticket purchases.
