I think it's high time that the hundreds (of thousands, probably of millions) of fans be able to display their love of Harry in any number of ways without getting into copyright issues with do-it-yourself.

MichaelConnelly.com needs a store front - seriously.

For ideas, see what author Craig Johnson, author of the LONGMIRE series has done on his website. The website is quirky (operationally) but the Store is absolutely fun for LONGMIRE fans.  http://www.craigallenjohnson.com

Please! Caps, shirts, stickers, slogans, ....  Its not that Michael needs to make more money (which I'm sure he is rolling in at this point), its that the Harry fan base (books and now PRIMEvideo) requires satiation. I speak for myself and I am willing to bet TONS of others.

I have been looking for something as well.
The search comes up so empty, I have taken to buying T-shirts like these:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07FFLK938/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&customId=B07535Y9T6&psc=1
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00O19QIXO/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
They have parts of the works of art of the medieval artist, Hieronymus Bosch.
It does lead to interesting discussions about why I am wearing it, but it would be cool to have some Bosch swag.

Nice idea. And I have also done that. But so much better if, on the back, the following is printed:

Everybody
Counts, or
Nobody
Counts

--Harry Bosch


Please, please, PLEASE!

For that matter, I'd like a shirt where, in the pocket area, it reads:

Harry Bosch

World's Greatest Fictional Cop

We are working on a T-shirt idea as a charitable fundraiser. So please stay tuned. 

Anything Bosch TV show related would have to come from Amazon. The caps and gear you may see now and then on social is what the cast and crew wear. Those aren't for sale anywhere.

Get Your Own Everybody Counts Or Nobody Counts T-Shirt!

This t-shirt sale is a fundraiser benefiting the non-profit organization, My Friend's Place. My Friend’s Place has been stepping in to rescue homeless youth in Los Angeles for decades and I try to support their efforts in whatever way I can. Now you can, too, and at the same time help spread Harry Bosch’s message, his code, to the world. Everybody Counts or Nobody Counts is a doctrine of basic fairness. It is do unto others. We all want the world to be fair, for everybody to get a fair shot and a decent shake. That’s Harry’s goal, and that is the goal of My Friend’s Place. I think they are good partners. And for a limited time, you can join the partnership and show your Bosch colors and code. Buy a T-shirt while supplies last here: https://www.bonfire.com/everybodycounts/

I guess since I started this, I'll comment.

I did order my T-Shirt as soon as I heard about it and notified the rest of our book club in case they were interested.

However, as nice as this is -- great looking shirt and a super - appropriate charitable cause -- this is not what I was pleading for: An assortment of products available on a more or less continuing basis.

Of course, there is no reason the whole swag-store couldn't be set up for charitable purposes. There are multiple ways that could be done. One charity or more than one. To be determined charities down the road as the fund grows. MC sets up his own store, or a long-term arrangement with a charity is established where they run the store and mail out the products. etc. etc.  Multiple ideas, systems.  I stand with my original suggestion.
