It sort of does happen in Cricket. Few Cricket bats have distinctive shapes. The only identification is a sticker the Manufacturer slaps on the bat. I am told most cricketers have a personal favorite batmaker who has always made their bats, and they use stickers of whoever pays them at that given moment.

The biggest bat sponsor(MRF) doesn't even make sports equipment. They essentially rent valuable advertising space on the bats of the best cricketers.
