Ok, guys, time to get real. We are almost three weeks away from Major League Baseball Spring Training and I need some new team swag. (This begs the question, “who doesn’t need more swag?”)
Oh sure, Derek Jeter’s gone and retired on me, and I’m pretty devastated (have I even recovered from Mariano Rivera leaving? Jorge Posada?) But the game goes on and someday, I promise my team will rise to the top again, because that’s what they do.
But anyway, back to the team swag, which is a challenge to find when you’re a big girl like me. And I know I’m not the only sports fan out there struggling with this so I did some recognizance and landed on Majestic Athletic. Originally founded in 1976, they are an “on-field partner” of the MLB (for 30 years now!) So you can score official game jerseys (I’m a snob, I like them to be official), official replicas and other gear for major league teams, in a wide array of sizes.
Even though I’m a giant baseball fan, you will also find lots and lots of sports apparel there. NHL apparel and NFL gear included. I mean, I’ve heard there’s kind of a big football game coming up so this is some good timing. Perhaps some despondent Seattle and New England fans need new shirts…. I’m just sayin’.
I think what I especially love is the selection of older jerseys. I mean, try these names on for size. MANTLE, DIMAGGIO, MATTINGLY. Nothing wrong with a classic!
Your other option is a custom baseball jersey – if you’re the person who likes your own last name on it. Personally, I like to wear the players, though. And while I’m at it, you will also find just general athletic wear here, still up to bigger sizes. The size inclusion – I cannot stress this enough – is what makes me a loyal customer with any online apparel retailer.
GO TEAM GO!
