NIKE T-SHIRTS HONOR BASEBALL’S HAIRY HISTORY
No matter how hard we try, we just can’t seem to stop talking about “hair” in sports. Lately the hairy chatter has surrounded several Pittsburgh Steeler and Green Bay Packer players whose long locks and crazy beards have taken on personalities of their own.
Just as in the NFL, many MLB players utilize their hair as a form of personal on-field expression. Strict uniform guidelines don’t allow for much originality so guys make a fashion statement via their grooming habits. Nike has come up with a new collection of “Cooperstown Heritage” tees which honor great players and their even greater mustaches, beards and famous ‘dos. There are 13 shirts in the line, each with a silhouette face of a baseball superstar like Randy Johnson (Seattle Mariners), Mike Schmidt (Philadelphia Phillies) and Goose Gossage (New York Yankees). In addition to their classic profiles, the vintage style tees feature bold colors and a slim fit. Here’s a sampling:
For the full “Cooperstown Heritage” collection, visit the Nike Store, where the t-shirts retail for $20.00.
