Apparel - It's tough being a fan of a small market team

Mitchell and Ness made some sweet new henleys...except they only made them for major market teams.

I don't really need to post all of them, but it seems they only produce the Dodgers, Cardinals, Cubs, White Sox, Yankees, Mets, Phillies, Red Sox, and Giants (probably b/c they just won the World Series). It really sucks because I think this style shirt looks awesome, but yet they only make a small percentage of the teams. Gee thanks! Small markets shafted again! :cursing:

It's called marketing. People on the west coast wear Yankee gear. Only people in Miami would buy a Marlins shirt. Well, probably not, but y'all see the point.

I'm not sure people in Miami would buy a Marlins shirt even.

i love m&n but damn are they overpriced.

for anyone in philly, go to the store in xmas, they have huge sales then.

They also have an outlet in the scummy mall in the North East (or the mall in the scummy North East). If you're a XXXL, you can get some sweet North Stars and Whalers gear.

XXXL? So that's what he meant when he said HUGE sales. Hmmm...

That's actually a pretty awesome shirt.

I agree, and it's more appropriate for a team from the 70s. It doesn't make sense for the Brewers (at least the current iteration) to have early 20th century fauxback gear when they weren't even around back then.

That's true. But the Milwaukee Brewers best year was with that logo, so it probably factored into them making that choice. Besides, if Rollie Fingers hadn't gotten hurt, they probably would've won the whole thing against the Cardinals. Maybe they'll make a serious run this year, as it was refreshing to see the Giants win it all last year.

I would imagine that weekday day time wouldn't be that much better, since most that shop there probably don't have jobs. It's a shame too, because the Saks there is really good - it's just in a sea of scum.

It's even worse when you both support a small-market team and live in a country where interest in that sport is marginal at best. As a New Orleans Hornets fan, if I want to buy merchandise I have to buy it online and have it imported.

I imagine it'd be even worse to be an NHL or MLB fan over here, as those sports are even less popular than the NBA...

Should have been around back before the web. This practice was common with NFL gear. With the Saints such a joke for so long, finding anything Saints anywhere was a miracle. Even in the Sears catalog and such, unless it said "All teams available" you knew you were hosed.

Seems funny now with Saints gear everywhere you look. Even here in metro Atlanta, a sports place in a local mall had a whole 4-sided rack of Saints gear.

Ironically, it was much, much easier to get Hornets stuff over here 15-20 years ago - t-shirts, hats, jerseys, jackets - pretty much anything you wanted. Virtually every sports store would have a huge range, and some stores (like Footlocker) were practically NBA-themed stores.
