Great Moments in T-Shirt History

I apologize for the quality of the photo. It’s the best I could do with my camera phone. What you are looking at is a custom made (I’m assuming it’s custom made anyways) #49 Rod Allen T-shirt. The shirt on its own is a stroke of genius, but it is enhanced greatly by being paired with a custom made (I’m assuming it’s custom made anyways) no number Cobb T-shirt.

This duo ranks second in “best ball park wear” behind the guy I saw in 2004 with a duct taped VINA and number 9 applied directly to his back. Sadly there is no photo.

However their work will live on along with other T-shirt greats like this.

So thanks to two very creative gentleman I now have a post tagged with both Rod Allen and Ty Cobb.

    I’ve seen a few other old school jerseys sported around town. Chester Lemon, Rusty Kuntz, Percival, Matt Anderson, etc.

    Those are AWESOME. That gives me an idea for a SWEET #35 Randall Simon t-shirt jersey.

    I have a Lemon #34 jersey. You get some funny looks wearing it in Idaho… 🙂

    Would love a Grandy jersey. Also wouldn’t mind another old one…Gibby or Morris prolly.

    I saw some at Yankee Stadium with a Lemon shirt.
    I’m still holding out for a Gibson sighting.
    That would be Paul Gibson.
