Escaping competition with the San Francisco Warriors (Golden State now) the San Francisco Saints, moved to Oakland and changed their name to the Oakland Oaks. Similar to the Seals Baseball team when the Giants came to town. Unfortunately the league folded after one year, but it left one of the greatest legacies to basketball, the three point line. I can only imagine Oakland Oaks players dreaming of shooting threes like Steph.
We can't stop printing bear shirts. This is our third this year, a simple bear on a navy tee. Can't get more classic than that. Check it our at our online shop, and see that we are doing all of our Jack's Collection tees with local printers on sustainable tees from Alternative Apparel.
1946 was a bad year to start a Negro league team, but for one year, San Francisco was home to the Sea Lions. Their story starts with free uniforms from a amateur team that had a bear cub as their logo, then being led by a kick-ass woman player, and ends with the integration of MLB. African American players were joining professional teams and the Negro American League was defunct by 1949. A very cool piece of San Francisco baseball history, check them out at our online shop!

Funky socks have gone from cool gift, to must have, to wardrobe classic. Here are some of our favorite styles from our favorite sock purveyor: Richer Poorer.
After our years long obsession with the Seals, we went digging for more vintage San Francisco baseball and found this. The Mission Reds. Usually referred to as "The Missions" , this 1926 PCL team had a ten year run as a rival to the Seals. With only one year at the top of the table, the Mission Reds never really gained a footing and moved to LA. If you couldn't get into a Seals game, you could go to a Mission game, drink, and fight. Available at our Online Shop!
Take your pick and rock them in the few sunny days we're getting this "summer." Available in-store only! Come by and check them out.
After the San Francisco Seals baseball team folded with the rest of the PCL, a hockey frenchise decided to pay honor to the decorated team. From 1961 to 1967 the San Francisco Seals hockey team was a high flying, brawling force in the Western Hockey League, winning back to back championships in 1963 and 1964.
They eventually became the California / Oakland / Golden Seals, then moved to Minnesota and became part of the North Stars. The North Stars were then spun off and became the San Jose Sharks, bringing the original California Seals roots back to the San Francisco Bay.
If you know the neighborhood, then you see these every time you think of it. The coolest landmarks in the city center around its coolest hood. The iconic Transamerica Pyramid, must-see Coit Tower, Joe and Marylin's St. Peter/ St. Paul Church, and the Italian flag plastered on every street light pole. We fell in love with North Beach when we opened our second store, and here is our tee for our favorite neighborhood. Available at our Online Shop.
Our The City dad hat is one of our favorite items, and after the Warriors domination we were totally sold out. Well, we finally got around to getting some more, plus our other two favorite things. The California Bear and San Francisco Seals. Check them out at our Online Shop.
