During the war there were lots of semi pro sports teams playing around the country that drew huge crowds because everyone needed a way to escape the daily war news. The Clippers were one of those teams. Part of the PCPFL (Pacific Coast Professional Football League) which was the only real football on the West Coast at the time. The league folded in 1948 when the NFL finally decided to come west. Look close and you can see where the 49ers got some of their inspiration. Buy it now in our store.
The PCL has been doing their thing now since the early 1900s. No doubt though, the heyday was the 30s through the 50s before major league ball embraced the West and players like Joe DiMaggio were putting the big leagues to shame. In honor of the beginning of baseball season we're selling some of our favorite team shirts with the best throwback logos. Be cooler than the guy next to you at the stadium wearing one of these bad boys.
For those of you that have been following our saga of the NBA licensing you've heard that we couldn't sell one of our top shirts from 47 Brand anymore because of the Nike NBA deal. Finally, we've found our replacement from Mitchell & Ness. The same great fabric you expect at Jack's with a bit more of a pronounced feel to the print. We're excited to be selling Mitchell & Ness, one of the oldest sports tees companies around.
Every once in a while we find something that is beyond cool. This original Seals logo hat is one of them. Put it on and imagine you're back in the 30's hanging with Joe at the old Seals stadium.
I know we're a bit whiny but when it hits 30s here, that's pretty damn cold. Broke a record today. In honor of the cold we thought we would come up with a new list of "It's colder than..."
