This is the season to retire the knockoff jersey.
Being a baseball fan is a commitment. I say this from personal experience. You pledge to follow a team for a full 162-game season, knowing full well that they’re probably going to break your heart at some point. But nevertheless, you get invested through watching every game, hanging hope up on star prospects and clutch free agent signings, and believing that this could be the year where it all comes together. But before you can splurge on World Championship gear, you’re going to want to build out your game day essentials. We’re talking about hats, jerseys, shirts, and outerwear. A stacked lineup that lets everyone know who your team is. With Fanatics now GOVX ID enabled and the season just starting, there’s never been a better time to load up on licensed team gear and get to a ballgame.
New Era Game Authentic Collection On-Field 59FIFTY Fitted Hat
Most fans have nothing against snapbacks, but for the sake of authenticity, there’s no substitute for a properly fitted cap. You know, the kind that looks good with nearly every outfit, even if you’re not into the whole bent bill thing. With raised embroidery, structured fit, and six panels with eyelets for maximum ventilation, New Era continues to crown winners on and off the field.
Nike Authentic Replica Team Jersey
It really comes down to whether you want to rep a player on your back or just the team on the front. As a sad Oakland Athletics fan, I usually opt for the latter. But enough about me, with Nike now in complete charge of all on-field apparel, the quality of jerseys is at an all-time high. The full-button designs succeed in both honoring the classics where needed and providing a fresh, field-ready look for all 30 teams. If you’ve got a superstar player in mind, the crisp applique graphics for both the name and number on the back are sure to turn heads. Even from the cheap seats.
Nike Authentic City Connect Jersey
Look, Nike has done a hell of a job boosting the cool factor from the moment they partnered with the MLB. Never has that been more apparent in their introduction of the City Connect series. Invoking civic pride in every edition, the shoe king has been strategic in their drops, building anticipation amongst a cloud of secrecy and speculation until the big debut. With 20 teams currently rocking their new duds on any given day, and 5 more scheduled to join the ranks in 2023, odds are that your team has an alternative look just waiting to complement your collection. At the risk of being a homer, we can’t speak highly enough about the Padres picture-perfect threads.
Nike Authentic Collection Velocity Performance T-Shirt
You’ll probably never get the call-up to the big leagues, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be prepared anyway. For those who prefer to operate a little more subtly when it’s showtime, this clubhouse favorite provides the ideal amount of style with substance. A future contender for your new favorite shirt, each team version is constructed with a combination of lightweight polyester and sweat-wicking Dri-FIT tech.
Nike Authentic Collection Pregame Performance Hoodie
No matter where you are in the country, the beginning of the season can be a brisk time to take in a game, especially if you’re a fan of primetime action. Wearing what the pros wear to triumph over the April chills is still the best way to avoid shivering in your seats. Uniting Nike’s patented sweat-wicking Dri-Fit technology with heat-trapping Nike Therma fabric for a breathable warmth you can rely on, this pullover is just as versatile as your team’s resident utility player.
