MLB - New for 2013

September 18, 2012 1 Comment

  

We’ve already learned that the Houston Astros are going back to some sort of orange and blue shooting star combination for next season, only modernized, when they move into the American League West division.

The Mets have unveiled the first All Star Game patch minus any team or city reference since the 2005 game for next summer’s game in Flushing, and now, the Colorado Rockies have unveiled their 20th anniversary logo for next season which will be worn as a jersey patch (pictured above). 

For the Rockies, it’s their fourth anniversary/commemorative patch in team history, joining the patch they wore in their inaugural season of 1993, the first season of play at Coors Field in 1995, the 1998 All Star game patch, and the 10th anniversary patch of 2003

It’s likely the Marlins will join Colorado with a 20th anniversary patch as well.

Authentic Store Buzz:  They’re here!  Nike Elite authentic jerseys for the Eagles, both the green jersey and the alternate black jersey in Michael Vick’s number 7 (pictured above left to right). 

With the team off to a 2-0 start for the first time since the 2004 Super Bowl appearance season, there’s obviously plenty of enthusiasm among fans who have been flocking into the store,

We’re closing in on two events coming up:  Left Field Cards presentation with artist Amelie Mancini on Thursday, October 4 from 6-8pm at our Center City Philly location (137 S. 13th Street).  The event will mark the official unveiling of Amalie’s “Presidents of the United State of Baseball” letterpress baseball cards. 

Then on Saturday Oct. 6, is the annual Midtown Village Fall Festival in which 13th Street in front of the store is closed to traffic and it’s one giant block party throughout the area in which merchants set up out in front of the stores.  We invite you stop by for the day-long event (noon-8pm), they’ll be all sorts of the special proceedings going on in and around the store.

American Needle Fitted Hats

If you do not know your size, first determine where on your head you want to wear your hat. Usually it is worn about a half-inch to an inch above the eyebrows and/or just above the ears. Have a friend hold the tape measure (cloth, plastic, or download a printable version here) at the point where you want the hat to rest on your head.  Insert the tip of your little finger between the tape and your head.  Record the measurement and find your Fitted Hat size using the chart below.  This should provide you with a comfortable fit.

Apparel Sizing Tips:

Use these tips as a general guide when finding your measurements:

Chest/Bust: With your arms at your sides, measure around the fullest part of your chest, across shoulder blades and under arms.

Waist: To measure your natural waistline, wrap the tape so it intersects your navel. Keep tape flat, but comfortably loose.

Hips: Stand with your heels together and measure the fullest part of your hips. Make sure the measuring tape is level all the way around your body.

Inseam: Stand up straight, and start the tape measure high in your crotch. Straighten the tape down the inside of your leg to the bottom of your ankle.
