This past weekend was a big one in College Football. Florida made a statement by trouncing South Carolina, heading into a big match up with Georgia. Also, Notre Dame remained unbeaten by beating BYU. One team you probably didn’t hear about this past weekend was Boise St. The no. 24 ranked Broncos beat UNLV 32-7 at home on the Smurf turf, but did so while wearing their new “blackout” uniforms. While we tend to see Boise in either white or blue, this past Saturday the team and it’s staunch defense came onto the field in all black uniforms with a silver outlined Bronco on the helmet. The uniforms have some typical Boise blue outline around the numbers on the front of the jersey, but otherwise, black dominates these jerseys.
Recently we saw the Jacksonville Jaguars change the team’s official home jerseys from teal to black, with solid results from fan sales. On the other hand, if Boise St. was trying anything here, it was not just to sell more jerseys, but also to attract recruits. The blackout jerseys were some of the better ones we’ve seen recently, especially matching up with the blue turf of the Broncos home field.

Wilt Chamberlain was a basketball legend, considered by many to be the most athletic and talented player to ever strut onto the NBA hardwood. The big man, who wore number 13 and was famous for wearing the sweatband on his head, once dropped 100 points in Hershey, PA. PLA has the exclusive line of shirts of the Wilt Chamberlain line.

PLA has also come out with another new line. The NASL was founded in 1968 when the FIFA-sanctioned United Soccer Association merged with the unsanctioned National Professional Soccer League. The league included teams from the U.S. and Canada and featured legends such as Pelé, Kyle Rote Jr., Bob Rigby and Franz Beckenbauer. In addition they also had an indoor soccer division from 1975-1984. The league eventually folded in 1984. Check them out here: http://www.proleagueauthentics.com/collections/nasl
