Heads up, baseball fans. If you're looking for some gear to set you apart from other fans, check out what Topps (yes, the baseball card company) just made available: Rad throwback shirts that celebrate some of the best teams of the '70s and '80s.
There are seven t-shirts in the series — the 1974 Oakland A's, 1977 New York Yankees, 1979 Pittsburgh Pirates, 1984 Detroit Tigers, 1984 Chicago Cubs, 1986 New York Mets, and 1988 LA Dodgers — that look and feel like they were pulled right out of the Astroturf Era. That's the Oakland shirt at the top of the page. The others are below. Check 'em out:
You can almost smell old baseball cards looking at these things! They're each $34.99 and available at the Topps online store. They're also available in a larger, super-fan set that includes buttons, posters, patches, a hat, shirt, and a pennant. At $99.99, they're a little pricey. But they might make a cool Father's Day gift if you're looking for something a little more unique than a necktie.
Here's a look at the Oakland A's box set:
