Here's a gently used baseball T-shirt from the recent past. This attractive tee is 100% cotton. Note that this is unlicensed (you'll notice that there is no MLB logo anywhere on the shirt, which is a dead giveaway).
Also, there is a crazy story circulating regarding this design. Legend has it that the recent success of the Indians/Guardians inspired some enterprising young screen printer to design the artwork on this shirt, print up a few dozen, and see if it flew, as the feeling was none of the images he used, alone, were copyrighted. (FYI - No letter can be copyrighted, but it can be trademarked, which is another kettle of fish we won't dive into here).
Anyway, legend has it his few dozen shirts sold like the proverbial hotcakes, and before you knew it, he was printing them up in huge quantities.
As one might assume, MLB can always smell money, and they soon became aware of this design. Again, this is unsubstantiated by us, but MLB supposedly made up their own version of the t-shirt (eerily similar to the original, allegedly, so they could block further production of the now-unbranded "imitation") so you will now only find branded versions of this tee out there.
Something to tell the grandkids...
We measured the shirt for your comparison and got 22" across, and 30.5" top-to-bottom.
Check out the photos and see what you think. Made in Honduras.
