Giants unveil personally designed jerseys, T-shirts
Items created as part of MLBPA's 2011 Signature Series line
SAN FRANCISCO -- During a press conference at AT&T Park on Friday, Giants players Matt Cain, Tim Lincecum and Cody Ross unveiled the Players Choice Signature Series™ jerseys and T-shirts they designed exclusively for their fans, with each product expressing their unique personalities and attitudes. Pablo Sandoval also designed Signature Series products, but was unable to attend the unveiling.
The Giants Players Choice Signature Series™ jerseys and T-shirts went on sale June 10 at AT&T Park, online at MLB.com and at San Francisco-area Giants Clubhouse stores, Fanzz and Hat World locations.
The players produced the products in a two-month design and manufacturing process with the Major League Baseball Players Association and its apparel licensee, VF/Majestic, beginning with one-on-one design sessions during Spring Training. Players from the Boston Red Sox, New York Yankees and Philadelphia Phillies joined the Giants players in designing unique apparel items for the 2011 Signature Series collection.
The Signature Series product-line made its debut in 2009, when New York Mets players designed items for sale in the MLBPA's Players Choice Clubhouse retail store located at Citi Field.
In 2010, players from the Yankees, Mets, Phillies and Minnesota Twins designed jerseys, T-shirts and caps as part of the Signature Series collection.
