I realize there is a Casey Printers one on the Tiger Town online store, but personally I don't really want a Casey Printers one. (I already have his autographed jersey from last year! How did that work out for me?)
Anyone have any ideas where I would be able to get one made if they aren't available?
I think it might be a good idea for the CFL and member clubs to ask Reebok to make some of these type of t-shirts. The reason I say this is because with the amount of player turnover, it might be a way to sell more merchandise to the people that don't want to commit the $100+ for a custom replica or authentic jersey only to see said player move on in a season. And I am not just saying this because of my Casey Printers jersey! Also, it might be a good idea for the people who don't necessarily find a good fit with football jerseys.
I just think it might be a good idea that's all. Thank you in advance for your help!
175 bucks over 3 years isn't bad. And if he was a legend here and goes somewhere else, that jersey is still good. Hell, I think the most frequent jerseys worn by people at IWS at the moment are Maas and Lumsden jerseys. Never saw a Printers jersey though
And that is definitely one way around the issue. The problem is, being as I was born in 1978, even though I have been a Tiger-Cat almost my entire life, really I didn't become a conscious fan until I was about 12 or so. So that puts me at 1990 to now to select a player's jersey that I really enjoyed watching play and was a fan of.
So who does that leave me with?
To be quite honest, I was a fan of them (maybe not the last two), but I don't think I would get one of their jersey's. And even then, the jersey has changed since then.
Now you see my problem!
I just think the Tiger-Cats and CFL have an opportunity to move a lot of merchandise if they made some jersey style t-shirts available. I'd be willing to bet they would sell 20 of them a lot faster than they would sell one or two custom jerseys.
They need to bring back the real throwback jerseys and make them look like the ones they wore in the 60's and 70's. The ones they sell in the store with the throwback names on them are the jerseys they wear today. l would buy a Mosca jersey if it was old school.
If the team makes their own merchandise line like they have the past 2 seasons and going with minimal reebok gear (one shirt i think this year) why can't they just produce their own player tees? if they can produce their own merchandise what stops them from doing their own instead of using reeboks?
Could go with Joe Montford, too.
I'm born around the same time and, still, I always thought of going with Mosca on the back -- regardless of what style of jersey. Right now, I've got my non-nameplated Winfield jersey.
Would definitely think about snagging a Porter jersey though...
