Everyone loves a new t-shirt

By

Here’s a fun little story that trickled into my Inbox via Google News last night: T-shirt sales for CC Sabathia are far exceeding the usual demand for player t-shirts. According to Crain’s New York, local stores including Modell’s and the Yankee Clubhouse stores have sold out Sabathia shirts three times over. I don’t have a CC shirt yet. I think I’m going to wait for the Teixeira 25 ones to hit.

    • UWS

      They’ll pry mine from my cold, dead hands.

      You sad, pathetic little white country redneck truck-driving, bible-thumping, Jesus-loving, Nascar-watching, Chipper-Jones-jersey-rocking, assembly-line-working, creationism-embracing, Jeff-Foxworthy-listening, Natural-Ice-drinking, jean-shorts-wearing hick bumpkin.

      I look down on you in my coastal, secular-progressive, black (possibly Arab), elitist snobbery. You are beneath me.

        I’ll look down on you with my New York-secular-Jewish-liberal-hippie-soy-whole-wheat-latte!

          You had me at “secular-Jewish-liberal”…

            LMAO

  • steve (different one)

    and all of these profits are split 30 ways, but the Yankees are bad for baseball.

  • Raul

    I’m waiting for them to sign a fifth starter. If they don’t i’ll buy a Hughes. My plan is to buy a t shirt of every starter. So that everytime i go to the stadium I’m wearing the t shirt of the Yankees starter

    • Should be working

      What if Girardi pulls another “reliever starts the game, starter comes in during the 5th inning”. You better carry the whole bullpen in a backpack just incase.

      • Raul

        Thats why you have the “Master” shirt with the velcro numbers and letters.

        • Should be working

    They have the Teixeira shirts at Modells, but the one by me only had S,M, and XXL. They had tons of CC and AJ shirts in every size however. I even saw an Igawa shirt. Meanwhile, Dicks was selling a green jeter jersey for $10.

    • jsbrendog

        • jsbrendog

          MERCY! IT WAS A GIFT!!!

          and seriously i have been unsuccessful in trying to find a nady shirt since he got traded…wtf….

          • Nady Nation

            I got one. There were some at the Yankee Clubhouse on 36 and 5th, but I’m not sure if they still have any.

    • Let’s Talk About TEX Baby

      Modell’s had a Jeter all star jersey for 20 bucks right before Christmas. Jackpot!

  • Cam

    When they sign a new player, I always wait a while before I invest in a t-shirt, but for some reason I want a Teixera one now. I’m pumped about our new first baseman! My favorite siging of the offseason.

  • http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/CRsmithT1.jpg tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

    Any word on why Modells isn’t stocking the Croussett shirts yet?

    • steve (different one)

      they are.

      it’s just that they can’t be seen by mortals.

      • jsbrendog

        this was enjoyable

    • Andy In Sunny Daytona

      Melvin will wear #3 when he gets called up to the Yankees.

      • steve (different one)

        he will wear #3 on the front of his jersey and #21 on the back.

      • http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/CRsmithT1.jpg tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

        I was assuming that Selig would grant an exception to Melvin and allow him to simply have a likeness of Mariano himself on the back of his jersey, in place of a number.

  • Raul

    Why hasn’t Swish got a number yet?

    • Balls Deep

      Because they are not sure that he’ll ever wear the uniform.

    I bought two CC shirts right before x-mas, one blue and one grey. Modell’s was selling them for $14.99, and usually it costs ~$30 to get one shirt off the official site with shipping and all that. The other day I got a Tex and Burnett shirt, different Modell’s though.

    • http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/CRsmithT1.jpg tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

      Did the Burnett t-shirt come with any scar tissue?

      • jsbrendog

        no but it came with jeff nelson’s elbow bone spurs they wouldnt let him sell on ebay a few years ago

  • http://www.scottproctorsarm.com Andrew Fletcher

    I got a Sabathia shirt over the holidays. I usually wait to purchase the new acquisitions until after they’ve played games, but this was a gift.

  • steve (different one)

    i was waiting for Teixeira to come out. i will pick one of those up.

  • Nady Nation

    TSJC – I answered your Eli/Warner question a few threads back. Not to be off topic, we can get more into it in an open thread.

    • http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/CRsmithT1.jpg tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

      I saw. I’m not really starting an Eli debate, just teasing Giants fans a bit.

      • Nady Nation

        Yea, I replied back. I’m in a vulnerable state today so your teasing was successful. Thanks for making my day even worse. I hate you

        • http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/CRsmithT1.jpg tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

          If it’s any consolation, Robert Goulet hates me as well.

          He called me “Tommy ‘the Spic’ Carlos” in a moderated comment that didn’t make the site, before Joe booted him off. I’m not making that up.

          Hilarious on so many levels.

          • Nady Nation

            Wow, that is insane. A Giant-related hate comment? Or just general displeasure with your character?

            • http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/CRsmithT1.jpg tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

              Just displeasure with my character, as well as Mike, Ben, and Joe. He didn’t take too kindly to us disagreeing with his inanity, or doing so so thoroughly or snarkily, apparently.

              We all live in our mothers basements and we’re computer geeks with irrational man-love for Cashman. I’m paraphrasing, but not that much. Joe was so flabbergasted by the racist, cliched bizarreness of his final attempt to stab at us with his rapier’s wit, he emailed it to me. It was pathetic.

              • jsbrendog

                MOM!!! MEATLOAF!!!

                • http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/CRsmithT1.jpg tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

                  Damn you, Roger.
                  Roger!
                  Damn you, Roger!
                  Damn it!
                  Damn you!

  • Nady Nation

    Regarding the Teix shirts, anyone else notice that the blue Teix shirts were considerably smaller than the grey ones, and the other players (CC, Burnett) blue shirts at Modell’s? I held off buying one because I was afraid it would shrink too much in the wash.

  • usty

    I’m just searching Ebay for the stupid sellers of bootleg jerseys dumping their giambi jerseys.

    • Nady Nation

      Haha, I’ve been trying that too. Great strategy

    • steve (different one)

      interesting. i like that idea.

  • Yank Crank 20

    I’m waiting on my Swisher shirt. I wonder if he’ll go back to 33 or stick with the Dirty 30?

  • Wayne’s World

    I heard that the shirts all say:

    CC $abathia
