Tommy Bahama and Major League Baseball Properties are kicking off the 2013 baseball season with two collector’s edition shirts featuring the legendary players Willie Mays and Mickey Mantle.
The two players, along with their respective teams–the San Francisco Giants and the New York Yankees–will be featured in the limited edition line, which will be available in early April.
In addition to the two collector’s edition shirts, Tommy Bahama will also offer a variety of camp shirts and knits featuring different MLB team logos, as well as Spring Training shirts for the Cactus and Grapefruit Leagues.
"As Major League Baseball looks toward the start of the 2013 baseball season, we are excited that Tommy Bahama is offering fans the exclusive 2013 collector's edition series that pays homage to two of the most iconic players ever to have been a part of the game," says Howard Smith, senior vice president, licensing, MLB. "Our relationship with Tommy Bahama continues to grow season after season and we are proud that it is creating unique and creative designs and offerings that our fans have come to expect from this great partnership."
Tommy Bahama’s partnership with the MLB began in 2010 with the release of a World Series collector’s edition shirt.
"Tommy Bahama is proud to work with the MLB to honor baseball legends Willie Mays and Mickey Mantle," says Terry Pillow, chief executive officer, Tommy Bahama. "Our long-standing relationship with the MLB has given us the opportunity to offer our customers special items like the 2013 collector's edition shirts, which are truly works of art."
