Items created as part of MLBPA's 2011 Signature Series line
BOSTON -- During a press conference at the Majestic Clubhouse store on Yawkee Way in Boston, Red Sox players Carl Crawford, Adrian Gonzalez and Kevin Youkilis 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.
The Red Sox Players Choice Signature Series™ jerseys and T-shirts will go on sale June 3 at the Majestic Clubhouse store, online at MLB.com and at Boston-area Olympia Sports, Modell's 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 San Francisco Giants, New York Yankees and Philadelphia Phillies joined the Red Sox 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.
