Great Moments In Unlicensed Pittsburgh Sports Merch: Payless Pirates


Thanks to Steve for this. He says:

Saw this at the grocery store tonight. If they had my size, I’d have been all over this one!

[It’s from the] ShopNSave in Kennedy Twp. They always have a rack of stuff from Turtle Creek Sportswear there. Some high school/community gear, some unlicensed pro stuff.”

You gotta love $5 supermarket specials. You know there’s always that 1 or 2 racks of generic sports shirts in any high-quality supermarket.

And this one is right on the money. There’s a sad-looking skull-faced knockoff logo, and the team is renamed the Payless Pirates. Because they don’t pay for good players, you see. That reference totally bummed out the pirate skull when he put 2 and 2 together.

Off topic, but check out the Turtle Creek website. Makes me wanna get all up in the embroidery game.

If you have any unlicensed Pittsburgh sports gear, or awesome generic sports gear from any team, send them to me and I’ll post them.
