The news has Sox fans — both diehards and Johnny-come-lately bandwagon types — reaching for their wallet. In this spirt then, here are 21 of the most redonkulous Red Sox items available for purchase on the Interwebz.
1.This t-shirt that trades on a reference a measure more obscure that your average team swag. (Sidenote: I don't know what type of blanks they print on but this is the softest tee in my rotation.)
2.This Jim Rice mesh batting practice jersey (circa 1989).
3.For those with deep pockets, this 2007 World Championship ring, given previously to a club employee but now up for auction. #blingring
There's a diamonds on the diamond pun in here somewhere but I just can't seem to finesse it out...
4.This incredibly rare satin Starter jacket from the '80s. The blue variant was a dime-a-dozen but the red is an elusive find.
5.This canvas gym bag, printed in a distressed fashion to lend it a vintage property.
6.This sharp little cardigan. It'll make you look distinguished.
7.This fleece hoodie with a throwback print.
8.This authentic collection Diamond Era game cap, which comes complete with World Series patch on the side.
9.These striped tube socks. Because SOX.
10.This puffy snap button vest.
11.This David Ortiz minifig. With beard.
12.This out-of-left-field zombie figurine which makes zero sense (but I want it anyway).
13.These awesome sunnies.
15.This vintage ringer t-shirt commemorating the team's 1986 ill-fated playoff appearance. (True story: I had this shirt in college but it was pilfered by an ex.)
16.This striped v-neck emblazoned with an oversized "B".
17.These custom-painted TOMS.
18.These slippers shaped to resemble high top sneaks.
19.This t-shirt which serves as a timely reminder not to get champagne in your eyes.
20.These seats from Fenway Park, OMG!
21.Finally, there's this atrocity. What kind of sick monster would coat a batting helmet in tiny, bedazzled sequins?
