Tommy Bahama and Major League Baseball honor one of baseball’s most celebrated players with the release of the 2016 “Collector’s Edition” Series shirt featuring David Ortiz. The shirt pays tribute to the three-time World Series Champion and nine-time All-Star ahead of the final season of his career.
“We are so excited to be able to develop a special ‘Collector’s Edition’ shirt honoring David Ortiz’s amazing career,” said Doug Wood, CEO of Tommy Bahama. “It’s projects like this one that have made our long-standing partnership with Major League Baseball so rewarding.”
The Tommy Bahama MLB “Collector’s Edition” Series shirts are premium, collectible apparel for the true baseball fan. Each “Collector’s Edition” shirt features classic baseball images incorporated into custom designed artwork that includes the player’s name, team logo, key stats and landmarks of his home team. Only a limited number of shirts are produced and each one is numbered.
The 2016 David Ortiz “Collector’s Edition” Series shirt showcases a classic image of Ortiz hitting a home run out of Fenway Park. The Red Sox logo, Ortiz’s signature, the number 34 and his silhouette are all embroidered on the finely detailed 100% silk print shirt. The back of the shirt features Big Papi’s career highlights and awards against the backdrop of Fenway Park’s iconic Green Monster. A woven label inside the collar shows the classic pose he strikes after each home run he hits. The shirt comes in a custom designed garment bag to be treasured as a fine collectible.
“I’m excited to announce the partnership with my guys at Tommy Bahama,” said David Ortiz. “The event and these unique shirts are a great way to kick off my final season in the Major Leagues.“
The Tommy Bahama MLB 2016 “Collector’s Edition” Series shirt featuring David Ortiz retails for $250 and only a limited number of shirts will be produced. The shirt will be available in mid-March exclusively at www.tommybahama.com and select Tommy Bahama stores.
Tommy Bahama will also host a special event with “Big Papi” during Spring Training at the Tommy Bahama Restaurant, Bar & Store in Naples, FL. Additional events are being planned for the 2016 baseball season.
