New England Sports fans, more specifically Boston sports fans, are a special breed. Rabid for sports. Simply can’t get enough. I mean, there’s a reason that there are two sports talk radio stations in town. Many were born into generational fandom, with fathers, grandfathers, aunts, and uncles rooting for the same home team since they were kids. A true sports family, if you will. In some circles, you better be a throwback fan, or you’ll be labeled a “pink hat.” For those devotees, I put together this list of 5 Throwback Gifts for Boston Sports Fans. Hearty, loyal fans who have seen both the very bottom and tip top of the winning cycle but will never give up on their team. I would bet money that there are Patriots sweatshirts out there older than me.
A majority of the teams based in Boston embrace their history in the form of throwback logos and team colors. And, of course, the players that helped them get their name on the map. Names like Bledsoe, Orr, and Bird. Call me old (well, don’t really) but I actually love a throwback logo. Almost all of my team gear is retro-themed. I may or may not own one of the items below. There’s something so inclusive about being a fan of a sports team. I enjoy it when I throw on my Boston Bruins sweatshirt in the morning and random people will yell out “Go B’s!” Or mention how they think the team will play this season. Because we’re all on the same team.
As always, I could’ve given you dozens of options. But I love each of the 5 throwback gifts for Boston sports fans on this list and am confident their nostalgia will inspire you to start tackling that holiday gift list. It’s never too early to get started on that shopping.
