The Pirates run a promotion every year called free shirt Friday. It was a pretty cool promotion in which a ticket to a Friday home game would also net you a t-shirt. The shirt is usually sponsored by an area business so the downfall is you would have some type of company logo placed prominently on the back. While most of the shirts are pretty nice, some funny ones pop up.
Usually the more outrageous shirts are the ones that feature an actual player. If you want a good gag gift may I suggest this AJ Burnett shirt.
The crazy thing is this shirt actually sells well on the secondary market. I've been trying to buy it for one of my friends because we made so much fun of it, but it goes for way more than I would be willing the spend.
When they first started this promotion I would make it a point to try and go to as many as possible. In recent years the traffic to get to a Pirates game on a Friday has been outrageous because of construction so I've missed out on many of the cool shirts.
Last month I was searching for something on eBay and a nice lot of some of the better shirts from last season popped up.
I ended up winning the auction for around $27 if I recall so it turned out to be a cheap way to update the Pirate t-shirt collection.
Let me know if you guys would like an AJ Burnett tshirt to wear around.......
Thanks for reading!
