“Touch ‘em all, Joe, you’ll never hit a bigger home run in your life!”
All Blue Jays fans are familiar with Tom Cheek’s iconic words as Joe Carter jumped and hopped around the bases after hitting the first ever come-from-behind walkoff home run to end a World Series. Cheek didn’t plan those words—he was reacting in the moment because he didn’t want Carter to miss a base as he jogged around the diamond.
With baseball suspended indefinitely, BreakingT approached us to capture one iconic moment in franchise history with their new BreakingT Classic series, featuring a series of t-shirts that are licensed by the Major League Baseball Players Alumni Association. How could the first one of those not be of Joe Carter’s homer to give the Blue Jays back-to-back World Series championships?
Speaking of touch—those of you who have purchased t-shirts from BreakingT know how soft they are to touch (and wear) and how long lasting their screen printing is. This is not only a high-quality product, but it is also an officially-licensed one!
Re-watch Joe Carter’s home run and game 6 of the 1993 World Series between the Philadelphia Phillies and Toronto Blue Jays tonight on Sportsnet staring at 7 pm ET.
By following this link to the tee you tell BreakingT that you found it at Bluebird Banter and we get a portion of the sales. It won’t pay for our contributors’ rent but occasionally we collect enough to enjoy a few premium cheese doodles and a basket of chicken wings. Check out the rest of BreakingT’s Classic collection here, featuring the likes of Nolan Ryan, Reggie Jackson, and Al Kaline.
