History of Michigan State Football & Michigan State Basketball Jerseys

As featured on ESPN.com, SI.com, Rivals, Yahoo Sports and UniWatch Blog, Spartan Jerseys is dedicated to the history of the jerseys worn by the Michigan State football and Michigan State basketball teams.

The documented history of the Michigan State football jersey, Michigan State football helmet and Michigan State basketball jersey is catalogued by style, season and head coach.

The Michigan State football section contains the complete history of the Michigan State football jersey and Michigan State football helmet. Beginning with the winged helmet, worn by Michigan State football players in 1934, and continuing to the present style designed by a two-year branding partnership with Nike.

The Michigan State basketball section contains the history of the Michigan State basketball jersey, beginning with the Reebok Michigan State basketball jerseys worn by Tom Izzo’s national championship team, and ending with the Nike Michigan State basketball jerseys, worn by the current Michigan State basketball team.

I hope that this site brings back the memories of the storied tradition of both Michigan State football and Michigan State basketball.

My future Michigan State graduate

September 15, 2014

This past summer, my wife and I welcomed our first child into the world. Just like many new parents do, we hired a photographer to take our baby pictures. Living in Charlotte, NC we searched for a Charlotte newborn photographer and hired Staci Noel Photography.

Staci asked us to bring props that we would like our son pictured with. I chose my 2008 Michigan State football helmet that has Dantonio’s signature, along with Javon Ringers #23 jersey. As you can see, the picture turned out great, exceeding our expectations.

We plan on using Staci again for our Charlotte newborn photography of kid #2, and am already thinking of my next props. Hint: my game used chrome helmet from the 2013 Nebraska game.

New Hockey Jerseys Released, “Hockey Script” returns on Alternate

June 28, 2012

Head coach Tom Anastos unveiled the new 2012-2013 hockey jerseys today. More importantly, he unveiled the new alternate “vintage” jerseys, which resurrects the “hockey script,” a fan-favorite logo that was scrapped in the 2010 rebranding.

From the press release: Michigan State hockey program will have four new jersey designs for the 2012-13 season, which includes new standard home and away jerseys as well as a set of vintage Michigan State sweaters that will debut in the Great Lakes Invitational.

“In developing this new design, we gathered a lot of feedback from our players about the jersey’s fit, feel, performance and look,” said head coach Tom Anastos. “We feel that the design that Nike has developed has a cutting-edge look and embraces the values of the Spartan brand.”

The press release also gives a history lesson about the hockey script: “The script `Michigan State’ logo was introduced in my freshman season [1980-81] and over the course of time, became one of the iconic jerseys in college hockey,” said Anastos

Michigan State’s basketball court has been repainted, again

June 15, 2012

Today, the Michigan State Athletic department released an image of a repainted Breslin Center floor. The floor was last repainted two basketball seasons ago with the design aligning to the new athletic branding.

Differences in the new design include a significantly larger Michigan State Helmet Logo at center court, new Big Ten logos in the lane and the removal of the two-tone coloring inside the three-point line.

For those eagle eyes out there, the picture looks like it was taken with a cell phone misrepresenting the green coloring. MSU did not change the green again.
