Details on Leaked Camo Jerseys for Carrier Classic
I was able to get a few more details on the leaked image of the camo Michigan State basketball jerseys.
Our friends over at Uni Watch linked to a video about World Series patches being sewn on the St. Louis Cardinals jerseys by the Liebe Company in St. Louis, MO. Uni Watch reader ‘Simply Moono’ noticed at the :52 mark of the video there was a stack of Michigan State basketball jerseys next to the stack of St. Louis Cardinals jerseys.
The basketball jerseys look to be the 2010-2011 home style, but with a digital camouflage pattern.
This wouldn’t be the first time Nike has used the digital camouflage. Army has used it on their football helmets and jerseys for several games, and Ohio State has used it on their helmets for the 2011 spring game.
The camo jerseys are most likely for the Quicken Loans Carrier Classic where Michigan State will play North Carolina on the deck of the aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson. And I bet they were at Liebe Company to get a commemorative patch and player names sewn on.
At the :52 mark, you can see that the stack of Michigan State jerseys is next to a stack of Carolina blue jerseys. It looks like both teams will be wearing the camo jerseys for the Quicken Loans Carrier Classic with Michigan State being the home team (whites), and North Carolina being the away team (darks).
I love the idea of camo jerseys for the Carrier Classic as it’s just another nod of appreciation to those that have selflessly served our country. The event is being held on Veteran’s Day and along with President Obama, there will be more in attendance from the armed forces than the MSU and UNC crowds combined.
