I picked this gem up at the Rosebowl Flea in Pasedena, CA. This sweatshirt graphic was printed by the thousands in the 90’s and served as a base graphic or a background design for various NCAA teams. The sweatshirts were distributed throughout college towns all over the nation to local screen printers that would then add one more layer by printing a team’s name such as MICHIGAN, NOTRE DAME, SYRACUSE etc. over the football scene. These sweatshirts were sold in parking lots of stadiums or local mom and pop sporting goods stores. I was stoked to find a vendor who had a stack of these blank sweatshirts with no team. The players scene is perfect on its own.
The same treatment was applied to NCAA basketball shirts, below is an example of a Michigan Wolverines shirt I have:
