Sports Swag has been designing shirts since the San Francisco Giants’ magical run to the 2010 World Series championship. We set up a store on Zazzle.com and then the hard work started: getting people to buy our shirts. We found a bit of success from Zazzle, but nothing to put us on the map. We took a hiatus after the World Series to evaluate our options going forward. But in 2011, the next step for us became clear. Kabir won a logo contest being held by San Jose Sharks defenseman Brent Burns. His winning logo led to an official Brent Burns snapback hat. And just like that, Sports Swag was born. We released our first line on Kabir’s birthday, March 10th. They arrived shortly after and we started to officially ship shirts on April 10th.
Since then we have released many new designs and have worked with many pro athletes for either promotional reasons or providing them with apparel. We’ve done custom shirts for Red Sox minor league pitcher Matt Barnes and minor league catcher Blake Swihart. We’ve also hooked up plenty of athletes that love our shirts! Some of our clientele includes: San Francisco Giants All-Star Pablo Sandoval, 49ers offensive lineman Alex Boone, Colorado Rockies infielder Jordan Pacheco, Red Sox top prospect Jackie Bradley Jr., Washington Nationals All-Star Gio Gonzalez, and even motivational speaker Eric Thomas.
