Well here it is, folks. This will be the jersey for the AHL Outdoor Classic at Citizen’s Bank Park on January 6, 2012.
From the Hershey Bears:
The Hershey Bears will wear commemorative Outdoor Classic jerseys during the Outdoor Classic at Citizens Bank Park on January 6th. Outdoor Classic game worn jerseys will be auctioned off following the Hershey Bears home game on Saturday, January 7th.
As you can see in the image, the crest will be a special Bears Outdoor Classic logo. The shoulders will have patches with the Bears and Phantoms represented. Each of the club’s logos will overlay an image of Citizen’s Bank Park to commemorate the teams and location of the game.
The word right now is that these are not for sale in the Hershey Sports store in the Giant Center. A quick look through the AHL Store and I did not see any there either. As far as I can tell, the Phantoms have not released their jersey for the game, and I don’t see anything in their store. From the looks of it, the only way to get one of these might be at the auction on January 7th. As always, the auction will benefit a charity of the team’s choosing. I might have to change my Christmas wish list to “just send me cash so I can try to get one of these jerseys.”
