No sport is quite as quintessentially “American” as baseball. Or, perhaps more accurately, no sport quite evokes Americana — the past, and a bygone era — like baseball. So it’s only fitting that the new Nike Cooperstown 16-Bit Player T-shirt collection so perfectly hearkens back to a previous time, albeit not quite the mid-20th century golden age.
Instead, the new line of tees features a number of greats — both all-timers, like Derek Jeter and Ken Griffey Jr., and the current crop, like Andrew McCutchen and Mike Trout — rendered in 16-bit graphics, recalling the early-90s era of MLB and the associated video games. A miniature golden age unto itself, really.
Look, are they as cool as the Nike Cooperstown Heritage “facial hair” tees? Maybe not. Is anything? But they’re still a fantastic way to marry together vintage style with an ongoing love of baseball. Shop the whole collection here on Fanatics.com.
