There is nothing quite like thinking about the glory days of Major League Baseball. When it was America’s pastime, talked about in the same sentence as apple pie, and names like Mickey Mantle and Willie Mays were already considered two of the best players the game has ever seen.  Tommy Bahama on the other hand, one of the most recognizable brands in the clothing industry, has announced their Tommy Bahama 2013 "Collector's Edition" Major League Baseball shirts. In a style that is most know for designs that excite the imagination and exemplifies relaxation they have has flipped the switch so to speak.  The San Francisco Giants Willie Mays shirt was launched yesterday and the Mickey Mantle shirt has been on the market since April 5.  The Mantle shirt will feature a 1958 photo of arguably the greatest switch-hitter the game has ever seen. The background features stats on the façade of the old Yankee stadium from 1921-2009.  Mays-The Say Hey Kid-shirt features a photo of Mays from 1968 “walking” on the waters of McCovey Cove, along with many other details that any baseball fan will enjoy.  These two shirts are just two of many different pieces of apparel available through their MLB Collection and by looking at what they have to offer, I am pretty sure there are more are to come. With a limited number available they will no doubt go quickly!  Devon is the Founder and Executive Director of The GM's Perspective.
