Okay Yankees fans, we are happy to offer, for the first time, two Bernie Williams jerseys. They are both from the 1995 season.
On August 13, 1995 Mickey Mantle passed away. From that time, through the remainder of the season, the Yankees wore a black armband and a # 7 on their left sleeve to honor "The Mick". We've had a lot of requests for this jersey through the years so we're happy to be able include it in our Yankees collection.
Also in 1995, the Yankees wore a mesh batting practice jersey. This jersey is different from any other bp jerseys that we've seen because it has a two button placket at the front neck. That, along with the white sleeve stripe, make this a unique and stylish Yankees jersey. Another great addition to our Yankees jersey collection.
Let us know if there are any other Williams jerseys that you'd like to see from us in the future.
Now that this season's NBA Finals matchup has been finalized, who will win it all?
When you look at the matchup, it has a good guys versus bad guys feel to it. It is a story of redemption versus validation. It feels scripted. The Dallas Mavericks are the feel good story. It’s a story of redemption for Dirk Nowitzki, after the Mavericks blew a 2-0 series lead in the NBA finals five years ago. After years of hearing “he is soft” and “he can’t close out games,” Dirk has slayed almost all of his demons in these NBA playoffs. The only demon left to vanquish is winning an NBA Championship. And who do Dirk and Mavericks need to get through to win that title? The Miami Heat, the same team that came back from a 0-2 series deficit to win the NBA Championship five years ago. The legend of Dirk continues…
The Heat is playing the role of the villain this season. After “The Decision” and “The Welcoming Party,” the Heat became the team people love to hate. People hate that LeBron and Bosh left their teams/fans to make a powerhouse in Miami. People hate that they celebrated their Conference Semi-Finals win against the Celtics as if they had already won the title. Despite their critics, the Heat is on a mission to prove it was all worth it. It was worth it for LeBron and Bosh to leave behind everything they have ever known as an NBA player. It was worth it to take all the criticism from the media and the fans. It was worth it because they are four wins away from an NBA title.
So, who do you have winning the NBA Championship in ‘11?

The 1989 Stanley Cup Final was between the Calgary Flames and the Montreal Canadiens. On May 25, 1989 the Calgary Flames defeated the Montreal Canadiens with a 4-2 series victory. The Calgary Flames were also the first relocated NHL team (from Atlanta in 1980) to win the Stanley Cup.
Al MacInnis won the Conn Smythe Trophy as playoff MVP, and at 31 points, became the first defenseman to lead the NHL in post-season scoring. Lanny McDonald scored the second Flames goal in game six. This turned out to be the last goal in his NHL Hall of Fame career because he retired during the following off-season. Having capped his regular season career with an even 500 career goals and 1,006 points, McDonald's final goal in the NHL was to have his name forever etched on the side of the Stanley Cup. "I scored my first goal ever in the National Hockey League in the Montreal Forum. And I scored my last goal in my final game, again, in the Montreal Forum. I was part of the on-ice lineup for that winning game and we were the only team other than the Canadiens ever to win the Stanley Cup on Forum ice. All those things added up to me thinking, 'Boy, it's a sign! It's time I was outta here.' What a great way to go!" - Lanny McDonald
*Did you know?: The Flames were named after the famous fire of Atlanta started by General William Tecumseh Sherman in 1864 destroying the key southern city of Atlanta, which was considered the beginning of the end of the Civil War. Upon moving to Calgary the team kept the name in honor of the city's oil industry.
