Mitchell & Ness recently took part in The Philadelphia Collection, a two week event that showcases some of the area's retailers through media events, fashion shows, workshops, etc.
We were happy to be invited to participate this year.
As part of the Collection we held a Fall Preview Event at our retail store for local media and friends of Mitchell & Ness. We thought we'd share with you some of the great pictures that were taken along with a couple articles on our event.

Thanks to everyone who came out to our preview. We look forward to seeing you again next year.
Coming soon to this season's NHL Collection is the Heritage Lonsleeve. This shirt is 100% cotton slub knit with embroidered logos on the center chest and contrast color sleeve stripes.
This is just the piece you need as the weather changes and you gear up for hockey season!
Look for the Heritage Longsleeve in early October.
One of the latest additions to the Fall 2011 NBA collection is the NBA Behind The Back Tee!
On September 22, 1966 the Baltimore Orioles faced the Kansas City Athletics in a game at KC's Municipal Stadium. Orioles ace Jim Palmer was on the mound for Baltimore while Lew Krausse took the ball for the Athletics.
The Athletics took the early lead in the bottom of the second when Sal Bando doubled, scoring Larry Stahl from second. The Orioles came back strong in the third with Luis Aparicio and Frank Robinson crossing the plate and the Orioles were ahead 2 - 1. In the top of the fifth the Robinson boys (Brooks and Frank) both scored increasing the Baltimore lead to 4 -1.
The Athletics brought Catfish Hunter into the game in the sixth inning but he couldn't contain the Baltimore offense. Luis Aparicio singled and scored while Russ Snyder double and scored, increasing the lead to 6 - 1. Jim Palmer held the lead through the ninth inning, ending the game on a line-out by Royals 2B Dick Green. With that, the Orioles won the first American League pennant in franchise history.
The Orioles finished the season with a 97 - 63 record. In the AL Division Series they faced the Cleveland Indians and took the series 3 - 1. In the World Series the met up with the LA Dodgers and to the surprise of many they swept them 4 - 0 to win the first World Series title for the franchise in Baltimore.
It has been nearly a year since we told you about the Mitchell & Ness Pop-Up Shop on the second floor of Philly's premier sneaker destination, Ubiq. Our friends at 1509 Walnut put together a video showcasing the Mitchell & Ness space for all to see.
