Detroit Tigers and friends: 2012 World Series Champs “Phantom” Merch

Written By:  •  Wednesday, October 31, 2012

Happy Hallowe’en everyone, let’s celebrate the spooky holiday with our annual World Series Champions “phantom” merchandise post!

This year our phantom world champs are the Detroit Tigers who swept away the Bronx Bombers in the ALCS before being swept themselves by the San Francisco Giants.

As with all of the other rounds of the playoffs we unfortunately weren’t able to find any of the official locker room t-shirts, so our apologies for that, it seems the fine folks at Majestic are doing everything they can to keep their championship gear from getting out in the open — can’t fault them for that. This post will focus on all the other gear we were able to find, including World and League Championship caps for every team who qualified for the post-season.

So, for your enjoyment, here is the phantom 2012 postseason merchandise that we hadn’t yet covered in our Yankees AL champs and Cardinals NL champs posts:

    “5 Time Champions” …. if only. *sigh*

    Go Get ‘Em Tigers in 2013!

      I always try to include merchandise that includes what would have been the new number of titles, I feel that’s probably the one that hits home the most…

  • Michael Q.

    I’m suprised they got Los Angeles Dodgers World Series gear when they didn’t even make the playoffs.

  • Marc

    Where can we find some of this merchandise here in the States? It would be fun to walk around with one of this shirts just to annoy someone. I would love a 2012 Stanley Cup Champion shirt with the Devils’ logo on it.

    • Chris Creamer

      Sometimes you can find them at second-hand stores but it is extremely rare

  • Matt Jones

    Oh, the Braves merch makes me sad all over again. 🙁

    Why is there Dodgers stuff when they didn’t even make the playoffs?

      Nice find!

  • SFforlife

    I agree, what the…dodgers? They even dropped out of the damn 2nd WC! It’s terrifying to actually see….*ugh*.

  • Brandon B.

    Do you have world series championship t-shirts along with the hats?

  • Joey

    That would be nice if the Orioles really won.

  • Ben D.

    Random observation: On that Rangers cap, the circle with the T in it looks a lot like the Rangers primary logo.

  • Alpo

    i found some 2011 Rangers World Champs t-shirts on ebay. What should I do?

  • Kevin

    Why are the Dodgers on even here? They didn’t even make it to the playoffs.

  • sportsfan

    What’s the value of a phantom world champion hat/t-shirt?
