ECHL Team to Wear Gettysburg Address Jerseys

Condors Gettysburg Address JerseyOf all the unusual minor league promotional jersey nights, this is one I never thought we’d see.

The Bakersfield Condors (ECHL, Edmonton Oilers) will be wearing special jerseys commemorating the 150th anniversary of President Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address on Sunday.

The front of the jerseys are cream with a sublimated black and white depiction of President Abraham Lincoln reading his famous speech on November 19, 1863, with a Condors logo (complete with Lincoln’s famous stove-pipe hat) a banner below acknowledging the anniversary.

On the back, the words of the speech are written out, the opening line “Four score and seven years ago”, bolded and featured right under the collar. Finally a scene from the Battle of Gettysburg is shown at the bottom.
