Jay-Z And NY Yankees Agree To Apparel Deal
“I can make a Yankee hat, more famous than a Yankee can”–Hov
Nets minority owner and true New Yorker Jay-Z recently agreed to team up with the Bronx Bombers for the release of a limited-edition apparel collaboration including various hats and t-shirts. The deal was put in place to commemorate the Jay-Z/Eminem concerts that are being held on back-to-back nights at Yankee Stadium September 13 & 14.
Here are the details of the joint venture from a joint press release by the Yankees and Jay-Z:
The Jay-Z/Yankee apparel went on sale Monday exclusively at the stadium and will be available there through the historic performances in a few weeks. Jay-Z and the Yankees
All items will feature the presence of Yankees and JAY-Z logos, and all items have been seen and approved by JAY-Z.
Merchandise will include men’s and women’s T-shirts and hooded sweatshirts — all by Majestic — along with New Era 59/50 fitted Yankees caps with the album logo from JAY-Z’s The Blueprint 3.
Apparently Jigga wasn’t joking when he claimed that he can make a Yankee hat more famous than a Yankee can, because it’s very close to becoming a reality.
