Mustache shirts? Yes, mustache shirts

This link has been making the rounds:  T-shirts with stylized mustache dude caricatures from various major league teams.

I didn’t check the descriptions to see who each shirt was supposed to represent, but I was able to guess most of them.  I think my favorite one is the Reggie Jackson.

Overall I can’t decide if these things are cool or lame. First, kneejerk impression: awesome. Later impression: still positive, but less awesome as I imagine a lot of them floating around a stadium.  Some shirts just work better if only one dude has them and you have no idea where he got it.  Of course then you’re walking a fine line between cool and hipster, and that has its own set of issues.

Really, t-shirt politics are tough.

UPDATE:  A commenter notes that this may just be a Nike ripoff of this Pavano shirt that a Twins blogger began selling last year.  Hurm.  It’s too early for me to delve into the ethics of a company ripping off a product that is probably subject to an injunction for being unlicensed merchandise in the first place.  Perhaps I’ll take a nap and think about it later.
