The Best Unofficial Baseball Shirts for Postseason Teams!

Last month’s look at unofficial and unlicensed baseball shirts was a big hit, even being picked up by SI.com’s Extra Mustard. So, since I’m never the type to quit while I’m ahead, I’ll do another. So, with the postseason starting tomorrow, here are the best unofficial and/or unlicensed (or, in extreme circumstances, just plain cool) t-shirts for those teams. Click the links to be brought to the stores that are selling them.

(Note: Some of these are not technically unofficial, but are rather licensed by individual players or the Hall of Fame. You’ll see, for example, a HOF Reggie Jackson shirt that conspicuously doesn’t have any Yankees logos on it.)

(GO BELOW THE JUMP FOR MORE)

Kansas City Royals

Let’s start with the defending AL Champion Royals. First thing’s first, “Skipharvey” pays tribute to the Royals’ speed with this T-shirt:

Screen Shot 2015-09-10 at 10.44.52 PM“SamKanKC” does this tribute to Kansas City and also the Kansas City teams of years gone by, such as the Monarchs and Athletics:

Screen Shot 2015-09-10 at 11.06.06 PMParty like it’s 1985!

Across Missouri, the St. Louis Cardinals. The onetime home of a certain wizard:

Yes, the Wonderful Wizard of Oz:

By the way, ever wanted to see Fredbird look like Batman? Because you can:

Screen Shot 2015-09-10 at 11.26.46 PMIt’s possible that the Cardinals will face the Royals in the World Series this year. The last time that happened, of course, was 1985. That was the heart of the Nintendo Entertainment System’s era, which you can pay tribute to with this pixelized version of a Cardinals player:

Screen Shot 2015-09-10 at 11.34.00 PMHere’s a nice design by “PaullyG29” that combines St. Louis’ love of the Cardinals with the city’s most famous landmark:

Screen Shot 2015-09-10 at 11.38.04 PMSay, remember the Rally Squirrel? This guy does:

Screen Shot 2015-09-10 at 11.46.59 PM

Finally, for those Cardinals fans who feel (probably rightly) that everybody is rooting against them in the National League playoffs, here’s a shirt for you:

Screen Shot 2015-09-10 at 11.45.08 PMNew York Mets

There were plenty of Mets last month, but there are a few more things. For example, Loudegg has a Captain America/David Wright mashup that wasn’t there last time:

Screen Shot 2015-09-11 at 12.03.50 AMHere’s a neat Mets shirt that pays tribute to the year of their birth and the subways of their city:

Screen Shot 2015-09-11 at 12.11.52 AMIf you want to honor the late, great Gary Carter, then 500 Level has something for you,  as well as a similar shirt for Tom Seaver:

Screen Shot 2015-09-24 at 9.48.41 PM

Finally, some of you may remember that there was decorative neon art on the outside of Shea Stadium. Now, you can honor those neon signs with this t-shirt:

Screen Shot 2015-09-24 at 10.01.49 PM

Pittsburgh Pirates:

Thanks to the creativity of fans and the internet, you can wear a shirt that updates the Pirates logo to feature their best player:

Screen Shot 2015-09-24 at 10.08.10 PM

You can also agree with somebody while substituting a swear word with your team’s nickname:

Screen Shot 2015-09-24 at 10.14.49 PM

You can celebrate the Pirates’ third straight (!) return to fall baseball with this awesome t-shirt:

Screen Shot 2015-09-24 at 10.29.44 PM

And, of course, you can use it to remind everyone to….

Screen Shot 2015-09-24 at 10.19.50 PM

Toronto Blue Jays:

First off, “ShinyPliers” brings us this Native American (or, as the Canadians say, “First Nation”) redesign of the Blue Jays logo:

Screen Shot 2015-09-24 at 10.34.55 PM

Then, “Sportsmash” brings us this tribute to all three of Toronto’s major sports teams (apologies to the Argos, I guess):

Screen Shot 2015-09-24 at 10.39.07 PM

“OhioApparel” allows you to hail Josh Donaldson, the Bringer of Rain:

Screen Shot 2015-09-24 at 10.45.23 PM

Here’s what the Blue Jays logo would look like if it was realistic:

Screen Shot 2015-10-03 at 12.31.39 PM

 

And, finally, pay tribute to Canada and baseball with this hilariously computer generated shirt:

Screen Shot 2015-09-24 at 10.52.06 PM

It’s so… procedural… but it gets the point across that you are a fan of Canadian baseball.

Or something like that.

New York Yankees

Most Yankee fans like to cut to the chase with in-your-face shirts about their dominance. Like this one by “JayJaxon”:

Screen Shot 2015-09-24 at 11.02.19 PM

Others might have more of a sense of humor, like those who would be wearing this shirt from “joebugdud”:

Screen Shot 2015-09-24 at 11.07.10 PM

Respect the wisdom of George Herman Ruth, AKA Babe Ruth:

Screen Shot 2015-09-24 at 11.13.21 PM

This is neither a T-shirt nor unofficial, but it must be included somewhere: You can buy a hand-puppet of Alex Rodriguez:

Screen Shot 2015-09-24 at 11.20.19 PM

A nickname t-shirt….

Screen Shot 2015-09-24 at 11.29.35 PM

…and, finally, a t-shirt to honor Mr. October:

Screen Shot 2015-09-24 at 11.37.48 PM

Los Angeles Dodgers:

Vin Scully’s retirement may be near, but “Eadingtonanne” will immortalize his introduction forever:

Screen Shot 2015-09-25 at 11.49.03 AM

Meanwhile, for those in denial, “Spectator_Designs” has this shirt:

Screen Shot 2015-09-25 at 12.08.10 PM

“Morphingalpha” pays tribute to the retired numbers of the Dodgers with this shirt:

Screen Shot 2015-09-25 at 11.52.32 AM

“ADB” asks a question connected to one of LA’s most famous owners:

Screen Shot 2015-09-25 at 11.59.20 AM

Here’s a T-Shirt for any Tommy Lasorda fans:

Screen Shot 2015-09-25 at 12.01.48 PM

Interestingly, there are some Dodgers shirts still on sale from the time when the team was having financial troubles under the McCourts. How times have changed.

Chicago Cubs:

The Cubbies have a ton of shirts, which isn’t that surprising. Although, man, everybody is going to look dumb if they get knocked out in the Wild Card game. Anyway, for this section, JUST CLICK A SCREENSHOT to go to the store page for them (except when noted- Amazon doesn’t let me link straight through pictures):

Ah, the Cubs-Cardinals rivalry. Anyway, this above is available here.

Screen Shot 2015-09-25 at 12.45.52 PM

Screen Shot 2015-09-25 at 12.51.47 PM

Yeah, a lot of Cubs shirts.

Texas Rangers:

The Rangers don’t have as many T-Shirts around. But there are a few. For example, here’s a pixelized tribute to their mascot, the Rangers Captain:

Screen Shot 2015-10-03 at 12.17.23 PM

And here’s one paying tribute to Nolan Ryan:

Screen Shot 2015-10-03 at 12.19.42 PM

And, finally, here’s a generic one to honor Texas baseball in general:

Screen Shot 2015-10-03 at 12.24.49 PM

Houston Astros:

Finally, the Houston Astros.

First off, you can pay tribute to Dallas Keuchel‘s luxurious beard:

Screen Shot 2015-10-04 at 11.36.05 PM

Or you can make fun of yourselves:

Screen Shot 2015-10-04 at 11.37.21 PM

You can buy this “sportsmash” of the Astros and Texans:

Screen Shot 2015-10-04 at 11.44.28 PM

There is also this rather inexplicable t-shirt that is Belle from Beauty and The Beast wearing Astros garb, because… I have no idea. But it exists:

Screen Shot 2015-10-04 at 11.47.42 PM

Finally, here’s a Houston-themed tribute T-shirt to Nolan Ryan:

Screen Shot 2015-10-04 at 11.50.14 PM

So, there you go. You now know how you can get all unofficially t-shirted for October.

You are welcome!
