SEATTLE – Professional Bowlers Association fans can now own the same jerseys worn by PBA Tour competitors during the 2011-12 season.
Thanks to an agreement with Gemini Custom Apparel, authentic jerseys custom-designed for all 2011-12 PBA Tour exempt players, including manufacturers’ identification for bowling ball manufacturers associated with each player (Brunswick, DV8, Ebonite, Columbia 300, Hammer, Track, Storm, Roto Grip, 900 Global and MOTIV), are now available on the g2gemini.com website (http://g2gemini.com/pba-replica-jerseys/) .
Gemini Custom Apparel, a leading designer and manufacturer of custom performance apparel, introduced the first line of dye-sublimated competition jerseys for the 2008-09 PBA Tour season. The unique apparel, which provides distinctive marketing opportunities for corporate sponsors as well as players, has become a fixture in professional fishing, auto racing, shooting sports and dart competition among others.
“Not only can you strive to bowl like one of the greats, but now you can look like them, too,” said Gemini Custom Apparel Executive Vice President Brad Raymond. “We are very excited here at Gemini to be able to offer the PBA Player Replica jerseys to the general public. We’ve been asked for years when these would be made available and now all of the pieces are in place.
“These jerseys aren’t just for the pros any longer. We hope this program will get amateur bowlers, collegiate or high schoolers or even the local league bowlers to give them a try and see why G2 is the brand to wear.”
“The PBA gave professional bowling a fresh overall look beginning in 2008, due largely to these great jerseys,” said PBA Commissioner Tom Clark. “Over the past three seasons, the presence of the Gemini jersey program has provided the PBA’s corporate sponsors and our players with significantly greater exposure on television and in the on-site competition arena.
“Now that same kind of exposure is available to PBA fans, who have a great new way to identify with their bowling heroes.”
The PBA Tour jerseys are available in assorted sizes and styles for $94.95 each. Bowlers also can order their own custom or semi-custom jersey designs for their teams, or as individuals, for prices as low as $27.
