Launching to great fanfare in 1995, the San Francisco Spiders only lasted one year, folding shortly after a season of lackluster ticket sales and shortsighted front office decisions. But they did everything else right, signing an all-star player, ponying up for a cup-winning coach who led the team to a miracle playoff berth, and most importantly, reminding San Francisco what a great game hockey is. The mascot is something else they totally nailed — a grimacing red spider clutching a yellow hockey stick, looking like he’s ready to bash the windshield of a pest control van. It’s an example of glorious mascot work that still holds up decades later. Sadly, hockey never returned to San Francisco, but the Spiders still hold a place in the hearts of many Bay Area denizens.
Like all our designs, this one is treated with our signature ‘relic-ing’ process which includes our own secret recipe of hand-painted chipping, cracking, fading, and just the right touch of yellowing to ensure that it looks the part of a true vintage imprint.** We lay these works of art down on premium Bella+Canvas 3001 Unisex Jersey Short Sleeve Tees, one of the softest, best-wearing t-shirts available today, via state of the art direct to garment (DTG) printing which allows us to create a vintage effect that simply can’t be accomplished with other printing methods. In short, these shirts are everything you’ve dreamed of and more – it feels soft and lightweight with just the right amount of stretch making it comfortable and flattering for both men and women.
Not sure what size is your best fit? We recommend taking one of your current t-shirts, laying it flat and measuring it. The measurements in the chart below are taken with the shirt laying on a flat surface. To get the length, measure from the high shoulder point down to the bottom of the shirt. To get the width, measure approximately 1-inch below the armhole, across the chest, from seam to seam. While our tees are all made using premium, pre-shrunk, ring-spun cotton, there can be some shrinkage depending on your personal wash and dry cycles. With that said, if you’re on the fence, we always suggest going up a size.
All sizes are provided in inches!
