The Chicago Cubs are in 5th place. They’re 14 games below .500 (46-60). So where’s the silver lining in all this? SALES! Kohl’s is selling Cubs apparel for 60-80% off! Jerseys with current players names are 80% off and everything else is 60% off.
I scored an Andre Dawson t-shirt for $10 (retail $25). It’s an all-blue shirt with the standard Cubs logo on the front and Dawson’s name and number 8 on the back and a special Hall of Fame logo on the sleeve. I also got a Geovany Soto warm-up jersey for $13 (retail $65). See image below. Though my jersey is not a pull-over. It’s a full button-down. The numbers and name are screen-printed, not sewn. The logo on the front is sewn.
I’m not the world’s biggest Geovany Soto fan. But my brother Matt can attest to this; I am the world’s first Soto Cubs fan. We had bleacher seats for a 2006 game towards the end of the season. Soto was just called up. I cheered and cheered and cheered for Soto while the rest of the Cubs fans sat on their hands. So getting the Soto jersey was the natural choice.
Now, go get yourself an authentic Cubs jersey for 13 bucks.
