With news that advertising and sponsorship logos may be making their way to NHL jerseys, we asked our team of writers to create some mock-ups of new Leafs jerseys. Please note that all of these mock ups are very well thought out and are highly likely to become reality.
Since the Leafs will take full advantage of the opportunity to print money and have companies tripping over themselves to get on their jersey, I couldn’t narrow it down to just one.
The Leafs will want to respect local grassroots businesses, so respected business owners like the Ford Family and Frank D’Angelo will have their logos prominently featured on the shoulders.
The Leafs will then take advantage of deep pockets. Halliburton will get the lower stripe, and because of the cost involved on being featured on the logo, only Biffco, from alternate timeline 1985 can afford to be on the Leaf.
In contrast to the Leafs, it is likely the Panthers jersey will be used as an alternative to the Pennysaver.
Editor’s Note: When I asked Bobby if he’d be sending along a description to go with his jersey, he said “I don’t think it needs one lol.” He isn’t wrong.
I’m a big fan of supporting local businesses, and I think this is a perfect opportunity for the Toronto Maple Leafs to join forces with one of the city’s most iconic and most successful brands…
