Want to own a piece of Union history while supporting a good cause? Here's your chance.
Prior to the finalization of Philadelphia's jersey-front sponsorship with Bimbo Bakeries USA, 30 sample jerseys were created with the Bimbo bear included. The bear was removed in the final version, leaving the 30 prototypes as nothing more than limited edition collector's items.
The 30 authentic jerseys are now available on a first-come first-serve basis for $200 apiece, with all proceeds benefitting the Philadelphia Union Foundation and the American Heart Association.
To secure one of the 30 jerseys, email firstname.lastname@example.org with subject line "Bimbo Bear Jersey" and the quantity you would like. Please also note your size, as there are only 15 large and 15 XL available. We will reply with confirmation that you are among the first 30 to respond and ask for a check payable to Philadelphia Union Foundation. Orders received by December 16 will be processed in time for receipt by December 25.
