Can you feel it? The air is changing, which means it’s football season. That’s right, every year we Lions fans gear up to watch our favorite NFL team take the field. But this year, things are different. And because of that, we have to find you the best Detroit Lions gear to get you ready for the season.

You’ve probably heard the buzz about this season. After finishing last season 9-8, and winning 8 of their last 10 games, the expectations are high. General Manager Brad Holms and Head Coach Dan Campbell have continued their philosophy of grit, hard work, and accountability, and have built a Lions team that has the eyes of the NFL upon it. The roaster is starting to feel stacked and fired up. With a combination of the end of last season’s success, Aaron Rodgers’s move to the Jets, and the number of returning and new faces this team is currently looking like an NFC North favorite.

And here’s the thing, we all know The Detroit Lions’ history. But year, after year we flock to Ford Field with hope in our hearts. Again, this year is different. Earlier this month, Ford Field announced that this year season tickets for the team sold out! That’s a first for the team since they’ve been at Ford Field. If that doesn’t tell you just how excited Detroit is about this season, I don’t know what else will.

The fact is we are so ready for the regular season to start we can hardly stand it. And because there are so many of you flocking to Ford Field this year to watch them play, we’ve put together this list of Detroit Lions gear.

  • Barry Sanders Detroit Lions Mitchell & Ness 1996 Split Legacy Replica Jersey

    Barry Sanders is one of those names that no matter who you’re talking to you know they know the legend. And with all the cool throwback jerseys other franchises have started throwing out there, it got me looking for similar for us Lions fans. Not only would repping a Barry Sanders jersey be a totally awesome thing during Lions game days, but this 1996 silver and blue split replica jersey is sick. It’s got a very different vibe from the current uniforms, but if you like to have something unique in the stands, this is your jersey.

  • Detroit Lions New Era 2023 Sideline Historic Hat

    Speaking of throwback, how about this vintage Lions logo hat? This logo, which is straight from the design of the 1960s Detroit Lions, is one of the more unique ones of the bunch. When it comes to me, I have a lot of Lions hats, but when I’m looking for new merch I don’t want the same thing over and over again. This one is definitely a brand new vibe that we can all enjoy.
