New England Sports fans, more specifically Boston sports fans, are a special breed. Rabid for sports. Simply can’t get enough. I mean, there’s a reason that there are two sports talk radio stations in town. Many were born into generational fandom, with fathers, grandfathers, aunts, and uncles rooting for the same home team since they were kids. A true sports family, if you will. In some circles, you better be a throwback fan, or you’ll be labeled a “pink hat.” For those devotees, I put together this list of 5 Throwback Gifts for Boston Sports Fans. Hearty, loyal fans who have seen both the very bottom and tip top of the winning cycle but will never give up on their team. I would bet money that there are Patriots sweatshirts out there older than me.

A majority of the teams based in Boston embrace their history in the form of throwback logos and team colors. And, of course, the players that helped them get their name on the map. Names like Bledsoe, Orr, and Bird. Call me old (well, don’t really) but I actually love a throwback logo. Almost all of my team gear is retro-themed. I may or may not own one of the items below. There’s something so inclusive about being a fan of a sports team. I enjoy it when I throw on my Boston Bruins sweatshirt in the morning and random people will yell out “Go B’s!” Or mention how they think the team will play this season. Because we’re all on the same team.

As always, I could’ve given you dozens of options. But I love each of the 5 throwback gifts for Boston sports fans on this list and am confident their nostalgia will inspire you to start tackling that holiday gift list.  It’s never too early to get started on that shopping.

  • Vintage Hartford Whalers Cap

    If you’re from the Northeast, you’re likely aware of the cult following of The Hartford Whalers long after the franchise dissolved (now the Carolina Hurricanes). And you also probably run into people on the streets wearing their old logo. Loved so much that you can purchase gear again, like this ’47 Brand vintage clean up adjustable hat in Royal blue. Why not grab one for the New England based hockey lover on your gift list. Don’t chirp me on this one, just admit you love it.

  • Bobby Orr Throwback Player Jersey

    Can you even call yourself a Boston Bruins fan if you don’t revere the great Bobby Orr? No, the answer is no. This throwback hockey jersey from the 1971 – 72 season features authentic team colors and graphics and replicates what “Number Four” was wearing on the ice. This would score you points with any Boston Bruins fan on your holiday list.

  • Boston Celtics Throwback Swingman Jersey

    If there’s only a single name universally associated with The Boston Celtics, in my opinion, it’s Larry Bird. Sure, he went onto coach after his playing career but he will forever be engrained as one of the all time greats to wear green and white. Why not honor his legend with this sweet cream and green throwback jersey. Any true Celtics fan would be excited to open this up on Christmas morning.
