1972 New England Whalers Tee
The famed Whalers franchise was created in November 1971 when the World Hockey Association awarded a franchise to an ownership group in Boston. Bolstered by a mostly American roster (very unusual for that era), the Whalers cruised to a WHA championship in their first season.
Despite their success, the team was fourth priority at their home Boston Garden behind the NHL Bruins, NBA Celtics and even the AHL Braves. Fed up with the treatment, the owners decided to move the team to Hartford (who just opened up a brand new Civic Center) becoming the Hartford Whalers.
Our signature tee was crafted with the intention of being the softest shirt in your lineup. Made with a blend of fabrics including high quality combed and ring spun cotton, our tee is cut for a modern fit and printed with water-based inks that actually blend into the fabrics giving it more character with every wash.
