By the late 1930s, the Dodgers had earned the reputation of loveable losers. One day in 1939, sports cartoonist Willard Mullin the New York World Telegram asked a cab driver how the Dodgers were doing. The cabbie replied, “Dem Bums are bums.” The encounter gave Mullin an idea, and he soon developed a cartoon character, the “Brooklyn Bum,” to symbolize the team. Fans and newspapers alike, mimicking a Brooklyn accent, often referred to the team as “Dem Bums.”
Our Brooklyn Bums 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.
