I thought I saw a posting on this however I couldn't find it....

Will the SOX offer an official "World Series Championship" patch? I just bought the World Series patch and plan to have it sewn on my Dugout jacket, however I was wondering if there would be a patch indicating they won the series.

I havent heard anything yet. They probably havent decided yet, it has only been 9 days.
I don't know for sure that they would do it. Not all teams do. The Red Sox didn't last year. The Angels didn't in 03. However, as someone mentioned earlier today, the Sox were the first team to wear a commemerative patch on their unis. In 07, they wore 1906 World Champions patches on their road jerseys. I have a feeling Brooks and company will be able to whip up a great patch to keep the tradition alive.

Thats because the Angels didn't win in '03. :cool:

But I say go for it, the Cubs are already planning their 100th Anniversary patch.

OK, you "corrected" me, but I wont be too much of an ass...
You might want to answer these questions to yourself:

What are we talking about?
What year did we win the title?
What year did the Angels win the title? and subsequently, what was the next year?

The Angels won in 2002, and would have worn a commemerative championship patch in 2003 if they chose to do so. If the Sox wear the patch, it will be next year, in 2006.

I saw jerseys at Sports AUthority with the regular WS05 patch with the word ChAMPIONS in blue underneat it. Not sure if this official but it looked pretty cool.

Well I feel real dumb right now, sorry about that, I wasn't trying to be an ass. Sorry if you may have taken it the wrong way. But all you really had to do was point it out and not make me look like a complete idiot.

Looks like Boston fans didn't quite like the "official" version, and designed their own on the right.

These two are offered through the official MLB site. I am certain the White Sox patch will be available shortly. I am VERY interested - ask anyone who's seen my jersey :rolleyes:.

What do you mean "Boston FANS" designed the patch? The logo on the left is not a patch, it was never actually worn by the Red Sox. It looks like a logo that would appear on championship apparel that came out right after the win.
As for the patch on the right, the Red Sox actually did wear that... once. I discussed that in another thread, but forgot to include it here. The Red Sox wore that patch on opening day only, and it was attached to special jerseys. The jerseys looked like their normal home jerseys, except there was a gold outline around the blue outline on the numbers and lettering. That patch never appeared on the regular jerseys - home, road, and alternate. If the Sox design a jersey patch like that, Im sure they will wear it on their normal jerseys, not just once on a special jersey.

Look, BOTH are patches being sold on the MLB site, okay? I only "speculate" that the patch on the right was MLB's design, and the BoSox mgmt. frowned on it - it does suck.

Whatever the case may be, two BoSox patches ARE out there - so we will be getting ours sooner or later.

Yeah, I checked on MLB.com. I couldn't find a picture of the gold-outlined jerseys from opening day, but that patch was attached to them. MLB will sell anything that will make them money. Bud Selig would sell a home-made porno video of himself to FOX if they paid him $60mil to air it in prime time. Im sure they will make some kind of patch with the 05 world series logo that says "champions" on it, but that doesn't mean the Sox will wear one on their sleeves. If the Sox do wear a sleeve patch, it will not be a generic version like the patch on the left. They will design a very nice patch. I still think that the Sox will wear some kind of patch, seeing as they pioneered it, but we probably wont find out until February.

If I had to design a patch for the Sox, and btw, the Sox haven't commissioned me to do so yet, it would go as follows. The official team font, with "Chicago" on top of "White Sox", with the city skyline above it, in a semi circle. Then put either the regular logo, the sock logo, or preferably the FLYING SOCK LOGO on top of the skyline. Underneath the words White Sox, it would say CHAMPIONS in large bold letters, with the words "2005 World Series" wrapping around the circle. It is hard to visualize, Im sure, but it looks really good in my head.

Edit: Here is a real quick version of the patch. I couldn't find a drawing of the skyline, so I had to mess with a photo. Either way, you get the idea. Now that I have seen the patch, I am fully confident that the one the Sox make will blow this out of the water.:D:

National Emblem is the company that makes licensed patches as well as the patches teams wear on their jerseys. There will be a Sox patch available soon, I am sure.

Here is a Sox/Comiskey Park patch that is available now..

That is nice, but I can garauntee the Sox wont be wearing that patch next year. That is like the first Red Sox patch that was posted. Both were the championship logos from the teams' official websites, and both feature the official world series logo of that year. The Sox will likely design a different patch for next season, but this is just a nice patch to put on a sweatshirt or backpack or something. This is a generic logo. Like the official lockerroom shirts and hats, this patch would look the same whether there was the Sox logo, an A, a star, or a cardinal on top of it.

I just found an article about the Marlins' World Champs patch in 04. Apparently, they were the first team since the 1984 Orioles (:angry:) to put a patch on their uniforms commemerating a world championship the previous year. I don't know if it meant they were first team to have a patch since then, or the first to have it on all of their uniforms. Not that this changes the Sox' plan.

Guess the key here is to wait it out to see if anything becomes the "official" patch before rushing out and sewing it to my jersey.

Thanks for the replies. I don't anticipate the players to actually wear a patch next season, however I was hoping there would be an "Official" patch (Whatever that means) that we fans can sew onto our favorite jackets, jerseys, etc.

Looking closer at my dugout jacket from this season, I don't think I will be able to sew any patch on the sleeve due to the seams that run up and down the arms. I love the SOX diamond on the lower left sleeve which is one of the primary reasons I bought the jacket. I was hoping to sew the patch onto the upper right sleeve, however as mentioned the seems are to close and I don't think it would be a good idea to try and sew the patch over them. I don't want to &$&! up a nice jacket. However, I might go out and get the black alternate jersey and sew it on that.

I'd say just wait until April rolls around....you'll have all the answers by then! I do hope they wear some type of patch commemorating the 2005 season. They have to.

I also bought a World Series patch for my dugout jacket and as soon as I can get to Grandstand, am going to have them sew it on the left arm for me. :smile:

I already got the sweatshirt thing...bought if from mlb.com. I saw them at Grandstand as well. It is nice.
I found the WS05 patch on ebay from $9.00. I don't know what they're planning on doing for next year...but the way I look at it...I'm going to put the WS05 patch on my jersey as that was the patch/jersey combination that the White Sox wore when they become World Series champs!:bandance:

BTW...I asked at Grandstand about getting the patch sewn on and she told me that they're only now getting around to that sort of thing. With the huge crowds they've had, she said it would be at least 3 wks until you'd get your jesrsey back.
I only wear my jerseys to games...so I figure there's plenty of time this offseason to get it done.

Nice, but I will wait out whatever the Sox decide to put on their jerseys - if anything. I have to agree about the "official" one right now - too generic, but hey, it does get to the point :rolleyes:.

Sorry about the wait at Grandstand - but you really could take that to any sporting goods store - I think most will sew. Heck, take it to a local tailor or seemstress. HAS to beat 3 week wait :o:

I think that's just bad wording or a misunderstanding on the part of that website. I'd bet $100 that the White Sox will NOT be wearing that patch next year (or if they do, it'll be a one time thing like the Red Sox did last opening day).

I was at Grandstand on Tuesday, looking for the Bullpen Fleece with the "WS05 Champions" patch on it, but lo and behold, they were all sold out and not getting anymore in. However, I was talking to Stephanie (one of the daughters of the owner), who told me that the Sox will be sporting this patch next season!

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v521/Spooky3170/Championspatch.jpg

She did tell me, though, that Grandstand isn't sure if it's only going to be for Opening Night, the first week, all season, etc. Nonetheless, that's a pretty sweet looking piece to add to any piece of Sox apparel! I'm taking my new Bullpen Fleece and the patch there tomorrow to get it sewn on, and am also bringing my home white PK jersey with so they can put one on there, too! Gone will be the 2003 All-Star Game patch from the jersey, only to be replaced with the piece of greatness above! :D:

I honestly don't think there will be an official patch for this so to speak....

I can't recall any other team wearing a patch like that, it almost seems like rubbing it in...lol

I got the WS 05 Champions patch on my Konerko jersey, only for the fact it was the patch on the jersey during the series....and the little "champions" below it was a nice touch.

That being said, I also like that black & silver one from Grandstands....looks like I will have to take a ride down there and get one of those!!!

Will Grandstand sew on the patch? My friend bought me a Buerhle jersey for Christmas, but the place he bought it didn't have time to sew the patch on, so he bought me a patch too. I took it to Gunzo's by my house but they won't sew it on for legal reasons. I don't necessarily want to go all the way to Grandstand, so if anyone has another suggestion, I'd love to hear it.

Grandstand will sew it on for $8 and the estimate they gave me when I was there on Saturday for when it'd be done was two weeks.

And while I know you don't want to make the trip all the way down there twice, trust me- it's worth it. I bought my PK jersey in late 2002 at some hole in the wall (which closed its doors shortly after I bought the jersey) at a local mall and they did a lousy job with sewing stuff on. For example, when I picked the jersey up, the 14 that's on the front of the jersey was sewn onto the right sleeve!!! :?: I complained and they removed it (at no charge) and put it where it belongs, but not without leaving behind a faint imprint of the 14's stitching on the sleeve! The Comiskey Park patch on the left sleeve isn't centered, either, which I didn't notice until they pointed it out to me at Grandstand on Saturday! And when the hole in the wall sewed the All-Star Game patch on, the sleeve wasn't pulled straight and it's rippled underneath the patch! :angry: Take it from me, have the work done at Grandstand- the quality will be impeccable!

Take it from Jen, she's right. I had Grandstand customize my genuine home World Series jersey with the number 13 on it and the name "Ozzie" on the back (MLB could not deviate from "Guillen" because of licensing). They did a great job. I'll be wearing it at the park this summer, I'm in section 112.:smile:

Thanks, for the info. I'll probably end up taking it to Grandstand. My husband and I were there this past Saturday exchanging a fleece I bought for my Mom from them online. It was the first time we'd been in there. Talk about an amazing store! I don't know if I should take my husband with me again. I was afraid he'd buy one of everything!

If all you want is a patch sewed on existing stuff, look for an atheltic store in your area - chances are they can do a pretty good job. Make sure it's an established store however - Jen found out the hard way.

In NW Indiana, Mike's Sporting Goods is one of the largest and best. They sewed all the patches on my shirt I wore to death during the run. Great work, and only $4 per patch. Best thing - I got it back within three days.

BUT - if you want to start from scratch, with name and numbers, DEFINITELY go to GRANDSTAND!!! Heck, you'd have no problem going down there for a game - might as well do the same for a much heavier investment :cool:.

Mine needs to be washed for the first time. I just forked $200 for it and I want to make sure it doesn't get ruined. Is there a special way of washing it? Can it be washed with the whites with no problem, provided no bleach is used of course?

I always wash mine separately from everything else and ONLY put detergent in the washing machine- NO fabric softener. Just follow the instructions on the tag inside and it'll come out fine. :cool: I got what looked to be a case of beer & champagne out of mine from being at Puffers when they won the World Series, so anything you spill on it should come out.

That's why I originally went to Gunzo's. They've been around for as long as I can remember. They are basically a hockey store but they do have some other sports items. My husband got his Hawks jersey customized there.

They originally said they could sew on the patch but then called last night and said they can't. The reason they gave it some language on the packaging the patch came on basically saying it's illegal without the written consent of MLB. I take it no one else has run into the same thing. I guess Gunzo's is just covering themselves.

Sorry about the rant...

When I had a patch sewn on at Grandstand last year, I was told that all official MLB patches have the hard plastic backing on them simply to keep people from sewing them on themselves. This forces you to take the patch to an MLB retailer to have done since the plastic won't come off without special chemical treatment.

I home dry clean (dryel) my jerseys. I especially recommend this for replica football jerseys.

I wash my White Sox jerseys in water purified by the shower that Bill Veeck put in the bleachers while using soap so gentle a baby could swim in it without harm using hands as I gently squeeze the water through every fiber of the garment. I then dry them in a room that is sometimes confused for a clean room where they assemble microprocessors for computers.

During the 24 hour period leading up to wearing a jersey to a game, I move it to a room were I play an endless loop tape of John Rooney's calls.

Good thing I'm not superstitious.

Can't be too careful with the babies.:cool:

Actually, cold water, detergent, no softener or bleach. Hang to dry (they dry in a manner of minutes).

When I had a patch sewn on at Grandstand last year, I was told that all official MLB patches have the hard plastic backing on them simply to keep people from sewing them on themselves. This forces you to take the patch to an MLB retailer to have done since the plastic won't come off without special chemical treatment.

There is no 'special chemical treatment'. That's just MLB trying to scare you not to mess with it so that they and their business partners can make more money. You can take the hard plastic backing off yourself with an iron. Just iron the back side and the plastic will warm up and you can easily peel it off. Just go slow and take your time. I've done it numerous times with no problems.

Go Sox in '06!!!

Hm, did not know that. I took mine to a seamstress to have it sewed on my jersey since they had to use a leather needle to get through that backing :angry:

Personally I always liked Batman's suggestion. So much so that it's from March 2005 and hasn't been forgotten!

I like the gold trimmed Red Sox jersey. If we win the World Series, we should do the same thing, only wear it all year--with the patch--and rub it in everyone's faces.

And when we play the cubs in wrigley, we should wear gold hats and jerseys with a big image of the World Series trophy on the sleeve. Maybe for that day we could change our team name to the Champions. :cool:

I saw the gold Red Sox jerseys for sale when I was in Boston this past summer, and they looked really good. I was so jealous of ALL those Red Sox fans wearing all their championship gear last summer. I am SO looking forward to heading up there for my annual trip! I think I will only pack White Sox shirts....I'll probably wear one to my neice's wedding up there, too!:D:
