The ECHL’s Bakersfield Condors will do pretty much anything to gain publicity and are in the news more often than AHL hockey teams. The Condors are now the ECHL affiliate for the Edmonton Oilers and they now have new jerseys with metallic wings on the sleeves.
“We consider these to be the greatest jerseys in the world,” said Condors Team President Matthew Riley. “These are the most expensive game jerseys in the history of the ECHL and possibly all of hockey. It’s a new paradigm this season on the ice, and these jerseys are part of that. We think our fans, players, and feathered friends will welcome them with open wings.”
“As the authentic outfitter to the ECHL, CCM is proud to work with the member teams on their new uniform programs,” said Director of Softwoods Ross McCracken. “Working with the Bakersfield Condors allowed CCM to explore new areas of design and application of performance materials to help the Condors tell their brand story. The end result is a progressive uniform design that the players and many fans of the Condors will be very proud to wear.”
I doubt they are the most expensive jerseys in all of hockey, but there is no question they are the most expensive in the ECHL. Here are some more photos of the jerseys on Pinterest.
