Orioles announce fan designed t-shirt contestEarlier this season, the Baltimore Orioles announced a unique giveaway in which they asked fans to design the t-shirt that will be handed out to the first 10,000 fans 15 and over on Thursday September 26 against the Blue Jays.

The O’s received over 500 t-shirt designs and have narrowed it down to the final three. Orioles fans can vote online once per day between now and Wednesday September 11 at 11:59 PM for their favorite shirt.

Let’s take a look at the finalists.

Hakuna Machado

Hakuna Machado - Orioles fan designed t-shirt contest
Now where have I seen this before? Oh yeah, on like 1,000 people every time I go to the Yard. Manny Machado even wore the original Hakuna Machado t-shirt in a MASN interview he did with Bryce Harper during the O’s-Nats series.


Shaving Cream Pie

Shaving Cream Pie Shirt - Orioles Fan Designed T-Shirt Contest
That’s pretty solid. I don’t know why, but I just assume the player being pied is Nate McLouth. Maybe it’s the eye brows. Who knows?

I dig the Orioles Magic shaving cream on the back too. This one gets my vote.

Buckle Back Up

Buckle Back Up - Orioles Fan Designed T-Shirt Contest
Last year the angry bird logo returned for the Orioles postseason run. This season, he’s donning a cape and a Superman inspired Orioles logo.

The Buckle Back Up shirt is my number two selection. It’s not bad, but that Shaving Cream Pie shirt is too cool.

Which shirt is your favorite?
