UCLA Trademarks & Licensing Collaborates with UCLA Basketball Legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Mitchell & Ness to Debut T-shirt Collection

Abdul-Jabbar will be on campus to sign shirts from the collection

 

Westwood, Calif. – Jan. 08, 2020 – Want to meet a UCLA legend and check out an exciting new collaboration? If so, you’re in luck – a new t-shirt collection honoring superstar Kareem Abdul-Jabbar officially launches at the UCLA Store on Jan. 11, the same day the Bruins take on crosstown rival, USC, at Pauley Pavilion. The collection includes five total designs, including one Limited-Edition style of only 100 shirts, in celebration of UCLA’s Centennial Year.

Before the game tips off at 7 p.m. on Jan. 11, Abdul-Jabbar will also be at the UCLA Store from 5-6 p.m., signing autographs for fans.

The Limited-Edition t-shirt will feature the image of Abdul-Jabbar, captured by George Mikan’s son, Larry Mikan – in his junior year at UCLA where he is elevated near the rim of the basketball hoop, in the act of blocking a shot – against St. Louis. This famous photo will also be on the cover of the program book from the Bruins’ clash with the Trojans. The t-shirt will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis and exclusively at the UCLA store, while the other four designs will be available in-store and online. This collection marks the first officially licensed UCLA t-shirt collection that honors Abdul-Jabbar and his legacy.

“I’m excited to be teaming up with Mitchell & Ness to celebrate my basketball career and to honor the great education — on and off the court — I received at UCLA,” said Abdul-Jabbar, 3X-NCAA Champion.
