The jacket, made famous in the 1980's, is set to debut this Fall during back-to-school season and will be led by marketing and advertising efforts from Iconix Brand Group, owner of the Starter brand, and Carl Banks, NY Giants legend and President of G-III Sports (a division of G-III Apparel Group).
On July 13, 2013 at the exclusive MLB Fan Cave in New York City, 150 limited edition MLB All-Star jackets will be gifted at a private, invite-only event for media, athletes and celebrities along with industry executives and tastemakers.
"Baseball and Starter go hand-in-hand, it's the ultimate expression of team pride," says Carl Banks. "Although the satin jacket hasn't been produced for over a decade, it's still worn at ballparks across the country to this day. We look forward to reintroducing the iconic Starter satin jacket for baseball fans of all generations."
"As a retro look, the Starter jacket is one of the more iconic items in fashionable sportswear and we are excited to work with G-III Apparel Group and Iconix to revive this classic look," says Howard Smith, Senior Vice President, Licensing, Major League Baseball. "We expect fans to enthusiastically support this relaunch this fall."
