We’re excited to team up with The Players Alliance – the non-profit founded by more than 100 Black professional baseball players to create increased opportunities for the Black community in the game of baseball.
The shirts and the Organization were unveiled on MLB Network with Harold Reynolds last week.
"Be the Change" and get your shirt now and support the Players Alliance.
Ever since we were little kids we would always look forward to coloring contests around town. The GV Team has been wanting to do create one for a while now and we thought what better time than now. We were absolutely blown away by the response and all the submissions as well as votes. We had over 5,000 downloads. Even more than that, it was so amazing to hear how much fun everyone had and how we were able to give everyone something to pass the time, and look forward to.
Here was our top 5 submissions from our kids and adults categories.
Thanks again for all the entries we had so much fun going through them all. Stay tuned for another contest in the next few weeks!
What an amazing response to our Kobe tribute shirts. We just want to say thank you to all those who have purchased and therefore donated. We raised over 40k in the first 24 hours and the orders have kept coming in. It's neat to see the orders but now seeing everyone send in their pictures wearing the shirts and telling us how much the shirts mean to them is just overwhelming. Kobe was one of our favorites and we couldn't be happier to create something to pay tribute to such a legend. We can't wait to share how much we raise. Our Goal is to reach 81k for Kobe!
Basketball Teams from all over the Country have been paying tribute wearing our shirts. Here's a High School team from Maryland.
Even TNT's NBA reporter Allie Laforce has worn the shirt on the air.
It has been a wild and exciting week for us at GV. Ever since the launch of our new Pittsburgh Started It shirt last Wednesday we have been getting orders by the second. It quickly became the hottest and most wanted shirt in Cleveland. On Friday night photographs leaked of Cleveland Browns Head Coach Freddie Kitchens wearing the shirt out in public. The photos reposted by us quickly went viral and overnight began to pick up even more steam. On Saturday virtually every single National Media Outlet featured the story. From ESPN, to CNN, to Yahoo, to Barstool. We have been getting requests all day long leading up to Sundays highly anticipated rematch between the Browns and Steelers. Here's a few of the photos and media outlets who picked up the story.
If you ask us Freddie has handled the whole incident extremely well. He took blame what happened and called out his players. Something the Steelers and Mike Tomlin refused to do.
