It's a great day to be a Chicago Cubs fan. Not only is it 'Opening Day 2.0' with Wrigley Field capacity expanding to 100% for a beautiful Friday 1:20 PM start time, but a beloved merchandise producer and social media presence also made a huge stride in further connecting with the North Side faithful. Obvious Shirts took to Twitter this morning to announce the opening of a retail store in Wrigleyville in July 2021.
Obvious Shirts has embedded itself into Chicago sports culture, especially with the Cubs and Cubs fans. In addition to producing ultra-catchy slogans for Chicagoans to wear across their chests, they have partnered with several current Cubs players to collaborate on t-shirts.
Most recently, Cubs broadcaster Boog Sciambi teamed up with Obvious Shirts for MLB’s inaugural ALS Day to create a shirt with proceeds going to Project Main Street, which helps families dealing with the financial costs of dealing with ALS.
Online sales propelled Obvious Shirts to become a household name among Chicago sports fans, and a physical location will only add to the brand's popularity and growth. Congratulations to Obvious Shirts from all of us here at On Tap Sports Net! You can count on seeing the Cubs On Tap crew frequenting the store as soon as it opens.
