I’ve been very naughty recently and went for a look around ebay, this normally isn’t a bad thing but I’ve been trying to save money for a small trip recently, anyway I came across a Sonic 2 Baseball Jacket, going cheap as well. I’ve previously tried to get one of these but when the bidding reached the £200 mark I thought it might be a good time to stop, and look at it this way, I’d made the seller very happy, and pissed off the winning bidder by doubling the price. I think I’m getting sidetracked again… so how’s about some pictures?

Originally produced way back in 1992 in the UK as part of the promotion for Sonic 2 these jackets have become one of the more sought after pieces of Sonic merch.

The jacket features white leather sleeves, snaps on the front, and patches on the sleeves of Tails, ‘Proffessor’ Robotnik and the SEGA logo.

Overall I’m very happy with this buy, especially considering the price and it actually fits! The question is, will I ever actually wear it in public? Would you?

YES. YES I’D WEAR IT IN PUBLIC.

Damn Vger, I want one of those! Best I can do is do a custom job on my own jacket D:

I’ve been after one for years too, back in 1992 you could order them and a whole other bunch of neat and official Sonic gear from an Australia SEGA membership catalogue. You’ll most likely compete with me whenever one shows up on eBay 😛
What really confuses people are the sizes.. S,M,L,XL are the smallest S,M,L,XL’s you can get while current owners claim they’re bigger than they appear.
Judging from the position of the logo on the back, it’s either a Large or X-Large.

I actually have one of these that ive never worn, even as a 11 year old back in 1992 when i was given this i thought it would be worth putting in a suitcase until i was older…. do they REALLy go for £200? i think mines a child size so am assuming it would be a little less… oh just read the £35 comment… damn you! 🙁

Actually they do sometimes go that high, it all depends on how much the people bidding want it, I actually sold this on a while ago it ended up going for far more than I paid for it.
