The Blot loves indie clothing brands, and I’m always on the lookout for the next cool t-shirt to add to my closet. When I saw these retro NFL inspired designs by 8 Bit Apparel I knew I had to have one! While I’m a sucker for all 8-bit designs (they take me back to my childhood spent mashing the A and B buttons on my Nintendo controller), I especially love these t-shirts by 8 Bit Apparel. Why? Because they pay tribute to the greatest sports game on the NES, Tecmo Super Bowl!
Anyone who has ever played Tecmo Super Bowl knows the best player in the game was the unstoppable Bo Jackson. My group of friends had to eventually outlaw playing with the Oakland Raiders because anyone who played with Bo Jackson was always going to win. You can now honor Bo’s dominance in Tecmo Super Bowl with this killer “Can’t Stop 34” t-shirt from 8 Bit Apparel! Along with the Bo Jackson design, 8 Bit Apparel also has a cool “I [Ran] ________” t-shirt featuring different cities and their franchise’s most prolific running backs, and these sweet 8-bit NFL helmet logo tees in a variety of teams and colors.
This Columbus, Ohio based clothing brand has done a really great job giving retro graphics a modern feel with these 8-bit designs, and I’ve got a feeling lots of NFL and Nintendo fans are going to want to snag one of these 8 Bit Apparel t-shirts. You can pick up all of the designs you see here and more from the 8 Bit Apparel online store for $27 each. And don’t worry, if you don’t see your favorite team represented in the collection, new designs are being added all the time!
