THIS SHIRT IS SOLD OUT – NO REPRINTS

Need to know more? We took a deep dive into the history of the organization to keep the legacy alive.
While tumbling through history, Justin Skaggs found a simple and clean logo used by the Syracuse Stingers at the time and it made for a great print. Not keeping the goods to himself, Skaggs is making 30 shirts for the world to get hands on.

Who were the Syracuse Stingers?
Only lasting one season of play in the original NLL, the Syracuse Stingers had an exciting start in 1974 only to take a bumpy ride to a rough ending. Excitement around the Stingers instantly surged after the league’s initial player draft, selecting one of the most electrifying rosters at the time, featuring all-time legends like Gaylord Powless, Johnny Mouradian, Terry Sanderson, Travis Cook, Bob “Buff” McCready and the greatest living lacrosse stick maker Alf Jacques.
