In case you didn't know, DiamondCentric is a project Parker Hageman has been working on for awhile and I jumped on board about a month ago. Originally just a baseball-focused apparel company, we've been trying to expand into other Minnesota sports.
I wanted to get some feedback from the TD folks. What do you think of the designs? Is there anything in particular you'd like to see from DiamondCentric? We have a few baseball, football, and basketball offerings at this point... We have some good ideas for hockey as well, but thanks to the NHL lockout, those are mostly on hold for the time being (sigh, NHL owners). In January, we'll be starting up production on a couple more Twins shirts, as well (we're hoping to attend TwinsFest).
Just curious what some of you think of the stuff we're producing.
Here's the site:

Are these available now for purchase? Christmas is coming! I want a 'Killer' shirt ... my baseball hero growing up.

One of the comical things about entering this project was my sudden realization that, outside of the Twins, memorable sports moments in Minnesota are almost universally linked to spectacular failure. It makes designing a "timeless" shirt that people will buy for years rather difficult.

Be sure to use the "TwinsDaily" code, everybody. It saves you five bucks on any order over $30.

This is great ... thanks ... never know what to get my nephews ... girls are so much easier to shop for! (Although there are some there I'd get for my nieces, too!)

Love the DC designs, my Thome is my Homey shirt is almost worn out (). The Walks will Haunt is next, awesome! Everyone should grab a "Plouffe There it is" shirt for $10, just in case.
Keep more Twins stuff coming, you'd think a Scott Diamond one would be a natural.
In keeping with the "spectacular failure theme, how about some Gopher football and basketball designs? Jerry and Tubby are a treasure trove of material for slogans and the time is right to immortalize A.J. Barker with a limited run special.

We could bring back more European "fans" to the website with "Hala Twins" or "Hala T-Wolves" shirts.

As for Scott Diamond, if he starts out strong in 2013, I think a design is in order for the guy. Right now, I think both Parker and I are a little skeptical of his performance in the coming season.

I saw this a week ago and I have about 5-6 to order for Christmas and myself.
My favorites are the 'original lake state' and 'game 6 (the red)'. My mom is definitely getting the killer shirt. I also really like the All Day design but I've mostly lost interest in the Vikings.
Frankkkkkkkie is also a really well done shirt. I might order one for $5 but I have a beef with him.

I would like Darko and Punto throwback shirts please. Those would really sell.

I like the Lakeshow design but wish it didn't have that faded vintage look.

I really think there should be a hall of shame one featuring: Tony Bautista, Juan Castro, Livan Hernandez, Sidney Ponson, Brett Boone, and Nishioka.
