Headed to Pasadena on January 4 to support the Trojans? Or maybe just your local sports bar?
Now is the time to place your orders for Trojan merchandise, to make sure you’re fully decked out for the big game. And because we know that SC gear is flying off the shelves, and that perfect shirt or hat may be tough to find, TrojanWire has combed the Web to find the very best available options for your Rose Bowl 2006 attire.
So without further ado, we’re proud to give you our Rose Bowl Gift Guide ’06.
NOTE: All items marked with an asterisk are available from the TrojanWire Fan Shop–other items may be available via the USC Bookstore, eBay, or Amazon–in those cases, we cannot guarantee availability.
Reggie Bush Official Rose Bowl Jersey
These are not going to be easy to come by. But if you search eBay for Reggie Bush jersey (or just click here) you can turn up a few results that promise shipping that should put you in a jersey by gameday.
Marcus Allen 1980 Rose Bowl Jersey*
If you can’t come up on an official Reggie Bush jersey, this is the way to go. Considering that Marcus was the last SC tailback from San Diego to tear it up, and the jersey features a 1980 Rose Bowl patch, it makes a perfect throwback to sport at this year’s game–ideal for the fan who wants to show he’s been rooting for the Trojans for more than 2 years.
Matt Leinart Official Rose Bowl Jersey
With Reggie Bush’s No. 5 unquestionably the MUST-HAVE jersey of 2005, you can actually get your hands on a Matt Leinart official Rose Bowl jersey a bit easier (i.e. without having to cruise eBay). In this case, you can just head over to online sports store Eastbay, and grab a Leinart Rose Bowl ’06 jersey there.
