Sure, the NBA has all that official league merch, but what’s more Colorado than having and wearing one of Sun cartoonist Drew Litton’s signature pieces to mark the Nugget’s historic chapter in Centennial State sports history?
His latest drawing to chronicle state history comes as the Nuggets finally won their first NBA title in the franchise’s 47-year history in the league.
To commemorate the triumph, the Sun is doing a one-time run to print up T-shirts emblazoned with the winning cartoon that’s almost as much of an instant classic as the game itself.
If you’ve spent any time in Colorado, you know Drew is a legend who has been cartoon-chronicling our state for more than 40 years — the beautiful moments and the ugly times. Before The Sun you know him from his drawings of the Broncos during their Super Bowl wins in the 1990s that gained a great following at Rocky Mountain News.
The Colorado Sun will give net profits to Drew because we want to support his efforts to illustrate local news (View his cartoons at The Sun HERE).
UPDATE, June 15, 2023: We are going with the super soft tri-blend NextLevel 6010 T-shirts (made from 50% Polyester, 25% Combed Ring-Spun Cotton, 25% Rayon) and our Denver-based printers will use a 8-screen printing process for a super luxurious and high quality shirt.
UPDATE, June 20, 2023: The printer has our T-shirt order and expects to complete the silkscreen process by mid-July. We expect to ship out orders the week of July 17. Thanks to all who supported this one-time print run.
UPDATE, July 17, 2023: All pre-orders have been shipped or reserved for pick-up. We ordered a few extra and will continue to sell them online until they sell out.
