Get a 29-29 Shirt for $28

If you missed out on purchasing a Harvard-Yale shirt earlier this month, Urban Outfitters offers a pricey alternative. This way you can be ready for The Game year-round.

For $17.99 (recently reduced from $28) plus a $10 shipping fee, you can order a "Harvard Beats Yale 29-29" shirt, which bears the famous headline from the Nov. 25, 1968, issue of The Crimson.

The product description even gives The Crimson a shout-out: "Crimson Tie. Soft heathered tee from Homage, printed at the front with a Harvard Beats Yale graphic borrowed from a Harvard Crimson headline published after the legendary 1968 Game, in which Harvard came from behind, scoring 16 points in the final 42 seconds to tie Yale."

This "legendary" shirt seems to be one of several Game-related tees, including vintage Harvard and Yale tops. A spokesperson for Urban Outfitters told us that the shirt, which still costs $28 if you buy it in-store in Harvard Square, was chosen because of "Ivy League and heritage-inspired trends."

Perhaps Urban Outfitters customers might find $28 an acceptable price to pay for the chance to wear something that will make people think they went to Harvard or Yale.
