Even though Week 1 of the 2023 regular season is over a month away, the Philadelphia Eagles have fans buzzing right now. That’s because the team is bringing back its beloved Kelly Green throwback jerseys for the upcoming campaign.
As soon as these snazzy uniforms were unveiled, the Philly faithful started preparing their wallets for the release on Monday. Once the official team store at Lincoln Financial Field opened at 9 a.m. ET, the scene was something to behold.
In the blink of an eye, dozens of Eagles lovers filled the empty store, all with one target in mind: those beautiful Kelly Green jerseys. The team seemed well-prepared for the demand, stocking the new alternates for most players. One attendee is seen holding up a Jason Kelce in the above video, while the back wall of the venue also shows unis for Darius Slay, Devonta Smith, Haason Reddick, A.J. Brown, Lane Johnson and Jalen Hurts, among others.
Though a jersey release isn’t the most important thing in the world, Eagles fans treating it like it is just speaks to the city’s unrivaled passion. I mean, how many fanbases would seriously be lining up for a uniform drop like it’s Black Friday?
Where to Buy Eagles Kelly Green Jerseys?
If you have something like a pesky job that keeps you from lining up at the team store first thing on a Monday morning, you may be looking for other ways to buy a Kelly Green jersey. As of writing, they are still available at the online NFL Shop, but I wouldn’t expect those to be in stock for long.
The jerseys are obviously the main appeal, but all the Eagles merch looks even better in Kelly Green — some of the best hats, sweaters and t-shirts in the store are all the new Kelly Green ones.
When Will the Eagles Wear Kelly Green?
Unfortunately, the sheer volume of fans hoping to snag a Kelly Green jersey means some are going to come away empty-handed. Don’t fret, however. You’ll get to see these unis in action twice during the season. The Eagles will wear their famed alternates on Sunday Night Football against the Miami Dolphins during Week 7, and again in Week 12 versus the Buffalo Bills.
Hopefully the look good, play good mantra follows Philadelphia in these two matchups. The fact the team is breaking out the Kelly Greens for two high-profile opponents, who are right near the Eagles in the Super Bowl odds conversation, shows some serious confidence they won’t spoil the return of these treasured jerseys.
