You can also check PBA.com for details.

How about that!

Do you guys (and gals) think it will lead to sales of replica versions of the Gemini-made PBA jerseys available to the fans who don't want to pay $150-200 for one?

I am a Storm bowler myself (although not a staff member) so I am a bit partisan towards the shirts designed for Jeff Carter (that Eddie Van Halen-inspired red shirt really kicks (you know what!), Rhino Page, PDW, and Ryan Shafer, such as I have seen during the second half of this season.

Also, which player would you want to wear on your back? My picks are already mentioned, how about you? Please have in mind your favorite players with respect to the equipment you use on the lanes. I can't wait to read your thoughts.

I can see mass marketing potential, not just for the sponsors, but also the players and for Gemini Sports, and putting the jerseys on sale at pro shops or through special order would spike sales of them IMO, almost to the current level of other pro sports leagues (NFL/CFL/MLB/NBA/NHL) and their replica jerseys. What a thrill it would be to both make a statement and bowl in league with one of these bad boys' names on your back!

Kinda tough to decide who to represent every week (Page/Weber/Shafer/Duke/etc.), but that would be a thrill to have league players who are hardcore PBA fans wearing them while they compete every week.

Huh, so not all of those shirts are of the new variety this season? Honestly, I'd hate to see Walter Ray bowl in one of those shirts.

I hope at least a few players keep their custom signatures on the back of their shirts; the trend seems to be that most players are switching to generic block letters. I love Parker Bohn III's signature on the back of his shirt. WRW's is also great, and so is Wes Malott's. I hope they'll stay after the rest goes.

I know that Storm and Roto are going to have jerseys made for the public. Ones that aren't going to cost you a couple hundred bucks. Last I heard, they were still in the development stage but that was a few months ago.

I would might buy one of the company shirts, but I won't shell out a few hundred dollars to have PDW on my back.
