The holiday season is here and with this joyful time of year comes the pressure of finding that perfect gift for a family member, friend or special someone. Stressed out? No need to be. Complete holiday shopping by purchasing one of the most popular jerseys in San Diego for a loved one to sport proudly.


Adrian Gonzalez

This hometown hero and All-Star first baseman’s jersey is available at Sports Fan in the Fashion Valley Shopping Mall for $110. Also, an Authentic Adrian Gonzalez All-Star Jersey can be found at Sports Chalet for $249, located in the Mission Valley Mall. San Diegans can’t go wrong wearing the famed No. 23.

Mat Latos

Turn just as many heads wearing a Mat Latos jersey as the Padres’ pitcher does, thanks to his numerous and occasionally controversial tattoos. Sports Fan in Fashion Valley carries his jersey in adult sizes for $110.



The former SDSU phenom-turned-MLB pitcher made his debut for the Washington Nationals this past season. Unfortunately, it is likely Stephen Strasburg is going to have Tommy John surgery to repair a large tear in a ligament in his right elbow. While he may be sidelined until 2012, buy a Strasburg jersey for $110 from Sports Chalet to support the San Diego native and Aztec alumnus during his injury.

D.J. Gay

The popular jersey on campus this basketball season will be that of number 23 — point guard and team captain D.J. Gay. Purchase his jersey at the SDSU Bookstore for $45. Looking to show even more Aztec pride? Invest in a No. 32 Billy White jersey, which will also cost $45. For those who are Mortar Board Planner owners, take advantage of the monthly 20 percent off coupons for some serious savings.


Philip Rivers

While the Chargers’ season looks to be a bleak one, there is still hope for loyal fans. Look classy in a powder-blue Philip Rivers jersey this holiday season. The QB’s jersey can be found at Sports Chalet in Mission Valley in a variety of styles and prices.

Antonio Gates

Support the injured tight end through his recent plantar fascia and sprained ankle injuries. He is sure to make a full recovery within the next few games, so in the meantime, stop by Sports Chalet and purchase his jersey as a gift. Gates’ jersey is available in a variety of styles and prices to fit everyone’s budget this holiday season.
