Tees with a purpose. That was Ricky’s goal with when he approached the Oaklandish and Never Elsewhere office about a potential collaboration. Ricky feels strongly about his connection with Bay Area foster youth, so when the discussion about beneficiaries for tee sales began, First Place For Youth was a natural fit. With every purchase of this ‘Vintage 32’ collaboration, First Place for Youth will receive a portion of the proceeds, so your support for Ricky directly helps a great cause. First Place for Youth supports foster kids as they learn to support themselves as responsible adults. With relentless support, through good times and bad, First Place for Youth helps countless individuals reach their full potential in school, work and life.
Ricky wanted a tee that instilled a timeless feeling while simultaneously empowering anyone wearing it. The ‘Vintage 32’ chest print serves as a shout out to Ricky’s accomplishments on and off the field. The ‘Lead the Pack’ lockertag is straightforward: Lead, don’t follow. Self-Empowerment is a characteristic that Ricky has not only practiced but preached. The goal of this collaboration is to encourage people from all walks of life to believe in themselves and to make an impact in life.
