The athletics enthusiasts at Sports Den curate an assortment of officially licensed major-league-sports memorabilia that can be toted around on people's persons or displayed in people's homes. Fans of all ages and oscillating speeds can cover their torsos in pride with a Seattle Seahawks T-shirt ($19.99) or a replica football jersey ($80). Seattle Mariners authentic on-field hats ($33.99) shield scalps and mascot faces from harmful ultraviolet rays during long days at the ballpark or inside tanning beds. Sports Den also offers a variety of sports-related knick-knacks such as official baseballs, key chains, pendants, and trading cards (prices vary). Though the majority of wares pay homage to local teams—the Mariners, Seahawks, Sonics, Huskies, and Thunderbirds—the Den's shelves are peppered with tokens, trinkets, and accouterments commemorating a slew of other professional and collegiate sports teams.
