If you haven’t come down already to admire Mark Stoddart’s new art collection “Voices from the Past,” this weekend is your last chance! The artist himself, Mark Stoddart, will be in Saturday (and maybe on Sunday) to greet you, share stories, answer questions, and entertain you! So come down to The SPORT Gallery this weekend, pay Mark (and us!) a visit, and indulge in his newest creations!
“Voices from the Past” is a collection of digital original art based on the SPORT magazine archive that features some of the greatest athletes African American of the 20th century – Muhammad Ali, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Jim Brown, Dr. J, The Big O, The Brown Bomber, Bill Russell, and Jackie Robinson. Mark’s intention with this new collection is to tell and share the stories of these great athletes that have inspired him, in hopes that he too can inspire you by their stories.
So come be inspired this weekend with Mark Stoddart at The SPORT Gallery!
(Oh and since it’s Halloween weekend we’ll have some free candy as well for all of you who come visit Mark)
The SPORT Gallery has just released it’s newest line of SPORT products, SPORT skins. Made by Gelaskins, SPORT Skins are vinyl tablet covers that offer the protection of a case without the bulk. They are light-weight, easy to apply, and easy to remove. For our first launch we are offering SPORT Skins for the iPad 2 in a series of SPORT magazine cover images. Below is the August 1949 SPORT magazine cover SPORT Skin featuring Jackie Robinson. iPad 2 SPORT Skins are available in-store and online for only $35.
The Greatest Collection celebrates THE GREATEST – Muhammad Ali. More than just an amazing boxer – loved by fans who have never even seen him fight – Ali has truly passed the test of time, transcending any boundaries of time, space, and sport, in order to become a true cultural icon. There is no one greater, no one with more confidence, determination, and charisma – which is why he is the subject of our new collection of t-shirts (and the centerpiece in our upcoming exhibition “Voices from the Past: A (re)Collection for the SPORTs-minded” that kicks off on Thursday September 29th).
This new collection of t-shirts by No Mas and Wornfree boasts 3 Ali styles, the classic “World Champion” tee, the replica “Cassius Clay” tee, and the all-time favorite “Float Like a Butterfly, Sting Like a Bee” tee. Made is the USA, these tees have quickly become our best-seller, so I can’t guarantee they’ll be around for long. So come down as soon as you can to pick up your own GREATEST COLLECTION tee and celebrate the Great Muhammad Ali.
The new Tokens and Icons NHL collection is in production – and will arrive on our doorstep by December 1st – just in time for the holidays! And I know it seems a bit early to be thinking of Christmas gifts – but I’m just spreading the word about these new pieces so that you can get a little head start on your shopping this year.
Tokens and Icons has had an incredible response to their MLB collection – with game used ball cufflinks from all the major baseball teams at the top of every shopping list… But maybe here in Toronto – where Hockey is what we live and breathe – we haven’t all quite understood the craze. Well, that is about to change with Tokens and Icons’ new NHL collection that features game-used puck cufflinks, game used jersey wallets, vintage arena seat cufflinks, and vintage arena plexiglass bottle openers. And we are extremely proud to be carrying the ENTIRE collection.
If the NHL collection does half as well as the MLB collection I know these will go quickly – so to make sure you get a little piece of history for the hockey-lover in your life PRE-ORDER your cufflinks, wallet or bottle opener today – by calling us (416-861-8514) or better yet – stopping by and paying us a visit at The SPORT Gallery in Toronto’s Distillery Historic District (Building 32, Suite 103).
Having personally scoured the market for everything hockey gift related out there – I can without a doubt tell you that this collection is the most original, authentic, and classy selection of hockey related gifts out there. This is the best gift for the hockey-lover on your list.
Starting tomorrow the Distillery District is having it’s first Christmas Market – which means a lot going on down here. There’s going to be lots of booths, a Ferris wheel, entertainment, and a whole lot of christmas spirit. But what does this mean for us? Longer hours and a fun booth outside. So now’s your chance to scratch off the gifts on your list for all the sports fans in your life (or those you think should be sports fan). We’ve also got a lot of great new hoodies and sweaters to keep you warm when you’re riding the Ferris wheel. And hey, if you get too cold checking out the sites outside, feel free to come keep us company here at the SPORT Gallery. We’ve got a nice comfy couch and warm fireplace, and endless sports books and images for you to look through. Anyways, hope to see you there!
