fiftyseven-thirtythree

It’s been 40 years since our beloved A’s brought home their first Oakland World Championship.

Reggie, Vida, Rollie, Sal, Joe, Catfish and the rest of the boys put Oakland in the MLB history books.
The Athletics hadn’t won a World Championship since 1930 when the team was in Philadelphia.
In just their 5th season in Oakland they brought home the Commissioners Trophy, making Oakland
a city of Champions.

This new t-shirt, ’72’, by EBX Loakal celebrates the team who put Oakland on the map 40 sweet years ago.

’72’ is available for purchase at ebxloakal.com

Hey guys! You’ve probably been seeing a whole lot of content being generated from us regarding something called Loakal so I want to formally introduce what is really going on here.

Loakal is an apparel and design collaboration between East Bay Express and fiftyseven-thirtythree. All design is Oakland-themed, including imagery and typography.  The goal of the project is to promote an inclusive Oakland. This includes well known areas, but also the unexplored Oakland.  Loakal merchandise will be available on fiftyseven-thirtythree.com.  A percentage of the sales will go to an Oakland charitable cause .  Enjoy!

Eddie Colla has worked on a special print for the team over at 1xRUN, which will be available today at Noon (pst)!  This is a brand new piece titled, Radio Yau Ma Tei, comes in two different versions (Red Lettering, $120, 20 available and 22K GOLD, $200, 3 available!!!) and both are Limited Edition.  The prints are 18″ x 24″ Giclee/Silkscreen on 300lb. Italian Hotpress Acid-Free Paper.

1xRUN is the premier online destination for exclusive one-of-a-kind artwork in any and all forms.  1xRUN is focused on bringing limited-edition time released artwork to collectors across the globe.

Eddie explains the piece, saying :

“This piece is part of an ongoing series around this character (Bike Girl). The text on the piece loosely translated says “I have a name, but it doesn’t matter” The pieces are vignettes of her life and part of a larger story. The story takes place in Hong Kong. I had a rough idea and layout of this image, but I didn’t really want to make a straight giclee for this. I wanted some randomness and some expression in these. The embellishing wasn’t very planned, I’d just sit down with some prints and go at it. It changed from day to day and the prints done at the beginning and at the end feel pretty different.”

The RUN comes signed, numbered, and with a Certificate of Authenticity from Eddie Colla and 1xRUN.
