Deals On David Beckham Jerseys For Kids!
Soccer might not be as popular in the United States as it is in the rest of the world, but I think it has been gaining traction with American sports fans in recent years.
MLS games are now shown on ESPN, ESPN2, and ABC, and additional coverage is provided on recap shows like SportsCenter.
Plus, I’m seeing more and more youngsters walking around in David Beckham jerseys for kids, which is something I’d never even noticed before. Yes, it seems that soccer is finally becoming a major sport in the USA!
I don’t think it’s a stretch to say that Beckham’s decision to come over and play for the L.A. Galaxy back in 2007 had a lot to do with soccer’s rising popularity.
He is one of the most famous footballers in the world and has had a long, storied career thus far. Over in England he and wife Victoria (aka Posh Spice) could never escape from the paparazzi, so even if Americans didn’t follow soccer, surely they knew about Becks from the tabloids.
When he did cross the pond, suddenly his jersey became one of the hottest fashion accessories around and it seemed like everyone had to have one.
There are a lot of different styles on the market because he has played for several different teams during his career.
L.A. Galaxy models featuring the number 23 are top sellers at just about every sports store around. There are two versions of this: a white one that the team wears for home games and a navy one for away games.
The Galaxy have also used other colors in their uniforms, such as green and gold, but that was before Becks arrived. The most popular ones today are either white or navy, so take your pick from those.
If you want to go back a bit farther in his career, I would suggest buying the different Manchester United styles that many online retailers still sell.
These are either black or red, and feature the number 7, which is what Becks wore during his playing days for Man U. An authentic version from this period of Beckham’s career could cost several hundred dollars, so be prepared to pay that if you’re a big fan! You can also try to track down Real Madrid or Milan versions to round out your collection.
