’47 Penguins Hocket Shirt – Value $28 (based on the pricetag)

The shirt in this chest is much better than the last – because it’s from ’47 – one of my favorite hockey brands!

While it’s pretty basic – I’m a fan of the basic team tee – plus it’s using the new, old, gold for the team. Perfect.

Fleece Throw – Value $20 on NHL.com

The big item in this month’s Fanchest is a fleece throw.

Fanchest-Penguins-April-2017-0021

This is a 50×60 inch fleece throw. It’s really soft and cozy – and not overly thick, so you can use it even as it’s getting warmer outside. Again, it’s got the team’s updated colors – and it’s enough coverage for me and the dog – what more can you ask for?

Penguins Frosted Glass Mug – Value $10 on Fanatics

You’ll also get a really nice frosted glass mug – especially useful in the playoffs when the pressure mounts.

Fanchest-Penguins-April-2017-0012

It’s a 16 oz glass mug. It’s also got some weight, I think they’ve used some thicker glass – I love it.

Die-Cut Magnet – Value $7.25 on Amazon

You’ll get a 3.5 x 4.5 inch magnet of the team logo with the updated colors. Perfect for the refrigerator – but I’m going to find a way to use it with the car!

Fanchest-Penguins-April-2017-0013

Penguins Mini-Flashlight – Value $5-10?

You’ll get a mini LED flashlight with the team colors and logo. Again, this is going into the car – you never know when you’ll need a flashlight.

Penguins Mini Pennant – Value $3 based on similar pennants

The last item in the box is a mini pennant featuring the old Vegas gold colors. It’s a little 4×9 pennant to hang in the room of your choice.

Verdict: My team buying goes off the radar during playoffs. Every year. I recently saw something while walking in the arena, and just immediately decided that I had to have it and bought it – so getting a box full of goodies is never a bad thing for me, especially right now! Not only that, the big ticket items are high-quality licensed items – I got about $78 of value for $59!

What do you think of the Pittsburgh Penguins Fanchest? Do you subscribe to other teams?

  1. So true about the throw. It has to cover my Bam Bam and me!!

  2. I would totally get this for my husband or son if they had any or all of the Philly teams! Hoping they expand soon, would be a super cute Fathers Day gift from my sports crazy son to his sports crazy dad!

    • Yes! Philly!!

  3. Are the items the same across the different teams or does each team have different items? How often do they do new ones?

    • It’s not the same items for different teams – it’s more than likely to be different items. It doesn’t seem like there is a schedule for new teams or even new boxes for a team. This is the third Pens Fanchest – my review in December is the first Pens box, and has different items that are more seasonal.
