Most of the items you’ll receive are licensed products – with a couple Fanchest exclusives.
Sidney Crosby Shirt – Value $19 on Amazon
The Penguins shirt features their caption Sidney Crosby. It’s a 90/10 cotton/polyester blend with a simple design – I love it.
Penguins Winter Hat – Value $22 on Amazon
The second wearable item is a fantastic winter hat featuring the new (old) black and gold!
It’s really warm and cozy – perfect for the recent frigid temperatures.
Game Used Stick Bottle Opener – Value $14
How cool is this item? Requip’d is partnered with 26 NHL teams in North America to upcycle game use sticks into new products.
This is a fun gift for any hockey fan – and I love that the one I received was even black and gold!
Penguins Tumbler – Value $14.99
They include a Penguins tumbler! I love these types of mugs – they keep your drink warm or cold while protecting your hands.
The design is great, too – I was happy to see that the products are featuring the return to the classic black and gold color scheme and not the Vegas gold.
City Prints Arena Coasters (2 Pack) – Value $10-15?
The value is really a total guess. The coasters aren’t felt or cardboard – they seem to be a thicker plastic, so I think these will hold up nicely with frequent use.
As a frequent attendee to the games, I can verify that this is the seat map of the PPG Paints Arena – home of the Penguins!
Verdict: As a Penguins fan myself, I was excited to hear that they now had Penguin Fanchests! My value comes to right around $80 – which is really good for the $59 price point. I also thought they did a great job curating this one – I liked it more than the Steelers crate and loved the game used stick bottle opener!
