An Ode to Apex
While working on our uniform history page (92-95 uniform section), I fondly remembered how crazy those Apex jerseys were, and somehow wishing this company was still around to at least provide with an alternate jersey. Kind of like the Minnesota Twins turn ahead the clock jerseys. Not for the season mind you, just one game, to be auctioned off afterwards.
Here's a look back at some of the Apex One brand jerseys used in the Big Ten.
Apex also made jerseys for other schools such as Arkansas and others that I don't recall at the time, and at least 5 NFL teams, including the Dallas Cowboys famous double star jersey still used on Thanksgiving Day. Apex folded in early 95 and the Gophers actually removed the Apex patch, while some schools replaced the Apex patch with another company logo who was then supplying their jerseys (see the Badger's jersey above with the Starter patch sewn on).
