Patriots can’t keep ugly X-Mas sweater modeled by Rob Gronkowski in stock (pic)


One of the most sought-after holiday-themed items available for purchase through the New England Patriots Pro Shop is the “Ugly Christmas Sweater” donned by tight end Rob Gronkowski.

The dominating tight end and fan favorite was featured on the cover of the team’s holiday catalog wearing the outrageous sweater, arguably spurning an even greater interest in it.

The sweaters retail for $64.95 and have been the hottest item of the season. The Patriots reportedly stated the team already has sold out of the Ugly Christmas Sweater modeled by Gronk a total of three times, per a Boston Globe report.


For those hoping to make a last-minute purchase for the grown-up Patriots fan in their lives with an affinity for ironically garish holiday attire, think again. The Patriots apparently are not expecting another shipment of ugly X-Mas sweaters to be available until after New Year’s, perhaps in the first week of January.

Sweaters in the sizes for pint-sized Pats fans, though, reportedly are still available in the team’s Pro Shop. Adult-sized versions of the Ugly Christmas Sweater donned by Gronk apparently can be had on eBay, but along with a significant markup.
