You can have your Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Everyone knows the holiday shopping season doesnt really kick into high gear until the annual appearance of the Uni Watch Holiday Gift Guide, your best source for gift items related to the visual culture of sports.The ground rules are the same as in the past: If youre looking for your basic jerseys and caps, you wont find those here (you already know where to find those). But if youre searching for unusual products relating to uniforms, team logos, sports equipment or any other area of athletics aesthetics, youve come to the right place.This years haul features items from a wide range of sports and price points, so there should be something for everyone. Ready? Here we go.1. Displays for your bobblehead collectionSure, you could just put your bobblehead collection on shelves like everyone else. But why do that when your bobbleheads can live in their own dugout, or bullpen, or penalty box, or grandstand? All that and more is available from BobbleHouse Industries, which creates sports-themed environments that are sized just right for bobblehead dolls. If you dont like any of their stock items, theyll custom-design something for you. A great way to enhance your collection. Check them out here.2. NBA cashmere sweaters and accessoriesGot a spare $1,620 burning a hole in your pocket? Thats how much itll run you to score one of the new NBA cashmere sweaters from the luxury brand Elder Statesman. If you cant afford that, you can always get a cashmere hoodie for $1,200, a cashmere scarf for $725 or a cashmere pompom cap for $420. Sure, the prices are ridiculous, but its still pretty amusing to see classic NBA designs like the Lakers chest lettering rendered in cashmere. (Ditto for not-so-classic designs like the Clippers current logo.) Unfortunately, they dont have a cashmere version of the Hawks neon-green graphics -- maybe next year. Additional info here, and you can check out the full product line here.3. St. Louis Cardinals Uniforms & Logos: An Illustrated History, 1882-2016The Cardinals have had Major League Baseballs best uniforms for several generations running, and this new book, produced by the Cardinals Hall of Fame, takes a detail-driven look at the teams uni history, dating back all the way to 1882. Each entry on the teams uniform timeline is showcased with a series of illustrations and archival photos, and every part of the uniform is covered, from caps and jerseys to socks and sleeve patches. A must for Cardinals fans, and a valuable addition to any uniform aficionados library. Get it here. (Also worthwhile: Redbird Relics, a book featuring items from the Cardinals Hall of Fames collection, including lots of uniforms. Get that one here.)4. Game Worn: Baseball Treasures from the Games Greatest Heroes and MomentsYa say ya want more than just Cardinals uniforms? This new volume from Smithsonian Books charts the course of baseball history through the uniforms worn by the games biggest stars. The early chapters highlight the jerseys worn by legends like Babe Ruth, Ty Cobb and Bob Feller, while later chapters focus on the expansion era, the move to double-knit uniforms and the modern era (you can see some of the books interior pages here). Spectacular photography showcases the feel of each uniform, from the textured flannel of Jackie Robinsons Brooklyn Dodgers jersey to the deep powder blue of George Bretts Royals road uni. A treat for any uniform fan. Get it here.5. Team logo lawn stencil kitsShow your team pride, and make the neighbors jealous while youre at it, with these lawn stencil kits from the appropriately named Great Big Logo company. The kits are available for a range of college teams, and each one comes with the appropriate paint colors for the job. Get them here.6. Painted baseball batsLets face it: Most baseball bats are pretty plain-looking objects. But if you start painting stripes and patterns on them, theyre transformed into surprisingly cool display pieces. Two companies excel at this: Mitchell Bat Company, which specializes in vibrant stripes (check them out here), and Pillbox Bat Co., which adorns its product line with very handsome flag-based imagery (check them out here). The only problem is that youll never find a stocking long enough to stuff the bats into!7. Smartphone cases with real hockey lacesYou might think all shoelaces are pretty much the same. But any serious hockey fan can pick out real skate laces, which have diagonal ticking stripes running through the cloth. Now you can get a Lace Case -- an iPhone case made with real skate laces. Its an ingeniously simple and visually effective way to tell the world which sport is your favorite. Get it here.8. Wallets lined with game-used uniformsPut your money where your uni is -- or maybe its the other way around -- with these genuine leather wallets lined with swatches from authenticated game-used jerseys. Available in a wide range of NFL, MLB, NCAA and NHL teams. Get them here.9.

The pieces are ready to be hung on the wall, and the prices are surprisingly reasonable. Check them out here.10.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Jacksonville Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell says he was doing his homework on Greg Hardy when he brought in the polarizing defensive end for a two-day workout and interview session last week.Caldwell said he has no imminent plans to sign Hardy, a free agent who spent last season in Dallas. He added that the Jaguars are going to turn over every rock, but not at any price.We want to take calculated risks and well take chances, but were not going to do this at any cost, either, Caldwell said.Hardy had a tumultuous season with the Cowboys, one that started with a four-game suspension stemming from his domestic violence case in North Carolina. It also was marked by several disruptions including a physical confrontation with an assistant coach. Dallas opted not to re-sign him.It was an opportunity for us -- heres a guy that was a franchise defensive end two years ago sitting out on the street -- to bring him in, work him out and try to find out the facts where hes at, the truth behind everything that surrounds him and just do our homework, Caldwell said. We brought him and he did a workout.Its not often you get your chance to put your hands on a player of that caliber to work him out. So well just see where its at. We have no imminent plans of signing him at this point. But it was good to get him in here and find out about him.The Jaguars could use some veteran pass-rushing help after parting ways with Chris Clemons and Andre Branch and failing to sign Olivier Vernon and Robert Ayers in free agency.They have Dante Fowler, the third overall pick in the 2015 draft, coming off knee surgery but have little quality depth behind him. His backups include linebacker Dan Skuta, former first-round pick Bjoern Werner, third-year pro Chris Smith and rookies Yannick Ngakoue and Tyrone Holmes.dddddddddddddding Hardy to the mix likely would only happen if the Jaguars deal with injuries or inconsistency during training camp, which begins Thursday.And Hardy, one of the biggest names, remaining on the free-agent market.It was really to find out more about him so we dont have any questions going into the season, Caldwell said. There are no what-ifs for us right now. There could have been a what-if Week 3, Week 4 or into the preseason, but we kind of have our questions answered as our game plan for him.Hardy was suspended for the first four games of last season for violating the NFLs personal conduct policy. He was accused in 2014 of throwing his then-girlfriend into a bathtub and then on a futon covered with guns and trying to choke her. A judge found him guilty on domestic violence charges.Hardy denied the charges and said his ex was under the influence of alcohol and was angry because he told her to leave his home. He appealed the conviction, and the case was dismissed in February 2015 after prosecutors said they were unable to locate the woman. Prosecutors said the woman had reached a settlement with Hardy.Domestic violence is a serious issue, Caldwell said. Theres no place for it in the world, let alone the NFL. But I think for us, were going to do whats best for our team. We have players that want to win. We have a coaching staff that wants to win as much as our fan base.
