I think they mean the retro jerseys they do every year?  Sounds about right for this time of year.  Did they even do retro jerseys last year?

It might be tied into the the retro gear (Turf Traditions apparel line) that New Era is selling this month.

My guess is there will be no new jersey but they may wear a different helmet decal.

no they did not. Yesterday I found the Bombers are still doing a fan appreciation day with all players autographs etc...can we put that up here as well. The date escapes me but it is in September.
