Spirit of #TeamSTL: Blues to celebrate Birds’ return with Cardinals-themed jerseys

Paul Stastny shows off the Cardinals-themed jerseys the Blues will sport during warmups before their April 11 game against the Wild.

The return of Cardinal baseball is just around the corner, and no one’s more excited than — the St. Louis Blues?

The Blues announced during Thursday’s game that they’ll be supporting #TeamSTL by wearing Cardinals-themed hockey jerseys during their warmups on April 11, when they face Minnesota. The Cardinals will face Cincinnati earlier that afternoon, the fifth game of their regular season.

The jerseys, which you can see modeled above by center Paul Stastny, feature the birds-on-the-bat logo across the chest, Cardinal numbering and lettering on the back, the "STL" logo on both sleeves and a Blue Note on each shoulder.

Each player will autograph his jersey after warmups and they will then be available through an online auction. The auction, which runs from April 11-24, will benefit the Blues 14 Fund and Cardinals Care. You can place your bid at stlouisblues.com during that time.
