If there’s one thing Dallas, Texas doesn’t lack, it’s spectator sports options. Whether you just moved to the Big D, or are soon, consider the following list as a Dallas sports fan starter set. Once Bellhops has you all moved in, get ready to get in on one of the best sports scenes in the world.
- Cowboys Foam Finger:
The proverbial foam finger, representing the one and only Dallas Cowboys (aka America’s Team). This will help you stand out in the crowd at AT&T Stadium. And you will need to stand out. The Dallas Cowboys have now played the most consecutive sold out regular and post-season games in NFL history. Considering AT&T Stadium seats 100,000, that’s a lot of people.
- Dirk Nowitzki Jersey:
Dirk Nowitzki, whom some considered to be the greatest NBA power forward of all time, continues to be one of the stars for the Dallas Mavericks. He was drafted in 1998 by the Milwaukee Bucks but was quickly traded to the Mavericks, where he’s stayed for almost 20 years. He’s the jewel in the Mavericks crown, earning the NBA MVP Award in 2007 and is currently ranked #6 in all-time points scored. You’re not a true Dallas sports fan until you grab this proud jersey. whom some considered to be the greatest NBA power forward of all time, continues to be one of the stars for the Dallas Mavericks.

- Rangers Baseball Hat:
Any bonafide Dallas sports fan follows one of the Dallas area’s oldest sports teams, the Texas Rangers. The Texas Rangers are a Major League Baseball team located in Arlington, Texas (a stone’s throw from Dallas), competing in the American League’s West Division. They’ve been to the World Series twice and they’ve won their division eight times in the past 20 years. The Rangers are a perennial force in the American League. During the past 50 years of their existence, they’ve had seven Hall of Famers, including the famous Nolan Ryan.
- Red River Rivalry Tickets:
Though neither team is from Dallas, the classic Red River Rivalry is an annual college football game between the University of Oklahoma and the University of Texas that’s hosted in Dallas every year. The rivalry has been going on for 111 years, making it one of the longest lasting rivalries in all of American sports history. You don’t have to be an alum of either school to have fun at the game, and it should be on the calendar of every Dallas sports fan.
- FC Dallas Scarf:
A more recent addition to the Dallas sports scene is FC Dallas (previously known as Dallas Burn). They’ve been in Dallas since 1996, as soccer’s popularity has grown in the city and across the country. FC Dallas competes in the MLS, finishing runner-up to the Colorado Rapids in 2010. Show your Dallas pride in this sports team, by picking up an FC Dallas scarf.
- (Bonus Points!) A Dallas Stars Hockey Puck:
No Dallas sports fan collection is complete without a Dallas Stars hockey puck. Along with its multi-purpose use as a doorstop or paperweight, it can also sit in your sports cave as a tribute to the NHL hockey team. They do have some pegs to hang their cowboy hat on: the Stars have won eight division titles, two western conference championships, and once in 1999, the Stanley Cup championship.
