The San Jose Sharks are taking their Los Tiburones jersey giveaway to another level for 2019-20.

San Jose unveiled five sensational shirseys with five unique Sharks logos dubbed "The Artist Collection" that it will distribute to fans at five home games at SAP Center this season.

The Sharks have donned warmup jerseys designed by Bay Area-based artists to celebrate Dia de los Muertos, or the Mexican Day of the Dead, each of the past two seasons. Those designs were so successful that the Sharks commissioned five more artists to produce giveaway shirts, and each will be available to fans at San Jose's home games Oct. 19, Nov. 16, Jan. 11, Feb. 1 and March 21.

Abel Gonzalez, Jimbo Phillips, Jeff McMillan, Tristan Eaton and the graffiti artist Girl Mobb produced the designs, and each artist used inspiration from a Bay Area city to reimagine the Sharks logo on a shirt. Gonzalez's celebrates the Quetzalcoatl statue in Cesar Chavez Park in San Jose. McMillan's features the Sharks logo with SAP Center and the Santa Cruz mountains in the background.

Phillips' design incorporates the Sharks logo with his own unique spin, which he typically incorporates in skateboards. Girl Mobb uses her signature graffiti-style design, and Eaton's has colorful Bay Area-themed artistry.
