|WHO WE ARE
Dan Hershberg, President and Co-Founder
Born and raised in Philadelphia, from an early age Dan Hershberg has been obsessed with sports. Refusing to allow a .078 Little League batting average or his crippling inability to convert a left-handed lay-up deter him, Dan spent the majority of his childhood dreaming about working in sports. At age 16, that dream became a reality when he spent the summer at WSCR (The Score) Sports Radio in Chicago working in the PR department. That opportunity led to stints with Comcast SportsNet in Philadelphia, a web-based Fantasy Football service at BTG Sports and a three-year job in the front office with the Philadelphia Phillies.
After graduating Cornell University, Dan took a position with the studio production department at ESPN and worked for two years at the company’s Bristol, CT headquarters. While at ESPN, Dan produced and edited montages and other creative pieces that aired nightly on the 11pm and 1am SportsCenter. Dan’s work was featured in and responsible for the creation of the SportsCenter “Encore” segment, a creative revisit of an important game or series from that night.
Since starting Philly Phaithful from his childhood home in 2008, Dan has grown the company by leaps and bounds, with eight retail locations selling our apparel and many positive pieces of press and media coverage. Armed with seven years of experience in the retail industry, Dan is excited to take Philly Phaithful to the next level and continue to provide our customers with top-notch customer service and unique, originally designed merchandise.

Justin Wright - Lead Graphic Designer
up as an avid sports fan in the Lehigh Valley, Justin quickly realizing
that he did not have Randall Cunningham's legs or Jeremy Roenick's
wrist shot and thus decided to focus all his energy on graphic design.
After great tutelage at Easton High, Justin attended Syracuse
University, where he earned a degree in Communications Design in the
spring of 2006.
He can now be found reppin' it in the belly of the beast...New York
City. Never too timid to showcase his allegiance to the city of Brotherly
Love, Justin currently finds himself on the most wanted list at several
NY Sporting venues. Why do they hate us? Because we care more than they
do! It was his relentless passion for design and sport that gave Justin
the opportunity as a lead designer at Philly Phaithful, where he's been
keeping the Phaith ever since!

A die-hard Eagles and Phillies fan, Bart has deep Philadelphia roots as his grandpa owned a West Philly taproom called Mahle’s Bar and Grill during his childhood.
