Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce

While it’s been a few weeks since Taylor Swift last attended a Kansas City Chiefs game, her relationship with Travis Kelce remains strong.

So much so, that it appears the All-Pro tight end has purchased a gift for the pop superstar that represents his alma mater.

According to a seamstress in Cincinnati, recently Kelce purchased a pair of custom Bearcats basketball jerseys. One of the jerseys includes Kelce’s last name and the No. 87, which he has worn throughout his career in Kansas City, while the other features Swift’s last name and her signature favorite number, 13.

The seamstress, Nancy Roth, shared images of the custom Jordan Brand jerseys on Facebook, which was first reported by the New York Post.

“Well today I received the order for Tavis Kelce [sic],” Roth wrote in a post that his since been removed, according to BroBible. “UC Jorden [sic] men’s basketball jerseys sets for him and his brother and two friends, and of course his girl.”

Why would Kelce purchase custom UC Bearcats jerseys for himself and Swift? Aside from the Cleveland Heights native’s pride for his alma mater, one user on X (formerly Twitter) noted that the Bearcats men’s basketball team is scheduled to play at Kansas on Monday, Jan. 22. With Swift on break from her tour at that time and Kelce having an off day on Tuesday if the Chiefs are still in the playoffs, it’s perfectly conceivable that Kelce and Swift — “Traylor” as they’re known — could be in attendance in Lawrence, which is just 40 miles away from Kansas City.

Kelce starred at the University of Cincinnati from 2009-2012, catching 59 passes for 875 yards and 10 touchdowns over the course of three seasons. He has since gone on to enjoy one of the most prolific careers of any tight end in NFL history and has been a key member of two Super Bowl-winning teams in Kansas City.
