Back when the 1970s girl Julie was first released, a big part of her story was her love of basketball and how hard she worked to get her school to allow her to play on the team due to her gender. American Girl originally created a Hoops Outfit and Accessories set for Julie which they released in 2007 but it was shortly retired in 2009. This new set is revised and looks different. I have added it to the Master List of Leaked AG Releases. ^_^

Please keep in mind that grey market leaks often have mismatched pieces or are not complete. But it does look like this set will at least have the jersey, shorts, socks, shoes, and basketball.
Julie's team name is the Jaguars and her number is #22. This was also on her original basketball outfit.
And you can't call it a basketball outfit without a basketball! ^_^
This is a stock photo of the original Hoops Outfit & Accessories released in 2007 for Julie. You can see it also has the Jaguars and #22 printed on the jersey. It also came with a small finger splint, a headband, and a bag for her items. It is possible the revised outfit will also include more accessories which are not shown in the leaked photos.
To be honest, I prefer the original 2007 basketball outfit for Julie because it seems to fit into her collection better. However, I am just glad AG is re-releasing this outfit period because it's an important part of her story and highlights an important issue of the time. I'm a completionist for the historical outfits so I'll be picking this up either way. ^_^ (Might wait to see if it goes on sale though...)
