    That too. Good call.

    -Green is a touch too dark -The shoulder and sleeves parts of the jersey should be mesh, not nylon -The neckline should be ribbed, not nylon -That gap between the V neck and body of the jersey (right under where the NFL shield should be) shouldn't be there. That vertical stitch in the gap is not always indicative of a fake jersey, but it's common to find on fakes -The numbers, sleeve logo (and name, I'm going to assume) should be heat pressed, not stitched -The number font also looks ever-so-slightly off -The font on the "1992 Randall Cunningham" tag is not even close, that patch should also be slightly smaller than the "NFL Throwbacks" patch, not larger -I'm not extremely familiar with the Jerome Brown patch, but compared to a legitimate M&N there should be some differences

    Definitely a counterfeit, but if you're happy at $10, I'm not gonna rain on your parade.
  4. Division 1 College Conference Realignment

    Also because the A-Sun is basically a revolving door. As of right now, it's a bunch of Florida teams (FGCU, Jacksonville, North Florida, Stetson), Kennesaw State (Atlanta), Lipscomb (Nashville), and NJIT because... reasons. North Alabama is also moving to the A-Sun. It seemed that the A-Sun was carving out some sort of geographical niche away from the SoCon/Big South (apart from NJIT) and abandoning the Carolinas/Virginia for FL/AL/TN/GA, but Liberty kinda proves that they'll pretty much take anyone, anywhere.
  5. Division 1 College Conference Realignment

    They wanted to explore their FBS football dreams and be able to host championships in other sports. The Big South wasn't allowing that. Liberty has been a conference powerhouse over the past 20ish years in Olympic sports and women's basketball. Those aren't the money makers, but hosting championships for those sports is important to them. They're hoping to play FBS independent football for a few years and be successful enough that the Sun Belt or C-USA finally relents and accepts them. Will it happen? I have no idea. But whether they spend the meantime in the Big South or A-Sun is pretty inconsequential. Travel is an issue - the closest A-Sun opponent (NJIT) is farther than the furthest Big South opponent (Charleston Southern), but apparently they'd rather host championships.

    With a ton more money and Young Earth Creationism.
  7. Division 1 College Conference Realignment

    If Liberty football is somewhat successful in FBS, maybe. I think that's what they're banking on/hoping for. I think there's something to be said that this is their only move in this decade or so of mass conference realignment. C-USA has taken ODU and UTSA from FCS, and the Sun Belt has taken App State, Coastal Carolina, Georgia Southern, Georgia State, and Texas State from FCS. Liberty has more money than they know what to do with. What's keeping them from an FBS conference? You decide.
  8. Division 1 College Conference Realignment

    Liberty has wanted to go FBS for a long time. They announced their (football-only) move up to FBS as an independent in February 2017, with all other sports staying in the Big South. One of the Big South bylaws basically says "full members must participate in the Big South in all sports the Big South offers." As the Big South offers football, Liberty would not remain a full member of the Big South - only an associate member. Only full members of the Big South can host conference championships, not associate members. Liberty wants to host championships and has some great facilities. The A-Sun was really their only option, no other conference seemed to want them. IMO (with possible Big South homerism) it's a downgrade for Liberty, but allows them to chase their FBS dragon (flames? dragon? get it LOL) while remaining a member in a conference that will presumably allow them to host championships. They're making some sacrifices in attempt to go to an FBS conference in all sports.

    Well, since it's now out in the open... http://www.aseaofred.com/liberty-to-make-major-conference-affiliation-announcement/ Liberty from the Big South to the Atlantic Sun in all sports except football.
  10. Division 1 College Conference Realignment

    Another announcement involving a full-time Big South member will take place tomorrow.

    I cringe every time I see a Joe Montana 49ers jersey with the drop-shadowed 1990s numbers. For some reason I don't feel the same way when a current player's name and number are put on an older jersey, like the Brady above.
  12. Thrift Store Gems 2018

    The Patriots never wore Wilson Staff jerseys at all, but retail authentics were made by many companies in the 1990s, regardless of which brand the team wore on the field. This does not change the fact that the jerseys are retail authentics. The only year Wilson Staff logos were used on NFL jerseys was in 1995. I can see the striping? I think? It's not a 1993-94 base, Flying Elvis was on the sleeves rather than shoulders for those years. And, again, Wilson Staff logos were only used on jerseys in the 1995 season.
  13. Thrift Store Gems 2018

    It's not "legitimate" for a number of reasons: Brady obviously never wore that jersey style, the Patriots weren't wearing that style jersey in 1994 when the 75th patch was worn, and the customization is a bit off (look at the difference in the "2" on the Brady and Martin - the Martin is correct), but I'm 99.9% sure it's not a counterfeit - just a legitimate blank, customized into a near-Frankenjersey. I don't think I've ever seen a counterfeit Wilson-Staff jersey, so I'm confident in saying at least the jersey itself (sans customization) is legitimate. The Martin looks good. The nameplate font is a bit off (oddly enough, the Brady nameplate looks correct), but lots of '90s retail authentics had font issues. All that said, nice pickups! Hopefully you scored a deal.
  14. New Carl's Jr./ Hardee's Logos

    Next time you go to a Hardee's, look at the logo on the drink lids. Can't find a pic (because, honestly, who takes a picture of their drink lid?), but they still feature the wordmark from the 1999-2006 logo: Over a decade and nobody's either noticed and/or cares.
  15. My Visit to the League HQ

    Decent amount of billboards and I think I've seen a few TV commercials. Most of that was advertising their special of 2 season tickets for $99.
