  1. I miss "Authentic jerseys"

    I do miss the days of the 1980s/90s when authentic jerseys for retail were made of the same materials of the on-field ones. I'm talking about when Rawlings, Russell Athletic, Champion Athletic supplied uniforms in those days.
  2. Thrift Store Gems 2017

    All I got was a 2001-14 Seattle Mariners road jersey for $10.
  3. Russell Athletic to cease producing uniforms

    I think that that's one of the thing they'll continue to make, based on the information in the article.
  4. Some sad news in the above article: Russell Athletic, which at one time supplied uniforms to many colleges/universities and even for teams in the professional ranks (MLB and NFL) will be transitioning away from unifrom manufacturing. The article states that the company will now focus on apparel for the consumer market, and their uniform division had been in serious decline since Nike and Under Armour began taking over the uniform contracts of many colleges/universities and pro leagues. It is sad that this is happening, I think. But not surprising, due to the aforementioned decline. They put out some good uniforms back in the day (and the pro jerseys they made for retail were pretty sturdy, too).
  5. I made a thread about this a decade ago, and since it's poor nettiqute to revive that thread, I've decided to make a new one. ----- I posted this in 2006: In the decade that has passed since I made that post, I've seen quite a few Nippon Pro Baseball retro jerseys sold in Japan, but CFL hasn't made much an effort to make throwback jerseys. Talk about a missed opportunity for the CFL....
  6. Thrift Store Gems 2017

    I found a Cleveland Indians T-shirt for $5 and a 1980s Edmonton Oilers jersey for $4; I will give the latter to a friend for his birthday next month.
  7. Thrift Store Gems 2017

    Got this Nippon Ham Fighters cap for $14, but it has a white front panel on it.
  8. Thrift Store Gems 2017

    I found a 2010 Seattle Seahawks game-cut jersey for $50 and a University of Wisconsin hockey jersey for $12, but since I have donated a lot of things @ my local Value Village (and have gotten a few "30% your purchase" cards as a result- I'm moving, is why), I ended up getting both jerseys for $47 after sales tax.
  9. Whatever happened to that "middle bar"-style facemask?

    Bringing this back- the guy who you saw wearing the 'nose bar' facemask @ Pitt, that's Adam Bisnowaty, who was drafted by the New York Giants and has kept that facemask.
  10. Scrubs in Stars' Jerseys

    Bringing back this topic: That's Cazzie Russell, the last player on the Lakers to wear both #32 before Magic Johnson (pictured) and #33 before Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.
  11. MLBers in Minor League rehab stints also NHLers

    ^ Dig the white shoes he has on (the Blue Jays could be one team that look great in them), but oddly, no stirrups (just sanitary socks). What's up with that?
  12. Players on the "RIGHT" Team, but "WRONG" Uniform That's Howard Cross, who spent his whole career with the New York Giants, and the 'retro-modern' togs of the Giants is his 'wrong' uniform (he is more synonymous with the LT/Simms era uniforms).
  13. Rare team matchups

    No game action pics, but June 2003 marked the only time these two sets met up (Anaheim Angels/Montreal Expos): vs
  14. Players on the "RIGHT" Team, but "WRONG" Uniform

    Willie "Stretch" McCovey (the namesake of AT&T Park's "McCovey Cove") finished his career from 1977-80, where it all began (and his 'right' team), the San Francisco Giants, albeit in their double-knit pullover jersey/beltless trouser combo.
  15. Players on the "RIGHT" Team, but "WRONG" Uniform

    Dwight Gooden, aka "Dr. K" was the last remaining player on the 1986 Mets team; this is him in the 1993-94 "Dodger script"-style Mets uniform (he's more associated with the 'racing stripe' style Mets uniforms).
