    Thrift Store Gems 2018

    I scored the 1980-88 Los Angeles Kings purple/gold jersey for $9.

    Found this Kintestu Buffaloes jersey (1997-2004) at Value Village for $12. This is just an example, not my jersey.

    Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    The two-time Super Bowl champion Dallas Cowboys defensive end Jim Jeffcoat played for the Buffalo Bills for the last three seasons of his career.

    Thrift Store Gems 2018

    So I found a bonanza of finds today: A 1989 UW Freedom Bowl (a long-defunct bowl game held @ Anaheim Stadium) jersey with the #11 and "MARTINSON" on the back, a 1980s Minnesota Vikings jersey w/the name "BUCHER" and the number 00 on it, an early 1980s NFC Pro Bowl jersey w/the #7, and a Tamarick Vanover Chiefs jersey.

    Atypical and Defunct Uniform Suppliers of Note

    For their first 20 years of existence (1960-80), the Dallas Cowboys' uniforms were supplied by the locally based (Terrell, Texas) Southland Athletic Company, which gave the team their uniquely-styled block numerals.

    ^ That was their best logo.

    Re: Starter: They also supplied jerseys to some NHL teams (and for all teams at retail) during the 1990s as well. I've stated in the past how Starter's NHL jerseys sold at retail were of VERY high quality, almost on par with the on-field models.

    No Fear also supplied the uniforms to the Arena Football League in the late 1990s.

    Re: Sand Knit: Yes. They were part of MacGregor from 1984ish until they went under in 1990; before that, they were owned by Medalist. Sand Knit's Berlin, Wisconsin plant was inherited by Ripon Athletic in 1992. You may not know this, but they provide uniforms to quite a few teams to the NFL and CFL as a silent partner; they just make them, and put Nike or Adidas' name on it when it's finished.

    CFL to bid adieu to Adidas after this season (2018)

    Two years ago, taking over from Reebok, which Adidas owns. It was more of a transition than a takeover than anything else, I believe.

    CFL to bid adieu to Adidas after this season (2018)

    I'd much rather see it go the latter route, if I had the choice, personally.
  14. http://3downnation.com/2018/06/15/adidas-cfl-apparel-sponsor-season/ - NEWSFLASH: Adidas will no longer be the CFL's uniform/apparel provider after this season. Who gets it next year? I'd say Nike, as I don't quite see Under Armour getting the contract due to their recent troubles (remember what happened with the MLB 2020 uniform contract). It'd make the most sense, thsuly, for Nike to team up with the CFL next season.

    Should I Get ESPN+?

    So I live in Washington state, and am considering getting ESPN+ (an online streaming service) to watch CFL games. The question is, should I do it and plunk down the few bucks for the subscription? Asking for some advice here. Thanks.
