  1. 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.
  2. Thrift Store Gems 2017

    Got this Nippon Ham Fighters cap for $14, but it has a white front panel on it.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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?
  7. Players on the "RIGHT" Team, but "WRONG" Uniform

    http://cache1.asset-cache.net/xr/103408277.jpg?v=1&c=IWSAsset&k=3&d=77BFBA49EF87892102A727B1636DE2E6E37E9FAD27A1FFE9C4C5037D7D9AE79B9E5F81B0557B7927E30A760B0D811297 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).
  8. Rare team matchups

    No game action pics, but June 2003 marked the only time these two sets met up (Anaheim Angels/Montreal Expos): vs
  9. 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.
  10. 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).
  11. Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    In fairness to Mr. Stewart's Dodger tenure, he did win his first World Series title with them in 1981.
  12. Thrift Store Gems 2017

    Not much, just the above Arizona Diamondbacks cap for $4.
  13. Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    He may have played for the Reds for quite a while, but this is his 'wrong' uniform for his Reds tenure, the current set:
  14. 2017 CFL Uniforms

    Re: Mr.Negative15: The Argos uniform set pictured was worn from 1981-88. But I do agree that it is the best the Argos have looked.
  15. 2017 CFL Uniforms

    I did mention my fave Saskatchewan Roughrider look a few posts up, but to me, for my primary team (the B.C. Lions- I live in the Seattle area, which is within the Leos' proximity), the B.C. Lions- this, their uniform set from 1978-89 stands as the best they've looked.
