  1. In light of the recent news regarding the death of CFL legend Larry Highbaugh (RIP), here he is in his early years before he embarked on his legendary Edmonton Eskimo career, as a BC Lion.
  2. Mookie Wilson, the hero of the 1986 World Series for the New York Mets, played the last three years of his career as a Toronto Blue Jay.
  3. ^ Yes. They are also known by that name in the Pacific Northwest; the same company operates as Savers elsewhere outside the aforementioned areas.
  4. The Seattle Seahawks also had a charity basketball team called the "Rainhawks" in their early years. I agree with ClayStation about NFL teams playing other sports (like basketball and softball) to keep the league exposure a year-round one. It's all in good fun, too.
  5. Never mind, actually. I just checked it just moments ago, and it's back up as of Monday morning.
  6. Well, since everybody is doing it, I'll jump in. (Personal Note: This is my 1000th post on this forum. :D)
  7. Well, as of this very moment, the uniform database from the National Baseball Hall of Fame called "Dressed to the Nines" is down. I accessed it today, and it said "No website is configured at this address." How sad.
  8. I wouldn't mind seeing the Vancouver Canucks back in the 1990s-era skate logo jerseys.
  9. Will say this before, and will say it again: The New York Mets should go back to wearing the racing stripe uniform set. For the road set, I'd use the 1988-90 "NEW YORK" block lettering jersey. I think that the racing stripes convey speed, IMO, and look quite great. I mean, not everything in baseball has to be so traditional.
  10. Not too long ago, Paul Lukas posted in his Uni Watch blog that pylons weren't always used in the endzone to denote it. The above picture, from the late 1960s, is such an example of what was used before the pylons: Pointed flags! Which raises a Q on my end: When did they switch from flags to the pylons we see today in the endzones? Methinks sometime in the 1970s.
  11. One final find on my CA trek: A 90s Washington Redskins jersey w/ the #61 and the name WILSON for $24. Who is this WILSON guy, I wonder? EDIT: It's likely a custom jersey. It was made by Starter.
  12. Another day, another find: A Peyton Manning Broncos jersey for $25.
  13. I found a Joe Montana jersey for $6.
  14. I found a Yomiuri Giants jersey for $30 today, but I passed it up. It was too small for me.
  15. You mean me? Oh, I still post on this thread every so often. For instance, I recently found a few caps.
