  1. Thrift Store Gems 2018

    Another year, another thread full of thrift store finds. ---- Post away right here. This text is just a placeholder.
  2. Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    The wrongest of all wrong uniforms: Wendel Clark in the "Fisherman" New York Islanders set.
  3. Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    ^ That's Jake Arietta.
  4. Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    The face of the Angels franchise in the 21st century, Jered Weaver, had a very short stay with the Padres before quietly hanging them up last year.
  5. Players on the "RIGHT" Team, but "WRONG" Uniform

    To me, Willie Stargell (pictured here clean-shaven!) will be more associated with both of the Pirates' double-knit pullover jersey/beltless trouser combo sets of the 1970s and 80s (as he spent much of his career wearing them from 1970-82), than the traditional vest set pictured here (he spent his first 8 seasons, 1962-70 wearing them).
  6. Mitchell and Ness can go to H E C K

    To further my point in my earlier post, this late 1990s Chargers jersey has the wider TV numbers that was used by Sand-Knit. The jersey was 'made' by Starter, but they, alongside Nike, Adidas, and Reebok later, were actually made by Ripon Athletic, which as aforementioned, inherited the Sand-Knit plant in 1992.
  7. Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    The great Redskin running back Brian Mitchell played for three of the four NFC East teams (including the 'Skins). Here he is as an Eagle..... ...and as a Giant.
  8. Russell Athletic jerseys question

    During the early 1990s, some Russell Athletic-made jerseys (for baseball, football and basketball as well) had something called "Intera" fabric. What kind of fabric was this, and what made it so special then? Just asking.
  9. The 2006 BC Lions Grey Cup championship team had a hot mess for their look.
  10. Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    And Boog wore this set during his tenure with the Indians.
  11. Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    The fearsome Steelers linebacker Greg Lloyd finished out his career in a Carolina Panther uniform in 1998.
  12. The number font change (to Futura Bold Condensed to match the helmets) took place in 1997.
  13. Local TV station logos

    WFSB's 1980s logo was pretty good, as well.
  14. New Best Buy logo

    Personally, when I saw this post, I imagined the 'slide-whistle' sound that plays when this space is landed on. XD
  15. How can after pepsi uses the retro packaging....

    Personally, I prefer that Pepsi logo in the original post with the rounded typeface used from 1986-91 (used in the Diet Pepsi cans in that post).
  16. Could this be a candidate for their worst look ever? (From 1999)
  17. The Ti-Cats had a weird look in 1999, when they won the Grey Cup.
  18. The Argos wore this look in their 1983 Grey Cup championship. As far as the Argos' looks go, this is as good as it gets.
  19. Mitchell and Ness can go to H E C K

    This kind of brings up a point that I've noticed. During the pre-Nike/Reebok era of NFL uniforms, the individual manufacturers (Russell, Sand-Knit, Champion, what have you) had different styles of block numerals. This is Russell's block numerals. Note how thin the TV numbers on the shoulders are..... that of Sand-Knit/Starter/Ripon athletics; the TV numbers on the sleeves here are a bit wider than that of Russell Athletic's. Wilson's TV numbers on this example were more on par with that of Russell Athletic's here. And we all know about Champion's funky stock block numerals with the diagonal '2'. Just throwing this out here, a few observations of mine.
  20. Thrift Store Gems 2018

    I saw a few jerseys today: Johnny Manziel (Browns), Ed Reed (Ravens) and Vernon Davis (49ers). Passed on them as the latter two were counterfeit.
  21. Thrift Store Gems 2018

    I found a Joe Montana jersey for $3.49 and a Calvin Johnson jersey for $13, but I could only get the Montana jersey.
  22. Oh, the Seattle Supersonics.... how we miss thee..... and how we miss those uniforms, as well. (1979)
  23. Unpopular Opinion: They won two in a row with these: And now, two CFL entries, first the 1985 Grey Cup Champion BC Lions: And the 1989 Grey Cup Champion Saskatchewan Roughriders:
  24. Players on the "RIGHT" Team, but "WRONG" Uniform

    Speaking of Roberto Luongo, presstart66, regarding his Vancouver Canucks tenure: This is his right Vancouver uniform. And here's his "wrong" one, which he wore only during his first season there.
