you guys ever find anything interesting at places like Marshall's or TJ Maxx?  Those are the only things that sort of pass as a "resale story" where I am and trying to figure out whether its worth it to take a look. 

 

I always look there, and Ross, but it's been a long time since I found anything. Like not even "nah I don't want this" but they've really dried up for licensed team merch around here, even local pro and college teams. But over the years I've gotten great stuff at places like that and Value City before them (RIP). For a while now their men's active racks are basically un-logo'ed Nike, Adidas, Reebok, and off-brand shirts.

 

I did recently see a Wales UA Rugby jersey at Ross. Sadly they only had sizes to fit a really small child.

I did find a whole bunch of authentic New Era fitted caps at Ross the last time I went. I picked up a brand-new Marlins fitted for $10, well worth it when they go for $35 everywhere else.

I was able to find these two random oddballs at our local Ross about 3 years ago. Don't see too many Andray Blatche jerseys floating around.

A trip to my local Plato's Closet yielded these 2 gems: 

 

The Winged Angels I'll definitely keep as it's from my favorite Angels uniform set.  

The Brewers will probably go to the Bay of E.

I love that Brewers hat as I'm a huge Brewers fan. Switch the hat and brim colors on the Angels hat and I have it

Is that a Pierre Thomas Saints jersey lurking back there as well?

Yes it is/was! Good eye! The swoosh-branded shirt just to the left of it was a blank, solid black replica-quality jersey with the NFL shield on the front. I presume it was intended to be a Falcons throwback that was a blem of some kind and never made it the printing phase.

Found these beauties at Value Village for 2 bucks a piece. I was pretty stoked to see the Tennessee Oilers because of the rarity- only to realize after I left the store that the bottom left of it is cut off. 

 

I started expanding on my small pennant collection from when I was a kid to put on the ceiling on my man-cave/garage, but I don't have enough that it looks good yet. These will help.

Went to Plato's closet yesterday and found a brand new (with tags) 2014/15 Scotland Soccer Home jersey for $16.

Huge fan of the tartan pattern on the sleeve cuffs.

Tartan pattern is also a panel that goes down the side.

Certainly was. It even had the original tags on it too. I was incredibly pleased with the find.

Not exactly a thrift shop, but there was one each of these on CCM's end of the year close out list. Was able to snag both and some Fleury goal twigs on an amazing deal.

Once-in-a-lifetime finds this morning... I popped into a random pawn shop today and almost walked right past the rack of obviously fake jerseys... I took a minute to sift through the rack and found these three gems for $20 a pop! I am 100% sure the first two are game-worn, 50/50 on the 3rd, but I need some help!

 

First is a 2014 Cordy Glenn Bills gamer with heavy game use:

Second is an odd find for the Buffalo area - what appears to be a 1980's vintage game-worn Houston Oilers jersey (any help on the player/year is appreciated!):

The third one is a home run either way, but a goldmine if its a gamer... a Michael Peca Sabres jersey, circa 96/97 since there is no captain patch... several puck marks:

It shows he never played a game so it's game issued not game worn technically, there is no way of telling if the Peca jersey is game worn without a CoA

I don't think that's a gamer.  The numbers are all jacked up.
