The best Turn Ahead the Clock uniforms were the Yankees'.

Screw them. They were allergic to fun.

 

You know what's great fun?  Looking good.  The Yankees win that one.

Nabbed this cool ECHL CCM jacket... something about it feels league/team issued, not bad for $5!

Just shooting a guess but that looks like it could be an off-ice officials jacket. I worked for an ECHL team a few years back and our off-ice officials were given branded jackets in a similar style jackets.

One of these days, if I find one of those TATC uniforms, I will get one. :D (I would prefer the Mariners model, of course.)

Speaking of TATC jerseys, for anyone else who owns one, do you actually wear it? If so, what do you wear underneath it? The quasi-sleeves always look so strange the way they jut out and don't rest on my arms. It makes me feel like I'm wearing a Lady Gaga outfit or something from a sci-fi movie. I've tried a long-sleeve and short sleeve tee, as well as a hoodie under neath and nothing looks right.

Kinda looks like Blutarsky from Animal House

I found a San Francisco Giants 1990s batting practice jersey recently for only a few dollars. It looks like it's been used in some capacity, but I'm not sure how. It's also got the #5 on the back.

I started looking at old rosters to figure out who wore this jersey for the Giants, and, yeah... It's a Darryl Hamilton jersey, so that's super weird. Not too sure how much I wanna wear it anymore.

Not a thrift store find but I scored this off of eBay for a low price.

I had to look up why you'd be hesitant to wear a Darryl Hamilton jersey....and now I know. How'd I miss that?

I have a Steve McNair jersey I stopped wearing after what happened there, too. It just seems kinda disrespectful, I guess? Bad juju, too.

$17 for the jersey.  at one point was actively searching for this one at a half decent price. P1040304_zpsxjjw3pqb.jpg

$1 for the hat (voted worst minor league hockey logo by The Hockey News 2 years running)

It'd be a lot more gorgeous if the stripes weren't flipped on the body

Western Michigan Whitecaps 3930 for $6 in near mint condition. The local minor baseball association (Little League) is the Whitecaps, and it was on the rack right next to one of their caps. I'm thinking that a coach or parent needed a cap and they didn't have one of the team-issued ones, so they went online and got one. This one is an official MiLB one with the Tigers' D on the back, and is the most comfortable hat I've ever worn.

Right, I totally forgot about this, but about 2 months ago I was walking around in a strip mall waiting for my haircut appointment.  I walked over to a place that had a pretty cool sports store in it.  I spotted a sewn-on, authentic looking purple Shannon Sharpe jersey from the 2000s.  I asked the guy behind the counter how much he wanted for it, he said it wasn't his but that another guy was actually selling it.  I asked the seller how much he wanted for it, and he said $75.  It's not exactly "Thrift Store," but I consider it a good deal for that jersey.  Pics to come once I get home.

Not a jersey, but I got the Super Bowl XXVII game program for a buck.

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.
