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.

That is a nice Angels hat.  Would have been a good alternate. That scheme may not have worked for everyone in 1997 (remember the "Periwinkle in baseball?????" talk) but it would certainly work today.

This seems like the right place to ask: Other than eBay, what websites are there that you can buy used jerseys and other sports wear?

haven't bought anything there yet but have been made aware of this site:
https://sidelineswap.com/

 

Found that one out from one of the hockey jersey pages on Facebook:
There are many different groups on Facebook that I am aware of that have a sale section for hockey jerseys - most seem to be or either lean towards or are exclusively game worn and authentic jerseys though (mostly out of my price range).

can sometimes find cheaper ones sometimes on "NOT Game Worn Hockey Jersey Collectors."
You can find postings for a variety of sports jerseys on "Thrift central".

This wasn't a thrift store find, but not sure if it has a home elsewhere... a 2003 game-worn Raiders jersey of my for-some-reason-all-time favorite player, Rob Johnson:

I suppose this applies to this thread, right?

 

 

You might want to check...I do believe the Rodman with red hair is a rare alternate and might be worth some good $$$.

Haven't had time to photograph much yet, but dropped close to a grand thrifting during Memorial Day... just a crazy amount of jerseys... this is probably the standout - a 91/92 Adidas AC Milan jersey!

Okay, this might be one of the most unusual finds on this topic.

Apparently the '94 FIBA World Championships released a mixtape(???) and I was able to scoop it for $1 at a thrift store in Raleigh. (Weird, considering the championships were played in Toronto.)

There's even a schedule inside featuring Dream Team II.

It's been a while since I found something, but I got a Frank Wycheck Titans jersey for $8.

I hate when I see the trim of what would be an awesome find and get my hopes up...

...only to realize that it's an uncrested jersey :mad:

This has happened to me way too many times. First the Sabres red third, then the Rangers Lady Liberty, and now this!

 

 

But I did find this Galatasary jersey on the same trip to Value Village which I snatched up in a hurry. Odd find geographically speaking but I'm not complaining!

 At a giant flea market and resale shop in Hot Springs, AR I've found these two vintage beauties in my first two minutes of being here. The helmet one has a copyright of 1975 on it is notable for the rare Giants "NY" helmet, while the other is 1977 hand along the sides have the two conferences represented by helmets, including Seattle and Tampa Bay, while the Giants is now the familiar underlined script. I'll post more pics if I find anything else of note.

I decided to stop by Shopko for the first time in quite some time the other day, and along the way I saw a Salvation Army store had opened near there.  Honestly, I was tempted to take a stab at flipping some of what I didn't buy: a couple Chivas jerseys, a Jagermeister hockey jersey, a TON of blank jerseys (mostly youth sized)...speaking of blanks, I kinda wish I'd thought to myself "youth and high school teams gotta buy their uniforms from somewhere,don't they?" earlier in my life...in any event, I bought a blank jersey and a somewhat surprising find given the huge glut of stuff I could tell was from Illinois: a Racine Raiders alumni tee (which I'm not sure I'm ever gonna wear in public, given I've never played for them...much like at least a few people have said of my concepts, I might just look at it and never wear it)

Nabbed these two jerseys together for $30 total... crazy how much better the quality is on the old CCM replicas vs the RBK version:

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.

About three years ago, I found a circa 1997 Leon Lett Cowboys Champion jersey at a Marshalls near Rochester, NY. Weirdest find of my life.

They're the best place to get stuff that is a season or two old and still new. But sometimes the price point isn't the best imo, especially at Maxx, things can get a little spendy.
