Found a Patrick Willis 49ers jersey for $20, but I couldn't afford it nor can I like the 49ers "Elite 51" Nike jerseys.

 

There was also a Bernie Kosar Cowboys jersey as well for that same price, and a mid-1990s Texas Rangers jersey.

Looking forward to cutting this out and turning it into some kind of matted/framed piece this summer :)

Do you have tips on how to look for and find pieces like those on websites like eBay or Etsy? Being from Europe that's my only option to score me some great and cheap stuff!

I occasionally like to look on sites like Ebay for "phantom merchandise" and other unique memorabilia and I found this.  

 

s-l1600.jpg

Two things came to mind when I saw this. 

 

1. It's the exact same as The Patriots version. Even down to the outline colors(which are usually the biggest change for "phantom Merchandise"). 

Maybe I'm thinking too much into it, but could the Super Bowl logo change have played a part in the bland & indistinct(between the 2 teams) design?  

 

2. It's missing the Reebok logo. 

 

In case anyone is interested in the listing:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Reebok-ST-LOUIS-RAMS-ERROR-2001-Super-Bowl-XXXVI-Locker-Room-Shirt-Lg-Patriots/362229647886?hash=item545691ca0e:g:rjwAAOSw9V1ac1nD

 

-Just to be clear, not something I'm selling(someone else is), just something I came across while browsing.

I wouldn't be surprised if the outlines were the same, even if the Dolphins played the Vikings. That was just how things were that year. 'Murica everywhere.

I found a Daniel Descalso Themerabase that I assume was used by him as he is local.  He played for the D'backs in 2017 so it had to been used during one of the throwback nights.

Awesome find! I have scored Bills training camp gear with player names on occasion, always exciting
