Bizarro Russian Bootleg Basketball Warmup Jersey with 17 Different Sports Logos

Recommended Posts

A couple years ago I found the absolutely insane basketball warmup jersey below that was made in Russia. It has 17 different sports logos embroidered on it, most if not all of them American or American influenced. One funny aspect of these logos is even though this is a basketball warmup jersey and most of the logos are basketball related, 7 of them are baseball related. So you have a mixture of both basketball and baseball logos, and two logos are ripoffs of WNBA logos. Below is a photo of the front of the jersey followed by closeup photos of all the logos that appear on it. As you'll see some of them are pretty hilarious, my favorite being a "69" version of an old 76ers logo. You can't make this stuff up! Here are the pics:

I didn't know there was a limit to how many photos you can put in one post so the above logos appear on the left side of the jersey, I will post the right side logos in a second post to this thread.

Note how it says "Harlem Street League" and then "Made in Russia" immediately below it. I think that's my favorite detail about this thing.

The sad thing is that somewhere in China a counterfeiter is gonna make a Chinese bootleg of it.

These were everywhere in the early-mid 2000s. Not often as hilarious as this, but the "urban wear" (their title, not mine) stores in my hometown that didn't have official merchandise were loaded with these.
