That's one impressive haul.

 

What's the logo on the blue jacket right at the front?

That looks like Cedar Point amusement park. 

 

 

I picked up one of these today for about $30.

One of my favorite ever jerseys. It's the brand Pro Player (which I've never heard of), and is crazy thick and durable. It's in relatively rough shape, though. One of the shoulder patches is pretty loose and the main crest has a bit of damage. It almost looks like it's a jersey someone wore for pickup games. But it's nothing a needle and thread won't fix.

^ Nice. To further expand on Pro Player, they were Fruit of the Loom's activewear brand, and they took over the NHL replica jersey business from Starter, which made the retail jerseys of a very high quality. :)

I had a Koho replica Kovalchuk in that style.  That thing was CRAZY comfortable.  And it looked damn good,  too.  

 

Every time one shows up I kick myself for getting rid of mine.

Pro Player made the on-ice jerseys for something like half of the league (not including the Thrashers) for the 1999-00 season. That was the extent of their involvement with the NHL's jerseys.

Just purchased this Dalton jersey at a store for $20. It has embroidered numbers and looks like an on-field cut. Any idea where this jersey is from?

My last finds of 2016 were fairly good: A Pittsburgh Pirates black alternate jersey of Brandon Inge (!) and a Reebok Everett Silvertips jersey (with the 10th anniversary logos on the shoulders) for $28 combined.

This jersey is definitely direct from the Bengals. Teams often dump game-cut and game-worn jerseys through websites or stadium store sales. I am unsure if it was worn or not, but obviously, Dalton was not a Bengal in 2009 (see the 09 tag on the inside collar). Based on the 2009 roster, this jersey was originally made for practice squad WR Maurice Purify, and features an altered, after-market Dalton nameplate added to the back. The sleeve cut is a match, could be the very jersey in this pic:

Bit of a bummer its altered considering Purify became a great AFL receiver, but still an incredible find! Where in Buffalo did you snag this? I used to have the WNY market darn-near cornered in my college days, never snagged a gem like this

Thanks, I actually found it in some small antique store about an hour south of the city in Elicottville. I was very surprised to find a Dalton jersey there lol

Went to the 3 bigger local thrift stores yesterday and found ... nothing.

 

Tried on a Whiskey Jacks t-shirt but it was too small; not one hockey jersey there of any major or minor league - just some unremarkable blank and screen printed ones.  Think I saw a button up Yankees baseball jersey with "NEW YORK" screened on front, a larger Vikings jerseys with a player's name and number (forgot who) and a couple of replica soccer jerseys that were mildly interesting.

Only thing I considered buying but ended up passing on was a CCM Canucks toque - black, yellow and red with a pom-pom and with the large skate logo on it.

 

Met up with a friend of mine yesterday.  In exchange for me customizing (#47 - Komarov) a blank Leafs jersey for his son in the near future I did get this Chicago sweater and Winnipeg Falcons jersey:
