Thrift Store Gems 2017

Recommended Posts

Just went for a walk and a local was having a garage sale. 

 

Not bad for three bucks. I think I can bleach that stain out

Here's my most recent find for $9.99. I've been hitting up Value Village a lot more often lately and it's been paying off. It's funny though because I was never a big fan of this jersey but it looks way nicer in person than I would have expected. That's happened to me a few times where I don't really like a jersey but then see it in real life and get a better appreciation for it.

I also saw an old Champion Charlotte Hornets Alonzo Mourning jersey. I considered buying that to sell on eBay but I wasn't sure that I'd make any money off of it.

Game-used 1974-1975 Virginia Squires ABA jersey for $4 at one of my regular thrift store stops. They usually have nothing.

Sweet Jeebus! That's a once in a lifetime find. I probably would've needed new underpants once I saw that on the rack. Congrats!

I almost started crying. To have gone into that place hundreds of times and to have leafed through thousands of youth rec league and church league and other worthless jerseys and to never have found so much as a Champion or Mitchell and Ness ... yeah, couldn't believe my eyes. They didn't know what they had, clearly.

I thought this cricket jersey that I found today was pretty neat. Unfortunately it was one size too small for me.

Anyone recognize this team?
Wondering if it is minor league or if it is some lower level team.

Would think somewhere around minor or collegiate since what slo-pitch/softball team would be interested in and could afford a specialty jersey (pink - breast cancer).

 

Be something to wear if my Slo-pitch team plays in the Fun tournament this year.
Before he "retired" one long time guy player from the league wore pink pants for that tournament year after year.

$3 minus 30% off ain't going to break the bank in any case.
