Is there a RA on the shoulder? That's what they normally did with vests to show they were authentic.

A hodgepodge of jerseys I came across earlier today at Salvation Army (I bought nothing...but I was tempted)...sublimated Cutler-era Vandy

Party at Napoli's!  (given that the baseball fandom up here is pretty much split between the Brewers and Cubs, a Rangers jersey is a pretty rare sight...though then again, I recently saw somebody wearing a Blue Jays jersey...as Oscar Gamble would say, it be like it is...and if the silver portion of the lettering looks gold to you...well, it looked gold to me too.)

Got these two the same day from different thrift shops:


Edmonton Eskimos (CFL) jersey.
 
Thunder Bay Border Cats (Northwoods League) used these style Thunder Bay Whiskey Jacks (Northern League team in the 90's) jerseys for one game (were auctioned off for $50+)

I haven't had much luck with thrifting lately, but I was able to find an Arizona Diamondbacks batting practice cap for $2.

I've been looking for one of these old school Cardinals caps for a while and it's perfect--all white panels, red bill, button, and eyelets, and it's a snapback. $2 at my local Goodwill. 

 

However, I have a question about the "FRAM" embroidered on the back of the cap. Anyone know anything about this? It's an Annco hat with the old Team NFL tag still attached. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Fram is a brand of oil filters. The hat was likely part of a promotional giveaway associated with purchasing oil filters.

Thanks @sc49erfan15! I kept searching for "Fram" in relation to caps and the Cardinals. Suppose I could've just looked up the word in question and put two and two together. ?

Finally found t my Bucs gear at a local thrift shop. I always liked these stitched reebok jerseys. Any "time tested, mother approved" ways for removing the name/nameplate?

ha. is that a Josh Freeman jersey? seam ripper would be my only guess

Sure is haha, I don't like wearing jerseys with names on them so once I get this nameplate off it's a "Michael Husted" jersey (if anybody asks) haha257400.jpg

Seam ripper on the inside. Then a couple washes and the pinholes shouldn't be too bad.

I saw a Mike Alstott Buccaneers jersey, a Hank Aaron 1974 Braves jersey and a Team Sweden hockey jersey today. Couldn't have the time to get them today, and the first one was a bootleg, and the second one, being made by Mitchell and Ness, can be hard to tell whether it's a bootleg or not.

I ended up getting the Team Sweden hockey jersey today for $12. :)

Burlington had about 20 Carolina Panthers Nike authentic jerseys for $50... all of them blank, so I passed.

 

Also a bunch of USA soccer warmup jackets at $40-50. Nice stuff, but I also passed.

The Value Village here often has a bit of a baseball showcase in the spring, and a football showcase in September.  The street it's on, however, is currently undergoing some road work, so getting there is a hassle.  Figured I'd head over there regardless, and I did come across a few items of interest: a black Ray Lewis jersey, a few Eddie Lacy jerseys, a framed photo of the 96 Pack, and a bag of gumball helmets.  All I bought was the bag...though the champs' pic was tempting.

Found an old Penguins CCM jersey today for $7.49 but unfortunately it was a Small and I wear a Large.

The dazzle material looks looks so much better than the khaki colour it turned into with the Reebok Edge makeover.
