Bad Jersey Sightings

Recommended Posts

I am part of a fantasy sports club at Penn State. We play IM sports all the time, but our teams are always named “Bust Mode.”

 

We wear bad jerseys because we can:

i own a genius Smith jets, 18$ for the higher quality fanatics one. 

 

We also have:

jamarcus Russell raiders

trent richardson browns

rashard mendenhall steelers

Tim Tebow broncos

justin Blackmon jaguars

RGIII redskins

ochocinco patriots 

 

that’s to name a few

I love this thread. It's full of examples that support why I will no longer buy a jersey featuring a current player. There are exceptions to this rule: a) you've got some personal, sentimental connection to a player b) the player is already a legend bound for the hall of fame. (I bought a Joe Mauer Twins jersey a few years ago, figuring it would be a safe bet.)

 

I came to this conclusion after several jersey misfires: a Vikings Randall Cunningham jersey bought in '99 (it's now well into the retro/kitsch zone, though, which makes it OK to wear again), a Twins Jacque Jones jersey (it was the only home alt. available at the time available in my size) and SEVERAL Adrian Peterson jerseys (Like Mauer, at the time I figured he was a safe bet. I was wrong.)

 

I now only buy blanks or throwbacks of Hall of Famers.

My youngest brother bought a Grayson Allen Jazz jersey at the start of last season. We kept trying to talk him into Gobert or Mitchell or even Ingles, but he insisted on getting an Allen. He’s now learned from his mistake. :P

I'm a proud owner of a Messier Canucks, Redden Senators, and Yashin Islanders.

 

They were cheap, and I think they're amazing sweaters to wear for fashion purposes.

 

I wouldn't consider a Redden Senators jersey bad. Now, a Redden Rangers jersey on the other hand...

I honestly don't see what is bad about this jersey. Unless there's some subtext I'm not getting.

The jersey itself, nothing, just its original wearer.

I suppose. He may not be Posey or Lincecum, but he still sent the Giants to the WS that year.

My point wasn't that the jersey is ugly, or Ishikawa was a bad player, it was that of all the player jerseys you would expect to see at a Giants game, Ishikawa isn't exactly up there with Posey, Lincecum, Bumgarner, Sandoval, etc.

This topic reminds me of a convo I had with a friend of mine on Discord back on April Fools Day, who'd gone to the Leafs @ Isles game earlier that day:

I've always loved the creamsicle Bucs jerseys. I bought one many years ago and was so pumped to finally have one. The player I chose... Josh Freeman.

Is a Jimmer Fredette Suns jersey a foul? I knew it wouldn’t last but I think he is just an interesting character from College/NBA history and couldn’t pass it up. Only other name I have on the back of a jersey is John Scott when he was in San Jose. (It’s also that oh so ugly stadium series look)

It's not bad if you like it, but it certainly isn't going to be a popular one in the crowd of Booker and Ayton.
