On a FB group I belong to a person got a 95/96 game worn Mighty Ducks at a Salvation Army... it was beyond filthy and unsalvageable. 

 

We need pics of that.

Hi! New to this group and looking for some info on this jersey. Seem a homeless dude wear it into a Goodwill Outlet take it off, throw it in a bin and put on a new shirt. Thinking maybe it's team issued? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Jason Marshall! Solid "let's remember some 90's guys" name. What a shame!

There’s a 100% chance someone’s grandma could get those stains out.

They may not be able to get it "good as new," but definitely still salvageable, IMO.

Didn't get a pic, but at the Cedar Falls Ross there was a 2018 Italy jersey. It must have been authentic or their "primeknit" stuff because it stretched out more than what a normal one would have.

I can't say I expected to see a Philadelphia/Adirondack/Lehigh Valley Phantoms sweater in a Calgary Goodwill...

I could probably clean that up in an hour with some of the stuff I got at home. I've taken acrlyic paint and oil out of some of these jerseys.

Felt similarly when I found a Parramanta Eels shirt/jersey in a Thunder Bay 2nd hand shop.

(similar to this but with 3/4 sleeves)

and a pair of Rio Grande Killer Bees blankets in a local thrift store.

Hit the jackpot this past week, including an official NFL game ball signed by Drew Bledsoe for $10 :)

I've got a Caps jersey with a nacho cheese stain that has been holding on for years.  It's on the stitched logo on the front.  Any recommendations?  It's not a terrible stain at this point, but its one of those things that I always notice.

What store are you going to for these?  

 

Just all the standard thrift stores - Salvation Army, Goodwill, Savers, etc... from what I've heard, garage sales are 10x better, I'm gonna start checking those out this spring

Like some grandma just started selling her grandsons collection. Don't some of y'all feel bad?

 

I think I'd do the same. Lol

 

My buddy moved away from his Boston childhood home at 18. Now some 20 years later, the new era caps and trading cards are still there. I sense the collection could be sold for as little as $20. Even when each cap is worth $20-$30. It is what it is. You gotta let family know the significance of what you own at some point.

I'm not sure of some of the stuff I have at home, it's just concoctions I've made over the years.... but if you have a place called Dollar Tree near you I'd take a look in there for a product caLLED "Totally Awesome". Its a spray bottle of yellowish fluid. I'd spray the hell out of it, then rub some oxyclean gel (you can get that at walmart, its a stick type of thing) into it---use a brush and try to follow the "grain" of the fabric.

 

After that throw it in the wash for a good soak. Most might come out. If it's on a white part- maybe one of those tide bleach pens would work too.

Scored these awesome 80's ice cream bowl helmets a few days back (not the quarter machine ones, a great deal larger)... a few shells are cracked and two facemasks are missing, but the whole league set (plus an updated Jets shell) for $3.49 is pretty sweet! :)

Sweet! You should strip the logos from the old Jets, put the Bills stripes and logos on the white helmet, then take the Chiefs stuff off the burgundy helmet and put them on red.

 

Yeah - the OCD kicked in 😂

Yeah but our Packers in 49ers gold WTF! It reminds me of my college shirt collection I started in the 80s. Stanford, Alabama were red shirts. Crimson not a color? Washington Purple and Yellow, no gold?
