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?

That looks almost like the Ron Wolf proposal. Sorry - Packjacked!

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 ūüėā

This would free up the two extra facemasks for the Saints and Bucs too lol.

Officially back to thrifting regularly... some highlights from the week - an awesome Chalk Line jacket with an old school Navy logo and a super gaudy 90's Bills leather jacket:

Found a bunch of game cut-style football jerseys in Play It Again Sports for $10 a pop. There were 2 Oregon, 2 Ole Miss, a Penn State, and Texas Tech football; plus a Maryland basketball and Oregon practice-style basketball jersey.

 

I thought I had hit a gold mine, but then noticed the Ole Miss font on one of the jerseys looked off. I Googled them and found similar examples of every jersey I saw for sale on Ebay or somewhere else.

 

Example:

So... someone is out there counterfeiting game-cut NCAA football jerseys. The materials were high quality and there were believable tags on both the inside and outside. I'm more familiar with NFL tagging, but this stuff looked good. Had it not been for the font, I probably would've been fooled.

I thought I recognized these from somewhere and, sure enough, I remembered. They come from this Nike Team catalog on page 9. I’m assuming the jersey you found was made by Nike as a spec to show off at trade shows and to other schools, etc. Probably has very little value, though.

Wow! That's great - so I guess these were some type of salesman's sample. The materials felt too good to be fakes, but I couldn't get around that font. Thanks!

Been noticing this a lot on eBay lately. People order catalog jerseys with school names and sometimes logos, then try to pass them off as game worn or team issued jerseys, even though they aren't even close to the on field stuff.


Would be interested in seeing the Oregon jerseys if you get a chance to post!

It was just like this one. Same number and everything. One was a M, one was a L.

Damn. I would feel so awkward checking out with 14 super bowl hats.

at the old Sports Consignment at Independence Coliseum Shopping Center we had a regular who would dump adidas, puma, and umbro show samples (usually in my size) that i would snap up as unique one-offs.  perfect quality at minimal prices.

Even if they're semi-common samples, a jersey this clean of a major team will always have a market. At the right price, I would snap these up for resale all day. The frustrating finds are the jerseys that in every way resemble a major program, but that are conveniently missing the logos/wordmarks that would make them more valuable!

Anywhere you would recommend looking for legitimate game worn/team issued gear?

If you know how to spot a legit gamer, eBay is still by far the best spot.

Yeah, I might swing by once I have a chance (in the middle of moving at the moment) and see if they're still there.

Replying to this again just because I found about a dozen¬†Cardinals Nike polos¬†that it turns out belonged to a now-Bills assistant coach... he packed it, brought it all the way up here, and THEN donated it all ūüėā
