Not "thrift" pickups (I've lived in Canada and Australia over the past 2 years - not great for thrift shopping), but I had to post this. I've purchased some of my top 10 favorite pieces of sports merch recently - Despite not being a baseball fan, I love the lime green Rays jersey. I'm assuming it's just a fashion jersey? I've never seen it referred to as a batting practice jersey and never seen any players wearing it. I've still got my eyes open for the other version - which has purple pinstripes instead of blue.

 

I've been actively looking at all Chalk Line jackets for the past few years and have never seen either of the Patriots or Buccaneers varsity jackets elsewhere - I did accidentally ruin the Patriots jacket by ignoring the dry clean only directions arghhh.

 

Shaq was my favorite player growing up, so I was looking for a cheap MPLS jersey on eBay. I wasn't aware that Reebok did "D'funkd" - a fauxback range that used satin and velour materials for the jerseys. I have a soft spot for the "cringey baggy sportswear in early 2000s music video", so I had to scoop this up.

 

The Manitoba Moose jersey was a nod to D3. I loved the scene where all the kids wear different jerseys - one of the players wears a Minnesota Moose jersey. Love the logo, and lived in Canada so that's my justification for my retail therapy habit.

 

The Hornets satin chalk line probably has the most sentimental value because I found the organic way - at a thrift shop when I lived in downtown Toronto. I like how the color actually has a teal tinted hue (not just plain cyan), and how the outline of the Hornet is purple (and not black). Not historically accurate, but I like those details.

Not a thrift store find, but I got this beauty for free from Kia Canada. I run the social media at my dealership and they sent me this for running ads and contests during the Memorial Cup. Not a big fan of the Storm's new logo, but a nice uni nonetheless. Nick Suzuki's autograph on there as well, which is awesome for me as a Habs fan.

Why haven't I shared this yet? I have an Instagram page with some of my best finds @lockerswap716

 

Didn’t want to wait til the sales Thursday & deal with those insane 4th of July sales crowd... scored a hat trick (and 4 jerseys):

As most people now i'm a HUGE SMS/Missouri State Bears fan, so when this was available i jumped at it. I don't know if these ever actually made the field but still like it.

Bruins new third jersey? or just a prototype? I don't know. I got this jersey from someone who have acquaintances in Fanatics' factory (Indonesia). I got the Bruins' jersey for 120,000 IDR (8.5 USD), and I also got Blackhawks Adidas jersey (nameless) for 270,000 IDR (19.10 USD)

So this isn’t exactly a Thrift Store Gem, as it’s more of a come up, but I didn’t really know where else to put this and it’s pretty cool. 

 

Sac Republic is building a brand new case for all of their community awards and their 2014 USL Championship trophy, and decided to get rid of the original stand they had the USL trophy sitting on. They were going to just trash it, but I figured I could get some good use out of it so I lugged the thing back home.

Now I can say I put my drinks and mail on a part of Sacramento sports championship history 😂

I'm in my hometown of St. Louis for some much needed vacation and family time. (Oh, and I'm seeing Cage the Elephant and Beck on Tuesday night!) I stopped by Plato's Closet today (or, I guess yesterday, as it's currently 1AM) and was pumped to have found these two brand new hats for $8 a pop. I'm pretty sure I let out an audible gasp followed by a quiet "yes!" when I saw the North Stars cap. Also, tax free weekend. So, not a bad first day of vacation.

I know I haven't find time to venture into thrift stores lately, but I found a Dave Casper #87 Raiders jersey and a Darryl Dawkins 76ers jersey (RIP) for $25 altogether! :D

Have you ventured to Avalon Exchange on the Delmar Loop before? Scored a '96 Grant Hill All-Star jersey for $15 there about four years ago. Usually have a steady stream of 90's jerseys, Starter jackets, and REO Speedwagon concert tees!

I have not. It sounds awesome, though. I'll definitely have to check it out next time I'm up there. Thanks!

And today, I come up with more: A B.C. Lions windbreaker and a 1980 Team USA hockey "Miracle on Ice" jersey for $16 altogether. They were half off today. :D

I don't even want to know how much you paid for this, or how much you're flipping it for.

 

This is a lie. I do.

I also did see a Deacon Jones jersey "dress", a Troy Aikman jersey among others, but I passed on them.
