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 an hoping to get it photomatched or authenticated (even though its an obvious gamer), I think it might be worth auctioning through a memorabilia specialty site :)

 

Scored this off Facebook for $40 this morning:

This is a thrift store gem, sort of. Well, a Poshmark find. Certainly a gem in some way.

Man I would not mind getting hit by Sean Taylor while sliding for the first down marker for that jersey

It sold for $400 the same day I bought it for $40! 😅

Not a "thrift store" find per se, but a local company did a huge buyout of 25+ years of Bills backlogged equipment... snagged all this yesterday:

Was able to snag this Bears starter striker jacket off LetGo for $30. Had to drive an hour out to the northwest Chicago burbs, but I think it was worth it. Love it

Unused my ass, the Ditka bear was actually a common sight in the late 80s to the mid 90s, IIRC it even briefly replaced the C at midfield.  My uncle sent me a Bears Starter jacket with the Ditka bear on the back when he was stationed in Korea.

Sweden Euro 2012 Home + Barnsely 14/15 home + Denver Nuggets M&N cap just for 2,75zł which is around 70 cents (but of course you should count this like a $2,75):

Never had seen that logo before.  The mothership has it as an unused logo.  Seems like a nice collector's item

 

Chicago Bears (1993 - 1993)

Yeah that version of the Bear head was used extensively as a secondary logo in the 1980's and early 90's. 

 

I actually prefer it to the retro orange bear head logo that the Bears currently use because the current one looks more like a tiger than a Bear. 

 

I can't tell you how many times I've been wearing one of my orange Bear head caps and someone here on the east coast said "So, you're a Bengals fan huh!?“

I found four caps: A Yokohama Taiyo Whales (today's Yokohama DeNA Baystars) one, a Bellingham Mariners (the former "Baby Ms" Minor League Club of the Mariners from 1977-94; it's based on their 1987-92 cap) one, a Washington Huskies cap, and a 1977-80 Seattle Mariners cap. :D

Not really a thrift store find, but I was given a 4th of July FLORIDA Marlins cap as a gift.
