Thrift Store Gems 2020

Recommended Posts

Continuing this annual tradition....

 

A day before 2020 started, I got a Notre Dame game-cut football jersey for $25. :D

Well I’ve started the new year off well as far as thrifting goes. I found this ‘96-‘06 Sabres jersey with the original sales tags still attached for $16.99! It’s an XL which is too big for me so I’ll be looking to flip it but still an exciting find nonetheless.

My find of the year might have already happened two days into January:

So with something like this, do you flip it or frame it? Just curious.

I actually found a matching team-issued & signed Tomlinson away jersey a few months back... both will likely hit eBay eventually!

It's been a while since I found a good Minor League Baseball cap, but I got an older Eugene Emeralds cap for $5 today. :D

I found a San Francisco 49ers mini-helmet in its box that I later sold, and a New York Mets BP cap (blue crown, orange bill, and the orange w/white outline NY on it).

Wouldn’t consider it a gem by any means but I was surprised to see a Kevin Kolb Cardinals at Value Village today.

So I had a good day: I got Lehigh Valley Ironpigs Saturday "bacon" cap for $4, and uncrested jerseys of the Atlanta Braves and New York Yankees for $15. I hope I can crest them one day. :D

I have bought so many number kits over the years to letter jerseys & still haven't worked up the courage to try!

^ Aah. I usually leave the jerseys w/o a number or name, when possible due to my personal policy (I believe that leaving the jersey w/o those things gives off the impression that you are representing the whole team, and not just one player).

 

Oddly, the jerseys also had the MLB logo on the rear collar intact.

I saw a 1972-78 Boston Red Sox jersey, but I passed on it because it was too big for me.

Picked up one of these barely worn off eBay for $15. I’ve always thought it would make a good Sunday home cap.

The local Burlington Coat Factory occasionally sells New Era '47 MVP adjustable Montreal Expos hats. I picked one up for $8.

In addition, I went to a few Marshalls in Northern VA and Rockville, MD, in which they're selling various Washington Nationals hats for $10. The hats on sale include, but not limited to the 2017 postseason patch on the side panel, the block "W" in the red hat or white hat variety, spring training hats from 2018 and 2019, and 2019 World Series championship hats.
