Unused 2000 NY Giants Jersey & Logo! (Pics)

Recommended Posts

This jersey popped up on eBay as part of a former player’s private collection and I couldn’t resist snapping it up... felt like unearthing a time capsule!

Those side panels would not have aged well at all, but that number font is perfect for the Giants. They should have kept it.

Is that the Joey Harrington Oregon jersey? Looks good, just not for the Giants.

Oh my god! It’s awful! What a find!

 

And yet it's a total upgrade over the Titans' current road jersey. Replace the red with columbia blue in that side panel, switch out the Giants logos on the sleeves and it totally looks like what the Titans should be wearing right now.

Right? I'm pretty sure that's the exact number font Nike did for Oregon around that time period.

Is there a shot with the full side panel? Would not have aged great with it but overall not a bad look.

 

I couldn't even wait until I actually received it to post pics! I will snap some side panel shots when it arrives.

Its funny you say that because the red swoosh immediately made me think of the current white Titans jersey.

The NFL jersey counterfeit market didn't really kick in until 03/04, well into the Reebok/NFL Equipment era. I've been buying/selling jerseys for about 15 years & I've never seen a counterfeit jersey from the 97-99 Nike NFL era tags, let along pro cut model.

I see where you're coming from, but this particular font fits with their logo while being appropriately classic and simple. It's more in the Bears/Texans category of custom fonts than the Bucs/Steelers category.

And no, that is not the Joey Harrington-Oregon-era Ducks number font. That was a(n overly) modified version of Handel, and was much more round in shape:

The NOB font matches that of the NYG Strahan jersey up above, reasonably ascertaining that the NYG jersey may well have been a legit prototype that got canned at the last second. (I have an original authentic Mark Brunell signed inaugural season jersey that in every way was the one they wore that season except for a slight difference in number font--they ultimately went with Wilson block numbers with the angled counters; mine does not have that particular font.)

 

Total side note: good gosh those Oregon jerseys were ghastly. I didn't realize until now that they were that bad.  Black (or really dark green) body, green sleeves, yellow side panels--sheesh.

Honestly, it looks good, but I figure somebody there took a long look or two and realized this didn't fit the Giants at all.

That number font fits pretty well though!

Agreed.  However, I think it would fit even better if:

 

1.  There was no serif/vertical turn on the bottom left corner of the 9, to match the bottom of the Y.

2.  There was no serif/vertical turn on the top left corner of the 2, to match the top left of the N and the Y. 

3.  There was no serif on the bottom right corner of the 2 (or the serif was curved, though this is probably the lesser option), to match the bottom of the Y.


Hopefully I explained this clearly enough.

Something like that just makes you like like you wanted to copy the Bears, but only had a freeware font.

Now that I think of it, I just thought it looked cool. Bears have some of favorite uniforms so.

If anyone know what font the numbers are, I’d be curious to see how the rest of the numbers would look.
