Thrift Store Gems '09

Picked this up earlier tonight at Goodwill for $5.50. I think its a replica but the jersey material is thicker than my other Champion jerseys and is a thinner cut on the sides in comparison with another college jersey I have made by Champion.

I can't read the size tag, but it looks like XL - which means I think you have an early-mid '90s Champion authentic on your hands. The heavier-looking screenprinting and micromesh looks different than anything I've ever seen.

Either way, great pickup for a five-spot.

I saw (didn't buy) a warmup jacket, presumably basketball (or could be cheerleeading) with the letters SIU on them. The trim colors were black and red -- not the current Southern Illinois maroon.

This was the same kind of scratchy double-knit common in the 70s and before. Ideas?

Wooo, got a score today!

A Koho Maple Leafs Alternate from Value Village for $20 bucks! I had been tracking a Lindros Leafs on ebay, think I'll get this one crested instead

But Eric, Lindros only wore the RBK branded one, not the Koho!

BTW, msg me and I will talk to you about a cresting deal. =P

I was on ebay today and came across some cool stuff from this one seller. It's not dirt cheap, but I wouldn't expect to find Tupelo T-Rex jerseys anywhere anymore. $25 for a rare jersey isn't too bad. I'd love to have the CCCP jofa helmet, but I'd want to actually wear it in games. They have stuff from movies too.

I need to find some of these stores down here in the Dallas area. The Marshall's across the road from my neighborhood only has white Roy Williams 31# jerseys in stock. When I lived in Indianapolis, Value City was an awesome store to find all kinds of deals.

I didn't pick it up at a thrift store, but instead off of the clearance rack at my local sporting goods store. It is a Russell dealer sample of the jersey that the West team wore in the 2008 Little League World Series. It was only $6 after tax.

I saw a Sixers jersey from the 1990s (the one that Charles Barkley hated).

It was the red version of this.

I think it was a pro-cut (the tags said a +2), but it was too small for me, and had been washed in hard water too many times. Not for me.

Sweet mother, you really missed an opportunity to make some cash there. :blink: :blink:
