Searching for your 'whale'


Recommended Posts

The alt from this set has joined my list of Whales. If anybody has an L or XL they are looking to move, let me know. I've had a hell of a time finding one on eBay.

I found one on Ebay for $12....landed it at 2 am in the morning.

The negatives of it....

It had the RUBBER NUMBERING that you can't remove...its thick rubber.

It had an attorney's ad on the shoulder that says "Sponsored by _______, Attorney at Law" I just used a sharpie on the white thread, and then you can't see it anymore.

But still one of my FAVORITE jerseys, because it's easily the THICKEST jersey I've ever worn. Their home and away were not as thick as this....

My search is over! I finally got my 1986-93 UND Fighting Sioux jersey in the mail yesterday. It's a pretty good feeling, I know others that have found their whale in this thread can attest to that.

However, I feel like there will be something else down the road I'll want to find, but whatever it is won't come close to this one.

Ok, I know what you need to find next. This'll be tough, if not impossible. A late 90's/ early 00's randy moss or cris carter Vikings jersey. Good luck with that! All of these hardcore Viking fans hang onto those jerseys for dear life. No way you will find two or three of each of them at any given time you walk into any thrift store or garage sale in the tri state area. Nope, noooo way.

Edit: to make things interesting, just try to pair it with a culpepper jersey.

They apparently get rid of those jerseys like they're trash, meanwhile in 1998, 15 year old Chris couldn't get one because they were sold out at Scheel's. But tell me this: In your many travels to these stores of thrift, how many Jake Reed jerseys have there been? Something to think about.

Not a jersey, but I found this in a drawer in my spare room last night. No idea when I got it but since it says "The Senators Are Back" on the back and has the pre-centurion logo I have to assume it dates to early 1991 or so.

It's an XL so I've probably never worn it. I wonder if it might worth something if I hang onto it a little longer...

The best part about that shirt? Still not out-of-date.

We all missed the boat in the mid-2000s, when a whole bunch of blank XFL replicas popped up on eBay. You can still get some teams, but I haven't seen an Outlaws one in forever, though I snagged an L.A. Xtreme one and had EPS turn it into a beautiful Tommy Maddox jersey.

Extremely jealous.... I don't have many but I like the jerseys that are different and not everyone has.... I snagged a Steve Young LA Express jersey with the original tags on it about 4 years ago... never worn it too nervous to hurt it
