What is wrong with cargo shorts?

Everything is wrong with cargo shorts. As is wearing a jersey if you're older than 10 years old.

Why do you need all those pockets? And I get your hate for grown men wearing jerseys, but what you wear to SEC football games is different than what's common to wear to sporting events in the rest of the country. I'll wear a team polo to football/basketball games here, but I'll wear a jersey whenever I go to a pro game.

I love cargo shorts..... way more than those hideous plaid board shorts everyone wears now.

But then again I have a very drastic curve on my baseball caps too, so I might be stuck in the late 90s. Oh well.

Amen to that (besides the pro jerseys). Maybe I'm that way because nearly everyone wears nice clothes to a SEC game, regardless of the sport.

Only the finest wife beater or tuxedo T-shirt with the fewest gravy stains will do. And of course, the least scuffed "Cocks" baseball cap.

I missed out on getting the Ohio State Vapor Talon cleats and Ohio State Lunar TR1 trainers this year. Im looking for them in size 14.

Also I know these were on field gloves only but I have seen a few pairs on Ebay so I know that there out there. I'm looking for the Vapor Jet 2.0 glove in size XL. IT's the only pair of Ohio State gloves I'm missing from my collection

My goal is to get one style (authentic) of every jersey Steve Young ever wore in college and the pros, in a size 44/46/48 or M/L. I don't get hung up on different manufacturers (the 49ers wore Russell, Wilson, Reebok, and Adidas during Young's tenure, I'm not that picky). I need:

BYU road white

1984 LA Express home blue & road white

1985 LA Express home blue & road white

Tampa Bay Buccaneers road white

1994 49ers throwback home red & road white w/ NFL 75th anniversary patch

1998 49ers home red & road white w/ 49ers 50th anniversary patch (one-year thicker number style)

1992-94 Pro Bowl blue (only differences are the patches, not that hung up on details)

1997-98 Pro Bowl white (same as above)

Basically, I have the standard 1980s/90s 49ers red and white, late-90s 49ers red and white, Buccaneers orange, BYU blue, and a 1996 Pro Bowl. Looking for everything else.

Additionally... it's a Sports Specialties cap that was popular in the late '80s and early '90s. The plain (two-color) "snapbacks" came out in the '80s, and they proceeded to come out with corduroy, white, black, pinstripe, fitted and many other versions. I'm a fan. Have some originals I probably should have sold when they came back.

I had a Bulls corduroy from them. Still miss that thing since it broke last year.

A Manitoba Moose jersey in 44 / 46. I don't think they even exist :(

They're out there. They are a tough find though.

That work for you?

Yep and SportsK has 'em too. I really want an authentic, though, so if I go premier it'll be because absolutely none have popped up. Thanks, though.

Hello, new to the community here, although I've been lurking for a while.

I am not a jersey collector, but I wouldn't mind having an old Oklahoma City Blazers jersey from the 1960s. Can't imagine there are any around. I was about 7 or 8 the first time I went to a hockey game in OKC. Didn't realize how good some of these players were. I think that for a brief part of their first season, the Blazers had both Gerry Cheevers and Bernie Parent on their roster. 2 future HOF goalies, playing in 1966ish OKC...anyway, I have seen a few on here talk about places that can make a jersey, but I never have found anyone name such a place? Is that off-limits? I suppose that would be the next best thing for me. If anyone has any suggestions please let me know - thanks!

Thanks for the info. Also, I know the team. I probably should have said that. I was looking for things like when it was made, rarity, authenticity. I think I'lll trust the tag with authenticity.

Yes, that looks legit. No one ever faked those, although many companies have brought out their own variations of those caps in the past few years... Reebok, Nike, Adidas, Mitchell & Ness...

Anyway, that looks just like the inside of my red Bulls cap I bought in the '90s. BillyB, I also had the corduroy version. Probably still do somewhere, but it sat way too high on my head. The regular red somehow has managed to stay wearable after all this time, unlike some of my other ones.
