Searching for your 'whale'

Recommended Posts

Gah, I was willing to go much higher on that jersey but my laggy connection :censored:ed things up. Been trying to get one of these jerseys for decades, I have the '81-'85 road jersey and the '85-'93 home jersey, but I need the road version...

The hunt continues....

I get my shot at one of my biggest whales next weekend. The Riverdogs are throwing back to Charleston Rainbows pullovers from the 80s. They're auctioning them off after the game.

That has to be one of the most beautiful jerseys I have ever seen. Maybe I'll find one on Ebay or something.
I've been looking weekly for years. Good luck!

If I accomplish my whale this weekend, I'll sell ya my cheap Alomar replica!

FWIW, here's THE REST of the uniform.

Sweet! How much would you want for the Alomar jersey? And I guess a better question would be, what size is it? :P
WHALE ACCOMPLISHED!!!

how much?
Can't believe there werent a lot of bids on these.... I stole this one (the only # I wanted) for a Cool hundy.

Well done!

Nice to meet you last night Andy... and congrats!!! It was definitely a buyers market with the jerseys. Even without the proper caps or pants they looked sharp on the field!

That's the only thing that could've made the night better.

Besides the 1985-9 Saskatchewan Roughriders jersey, my other whale is this 1980s-era Toronto Argonauts jersey:

There was a jersey like it on ebay just now, but since somebody bid on it, I'm unlikely to win it. :(

How much was the bid going at? Too bad I can't bid on it, or I'd trade you for your New York Islanders "Fisherman" jersey. :hockeysmiley:

Lost a whale of mine yesterday. Champion Gheorghe Muresan Wizards jersey in a 48. I'm not sure I can stomach paying $81 for a replica.

$95?!? I haven't seen one go for under $200 in the decade I've been looking. Congratulations!

My whale. I didn't buy one in 2008 when the Rays wore this uniform, and regret it to this day. I've been looking for over five years, and the only place I've found it is a Japanese website.

While I lost my whale awhile back, I got a "baby whale" this week!

UPDATE: I found that 'Whale'; the Islanders jersey isn't for sale now.

Finally found my Cincinnati Bengals Carl Pickens jersey that I had been looking for. I collect strictly Bengals and Reds jerseys with an assortment of NHL jerseys. Also looking for a Kentucky Thoroughblades jersey, my favorite team as a kid, they are now the Worchester Sharks.

I am not a proficient jersey or cap collector by any means so I come here looking for advice. I really want an away John Randle jersey and thought it would be a relatively easy search but no such luck. Is this my "whale" or am I just horrible at searching? All I've found were no where near my size.

If anyone's searching for a WLAF Orlando Thunder jersey, I'd check eBay starting Sunday night,

It's insane to realize that the post above was the first in this thread this year.

I guess nobody's had luck so far this year

I captured a whale yesterday...sort of. Finally got my hands on an authentic Waldo kit with one problem: no nameset.

So if anyone knows of somewhere to get a nameset for this jersey, that's my new whale. :)
