Representin' Obscure Teams

Recommended Posts

Oh man, I used to wear the hell out of my Watersmeet Nimrods shirt until I grew out of it. Had a nicer version of this logo

Great shirt.

I've also got shirts of the Minnesota Pipers and Baltimore Hustlers of the ABA, both of which were purchased through Throwback Max.

I was looking at that site a while back and found just the coolest Minnesota Pipers t-shirt on sale. Went back to buy it a couple days later and it was gone. You must have gotten to it before me.

They still have one, though unlike the one I own, this one is only one-color: http://www.throwbackmax.com/html/minnesota_pipers.html

I have a Saint Louis Ambush hat somewhere around the house.

You know it's obscure because a Google image search of "St. Louis Ambush" only brings up around 5 related images.

I am an Ambush "Kiel Center Inaugural Season 1994-1995" Pennant...I loved going to their games growing up

Other random items I have are a Dayton Bombers t-shirt, a Mississippi RiverKings jersey with the turtle dressed as a hunter with a shotgun, a Missouri/Show-Me Believes indoor football shirt, a St. Louis Swarm pennant and jersey (minor league basketball 1998-2000), a St. Paul Saints Irish Night t-shirt, Swing of the Quad Cities cap, and a Louisville Bats division champions shirt

You have no idea how jealous of you I am about that Pelicans cap. I've literally been looking for one for years and haven't been able to find one, other than a Japanese site that would charge me about $75. I did manage to find a Majestic Pelicans t-shirt, but it's a little worn and probably a bit too small.

I got them the Christmas after they wore them in 08, and I've never seen one since!

right now, sad to say, I don't have all that much in the way of obscurities...some money issues lately...anyway, a UW Whitewater football jersey (which I bought at a Warhawks game, and which fittingly bears no resemblance to UWW's actual jerseys) and a camouflage Lake Elsinore Storm cap. Suffice to say, the "have" list is much shorter than the wish list.

Same here, got my StP cap the August after they wore them, at International Plaza (which was the only place I could find them)

This is the only place I've found it, and I can't justify paying that much for a cap.

One more to add (for a team that never existed) -- a Baltimore Cardinals t-shirt from 1987 (when Bidwill flirted with Charm City before moving to Phoenix).

That one has seen some (relatively) recent action -- it was proudly worn when the Cardinals played the Steelers in the Super Bowl. Sadly, the game did not end as desired.

yeah, the one I was after was a black shirt with a distressed multicolor logo. a thousand times cooler than that grey one.

I would love to see a picture of that one.

The logos of pre-WWII NFL teams, AAFC teams and old Continental Football League teams interest me.

A bumper sticker from the old San Antonio Toros of the CFL:

Very few pre-WWII NFL teams had logos. Most of what you see ascribed to them was actually designed in the last decade or so.

I have over a thousand custom made gumball-sized football helmets from the WFL, USFL, XFL, WLAF, NFLE, Arena Football, lots of other indoor leagues and some obscure, smaller outdoor leagues like the SFL and RFL.

IIRC It was just the old Cards bird head with Baltimore across the top. I think the NFL put the kibosh on them quick...maybe a week after they showed up in stores.

I've seen some legit pre-war logos by looking through old game programs or photos. Which have had logos designed in the last decade?

Oh I once had almost all the USFL teams pennants...I rescued them from a smokey club basement. Then I got the brilliant idea to clean them...then I had a worthless pile of felt.

I have an early-2000s CSK VVS Samara (Russian Air Force) jersey. The player's name and number (Denis Ezhov; a guy who was drafted by the Sabres in 2003 but never cracked the NHL) adds to the obscurity.
