Your first jersey...

Recommended Posts

A number 84 Washington Redskins jersey. No name on back, but at the time Gary Clark was a member of the Skins. No clue where my parents bought it from, but my 7 year old heart didn't care it was the greatest gift ever........ until I got a Super Nintendo that summer with Street Fighter 2 :P

Normally I'd say the Redskins jersey and SNES are equal, but Street Fighter 2 gives the SNES the nod in my book. It isn't even a contest if SF2 has M.Bison.

I asked for a LaDainian Tomlinson jersey for Christmas 2002, based only on the word of a classmate who said Ladainian was the best player in the league. As a Redskins fan with no Internet or cable, I had never even heard of him, much less seen him play. But I had blind faith in this kid, so come Christmas morning, I got this jersey.

I know that the powder blue jersey the Chargers have now is better, but I can't say I like it a fraction of the amount of how much I like the one in my post.

In what universe is that true? B) The Chargers current powder blue is nowhere near as good as the one pictured in your post.

i agree the old powder blue throwbacks were so much better than the currents that are trying to be every uniform the chargers have worn at once

Man, they got you at birth. Can't turn your back on the Ducks and Chiefs now.

Blank, $8 on eBay. I always thought that the Rags had arched nameplates.

My first jersey was a white mesh Seahawks #80 (no name) replica jersey for Xmas 1986...

My first authentic jersey was a Pat Falloon San Jose Sharks jersey from their first season. I decided I liked their jerseys enough to get the name and number of their first draft pick (in hopes he would turn out great)...

It's been so long, I'm not sure what actually came first, but it's between a generic Mets pullover jersey, a Yankees one, and a purple Charlotte Hornets #1 Muggsy Bogues jersey.

Why? Because 1) Everybody had Bulls ones, and 2) They didn't sell Drazen Petrovic jerseys in Chicago.

I still have the 2nd jersey I ever bought, a LogoAthletic Chargers Junior Seau. It's aged and worn, but it looks fantastic.

Christmas Day 1991, road Minnesota North Stars (black) Modano, still have it!

Haha no way!

My first jersey was also a Black Minnesota North Stars replica that I picked out on boxing day 1991 :P. It was the first time I saw the teams new look and although I wasn't a fan of the change, I still wanted a jersey with green.

I got my first Rangers jersey (away, blank) when I was 9 years old...2 years before the Cup win. Every other kid was wearing Canucks crap in 1994. It was the greatest moment of my life, up until I got to dress my daughter in her first jersey.
