    Do we have any Jersey collectors in the house? I've been a HUGE jersey wearer and collector since the mid 90's, basically when I could afford to buy them. I have at least 50 jerseys in my collection, most authentic. Here are a few from my collection:

    I have both 49ers Patrick Willis pro bowl jerseys:

    [​IMG]

    I have several authentic throwback 49ers jerseys:

    I have several SF Giants Buster Posey all-star jerseys. Here are just a couple I have:

    [​IMG]

    I also have a few of the SF Giants World Series ring ceremony jerseys with the gold lettering. For 2010, I have Tim Lincecum, for 2012, I have Matt Cain and for 2014, I have Madison Bumgarner. I have a great many more Giants jerseys, but would probably use up the image bandwidth if I posted them all.

    I have a few authentic Kobe Bryant jerseys. I couldn't find an image of this particular one, but it's the 2009 NBA Finals jersey with the Larry O'Brien trophy stitched into it.

    [​IMG]

    I have a Magic Johnson USA Dream team jersey and a (not pictured) USA Alonzo Mourning jersey:

    [​IMG]

    I'm not afraid to let my geek flag fly high at comic conventions, and when not in costume, I sometimes sport these Green Lantern jerseys:

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]

    I also have a couple of Darth Maul jerseys:

    [​IMG]

    ...and I have shoes to match each and every one of these jerseys. :p 

    For the sake of this thread, I should take images of all my jerseys and post them, but the above just scratches the surface. I probably own more jerseys than shirts as my closet is full of this stuff. Although, I have a great deal more jerseys than what's shown above, I figured that this would be a good starting point to get this thread going.

    Funny thing- my wife hates my jerseys because whenever I wear them, I get a great deal of attention from other people, even women sometimes! For example, I wore the Magic Johnson USA Dream team jersey to a toy show a couple of weeks ago (of all places), and a great deal of people were complimenting me on it.

    I know there are a great many people out there that say grown men shouldn't wear jerseys, but nanny-nanny poo-doo. They can stick their heads in doo-doo. I wear whatever I damn well please AND I'm still looking for more cool jerseys to add to my collection! I feel like the General Grievous of jerseys, only without killing Jedi. :D 

    Are there any other jersey heads out there?

    I have three. Two Indians jerseys, one an older alternate Kluber and the other a home Lindor. I also have a home Durham Bulls jersey. I also have around 20+ caps I've collected over the years, mostly Indians. I can post pics later

    My personal favorite of mine that I own is a Super Bowl 43 edition Troy Polamalu. It's my favorite Steelers player of the new millennium, and it's got the best Super Bowl ever patched right on the shoulder.

    I also have a Sidney Crosby Winter Classic Penguins jersey. It's easily my second favorite that I have. It's so sharp to look at.

    I have a Saquon Barkley Penn State jersey. The best thing about Penn State jerseys is that they don't have names on the back so they have some longevity in terms of relevance.

    I'm not a big baseball fan, so I only have a Pittsburgh Pirates hat.

    I used to have a Chicago Bulls jersey for some reason. I only watched a little bit of their games when I was a kid, and even now I watch March Madness more than the NBA. I don't even remember what player it was because it wasn't Jordan, and it was after him.

    What I plan on getting:
    -I have my eye on this slick Mario Lemieux Stanley Cup era away jersey
    -I want to get another Penn State jersey. Probably a white one for "White Out" games.
    -I want to get a Steelers throwback jersey. I'm thinking Mean Joe Greene, Franco Harris, or Terry Bradshaw.

    Now this is my kind of thread! I got too many jerseys for a grown-ass man of 36, and my wife thinks I have an addiction, especially when it comes to NBA jerseys. I'll mostly pick up 'swingmans' [middle-tiered pricing] but wish I had more authentics in my collection.

    Got some old pics kicking around. **WARNING photo dump ahead!**

    Sylent's got the Magic? I got the MJ. Really wish this wasn't so damn inaccurate though.

    Got some more (VC/Raptor players who are no longer Raptors, Leafs' Sundin, Cowboys) but I think that's enough for now

    I have a bunch of jerseys, been selling a lot over the past year or so. Just sold my black Sharks jersey a couple of days ago. Probably have around 50 or so of NBA, NFL, MLB and some NHL left myself. Wouldn't say I collected them, I just bought what I liked and wore em. Usually holidays people would buy me jerseys so I have quite a few. Couple of my old ones I like, since I'm an Eagles fan. The Cunningham and Jackson jerseys are authentic.

    I've been checking out Pristine Auction. I don't want to sound like an advertisement, but if you want signed sports memorabilia, go to that website. Everything is authenticated, and you'd be surprised how cheap you can get some jerseys or helmets considering that they're autographed by big name players. They sponsor a podcast I listen to, so I decided to check them out. Now I can't decide if I want to frame a signed Terry Bradshaw jersey in my new room or a signed Evgeni Malkin jersey. I can probably only afford one!

    Pics or it doesn't exist. :p 

    For the longest time, I wanted a white Kobe Bryant Baseball jersey, and I used to see it on eBay, but the seller wanted way too much for it. I kept waiting for him to lower the price, but it finally disappeared. I suppose someone bought it... or the seller got tired of paying the listing fees.

    Over the weekend, I'll try to take pics of my collection and post everything.

    I've been eyeing a World Baseball Classic jersey for weeks now, but the authentic versions are around $350! No way, Jose! I'll wait for them to go down... hopefully. Since the USA won the championship, they might be more in-demand and expensive than ever.
