Now Benti posted his jersey rankings. I agree on some but the Wilfork ranking seemed a little low considering he is one of the best nose tackles in the league… This got me wondering… Who has the better jersey collection between me and Benti?
I am an old school throwback type of guy. I know Benti is the same way and I love that. I rock jerseys that represent my team and are also very styling. I might rock a jersey not representing Boston, just because I know when I go out people are going to say “Damn, look at that kids jersey!” (It does happen all the time..)
Let’s get this started. I am going to divide up my jerseys into specific categories. Benti can do the same. I am pretty confident that in the end, my collection will rise above his (by a slim margin).
Michael Jordan Authentic North Carolina
In my opinion, this jersey is a must. At least one Jordan jersey is a must. This jersey just looks good. I am not a North Carolina fan, but I am a sports fan. I feel like there is no way that any real die hard sports fan can’t have one Jordan jersey in the collection.
Richard Seymour Georgia Jersey
This jersey used to be a favorite of mine. I am surprised the Patriots traded away Big-Sey but it had to be done. I have a red Georgia throwback Seymour jersey.. name on the back of it and all.
Matt Ryan Boston College Jersey
White Replica Ryan BC jersey. This isn’t your typical college replica though.. The name is on the back plate on the back of the jersey and there is a BC (gold and maroon) ACC Patch on the front of the jersey in perfect form.
Vince Wilfork throwback University of Miami signed jersey
Vince Wilfork is my boy. That is why in my basement hangs a white Miami throwback number 75 jersey with the ‘Wilfork’ on the back of it. He is a legend in my household and I support this signed jersey proudly in my ‘Man Town’.
Doug Flutie throwback BC signed jersey
Right above the Wilfork jersey hangs my signed authentic #22 Doug Flutie maroon Boston College 1984 jersey. Growing up a BC fan this jersey is a must in my collection.
Non-Throwback College Jerseys
Premier WVU Noel Devine navy jersey
This jersey is very special to me because my brother and sister chipped in together to buy it for me shortly after I decided on WVU. It is an awesome jersey and the way Noel has been running this year I will have no problem rocking this jersey throughout the next four years even after he is gone.
Devin Ebanks yellow WVU Basketball jersey
Now this jersey is clutch for many different reasons. First off, it is yellow. The WVU student section is yellow so it is a double whammy and will be a good jersey to wear while also helping me blend into the school spirited yellow student section. It is number 3.. Number 3 is a fairly common basketball number and seeing there is a good chance Ebanks will bolt for the draft after this year… chances are some one else will wear number three throughout my four-year tenure at Dub V.
Derrick Williams white Penn State jersey
This jersey used to mean a lot to me. I bought it with money won in a $80 dollar Poker hand (the hand added a lot of drama) I got it his freshman year at Penn State so I was able to rock it for a solid four years while rooting on the Nittany Lions.
Paul Pierce Green Swingman
Paul Pierce is my generations Larry Bird. The jersey will never be out of style and that means a lot to my collection. Paul is the truth and I love it!
Throwback Kevin McHale White Swingman
I had wanted this jersey for so long so when I finally had the dough to make it happen I was so pumped. I have worn this jersey to many Celtics games including game one of the 2008 NBA Finals. I love this McHale jersey and it gets me a lot of compliments.
NBA Throwback Jerseys
Darius Miles throwback Cleveland Cavaliers
This jersey is just amazing. Remember back in the day when the Cavs rocked the Black, baby blue and orange jerseys? Well I have a white throwback swingman D. Miles jersey. Bad ass? Yup.
Jalen Rose throwback Chicago Bulls (Cursive)
The Red number 5 Jalen Rose swingman Chicago Bulls throwback. You know the version where Chicago is in cursive? This jersey is nothing more then one of those jerseys that just looks fresh to death. I love this jersey.
Allen Iverson Philadelphia 76ers Throwback (Washington Nationals)
This jersey was cheap… But it is still an Iverson (Future Hall of famer) Throwback. The old school ‘Nats’ across the chest is BAD ASS. (Picture above right)
Ron Artest Throback Pacers Jersey
This jersey is just crazy. Number 91 Throwback Pacers Artest jersey. If you can have an Artest Jersey… why not right? This swingman jersey just makes people laugh.
New England Patriots jerseys
Red Throwback Replicas
ous reasons. He is the best quarterback to play the game. The red number 12 is just so nice looking and the red is definitely different.
This jersey is very special to me. I wore it to the Sunday night game versus Buffalo when Bruschi led the Pats onto the field versus the Bills in his first game after suffering from a stroke. No Patriot fan doesn’t have a Bruschi in their collection.
Normal Patriots jerseys
Navy Vince Wilfork signed
This jersey is signed but I still rock it out because I have my Miami one framed. Vince is my boy. I feel Benti didn’t give him the credit he is due in the rankings. To be honest.
Boston Red Sox jerseys
Dustin Pedroia new 2009 Authentic Away
I love these jerseys. They have an old school throwback feel yet they are our normal away jerseys. Pedroia is the man. Hands down. I am very happy to add this jersey to my collection.
Pedro Martinez Authentic throwback home jersey
I am so pissed I didn’t bring this jersey to WVU just for piss and giggles. Pedro is a Red Sox legend. I will never throw this jersey away (even though it is gradually turning darker and becoming tighter) I love it. Pedro is one of the all time greats and this is a great jersey.
JD Drew/Trot Nixon Authentic Home Jersey
This jersey was purchased when Nixon was on the Sox. It is a good jersey though because #7 is common and it doesn’t have the name on it so it can now be used as a Drew jersey (although who wants a Nancy Drew jersey anyways)
The Papelbon Collection
I have loved Papelbon ever since his rookie year. I bought authentic gray (road) and white (home) jerseys before he was a proven pitcher. I have the throwback All Star jerseys from 2006 (Pittsburgh- Black/Red/White/Yellow) and 2007 (San Fransisco–Orange/Black/Cream) these jerseys are awesome but its too bad he’ll be gone soon..
Throwback NHL Jerseys
Wayne Gretzky Mitchell and Ness Edmonton Oilers Jersey- Blue.
For what I paid – $175- I am happy people comment on this jersey. We are talking authentic royal blue with orange numbers- stitched name and C on chest. I love this jersey and I often whip it out.
Whoa.. That’s a lot of jerseys. I wear a jersey maybe 3 times a week. People tend to love my jerseys– I do too. Sports fans are supposed to have a wide range of jerseys- which I think I do have…
OK Benti now let’s hear why your jersey collection is NOT better then mine..
“Half the game is how you look”
