Homer Jersey Swap?: Anyone interested? I have a couple extra St. Louis Blues and St. Louis Rams jerseys, plus more. I'd love to trade with a spofi member in a Homer for Homer jersey swap. Each person would incur thier own shipping charge. I'm interested in any Rugby, Soccer, or minor league sweaters (hockey, ncaa hockey, baseball). Email me if you'd like to swap.

OK, time to get rid of a few old presents from relatives, mainly 'cos they're the wrong size. I'll take offers from Bo or anyone else on: - England cricket ODI shirt (dark blue, Vodaphone), circa 1999, never worn, suit large-ish person - what looks like an England football training shirt, white with red/blue stripes and three lions badge. Also large-ish. - a Malcolm X Philosophy Football t-shirt, black (of course), quote on front, number 10 and name on back

Malcolm X Philosophy Football t-shirt Surely that should be 'Malcolm XI'... Thank you. I'm here all week.

posted by JJ at 04:33 PM on January 30

Ive got some minor league baseball jerseys, i would gladly trade for some more obscure football jerseys. semi-pro, small college, etc. not novelty shirts. All due respect to malcolm, but a white guy in southern indiana with a malcolm x shirt would just look like a poser.

If anyone has a 49ers or cardinals throwback, they'd like to part with, tell me what you'd like in trade.

Eli, I think you mean the Football cardinals, but I do have a St. Louis Baseball Cardinals Cooperstown Collection #1, if interested.

St. Louis Blues t-shirt-type jersey. #666, Dark Lord.

posted by holden at 05:47 PM on January 30

What size bo, and what can i interest you in, this shit-cold january night, in exchange. ...btw, Who likes the football cardinals? (yes i know i specified in a previous thread that i wanted football jerseys, but wtf, i wouldnt have baseball jerseys to trade if i didnt want them, now would i?)

posted by elijahin24 at 05:54 PM on January 30

Holden, if you can get that shirt off of Ozzy, I'll take it. Although I might need a herion addiction to get my weight down. eli, Whatcha got? Tag says XXL, but it has been worn and washed so it fits more like a XL. I'm 5'10" 235lbs and it fits me fine.

posted by BoKnows at 06:04 PM on January 30

damn bo, that sucks, im quite a bit smaller than you. I will tell what i have to negotiate with, i have some minor league baseball jerseys, mostly single A teams, most have been game worn. i have a new with tags chad pennington jersey. it was sent to me by mistake in an ebay auction and the seller said keep it, but i dont like the j-e-t-s. sorry cjets. I have a west virginia football jersey(pretty new), a florida state jersey(pretty used) and an all but new scott rollen cardinals jersey that i will likely never wear again. most are size medium or large, but a few xl. let the bidding commence. (and now a message from my wife) p.s. To anyone who thins out my husbands jersey collection, thank you elijahin's wife

I've got a Bruins away jersey that I will happily trade for anything that will help me forget the humiliation of that night in San Jose. Worn once and never again, so help me God.

I've got a Bruins away jersey that I will happily trade You and 6 million other New Englanders.

posted by yerfatma at 07:28 PM on January 30

Owlhouse, I'd love to trade with you for that cricket shirt. What size is it? It says XL. Might fit you. Don't forget there'll be overseas postage on any trade with me. Unfortunately your gear looks a bit big. Can we do a three way trade? Because: i have a new with tags chad pennington jersey elijahin has something I could use. For obvious reasons if you view my profile.

posted by owlhouse at 08:09 PM on January 30

Size, LBB? I'll have to look, but I believe it's large. Maybe medium, but if so, it's a large medium. Great idea, this jersey swap thing, by the way.

posted by lil_brown_bat at 08:33 PM on January 30

I like a good three way, owlhouse. If elijahin wants something of mine, I'm game for the XL cricket shirt. You're up to bat eli.

posted by BoKnows at 08:46 PM on January 30

By the way, USPS has a Priority Mail box that is $11.95 for international shipping. A neatly folded jersey could fit in it pretty well. Sorry, owlhouse, I don't know your options.

posted by BoKnows at 09:15 PM on January 30

Should be much the same, only I pay the postage in Pacific pesos. Eli - are you in on this? Pick something of Bo's and we're gonna be like baseball teams at trade deadline time.

sorry guys i was watching the facists- ahem republicans debate. yeah bo, what do you have in an XL or smaller (preferably smaller)

posted by elijahin24 at 09:45 PM on January 30

Eli, here's two pictures of that Cardinals Jersey. The only other thing I have in XL is a #32 Ricky Watters Philadelphia Eagles white replica jersey. (And the Rams/Blues jerseys listed near the top.) Sorry, I was the "fat kid".

posted by BoKnows at 09:56 PM on January 30

Dont feel bad bo, i was the exact oppisite and it isnt cool either. College scouts came to seem me and said things like "son i love your tenacity, and your tackling fundamentals are outstanding, but you wont last one play in the big ten."..."big east"..."mac"..."missouri valley conference"... you get the idea..."without getting broken." im a little bigger now, but not by alot. I think we need a fourth angle on this trade. I should point out that the pennington jersey is authentic. Everything on it is sewn on. with elastic down the sides, and around the sleeves. Its a really sharp jersey.

posted by elijahin24 at 10:06 PM on January 30

If you guys want to swap, go ahead. I won't feel bad. Sniff. I'm a guessing the SpoFi morning crew might have more to add.

posted by BoKnows at 10:19 PM on January 30

Thing is bo, he really doesnt have anything i want.

posted by elijahin24 at 10:20 PM on January 30

I wouldn't mind having that Pennington jersey, but unless you are into video games, Spawn comics (I'm not giving up my #1), or McFarlane figures (I've got a 3 inch Rice that came in a two-pack with Pennington), I don't have anything to trade.

posted by MrFrisby at 10:38 PM on January 30

Thing is bo, he really doesnt have anything i want. Alright, I wasn't going to offer it up, but I need that Pennington jersey. How about: - An XXL Solomon Islands World Cup qualifier football shirt?

posted by owlhouse at 12:15 AM on January 31

I've got a 2XL Pat Tillman Arizona Cardinals white jersey, still in the plastic wrap if anyone is interested.

posted by tommytrump at 08:29 AM on January 31

I take an extra medium, but all your favorite teams suck ;)

posted by scully at 08:39 AM on January 31

Anyone interested in an Islanders Gordon's Fisherman era jersey? I think it has Kirk Muller's number on it.

posted by HATER 187 at 09:30 AM on January 31

Hater, I feel like I'm the only person alive who liked that design. I'm wondering if I have anything I could swap you for it. Let me think.

posted by chicobangs at 11:17 AM on January 31

Where's Fraze been? This sounds like it's right up his alley.

posted by hawkguy at 11:27 AM on January 31

I think it has Kirk Muller's number on it. If it was any other Kirk Muller jersey I would be interested. But the only thing I have to trade is a cheap Hershey Bears replica from about 8 years ago.

posted by goddam at 11:35 AM on January 31

Goddam, what size is the Hershey Bears jersey? Anything of mine interest you?

posted by BoKnows at 12:53 PM on January 31

Hater- what do you want for that Islanders jersey?

posted by BoKnows at 12:56 PM on January 31

Tommytrump - any extra London Knights jersey in your closet?

posted by BoKnows at 01:22 PM on January 31

Sorry Bo, no Knights stuff, but I might have a London Tigers baseball cap somewhere in the house. There might even be a Werewolves of London cap here too, somewhere!

posted by tommytrump at 02:26 PM on January 31

How about the Lindros jersey for the Fishstick jersey, Hater?

posted by BoKnows at 06:39 PM on January 31

Bo, the Bears jersey is a large. (front, back) Which is why I'm looking to get rid of it, as my fat ass can't fit in it anymore.

posted by goddam at 08:50 PM on January 31

Large is good. Does anything of mine interest you? I have a few friends that played for the Bears.

posted by BoKnows at 09:00 PM on January 31

Dude, I am really sorry, I was just trying to name the worst Jersey ever (I can't believe anyone would want this) I have an un-named away (blue, yeah I go old school, bring back home whites!) Fish Sticks knock off Jersey but not a Kirk Muller, an away (red) Montreal (33 Roy) replica and an away (blue) Quebec replica with Sakic on it. Both replicas have stitched names and numbers and are otherwise indistinguishable from an authentic except for the lack of fight strap. Everything else is my Flyers gear and you will have to pry that out of my cold dead hands. I am only interested in hockey jerseys, I like defunct Canadian teams (Jets, Quebec, old Vancouver logo), The Flames (Lanny jersey? anyone?) or anything with a goaltender. The Lindross Jersey sounds tempting Bo, but I hate the son of a bitch so much now I could never wear, let alone look at that jersey. I wouldn't mind a Celtic Football or Liverpool jersey if anyone has one and is willing to trade. I am sorry if my poor attempt at humor got anyone's hopes up. Chico you must be as blind as Ann Frank if you like the Gordon's Fishstick jersey.

posted by HATER 187 at 10:49 PM on January 31

Hater, just for the "clerks 2" reference i wish i had something of interest to trade to you.

posted by elijahin24 at 06:38 AM on February 01

Anne Frank had her issues, but blindness was not one of them. Are you thinking of Helen Keller?

posted by chicobangs at 08:46 AM on February 01

No he means Anne Frank, the chick that was all duhhh, until that miracle worker showed up and knocked the smarts into her.

posted by Mr Bismarck at 08:52 AM on February 01

Oh, her. Poor girl couldn't find her way out of an attic, even with her whole family helping her.

posted by chicobangs at 10:20 AM on February 01

So was she really blind, or was it just dark in the attic?

posted by lil_brown_bat at 10:48 AM on February 01

chico, lbb, are you guys serious with these questions? In case you are (which i doubt) ann frank was the jewish girl who wrote the diary that everyone had to read in seventh grade. she was niether blind, nor deaf. Hellen keller was both. In the movie clerks 2, one of the main charecters, randall, confuses the two. the lines quoted here by hater, and mr.bismarck are both from that movie. you must be as blind as Ann Frank -hater Anne Frank, the chick that was all duhhh, until that miracle worker showed up and knocked the smarts into her. -Mr Bismarck

posted by elijahin24 at 11:58 AM on February 01

Dude, you've got to get used to the sense of humor around here. You really didn't have to explain The Diary of Anne Frank, just becuase Hater got the reference wrong; it's been a while since he read TDAF back in high school, not to mention the fact that he lost his whole brainstem in an unfortunate hurling incident; give the guy a break. And Helen Keller, despite her problems, was an absolute stickler for proofreading.

Yes deffinitly see "clerks 2" one of kevin smiths best. when i was taking "intro to psychology" we were studying subliminal messages. our professor showed us a magic eye picture, and as everyone in the class was staring at it, i slammed my fists on the desk and yelled "WHY CANT I SEE THE GOD DAMNED SAILBOAT?!!!" the class went silent and eveyone looked at me like i was insane, but one person in the back of the room was giggling like someone was tickling him. He was the only one who got it, and i knew i had found a buddy.

posted by elijahin24 at 01:39 PM on February 01

it was sent to me by mistake in an ebay auction and the seller said keep it, but i dont like the j-e-t-s. sorry cjets. Don't be, It's an acquired taste. Especially when you're 4-12 and the other team in your city is in the Super Bowl. And I've got LOTS of J-E-T-S jerseys if anyone wants to trade. Mark Gastineau anyone? Freeman Mcneil? And lots of great black concert T-shirts. And a guidebook from the Helen Keller, er, Anne Frank House.

posted by cjets at 01:55 PM on February 01

cjets, I'll trade. Size? 4-12 team for a 3-13 team? Gastineau for Warner? Wistrom? Faulk?

posted by BoKnows at 02:01 PM on February 01

Also, I have to share this. I was at the Anne Frank house in Amsterdam about eight years ago. As you can imagine, it's a somber, quiet place. I was wearing my New York Jets hoodie staring at one of the exhibits when I hear someone whisper "Jets suck. Pats Rule. " I look up to see a guy wearing a Pats hat, grinning at me. I whispered some shit back to him. This went back and forth for a moment until we were Shushed by about twenty people in the room. Luckily we were able to continue our discussion later at the Bulldog over a, er, "beer."

posted by cjets at 02:11 PM on February 01

cjets, I'll trade. Size? 4-12 team for a 3-13 team? Gastineau for Warner? Wistrom? Faulk? Can we trade draft picks too? The Faulk jersey could be interesting. I'm an XL. The Gastineau might be an L, I have to check. It was alot of years ago.

posted by cjets at 02:14 PM on February 01

Im consolidating the names of my fantasy football teams from various leagues, and cant decide which name to go with. Does anyone have a jersey that would go with a name like dragons, knights, caesars or scorpions?

posted by elijahin24 at 02:18 PM on February 01

I wouldn't mind a Celtic Football or Liverpool jersey if anyone has one and is willing to trade. Me too. Any English football jersey. As long as it's swap meet day, I've got a Soviet Army coat and shirt that I got in Moscow by trading my blue jeans (no, not the ones I was wearing). And a Wayne Chrebet baseball jersey (don't ask).

Does anyone have a jersey that would go with a name like dragons, knights, caesars or scorpions elijahin - I could probably find you a St George Dragons rugby league jersey from here in Sydney. Would that be a fair trade for the Pennington one? I soooooo need that shirt.

I'm just waiting for the Jets condoms. They'd probably go 3-13. Pats condoms, on the other hand... Eli - I doubt I could find a St George Dragons jersey for US$20. Overpriced sports merchandise is the same all round the world. But I'll see what I can do. Google 'NRL Shop' and check out the new prices. My children had to grow up with a hand me down North Sydney Bears jersey (a team that no longer exists - thank you Mr Rupert Murdoch).

posted by owlhouse at 06:40 PM on February 01

Dont worry about the dragons jersey oh, the money itself will be fine. Hell id even accept it as credit at the nfl or mlb store. that would save you the trouble of mailing the cash. They just email me a code. If you wanna do it that way ill find out how much it would cost to ship it and get back with you tomorow.

posted by elijahin24 at 07:51 PM on February 01

Alabama Crimson Tide t-shirts are all ive ever had I guess. Never owned any pro gear. I guess that comes with not haveing any pro teams within 200 miles. On the other hand Im right there with ya cjets on the concert shirts. Dating back to a 1975 Thin Lizzy. elijahin24, I have a couple of scorpions baseball style concert shirts from around '83 '84. Alwyas thought that style t made the best looking shirts.
