Really Old Redskins Shirt


Recommended Posts

okay. i've looked all over the internet and i can't even find a picture of what i'm looking for, so i'm going to try to describe it.

i used to have a john riggins jersey t-shirt. basically, it was a t-shirt designed to look like riggins' jersey, mostly white, with the name/numbers/stripes ironed on or something. it was cloth (and maybe even supposed to be a girl's shirt?) and pretty much the best thing ever.

http://www.cbssportsstore.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2472861 this is, i guess, the closest approximation i can find to what i'm talking about.

so. anybody here ever see or own one of these? i really miss that thing. when i moved out of my house it must have stayed behind or something.

or does anyone at least know of somewhere i can buy something similar to what i'm describing? basically, the jersey but made of t-shirt material.

When I was a kid, in the 80's, I had some Jerseys. The only jerseys you could get then were made out of this heavy t-shirt material with ironed on plastic numbers. I had Schroeder, Riggo, Thiesman, Monk and Williams. I still have them. The Jerseys like we have now came about in the late 80's more like the stuff the players use. I still have my old jerseys if I had pictures I would post them it would be interesting to know if yours are the same. Did you get them from an older relative?

yep i got it from my mother actually, who probably got it from my father. i doubt it went back any further than that b/c i'm 20 and my parents were both from out of state.

and i just found something a little closer to what i'm talking about (and will almost definitely buy) here http://cgi.ebay.com/VINTAGE-WASHINGTON-REDSKINS-NFL-FOOTBALL-JERSEY-SHIRT_W0QQitemZ110160269576QQihZ001QQcategoryZ28022QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

i'm still looking for that riggins one though. but i'm glad to hear that these things did have some sort of general market. is there any sort of website or store or whatever that might specialize in these things?
