Call this fate or what but check out my history of jersey purchases:

Michael Vick 8th grade: The next year they changed their jersey format from all black to black red and white

Randy Moss 8th grade: Two weeks later, he was charged with battery with a vehicle and drug possession

Daunte Culpepper freshman year: That year, he tore his entire knee up then traded to the Dolphins

Kobe Bryant Sophomore year: Bought in the summer, the following winter he was charged with rape

Willis McGahee Junior year: Next season he was traded to the Baltimore Ravens

Manny Ramirez Three weeks ago: Should have known, but today he was traded to the Dodgers


These are all true stories, and I have finally confirmed(should have earlier) that I will no longer in my life buy a jersey of my favorite athletes.

I actually thought about buying a Adrian Peterson jersey the other day. Good thing I didn't, or he probably would have spontaneously combusted or something.

ah Dont Worry I have the Same problem. I bought like 3 Culpepper Jerseys and got Traded. Like 3 Moss Jerseys and was traded. McGahee as well. I have a Vick one as well. I bought a Vilma last year and he was traded. I asked for a Koren Robison Jersey and he was traded luckly didnt get it. For a While there every jersey my mom bought for me the player was traded so she never buys jerseys for me anymore....So When i do ask for jerseys I make sure how long there contract is. Which I just had to the other since I bought an Authentic Kevin Williams Jersey.

Got a Peyton Manning jersey for Christmas. Barring a Tom Brady for Peyton Manning trade(not that this would ever happen) should be able to get another 5-6 years use out of this jersey.

More than that, jerseys of players who spent either the majority of their career or their whole career on one team, espcially future HOFers, are timeless.

Well, I've got a bunch of old ones, but my Lavar one hurt pretty bad when he was cut(and hurt).

Bought a K-Mart jersey one off-season, he was traded 2 days later(exchanged it for a Bibby 'zona jersey, you can't trade your college)

RJ just got traded, so that jersey along with my Kidd are done. Nenad went to Russia, and thank god Sean Williams didn't get traded like some rumors suggested. His is my authentic!

So don't by basketball jerseys!!!!!!!!!

I just wear my authentic Osi jersey and rock old school's like Sehorn and Strahan(I've also got a Will Peterson jersey, he's now on a different team, with a different name ha)

This could bite me in the butt, but I am going to take a risk and buy a John McCargo Jersey...... Its going to cost 100 bucks, but I think its worth it.... A McCargo jersey is extremely risky, however it has a huge payoff.....

I own a Jason Richardson GS Warriors Jersey. I bought it in 2005 when i actually cared about basketball. I havent really paid much attention to the NBA in about 2 years except for the finals. I was surprised to see Richardson on the Bobcats in the beginning of the season, which makes my jersey obsolete i guess..

That's why it's all about getting college jerseys of your fav NFL players. They can never be traded and the jerseys are more unique.

Also, where do you guys buy your jerseys? I get all mine off Ebay.

07-31-2008, 11:34 PM
The only jerseys I own are Brandon Phillips, Eric Davis, Carson Palmer, Chinedum Ndukwe, and David Pollack. The only one that you could call bad luck would be Pollack but y'all know the story on him.

Can you buy Steelers, Bengals and Ravens jerseys? kthanks.

Jerseys...
Tim Couch (bust)
Omar Vizquel (with the Indians/ signed)
Grady Sizemore
Braylon Edwards (alternate orange!)

I have a horrible history with going to College/Pro Football games:
I've been to 6 Browns games and they've lost all 6.
I've been to 2 college games and the team I was rooting for both times lost.

Just join the Moorman crowd, it's the best way to go.

My football jerseys:
- A Logo Athletic Jim Kelly jersey that is faded beyond recognition and two sizes too small. I wear it with pride.
- My friend's attempt at changing a Nate Clements jersey into a Fred Jackson jersey, actually done before Freddy became a superstud. Awesome.

Great choices. Schobel is a little underrepresented considering he's almost certainly going to be a career Bill and has been the best player on our defense for a while now. Moorman of course is a great choice, and McGee I had been considering myself, but I've never bought an NFL jersey for myself. Lynch is cool, I got my dad one for Christmas last year, he loves him.
