This was going for $100 (actually $100 not $99.99) at Dick’s and there are at least six others in existence. Â I have been unable to locate one on the internet, and anything close sure wasn’t $100.
It’s a pullover (I got gutsy and went large rather than XL again, I thought the XL would look like a tent but I’ll need to skip a few trips to the Shake Shack). Â It has the racing stripes down the side. Â It’s very 80’s. Â This is not to honor the Tom Seaver of Cy Youngs, but the Seaver of 1983 with 9 wins.
I realize this is my first player-name jersey. Â Dan had an article on Saturday that asked if y’all like personalizing jerseys with your own name or do you prefer player names?
I have found it hard to wear the name of someone 20 years younger than me. Â Seaver could be my dad. Â I have met Tom twice, and both are great stories. Â I may have to share them one of these off-days. Â They are very cool.
Do you guys have any random jerseys in your closets? Â Something that seemed like a good idea at the time? Â Send in some pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org
I’m a big fan of the site Straight Cash Homey Dot Net which is where this Gotay jersey is from. Â They post random jerseys every day.
Gotay and a red cap. Â Oof.
