    Throwback jersey from 2007

    Today I went to a second hand store and I saw a throwback ISU jersey from the 2007 Iowa game in which I bought. So my question is, did the athletic department auction off the throwback jerseys after the game or did they make a limited supply of the replicas? Also the number on the jersey is number 7 which is either Bret Meyer or Drenard Williams according to this roster, and I was wondering what would be the probability that the jersey was actually worn by Bret Meyer.

    There were replicas produced. I have one, and know a bunch of others. #7 was the stock number.

    The best way to see if it's a "real" jersey is the length. Game jerseys are much longer than replicas.

    I think they had limited supply. I bought one in 2008 at the ISU bookstore for 75% off when they were trying to get rid of them all.

    You could buy the game worn items through the auction or directly from the company (can't remember the name right now). I got the helmet, jersey and pants of our old friend Phillip Bates. I got his because of "the catch". Too bad he didn't stick around Ames longer though.

    Re: Throwback jersey from 2007

    What you have is likely the replica. Easy to tell is the real ones have elastic side panels and elastic in the sleeve cuffs. They were auctioned by the university before the game and after the game the rest were sold on gridironghosts.com which seems to now be out of business. There is still one available at www.girdironheroes.net which is the milan moses I think.

    Its funny that you say that. I bid on number 8 in the university auction which was before the game hoping that it would be the offensive number 8 and not the defensive. Bates went on to make the catch and then I received the uniform and helmet after the game. The sticker on the box from Iowa State said Bates 8, so I assumed I had that set.

    Nice. I was going by the facemask which looked more like Bates' than the DB's but I could be wrong as I didn't have a sticker or anything from gridironheroes confirming whose it was. Anybody know who the other #8 was. He had to have played as there was a little Iowa paint on the helmet.

    The other was Chris Brown, a DB. Your helmet looks like his. The Phillip Bates should have a double bar on top and below the eye spacing. See attached. I don't have any images I could find tonight on Chris Brown from the throwback game (he did play in it), but in other pictures he uses a facemask with two bars above and one bar under the eye spacing like yours.

    I bought #21 jersey/helmet from the Iowa game that year... It came with a certificate that it was worn in the game.
