    custom jersey question

    At the spring sale a year and a half ago i bought 2 authentic football jerseys, one white one red. They are the uni's from Seneca's era with the "I"s around the neck. I already did the white one last year, with Berryman's #.

    Now the ? is, what color numbers do i go with on the red jersey? Yellow like back in the day? Or the more modern color of white trimmed in yellow?

    I also dont know what #. I dont want 1,7,15,28 etc. Im thinking 96 or 54.

    where are you getting them painted. Also, does any one know if jersey paint is removable so that new numbers can be painted on?

    Get a #7 jersey with the name mexico on back. I seem to remember that somewhere else.

    Re: custom jersey question

    This brings up a great question. Obviously the Nike Jersey's sold dont really fit the authentic catagory very well. Does anyone have great ideas of how to get a hold of more authentic looking ones? I always see parents or friends of the players walking around with some neat looking ones, any idea of where they get those?

    Re: custom jersey question

    The jerseys never had any nmbers on them. They mustve been extras. the nice thing was that they were only $10 a piece. I shouldve bought more and tried to sell em.

    Im just going to TGalaxy and getting them put on. They did a nice job on the last one. I ended up going with white numbers/letters with gold trim.

    The reason i didnt want 1,7,15,28 is becasue you see those kindve jerseys everywhere, i wanted mine to be unique. I guess it already is unique since its authentic.

    Thank you, this was what I was looking for. I got a throwback jersey now, but thought about getting a current one. Of course if they are going to change everything, then I just might wait.

    Love these jerseys. The information isn't printed on, it's part of the jersey, so it will never wear off. The material is very light weight and stretchy. I highly recommend 'em.

    Yes, we each have one. Will need to get new ones after this season, as I have a #7 and Mrs. has a #1.
