Jerseys Vintage Ensures Popularity

Buying your jerseys vintage instead of modern is a wise move if you're looking for long-term value and popularity.

Vintage jerseys are obviously harder to find than their modern era counterparts.  The demand is greater when it comes to classic designs--even from the 1970s and 80s.  You'll likely find more competition among collectors who want to add something unique.

While modern era jerseys are often carefully catalogued by teams who now see them as valuable assets, older game worn baseball jerseys from big league or minor league teams weren't always preserved.  Some made it out of the clubhouse but most were passed down to farm teams where they became minor league jerseys with a quick change of logo, number or both.  Teams once tried to get as much wear out of them as possible, ensuring the jerseys vintage wear for beyond just one season.  Now, players in historic situations will change jerseys even during the course of a game to create additional monetization opportunities.

Vintage jerseys have the scarcity angle, but they also tell great stories.  The development of jerseys from heavy, scratchy material to the slightly thinner flannels of later years, the vest models worn in the 1960s, multi-color options of the 1970s and on up to today's easy-breathing fabrics are all a part of baseball history.

Determining jerseys vintage is much easier these days with the number of photographs now available to photo match a specific shirt to the date of the picture.  If a jersey has a tag in the tail with a year, so much the better.

There are even jersey authentication companies like MEARS that have research materials available that can all but assure you a jersey is real or not.

Authenticated jerseys like those you'll see through our direct links to eBay are always the best ones to buy.  They will cost you a little more, but in the long run you'll have more peace of mind.
