Throwback of the Week - Cash Money Honey

Here's what I love about this shirt:

  • I truly miss all of the "road baby blue" jerseys that team used to wear in the late 60s and into the 70s. It created memorable color combinations like this one. This is what i will always envision when I think of the Fightin's.
  • The Fat P. Should say Phat P. I think your view of what is cool in the world tends to stop at the age of 18. Fat P was the logo at point for me. Enough said.
  • I also happen to be coo-coo for patches, if you hadn't noticed. This one's a beauty, with the 76 incorporated into the Liberty Bell.

BTW, Dave Cash was an undrafted, unheralded second baseman who took the field with what was believed to be the first all-brown lineup in MLB history. Read about him here.

Here Goes...

If you've read here (or know otherwise), I've got this thing with sports jerseys and other memorabilia. The whole Carl Anderson's Lockerroom thing, you know. (If you don't, you can read about it here, or see an example of my collection here).

So I've taken to starting a jersey design effort in my spare time (of which I really have none). Classic Old School is the name. Custom Jerseys, Made to Order is the tagline. It's been mostly word-of-mouth and word-of-ebay until now.

But now, I've merged onto the highway of eCommerce (that reads so much cornier on the screen than it did in my head). I'm advertising on my favorite - and the definitive - uniform blog, UniWatch

That's my ad on the right hand side above the Google box. And actually, that logo is made from a picture of me in the 9th grade.

So far, so good. It's really amazing to see how many people have as niche-like an interest as I do. 

Now it's not a scalable mega-business. That never was the point. It's just really cool to do something that I'm so passionate about - as a job.
