    Any Pats gear collectors here? I've found myself getting sucked into this more and more in recent years, especially during the off-season when sales are happening. My latest compulsion has been '90s nostalgia (the Bledsoe years). It amazes me how much of a collectors' market there seems to be for team apparel on eBay -- stuff like short-run Reebok items. The urban-gray camo "sideline united" gear from two or three seasons ago is in HUGE demand, for instance: I saw a hat you could buy back then for $20 listed for $399.

    Some of the '90s Pats apparel (jackets, sweatshirts, T-shirts) was really great, by companies like Starter, Pro Line and Apex. Now you've got pricey designers such as Mitchell & Ness and New Era involved. So far I don't like much of the Nike stuff at all ...

    I have a #81 jersey that I bought in 1985 for the illustrious Stephan Starring... Whom I eventually did meet at a charity softball game and got him to sign the same :D
    Although I like the Russ Francis signature I got (he wore #81 too) on it is way cooler. now I just need Randy Moss and Aron Hernandez...:rocker:

    There were other 81s along the way, so you've got more than Moss and Ahern to track down. ;) So, do you wear the jersey or display it?

    I wouldnt consider myself a gear collector but most of my everyday clothes has a Patriot logo on it. But it is not anything special or collectable.

    I have a few peices of memorabilia that I treasure and I guess I have some cool gear.

    As far as gear goes the coolest thing I own is a Mo Lewis jersey :D

    Well... in 1984/1985 I was a little smaller around the middle... :rolleyes: It's just for display now. I also have a yearbook from that era with a full page picture of Ronnie Lippett in action that I got him to autograph at a different charity game not long ago. It was pretty cool to see him reminisce going through it
