Throwbacks and Fitteds

The Ivy League goes hip-hop. Watch out!

For those of you who have not discovered the world of Stall & Dean Sporting Goods Co., their website is well worth checking out. Founded in the late 1800's, S&D now specializes in caps and apparel of Ivy League schools and old school New York Rucker Park club basketball teams. They also have a celebrity photo section, with Jay-Z, Kanye and others sporting S&D. But one of the coolest thing on there is a Rucker League "Cougars" hat, which is pretty much the closest thing out there as far as official "Playmakers" gear goes. If you haven't checked the show out, I highly recommend you watch it on DVD:

If anyone has a DH jersey, please e-mail me.

Meanwhile, offers links to their ebay auctions for game used vintage jerseys, some of which date back to the 1920's. They have some great pictures on their site of classic uniforms such as the 1970's baby blue Sacramento Kings and Harlem Globetrotters warm-up jacket. It's a mostly hoops site, but there are items for every sport, hockey included.

Now I've seen it all.

That's it for today, and I'll keep everyone posted as the search for awesome stuff continues.
