Man back then I had a paper route and saved my money to buy my Nike and Polo and stuff. Guess my priorities were all wrong shog[1].gif

In the field - is this the kind of vintage nike I should be buying? Older label inside 'Nike Team'. White embroidered 'state' on the back.

Can run out of the office to kop if worth it. Thanks!

Beats me. Is it worth £10 for flippage my dear fellow? This stuff isn't my comfort zone.

Not sure what the market in the UK is for vintage Nike/College gear. For that price over here I'd pick it up, but most places would have it marked double/triple that price.

Just checking out sold listings: 10 pounds is like 12 USD and I would expect you could get 20 - 50 USD for it. So I guess it's up to you if those margins are worth it

Thanks man I just bought it. I believe the term is, BALLER AS FUCK.

Quite a strange thing to see here as you say. It instantly caught my eye and had my thrift senses tingling. Thanks for the confirmation. Seems very flippable.

Thanks, I couldn't find any matching ones on my completed listing search probably because it shows mainly UK sales. Appreciate the support gents.

I only saw one like that and it had a big ass hole in it. I think if the condition is right and you list it with something like Starter Style Jacket it's $50-100.

As a life long Tribe fan....I know why that still has the tags on it. Looks like something a grandma would wear. There are some great deals on eBay on vintage Majestic and Russell jerseys and such.

Kinda wanna raid all grandma's closets. 

But I had a conversation with the clerk about this piece as she noticed the vibrant colors and we got to talking the origin of the piece. How it got there, why it still has tags on it, (why it's marked at $10).

I don't remember seeing Indians ones like that and I was still living up north then. I do remember the Browns ones by the maker...ugly brown with the orange helmet.

By the way I loved your shoe pix!!!

I like the Nike retro tennis shoes. I've got the Challenge Court 2 in white/red/blue, Air Trainer1s in the original color way, and just bought the Tennis Classics that look like the old Wimbledon's. My grail find for a vintage tennis shoe would be the old Superga's from the early 80's. I was also a big fan of the Diadora Borg Elites.
