1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Early bird still gets the worn. E-thrift, $18 JM Westons. A little rough but about $982 off retail.

    Regardless. It's old and I have an odd obsession with old stuff. That's awesome. I'd say early 60s? #suds

    Appreciate it! Just for future, where did you dig that knowledge up?

    I paid $4. No idea on value but we will find out!

    Shoutout to @highvoltorb for hooking me up with an awesome sweatshirt . . . that's probably going to get swiped by my girlfriend or her dog.

    Fila hasn't been worth a crap since the 80's when the stuff was made in Italy. Over the past 10-15 years they have released various Hertitage pieces that were reproductions of the old Borg and Vilas jackets, shirts, etc. I'd also say the same for Sergio Tacchini.

    If it has an RN number of 13670 or higher, it cannot be older than 1959.

    Yeah, they started issuing RNs in '59 at 13670 and issued an average of 2600 per year after that. So this would be ballpark 1964-65.

    A little more google-fu suggests Champion Knitwear Co. Inc. became Champion Products Inc. when the company went public in 1967 according to the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle and euro sportswear retail chain size?'s blog.

    Edit: also check out the old catalog covers on the Todd Snyder blog about the history of Champion. The name change happens between the 67 and 68 catalogs.

    I had an insanely similar West Point jersey. Didn't fetch much, but a damn cool piece.
