footlocker.com has the 1985 jersey from majestic athletics for $79.99 marked down, there's a 30% coupon could so it's about $60 with shipping, not bad compared to the $150 at the cell. they only have XL and up now though, the code is FF3750 for 30%, it's good until sunday

edit: here is the jersey

We old farts find it endlessly amusing when you young whipper snappers describe those butt-ugly doubleknits from 1982 as "retro." :smile:

The popularity of those uniforms can more accurately be described as a fad. Like other bad fashion from the 70's (and that is where the inspiration for those behind-the-times winnin' ugly togs came from), this fad will thankfully pass with time. Take the platform shoes, bell bottom pants, and spread-collar printed polyester shirts, too. Please. <rim shot>

Conversely, if I dared to go out dressed the way I used to dress in 1982, I wouldn't be able to pull off the 'retro chic.' I'd look like an old fart in old clothes.

With the talk about "retro jerseys," etc., I'm tempted to call my brother back in Illinois to see if he can find the jammie top I used to have, complete with fake silk-screened lapel tabs. Not like I would have ever thrown that away.
