New Throwbacks For Sale

I usually quickly delete the daily junk email from, but a recent one caught my eye: selling a Bartkowski-era Falcons jersey. Hadn’t seen one of those for sale in quite a long time. It was a red Deion Sanders jersey. In addition to the inevitable black and white Deion jerseys for sale as well, also offered were a black Andre Rison jersey, and a long sleeve black Deion “jersey shirt.” While the black throwback Julio Jones jersey you see so many fans wearing is nice, now they'll have more options.

There were eleven pages of jerseys and shirts to scroll through. Along with the standard past stars (Walter Payton, Joe Montana, Jerry Rice, Dan Marino) there were numerous new options: Archie Manning, Dick Butkus, Mike Ditka, Doug Williams, Eric Dickerson, Steve Largent, Fred Belitnikoff, Lance Alworth, and more. Also a few semi-obscure jerseys like the Saints Steve Gleason.
