Posted By: <b>Keith</b><p>I picked this uniform up at an estate sale about a year ago. It would fit an adult or older kid. The front has felt letters reading Magee AA, and the back is embroidered with: Stacks Market Castor and Hartel. This is address is located in the Frankford section of Philadelphia. The jersey comes with matching pants, and a pair of blue and white stirrups. <br />I was thinking it was from the 1940s, does that seem right?<br /><br />This item will probably be on the BST page soon and would be willing to trade for memoribilia of the football genre.<br /><br /><a href="http://photobucket.com" target="_blank"><img src="http://i112.photobucket.com/albums/n193/kjjavic/DSCF0823.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"></a><br /><br /><a href="http://photobucket.com" target="_blank"><img src="http://i112.photobucket.com/albums/n193/kjjavic/DSCF0824.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"></a><br /><br /><a href="http://photobucket.com" target="_blank"><img src="http://i112.photobucket.com/albums/n193/kjjavic/DSCF0825.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"></a><br /><br /><a href="http://photobucket.com" target="_blank"><img src="http://i112.photobucket.com/albums/n193/kjjavic/DSCF0828.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"></a>

Posted By: <b>Dan Bretta</b><p>Yep. Definitely looks 1940s. I just picked up a similar uniform at the antique show a couple weekends back - a bargain at $5.<br /><br />This is the back of the jersey...the front is similar to yours Keith.<br /><img src="http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b331/nudan92/Vintage%20Baseball%20Memorabilia/antiq004.jpg">

Posted By: <b>Joe K.</b><p>I would say it would depend on how old and what team. <br /><br />For anything post 1940 I don't think there is much of a deep market. But depending on the team, and if you can trace it back to a specific player, that can help. Most of the interest will be with Alums from that school. <br /><br />For early 1900s, pre-1930s and earlier, there could be a very hot market. Again depending on the team, but earlier the better, and the style of the uniform will be a factor. Ivy League teams and other college sport powerhouses of the time would garner much interest. <br /><br />For the early uniforms the college affiliation is "icing" on top of what is already there. If its an early uniform with a scarcer style and has a lot of character, it would garner a lot of interest. Add the "Princeton" or "Yale" or other schools like "Michigan" lettering, and the price could triple or more. Add "WhatsamatawithU" and you probably won't seem much difference on top of what the jersey would normally bring at auction.<br /><br />
