Posted By: <b>Joe K.</b><p>Hi All. I am looking for a 20s/30s Newark Bears photo that possibly matches the jersey that sold in the attached auction. <br /><br /><a href="http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=230240611936&ssPageName=STRK:MEWA:IT&ih=013" target="_new" rel="nofollow">http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=230240611936&ssPageName=STRK:MEWA:IT&ih=013</a><br /><br />This jersey first sold on ebay a few years ago for $150 and there was no mention of it being a Bears jersey that I recall, in fact I think I recall the description being from another town team. I am not sure it is a Bears uniform but have been unable to locate a photo. Based on the price I am assuming the winner and under bidder thought it to be a Bears uni, but based on what I have seen from these bidders I am not sure they know or are just trusting the sellerís description. According to the seller he bought it several years ago at the Ft Wash show and the guy that sold it to him told him it was Newark. He stated he recalls seeing a photo before of the Newark team wearing this style uniform, but he does not have the photo. <br /><br />I am not looking to question seller or buyer, but just curious if this could be a Bears uni and looking for a photo. <br /><br />Thanks<br />-Joe<br />
