This is a whimsical post so take it lightly.

When I buy Jersies these days, it's generally for a player who as far as I can tell, remains/ will remain a permanent fixture on the Team. (example, Eli)

But in general with all the Cap Restrictions, Salary limitations and re-structured CBA in place and so on; I am realizing that investing in a Jersey is kind of silly and instead I opt for the shirts, hoodies, jackets, caps, beanies etc that represent the Team/Franchise as a whole.

Does anyone else do the same and for similar reasons?

I own a Strahan, Tiki, Eli, Jeter, Ewing, Posada, Berra (combinations T-Shirts or Jersies) and was thinking about an Amar'e, Melo or Osi...yes Osi (maybe a bargain if/when he leaves the Team).

(I hope we keep Cruz but ...) ( I bought my two older sons a Tuck and Cruz jersey last year sometime- LOL)
