Old school jersey... Info on team/player?




Does anybody know the history behind this jersey? If so, is it worth anything?

Not worth much. Problem is that "pro" paintball in its current form isnt a spectator sport, so items that would fetch good prices in other sports (like signed jerseys) wont amount to squat in paintball.

Example: I dont watch football, its just not my thing, yet I can tell you who John Elway is. Ive played paintball since 97ish and nothing comes to mind concerning Matt Quinn. Unless you attempt, and succeed, to start the next dumb trend to sell Paintball soft goods (as with straps) to kids spending there parents money, its not going to sell for much. Even with the strap fad, the items seem to be purchased for use/wear, where as an autographed item would be purchased for display.

If it were me Id just keep it, or give it to some kid whos just getting involved in paintball

Maybe it was some kid's jersey, and they went to an event and got it signed by one of the Bushwackers?

I don't think so, because the signature has the same initials as the name on the jerseys.

The sig says Bushwackers which is a well known team. Indecent might be just some scrub team he was recruited off of. Since he is not a well known player, the jersey is worth whatever an old used jersey sells for.

Worth nothing in my opinion. I have never heard of that team. And Bushwackers are not special enough right now to bring any money.

There's already a following on PBN for old jerseys.

Just come up with the history and sell it there (or keep it if you want.)

The jersey probably won't be as valuable as it was new, but it will be more valuable with the history attached than without.

Good luck.

I dont know the guy but there's a chance he could have played with the Bushwackers at one time...Remember they are one of the oldest teams "the oldest I think" around and their roster has changed a stupid amount of times..Ron was the only true staple of that team, the rest of their lineup was like a revolving door, from one event to the next it seemed like the players changed for them.
