Jersey Monday: Deion Sanders (Cowboys)

As you may remember from last week, I got my first Deion Sanders 49ers jersey while on a family vacation (in Wisconsin, to be specific) and I got my first Deion Sanders Cowboys jersey in the same circumstances -- only this time it was during a trip to Florida.

I considered having my parents get me a Dolphins jersey -- since we were in Florida -- but I couldn't pass up the opportunity to update my Deion jersey to his new team.

As you can see from the picture, the jersey is absurdly faded. It's also missing the Cowboys TV numbers. Both of these were standard characteristics of Logo Athletic jerseys (the third major characteristic being that they were about 25% cheaper than jerseys by other major brands). Also, to be fair, I wore the crap out of this jersey, since Deion stayed with the Cowboys for a while and he was my favorite player.

On a side note, despite being a huge Redskins fan, I really like the Cowboys white jerseys (I can't really call them home or road, since NFL teams traditionally wear white on the road, but the Cowboys wear it everywhere). If they had a player I didn't completely despise, I might actually get a new one (maybe Dez Bryant will fill that role this season).

Jersey Monday will continue every Monday until I run out of jerseys to spotlight. And since I’ve got more than 150 of them, that could be awhile. The next few weeks will spotlight my Deion Sanders collection.
