Jersey Monday: Randy Moss

I retire jerseys in my collection for various reasons (note: a player's actual retirement doesn't usually trigger the jersey's trip to the basement). It's exceedingly rare for a jersey to come out of retirement, but that's exactly what's happening today.

This is one of two Randy Moss jerseys I own, but the less said about my other one the better. I got this authentic Vikings 84 jersey back at the height of Moss's first stint with the team.

Obviously the jersey he'll be wearing tonight, when he makes his return to Minnesota, won't be quite the same, since the Vikings have re-designed their jerseys in the interim. Still, it's cool that I'll be able to break this out and not have it look completely dated for the first time in years. If Moss performs well, I may even wear it to New England Comic Con this weekend to rub it in to Patriots fans.

By breaking this out of the basement (an action I'll actually take this week), it'll mean two of my three Vikings jerseys will be active, with the only retired one out of the rotation because it's signed.

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.
