Off-season discussion ... do you sport a Pirates jersey, and if so, which player(s)?

Kind of curious to hear what us diehards are wearing.

And I guess I mean jerseys that you actually wear out to games and stuff rather than old/collectibles ones you might just have hanging around in the closet.

Jerseys owned and worn (with links to what they look like!):
Spring Training Batting Practice Jersey
Cooperstown MLB Impact Jersey

Technically could be considered 'jerseys':
Black Cutch player shirt/jersey
Red El Toro player shirt/jersey

^ Dig that "Cooperstown Impact" jersey, hadn't seen that before.

I always wonder where people find the spring training/batting practice jerseys ... I'd like to have one of the yellow ones myself. Seems like you always see an abundance of people wearing them at games and so fourth like there's some hidden place to get them for cheap that I don't know about.

I have one of those "jersey t-shirts" - Alvarez in black, and then a blank one of these I scored off eBay ...

Is this not the thread to reference my powder blue Royals Buddy Biancalana Jersey, or my white DeeeeeTroit Jim Walewander?

I have a grey Van Slyke. Period. :)

*edit: And I wear it out. I even played a few slow pitch games at short in it.

I own a 1994 road Don Slaught jersey. It is the only authentic Pirates jersey that I own and I probably haven't worn it in about 10 years. For some reason, I'm not as into baseball jerseys as I am football and hockey jerseys.

I have an old BP jersey, no name or number. If you grew up in my neighborhood you would never wear a shirt with another man's name on it after the age of 16 or so.

I'm not from the toughest of neighborhoods, so I have a Ray Searage jersey shirt.

And my son Jack has two black t-shirt jerseys -- one for Neil Walker (his favorite player) and one for Cutch.

A home white McCutchen jersey that my wife got signed for me in 2011 that I wear every game I go to (12 in 2012).

Also own three jersey T-shirts - 8 Stargell, 21 Clemente, 48 Perez, which of these is not like the others, hmm?

Well, through my online research you can actually find cheaper current, authentic black/white jerseys than the yellow ST & batting practice jerseys. Guess I'll be waiting out eBay.

I'm primarily a soccer fan, and having seen the sh*t foisted on fans by European teams changing their uniforms every season, I stopped long ago buying jerseys/shirts etc. I don't wear baseball caps as a rule, but the one I still have is a 1979 hat like the one in #9's avatar.

At 46, I'm too old to wear the jersey of someone half my age. However, I have an 18 year old son and over the years I've bought him a Jason Kendall jersey, a Jason Bay jersey, and a McCutchen jersey... all at his request. He's in college now and asking for a Cutch all-star jersey and a Walker jersey for Christmas. But at $80+ each, it's about time he bought his own! I'm not Scrooge, but I'm paying for college so he ain't getting a new one this year.

I get awesome ones from China for $20 a pop. If you aren't against it on principle, it's worth looking into. The quality is great.

^ I'll take the link too ... a friend of mine years ago had a lot of success ordering from one of those foreign bootleg sites, but I was always too skeptical because of how many of those sites are out there, and I could never find a consensus on which were the best/safest.
