Defunct minor league team jerseys

I hope this is the right forum for this thread. What defunct teams jerseys do you own? Me, I still have two. I have a Saginaw Gears (IHL) from the late 70's -early 80's and, a Quad City Mallards (UHL) from the mid 90's.

Chicago Express (ECHL).

Can't even remember the last time I wore it, though. Have an Express hat that I still wear from time to time, however.

Quitter!

....though, come to think of it, the last time I wore the sweater I was 70 lbs heavier than I am right now and even back then it was a tad on the large size. Might be far too large for me now!

NHL Colorado Rockies - Rob Ramage
IHL Denver Grizzlies
AHL Albany River Rats
CHL Rocky Mountain Rage All-Star Jersey (It was given to me. As an Eagles fan, I would never purchase such a thing!)
Working on getting a WHA Denver Spurs Ralph Backstrom jersey......
Would LOVE to find a game-worn Greg Pankewicz Manitoba Moose jersey, but I've been looking for years with no luck.

You're not going to find a WHL Denver Spurs Ralph Backstrom sweater... Backstrom played for the Spurs in their half-season in the WHA.

You might find a Fran Huck or a Bob McCord or a Jacques Caron or a Bob Gassoff Denver Spurs WHL sweater, though...

Can't tell if that's impressive or a sign that you're the kiss of death for a minor league team, cap.

All but maybe one or two were acquired after the team folded lol.

NHL jerseys are fun but to me nothing beats a funky, unique minor pro jersey.

I don't own any at this time but I see ECHL Charlotte Checker jerseys all the time at Checkers games, most popular being the ones they wore 2008-10.



I've seen a couple of Raleigh Icecaps jerseys at Hurricane games, they were more common during the teams early days in Raleigh but a good number of people have hung onto theirs.

6 years ago I spotted a Greensboro Generals, Richmond Renegades, Greenville Grrrowl, and Columbia Inferno jersey in one night at a Checkers game. Which probably wasn't all that strange at the time, but it was if that makes sense. At that time the Grrowl, Generals, and Renegades had folded and the Inferno were in their last season before voluntary suspension (and were also one of the Checkers biggest rivals and not their opponent that night).

I forgot one, Peoria Rivermen (AHL). If I look hard enough, I'd probably find the jerseys I had for the IHL and ECHL Rivermen too.

That is awesome. I looked forever before landing one of those. Mine's not worn though. Congrats on that.


Just acquired a San Francisco Spiders.
