Armanti Jersey help?

Unread post by Deano » Wed Nov 11, 2020 8:48 am

Hey guys, I'm looking for some suggestions, I am finally building a man cave and I am looking everywhere for an old Armanti #14 adult size football jersey. I've checked ebay, Amazon, Mountaineer Mania and Appalachian Tees in Boone, and none of them say they have one anymore. I reached out to Sports Fan Attic at the Boone mall but haven't heard back yet.

Anyone have any suggestions? The Appalachain Bookstore says they don't have individual players jerseys anymore just generic ones. I'm about out of ideas.

Replica player jerseys have been –– and continue to be –– a huge miss for the university.

In 2019, arguably our most successful season, no authentic jerseys were sold by the university. Read that again. The only Nike replica jersey you could get ANYWHERE was a #1 jersey sold on the Dick's Sporting Goods website. A team with Darrynton Evans, ADG, Zac Thomas, Hennigan & Sutton, and not a single replica jersey bearing their numbers was sold.

Currently in Boone, the only replica jersey available is a #20 (presumably because the current year is 2020). It's pathetic there are none of our star player's numbers.

I believe there are some online sellers of knock-off jerseys that will even put the last name on the jersey (since licensed apparel can't have player names). Strictly speaking, buying unlicensed is bad for the university and is trademark infringement, but in this case I see it as a permissible evil if it gives the university a kick in the rear to meet the demand for player jerseys.

I totally agree, what a missed marketing opportunity by the University. For example since I haven't been able to find an App Armanti jersey, I went on the Carolina Panthers website and through their website you can customize a panthers jersey, you can put the number and name that you want, so I made an Armanti #10 Panthers jersey. Its something, better than nothing, but still why doesn't app have any player jerseys?

Sorry, No help with a jersey but, if I could build a man cave I think a couple of these would look cool. https://www.khcsports.com/catalog/appal ... gIwyfD_BwE

Not exactly right but, maybe you could call and get #14 modified to say Edwards.

I could be wrong but isn't there an NCAA prohibition against selling the jerseys with player's name on them? I know you can get them customized with your own name. I don't know if they'll allow you to put any name you want on there. I guess there is no harm in asking.

I still have mine from 2007 or 2008. I’ve only washed it about 4 times in the past 12 years, which represents the number of times we lost to the Stink.

Not sure but i think the bookstore lost their, *ahem*, shirt on the last ones they did. Tried to sell the real thing and were over $150. They were on the rack for a couple years

Yeah, I recall they sold "real" jerseys with the big shoulders + elastic designed for pads. Those aren't big sellers because they look bad and were uncomfortable to wear.

The replicas that look just like the real jerseys, but fit like a big t-shirt are the way to go.

I still think they should sell completely authentic jerseys for framing purposes, though. How many of us would buy a #14 that looks just like the jersey Armanti Edwards wore from 06-09? It could be a cash cow.

We bought my son a #14 App jersey at least 10 yrs ago. I still have it and it's in good condition. Doesn't have AE's name on the back, but I'd still love to frame & hang it on the wall in my office.

Only thing that would make it look better is if AE's signature was on it. THAT would be perfection.

Well to update this topic since I was the original one looking for a Jersey, let me say that there are avenues to find a New App Jersey and put Armanti's name on the back but I wanted an original one. I found one from someone in Boone along with a Corey Lynch jersey , they are awesome! He also had an original white Armanti jersey that was worn during a game with some of Armanti's blood on it, needless to say he would not part with that one regardless of the price. And he told me not to mention who he was. I also got a Panthers jersey with Armanti's name and number on it for my man cave!

Our inability to offer fans high quality gear (on-field apparel) or authentic collections (jerseys, helmets, etc...) drives me insane. If I wanted an authentic Clemson or Alabama jersey, it’d take me 2 minutes online to find one. Legitimately cannot find one for App State.

It blows my mind and unfortunately feeds directly into how the Yosef Club is ran currently. Accessible by the wealthy donors, but nobody else. It’s unacceptable.

I still wear my Edwards Panthers jersey from time to time.
