Nowadays it seems that there is an infinitesimal amount of ways to express support for your favorite team. Hats, shoes, shirts, key chains, decals, are by far the most common way to show support. However, there is always the more appealing, yet far more expensive option of buying a jersey or uniform. A football jersey will run you upwards of $200 easily. It’s not so easy being a super fan, but here are some ways to save you extra cash when showing your love.
If your whole family is filled with super fans just like yourself, apparel comes in a variety of sizes and shapes, like these New York Giants jerseys for infants. Typically, the less “official” they appear, the cheaper it will be. For a family member that maybe isn’t as nuts about the team as somebody else, it should be suggested that not a ton of money is spent on their apparel as it won’t be worn or appreciated as much.
Jerseys or uniforms are easily the most expensive part of the apparel world. Prices sometimes vary between players depending on the vendor, so if you’re trying to save money, pick a lesser-known player rather than the superstar. Try to purchase jerseys that are used or in a substandard condition. Arguably, a slightly worn jersey shows dedication and character. Flea markets and thrift shops will often have sports apparel, local teams especially. Just make an effort to bargain hunt before you go drop almost $300 on a crispy new jersey.
Most often, the current popularity of a certain team will affect the price of apparel. Try to purchase your memorabilia during an off-season when your team isn’t doing as well as they typically tend to. This results in less products being sold, so in turn, the price decreases.
