I was lucky. I found a white Zach Thomas AND an orange Ricky Williams at a garage sale for $5 each. I can't wait to wear them again at the sports bar IF I can manage to get Sundays off again.

Ah, nice. I live in WV, so Miami Dolphins' jerseys are really hard to find (unless you order online). I remember this jersey store (can't remember its name) at the mall sold like WV Mountaineers jerseys, Marshall jerseys, Pittsburg Steelers (and Pirates) jerseys, and some other sports teams jersey (Mostly Pittsburg, Cleveland, and Cincinnati teams. There were a few Miami Dolphins jerseys, but I couldn't find a Ricky Williams jersey since he was my favorite player. I saw a Zach Thomas jersey for $20 bucks and brought it instead. I was 16 at that time, so I was happy either way.

A galaxy far, far away...
It was a Bob Griese jersey, but I have no idea where my parents got it. It had Miami's colors and the #12, but did not have Griese's name on it or the NFL shield. The material was extremely slippery but was almost impossible to rip. For some reason my brother got a New Orleans Saints jersey with the #21 on it.
I still have the first jersey I actually bought in '84, an aqua Marino jersey made by Wilson.

I cannot find that jersey but it was not an embroidered jersey. I added three embroidered jerseys since then.

My first is a little weathered almost fifty years later, but I got it in 1973....it was the winterized Aqua worn or at least packed for Houston in Super Bowl VIII.
It has held up pretty good, but I wore it a bunch whenever weather permitted....it is heavy. Tim Foley became one of my favorite players...
