oldgreyfalcon Posted October 28, 2007 Share Posted October 28, 2007 it was 1968, i was in 3rd grade,some of the guys at school would wear nfl jackets or sweatshirts and even tobaggins.i remember johnny jenkins in his oakland raider jacket and jeff cannon`s redskin shirt. we would play pick-up games at recess.i decided that i had to choose me a pro team to like.it may have been about this time of year that i came home from school and grabbed the jc penny x-mas catalog and headed for the bathroom,jc penny sold these neat replica pro football uniforms for kids.not knowing anything about pro football at the time i chose the first team as they were listed in alphabetical order so naturally that meant that atlanta was first and had to the best(little did i know) and the red helmets were cool.so i begged and pleaded enough to my mama and some how another she got the money from the old man to get it at x-mas!i actually wore this replica falcons uniform at little league try outs and made the team! it got misplacedover the years and i wish i still had it Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
