It’s still jersey week on SB Nation, and yesterday I tossed out this question:
Game Time readers, what is your favorite jersey that you own? Is it an obscure player? Is it a Clown Jersey that you wear unironically? Is it a classic from a bygone era?— St. Louis Game Time (@StLouisGameTime) April 28, 2020
Tweet your favorites at us and at @hildymac and they can make it into a special Jersey Week post on GT.
And wow, did I get the responses. Not everyone sent in a Blues jersey as a response, so Twitter got a chance to see some beauties like this:
i have a tupelo t-rex jersey. although the photo is not mine it is what mine looks like.— pǝıɟıɹǝʌ ɐɯnɐɹʇ pooɥpןıɥɔ ⚠️ (@ctrauma) April 29, 2020
i have John 316 on the back pic.twitter.com/tNqbM7XuhS
And this, that I think many of you may not find as cool as the owner:
Old school is best school:
Sometimes you have to make some tweaks to get it perfect:
My Pietrangelo made in Canada authentic. Bought at the team sale with some random prospect on it, stripped and re-customized over the summer. pic.twitter.com/TlVO865HbV— Sam Chandler (@HaNiceOne) April 28, 2020
Some of you guys had a jersey tied into special memories of Blues history:

The hologram sticker’s still attached to this collector’s item:

Some folks have some serious throwbacks:
I have a Bassen and Lowry. I have a Ronning Canucks in black with the yellow org red flying skate— Angela Carroll (@luvhockey63) April 29, 2020
Even roller hockey represented - I, for one, believe this should be the Blues’ next third jersey:
This was a jersey was from a roller hockey team I played on that was founded on a Gametime message board from back in the day. pic.twitter.com/P9ahxaiqwu— SouthSideCountryClub (@rotolandSTL) April 28, 2020
I would do some borderline illegal things for a Sutter or Wickenheiser jersey from the Harry Ornest years. Home White https://t.co/hS105Ytfhq— Art Lippo (@ArtLippo) April 28, 2020
Bozon is a good dude:
I have a couple autographed Philippe Bozon jerseys from his Geneva team. We had a mutual friend and he just kept sending me autographed stuff. Pretty cool guy to do that.— zappy (@STLNSTDS) April 28, 2020
This is both awesome and somehow obscure. More people need to watch Youngblood. Great movie.
Got this a couple years ago... Peter Zezel's "Rossini" sweater from the movie Youngblood. pic.twitter.com/S0QoE3TyaT— Curt Price (@curtprice) April 28, 2020
A lot of kids are smarter than we give them credit for:
I own a magical pronger white clown jersey that he signed for me on my birthday. But the real magic comes from me being a very smart kid and having Jamie rivers also sign it a few months later.— Katie Davis (@katd87) April 28, 2020
And sometimes kids are forced to wear hideous clothes against their will:
This old beauty! My youth jersey 9-10 years old playing for this chip company and damn they had to pick these colours ! The socks were even worse pic.twitter.com/xUEqFJ9SuO— Gibbs A Proud St. Louis Blues fan (@ash_gibbsblues) April 28, 2020

I really, really liked the Team North America sweaters:
A parayko North American jersey. I love the orange and black.— PauILy (@PauILy) April 28, 2020
Of course jersey fouls suck, if you can admit that they’re a foul:
Do jersey fouls count? (Yes those are TBL letters.....) pic.twitter.com/pBzpxNwUTt— ᴀʟɪᴄᴇ ᴅᴜɴᴀᴡᴀʏ (@alicedunaway) April 28, 2020
We can’t help what players we love, pt. 2:
I own 3 Murray Baron jerseys, one of which is not even a Blues jersey. Don’t ask me why, but the bear was my childhood favorite.— Mathews with one T (@brucio_23) April 28, 2020
Naaaahhhhh, you don’t have to smudge it with sage. It’s fine.
I mean there’s my autographed Robby Fabbri Winter Classic sweater that is in no way cursed at all.— Thomas The Tank Engine (@RobThomTheTank) April 28, 2020
And people say no one ever wins contests!
I have a signed Vladimir Tarasenko jersey courtesy of the NHL17 Twitter campaign. Tweeted until my fingers bled!— ThinMints (@MoeErrett) April 28, 2020
If I missed your tweet or you didn’t get one in, please share your personal favorite jerseys in the comments. They don’t even have to be Blues jerseys - just show them off. Mine?
I have two:
I almost forgot my own submissions. One is obvious, the other... Well, if you can't laugh at yourself... pic.twitter.com/25RbJsZSqV— Laura (@hildymac) April 29, 2020
No shame on that second one.
