Which Braves jersey should my friend buy me??

Postby TheGhost » Sun Jun 09, 2013 11:45 am

So through a random bet on the outcome of the 7 games between the Braves and the Dodgers, my friend has to buy me a Braves Jersey of my choice. What should I get?

Dale Murphy
Julio Teheran
Justin Upton
Hank Aaron
Greg Maddox
Who else?

Throwback jersey? Red, white or grey? Which brand/website/company? Any suggestions and thoughts are much appreciated. ;-D

I love throwbacks.
I would go with someone who you like..
What players?
Mitchell and Ness are good for throwbacks
Russell is decent too I used to sell jerseys on the side.
If you like Atlanta I would get your favorite player.

Chip, Javy, Dale, Eddie, Spahn, Greg, John, Tommy, Bedrock, LJ10, the list goes on (FYI this doesn't belong here :D).

You're right, this doesn't belong here and I'll be more selective next time. I'm an old school Braves fan from when they were the perennial doormats of the NL west. I'm more of an M's fan but liked the Braves because Griffey Sr. played for them when the Mariner's drafted Junior. My favorite players were Maddox, Smoltzy, Glavine, Murphy, Chip, Andruw Jones, and the Crime Dog. I kinda want to go outside the box and get a Teheran, Minor, or Justin Upton. Couple specific questions I'd love to know your opinion on...
What's the best Braves uniform era of all time?
What's the best jersey brand and web store?
What do you think Justin Upton's longterm future in Atlanta looks like?

MD if it wasn't in DTKW (the only forum you post in) then you would never have given an answer :-b

I'd go with J-Up. He should be around for a while and will represent a relevant jersey of a current star.

If you don't mind not having a button-up, I'd go with the 1974 Hank jersey.

You could go with an older button-up Aaron jersey, but I'm partial to that one since it's the one he hit #715 in.

Otherwise, I'd say Dale or Greg or Smoltzie. If you want to go current player, I'd actually suggest a home Craig Kimbrel.
