    Reds memorabilia, bargains since they continue to be bad

    Lately it seems I've picked up alot of Reds related things since they haven;t been exactly good for awhile. At Goodwill a few weeks ago I picked up a pretty nice Reds lamp for $4 and a Joe Morgan bobblehead for $6 with the box and original packaging. I bought an authentic Majestic Reds jersey at Dick's for $40 which was marked down from $75. I guess something good has come out of the Reds awful streak in recent years.

    I've purchased some good stuff from the big Krogers off of the Regional Highway (SR129) - all marked down 25%!

    For those in the area - the items are in the Pharmacy area and some of the items might not scan properly. BTW, the special bobbleheads are NOT on sale.

    harangatang, what year was the authentic jersey? Was it one of the new ones for 2007 or one of the discontinued vests? I envy you. All we find at goodwill or stores around here is UK and Uof L stuff. One thing I love about coming to Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky is seeing all the Reds and Bengals stuff in stores, which is something that those of you that live in the area probably take for granted. I love UK, but am not fond of the color blue and get sick of seeing so much of it. Louisville's stuff is much prettier. (Did I say that? I'd appreciate it if no one would tell WilyMo that I said that.)

    Help stamp out, eliminate, and do away with redundancy.

    They had jerseys at the Kroger store - but despite having the "right look" i.e., no pinstripes but red piping --- the font was wrong and it was the running Mr. Red instead of Mr. Redlegs... so buyer beware!

    All of the "replica" jersies use the incorrect font: standard block lettering as opposed to the new Reds-specific font.

    Its something I wish the team would address -- the replica merchandise just looks cheap.

    I'm in the market for kitschy Reds stuff like lamps, night lights, trash cans, and throw pillows, but I'm trying to avoid mlb.com prices, and I haven't found what I'm looking for on eBay.
