I won it from WHB-810 about 6 weeks before he died and I'm really torn about whether or not to sell it. Where can I get a good valuation on how much it is worth? I've had it in a box in the attic all these years and I think it deserves to be on someone's wall or something.

Unless you're hurting for money, I wouldn't do it. Even then I still wouldn't.

I'm not sure of where to get it appraised though

Why don't you just get it framed and put it on your own wall?

It would look like crap next to the black Gannon jersey.

I thought about that but the boys don't want it in their room. We are thinking of redoing the family room but we've been planning that for 5 years. It pains me to think this poor jersey could sit up there for so many more years.

I'm so torn.

I used to be. I could be again. Just not while a certain someone is still around. I think that is why I've held onto it.

Me neither. I can't find anything Puma on Ebay. I've found Reebok. That makes me think they might be more scarce than I thought they were.

I'd take it if you REALLY don't want it. Beings I am a Chiefs fan. Let me know how much, and we'll see.

It's not that I don't want it. I just think it deserves a more dignified existence.

Well that was another consideration though I think that is kind of creepy. I know it will be worth more but I'd feel guilty holding onto it just for that reason.

It may be worth more on paper but you'll not get more than $150 bucks max.

I'll let you know. I just started thinking about this the past few days as I've been dragging stuff out of the attic for a garage sale. I found the box and was sad it'd been there all these years.

Ok, I will if I decide to sell it. I certainly won't put it in the garage sale. I'd give the folks here first dibs.

If you put in your garage sale, I'll give you $1.25 for it.

How do we know that this is a Derrick Thomas jersey and not the jersey of some other Chief named D. Thomas who wore #58? Like maybe Dan Thomas or Dudley Thomas?

Yey for Wilson authentic's!!! That's the one i have!! Was probably one of the best presents i ever received. I'm from NJ so getting an auth jersey was almost impossible (this was like before i could buy anything and everything from the intrawebs). My grandmother visited our family back in KC and suprised me with it.

Still waiting on getting a box to hang it though. Shits expensive!
