my jerseys, edition four

the next team x jersey came around later in 1995 and progressed to 1996. it was a lot nicer jersey, although it was still done at stanley's sports and fishing emporium. we rolled in a couple of sponsors so we would have a little money to race with. carnival computers, pro rehab, and big shark had their way with the back (whoa...!) and gu had the front to themselves. a later edition, which i think i cut the sleeves off for summertime frolicking, had the late, great outdoor exchange as a sponsor. ethan was the proprietor of that interesting little store, so of course he had to sponsor our ragtag team since he raced on it. ethan even had outdoor exchange socks and arm warmers made for us, and i still have some of those socks! i probably shouldn't.
the last edition of the team x jersey dispensed with the blue collar and sleeves.
i have various photos of the three of us racing throughout the 1995 and 1996 season, but i don't have a scanner. they would probably make a great addition to the jersey stories, but you'll just have to take my word for it...we were cool.
