UM garage sale.what are the prices usually like?
They said that tshirts - $5, polos - $15, jerseys - $50, footballs - $20, shoes - $25
Jerseys $50? I'm glad my gf works in Ann Arbor now. :)
(I couldn't resist.)
Are the shirts and shoes used as well?
The last time they had the garage sale, I was doing an intenrship with the sports marketing department and was basically part of running the entire thing.
Prices definitely seem to have gone up since that time because we got really retro jerseys (had M on the shoulder) with #2 and #15 on them for like $15 each. They were practice jerseys however and never could have been used in games.
The real hidden deal that I found last time was the warm up and practice stuff.
I bought Michigan practice bball shorts, soccer warmups, track rain warmups, etc.
My fiance also hit up the womens section for great michigan gear from the women's soccer team, field hockey, etc.
We payed no more than $20 for any item, and it wasn't because I was working with the marketing department. So keep an eye out for those kinds of things.
Also be sure to get there EARLY! Last time there was like 5,000+ people waiting before it even opened and they only let a certain number in at a time. Also, people come with like $500 and buy the place up. It can turn into quite a mad house. Just some things to keep in mind.
I really wish I could be there, and wish the best of luck to those who go!
Anyone know what kind of shoes they have? Is it just cleats or others as well?
Anybody know how early you would have to go to have a decent selection of shirts/jackets? I would think the jerseys and other football items would be the first things to go but that's just a guess.
Good weekend to come into town! guess i need to camp out to beat the crowd.
The real deal of the whole thing are shorts. The basketball Nike team-issue practice shorts I got the last time they ran this thing were about a dollar or two. Seriously. And they've held up like a champ. Wish I had bought three or four pairs.
If anyone is going, please send me a message - miaminemo at gmail ...
I've posted in the past about a goal of getting jerseys of all the numbers, and this might be an opportunity to get some oddball numbers..
Seriously, if you are going let me know, please. I can't make the 3-4 drive up this sunday :(
Making about a 4 1/2 hour drive down Sunday morning. About how early should I show up to get in line to have any hopes of buying a jersey? Hoping if I get there by 6am I would be fine. Any thoughts?
