  • Was thinking about removing Mirer from my #3 and replacing it with Wilson. Will that ruin the value of the Mirer or increase the value with the Wilson

  • Depends.

    Are we talking an authentic Wilson (manufacturer) stitched Mirer jersey, or a screen-printed type with a removeable name bar?

    If it were me, and the jersey was a high-quality piece, I might just take some duct tape and run it over the "Mirer" and write "Wilson" on the tape. It would get your point across in a sort-of comical way without defacing a historic jersey.

  • Is there a way to remove numbers from a jersey? If so how and where and how to get a new number on? Thanks

  • A Mirer jersey has value?

    Yes, but only to a dumpster-diving street urchin suffering from hypothermia.

    I wouldn't put duct tape on it, I'd be too worried the adhesive would be tough to get off.

    Personally, I would just buy a new jersey. I couldn't bring myself to deface an old jersey.

    I had an absolutely authentic, on-field, Wilson Mirer jersey from 1994, with an NFL 75th anniversary patch and all numbers and letters sewn on, and autographed by Rick himself, that went for $750.00 on eBay about 5 or 6 years ago.

    So, yes. If it's the right one.

  • I wouldn't do it at all. Different eras, different uniforms. It'd look weird to have Wilson on a throwback jersey, and people would assume it's Mirer anyway until they saw the name.

  • I've got an authentic Hamlin, any way to replace the name tag?

  • I wouldn't mess with it either. It has value as a relic of a Hawk's era gone-by. Get a new one.
