A unique opportunity to purchase authentic Yale sports gear will take place on Friday, May 20th, at Ingalls Rink in New Haven.
The Yale Athletic Department will be holding a “yard sale” that day from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., to dispose of jerseys and other apparel which will no longer be used after its partnership with Under Armour takes effect on July 1st (see our previous stories).
It’s an opportunity not only to pick up usable apparel, but to obtain items which could become valuable for collectors of sports memorabilia. Yale says they will be “priced to sell.”
Some of the items are brand new, others have been worn in games, practices or both. Almost every sport will be represented at the sale, although basketball will continue to use current uniforms under its Nike contract, which has another year to go.
