  1. So awesome. I now hope to one day spot a Jeff Clement Mariners jersey.

    I find the TMac jersey more surprising.

  2. I own a Jurickson Profar jersey. Same deal, no?

  3. I’m not sure if its entirely the same. But I am sure that I am jealous of you.

  4. Or a coincidence most fortunate, the man is a member of the greater Williamson clan, which is to say his last name is Williamson. Debate rages on over the personalized jersey featuring your own last name, but when the fates align and your name matches that of an on field player, well it’s easy sailing from there on. That is, unless your relative happens to be the worst draft in the franchise.

    I achieved a similar feat in much happier fashion, when Billy Taylor was called up the A’s in 1994. Luckily he wound up being a decently effective closer and did not bring shame to our clan.

  5. Having grown up as a Brewers fan in the 90s, I have a strange affection for those hideous uniforms. Also, a strange affection for those mediocre players. Dave Nilsson, anyone? So, chalk me up as a masochist, I guess.

  6. The fact that the jersey has Antone’s number and is from the generation of uniforms the Brewers wore during Antone’s brief stint w/ the club leads me to believe that it’s more than coincidence. I thought of that at first, and double checked to make sure that was his number. I recognized the hideous jersey style as being from the Williamson era immediately.

  7. Oh, I agree. They’re ugly, but I have a fondness for them for sure.

    Nilsson was better than mediocre, but Brewers fans who suffered through the 1990s probably remember him as being greater than he was because he was the best guy on horrible or mediocre teams.

    You should have said, “John Jaha, anyone?”

  8. the grace jersey is no surprise. straggler cubs “fans” will forever be wandering lost into brewer games (whether the cubs are in town or not) in their “gear.” this is how baseball fandom is perceived and projected by these people. FIBs, if you will.

  10. Antone works with me. He is a technical recruiter. I validated the jersey to be true.

  11. Tell him NotGraphs says, “Hi,” and that if he ever wants to do an interview to hit me up. :)

  12. Unfortunately Antone was the product of a “quick fix” doctor.. Has the skills but botched procedure doomed his career. Great dude if you ever get a chance to speak with him.
