When buying football jerseys at the thrift store there's a few things you should look out for. Many times you'll consistently see a specific player's jersey in the racks and wonder why there are so many? When you noticed that happening, its almost always due to the fact that the player has been traded. A traded player's jersey instantly loses value once he's off the team. Who wants a jersey for a guy who no longer plays for the home team? An example of this phenomenon is former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb. When McNabb was the star quarterback for the Eagles, his jersey was worth its weight in gold! Once he was traded however, his jersey might just as well been used for a dust rag. Nobody wanted it anymore! The value and demand can drop that quickly! If you find a jersey and you're not sure the player is still with the team, look him up on Wikipedia. There you'll find the player's complete NFL history. If you discover the guy has been traded, it's probably best to put the jersey back on the rack. However, if you find the player retired from football while still playing for that team, there's a decent chance his jersey will still attract bids. At that point you can always look up the jersey on eBay to determine if it's worth buying
