The Recent History Of The Cleveland Browns Told In 15 Now-Obsolete Jerseys

Cleveland Browns jerseys are a risky investment. Just ask my friend Joe: the lifelong fan purchased a $230 authentic Trent Richardson jersey not too long ago. He needed a new one to replace his authentic Peyton Hillis jersey he bought just a couple years earlier.

For Browns fans who wear jerseys to games and don't go with the throwbacks — commonly a #32 Jim Brown or #57 Clay Matthews — odds are they are already obsolete (the #3 Weeden jerseys are already kind of silly). Most of them are gone, almost always leaving as a disappointment on bad terms, and never as good or better than when their jerseys hit the market.

I took my camera down to the stadium yesterday to capture post-1999 era Cleveland Browns jerseys. The result: duct tape-covered nameplates of departed players, silly-looking Colt McCoy jerseys, and even a guy who had to alter a #23 Lebron James football jersey (from "LEBRON" to "BRO"), among many more (I'll update this list in two years with the hoards of fans wearing Brian Hoyer jerseys purchased this week). Take a look at 15 of them:
