Syracuse fans pick up one of kind items at SU Athletics yard sale

Syracuse Athletics yard sale

For some long time Syracuse fans, the choices were overwhelming. The Syracuse Athletics yard sale was a rare chance to buy game worn SU football, basketball and lacrosse jerseys in an assortment of styles.

Syracuse Athletics staff set up the sale inside Manley Field House from 9:00am to 6:00pm on Friday. SU employees and season ticket holders were able to attend special shopping hours Thursday afternoon and evening.

Many of the jerseys and warm up suits were a few years old and many had Big East logos on them. Numbers had been removed from the football jerseys but many still had scuff marks and tears from hard tackles.

SU Athletics also put a large selection of new Nike footwear up for sale. By Friday morning, the only basketball shoes available were in size 18 but football cleats and women's shoes were available in most sizes.

Jerseys were selling for $15-$20 and shoes were between $10 -$25. Some parents brought their teenagers and stocked up on athletic shoes for the next few years.
