Revere High School held its first ever vintage uniform sale at the stadium to raise money for athletics and clear up storage space.

The sale took place on Saturday, October 21 from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm. The sale took place again on Friday, October 27th at the Revere versus Tallmadge football game. Athletic director Tom McKinnon discussed the sale.

“The vintage uniform sale is the sale of older jerseys that are no longer in circulation,” McKinnon said. The jerseys sold anywhere from $1 to $5.

Assistant to the athletic director Jen Greulich commented about the price of the jerseys.

“Everything except track and cross country uniforms were $5; track and cross country uniforms were $2,” Greulich said.

Greulich spoke about the goal of the vintage uniform sale.

“The goal was to try and clear out . . . storage within the building, but we also wanted to make old uniforms available to Revere graduates and parents, and, yes, we achieved our goal, ” Greulich said.

Head Varsity football coach, Mike Murphey, explained why a football jersey would be considered vintage.

“[A vintage jersey is] something that is old enough that if you stretched it over pads it would rip, in football at least . . . we sold ones going back to the late 1980s, when I was still a single digit old.” Murphey said.

About 50 football jerseys sold for $5 each.
