Jerseys from the past

I have looked everywhere to find a place online where I can see all the RAGBRAI jerseys from the past. I think it would be cool to see all the jerseys side by side, year to year. Does anyone know where someone has done this?

I suggest you go to e-Bay and search RAGBRAI Jersey.

Daryl, good idea but all I could find on ebay were mostly from recent years. I have searched ebay multiple times and there were not any before 2000. I will keep looking but there has to be someone who has a webpage on the history of jerseys from RAGBRAI. I may have to start one myself.

Maybe I should have started a new thread, but this one was obliquely related.

What are some of the oldest T-shirts folks still have from ragbrai’s past? My Sagbrai T shirt was lost several years back, now my oldest is from 1983. Eleven was special year for me. I bet Bill has a nice collection.

I could be wrong, but I believe the reason you can’t find a jersey prior to 2000
is because they didn’t have one. I may be off, but not more than a year or two.

I have a 1997 25th anniversary jersey, and found a shirt from XII. Could be older jersey and a X around here someplace.

Okay, instead of being wrong by only a year or two, it might have been three or four; maybe five.
However, I can say absolutely, positively, without a doubt, there was probably no official jersey when I started in 1990…. maybe.

In response to RJ:
Yes, I have a very nice collection of RAGBRAI-related T-shirts — most of which were sold by the follow-along shops, although some are from towns along a given year’s route (including one of the rarely-remembered and even more rarely seen KYBO tank tops that I picked up in Glenwood in 1980) and a few are the ones that the Register itself included when you ordered the newspaper packs — dating back to RAGBRAI V (1977) and covering the next 23 years through RAGBRAI XXVI in 1999, and I think I’ve only lost or worn out one of them over all that time.  I also have about eight years of dated jerseys spanning 1998 through 2006.

Right now they’re stored in boxes somewhere (you knew that was coming, of course!) because it was always my intent to cut out the designs and maps as fabric squares and get someone to make them up into a quilt or tapestry for me, but that hasn’t happened yet.

Beebs, maybe we could convince Dear Helen Heart to do the sewing! I occasionally talk to her. She always asks about you! Did you make it to the 2017 ride?

I am trying to make a quilt for my mom, with her old RAGBRAI shirts right now. She started in 1979 on RAGBRAI 7, only missing 1981 (when I was born–the day after RAGBRAI finished). I am missing a few years, and am wondering if anyone knows of a place I could buy some? I need RAGBRAI 8 (1980) and RAGBRAI 18 (1990)..

If two or three RAGBRAIers would host a public FaceBook page titled “RAGBRAI Jerseys and T-Shirts” I could post up a couple of old t-shirts.

Michrider,

Please repost the directions for adding pictures to the Ragbrai threads. I’d love to see R-Daryl Daryl’s jersey pix, but he needs your assistance to post them. Thanks!

Happy New Year to the Sage of Rabbit Hash and the rest of Ragbrai-world. See you along the I-O-Way in just a few short months.
