    I've been thinking about picking up a VY jersey, you can find them dirt cheap now. Once I buy the jersey, i'll swap the nameplate on the back to "Locker" instead of "Young".. obviously.

    Has anyone done this? Hows it look? How much was it? How hard was it?

    Feedback would be awesome!!

    There's probably a good chance you can go to a sports apparel store that does embroidering and have them swap out the nameplate. Don't know how much it would run you though.

    I've had no luck so far finding anyone to do this online. The NFL has cracked down on it.

    you can get it printed on the back for under 10 dollars at a lot of sports apparel stores, with the plasticy looking ones they use for names on Tshirts.

    Since I don't have a white Titans jersey anymore, I've decided to spend the money and buy the new Locker jersey. I'm going to first wait to see if I even need it this year tho, as Hasselbeck may not suck and keep Locker watching til 2011-2012.

    Save all of your money until next season anyway... Nike takes over then and Reebok jerseys will feel outdated, especially if Nike changes up the look of our jersey. Not highly likely, but could happen.

    All the Reebok jerseys will also hit the clearance racks after this season. I remember when the jerseys switched to Reebok in 2001 (???) you could get the old Puma jerseys for about 75% off.
