Marne's Awesome Pittsburgh Finds

Marne

Who: Marne, ModCloth Photo Specialist and Pens Enthusiast

What: A vintage Pens jersey (circa 80-92), 1980 World Champions Pirates Scorebook, “Pittsburgh’s New Civic Auditorium” postcard, “Pittsburgh – We Love It!” postcard.

Where: The Penguins jersey was picked up at a Salvation Army Super Store, the post cards and scorebook came from an estate sale.

How Much: Jersey - $5, post cards – $1 each, scorebook – $3

When Do You Use Them? Marne wears her Penguins jersey to every game she attends or watches on TV. Her post cards are on display and she plans on framing them. The post cards also offer up some fun facts! On the back of the “Pittsburgh’s New Civic Auditorium” card, the civic arena is described as hosting “prize fights, circus, ice follies, wrestling…and home of the Pittsburgh Hornets (hockey) and the Pittsburgh Rens (basketball.)” !

Shopping Tip: Marne recommends visualizing what you’re looking for before you go out shopping. If you know you’re looking for a pair of vintage heels, you’re more likely to find them than someone who is shopping aimlessly!

    I’ll take Marne’s advice – if I visualize a Jack Lambert “One for the Thumb” vintage t-shirt (which I’m fairly sure her boyfriend owns), then I’ll eventually find one.

    Also, if anyone out there does happen to find such a t-shirt…I’d be more than willing to take it off your hands for you ;)

    He does own one… perhaps I’ll borrow it for the Superbowl party.

    My dad had one of those shirts Lindsay. I remember I also met terry Bradshaw that year and got his autograph, and it was at a place practically across the street from the current location of the ModCloth warehouse!!

    Unfortunately, I’m certain that t-shirt died many years ago.

    Marne you are soo cool, I love the jersey (I think it’s more because of my obsession with penguins than for the sake of sports supporting)

    My roommate is totally obsessed with Penguins (the animal) too!
    She has quite the stuffed animal collection….
