I'm only 72. Think I'll wait 'til I get old.

No jersey for me at this time. Unlike many, I have had no issues with owning-up to considering myself as being old since I turned 55 and for sure since the time I started collection SS. I took pride in walking my first marathon at an old 61 and completing my first IRONMAN triathlon at an older 63 and now being able to hop on my bike and ride 100+ miles comfortably as I approach 68. OLD is more structurally than mentally.

I bought this when I was just a kid of 66 in ATL. I'm now 73 and here in FL I'm not always the old guy in the group.
I think the red, gray and white version is nicer looking but wasn't available 7 years ago.

I might be old, or even an old fart, but I'll never wear a jersey like that.
