Got my hands on Roger's Squadron blue/(Sport fuchsia)/Sport fuchsia[stripe] wristbands from Cincinnati 2015 [Player Exclusive]

Where the hell did you find those???

Took me forever to just get the shorts and henley within the last year. Figured I'd never find the headtie/wristbands. Assuming the socks and shoes will obv never be found.

Additions from this year. Hoping to find some orange wristbands to go with the shirt. Anybody know the name or color code?





For the Nike gear, the smaller, inner tag has the season, style number and color code on it.


^^^ In this example, Summer 2010 collection, Style number 363615, Color code 481.

Roger wore this Total orange polo at Indian Wells 2013 (alternately with the Deep Royal Blue one) (see: http://web.archive.org/web/20130408...Premier_RF_Polo__/descpageMANIKE-NMS2RPO.html)

Technically, he wore the White/(Team orange) wristbands with this particular shirt while Team orange/(White) with the blue one. Their codes were PAC294-180 and PAC294-807 respectively. Unfortunately, they were both player exclusive although there were limited amounts sold (PAC294-807, for sure) at the IW site that year.

Solid snag from the bay. $50! Bit of scuffing on one toe but everything seems to be in remarkable shape for an 11 year old shoe!
Nine year old shoe. The Courtballistec 4.3 debuted in January 2012.

I used to have this shoe in the "Flame Pack" colorway, as well as the one that Nadal wore at the BNP Paribas Open in 2013.

Very durable shoe.

Technically it was manufactured in 2011 but my math is still off ha

OK, @innoVAShaun :)

Here goes my current Rafa (mostly) premier wristbands collection. Only unique colors. Still, at least 20+ models more to go.

Not all were actually worn by Rafa in matches. Sometimes, for unknown reasons, he switched what was in the catalog for a different colorway. Other times, he used non-descript White/(Black) ones while I managed to get my hands on promo-release wristbands from a given collection that were perfectly color-coordinated with one of his outfits.

Very nice collection! I love how they're all still NIP! Keep 'em new!

I found some of my 15+ years old used premier wristbands while cleaning out my closets. I tried them on and they felt dried out. I can even hear the rubber/spandex cracking to expand. It's like today's heat-transferred Nike Swoosh logos. They end up cracking apart if you haven't used them in a while.

15+ years old? I always thought they were introduced only towards the business end of 2009. That's 12 years.

Care to post a picture of the wristbands you are referring to?

These are the specialized wristbands that survived storage. If they overstretched I ended up throwing them away. The white with red/blue and black with white horizontal striped ones are the 2006 ones if I remembered correctly. I tried the white w/blue ones on and it stretched immediately. I tried my smoke ones (bottom right) on and they stretched immediately also.

OK. I am slightly calmer now :) Most of the wristbands in the picture are cotton-based that the Nike-sponsored athletes used before 2010. They were significantly less durable than nylon-based. I see 3 premier ones: Sonic yellow/(Black) (2nd row, 4th col) Anthracite (bottom left), and Neptune blue/(White) (bottom row, 4th col).

You are right, the model with the horizontal top bar comes from 2006 (there were no nylon-based PREMIER wristbands back then). I remember Nadal had one at US Open (red stripe).

From the lot above, I see that you were mostly buying between 2006-2010.

Would you be so kind as to post the picture of the back packaging of the Anthracite/(White) premier wristbands (bottom left). BTW: They don't seem to be used at all.

Correct. Don't think I ever wore them. I also used the wristband cardboard inserts to reinforce my ribbons on my military uniforms.

:) With their latest packaging (since the beginning of '19), not only did Nike make it disposable (once opened) they also got rid of those cardboard inserts.

Now I need to cut open the packaging in order to put my own inserts.

I always wondered which is better: A) to leave them as I bought them or B) cut them open carefully so that I can reinforce the wristbands with those cardboards?

I would just keep them how they originally came. I noticed the cardboard still stretches them a bit. But even with or without the insert, they're still able to maintain the shape.

I see some doubles (e.g. cotton-based Action green/(White) in the bottom-right corner). Is it because you like the color so much? Didn't you manage to get your hands on the PREMIER variety?
I have doubles of some wristbands because of when I lived in Italy. I checked and had price tags with $ and € on them. Too good a price to pass up especially when I ran into rare ones.

My current Rafa hat collection. 1 cap - [398224-110] White/Black/(Total orange) from the HO11 collection - is missing from the picture as it is still waiting for shipment from a US storage unit.

Not as extensive but what I've found digging through the bins in my closet. Sad to say but 20 or so of my (general) Featherlight hats with heat-transferred logos/text did not survive. Looks like I'll be that old guy doing yardwork in colorful hats.

Mostly 1st generation Featherlights. The bill made them a little heavy but they my close second favorite.

Oh, and I see at least 5 missing from my lot (e.g. Gridiron/Black/(White) [398224-050] from SP11 collection) so I am instantly green with envy ;)

The bottom row, 3 and 4 from the left, are they both black (i.e. the same)?

Yes, the 1st generation hats were my favorite because they were embroidered. The heat-transferred logos for hats these days bleed and melt off staining everything in their path.

#3 is black w/white and #4 is obsidian w/white

Once again, amazing vintage collection!!!

I gotta ask though. What happened in Summer 2012 :)? You seem to have almost each and every hat released up to Spring 2012. After that, I only see the Vamos Rafa hat from around US Open 2012 (bottom row; 2nd from the right) and Armory navy/Black/(Atomic pink) [398224-441] from US Open 2013 (bottom row; 1st from the left) while the 1st generation Featherlights were continued up to Spring 2014.

Obsidian/(White)?! I wasn't aware of this particular colorway. Damn, that makes it 6 ;)!

The color code must be 451 (i.e. 398224-451). Do you perhaps know which collection it belongs to?
Sorry, but don't keep up as much as I used to remember what collection it came from.

No idea about SU12 other than I lived in Italy at the time. I was either touring the rest of Europe or helping more TTW OGs obtain European Nike Exclusives.

So how about the rf caps, which are the most rare and desirable? Those limited edition south american tour caps? The credit suisse signed ones and wimbledon pre 2010? Match for africa limited editions? :unsure:

Definitely the two Nike Featherlight embroidered RF hats are a rare, hot commodity these days. I have the white with obsidian RF and have always been on the hunt for the infamous black on black.

Doubt it. This does not have the embroidered RF but some kind of reflective design. The above was released for US Open 2013. There are a few on **** as I write this.

Is that it?
I have never seen this one before. I remember there being an embroidered swoosh somewhere on the side either on the bill or the side of the cap (much like the team featherlight hats). It does have all the info on the inside tag. If I come across mine again, I'll post the info.

I just came back just to take a look at your magnificent vintage collection.

Don't take it the wrong way but If a thought of re-selling some of the hats ever crosses your mind, write to me :)

What size are you? Every time I see a Federer jacket on sale (e.g. today, French Open 2010 in M), I immediately think of you.
Haha i have size L and XL sometimes (depends how cold it is here and how many layers i have to wear). But i have enough jackets now, lets say too much even haha
