Come and get it

The athletics department will host a rummage sale before Saturday’s basketball doubleheader.

Fans will be able to buy authentic apparel from their favorite teams beginning at 3:30 p.m. and ending at either halftime or when apparel is sold out.

Rick Love, associate director of athletics, said fans would be able to buy items such as jerseys.

“We’ll have things from football, soccer, volleyball, baseball and basketball,” said Trevor Parks, YSU’s sports information director. “The football jerseys won’t be last year’s. They’ll be four or five years old.”

Love and Parks said that every item would be reasonably priced, with most items between $5 and $10.

“We just want to give fans the opportunity to get gear from their teams,” Love said.

All proceeds from the sale will go back to the athletics department. Last year’s sale generated around $1,000, Love said.

Parks added that the sale has been planned for the past few years.

Love said the sale takes place when apparel from the equipment room needs cleaned out.

“We held a sale last year, and we already need to make more room,” Love said.

Both agreed that the rummage sale is all about the fans.

“It’s a really neat thing to do. We’ve had a lot of fans for a long time. … It’s just neat to give them the chance to get authentic YSU team gear,” Parks said.

“This is more about fans getting gear than anything,” Love added.
