We May Have Found The Best Retro Jersey Store On Depop

If you're anything like us, you've spent hours trawling through the darkest recesses of the Internet looking for some niche sporting memorabilia.

Those hours turn to days turn to weeks, and all your left with is bags under your eyes and a deep-seated feeling of regret.

Well, what if we told you that we've unearthed an utter gem of a Depop store that caters for nearly every sports fan under the sun?

No longer will you spend hours hammering away at Google searching for keywords that never lead you to gold. Instead, you'll be placing items into your basket at a rate of knots, before taking a number of them out again just as swiftly in order to balance the books.

The store in question is Emerald Isle Sports, or @retroni on Depop.

It's based in County Armagh and is littered with utter gold that spans across all sports, from GAA to the NFL.

We've assembled ten of our favourite items from their stellar collection, but there are hundreds more to dive into and gawk at.

Middle East GAA Jersey - £19.99

When you think of classic GAA kits, your mind darts straight to Middle East GAA, of course.

This is an insanely unique jersey, an impressive addition to anyone's collection (and it's an absolute bargain).

Kevin Durant Seattle Supersonics Jersey - £9.99

This jersey is a time capsule of a crossroads in NBA history. It's Kevin Durant's rookie jersey, the start of his ascension to superstardom and a Hall of Fame career.

However, it's also the last jersey ever worn by the Seattle Supersonics before their move to Oklahoma City in 2008.

You can rock a piece of basketball history for the price of a large spicebag meal.

Ireland 1999-01 Jersey - £49.99

You're going to have to pay a premium to get yourself a retro Ireland kit, but this one's a belter.

The first Ireland jersey to have an Eircom sponsor and with a unique cotton feel, you'll be toasty in it for sure.

Stade Francais Jersey - £19.99

There was a period of time in the late 2000s when Stade Francais and Adidas ruled the roost when it came to outlandish rugby jerseys.

This belter is no different, the pink accents are as striking as their iconic lightening bolts.

Deoin Sanders Dallas Cowboys Jersey - £19.99

This is another piece that showcases the range that @retroni is this classic Dallas Cowboys piece.

You'll be rocking a Deion Sanders 'Prime Time' piece, one of the NFL's (and MLB's) greatest characters.

Dublin GAA 2002 Away Jersey - £14.99

This is the pinnacle of O'Neill's early 2000s gradients, and although we could've plumped for the home variation of this template, the away is just as striking.

For £14.99, you're getting a modern classic. Furthermore, you can ensure that people won't call you a glory hunter.

Celtic Away Jersey 2000/01 - £29.99

When the summer arrives, your choice of clobber should be 'taps aff' or a retro Celtic selection.

The muted mustard tone of this twenty year-old gem is perfect for a beautiful summer's day filled with cheap cider and old trance tunes.

2005 Lions Training Jersey Green - £29.99

It's a Lions summer, so any discerning rugby fan will want to deck themselves out for the series.

Rather than plumping for a new outfit, how about diving into the archives with this beauty? It's also green, so you can solely support our eight players in Warren Gatland's squad.

FC Tokyo Training Jersey - £9.99

Another extraordinarily unique piece, one that you should be tripping over yourself to get.

It's from Japan, lads, we can't sell it much more than that.

Kerry 2015 Home Jersey - £29.99

You can evoke your inner James O'Donoghue with this 2015 piece with 15 on the front and back.

Just don't talk about the 2015 All-Ireland Final...
