Does anyone have a really good picture of Lions melton-leather black jacket from 2003 that celebrated 50th season?

All I can find is this:

Can you take a few pics of the sleeves and back that have all the old Lions logos and the patches with each Grey Cup winning year.

Many thanks if you could do that for me :beauty:

I have one as well, but a couple of things...

That's not what that jacket was. Roots made those in 2002 for all the teams. I discovered it after Adam Rita wore one on the sidelines in a late season game. Roots, I think, only made and sold those in 2002 and 2003. They are fantastic and I wish they'd make them again.

They came with the Grey Cup patches, and Roots continued to make the patches for subsequent Grey Cups. I was able to order a 2006 patch when they won. I no longer wore the jacket in 2011 (weight loss means I'm too small for the jacket) so I don't know if they made the patch for 2011. I ordered mine through the retail store at the club directly.

Pictures. The left sleeve has the current logo. The right has the Grey Cup Championship footballs.

So any chance you would be open to parting with it? :wink:

I am a svelte XL....well, XL anyways. Maybe not so svelte :roll:

Looks like Cromartie beat me to the punch! Who did you order the Grey Cup patches through? Lions or Roots? I would like to get the '06 and '11 patches for my jacket.

Cheers

At this point, it has sat in my closet here since 2010, so I'd be open to finding it a home. It is, however, a 3XL so David you'd more or less have to eat like an American for at least a year or two to fit in it.

The patch was ordered directly through the BC Lions retail store. I honestly don't know if they ever made a 2011.
