Maglia Rosa question

Serious question .... who wore this jersey?  Levi L?


Biosphere

Why not Contador? I know it does look a bit pink for 2008, but am I missing some obvious tell?

Edit: Quite different to 2008 when I look properly. Which year is it?
Biosphere

Off topic, but I'll stick it here in case you're looking for some memorabilia from this year. This book was available yesterday at news stands with the paper (or maybe from yesterday as I know I bought a similar one a few days after the release date last year). Can order online as well by the looks of it (Prenota)

The Pink Shark . . . sounds like a club in Soho Wink

I'm pretty certain it's from 2009 ... but I'm absolutely certain Astana never led the GC in 2009.

2009 was the edition with the long ITT which Levi was expected to win. Could they have had it on stand-by round back, just in case?

2010?

Bartali

Thanks guys.  It's 2009 as Beasley says (Dolce & Gabbana collar).  Astana didn't lead on GC ... but would LL (or their no.1 rider) start the prologue/stage 1 in pink as defending champion??  The seller is pretty reputable so I don't think its a dud.

Astana were Specialized that year. Trek in Bart's photo.
Beasley

2009 started with a TTT, so they would have been in skinsuits.

Hang on, the Champ in Rome...



Notice the writing on the shoulder.

Better angle...



Perhaps Bartali's was a promotional number they had printed up for the route presentation?
Bartali

Interesting!  Thanks Beasley .... no deal then!!
HuwB

I wondered why folks were convinced it was 2009, but it took me a while to find the little Trek logo. I can see it's missing one pretty obvious logo!
I was going to say 2009 started with an ITT. Pretty sure no stand in would be allowed to wear the pink in any case.
Number 1 sure, but that's it.
Bartali

Apparently the Santini logos are there ... just out of view.  So, either its a fake or something knocked up for (say) LL just in case.  Too expensive to risk it ...

Thanks all ...

This doesn't help identify the year of the jersey, but it does explain the printing of the podium jerseys, so I don't think it's been "made-up" for LL just in case:

Interesting, MJ.

Frankly, it looks too good to be fake. I know people can do wonders with photoshop nowadays, but if so that's a very professional job.

Plus, if it were counterfeit, why no slap Rabo or LPR on the front?

Does the seller not give an explanation were it came from?

The seller isn't from Texas by any chance?? Wink  Wink

I know, I found it fascinating as I'd always wondered how they got the jerseys done so quickly.
Bartali

Just lost out on this .... gutted!!!   Crying or Very sad


gerry12ie

Is that Roche's jersey?
Bartali

Visentini's from 86.  Humph ... I thought I had it, but someone bid crazy money with 5 seconds to go.
Bartali

Not my cup of tea but it made me smile ...


Bartali

But this is my cup of tea ....


Beasley

Memorabilia's never been my thing - nor do I know anyone who's really into collectables - but I've always wondered how these things find there way into the market.

The obvious way is via the rider, but even though Nibali led the GC for a good few days, in the whole scheme of things there aren't many floating about.
Bartali

This is on ebay for nearly eight grand!  Shocked  Shocked





Bartali

Real or not?  I don't think it is but would value others opinions ...


Beasley

If it is kosher, it's well before my time!
