Welcome to the daily series “In Search Of,” where we look high and low on Krrb for one-of-a-kind items that we must have now! Today, it’s all about “retro sporting goods” and we’ve got loads of them.

Old-school sporting goods might not help you win any tournaments, but they sure look cool! The retro designs and quality make them fun for displaying and admiring. Here are some of our favorite pieces of vintage athletic equipment on Krrb.
