As many of us know, as we watch the games, we find ourselves observing jerseys, looking for marks, commenting about how we saw good wear on the jersey.
While you are watching the games, think about pausing your DVR and snapping a picture when you see a good mark, cataloging the photos. Also, consider keeping the recorded image. This forum post describes how to pull video from your DVR which can be used to edit video to highlight the wear we can see on jerseys.
You may not get that jersey yourself, but you may know the new owner and they would be appreciative of your hard work in matching! We can use this data to construct a database which would prove valuable in the ID of jerseys as well.
Also, don’t forget to watch the game!
