A Stroll Through Time: Shopping for Vintage Football Jerseys in Mexico City

Picture this: a mosaic of culture, football, and the pure, unabashed buzz of Mexico City. There's me, exploring Roma Norte, a neighborhood that's like a slice of bohemian pie with a dollop of modern art. And there it is, El Jugador Número 12 - not just a store, but a treasure trove where football jerseys hang like relics of a time when the game was just that - a game.

For a moment, as I glide through racks of vintage Mexican league glories, I'm reminded that every jersey has a tale, and I'm here to give it a listen (corny? yeah but lol).

The narrative didn't end there. I stumbled upon Es de Epoca, a spot that's like a love letter to football written in coffee stains and shutter clicks. It's like stepping into a painting where everything is football, yet it's not. It's life. This place, with its bold mural that you've just gotta see, is the triple threat of vintage shops: sip your coffee, snap your pics, and swoon over soccer. A place so intertwined with passions, it's palpable.

And listen, you can't just skim over this mural – it's a storybook wall painted in the hues of history, a character deeply absorbed in the lore of football victories, encircled by the holy trinity: the java, the jerseys, the journalism of visuals. It’s the DNA of Es de Epoca, and it’s downright inspiring.

So, if your soul is stitched in the fabric of football, your mind develops thoughts like film, and your heart beats to the rhythm of authenticity, then make your way to these spots. El Jugador Número 12 and Es de Epoca,  and by the way, there's more than just these 2 shops in Mexico City, this is a city where your passions will echo in the alleyways, and your spirit will soar like a well-kicked ball into the net of the past.
