Small world, I was bidding on this one also. Glad to hear at least who it was named to since the seller kept that a secret.

Nice Red Ball uniform

 

Picked this up several years ago and never took it off the hanger. I bought it from the man who got it at a garage sale. I was rearranging stuff and decided to see if the uniform was named and when I took the jacket off the hanger the shirt had a hidden surprise.

Nice! Love the red bull express uniforms! Still looking for an example though...

 

Crazy how many bidders were on the forum though, I'm guessing many people don't really know or care about the red bull express.

Man I would never have been able to resist looking for a name that long. I love the dog tag chain boarder especially with that tab, that and when they add the branch pipping around the boarder are probably my favorite modifications to see. I have only been able to find one of these for my collection on a 29th Division uniform (unfortunately unnamed).

That's an awesome Ike! I try to stick to named uniforms, but when I see that rare patch it's hard to resist...
