A few days ago I referenced the appearance of Alan Trammell and Lou Whitaker on Tom Selleck’s hit show, Magnum P.I. Here is a video clip of the scene which is supposed to take place in a bar in Detroit:
I was in desperate need because of a upcoming event to make purchase I could get same day while searching for the item I quickly realized there wasn't just limited availability of the item but very limited locations in Metro Detroit i could purchase the item. the Nearest to me was Vintage. I put the location into google maps off I went. As I approached the area I quickly realized I was in more an industrial & commercial area then retail. As i pulled in I quickly understood this was a warehouse & office thinking this is a internet retailer.
With the OPEN sign light I though well came all this way just aswell give it a try and am I glad I did.
The people there are awesome and they clearly don't get much walk in business however they know their product while intending in only buying one jersey I walked out with much more!
I found it refreshing to be served by people who truly knew everything and who came across as glad i stopped in and only care about me getting the service beyond what i deserved.
These were not temp help that knew nothing these were professionals who knew not just everything but were truly looking out for me. I ended up buy a very nice winter Tiger jacket and as I tried it on and decided on it they noticed a very minor blemish on the back and quickly informed me I had a hard time even seeing it & probably would have never noticed it. The thing is I said " no big deal" yet they would let me leave with it they got another one from their very advanced warehouse. They checked it over and off I went.
You just dont get this type of service anywhere else folks and turns out it all to be a great value as well as they search the system for every possible discount they could give me.
I highly recommend if you live within a 30 minute drive of this place and you are looking for authentic NBA NFL and MB items stop in and see them they also have a lot of very rare items which will make you stand out.

Purchased a New Era Gruff Michigan Syaye hat, and I absolutely love it. I was a little concerned it would let look as good as I hoped, but when I put it on, I loved it. Quick shipping as well.

Just ordered the military green Lions shirt and couldn't be happier. Service and shipping were exceptional. Kept me posted every step of the way, literally. We will definitely be dealing with Vintage Detroit again.

Recently got a blank jersey stitched at Vintage Detroit and the finished product looks awesome! I don't live nearby so the ability to have it shipped for $10 was well worth the cost. Paul was great to work with and offered to delay shipping when I told him I would be on vacation on the original delivery date. Thank you so much, I can't wait to wear my jersey to a Wings game!

I placed an order and received a follow up call within 24 hrs due to item was not available. Lynn worked with me to swap out to something similar excellent customer service. Excited to work with Vintage Detroit on future orders.
One reply on “Alan Trammell & Lou Whitaker on Magnum P.I.“
Northville Magnum Fan
I remember when this scene first aired on Magnum P.I. To me, the credit belongs to the program writers for Whitaker’s brilliant remark: “We’ll be between 1st and 3rd.” And for Selleck’s reply: “There’s no seats between 1st and 3rd.” Thanks, Steve, for resurrecting it.
