Lee Southren hooked me up with an old box lacrosse stick from the Mohawk Lacrosse Stick Manufacturing Company and since the pocket was a little beat up, I took it out and threw a brand new traditional pocket in there. It came out beautifully, and when I played wall ball with it yesterday.
Tommy Gilligan is usually shooting amazing lacrosse photos, but today he is helping out at a yard sale in New York, and he came across a true gem… an old plastic Brine goalie stick from Geneseo State!
There are a lot of really nice old wooden sticks out there, and there are a number of stick makers who do fantastic work.

Once all the old lacrosse gear in the world is gone, it’s gone. So take advantage of this rare opportunity to stock up on mint condition, late 80 to early 90s lax gear. It’s there for the taking. And very affordable!

The Chisholm Lacrosse Manufacturing Company, founded by Colin Chisholm and operated on Cornwall Island, was one of the world’s leading producers of hand-crafted lacrosse sticks decades ago, with dozens of Mohawk stick makers working for the business in its prime.
The Vintage Vault features another wondrous and possibly forgotten piece of lacrosse history as we look at a stick created decades ago, when lacrosse was just starting to really pick up in the United States, by a company billing itself as School House Industries.
