Brahim “Brian” Estephan’s 1996 Ironmen Jt Jersey

About a year back I took photos of one of Brahim “Brian” Estephan’s Jerseys that Paul Schreck had in his collection. The jersey looks practically new and I think Paul told me “Brian” had only worn it a couple of times, one of which was for a video.

Recently I was watching the 1996 ESPN Paintball World Championship video of the Paraplegic Turtles against the Ironmen that that Dale Price had uploaded onto youtube and saw that Estephan is wearing this jersey in the video.

The Ironmen are ranked 1st entering the tournament but end up loosing to the Turtles.  Estephen gets shot out at around the 14 minute mark (out of a 20 minute game) and can be seen wearing this jersey as he walks off the field and talks with Fred Shultz on the sidelines.

Brahim’s cocker appears to be the stock cocker that he mainly used. The inline is like a unireg (or violater/prophecy) and the hpa system is likely an early raptor or Fred Shultz tank.

Estephan is also wearing his clear Spectra goggles in his brief interview with Fred Shultz. These goggle were known for cracking almost instantly and very few have survived the test of time.
