  5. Hey all, I like hockey jersey patches, and one of my favorites is the hard to find NYI 20th Anniversary patch. The ones I have I purchased from a private seller who obtained them from the equipment manager of the Isles at the time, so I was confident they were originals. Two patches were made, one without the navy blue border for the away (blue) jerseys and a larger one with the blue border for the home white. In my constant search to obtain more of these patches, I found one being marketed on a site called "Global Authentics", so I figured it must be the real deal, but when I saw the image of the patch, it had some obvious inconsistencies to the originals. This (fake?) patch has an additional white border around the blue border. The blue color was also very light, almost a baby blue vs. a navy. also, the shadows of the 4 cups in the background are much more pronounced in the originals. it seems like I answered my own question, but since I saw the patch in question on a site that seems to pride themselves on authentic and historically accurate stuff, I wanted to see what you guys thought. The image with the two patches are the ones from the Islander equipment manager, the second the patch in question, and the last two are patches on gamers form that season both away and home versions. Also, in a market where people are constantly reproducing versions of the older patches for the retail market, why have they not done this patch in any kind of volume? this seems like an attempt to copy the original, but not a very good one, I guess. Any opinions would be much appreciated...

    I got a MIC NA team issue from the World Cup of hockey today from JB. Not sure it's the same as NHL Authentics. But I actually love it. Adizero Authentic isn't even close.

    I think your post contains what you should call Giroux; Red Neckbeard works perfectly.

    I could be 100yrs old and in a coma - hearing the sounds of that series will always give me goosebumps.

    Yeah I see that too in some of those groups. Like I said in an earlier post these groups are only as good as the moderation. Some mods allow that other memorabilia while others want strictly game worn/game used. That also brings up a big issue with the large group. I wish it wouldn't be game worn everything. I think the minors and juniors stuff should be left to those groups while the foreign leagues to another group. It would help a lot with trying to find what you are looking for as well as market what you are trying to sell as now you have your target audience's eyesballs in the right place.
  18. Photo Hosting

    I stopped storing pictures after the Photobucket thing; I upload stuff to post in the forum there, but then I just basically abandon them. Any pictures I wish to store, I keep elsewhere. So the only issue for me will be, where am I going to upload my future memes for forum use?

    You have until May 25th

    Yeah I don't follow anyone else's jersey except Cubs. In the World Series the Cubs ONLY wore blue when away, IIRC. So does the pitcher decide for the series or just the game? Both Lester and Hendricks pitched in the WS but I don't remember them wearing grey against Cleveland. I also think Lester wore blue in the WS. Thanks for the info thus far, by the way.
  21. *Dumb Question Alert* Re: Facebook Groups

    Good point. Most of the team groups are tightly knit and there are fewer clowns. My problem with the team groups is that the mods allow just about anything with a team logo. I was in the Predators group last year for a week because I was trying to track down a rookie camp gamer and was overwhelmed by the number of programs, autographed pucks, and sticks. Finally had to leave the Sabres group too ... just too much gear.

    White uniforms are designated Home, Grey uniforms are designated Road for all teams in the league. However, some teams have alternate jersey that can be worn both home and away like the Cubs Blue jersey, Most teams have some type of alternate jersey they can wear either home or away. I can't speak of how the other teams choose to wear their jersey as I don't follow them as closely as I do the Cubs. If you look at Jon Lester, he never picks the blue alternate. It's almost always the White at Home and the Grey on the Road. However, I think Hendricks almost always prefers the Blue Alternate, like in game 7 of the 2016 World Series:
  23. *Dumb Question Alert* Re: Facebook Groups

    Collecting jerseys is more of an addiction to a lot of people in those groups than a hobby. I guess you just gotta take it for what it is and you will never stop those guys who always ask if you are selling. Posting in the team specific groups tends to eliminate a chunk of that sort of thing from happening, but you never will completely avoid it.

    True, the Cubs wore those light blue pinstriped 70s jerseys a couple years ago as well as the "player" or little league jerseys. But all the teams did so at the same time (I think?) so the road/alt question doesn't really apply. Ultimately, the answer is that the pitcher decides as long as the colors are not too close to the opposing team.

    The Rucinsky is legit. The incorrect spelling was accounted for in the Population Report for that year.

    Dear God, that Penguins is so fake that it hurts to look at it.
  27. *Dumb Question Alert* Re: Facebook Groups

    They also come across as very sarcastic/douchbaggish/dickish and greedy. I only ever posted on one of the groups because I had a question about a couple of practice jerseys I had. I was clearly not selling them, but the only responses I got were "how much" and "are you selling". It seems like a pretty toxic and greedy environment. It feels like people are more concerned with adding more jerseys to their own collection than the hobby itself.
