    eBay version 4.0

    I used today’s code PERFECTGAME (15% off sporting goods) on a jersey. I thought it all depends on what category the item is listed in. Mine was listed by MeiGray, not as sporting goods. But it still worked!!

    It’s a source of much consternation for some Devils fans, but I agree with you.

    I had never noticed that black band at the bottom of the jersey before, I guess it gets hidden with the black pants.....I like it...

    There could be a way out of that one for you if you decide that’s what needs to happen.

    The Patch Thread 2.0

    I am curious about what others think about the terminology used in describing patches. At least the way I see it, a patch could be “legit” and still be a “repro.” For example, I would consider National Emblem’s current 1992 SC100 patch to be “legit,” since it is made by the company which is officially licensed by the NHL to produce them. But it’s still a repro, since it was made 25 years after the originals were produced, and they have enough differences that one can easily tell them apart from originals. But there’s a bigger gray area when it comes to more recent patches. The 2007 SCF patch for example, was made by National Emblem back in the day and is still being made by them today. However, if you were to buy one of those in the new NE packaging from a company like Patch Collection, you’re almost certainly getting a patch that was manufactured very recently, maybe even less than a year ago. So you could say that the patch is legit but it’s a newer edition, certainly not an “original” from 2007. So when does a patch, after its original release date, stop being called an “original” and becomes a “repro?” Immediately after the first edition/batch? When it starts to look different? I don’t really know. In this case however, I couldn’t see any significant difference between the 2007 SCF patch in the Patch Collection’s listing, and the patch used on the gamers. So the version sold by Patch Collection is “legit,” but is it really a “repro” if it was made by the same company that did the gamer patches, and it still looks exactly the same as the gamer patches? What do you guys think about this? Even if the patches in all 3 posted listings look the same, I still recommended the one I posted (or the one posted by JJM4, even if the price is higher), because it is sealed in the older National Emblem packaging, which I believe was used back in the 2nd half of the decade of the 2000’s. I would think these are leftover stock from way back then, and are more likely to be an earlier (if not original) version of the patch.

    Now I feel like they should’ve named that team the Vegas Golden Pony Boys.

    Sorry to chime in late (stupid work) I agree with 100% of what LAK posted. I would wash the jersey and straight out of the wash while it's still damp, hit it directly on the fabric with a LOT of steam and that outline will be gone. Then let it hang dry and yer golden pony boy!

    I’ll see what I can do.Should have left it alone.

    I’ve done it directly on the fabric and it turned out fine. (Just a quick pass or two) Note that I would only make this suggestion with the lightest of residue lines, not something potentially messier. I wouldn’t want your jersey to be ruined, and I’m assuming your residue situation is similar to mine, but of course I can’t be absolutely sure without seeing it myself.
  22. mfitz804

    I’m kind of tiring of it. My plan is pretty much to sell this jersey anyway, I was just trying to make it correct before I sold it. Probably not the best idea, I probably should have sold as is. I’m going to wash and press it and see what happens. When you say that the residue comes out with the iron, are you ironing directly on the fabric, or through a sheet or towel?
  23. LAK74

    That looks like glue. What usually happens with me is that when the residue is that light, passing the iron over it with steam just vaporizes the residue and it comes out automatically with the ironing. If the residue is heavier, I won’t dare iron it because it might fuse into the fabric. But with light residue like that, it always seems to come out with the iron, at least for me.

    As it dries, I’m still seeing an outline. I can’t tell if it’s glue or just the compression of the fabric. I will wash it tonight and press it out. Then we’ll see where we are at.

    That residue is minimal and probably would have come off with acetone as well. For real thick residue, acetone doesn’t seem as effective to me because it evaporates so quickly, sometimes within a few seconds. Goof-off soaks into the material and softens the residue over a longer period of time, so I use that for the more messy residue jobs.
  26. The stripes are not dyed into the jersey, the different colors are woven right into the material. I don't know if there is a name for that process.

    Ok, so I went at it with the Goo Gone, and nothing. Like you predicted. Oh well, I use it around the house for some things so it won't go to waste. The Goof Off, however, that seems to have done the trick. I started by applying it with a cotton swab and this did a pretty good job on most of it. On the stubborn areas, I just poured it right on and then scrubbed it with the cotton swab. I then liberally rinsed it with cold water, and then washed the area with a little mild soap and rinsed again. It'll get a full wash this evening. I would note, I have a raging sinus infection and cannot even smell the Goof Off, which may be good and may be bad. I could totally be high on the fumes right now. The only time I smelled it was when I stupidly took a deep whiff of the fabric after rinsing to see if I got the smell out. Not even close, that was a strong odor right there. Looking at it now, there's a little pilling/fuzz I may have to hit with a fabric shaver. It could be bits of cotton swab that are stuck and will come off in the wash. Waiting for it to dry but I think we've had success here.
  28. Thanks LAK74! It is all the way through, so I'm using the wrong term. So what is the process called in this case where the dye has been saturated all the way through? Now im thinking I should keep this (I can turn it into a Tavares and make my Leaf fan friends jealous!)...
