    It arrived today v. 8.0

    The space where the arm number goes is much smaller on the game worn jersey. The early 90's LA Kings jerseys had the same issue. The (white/black) area the arm numbers are placed could vary a lot from jersey to jersey.

    Either your jersey is a much larger size, or your sleeve numbers are smaller.

    you are right.... but how can there then be the same amount of space at the top then? Up to the orange yoke https://www.gamewornauctions.net/products/1989_90_Randy_Gregg_Edmonton_Oilers_Stanley_Cup_Finals_Game_Worn_Jersey_1990_Stanley_Cup_Finals_Team_Letter-7274-171.html

    I believe for the home jerseys that year, the sleeve numbers line up right at the top blue stripe.

    The Patch Thread 2.0

    Does anyone know where I might be able to find an original authentic Blackhawks WWW patch that was worn during the 2007-2008 season? I’m not sure if these were even sold by the team so maybe all that was ever available were replicas or in the rare case taking one off of a GI. Would rather pay for the real thing if they’re actually out there. Anyone know?

    This is my peeve when it comes to stripping and re-customizing game worn/GI jerseys. Unless it's stamped on, there is no valid reason not to remove any sewn on team,set,MG, etc., tagging especially if it's something you plan on reselling at some point.

    I'm with you, especially with Adidas not selling MIC authentic jerseys at retail. I'm going to be in Vancouver next month, likely to pic up a gamer depending on how 56 fits me and I will feel no shame whatsoever stripping it. Just goes without saying to also remove any tagging that identifies it as game worn.

    Game Issued vs. Authentic Jerseys

    Nope, no difference. I wouldn’t pay extra for a GI/TI than a regular authentic. The fact that the team had them and never used them is irrelevant to me. Especially where, with the Reebok Edge especially, team issued blanks are everywhere and you can get them done by the team customizer. I'm also the kind of person who won't strip a GI/GW ever. Even if it's a no-name player and it was only used in training camp, it shouldn't be altered. Of course, the Adidas issues with the whole “not so authentic” Indonesian Authentics adds a different wrinkle, those are obviously inferior. I strip the sh!t out of those all the time and I feel nothing.

    I'd still put the GI over the authentic no matter whose name is on it. Even though we've recently seen a replica used as a gamer, a GI is still intended to be used on-ice. An authentic isn't. The scale goes replica-authentic-TI-GI-GW. I'm also the kind of person who won't strip a GI/GW ever. Even if it's a no-name player and it was only used in training camp, it shouldn't be altered.

    I realized a while back that I heavily favored star authentics over no-game GI's. Honestly, it even influenced my decision not to grab the most recent Hawks WC. I just knew I wouldn't like having a nobody on that jersey, and paying a grand for the privilege would have made it so much worse.

    It looks so unusual given the present state of the game.

    Game Issued vs. Authentic Jerseys

    No difference to me if we're talking GI vs TI with proper customization. Because from a value perspective, only collectors pay attention, and none of you would pay more if I was selling one vs the other. Id rather have a CSL customized star player TI/Authentic than a GI bottom role player even if price is equal.

    Game Issued vs. Authentic Jerseys

    Makes zero difference to me. The only actual difference is the reinforced fight strap which doesn't add any value (to me). The necktag can easily be removed on Reebok era jerseys if you wanted to match the look of a TI.

    Game Issued vs. Authentic Jerseys

    If I have it - it's worth more If I'm looking to buy it, it's worth the same as a retail authentic Which would I rather own, I'd rather have a team issued. How much more would I be willing to spend.... probably not much, unless it's the exact size the player wore and done up by the team, then I could see it being worth a little more. To each their own I guess, if it make you feel better about it then that's they way to go

    Game Issued vs. Authentic Jerseys

    In my eyes, a game issued jersey is just a jersey that was properly customized by the team’s customizer. So, it shouldn’t hold any more value than that. But, people like to think they have more value because they were in the team's possession. So, to me, I wouldn’t pay (or try to sell) a GI jersey for any more than I could get for that exact jersey if I had bought it blank and sent it to the team’s customizer myself. The only exception (to me) would be a backup goalie’s jersey that never saw game action. Since those were worn during warmups and when sitting on the bench I would think they would command a higher price.

    Game Issued vs. Authentic Jerseys

    I did a quick check and didn't see a topic directly about this, but I know it has been talked about. I just wanted to see everyone general opinion between the two in a general value side of things. Would a jersey that was produced by the team for use for a player be more collectible/valuable then a standard authentic jersey? I would assume if it was the exact same player, the answer would be yes. But what if it was a game issued jersey for a fringe NHLer in comparison to a star player authentic? As a Hawks fan, I am just use this as an example; these are not actual jerseys which I have or could obtain: a game issued Carl Dahlstrom Game Issued jersey vs. a Patrick Kane Authentic Jersey. Would there be a difference if the jersey was from a specialty game (Winter Classic/Stadium Series/Stanley Cup)? Or is the general consensus an issued jersey basically the same an an authentic jersey until it is actually used in a game.
