    It arrived today v. 8.0

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

    Mfitz804’s shiny new sale thread

    BUMP. Just the two patches still available. Will take $10 shipped for the pair.
  3. New Jersey Devils All Star Sleeve patch. One small dark mark along the top border, otherwise as new. $6 shipped in the US via first class in a plain white envelope, add $2 for tracking in a bubble mailer braced with cardboard.

    Elias has been successfully stripped of his alternate captaincy. Thanks for the help guys!
  5. I had to pull off an alternate captain's "A" that I added to a jersey by mistake. I am not really comfortable working with acetone. Are there any easier methods of glue removal I can try before I have to resort to that? I'm very disappointed in myself. Always check your photo references, even if you THINK you know!!

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

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

    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?

    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.
  10. 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.

    It's red. I happened to be driving past Home Depot and I bought two products. One is Goo Gone Pro-Power Goo and Adhesive Remover. The other is Goof Off Pro Strength Remover. I will start with the less harsh Goo Gone, and go from there. And, why not, I'll document it with pictures. We'll start with a picture of my A, like all good threads should.

    I like that Mentos are still Mentos in Moscow. I assume the other word is Russian for "The Freshmaker".

    It is good or not?

    I believe I would pay $180 for the Devils 1.0 I am looking for. Based on my typical habits, that’s about $50 more than anyone else on earth would pay for it.

    Or, who don't care. Not everybody is obsessed with jerseys. I hear some people only have one or two!!

    *Dumb Question Alert* Re: Facebook Groups

    I don't suppose its dedicated to not liking them or how to spot them so you don't buy one by accident.
  19. Aren’t the stripes on Ultrafil typically NOT sublimated, but rather the different colors are just knit together? That said, it does look like Ultrafil.

    So cool! Love the ProPlayers, and of course they are rare because they were only used that one year. And a good player too, was nice to see Claude on the game broadcast the other night. VERY nice pickup, my man.

    I can’t tell, but I definitely think those numbers are made of crap material, the way it’s just worn away. Definitely not an improvement and I’m glad my team didn’t go with them.
