  1. Adidas NHL On Ice Jersey

    Maybe they're. Enter than the Indo...or at least based on the template in use.
  2. Adidas NHL On Ice Jersey

    This is in line with the idea that they will cost $200.
  3. EPS Spring Sale 2017

    An event of mythic proportions, I felt it worthy of its own thread, so here it is. Thus far, we've seen the Facebook hint that a sale should be forthcoming. In conversation with Josh from EPS, I was informed today that the sale "will take place sometime in March". Not "may", not "should", but will. I have a grand total of two jerseys waiting, gonna save me a quick $26!!! Still time to add blanks, I suppose. Anyhow, we can now use this thread for sale related conversation and the eventual posting of the start of the sale and the necessary code. I have a ton of experience sending them stuff (as do others), so if anyone has questions about them, we can field those too. ***Disclaimer; I have been accused of being somehow "related" to EPS before, basically just because I talk them up a lot. That is not, has not, and will never be the case. I'm just a Devils fan and they are the Devils' customizer, so it adds up that way.
  4. Mfitz804's sale thread: The Jersey-Go-Round

    Bump with a few price drops.
  5. 1994 NHL Eastern Conference All Star, size 56. Customized as Roy with a signature on one of the back numbers. Worn but in excellent condition for a jersey of this age with no flaws to report. These are hard to find as authentics and harder in a 56. $199 shipped, and as a nod to my Canadian friends, I will ship to eastern Canada for that price also. Western Canadians, I'll have to double check the cost.
  6. It arrived today v. 8.0

    Never. Enough. Patches.
  7. Adidas NHL On Ice Jersey

    I'll be happy as will my wallet.
  8. Adidas NHL On Ice Jersey

    I'm not sure there's a clear answer yet on any of those, just rampant speculation.
  9. 2017-2018 Jersey Watch

    As a Devils fan, I personally have larger concerns than a couple stripes. Our fan base resists change, there have been multiple such issues in the past 5 or so years. Bottom line, changing the jerseys does t have anything to do with whether management cares about the team or the fans. And anyone who calls the team over something like that has way more free time on their hands than I do.

    #1 overall looks awesome in the new Devs.

    That I do. I may be American but my sense of humor is razor sharp.
  12. It arrived today v. 8.0

    Its ok, we'll get you in on the deal too, just like last time...
  13. It arrived today v. 8.0

    This one came back today from getting its nameplate switched due to incorrect font. From this, which has the standard "white layer too thin" non-EPS font: To this, which I know differs slightly from the Custom Crafted font of the era but it still is a major improvement: This one is my "go-to" lately, so it was well worth the $30. I also had them replace the 2000 SCF Finals patch, because whomever had this one before me sewed it on with the hard plastic backing still attached, and I hate that. Still dealing with EPS on this next one, where they improperly placed a Captain's C and I had to have them move it. Doesn't look like they were able to get (or tried to get) the glue residue off from the prior placement. I can't be 100% sure, it looks like something that might press out, but I am waiting for a reply from EPS first.

    Screw that, that's gonna be the crest for my beer league team. Everyone fears the Blue Peters.

    What do you want for it?
  16. Adidas NHL On Ice Jersey

    That's right. I remember feeling lucky that my team was one of the cheaper ones.
  17. Adidas NHL On Ice Jersey

    $200 was the cost of a fully customized authentic when I bought my first one. I still remember being like "wow, that is a lot more than a blank replica".
  18. Mfitz804's sale thread: The Jersey-Go-Round

    New Jersey Devils Pro Player Authentic, Size 56. Came to me as a pre-season that was stripped. The old number was 23 and it covered 99.99%, one small area on the back where you can see the very edge of a prior number. Has some evidence of wear and two small repairs in the front hem. Customized by EPS with an authentic NHL2000 patch and a repro 2000 SCF patch. Has a proper Pro Player material nameplate. $150 shipped.
  19. Adidas NHL On Ice Jersey

    That's a very good observation. To be honest, Adidas will make a LOT less money selling jerseys. Normal people are satisfied with a replica, that's why when I go to a game it's usually 95% replicas and fakes and 5% authentics, which includes older CCM stuff, not just Edge. If they want to make money, they have to prove the authentics better, otherwise everyone will just get the Fanatics replica. Present company excluded, of course.
  20. Adidas NHL On Ice Jersey

    I'm from the school of thought that the Edge jerseys were always ridiculously overpriced. A pro jersey for $200 was expected pre-2007.
  21. I find myself so bored looking for jerseys that I like, that often I wind up buying things I sold to other people that they decide to put back up for sale. I have at least 5 in my collection currently (those are the ones I can think of off the top of my head without looking), and I have another three that are "on their way home". I did the math on all of them (despite my rule of NEVER doing the math on ANYTHING jersey related), and between the 8, I didn't lose any money. It begs the question, if you're just gonna re-buy them, why the heck did you sell them in the first place. Answers vary between boredom, funding another purchase, and/or changing your mind about collecting a subset of jerseys. Anyone else engage in this kind of nonsense?
  22. *Dumb Question Alert* Re: Facebook Groups

    Still love you, man.
  23. Anyone else have "Reacquisition Syndrome"?

    Oh wow, you wanted that jersey back almost immediately! I'm glad you were able to get it. If I recall correctly, I wound up taking cash considerations in that deal. Originally I was to receive a jersey back that I had sold to AF, but he later changed his mind and kept the Jersey, giving me cash instead. Bus, as I do, I did later rebuy that jersey from AF, and even more as I do, I have sold it again.

    Why does anyone care what that guy Creamer says about anything?
