  1. It arrived today v. 8.0

    This was something I planned on doing with two of my stripping projects in order to remove the massive amounts of glue that's left. Was concerned about damaging the fabric

    Where can one buy these?!?!
  3. It arrived today v. 8.0

    Sorry, I was referring to the Pens. I’m surprised anyone wears 52. The cut is so different from EDGE that a 52 would be closer to a 50. Gives me hope to find a 52 GI/TI Hawks some day

    54. Wanted something I could wear if I wanted to. Smallest pro stock size they make.

    Finally got around to taking photos of a GI MIC Aid-Zero jersey. I mentioned before that I'm surprised at the differences between it and the MIC WCOH jersey I have. Figured they would have been identical, but the NHL version feels much heavier and more robust. Isn't that the opposite of what Adidas said these jerseys were supposed to be? I am not looking forward to stripping this after my current two strip projects, but I plan on making this a Crosby and then selling it. No place in my collection for a Pens jersey, just wanted to check out a MIC NHL jersey I *might* keep this as I got it for only $75 and just add it to the rotation of practice jerseys at the rink. I will admit I like the fit over pads, but the quality is so f-in terrible. Got this off eBay for $40. Stripped the jock tag and the WCOH shoulder patch. Will be a practice jersey at the rink. Funny enough, with the exception of double shoulders and a fight strap, the 'Premier' WCOH jerseys feel pretty much identical to the 'authentic' practice jerseys.
  6. How To STRIP A JERSEY 101

    Should have taken a before picture, and I still have a ways to go, but here's where I'm at with a Panther's TI practice jersey in 54. The crest had to be pulled pretty hard to remove so I'm guessing the front will be pretty beat up when its all said and done, but this is meant simply to wear at the rink for practice/games so whatever. (actual color of the residue is blue, I just desaturated the image) Next is the Canes jersey I posted about earlier where the entire crest was glued down. After putting so much acetone on it I was finally able to get a corner up and remove the crest. I'm not looking forward to removing all this glue... The frustrating part is the last two jerseys I stripped came off almost perfectly! Why did these two have to be such a PITA?!
  7. The Want List

    Lower than what they normally sell them for off ebay? ie, under $300?
  8. It arrived today v. 8.0

    Totally agree with this. It almost seems unbelievable how often Adidas and 3rd parties are running sales on the Indo-zero jerseys. You can grab them for barely over $100 if you're patient. I know I grabbed a Hawks when they were first released for $115 shipped. Practice jerseys for $75 shipped. Of course, I returned them all because they're absolute garbage, but for a casual fan that is a helluva deal compared to Reebok EDGE pricing.
  9. Adidas NHL On Ice Jersey

    MIC Pens (ugh) jersey came in the other day. I gotta say, I'm surprised at how much I like it and how different the material feels compared to the MIC WCOH jersey I have. Why would Adidas change the design/material in such a short timeframe? I still dislike the curved striping on the rear and the collar on most teams. If Adidas were to tweak the Hawks collar and straighten the stripes, I'd be happy to pick a few up. In the meantime, this jersey is going to be stripped and turned into a Crosby. Then chances are sold. Don't have a need for a Pens jersey in my collection, really just wanted to see how the MIC NHL jerseys were in person.

    At least customizing the jersey should be easier... nameplate appears to be air knit rather than zero material http://news.sportslogos.net/2018/02/10/leafs-are-ready-aye-ready-for-stadium-series-unveil-uniform/
  11. How To STRIP A JERSEY 101

    My thoughts as well which is why I haven't tried it. Nope, can't get a single part of the crest removed from the jersey yet. I'm almost to the point where i'm thinking of just soaking overnight the crest in a bucket filled with acetone, but I'm concerned with what that might do to the jersey itself.
  12. It arrived today v. 8.0

    Hawks GW jersey FB page? Did you order the Penguins through JJ? I ordered one as well to check out how the MIC NHL compares to the MIC WCH jerseys. Figured I'd strip it, turn it into a Crosby, and try to flip it.
  13. How To STRIP A JERSEY 101

    Tried finding more info in the thread using the search tool regarding removing an entire crest and not just glue residue using acetone. Didn't find anything. Last night I was pretty much just pouring acetone directly onto the back of the jersey and allowing it to soak through the crest. Did this numerous times allowing the crest and jersey to soak up all the acetone. So far, nothing has budged. Should I be ironing the crest or doing something else to move along the process?

    Picked up some at Home Depot today. Thank you
  15. How To STRIP A JERSEY 101

    Acetone is basically nail polish remover, right? So I just dump it all over the back of the crest and let is soak in? How long should I let it soak?
