  1. It actually wasn't that bad. Plus I was able to sell the other jersey with the 15 crest and 17 arms for almost what I paid. So I guess it may not be my most expensive jersey. In all honesty, I want to make another one!! Funny. Like 6-7 years ago I was on the hunt for a size 52 white Hawks ultrafil. At the time, they seem to be impossible to find. Ended up trading my Hawks TBTC jersey for it. Was very happy with the trade at first, but obviously ended up regretting it. Thankfully I was able to find another TBTC for dirt cheap as well as a few more ultrafils as time went on. ha! If I do decide to make another one I'll let you know.
  2. I'm going to say this one....
  3. It arrived today v. 8.0

    Been pretty quiet on my front lately. Moved from Los Angeles to DC this summer for a new job and trimmed down quite a bit of my collection. Since I'll be going to a bunch of Caps games I figured I'd pick up one of their jerseys. Always liked the design of the 2015 WC when they played the Hawks. Felt details on the letters/numbers is cool and the fact that the stars are completely sewn is a nice detail. The front crest seems to sit a bit low and is less on the chest and more on the stomach and the shoulders/sleeves are constructed differently than any other EDGE jersey I've owned. Either way, happy to add this to the collection. Last week I posted about a 20% off code from Adidas.com which worked on jerseys. Gave it a try knowing I don't like the Hawks' new collar and was not impressed the the Adidas WCOH jerseys. I am blown away by how crappy the material is. No double elbows, flimsy fight strap, and paper thin material much like that of the Reebok premiers. It's horrible. Needless to say, it's being returned.
  4. World Cup Of Hockey Jerseys

    Same
  5. 2017-2018 Jersey Watch

    Updated the post with the code. Still hope someon can get me some info on ordering preseason GW jerseys...
  6. 2017-2018 Jersey Watch

    How are people contacting teams to get preseason jerseys? I'd like to try and get a Hawks jersey. Adidas is selling the indo-zero with a 20% off code already (USR2017). Ordered one to see how it compares to the Canada made WCOH jersey. Still can't stand the new collars and really don't like the overall style of adizero compared to edge
  7. eBay new seller, 1 feedback?

    Took the suggestion of others and simply added signature confirmation. The package was signed and delivered and haven't heard anything from the seller so I guess I'll take that as a good sign. transferred the funds out of PP and into my bank.
  8. A bunch of jerseys for sale

    Sold two Kings jerseys. Next up, Nike USA jersey.
  9. Quick question I'm hoping to get some answers on before I ship out a jersey today. Got a person on eBay who purchased one of my jerseys and at the time had zero feedback. Later that day they got their first positive feedback so now they have 1. Signed up in July so they're new, but not brand new. PayPal says the seller (me) is protection eligible. I emailed the buyer to confirm his address and he responded. Should I go forward with shipping or is there something else I should do to confirm and/or protect myself? I always ship with tracking and delivery confirmation, but was going to add signature. I've never been screwed over on eBay, but I'd also rather not start.
  10. EPS the best/only place for WCOH customization?

    Good to know, thanks for the clarification. I must have been mistaken on the 'A'.
  11. EPS the best/only place for WCOH customization?

    Was getting ready to send my WCOH jersey in to EPS for customization. Man, they want $85 plus sewing on the shoulder patch, assistant captain letter, and shipping!? That seems awfully high. Is that due to the perforated numbers or what? I thought they used to be $60-65 for customization.
  12. The Patch Thread 2.0

    Can someone please refresh my memory... who on here was selling SAP patches for the WCOH jerseys? I know they're also on ebay for $25, but if they're the same (and cheaper), I'd rather support a member.
  13. Purchasing insurance for your jerseys

    I just moved and got a new home owners policy. Added my jerseys to it and they are separate from the rest of the coverage. Cost me $110 for the year. I simply gave them a list of jerseys along with perceived value/what I paid. I have photos of all of them in case the insurance company wanted proof, but they didn't ask for it.
  14. Adidas NHL On Ice Jersey

    Who has enough photoshop skills to swap the center part of the collars? I wasn't a fan of the WCOH jerseys which were built exactly the same as the new NHL jerseys. The collars on most teams are horrible; even worse than the FlyKnit collars on Nike's NFL jerseys. If Canada made authentics are only $200 I'm sure I'll pick one up if nothing more than to put a 100th anniversary patch on it. Still can't believe I prefer the EDGE style to this...
  15. 2017-2018 Jersey Watch

    To me all the previews look like they're exactly the same as the WCOH jerseys. The material reminded me of a slightly thicker EDGE 1.0 material. Definitely going to snag, but not as easily as 1.0. I was not a fan of the WCOH jerseys and sold mine right after I got it. Much prefer the air knit in 2.0 jerseys. I'm most curious to see the Hawks sweater as I can't imagine they'll omit the chain stitching which is what makes the crest/shoulder patches so unique. I would hope they wouldn't use the jersey material for the tan face part of the crest, but I guess we'll see in a few days.
