  1. eBay version 4.0

    Just throwing it out there. AVOID buying anything from eBay seller fasinfrankvintage Bought a jersey that was listed as dirty but NO holes, snags, rips ect. He didn't ship it until I contacted him 14 days after payment, (21 total days for delivery) it arrived with a hole in it so I reached out to resolve, he didn't respond to any messages until I filed a claim - THEN he sent me a message asking me to cancel my claim before he would try to resolve. I called eBay and they said once you cancel a claim they won't pursue any further. I sent him a message that'd I'd be happy to cancel after he tried to resolve, I wasn't asking for much, just to repair the hole. ($20) No response, eBay closed the claim and refunded the full amount and told me to keep the jersey. Kinda cool on them but the seller was a huge pain in the AZZ from the git'. To save yourself time just kick yourself in the nuts and pass on his stuff.
  2. What jersey did you wear today?

    Please tell me you didn't put Griswold on a jersey with a 2013 SCF patch
  3. The feedback thread

    Huge shout out to LAK74! Totally helped me out with my request on The Want List - I believe this is my 1st request on that thread that produced what I needed. I can't thank you enough, What an asset to this community! Cheers buddy
  4. Griswold CCM. Big block or Small block?

    Hey, You don't know Maybe he likes testing used matresses to see how many different DNA's can be found. Everybody has their thing
  5. It arrived today v. 8.0

    If they made a Blackhawks one big enough for me I'd grab one but i'm a fatty I did grab this one for one of my salesmen along with one of Slims books. They seem to run a little large so I may be tempted if an XL comes along. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Boston-Bruins-CCM-Heritage-sweater-jersey-NHL-throwback-vintage-replica-XL-/152804216452?_trksid=p2047675.l2557&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&nma=true&si=mDAr3bb1Vme7EPTOSwAzxiX8OgI%3D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc
  6. Griswold CCM. Big block or Small block?

    I picked up a red one back in August that has the same crest, shoulder patches and double elbows and the fight strap. Mine has a Crosby stamp on the left hem and small block CCM on the right. The movie was on last night and I think the best shot of the jersey details were the images that LAK74 and Brilliant posted. I didn't see anything showing the hem or if there was a fight strap. My best guess is it was a retail jersey from the mid 80's

    Man that's cool! How did you get the Custom Crafted added to the hem? I'd like to do that with mine, Wondering if the old Gunzo's stamp could be recreated for some of my oler stuff
  8. I have a white Hawks jersey that I stripped and it came totally clean with the exception of where the numbers crossed over the fight strap. It left yellowing that I have hit with about everything I got and it still shows. you may be stuck As Mfitz804 mentioned, my bet for the easiest solution would be replacing it.
  9. Griswold CCM. Big block or Small block?

    Not by me, Sorry if I came off that way. Just trying to chime in. I can see why you think that though There is a lot of sarcasm on the board, I wouldn't take offense.
  10. Griswold CCM. Big block or Small block?

    I saw a clip of this last week and was trying to make out the specifics of the jersey. I'd say a movie accurate would need to be white, Ultrafil, pin head with double elbows. I don't recall seeing anything to suggest a fight strap or what the CCM on the hem looked like. (heat pressed, patch, small block embroidery) All said, to make an accurate one you'd spend a lot - and instead of potentially having a high dollar player jersey coveted by fellow collectors - you'd have a boner jersey that wouldn't hold any value among collectors. I can't imagine there are a lot of Christmas vacation collectors that would be so concerned with that level of detail and be willing to pay up for it. There were a rash of big block CCM's done in the early 90's when retail authentics boomed I have 2 in size 48 Ultrafil that I haven't gotten around to stripping as I have other projects, if that is close enough for you shoot me a PM.
  11. Comprehensive jersey history

    Early 80's It's a great reference and looks really cool on your coffee table I highly recommend - you will not be disappointed You have inspired me to order 3 to give out as gifts to good friends this Holiday season - if you think you may know someone who would appreciate the book I would suggest buying multiple as shipping for one is a little pricey - but worth every penny

    My response was to DR-PUCK's question of where was he. I asked him that and he said he was just taking a break. But if he is writing a book about gay vampires / making it into a movie, I think I'll pass I'm more of a comedy moviegoer
  13. Comprehensive jersey history

    I've talked with Chris a few times via email - just when I had jersey related questions and when I needed the link to order another book. He's taking a break because he has a lot on his plate, I think that's code for his book is getting made into a movie
