  1. It arrived today v. 8.0

    How did you get them done through a website in one day?
  2. It arrived today v. 8.0

    Where did you get them done? Do the Horvat and Boeser have Adidas material nameplates? Can't quite tell from the pics.
  3. Belarus Cyrillic - No IIHF Patch?

    Yeah it's proven difficult at best to find. Not even any reproductions on eBay. Oh well.
  4. Where to buy WHL jersey in USA

    Yeah those pricks run the Oilers team store, thus the Oil Kings as well.
  5. Belarus Cyrillic - No IIHF Patch?

    There were no patches at Nagano 1998, but the team wore the English "BELARUS" logo then. As far as anything I can find tells me, the Cyrillic logo came out in 2002. I'm guessing at this point that perhaps the 2005 Olympic qualifier had no patches because Belarus didn't even have sponsor patches at that event while other teams did. Maybe the 2004 World Championship in Division 1A Salei played in too. I'm also being nit-picky at this point lol. Regardless of whether I can get the old patch or not, this jersey will be 24 SALEI.
  6. Found the Belarus cyrillic red jersey I've always wanted on eBay recently. It's an authentic, size 52 so I jumped at it knowing that it lacks any IIHF tagging and patch. I don't care about an IIHF tag inside the neck like a lot of jerseys from this era have, but I'm curious about the lack of a patch on the bottom right hem. Does anyone know of any tournaments this jersey was worn without an IIHF tag? It's appearing to me that the older IIHF patch (globe with italicized letters) is impossible to find. The newer IIHF patch (thick, bold letters) was on this jersey in 2005, so that's an option... but I want to turn this into a Ruslan Salei jersey, and he did not play at the 2005 IIHF World Championships. He did however, play in 2006 Olympic qualifying that took place in February 2005, when Belarus was obviously still using these jerseys... but I have been unable to find a photo showing the back of a Belarus player at this event. I don't know if they had an IIHF patch at that event, or if they did, which patch it was. Any help with pics or information is appreciated. Pics of the jersey currently en-route to me...
  7. It is good or not?

    I guarantee you the lighter material was the main reason for it. Probably cheaper too, but I'm not aware of how it works with teams and paying for uniforms at that level. That stuff works for soccer jerseys, of which I have many, but hockey jerseys not so much. Would still be something unique in the collection.
  8. It is good or not?

    Well I got the seller to ship to me in Canada after some haggling... Two points that may be better suited for another thread... 1. Duly noted on the nameplate. I'll ask the usual places, but I could settle for the more recent Swift material if there is just no other option in the end. 2. Looking at photos of Latvia's 2006 Olympics, their names and numbers were clearly screened/heat pressed on and not sewn twill. Any idea how long this lasted and if anyone can customize this way?
  9. Where to buy WHL jersey in USA

    I used to work for that s***bag company described in the opening post, and they have .ca for product they ship to Canada and .com for product they keep in the US. If you're in the US, you have to buy from their .com side. You can put items from both the Canada and US sites in your shopping cart, but once you go to pay, the product from the side you're not on will be removed. Just one of the many reasons I can never spend money with those clowns again. (If you can't tell, just seeing that L word drives me into a rage lol)
  10. It is good or not?

    If that's the case about the player, it appears to be a team-issued jersey with either the player customized or the All Star patch incorrectly applied by the owner.
  11. It is good or not?

    I cheated with some pizza tonight. Hardest habit to break when trying to get back into shape is food lol Turns out buddy with the Latvia jersey won't ship to Canada anyway... even though his item is listed with international shipping prices. Can't fix stupid.
  12. The Patch Thread 2.0

    Another patch hunt... looking for the IIHF patch at the bottom right of this jersey...
  13. It is good or not?

    Not sure if I'm even considering a purchase.. not sure if the seller ships to Canada as it is (info says he does, description says no international) and as mentioned, no answer to messages. I do have a Denmark 56 from the same era (with a normal fight strap) and I'm shocked but I can pull it off lol

The seller hasn't answered my question. Is this something the Latvian team did on their own or is this something completely f***ed up and the seller is trying to get a sale by saying the jersey was "made for game usage"?
  15. Edge Jersey Timeline

    With Edge 2.0 jerseys, there really isn't a difference in the fit between retail and team-issued. The only difference is the reinforced fight strap that team-issued Edge 2.0 jerseys have, and as stated in this thread, the lack of a Reebok tag inside the neck. I have retail and team-issued Size 56 and they fit the same.
