  1. A "jersey collecting is an illness" thread.

    I concur (I am bitten). I had a real issue a few years back when everything went black on the "colour" jerseys. Thought it looked rubbish and everyone looked the same. Some teams should have black colour jerseys but not many. My two most recent Ultrafil purchases are both white and am trying to sort another white GW Reebok. When they're well looked after, they really pop.

    Awesome. I wish this sort of service was more accessible to me.

    Excellent, thank you.
  4. A "jersey collecting is an illness" thread.

    Ahhh, I don't see any Edge 2.0 left on IJ so was wondering. I haven't checked all teams. Have my eye on something at MeiGray but not sure if it will still be there when I get to it. That's life though.

    Where did you buy? #enabler (pretty sure this could become a thing, though probably already appropriated by others).

    Jeez. I don't even use fb and I've already had it with this guy.
  7. It is good or not?

    True dat. Wait...ermagerrrdh. What have I doooone!
  8. It is good or not?

    Well, not following football in Chester is quite understandable. Not much to cheer about there.

    Should we point out why it's a fake? I'll post the things that raise flags for me, feel free to join in. Apologies in advance if this is some sort of foul and mods should please delete this post if I've committed a faux pas. Thought this might be helpful to people looking to learn more. Also please correct me if I've posted anything incorrect here. -First give away is that the NHL shield is covered by the laces. That's enough to rule it out right there. -The word mark on the back is wrong. Apart from the font looking way off, it appears to be embroidered directly into the jersey. It should be embroidered onto a separate fabric plate/patch which is then stitched/ironed onto the jersey. Beware of examples where they use a whole embroidered panel to look like a plate/patch but the whole thing is just embroidered into the jersey back. -It is much more common for a jersey with the Rbk vector logo on the inside tag, and collar piping to have the vector logo on the back. There are occasional exceptions to this around the time the vector swapped to word mark but it should be a red flag and an excuse to ask the question somewhere like this. -The attachment of the "fight strap" (should these be more correctly called tie downs? and don't get me started on the term "fighting strap") is laughably poor. Look for some examples of authentics online. The strap should be sandwiched between a rectangular piece of twill and the jersey. Both strap and twill should be stitched through to the jersey. Anything with a single square "X" stitched attachment should always ring alarm bells. -Stripes across the shoulder yoke look extremely wrong. Too wide for the red and white. I might be wrong but not seen an example like this. If there should be a word mark I believe it should be on a blue backing plate. -The appearance of the print Rbk on the collar piping also looks wrong to me. I could be mistaken and this is a relatively minor thing as there are loads of other errors that identify this example as a fake. -The size tag embroidery looks wrong to me when compared to authentic. The flag looks off, and I think the CCM is too. Not exactly a cheap price on this example either. Wonder if the owner is aware or ignorant that what they are selling is clearly a fake.

    obviously not a smoke free household. lulz.
  11. DEALS AND STEALS

    Pickings are pretty slim on IJ too though if looking for Edge authentic. Still some premiers on there. How accurate are IJ customisations? Not that this really matters as I've looked for things that might work for me and found nothing.

    Whereabouts @DJ Rhea? Oop North? Wondering if we could chat football nonsense as well as hockey nonsense.

    Lovely. Good job.

    What he said.
  15. A "jersey collecting is an illness" thread.

    My focus is 1990-93 ultrafil authentics/GW/GI/TI (which is not likely to come through JB I know). In addition I'd like a 90/91 North Stars GI/GW (if only they were ultrafil those jerseys would be perfect) if possible, no particular player. I believe I'm not alone there. Am thinking I should get a McDavid (blue). It just seems the right thing to do but, not a high priority. Having said that, I'm still thinking about Pens GI/TIs from last season. I have one (home cup final GI), and am thinking I should get a matching away from the playoffs (since Cup finals were given to the players) which is going to hammer me funds wise if I even manage it.
