    Just blanks, not team issued.

    It might have been that I used my PP balance for the first purchase and not the second. I tried a third time just to see if it would work again and it said the coupon had been used.

    I was surprised too but being ebay was paying the tab I didn't question it. JB gets his full price and I get a deal. Win Win.

    I used the 20% off with JB and got a home and away 'Hawks and an '09 'Hawks WC. Best part is you could use the coupon more than once so I did two orders and saved $165 total. Hopefully they do this again soon, it got me three jerseys I really wanted.

    I don't know if it will work but years ago a collector online had a similar situation with an air-knit jersey. He claimed he got a paint tray like you use for painting a house and filled it with acetone or some other remover and laid just the back part in the chemical and let it soak, checking it regularly. He claimed it did remove quite a bit of the color stain but did take quite a bit of time. Then he took a 50/50 mix of bleach and water, did the same and said he got pretty good results with no damage to the fabric. Unfortunately he didn't post pics. If you're a gambler it might be worth a try.

    Thanks, Blurry. Yeah, post some of your stuff. It's always nice to see some cool old CCM jerseys and learn a thing or two. Coffey was popular enough to have plenty of pics and footage to look at so that helped out a lot. I wanted to be as accurate as possible with that '87-'88 because stripping it wouldn't be an option. One day I hope to find a Sandow or NIke Coffey that isn't a small fortune to buy.

    Thanks for the feedback. I checked out lots of game used sites, game pics and even cards to get it done correctly....or as close to correct as possible. Even did the separate air-knit swatch for the A. You're right about it being for the '87-'88 season, I wanted his first year Pens from the low budget vinyl days.

    How many remember the Vandevelde jerseys on ebay from years ago? This was one I picked up with 44's in twill on the shoulders and back. Years later I decided to strip it and have EPS send me a vinyl Coffey kit for it. Gotta love those vintage CCM's.

    Wouldn't be right to have my 'Hawks collection minus the '16 ASG MVP. To watch Bettman have to hand him that million dollar check and the chants of "MVP!" was the highlight of the weekend. Best ASG in years. I'm not the same person on the 'Hawks board but as an Oilers fan too there's no closet big enough to hide the disappointment in the franchise since '92-'93. Well, except for '05-'06 and last year.

    Finally made use of these blanks.
  11. It is good or not?

    It's fake. I bought one years ago off ebay for roller hockey or rink use for $19.99 figuring it had to be and it'd be no big loss if it got scuffed up. They first showed up on there for $49.99. Not the worst fake for the money spent.
  12. The Want List

    I'm looking for a blank home Edge 2.0 (non-Indo) Blackhawks from the 2011-12 season on up in a 52. The away version is fine too, just prefer the home as first choice. Thanks.
  13. Hi, I'm new to the IJ forum. I usually collect the old 80's-90's CCM's but now I'm moving into the Edge 2.0's. I was wondering on sizing how the 2.0's measure in difference in length of the sleeves between a 52 and a 54? The old CCM 52 sleeve length fits perfect. Any info is appreciated. Thanks!
