  1. Adidas NHL On Ice Jersey

    Wonder if the dimpled material is partially an attempt to make them harder to knock off. Will be interesting to see how close the counterfeiters get.
  2. What year is this photo from?

    The final hockey game I saw at Maple Leaf Gardens was the Leafs against the Lightning in Tampa Bay's first season. Centre ice Reds, about 20 rows up from the ice, $50 face value. Those were the days!
  3. Collection Themes and Thoughts On Jersey Fouls

    Curious as to hearing some thoughts on these - not trying to be a smart a$$, but they actually wore these, probably for a cerimony. And what if they have no name on the back (I assume these ones do)? Greats

    Spudrock, that's where I will differ. I have no problem with it being made by a different company. As long as the the logo/striping/yokes layout and colours are correct, and I'm true to name/no name history for that team, I'll be happy. I recognize that is not the same for many others.

    That actually my thinking too OR68. Authentics like Montreal, Chicago, New York, Philly and a few others have the same style as they did decades ago, so to me those are fair game - but I would definitely go without a name when that matches the year I'm choosing a player from. For many teams I have been getting the CCM Vintage 550s.

    Thanks for the clarifications. I'll respect the culture of this forum, and post accordingly. 8^)
  7. Collection Themes and Thoughts On Jersey Fouls

    Hello all!! First post but I have been reading and learning from all your posts for the last three months or so - thanks for sharing all the knowledge! Thought I'd start a thread on collecting themes and styles, and generate some discussion on customization. I decided that I finally wanted to get the jerseys that I liked as a kid - the one's I saw in my ESSO Power Players (Canadian Gas Station chain put them out in 1971) and the Loblaws grocery chain's stamps to put in a book with all the players so from the 73-74 season, IIRC. I have been fortunate enough to pick up a mix of Premier/CCM 550s and 7287/2.0s - as many as I can find that match or closely match the jerseys from that Era, and now I'm thinking about customizing. I realize that absolute authenticity will be impossible and I'm fine with that. I've got many players in mind that I will use and want to customize to with the right number colours and even lack of names where that matches the general layout from that Era. The NHL Uniform database seems like a great resource for this. So I'm wondering if I'm the only one out there with this focus, or even if this approach is frowned upon. Ultimately I'm doing this to please my nostalgic impulse, so I know I'll be happy. I also really enjoy the idea of having people get the inside meaning of customizing a Habs 2.0 with a 29 on the back even though there is no name! Thoughts?
  8. The feedback thread

    Did my first deal on here with TheMadHat. Very easy and very happy with the jerseys! Thank you sir, and happy to be here as I recently started my jersey collection.
