  1. That’s correct. The 1.0’s have skinnier sleeves and are smaller in the chest area than a 2.0 of the same numerical size.
  2. Classic Auctions Inc. Upcoming Auction...For Noobs.

    My payment status was still “pending” as of today, so I just e-mailed them and got back a very quick response. They did get the payment but they’re just behind on logging them in, so I guess I was just worried for nothing.
  3. How To STRIP A JERSEY 101

    One other thing to consider, that is, if you don’t do your own stitching, is that even if you successfully get the original kit off the jersey, you still have to pay someone to apply and stitch it on to the new jersey. This might take a big chunk out of whatever you save by not purchasing a new kit. Only once have I ever removed a kit from a jersey and reapplied it to another one. This is because the kit was originally applied to a replica, and later I found an authentic version of the same jersey. I had ordered the customization for the replica myself, so I knew who made the kit and stitched it on, so I had a good idea about how easy it would be to strip the kit. I recustomized the replica with another player, so that jersey was still of use to me. The jersey with the recycled kit turned out really nicely, but I don’t think I’d deliberately buy a replica with an unknown customization history, just to reuse the kit. It’s too risky. If just one of the letters got torn or damaged during the stripping process (and I’ve had this happen before) I’d have to reorder a whole new kit anyway, plus I’d be out for how much I paid for the replica.
  4. eBay version 4.0

    Aaaannnd the sniper beats them both!
  5. Classic Auctions Inc. Upcoming Auction...For Noobs.

    Thanks for the replies, guys. I guess I should stop worrying, but this is the longest they’ve ever taken to register a payment of mine. I sent it out on 12/4, but it’s still not listed as received.
  6. Classic Auctions Inc. Upcoming Auction...For Noobs.

    Perhaps not the best place for this (I didn’t want to create a new thread), but has anybody who won something from the latest Gameworn auction received a shipping notice or even a payment status update? They are usually fairly quick about this, but my payment should have been received a week ago, and there’s still not even a change in status from “Pending.” Just curious.
  7. The feedback thread

    It’s always a pleasure to be of service to great members of this forum like Hockey Bob. And I would also add that Bob helped me out here too, so we both got something out of this. A tip of the hat to you as well, sir!
  8. It is good or not?

    Wow, a counterfeit seller who truly cares about quality, lol. I like how he says “jersey fits bigger than size,” but he provides no measurements and states “no returns allowed for wrong size selection- please know which size fits you best.”
  9. Griswold CCM. Big block or Small block?

    I have a Leafs one like this. Double elbows, but no fight strap, with a thin, replica-like crest, and shoulder patches which were heat-pressed but not stitched down.
  10. Griswold CCM. Big block or Small block?

    Tbh, I’m really not sure on this at all. It seems unlikely they would use an authentic with a rarely seen crest in a movie, but then again I don’t know if I’ve ever seen a replica with that kind of crest either. I wish that picture of Chevy Chase on the stairs was clearer so we could see the details better.
  11. Griswold CCM. Big block or Small block?

    The movie jersey crest doesn’t look like a pinhead to me. It looks more like a rare variant crest only used on a couple of gameworns around 88/89 (when the movie was being filmed) which looks like this: The above crest looks more like the movie one than the pinhead does: http://siamtradingpost.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/Clark-Griswold-Vacation-Blackhawks-Jersey.jpg And I’d agree with HockeyBob; if you found one as rare as this, you wouldn’t want to commit a crime against the hobby and screw it up by making a Griswold jersey out of it.
  12. Griswold CCM. Big block or Small block?

    Just by looking at a few stills, it seems to me that the crest on the jersey is that weird all-twill one that doesn’t have any chain-stitching. If so, I would guess it would have to be a small-block jersey. And probably ultrafil. (But I still haven’t seen any pictures of the back to know for sure.)
  13. For the larger sizes, I’ll defer to the experience of you gentlemen, but for the smaller sizes like 44 and 48, in my experience the Nikes are definitely larger than their CCM counterparts by about one size. CCM 44 on top of Nike 44: Koho 46 on top of Nike 44- almost exact same dimensions:
  14. At least for me, you add 6 to the Nike size to get the equivalent Edge size. That seller is a member here (The Dude Abides).
  15. CCM 50’s do exist, but usually as gamers, not blanks. Hard to be sure of their origin because back in the early 90’s there generally weren’t any differences between TI and retail authentics.
