    third jerseys are back

    I agree; I also like the Chevy logo jerseys a lot. My comment was not intended to imply that I think all black jerseys are boring. But I do appreciate some color mixed in with the black- Chicago’s black/red alternates, or the 90’s Senators are great examples. I was referring to the current Kings design, which is now over 10 years old. I’ve never thought this design was all that great, and both our Stadium Series and official alternate jerseys have been basically gray and black as well. The new third is going to be yet another gray jersey- sigh... Even being a devout Kings fan, I have no problem admitting that our black/white/gray palette is the most uninteresting in the league, and I would very much look forward to a change, but I also know that’s not going to happen for a while.

    I rather like it. Of course, I’m used to boring black jerseys. 🙂

    It arrived today v. 8.0

    Really? I didn’t know they actually mentioned people’s names. By coincidence I was actually going to try to watch that live show this morning, because in their e-mail it says you can follow the show on Facebook, Instagram or YouTube. I don’t do the first 2, but I couldn’t figure out how to watch it on YouTube. Maybe I’m just an idiot, but how do you access the show via YouTube?

    Gee, how did you guess it’s mine? Haha.

    This is turning into a History lesson. 😀

    It is good or not?

    It’s almost certainly a team-issued blank that was later lettered with Iginla, or perhaps a game-issued that was stripped and relettered. Iginla wore 58’s, so like you said, it’s too small to be a game worn for him. Interesting that it’s a repatched vector- you’d figure most of those would have been cleared out by 2013.

    Yes they did, on 2 retro nights in 2016/17.
  8. Wow, that is news to me. This must have been quite a while ago, no? Before 2016?
  9. Well, they did have 2011 ASG 2.0’s made for retail, and those had the vector. The retail vector 2.0’s that JB has, like both Chicago 3rds, the Boston 2010 WC, etc., were made well after the switch to the wordmark, but he was able to have them made with the vector after the fact.
  10. Are you sure about this? I don’t recall them ever having team 2.0’s.

    Did I do it again? 😀
  12. I don’t believe team 2.0’s were ever officially sold at retail. They have never, at least to my knowledge, appeared in Reebok retail product catalogs. You just saw more of them available after 2014 or so because more and more dealers started to do what JerseyBaron did by special ordering them in batches. Btw the Kings Team Store definitely had 2.0’s available (a lot of them, actually) for quite a while.

    It’s a Fanatics replica, so you could expect that the on-ice one will look a lot better than that one.

    Help a newbie with a Sandow SK Oilers jersey

    I wouldn’t necessarily consider that price to be typical for all jerseys of that type. Larger size jerseys tend to sell for more, and of course the price is going to vary depending on jersey condition, and whether it’s blank or customized- if the latter, the accuracy of the customization could significantly affect the price as well. You are quite welcome for the assistance!

    Help a newbie with a Sandow SK Oilers jersey

    Oh, btw, Gerry Cosby didn’t make the jerseys, they just sold a lot of them at retail, and so they stitched their tag in the neck area. The jerseys were actually manufactured by Sandow.

    Help a newbie with a Sandow SK Oilers jersey

    In the early 80’s, Sandow made some authentics for retail sale, and some of them were different from the on-ice authentics in some respects, like the crests, fight straps, double elbows, etc. I have no idea why Sandow would go to the trouble of making the retails differently from the on-ice ones (kind of an 80’s version of the Indos?), but they did. One of our members here has a couple of them for sale in the Trading Post- do they look the same as yours?

    Help a newbie with a Sandow SK Oilers jersey

    Now you’ve got me really curious about this, as you haven’t replied here or in the PM you sent me. Don’t be shy, we’re all here to help! 🙂 I’m gonna take a wild guess here. You have a white Oilers Sandow jersey with a Gerry Cosby tag stitched in the collar along with the Sandow SK tag, and it has a front crest with fuzzy-looking chain-stitched letters. Is that what you have?

    All of the pictures I posted were of game worn originals, not replicas. The white one you asked about is a 1981/82 Sandow mesh. The front of it is posted below. What are the questions you have about it or the jersey you own?

    Rock Stars in Durene...

    So, was the 25th patch an original? Not a jersey I’d expect people to have (well, except for me), considering it was only used for a few games.

    Dealing with Jersey Baron

    That makes perfect sense. I would think most of the TI’s were obtained at a pretty big clearance discount, whereas the retail 2.0’s have to actually be made-to-order in minimum quantities, at dealer cost.

    It arrived today v. 8.0

    I think I can barely see it (it doesn’t show up well in the photo), but it does say DALLAS in green letters right above the Stars hem logo, right?

    It is good or not?

    As long as the picture is of the actual jersey being sold, then it looks like a legit 1.0.

    third jerseys are back

    I’m pretty sure all proceeds for the auctions went to the Kings’ charity foundation, so at least it all went to a good cause, but man, there are apparently a lot of people in LA with money to burn for souvenirs...

    third jerseys are back

    Reading over what I wrote about the replicas being sold in the TeamLA store, I realized I was being ambiguous. It wasn’t the jerseys worn by the players in the warmups that were sold in the team store, but rather blank replicas. The player-worn replicas were auctioned off, and some sold for really high prices. Kopitar’s Burger King fetched $4111 (for a warmup-worn replica!), and Jonathan Quick’s (which was not even worn due his being injured) sold for $1275.
