  1. 2000-2002 Mario?

    It’s only midnight here, haha. And you’re welcome.
  2. 2000-2002 Mario?

    That jersey style and brand was used by Lemieux from 2000-04, but if you want accuracy with respect to the use of the Captain's "C" then you throw out 2000/01 because Jagr was still captain then, so Lemieux didn't wear the C until 2001/02. The lettering looks practically spot-on for the 2003/04 season, except for a slight difference in the "M." If you think the lettering is pretty off, you must have been looking at gamers from previous seasons (2000-03), because there were more differences then. The holes in the sleeve numbers were a lot smaller, and the M was skinnier, among other things.
  3. It arrived today v. 8.0

    It’s the same jersey! 😂

  6. Adidas NHL On Ice Jersey

    LOL, that’s a good one!
  7. eBay version 4.0

    By coincidence, I just happen to be an optometrist!
  8. eBay version 4.0

    In the Hawks’ font, there’s probably only one letter that could be the one shown in the patch closeup picture- a D. I wouldn’t be surprised at all if this picture came from a Corey Crawford Indo jersey, since the D is at the end of the name, where it would have to be, in order to be in that position in the photo.
  9. eBay version 4.0

    In the picture with the patch closeup, I see airknit material, and it looks to be a lighter grade than what’s in the 2.0’s. If it’s the same jersey in all the pics, the shoulder should be x-trafil, and right below that the arms should be bubble mesh. Looks all airknit to me. Also in the closeup pic the right side of the nameplate shows a letter with a bar running straight up and down- it can’t be an S, or W, or any of the others in Toews’ name. It also looks like the name has got to be longer than Toews to even reach that far to the right. I’m sure this jersey has a different player name on it. The seller probably took pictures of another jersey for sale, and just threw that one in the listing either by accident, or he figured no one would notice.
  10. eBay version 4.0

    Actually, what I meant earlier is that the closeup pic of the shoulder patch is of a different jersey (I’m almost positive it’s an Indo-Edge) than the 1.0 jersey that appears in all the other pictures. If you look at the details in the patch (the way the red tomahawk handles cross each other, the size and shape of the 4 white holes in the center, etc.) you’ll see they are not the same patches as the ones in the 1.0 pics. So that one picture is not a 1.0 with Indo patches, it’s an Indo jersey period.
  11. eBay version 4.0

    The material under the patches is not x-trafil like in the other pictures of the 1.0. It’s airknit, but it appears to have a “snakeskin”-like texture that is typical of the Indos and not the 2.0’s. I could be wrong about the Indo thing because the pictures aren’t great, but for sure the shoulder material is not x-trafil.
  12. eBay version 4.0

    Those pictures are mostly of a 1.0. The picture of the shoulder patches is not of a 1.0; it’s possibly an Indo 7231. Something’s wrong here.
  13. Help on WHO TO PUT ON THIS!

    I think most of the purists here (including myself) would say it’s a foul. In addition to the back neck logo, you also have to lose the embroidered pre-lockout NHL shield on the hem in favor of the Reebok-era shield patch.
  14. Player Jersey Size

    You could just do a Google search, and many gamers come up. Every one I’ve seen so far is a size 56. MacKinnon started playing well after the 1.0’s were retired, so all his Reebok jerseys should be 2.0’s. The set of Adidas gamers that was just auctioned off last week featured a size 56 road MacKinnon: https://e.givesmart.com/events/7JD/i/_All/4ymU/?search=
  15. Starter Made In El Salvador Jerseys

    Whenever I see authentic white Starter Liberties, it seems to me that around half of them have the reversed color collars. Here’s one of them: https://ebay.com/itm/Authentic-New-York-Rangers-Wayne-Gretzky-NHL-Starter-Liberty-Jersey-sz-52/282992604262?hash=item41e3ac7466:g:VvEAAOSwMxdapvWu Also, I never paid attention to this before, but it seems like an awful lot of the replicas have the collar wrong too!
  16. Starter Made In El Salvador Jerseys

    Except for the neck tags and fight straps, the materials used were the same in both USA team-issued and El Salvador authentics. So excepting the occasional construction differences like the Phoenix example you mentioned, or the reversed collar color patterns on some of the NYR white Liberties, the quality is the same between the two. To me this is a different situation than the Reebok Indo vs. Canada 2.0’s or especially the Indo vs. Canada Adizeros.

  18. Meigray Expo 2018

    It might seem that way, but considering who the members in that conversation were, it’s really not that remarkable. Johnny and Jeremy were 2 of the best posters of all-time in this forum, IMO. It’s extremely unfortunate that neither of them is active here anymore, as I really miss reading their comments. I imagine they are both quite busy with their careers now.

    Years ago when you posted this, I had no idea you would really be going to law school. Congrats and good luck on your exam!
  20. Edge 2.0 Nhl Shield discrepancies?

    These shields have actually been used prior to 2013/14- I remember first seeing them on the 2011 All-Star jerseys, and then regularly on Nashville’s jerseys since the 2011/12 season.
  21. The Want List

    That answers some questions I had about the SC100 patches he was selling- he had way over 100 of them, and they looked really good to me, so I bought a few never knowing if they were originals or not. I wasn’t that worried about that because I couldn’t tell them apart from game worn patches, but this bit of info gives me more confidence that they are from the original time period at least.
  22. The Want List

    Let’s just say I think it looks exactly like an original. I would buy it myself if I were in need of one.
  23. The Want List

    I haven’t bought any from this listing, but from the pictures, the patches look authentic. https://www.ebay.com/itm/NHL-75TH-ANNIVERSARY-PATCH/152818825831?hash=item2394b63a67:g:5KMAAOSwa81aKGEW:sc:USPSFirstClass!91745!US!-1&redirect=mobile
  24. The Patch Thread 2.0

    I suppose if you’re good with a knife you could surgically alter the patch border. Even if not, I think I’d probably be OK with the patch as it is.
