  1. The Patch Thread 2.0

    NE patches are officially licensed, but for older patches they are certainly not originals, and some of them are quite different-looking than the originals. This 1998 patch is a repro, and has a different letter font, thinner orange spikes, among other differenes.

    Well I guess you're just lucky then, because almost all of us Photobucket users, it seems, no longer have such privileges...

    This one looks like a 52 to me! And Matt, how are you getting your Photobucket to post pics? Surely you're not paying their fees?
  4. OK, well being in France does complicate things a bit, unfortunately. That will add a considerable amount to your cost for the jersey. So far the best price I've seen for the Indo jersey is the one in that link I posted. Too bad the seller "ships worldwide" but excludes Europe, Asia, Africa, Central and South America, Southeast Asia and the Middle East. Where does that actually leave? Lol. One thing people here do sometimes is have the seller ship to a local forum member, who can then ship the item to Europe for you. Of course, with you being new here, you don't know anyone, so it's understandable how difficult it would be for you to trust someone you don't know with your item and the shipping cost. But people (including myself) have done that successfully, so it's at least a possibility. Or, you could contact the seller and ask if he/she can make an exception for you and send the package directly to France.
  5. You are quite welcome. If you like, feel free to share more information on what jersey models you're looking for, your level of particularness about quality and authenticity, desired price range, etc., and perhaps we might be able to help you find more options.
  6. Hi, and welcome to the forums! Most of us here strongly dislike the Premiers, as the quality is indeed quite deplorable, as mfitz so eloquently stated. However, since Reebok jerseys are generally on clearance now you might be able to grab one for next to nothing, so perhaps it still may be worth your while if you just want something to wear and aren't that picky about jersey details. The youth L/XL sleeves are indeed pretty short, around 28" from the tip of the sleeve to the center of the jersey: They are also quite narrow, around 21" across. If you're looking for a Montreal jersey, if you don't mind the style from a few years ago (without the tie-down collar), what would probably be the best fit is the older (discontinued) authentic Edge 1.0 model, if you could find one, in a size 46. It's form-fitting, with slender arms, and the sleeves would definitely not be short; in fact, they might be a bit on the long side. Here's one, but the price is rather high: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Reebok-1-0-EDGE-7187-Montreal-Canadiens-HOME-Red-Jersey-46-/330604750912?hash=item4cf9942840:g:XUkAAMXQuTNTNHy2 Another option would be the Indonesian-made Edge 7231 authentic model, also in size 46- you can get these real cheap now, here is one: http://www.ebay.com/itm/CENTER-ICE-AUTHENTIC-MENS-REEBOK-MONTREAL-CANADIENS-HOCKEY-JERSEY-MULTIPLE-SIZES-/142386359233?var=&epid=1802516574&hash=item2126e36bc1:m:mny3uA7ZcSOtLpa2lIFJHcA The quality is not as good as the on-ice player jerseys, but it's way better than a Premier, and at that price can't be much more than what you'd pay for a Premier. This model is not as fitted as the Edge 1.0, but I wouldn't think it would fit any worse than a small Premier. The best quality you can get is the on-ice Edge 2.0 (7287), but these will be the most expensive option, and the arms are pretty baggy, even in the size 46, which is the smallest they come in. Anyway, hope all this helps a little.

    I've seen a few videos of the 1990 and 1991 Rangers' preseasons, and it looks like their jerseys had vinyl lettering. Yours seems to have twill lettering, so the preseason seems doubtful. Would training camp jerseys be any different? Or perhaps he was called up during the regular season as a backup, but never played? Running out of possibilities here.

    If it were Binghamton, I wouldn't think the jersey would have an NHL shield, right? That particular combination of fight strap style, neck tag, CCM logo and NHL shield, plus the arched name would be unique to the 1990-91 season, I would think. I'd agree with your first thought, that it's a camp jersey for the NYR. If that's Mark LaForest, he did play for Binghamton that season, so it's consistent with the jersey details.
  9. EPS the best/only place for WCOH customization?

    I think they have to laser-cut the holes on all of the numbers. But that IS the price we had to pay for those jobs. However, I've never been charged additional for a stitching a captain's letter.
  10. It arrived today v. 8.0

    Only the Kings, which I do on an ongoing basis. I didn't know about the Devils; I just checked on that this morning because I was curious about something- (took less than 5 minutes). So no, I don't have this information on every team!
  11. It arrived today v. 8.0

    Haha. Then I won't mention anything unless someone asks.
  12. It arrived today v. 8.0

    For the 2015 game at least, there were a few players (Gionta, Tootoo & Zubrus) who used patched over jerseys with the old shield and black stripe (no green).
  13. It arrived today v. 8.0

    No, the retro night jerseys in recent seasons (that are not patched-over wordmarks) also have the green stripe.
  14. EPS Spring Sale 2017

    If you ordered perforated holes, then that's what you should get, as they have both options. Only problem I can think of is that on the sleeve numbers you might get 2 rows of holes instead of 3. Also, nameplate material might not be a perfect match but it should be close.
  15. It is good or not?

    I can't answer about the crest variations, but the throwback jersey is an early 2000's vintage reissue by CCM. It's made of airknit instead of ultrafil, and is shaped like the 2000's CCM/Kohos with the bigger arms. Many other teams had similar reissued throwbacks as part of that Vintage Hockey series.
  16. It arrived today v. 8.0

    Even on this board, it seems most people couldn't care less. But to me, there's just about as much difference between the hard and Lextra shields as there is between the CCM/Koho embroidered and Reebok 6100 patch shields, and just about everyone here cares about that.
  17. It arrived today v. 8.0

    You are very welcome, of course. My anal retentiveness regarding shield accuracy caused a lot of issues customizing 3 of my Kings jerseys as 2016/17's, due to various patches (2017 ASG and NHL 100) being used only during certain times of the season. I could not use certain combinations of patches because they didn't match with the shield type the player was wearing at the time. It's a disease...
  18. It arrived today v. 8.0

    I actually keep track of that stuff, and have lists for who wore what shield and when. Back in 2013/14, only 3 players (Richards, Brown and Doughty, plus Carcillo for a very short time) regularly wore jerseys with Lextra shields, and they didn't have them for every set. So for Carter, he'd have had the old shield for the regular season and playoffs, so you're good. Just FYI, it wasn't until the next season, 2014/15, when more players started to have jerseys with the Lextra shield. However, every season since then there is still a small handful of players who have had jerseys with the old shield (just for the home and roads), including 2016/17.
  19. The Patch Thread 2.0

    I don't know if the same pertains to the Flyers, but last season the Kings wore a multitude of CCM Vintage replicas during various warmups, including the Burger King and the purple alternate with lace collar. The team store ordered some of these to be sold in the arena but not on their website, and I still haven't noticed any of these widely available elsewhere. Perhaps the Flyers' team store might have had some?
  20. 2017-2018 Jersey Watch

    Doubtful. Like HockeyMusic said, they're probably just using stock photos. I don't think the Montreal store really knows what they're getting. I'm sure they will have Indos just like any other retail store.

    It's Canada.

    It's not the space this time, you just have to enter the item number and then search completed listings.

    Thanks, that looks really nice. Reminds me of the 80's Oilers jerseys, but a much neater job.
