  1. 2018 NHL All-Star Game Jersey Watch

    Well yes and no- I own a Gameworn from last years ASG, and the numbers are much higher quality than the cheap ones you see on the repros- it's a whole other level of detail and quality, the real ones look fantastic These repros look they were printed on a much cheaper quality machine (for mass production) while the NHL on-ice are top-notch as you would expect. On top of that, the Dye-sub patches on the shoulders are horrendous. I can honestly say that unless I can get a canadian authentic, I'm out this year.
  2. 2018 NHL All-Star Game Jersey Watch

    Attended the Tampa Bay Lightning game last night and they had the ASG jerseys in stock (well, at least the Stammer). They are absolutely crap! With the "authentics" you get dye-sub shoulder patches, numbers, and letters. I asked if they are doing a nicer level of jersey, and they are not. Ugh. With the lightning jerseys they make up at the arena, they take the "authentic" jerseys and press layered numbers and letters onto the jerseys, and you get the real ASG patch or "25th anniv" patch on the front if you opt for it.. which makes them much nicer then the dye-sub crap you get from NHL.com or other retailers. It's really tough to put one of these on and feel good about it when all you wear is authentics. I'm still going to buy a Vasy, with my STM discount it comes to $162.50 and I gotta have at least one. I'd love to have an authentic, but I would anticipate some pretty high bidding on the GW ones that will most likely be put up for auction.

    The sad thing is they really have an oppurtunity to do something cool with these, and instead they just seem to want them to be ugly for some reason. If you poll 1000 NHL fans, 999 would say they don't like them. So who the hell do they have making these and who the hell is reviewing the designs? I think my favorite comment I've seen so far is that you could use these to direct traffic or as an Air Traffic assistant.

  5. 2018 NHL All-Star Game Jersey Watch

    Worse than I ever expected. Ugh. And the ASG is in my hometown and I have tickets and will be around all of these. I'm not saying I'm going to buy one, but I'll probably cave this year being that it's at home.

    Wow, not impressed with the leaked version. Let's hope the other 3 have more appeal! Of course, if they don't, it will just save me money.

    We should be getting close, VERY close to seeing the 2018 All-Star Jersey's released! Hopefully they will be creative but not ridiculous. Post any new info here!

    I saw this ROY go through GWJA.org, and I thought it was kind of cheap for what it is. Am I missing something here? 97-98 Patrick Roy Gamer, $1,461 plus 19% buyers fee.

    That appears to be it for home jersey's. Good catch. Dissapointed that the lightning did away with the tie strings.
  10. 2017-2018 Jersey Watch

    Talked to a very reliable source today about the Tampa Bay Lightning Jerseys- here's what I found out- They are doing away with the lace tie at the top. They are eliminating the "Tampa Bay" on the away/White jerseys. The shoulder patch will be slightly different. The premier jerseys will no longer be a big iron on patch for the front logo, but will be a embroidered logo or "look like an embroidered" logo on it. Lightning Jerseys in 2017-2018 will have the 25th Anniversary patch, All-Star Game patch, and the 100th NHL Anniv. patch (until December).
  11. Replica or IndoEdge... would you?

    Not all Indio-edges are created equal. Some are pretty bad with being inaccurate. That being said, the Tampa Bay ones are pretty decent for the most part (they are ALMOST spot on), and up until about a year or so ago it was absolutely impossible to find a white away Canadian made Jersey (current style) anywhere, and I searched high and low for years. So yeah, I do have some white indios and they represent the Canadian ones well. But if they didn't, it would bother me too much to own one. I don't own any indio blues, however, as I've always been able to obtain the authentic ones. I do have a few premiere jerseys as I was given a few of them for being a season ticket holder.. but I really hate wearing them since the shoulder patches are so cheap looking and the front Lightning on the jersey is one huge patch, which drives me nuts. Once I went authentic, I became a jersey snob I suppose. But hey, I've put the effort and money forward to obtain as close to on-ice jerseys as I could, so why wouldn't I be? I wear the premiere jersey on a day I know I'm going to be putting the jersey at risk for stains or damage, such as a huge outdoor party or wings and beer at hooters.

    Thanks guys. I'm sending 5 Jerseys out tomorrow, so we'll see how it goes. Hoping for a decent turn around time, but it's all good either way. Love Bobcat's work.

    Anyone sent anything to Bobcat lately? Just wondering how the wait is. It's been a while for me but I'm getting ready to send off a bunch.
  14. The prices I quoted are from the Lightning Foundation auctions that they have at the actual game, and the Jersey's there were regular season. The SC playoff and SCF jerseys were all sold on the NHL Auctions website. But these Jerseys were from the year the Lightning made the Stanley Cup run, so there was a lot of excitement from that still being felt. For a while it was tough finding any TBL GW Jerseys from the last 4-5 years, so once they were released, the prices they sold for at the game were absolutely insane. I picked up a SC Playoffs Cally off of the NHL Auctions website for like $650, and photo-matched it to game 7 of the Conference finals vs New York. I did an amazing job of controlling myself from buying any of them at a ridiculous price. Even the people that work at the tables admitted that the Jersey auction prices were fetching way above market and what the expected.. and this went on for a good season and a half. This year the Jerseys are selling for a more realistic price.. I think it's a combination of the years of putting the GW jerseys on sale plus the fact they are having a relatively bad season... Hard to want to drop big $ when they are not playing well I suppose. That being said, someone did just pay $1350 for an issued ASG Heddy:
