What do we got here?  Best picks I got. 

 

Assuming it's the one on eBay, the seller is showing pics of Byron's and J&J Distributing LOAs.  Those are legit companies, but I'd still be careful as that's a lot of money!

Especially if the Lemieux is a game issue. Probably sell the Steve Y.

I can tell the jersey isn't fake, but wtf is with the buckle instead of the fight strap? The seller hasn't answered my question. Is this something the Latvian team did on their own or is this something completely f***ed up and the seller is trying to get a sale by saying the jersey was "made for game usage"?

It's good. That's a first generation Swift jersey. They had those goofy buckles in lieu of the fight strap.

There are two downsides to this one though. First, it's a size 56...which in Swift is like a 44. Second, you will NEVER EVER EVER EVER EVER find the correct plate material to match that. Unless you can find another pro jersey and cut it up for material.

Not sure if I'm even considering a purchase.. not sure if the seller ships to Canada as it is (info says he does, description says no international) and as mentioned, no answer to messages. 

I do have a Denmark 56 from the same era (with a normal fight strap) and I'm shocked but I can pull it off lol

Then you're a better (and smaller) man than I. That thing would be a bologna skin on me.

Now if you'll excuse me, it's back to my beer.

I cheated with some pizza tonight. Hardest habit to break when trying to get back into shape is food lol

Turns out buddy with the Latvia jersey won't ship to Canada anyway... even though his item is listed with international shipping prices. Can't fix stupid.

Legit 1.0? 

I find it strange that it's customized with a player who had 1 GP for them, the year AFTER the Atlanta all star game

If that's the case about the player, it appears to be a team-issued jersey with either the player customized or the All Star patch incorrectly applied by the owner.

It’s not likely someone would customize the jersey with a player who only played one game in the NHL, and that doesn’t appear to be the number he used anyway in 2008/09.  More likely it’s a game-issued jersey for the 2007/08 preseason or even the regular 07/08 season, and it just never got used.  The player was drafted by Atlanta back in 2004, so he was in the Atlanta organization in 2007/08.

Hmm, I got conflicting info on his number.

But i hadnt considered that he could've played in the preseason, that would make sense though.

Looks like he wore #52 in the 2008/09 preseason:

And #38 in his only NHL game in 2009:

I would still think he wore #52 as a prospect sometime during the 2007/08 season, and that’s where the jersey came from.

Well I got the seller to ship to me in Canada after some haggling... Two points that may be better suited for another thread...

1. Duly noted on the nameplate. I'll ask the usual places, but I could settle for the more recent Swift material if there is just no other option in the end.

2. Looking at photos of Latvia's 2006 Olympics, their names and numbers were clearly screened/heat pressed on and not sewn twill. Any idea how long this lasted and if anyone can customize this way?

The USA and Russia jerseys were the same way. In fact, everyone but Sweden and Canada may have been heat-pressed. I've never really figured out why that was. I'd put money on the fact that Nike thought it would be 'lighter' that way. Turds.

I guarantee you the lighter material was the main reason for it. Probably cheaper too, but I'm not aware of how it works with teams and paying for uniforms at that level.

That stuff works for soccer jerseys, of which I have many, but hockey jerseys not so much. Would still be something unique in the collection.
