I promised this last week and finally got around to it. Marek Zidlicky 2011-12 Set 2 game worn jersey that I got at the Meigray $99 sale. There are actually 2 of the Zidlicky red Set 2's from this year. One was for the first game he played with the Devils either the same day or day after he got traded from Minnesota in late February where he wore a jersey that didn't have the usual EPS customization due to the time crunch. I believe it was the Devils Den that did that one. After that he wore this jersey for about a dozen home games before switching to the set 3. Surprisingly little wear on it but still a good deal IMO.

That would be mine, never posted here as a) against "New Arrival" rules and B) I haven't photographed the entire haul yet to post!

Photomatch time!

Nice pickup, a friend was eyeing the black one himself, but when he went to the team's office, they doubled the price on him. Typical minor league move from a minor league team.

Thanks for the photomatch! It bothered me at first that is wasn't the nice layered style, but it is growing on me and it certainly is unique. They just re-launched the store last week and I think their prices were a little screwed up at first. I was able to get mine for $350, but there was a tag on it for $700.

The twins!

Usually when someone gets excited about a picture of "the twins" it's something else entirely.

Usually you expect that when someone is excited about Swedish twins....

But I'm also happy with my Sedin jerseys for the moment... ;)

Had this youth size jersey done up for my daughter by EPS. Looks exactly like a shrunken version of the authentic lettering, great job by them.

A pair of jerseys arrived today via trade with another Federal Hockey League collector. No, I'm not the only one who collects FHL gear. The first is a Danville Dashers jersey worn by Justin Barr, likely in 2011-12. It shows good game wear. Not the most audacious design by any means, especially compared to prior jerseys the Dashers have worn. Still, this is a cool get.

This second is a New York Bluefins jersey. They began the 2012-13 season originally as the Cape Cod Bluefins. By December of 2012, the Bluefins were taken over by the league, moved to the Syracuse area and turned into a road-only team whose main function was apparently to balance out the rest of the league's teams' schedules that season.

I've been searching hard for a Cape Cod Bluefins jersey but haven't turned up anything yet. This New York Bluefins shirt, even if it's just a glorified practice jersey, is a consolation prize. Seriously ... if anyone has access to a Cape Cod jersey, please let me know. I've been successful at finding some elusive FHL jerseys this year but a Cape Cod Bluefins jersey remains hard to reel in.

Here is the picture with Ranger wearing this exact jersey. Matched to the marks by the shoulder patches and the repairs as well as the blue marks on the shoulder patch.

Funny story on this one. Jersey had been for sale for over a year. I finally got around to justifying the purchase so I email the guy about a week ago, and he tells me it just sold within the past few days. That was a bad luck week for me jersey wise so I was pretty pissed.

Come home today and my sister brings me over a box and she tells me happy birthday, a week late but whatever. She managed to figure out the one I was talking about and bought it before I could, but it got held up in customs for some reason so I got it late. Really happy to have finally gotten my hands on a Pro Player devils.

Oh and yeah, in case anyone still didn't know, a 54 Pro Player is like a 56 in a CCM or Koho.

Awesome story, Joel. That your sister bought you a jersey in the first place is neat. Bonus points for tracking down a jersey that you really wanted.

Regretfully my family members lack that same searching ability.

What's more awesome than getting the exact jersey you want? Someone else paying for it! You have a good sibling there, Joe.

And, a very nice jersey. Told you they run big. What's the verdict on the nameplate, does the material match?

Haven't had much in the way of pickups lately although I should have a shipment coming in shortly. In the meantime...

2010 Sharp Cup jersey size 54 EDGE 1.0. Haven't had a 1.0 in a while so I forgot just how long the sleeves were. Might try to get rid of this and find a smaller size seeing as I normally wear a 50

Never actually handled a Premier jersey before, but I got this for a stupid price and have a 2015 Cup patch on order to go with it. Going to be a birthday present for one of my good friends. Also an excuse for him to stop asking me to borrow a jersey every time we go to a game. LOL!

While not a hockey jersey I absolutely love the design of the Chicago Red Flags (women's soccer) which mirrors the Chicago flag and had to pick one up. Super lightweight Nike dri-fit and everything is sublimated. Clearly it was good luck as I wore it during the only World Cup game I've ever watched

Also not a hockey jersey, but a new addition that I told myself I was going to do last year and just never got around to it. Got it done a week before the Cup and am more than happy with it!

Material appears very similar, but I'm not certain it is the same. But being that it's close enough that I can't even be sure whether or not it is exactly the right stuff means it's good enough for me. I love the Jersey, it pretty much instantly became one of my favorites.

56 is about my top end I can make work size wise for most brands, but it this was a 56 there would be no way. It's probably my biggest one as it is despite it being a 54.

And yeah, I'll have to be really nice to her for a few days, she really made my week with this thing.

I have a ProPlayer 56 and it's definitely bigger than a regular 56. It's a good one for lounging about the house.

Ben Carpentier 05-06 river rats. Jersey is clean, only mark on it is a small one on the right elbow. Its not meigray, and it doesnt have the tagging/serial # from the river rats locker room like every other one ive seen.

And I'm happy about that, because the thing is getting stripped. Sorry gamer collectors, but this guy was the only way I was getting a 6100. If it was marked up i wouldnt touch it, but that combined with no tagging/LOA is enough for me.

The River Rats only wore that exact style for that one year before becoming affiliated with the Canes and not all of their gamers were Meigray tagged. From what I have heard, they also sold a bunch of gamers that were untagged at their equipment sale so this could very well be a gamer.

If it is a gamer, sucks that it is getting stripped. I just don't believe in the practice.

Also I recently got a supposed game worn 05-06 white River Rats Stephen Gionta jersey a couple weeks back off of eBay. Turns out it looks to be either a gamer that was either stripped and turned into a Gionta or it was an authentic made up into a Gionta and the owner decided to add game use to it on his own as it has a few marks on it. Regardless I am pretty much 100% sure it was never worn by Gionta as the customization was kiss-cut and the name-plate material is off. Nevertheless it is a 6100 in size 58 and willing to part with it.

Nice pickup. I had similar ideas when I saw that on eBay, but a shift in my collection left it on the outside looking in.

Who's it gonna be?

The fact that its a 6100, size 58 is pretty good evidence that a Gionta never wore it.
