I saw this when it was first listed and researched it bit.  Maybe someone can confirm, but the Bruins never wore this style, correct?  When they had the numbers on the front, they had 'B's' on the arm and a different style of shoulder stripes.  I'm sure if it was an actual Eddie Shore jersey it would go for tens of thousands of dollars.  No question it is a vintage jersey, but I am not sure it's a Bruins jersey.

interested on what others think.

I agree. The colors were brown and yellow during that period too. This looks black with brown numbers to me...though, I don't always trust my effed up eyes in color situations. It's strange. Here's my theory: Perhaps Eddie did actually wear it but it was altered in some way after that point. Look at how the front number is a lot clearer and a different font than the back one. Was the B removed at some point and then another, newer #2 added after the fact for collecting or display purposes? It's possible I guess. For a piece like this, I would insist on having it authenticated first. Someone's down for it though because it's up to four grand already.

I finally entered the new century and purchased a home printer. I know eBay knocks off USPS shipping fees if you go through them and print a label via their site. Does the USPS reduce prices if you ship from home via a printed label from your computer? 

Along these same lines, does anyone use poly bags to cut down on weight?  Up until now I've just been reusing boxes to ship my stuff in, but a large 13" USPS Priority box weighs a good 9-10 ounces.  Stick a jersey in there and you're way over the 1 lb threshold and possibly over 2 lbs, where the shipping prices jump considerably. 

I thought about ordering a bunch of free Regional Rate A2 boxes from usps.com, since they are lower-cost for the same Priority speed.  But, got to thinking about the poly bags.  EPS uses them, and I haven't heard people complaining about their jerseys.  And, it would eliminate the need for an inner ziplock bag, since the poly is waterproof.

Thoughts?

Do you have any bags picked out?  I've also been thinking about this, after learning in detail about the huge cost increases at the pound increments with USPS to Canada.

I have the poly bags for certain things, but generally speaking, I just use the A2 Priority Mail box (or a Medium flat rate box depending on where its going, sometimes its cheaper) for jerseys. Jersey people are picky (like we don't know) and they like things coming in boxes. I don't feel a box adds significantly to the price of shipping a single jersey, it might, but I never double checked it. 

When I do ship in a poly bag, I still ziplock the jersey as an added layer of protection, and sometimes a second poly bag, in case the outer poly bag gets ripped.  USPS can't be trusted.

I did some searching on Amazon and saw a few, but I'm not sure which are the best to use.  There's different thicknesses, sizes, ones with gussets, etc. It's confusing :/

I just got 2 from EPS yesterday - I can check if there's a brand/SKU on the bag.  They seem to do a fine job, even if they seem cheesier (to me) than a box.  I would probably experiment with inner ziplocs, maybe taping those together, etc.

I use plain, 14X19 poly bags like these.

Not where I bought them, haven't checked if these are the best price.

They fit a single jersey easily. They would not fit two without significant manipulation and squishing. 

I use them more for shipping other items, and they are especially useful for retail returns when you have mauled the poly bag the items came in and don't want to try to re-tape it. 

A gusseted bad of 2-3 inches would probably handle two. But, at that point, you're probably into Flat Rate Box price anyway, so you'd be better off that way.

The ones EPS are a bit thicker than the ones I posted, I believed. But I have never had anyone report back to me that anything happened to them, so they must be working out ok. When I use them, anyway.

Just go to a fedex / ups location and open an account. It's free to do. You can get all the poly bags you want from them for free and just ship with Canada Post / USPS. They don't care if it's UPS or FedEx packaging.

I actually had one hag at the post office give me crap for using a fed ex box to ship with Canada post.  She said I had to cover all the fed ex logos or she wouldn't accept it.  Told her to p iss off and just took it to another location that didn't give a crap about the box.

That's actually not a bad idea. Hmm...

Here's the bag that I just got from EPS. 14x19, 3 mil, same specs as the one mfitz posted.

How were the contents on arrival?

Do you think it would stand up to international shipping? I've had three recent shipments in USPS priority medium boxes and they're pretty banged up by the time I get them. Contents have been OK. Shippers have had jerseys in zip-lock bag inside (reputable sellers). I'll let you know about the Buffalo when it gets here.

Moooo!

I've never had an EPS shipment damaged in transit, so if those are the bags they use, they are fine. 

I've shipped internationally in those bags with no reported problems.

I would add, I do find them useful for when someone is in a hurry or if I am especially busy and dropping the prepaid jersey into a mailbox is easier for me. If you print postage online, your are permitted to do this; using stamps you can't. 

This has allowed me to ship stuff at midnight (or later) when my schedule is such that I will not be able to ship in the daytime for an extended period.

Is anyone getting the "you forgot to do this" reminder at the main page of your selling dashboard? Why fix the seller's dashboard if it's not broken?

This is an odd one.  Meigray has 4 brand new white Devils christmas tree jerseys... uncrested, size 44.

Wouldn't those Devils jersey be 1989-90 jerseys?  No NHL shield or maybe it didn't get that far in production since the crest wasn't even added yet.  It is interesting why Meigray would have those in their inventory.  I wonder if someone in the Devils organization found those in storage and just gave them to Meigray to sell.  It's pretty cool, but I don't think it would be very easy to find an authentic crest for that time period to complete a devils jersey - and it sucks they are a size 44.

100% this. 

44 (nope), no NHL shield makes it unlikely they are from the year specified. Also weren't Devils into Red n Black by then? There are enough Devils experts here who could confirm I'm sure  

The one positive is they are Ultrafil. Mmmmmm sweet, sweet Ultrafil. Perhaps I could get 2 and somehow frankenjersey them into something my size. Or, maybe I should move this to the Jersey collecting is an illness thread.

Those jerseys have the post-1991 size tag and fight strap with the flat buttons, which you don't usually see on any jersey from 1990/91 or earlier.  I think they were made for 1991/92, despite the lack of NHL shield.  Like spudrock said, maybe they never got around to adding them.
