2017-18 Jakub Voracek, home set 1.

If my calculations are correct, it was worn in 17 regular season and 3 preseason games. Jake scored 4 goals and 20!! assists in this jersey. It's got some nice marks and burns on it and the twill is pretty beat up. Super excited to get this one!

 

20 games of use and no repairs?

I know repairs aren't the be all end all of game use, but wow!

I’ve got it on good authority that Derek Settlemyre can’t stand to repair jerseys. I have a bunch of Flyers GW jerseys from his time as equipment manager and only one of them has a team repair. 

This one has a few holes in various places. I’m not surprised in the least that it has no repairs. 

Also, Jake is not a really rough player. He only has 13 hits credited to him all season. 13 hits in 38 games. Wayne Simmonds has 63. I know it’s not the only indication of playing style, but just to put it in perspective, ya know?

2012-13 Carter Hutton Chicago Blackhawks Practice Worn Jersey Goalie Size 58 - has tons of puck marks and some post marks on the back.  Much more detail to the AthetiCo patch.  I thought it was just a blue square of twill, but it's definitely not.

1991-92 Boston Bruins TBTC Jersey Size 52. The 75th anniversary patch needs to be added, but I have an authentic one already that I will add (not sure why it was missing, but not a big deal).

Very excited to have this one. 

Found on eBay as one of those pre-Customized NHL Player jerseys, with incredibly inaccurate customization including a twill nameplate and incorrect number font. It was more expensive than I wanted it to be, but these don't come up in size 56 often so I jumped on it. 

I stripped the kit and there was HEAVY glue residue from the numbers. About the worst I have ever seen (I wish I had taken pictures, but I didn't). So I sent it off to EPS to clean and recustomize. 

They did a great job of cleaning it and there are only a few slight signs of the original numbers on the sleeves. I went with the same player and number so I am sure that helped. The positioning of the glue marks showed me how inaccurate the font truly was. 

In any event, it came back today and its a welcome addition to my collection.

And when you’re sick of it in two weeks, you can send it to me.

Bad TBG. You didn't quote the photos.

Wouldn't count on it boys, a white ProPlayer has been on my list for a while now, its unlikely I will sellout in two weeks. Give me a month or two. 

Besides, Dr_Puck, you aren't allowed to have it because you already have the "one and only Devils jersey" you'll ever own!!

Good point, thanks for the reminder. It was remarkably difficult to find a River Rats goalie jersey. Lots of skaters jerseys but not many goalies out there. The good thing for me is that I can't stand the Binghamton Devils jerseys so that Sidorkiewicz shall remain it for me.

Why are you trolling me? Don't you have some LaBarbera stalking to do instead?

Where are you finding these?! Thanks for the close up of the Athletico patch. Gorgeous B's as well.

Don't care for the player (can understand why you chose it from a logistical POV) but love those PP authentics.  Would love to find a 52 (maybe 54) red blank to customize and even better a gamer from that year.  Used to have a size 54 white Mogilny that had the right patches and numbers, but so-so nameplate.  Sold it a couple years ago and wish I still had it:(

Looks like EPS did a good job on that too.  Can't really tell it was stripped from the pictures you posted.

I bet their "inspired" play lately hasn't made it easier either lol.

Lucky eBay find.  I think I did the buy-it-now less than 30 minutes after it posted.  It was more than a normal practice jersey would go for, but I never see one with the patch on it, it is was basically the same price as what JB was selling his for.

Kind of...it was on eBay, but the person that won didn't pay.  Seller is a member on here, so we worked out a deal.

There are definitely a few places where you can see it. But overall, considering how bad it looked, I am amazed.

Edited to add pics. First picture shows a small glue mark in the upper curve of the 3, second one shows one above the tip of the bottom arm. That’s really it, considering it looked like it still had black numbers on it after I stripped the originals it’s not so bad.

Additional update (as if anyone cares other than me), the mark in picture #2 came out completely in the wash.

Well, I've been SUPER slacking with the holidays to get this posted, but I'm insanely excited to actually have managed to snag a Flyers Adidas MIC.

Still can't believe what I got this for at the auction, but I'm so happy. It's likely eventually going to be stripped... but I kinda want someone else to go first so I know if it strips clean (although the #19 will cover the #15 almost perfectly). My biggest question is will the Carnival patch strip cleanly... perhaps to be covered by a Lindros patch?

Nice pickup, dsl. Some of those carnival jerseys went for super cheap! A Lindros retirement night jersey would be an awesome one to make it into.

Yea. I expected to pay way more. This was my Christmas present from my wife so I had a little leeway but was going nuts when I got it for so cheap. I kept checking thinking it was a mistake lol

I’m really digging MGG’s auctions. Small bid increments, no buyer’s premium, extended bidding on a per item basis, reasonable shipping charges. It’s awesome.
