Whew, I was starting to think I had gone dyslexic.  I even googled it just to make sure.  Odds are good you have another box going out to Keener momentarily, so just throw it in.  Regardless, that's a fantastic haul.

Thanks man. Yep, I already sent him a message...just hope he can salvage that PP name plate.

So cool to see my last name on a jersey! 

Probably related to him somehow...we Greniers have a big clan.

Nice - he was a huge guy that was a hell of a fighter -

Nice pickups boys! Dude throwing down the All Star gauntlet! Looks like he enjoys the way the Andreychuks really tie the room together.

Got this fresh from the Baron.  I'll send it off to PX once I see the gamers. It'll most likely be a Simmonds w/ "A".

I've always bought the odd jersey, but it's only recently it's become a sort of hobby. I figured it was time to get involved and post some recent acquisitions here...

Ryan Strome authentic from his conditioning stint with the Sound Tigers last season, purchased from a member on here (who told me about this forum).

Sebastien Meijer WC U18 jersey (I think from 2004)

Maxime Sauve Providence Bruins jersey. Listed by the Bruins as game issued, but shows signs of game use. It's a size 52 (seems odd to me as Eliteprospects has him at 6'0"). Also, the nameplate seems to have been made out of a scrap of pillowcase with rubberized heat-transfer letters. However, it's not as much of a mongrel as this...

No neck tag, but has a well-worn Maska tag inside that suggests it's legit. No nameplate. Stacked twill rear numbers but kiss-cut sleeve numbers. Evidence of a larger crest having been removed and replaced. It was suggested that it came from the Islanders organization (pre-season? promo jersey?), whether it's this or an authentic from the time, I'm not too fussed - I'm pretty confident it's not fake and I kinda like its oddness. Not too sure whether to put a nameplate on (I don't think any players of this era wore 51, but I'd appreciate any more info or suggestions if anyone's got any).

And finally, as I'm new to all this, I'm in that phase of indiscriminately buying anything that seems to appeal at the time (I think I need to sort this out pretty soon). This Scott Mifsud preseason jersey has been on eBay for a good year and a half. I just figured it was time to put it out of its misery. It doesn't look like it was recycled from another player and shows decent wear for something that must have only been used a few times.

Welcome to the forum Ash. I really dig that Tigers jersey. He looks ferocious!  

I've seen that Leafs jersey many times as well. Keep an eye on that guys page. He lists new jerseys pretty frequently and at real good prices. I picked up both home and away Marlies gamers for just over $100. Can't beat that.

Evgeny Korolev wore 51 during the fisherman era -- I own his GI.

That Calgary St. Louis jersey is awesome. That's one you don't see everyday (I've never seen one)

That Leafs jersey is from the rookie tournament the Leafs participate in every september I believe.  I know Realsports was cleaning them out along with a crap ton of marlies jerseys for $50-$100 during the equipment sale last summer.  

There was a Tukka Rask Leafs jersey floating around a few years back from one of the tournaments.  You know, before that bone head Ferguson Jr. traded him to Boston.

Thanks. I also bought a Marlies away jersey from the same seller. No real affection for the team, I just think they look great...

Thanks for the info. I've just done an image search for him and see that another jersey on gamewornauctions has 'ghosting' of a possibly reapplied crest similar to the one I've acquired, which at least helps with the provenance of my jersey.

Did Korolev ever actually play for the Islanders in the 'fisherman' era? Even just pre-season? He was drafted twice and didn't play an NHL game until the 2000 season. I'm just curious as to why the half-finished fisherman 51 jersey I bought would be kicking around in the first place...

Maybe it's because the picture is somewhat blurred, but it almost looks like the Islanders' 25th patch says "1995-97."  Could that be correct, or am I just seeing things?

Welcome, Ash! According to the history I've heard, the smaller crest on the Fisherman is a clue it may have come from team stock originally. Hopefully you can figure out who wore it.

No. Just my poor photography skills on a phone. If it was 95-97, then I'm pretty sure I'd have been ripped off...

Thanks man. I had never seen a PP in that style before either. Couldn't pass it up.

Sorry man, and thanks for the clarification.  (It really did look like a 5 to me though, lol.)   Everything that you said about the jersey points to it being a game-issued jersey made for a player who didn't make the team, probably Korolev, as NYIJM29 said earlier.  Kiss-cut and layered characters were sometimes mixed on the same jersey, and the larger crests were removed by the team and replaced by smaller ones.  Just out of curiosity, how wide is the crest on your jersey, is it much less than 16"?
