Got this in today: Reid Boucher Albany Devils Ugly Christmas Sweater game worn jersey.  Reid wore this in the game against the Marlies on 12/6/15 and scored the first goal of the game which became the GWG as the Devils shut out the Marlies.  Pretty neat since the Albany Devils, as like their parent club, do not really do specialty night jerseys.  In their 6 year history they have had 3 with 2 last year (Christmas and Camo) and 1 this year (River Rats throwbacks).  Nice heavy jersey that is probably the nicest "ugly" Christmas sweater jerseys I have seen.

Yeah, they did a nice job on those. Nice pickup!

I'm curious to know how that feels when it's worn...like sitting down in a car with it on. 

It looks like it would feel like wearing two pizza boxes on your back. 

How is it?

Be our guinea pig!

It's definitely noticeable but not terrible. 

On a side note this medium is smaller than others or I'm getting bigger

One can only imagine the epic story that must go along with why you know what that feels like.

Just unsure why it needs the cross through the numbers.

I can see a reason for that if the cross is stitched to the jersey itself to give it more stability if the glue behind it doesn't hold. If it's just holding the number to the plate, it's pointless.

As I look inside the jersey thing is heat pressed. I sent an email to real sports.

Remember, back when felt was used on the old sweaters, there was no adhesive to iron the numbers on. The only way to keep the numbers on for a while and probably to endure the washings that they would suffer from, was to stitch throughout the body of the fabric as well as the edge. That's why you see those wacky patterns on old wool pieces AND the replications of that in the blue Sabres alternate, Habs, Leafs and B's Winter Classics and now this.

Now you mention it I now remember old repro rugby jerseys with the same sort of stitching through the numbers.

What part is heat pressed? Everything looks stitched.

Yeah RS heat press in store. That's why I've never had a jersey from them.

Yeah I could tell from the stitching on the outside that it was all just heat pressed.  The zig zag stitch doesn't go all the way to the edge.  I noticed some differences between this and the authenticsports customization.  Mainly the realsports version does not have the decorative straight stitch outline on the letters and nameplate.  Since SLC will be doing the gamers it will be interesting to see their interpretation of the customization.

Got this in from EPS today. Looks pretty darn good.

The first retail WCOH jersey I've seen with perforated numbers- looks great, and gives me a lot of confidence in regards to the 2 of mine that they're doing for me.  The back numbers (at least the parts I can see) even have the correct number of rows of perforations, both vertically and horizontally!

It did look like the gamers had three rows of holes on the sleeves, and mine have two. I don't know how the A was done on the gamers (looked like a special patch maybe) but this overlay patch they did looks great to me. I'll get full pics taken tomorrow.

Bummer, the gamer sleeve numbers did have 3 rows of holes.  The sublimated colors look really good though- they have sharp borders, more precise than on the All-Star Game numbers.

Just in time for hockey night. Matt Read GW 2017 Stadium Series, 2nd period. Has a couple burns on it and custom tightened sleeves. Matty didn't do much in this jersey, but I don't care. It's the only one out there :)
