1997-98 Washington Capitals Customizing Help

8 posts in this topic

I have Keener working on a kit for a blue Capitals jersey I have, and we are both having trouble figuring out the proper customization - stacked, or kiss cut. Here is a link to at 1997-98 Bill Ranford White jersey from that year that appears to be stacked numbers: http://www.gamewornauctions.net/products/1997_98_Bill_Ranford_Washington_Capitals_Game_Worn_Jersey_Team_Letter-4591-120.html

Does anyone know if they used stacked for both the white and the blue through the whole season?  I am making mine a Stanley Cup finals jersey, so I want to make sure it is accurate to what they used during the finals. And, if they were stacked, does anyone know when they went to kiss cut?

Thanks for any help as we want to make sure before Keener starts cutting the kit.

I'm going to throw this out there too.  The link I added above, shows a Bill Ranford jersey and it is listed at 1997-98, however, it has the Capitals across the front.  Didn't they remove that for the 1997-98 season?  I think the game worn jersey that was sold may have been the wrong year - I think that is would have been from the 1996-97 season, but than it should of had the JB Patch.

I'm so confused...(it doesn't take much)

I just found that too - looks like kiss cut correct?

Better off just buying a Detroit jersey from a real team in '98

Make sure Keener doesn't bind the edges of the nameplate.  Cutting Edge Sports made sloppy kits and didn't bind the nameplates.  If you ever have a white jersey done up, always remember to pee on the nameplates to simulate the yellowing from the cheap Arse glue they used.

From capsjerseys.com:

Numbers - The numbers are layered so that there is only one full layer. The home jerseys have the black layer on the bottom, then a thin bronze outline sewn on top of the black and then a very thin white outline layer on top. Likewise, the road jerseys have the white layer on the bottom, then bronze, then black.

Namebar - The letters are three-color tackle-twill letters in the same color scheme as the numbers attached to a namebar made of Airknit material. The letters are layered exactly like the numbers. The letters of the third jersey are arched along the bottom with the beginning and end of the name being taller than the middle.
