    1992-93 NJ Devils Pre-Season Christmas Jersey Info

    Hey guys. Yup that’s the one. I know Pat Conacher and Brian Sullivan are the 2 guys who wore it. I went for it because my good old Canuck Faithful wore 32 with the Devils before he left in 1987. Kirk McLean. Im guessing odds are he didn’t use it, but figured it was worth the shot.
  4. So I’d like to make a deal with a Devil... 😈 See what I did there! Okay, back on track. Does anyone have any solid info on the 92-93 pre season devils roster and which years the Xmas tree style jerseys used for that pre-season came from? Reason being most have decent wear and nameplate changes. I’d like to try and see if anyone traced back the first use since they are mid 80s stock jerseys. Anyone with photos or video link would be awesome. Thanks all! The reason, I picked up a heavy repaired (16 team repairs) with fully intact numbering and crest home white with a nameplate change and while I know the 2 players on the roster there is a slim possibility it was also worn by a goalie which was my reason for taking a shot on it. Thx all!

    eBay version 4.0

    Gilmour is the sound of Pink Floyd (Vocal and Guitar) but Waters is the essence (Lyrics, theatrics, stage show). One of my all time favourite bands. Too bad Richard Wright died before they could pull a Rolling Stones and do a world tour in their 70s...

    It arrived today v. 8.0

    That Richer with the “C” is cool. Never knew he wore it! Whoever did the customization put it a little too close to the crest tho. Should be by the far Grey “Rain” line.

    Might have to do with Lou being gone? Any credence to this? I remember someone saying he didn’t want the gamers being sold for some reason. (Referring to Lamiorello and the Leafs)

    Probably someone in the Peg who will make it a Laine

    Possible Mario Lemieux team issued?

    Here is my 2 cents. 1) Don’t get caught up in customization details regarding location and gaps. Things like spacing and gaps are great for photo matches but when you compare 1 gamer to another it doesn’t mean too much. My example is based on the same era Canucks. Back number height and width and placement was all over the map. Same with Nameplates. 2) that said it could be a blank team issued size 54 and the details in pencil can indicate the pit to put width (27.25 x 2 = 54.5) size 54 and length from top of collar to bottom hem. Some customizers use this info to determine number placement and size. The “66” in pencil likely was to indicate who to customize the jersey for. Based on the front “C” and some name details it’s probably a blank customized by a third party after the fact.

    Here’s something for everyone who experiences the craziness of shipped items going all over. I live in the same city as a main Canada Post sorting facility which has no advantages despite what you might think. However I DID discover the answer to why some items go across the country “in error” only to come back to the place it left. So here is the example. Item was sent to me from Los Angeles up to Vancouver. The item got from LA to Van in 2 days. Then the tracking showed Van to Edmonton... HUH? Why the F would it go there. Then sat for 3 days and came BACK to Vancouver. Next day it was delivered. So I asked a friend who works for Canada Post and it all made sense. Items shipped from other countries using cheap option tracking (non priority or express) enter the country and go through initial customs. When Canada Post showed the item in Vancouver the first time it was actually in the possession of Canadian Customs despite not showing it. Customs then decides WHERE to send the item to put it into the possession of Canada Post. It just so happened the processing queue in Edmonton was shorter than the local queue and it went there. Canada Post then is officially handling the item for the first time and sent it to Vancouver for delivery. So chain of ownership is Sender to USPS to Canada Customs to Canada Post to Receiver. But tracking showed as Sender to USPS to Canada Post to Receiver. This is my guess for all the situations described above where it goes to random cities within the country and perhaps in Europe other parts of the EU.

    Anyone ever seen a TI 2.0 with single reinforced fight strap?

    Yes I have seen the Canucks have some like that. Usually smaller sized TI which was basically identical to a retail authentic without neck tag. (54 and under)
