    How To STRIP A JERSEY 101

    Finally got around to trying to clean up the mess I posted earlier on this page. First pass cleaned up a LOT! Still got quite a ways to go including the sleeve numbers, but it's getting there. Not going to deal with the previous name as a nameplate will cover that up. Hands down the biggest strip project I've tackled.

    How could they use the design for the heritage classic if they don’t own the rights?
  3. I mean, technically I have a few Caps practice jerseys that I could destroy, but I’d rather sell them. Of course, if I cut it up and could sell nameplates for $20 each I’d be way ahead of the game!
  4. Reached out to JB, waiting to hear back. Also reached out to EPS who said it would cost $30!!! That’s practically half of what an entire jersey customization costs!
  5. My brain was clearly off. Completely forgot about a number of online retailers
  6. 2.0 were sold at retail? Huh, didn't know that. Never once saw a 2.0 at a stadium or their respective team store (Hawks, Kings, Ducks, Caps)
  7. I sent a handful of Blackhawks jerseys into CSL to be customized, however they just called and let me know that they do not have anymore red edge nameplate material. They suggested air knit, but I was wondering if anyone here had some spare edge material lying around? Need kind of a long nameplate since this jersey was being done up as a Hjalmarsson. Cheers, Matt

    Another black jersey.... I was focused on the pattern on the sleeves.

    The Patch Thread 2.0

    Saw that. Guess I'm going to need to find a few patches and break down and buy an Adidas jersey...

    Very true. I will admit I wanted one, but couldn't get myself to actually buy a jersey. All of my blanks are customized. Believe EPS and Brilliant did them all

    The Official IceJerseys MLB thread

    I've always bought blanks, but all my MLB jerseys are from the early 90's. Can't stand the cheap material they're made out of now. Old Rawlings and Russel stuff was basically like ultrafil

    Adidas NHL On Ice Jersey

    I may have misread one of your replies as I was referring to the 'jersey material route' as getting away from chain stitching

    If you get a lead on an authentic all-star patch, lemme know! If you go with a SCF patch, you should also get a 75th ann patch to put underneath. Since it'll be covered, doesn't matter if it's authentic or not. FWIW, I actually find the quality of the repro 75th ann patches better than the original. I bought a handful when they were available a few years ago.

    There have been a handful of chain stitched outdoor jerseys over the years with zero consistency. By that logic, every Heritage classic jersey should also be chain stitched because the Jets did it once. For the Rangers last year, wasn't it just the 'NY' or 'C/A' that was chain stitched? What was chain stitched for the Sabres? What does the time period have to do with chain stitching? I don't believe the Blackhawks used chain stitching until they switched to the current version of the crest in the mid-50's. Prior to that, the majority of the crest was felt with the smallest of details chain stitched ] Now don't get me wrong, I'm hoping they do use chain stitching because it's a staple of the Blackhawks. I'm just wondering how they'll do it with this version of the crest. Black felt circle, white felt letters, white chain stitched outline of the head? Just pure speculation on my part.
  15. Fair enough. Valid point
