    The Patch Thread 2.0

    Anyone heading to any of the final few Blackhawks games at the UC? If so, would you be willing to pick me a up a Mikita patch? Please.

    Appreciating the Reebok Edge 1.0

    I also have one 1.0 in my collection. It was my first edge jersey; an original black alternate Blackhawks customized with Toews. It is comfortable and I actually love the xtrafil material (shoulders/elbows) although I dislike how long the sleeves are and how much more prone the front is to snags. I've considered getting rid of it on multiple occasions, but being my only 1.0, a player other than Kane, and the rarity of 1.0 blacks on the market, I keep it in the collection. Couldn't tell you the last time I wore it. Easily 5 years ago. Regarding Bob's comment about ultrafil, nothing beats that stuff. All older sports jerseys had a substantial weight to them which made you feel like you're getting something for your money. All this lightweight nonsense is great to play in, but you're paying so much money for something that doesn't feel substantial. I wish Reebok created a jersey entirely out of ultrafil/xtrafil. I've grown to much prefer the modern, tapered cut of Reebok (and Adidas to an extent), but always prefer the feel (and warmth) of a classic ultrafil. Now THAT is an ambitious project I should tackle; creating a modern fitting ultrafil jersey... The Hawks wore both 1.0 and 2.0 during the 2007/2008 season. Depended on the time of year and the player. 2.0 https://www.gamewornauctions.net/products/2007_08_Craig_Adams_Chicago_Blackhawks_Game_Worn_Jersey_WWW_Photo_Match_Team_Letter-6545-154.html another 2.0 https://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/chicago-blackhawks-07-08-game-worn-457307754 1.0 Hull tribute warmup https://www.gamewornauctions.net/products/2007_08_Andrew_Ladd_Chicago_Blackhawks_Pre_Game_Skate_Worn_Jersey_WWW_Bobby_Hull_9_Team_Letter-9630-209.html The description says 2.0, but the sleeve photo definitely looks like a 1.0 https://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/bryan-bickell-chicago-blackhawks-game-457858903

    Off center?! It's like they thought he was number 11 but then realized, 's***, no, we have to add a 9!'.

    Thank you. This one is from the 18/19 season. They may only wear initials on home/road jerseys. Tyler wasn't an assistant captain last season. On the alts, neither brother has an initial. You freaked me out for a second thinking the customization was wrong! hah!

    Who is Henry? Do game worn soccer jerseys sell for much? They’re just workout shirts with screened on numbers.

    Anyone have any info on this NY Rangers jersey?

    Is the CCM a patch? What’s the extra fabric around the CCM logo? Can you provide more photos?

    It is good or not?

    No, it’s real you guys! ”Send me a photo of what an authentic 2009 Winter Classic Blackhawks jersey look like because this one looks the same as what was in the Blackhawks Store in 2009. The NHL logo shows the stitches on the back, the material is correct, and the piping along the neck has the grey RBK in the pattern to verify it’s legit. The crest and numbers have popped off the jersey a little because it was hand washed.” Authentic jerseys dont hold up well if the crest and numbers start to ‘pop off’ because it’s been friggin hand washed!! Lol!

    the Blackhawks game worn group on Facebook may be able to help if you haven’t already asked there

    It’s possible but seems unlikely given the light amount of wear for a jersey that was used for two seasons. Is there any pilling on the elbows or anyone else inside of the jersey? Salt deposits or noticeable wear on the fight strap? I tried looking for a high res photo from the 93-94 season as the patch removable would be blatantly obvious. Unfortunately I couldn’t find anything high res from that season so I’m not much more help.

    Well I picture Shakira, but Wyclef always has to have the last word

    Picked up the other Sikura brother directly from the IceHogs. I friggin love this alternate. It's so different from anything else a Hawks team would wear. The silver layer on the crest and numbers is subtle, but really pops when light hits it in person and the number font is simple, but different enough to be unique. Now I just gotta make it all the way out to Rockford for a game next time I'm in town so I can wear the thing! Anytime I hear an announcer talk about the Sikura brothers, the Wyclef Jean lyric 'Shakira! Shakira!' from the song My Hips Don't Lie pops into my head

    Yeah, that's pretty absurd. Something like that I'd step in and volunteer to help

    response when I asked if the seller was aware the jersey he was attempting to sell was a Chinese knockoff... ”it’s not a knockoff. It was made in Canada by CCM. It’s an authentic jersey that was donated to a charity auction in 2009 that I bid on. It’s the jersey made available to fans before the Winter Classic and mirrors that jersey. It’s not the alternate jersey from later in that season which had modifications to the design. It has the black drawstring at the neck laces and the player names are in beige. Estimated value new with tags was $200-250.” What do you guys think? https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F323735802739
