  1. How To STRIP A JERSEY 101

    Not a Hawks jersey 😉
  2. How To STRIP A JERSEY 101

    Ugh. Some jerseys I just have the worst luck!! This one especially. Only positive I can see is that the numbers were very soft and what was left on the jersey doesn't feel thick and is very flexible. I'm hoping that means it'll all come off a little easier. Still more time than I was hoping to spend on the jersey. If it doesn't come off clean I'm up a creek as this was supposed to be converted into a single digit jersey...
  3. Adidas NHL On Ice Jersey

    That’s what prevents me from buying any Indo jerseys. Just biding my time for when Canadian jerseys are available.

    Shoulder patches are the only thing keeping you from buying an Adizero jersey? I could think of a half dozen other things before shoulder patches came into the equation

    Holy crap, that Hossa is glorious!!! Game worn?! Where in the hell did you find that!?!? Man, talk about a grail jersey right there.

    I almost don’t want to post after that Canucks pickup, so instead, a teaser. Hope to have this project wrapped up by the time the season starts this is just one part of it [/img]

    WOW! That is awesome! I never realized the sleeve numbers were practically at the wrist

    No Adidas jerseys (practice or game). Adidas socks and clothing, but that was it. The sale was pretty picked over already and today was the first VIP day for season ticket holders. Glad I didn't bother waiting in line Saturday. I was emailing Meigray the other day and they said all Adidas practice jerseys they have are on the site and there won't be any new stock added for the expo. Was really hoping they'd add some size 54 jerseys at a slightly discounted price for the expo, but it doesn't look like that's gonna happen. Might pick up a black and white 56 practice jersey just to have.

    Ordered one of these after the tragic accident. Finally came in Also stopped by the Caps sale and picked up a few extra things
  10. Street Hockey gear

    I'm using a pair of Bauer Vapors that I've had for like 5-6 years. Forget the exact model. At the time, I was also using some ratty Easton shin pads I used to play ice in, regular ice gloves, and a clearance rack stick. Of course, I was just playing pickup games on the beaches of Los Angeles; not in a league. Haven't played roller since I moved to DC last summer. Strictly on ice now. Skates were easily the most expensive part as I already had the gloves/shins, and the stick I think I got for under $50.
  11. What jersey did you wear today?

    Most relatives were on the buses, but I suppose it's possible. The jersey was huge! The Capitals hardly offer anything other than 58 so I'd imagine that is what size it is. They have a few 56's here and there, but most TI/GW jerseys I've seen from them are 58.
  12. What jersey did you wear today?

    I didn't wear this jersey, but seeing as I live in DC now I went down to the parade this past week. The old timer in front of me was sporting a TI SS jersey. Couldn't help but stare at it. Didn't strike up a convo to ask where he got it. I don't recall blank SS jerseys being available on Meigray

    Thanks! I'm definitely happy with how they turned out. I probably would have been safe making them 1/2" larger, but they're fine as-is. Now hopefully I can sell a few to make back some of the money it cost to make them! haha! Definitely not planning on breaking even, but am happy to have this jersey 'complete'
  14. Meigray Expo 2018

    Funny, I did the $100 grab bag once and got a size 58 6100 Panthers. Said I'd never do a grab bag again.
  15. Adidas NHL On Ice Jersey

    So you think Adidas will change up the template after just two seasons? I can’t imagine that will happen for something as minor as the collar, but I’ll try to remain optimistic
