    The feedback thread

    Big thanks to Slim for my latest Hawks jersey. Kinda goes without saying that he's an asset to all of us but he's even cooler when he sells me cool stuff. I also picked up his Sens book - awesome! Thanks Chris

    Is the CCM on the hem correct? It looks off to me. I know I have a "Gold Toe" and I don't recall the CCM looking dirrerent like that.

    You had me freaked out for a minute as I'm stuck with the ol' ball n' chain tonight. That turned out fantastic! I am inspired to get mine done and I don't have to fight you for a banged up jersey for the shoulder patches Really digging it!

    Probably one of my personal favorite styles the Habs put out. That's a Beaut!

    eBay version 4.0

    Just a "shaking my head" moment and I need to vent... I made an offer I felt was fair on eBay for a jersey (let's just say $200 for math purposes), the seller countered at $250. I sent them a message and said my initial offer of $200 was my max and I would re-submit it if they wanted to consider it after a few days. Seller responds that his counter of $250 is the lowes he is willing to go. OK, fine... I'll pass I get an email notification that the jersey sold for $190.... Happy Friday ya crazy Canadian whoever you are

    How To STRIP A JERSEY 101

    I bought a lint shaver, didn't have the success that others had but I bought a really cheap one. I stripped a baseball jersey recently that was ultrafil and used a Lady Bic razor on a hard flat surface, it really did a great job. *Ya don't press or pull hard, just let it glide over and it'll clean it up.

    Greg and I have discussed a road trip. It's been discussed in other threads, one day I want to be a part of this with video to share
  12. Looks like you did a nice job, I would soak in Oxi-Clean then hit the glue areas with Goof Off or Acetone. One thing I have found that works for clumps of glue like the right side of the #1 is to hit it with Goof off and drag the back side (dull side) of a butter knife over it, I know people freak when I suggest a KNIFE on a jersey but all you are using is the flat dull side, it pulls or stretches the fabric just enough to loosen the glue in spots and you can peel it off. After that, another soak in Oxi-Clean and hit it with an Iron with lots of steam and it should look good as new. And, of course.... hang dry

    It's nice to see some Adidas leaking out, It gives hope that I may one day get a hand on some. That's a cool jersey to have! I wonder, since they are making changes to some of the teams jersey design, and I've seen a fire sale on the Indo stuff maybe they will make the Adidas available for purchase soon.

    As I understand, The perfectly rectangular one was on the gamers, and the one WE have where the asterisk juts out was on retail jerseys which are only slightly different from the gamers in that they don't have the fight strap and the neck tags would have a "XL" size instead of a numaric sizing. I also was told it would be easy to turn a retail one into an accurate replica of a gamer. I'd be curious to see the crest on the one you have - like I said the stem of the Leaf on mine seems thinner than what I've seen on game worn jerseys from that year so maybe the crest is different too - in the end I know I don't have gamer $ so I try to get a retail that looks as close as I can get it without breaking the bank. http://thirdstringgoalie.blogspot.com/2011/09/1985-86-toronto-maple-leafs-miroslav.html?_sm_au_=iSVkW8CppfF47Rkj
