  1. It arrived today v. 8.0

    Pretty sure in the "How To" thread Slim removed that Cosby stamp from a Blues jersey but it took a LOT of elbow grease. To me it's not worth the risk, I'd leave it as-is
  2. eBay version 4.0

    I contacted the seller and asked for a measurement across the hem. He said 25.5 across the bottom so it's probably about a 52 I was kicking it around but $500 + strip and hope it comes clean + fix the fight strap + relettering correctly = a tall stack of cash
  3. eBay version 4.0

    I'd ask for the measurement to be along the bottom hem. Pit to pit could be including the gussets which I have seen sellers do that to make a jersey seem bigger than it actually is.
  4. It arrived today v. 8.0

    I picked this 1999-2000 Pro Player Rangers jersey up because I don't have enough projects.... and I don't have one. It stripped clean with very little resistance Maybe it's because of how easily it stripped, maybe it's because 2 weeks ago I was brushing show off my truck and today I have the patio door open enjoying mid 70's temps but I gotta say, I think this is my favorite Rangers style. The blue is a little lighter and the ringers are a little wider. Overall a beauty - now I gotta get a blue 2000 patch and figure out who to put on it.

    Does your wife have a sister? And people who don't like a good Simpsons reference probably have an awesome jersey collection from China Good stuff
  6. The feedback thread

    Just got a few from Mfitz804 Great to deal with Thank you
  7. The Official IceJerseys MLB thread

    I could be 100yrs old and in a coma - hearing the sounds of that series will always give me goosebumps.

    I never thought I'd find the 92' All Star jerseys or a reasonably priced Rangers TBTC. It'll come I just gotta grit my teeth a little longer - but it's always good to have extra eyes. The thrill of the hunt!

    Yeah, HM is cool and all - but if he was REALLY cool he'd find me an authentic Canadiens TBTC for a Deal.
  10. eBay version 4.0

    It's out of my price range but was curious. You guys never fail I was at work and I didn't have my handy dandy Jersey Bible (I should've thought to look there before posting) Thanks for all the great feedback.
  11. eBay version 4.0

    I'm sure by now you all have come across this one. Just wondering if the "TEAM CHOICE" on the hem was supposed to be screened on or if this is correctly embroidered on? I wasn't able to find any close up shots to determine.
  12. eBay version 4.0

    Do you think they would've let him wear that with no shoulder patches? That's what my pre-season game worns look like
  13. eBay version 4.0

    Not at all, Just trying to contribute. I'm thinking this one is probably a team issue they tried to use up or hung on to in case they picked up Cam Neely (didn't he wear Ultra-fil with Boston when their jerseys were Air-Knit?)
  14. eBay version 4.0

    That's cool but I'm pretty sure the crest was screened on the pre-season ones and I don't think they had shoulder patches either. It may be a left over blank and someone put the patches on later LAK beat me by seconds
  15. Team in decline - cheap jersey flood?

    I'm on the flip side. I only collect Retail Authentic because... I have not noticed any decline in the prices we'll see what the future brings.
  16. Collecting Your Least Favorite Team

    None of collecting 400+ jerseys makes any sense, just ask my family and friends who don't collect. One day I realize I'm going to have to move them or accept that they will be an awesome find at good will
  17. Collecting Your Least Favorite Team

    I started collecting each teams road jersey (when they wore home white) Now I have all home and road and I'm working on alternates. You don't really appreciate each jersey until you have it in hand As a Hawks fan the Red Wings and Blues jerseys were a little tough to purchase but in hand you really appreciate the simplicity and contrast. I still hate our rivals but appreciate the designs. I think by limiting yourself you are missing out.
  18. eBay version 4.0

    Odd that so many size 50's have been coming up
  19. It is good or not?

    I wish I would've seen it before you did Nice pick up, what size?
  20. It is good or not?

    I have a few of those Big Block CCM's with no shield. I thought I got duped but was later happy after talking with Mike and getting confirmation mine were also 89-90 jerseys. And that Gunzo's Frankenjersey was taken down then relisted at $500 OBO - looks like someone bought it for $225 One born every minute.
  21. It is good or not?

    Slim's book is an awesome resource, I bought a few extra and gave them out as gifts. That Hawks jersey is a Frankenstein hot mess. The fight strap looks like a mid 90's strap along with the crest, The Gunzo's should be heat pressed (I've never come across an embroidered one) It has the small block CCM tag on the lower hem which would be 80's But it has remnants of the numeric size tag of a mid 90's I'd stay away, his starting price is more than it's worth but I am willing to bet it get's to a bidding war and someone wastes a lot of money. .
  22. The Want List

    This guy used to have them (I bought one and it was near perfect) You might reach out to him and see if he can get more.

    I picked up a jersey I had my eye on just to see how the coupon worked. You only get 20% *up to $100 (not sure if that was already mentioned) Worked fine by me, I was gonna try and get the seller down a little and this worked out perfectly so I didn't have to try and chew em. Thank you to all that brought it to our attention.
  24. How To STRIP A JERSEY 101

    I'm wondering if they hammered the #'s down on that Pens because it was so close to Crosby's #'s and they didn't want someone to redo it and claim it was his gamer? Has anyone tried to strip a different player from the same team? I've seen a lot of success stories on here so far.

    Is it just the pic or is the top one a little darker in color?
