  1. @StayFrosty I post blanks I'm pumped about. You don't have to ask to post pics, it's an open forum and a number of us are bored in the summer off season and just want to see or hear anything about jerseys. If you want to show us a sweet Adidas MiC, go for it.

    I don't understand the mystery stain either. Just try to clean it and if it works out you can sell for more. As a buyer I don't mind the mystery stain, it's netted me one really awesome rare jersey recently for a steal. But not disclosing flaws and such is a no no to me too. I was talking to another IJer about this and we agreed why wouldn't you just disclose a flaw, more often then not it will be met with an, "no worries, no problem" sort of response. The price might take a slight hit if you're selling but at least you made an honest deal and have a good contact going forward and potentially more deals. I'd say most guys who collect only authentics want the condition to be pristine as possible. I think? Most of us are intimate enough with our collection to be able to point out flaws and keep things honest, so why not. Recently, I got an awesome jersey that looked mint and flawless and it was advertised that way too. When I got it, it wasn't exactly what I was expecting. We've all been there and I know I'm picky about condition to a point, but with what we spend on this hobby we should be. I reached out to the seller about 2 small black marks on the crest (which could be removed with a little effort) and a half inch noticeable scratch through the embroidery on the crest that can't be repaired (a flaw). The seller said he was sorry, it was his fault for not going over it better and immediately asked for my paypal to refund me some $ for working on the stains. The scratch is minor enough that I didn't care since the kit is the star of the jersey anyway. But had he told me upfront about the scratch and marks and sent a pic we probably would have came to the same conclusion of a minor discount on asking price vs me paying full then getting the discount later for him realizing he didn't disclose properly. Regardless the seller took responsibility and was great about it and I'm sure he'll do a better 'once over' before listing next time. Or he'll clean it/fix it himself before listing. I told him I wasn't going to say no to a slight refund, and told him I appreciated it... and he said it's the right thing to do, it was his mistake, he should have gone over it better. Disclosing seems like the least painful route, but sometimes it is understandable that a seller may have missed something. I'll always give the seller the benefit of the doubt that they missed it assuming they try to make it right.
  3. I heard it's cuz Keener needs a break or holiday, which is fair, they've probably been flat out for a while. 6 months seems excessive to shut it down though.
  4. Ahh it's summer, it's slow, here's a blank I just got in today. Moncton Hawks size 50 CCM Maska. It's the Jets farm team from the late 80s early 90s so this is very obviously a repurposed Jets jersey since there is a CCM NHL tail tag. I want to keep it a Hawks though and do up a Beauregard 30 from his AHL days. Huge fan of Eastern Canada in general so I'm excited to add this one. Fight strap was cut out and a couple minor marks to clean up but all part of the deal. I'll have Keener do it up in the same way a Jets jersey would be done. Same fonts and the twill nameplate. If anyone comes across early 90s AHL from Atlantic Canada please let me know, I've got the Fredericton Canadiens now this one, looking for PEI, Cape Breton, Halifax, Saint John and St. John's eventually.
  5. Cool, I'm sorta the same with the goalies, but I couldn't pass up a Francis rookie. Was my 1st and only too. That seller is still sitting on some gems, he surfaces every now and again, but is mostly MIA which is sorta too bad but good for my wallet.
  6. Haha, Awesome, came full circle then because I bought that White Sandow Whalers about 1.5 years ago and tipped FuriousD off to the owner of the green. Such mint jerseys for early 80s. Enjoy! Who are you going to customize it as?

    It is good or not?

    Crosby never wore CCM so technically it's a jersey foul if you care about having a Crosby jersey to specs. 2003-04 would have been the last year for CCM 2005-06 was Reebok at the time of Sid's debut nhluniforms.com If you're not concerned about whether he wore CCM or Reebok and you just want an authentic jersey I'm not sure what a fair price is. Maybe 125 US.

    I tried to go thru some youtube footage but couldn't find anything. From what I've seen in other images it looks like Bure and Linden were wearing the A on the black road jersey.
  9. Right on. Thanks to both you and the last owner for letting it go. I'm happy to have it and know that if Keener did the work, it'll be spot on.

    I think I've seen scrabble logo referenced in the jersey book for a CCM small block with no colour embroidered into the blocks of the logo... like the Modano team choice jsh posted. I could be making stuff up too, or imagining I've seen it in the jersey book, I dunno 😅
  11. Yeah it was in the back of my mind that it was incorrect when I asked the seller about the customization, but I still went for it being a Palffy fan and all.
  12. Yeah, when I saw it was ultrafil I had to go for it. I've had the air knit in the past and I let it go. I'll keep you in mind and if I do decide to move it I'll give you first chance at it. Maybe there's a trade to be had at some point, who knows?
  13. Found, I had one on hand. I guess though if someone does have a late 80s style fight strap with the two full button snaps on it, I'd prefer it to the more modern style one I have. Hit me up if so, thanks.

    It is good or not?

    Yup, that's what I thought. I think I have enough jerseys with original SC100 patches on them that I shoulda/coulda figured that out. Just thought it was a different looking repro than I've seen in the past so I thought I'd ask. Thanks

    Well wtf, How'd you miss it?! 😉 Seriously though, I appreciate it!
  16. Couple more jerseys added today. Size 52 Lightning Rheaume 1992-93. 2 Cool things of note, it is ultrafil which is to my understanding, what they wore in preseason 92-93... and it has the black CCM logo indicating the inaugural season as I've been informed by Spudrock that the CCM was blue the 2nd season and beyond. Apparently Keener did the custom job. Size XL Hi-Li Ice Sheen Kalamazoo Wings 1990-91. Was a gamer, but has been stripped and cleaned up and will one day become a Kari Takko. Love how the Kalamazoo jerseys mirrored the design of the North Stars/Stars jerseys, outside the logo and shine of the fabric of course. HUGE thank you to @spudrock512 for taking care to clean and strip the jersey for me. @jsh139 looks like I got a little North Star flavour today anyhow.

    Original or Repro? Any help would be appreciated... I'm leaning toward repro.
  18. Yessir, very happy with it. :) I don't imagine it would be a sticking point when it comes time to sell... then again we are a strange and picky breed of collectors so I might have my work cut out.

    Come on dude, why? Just why???!😭 , what a price on that! I'd be stripping it but still wouldn't be into it for very much regardless. Nice to know they come up every once in a while. Really want that scrabble logo CCM to do up a Team Choice beauty! If one of you members here came up with that find and want to make a profit, I'm yer guy!!!
  20. That's what I thought too, but I wasn't the one who sent it in as I bought it from a seller who already had it done by Keener. I prefer the kiss cut anyway even if it's not quite to spec.
  21. How does a blank TI even sneak out there? And what steal, nicely done Gewarjis! I can only hope I have as much luck come this years WC when I try to track down a Stars jersey. I had one pick up that came in this week. A rookie Palffy to round out my collection, kiss cut work done by Keener.
  22. I don't think you'd come across as a jerk for simply passing on an offer. He low balled you because he knew what you paid so you have every right to politely decline. That said, I'm about as far from a Hawks fan as they come, but I did like Panger. Sounds like a really cool jersey, you should post pics here.
  23. And I'm at a point where I've done my big purge and rid myself of all the excess I don't need or doesn't fit in the collection. So I can't tell myself I will sell another to make up for this one... I have nothing to sell. It's not a bad spot to be in I guess, helps minimize the impulse in most instances.
  24. No doubt, it is a little crazy, but this is only coming from an authentic collector. I'd imagine being a gamer collector could get a little scary.
  25. This year from March 2019 to March 2020, I've budgeted a certain amount I want to spend on jersey, customization, misc. It's the first year I've tried to limit myself to see how I'd do. And I'm not doing too well at all. Only 4 months in and I've spent over 2/3 of what I've allotted. Dammit anyway. I budgeted 2200 for new purchases and 1300 for customization and miscellaneous. So 3500 for the year. Since I only collect authentics this gives me a decent amount to work with. I'm down to 600 for new purchases and 400 for custom work. I'm doing this in Canadian funds too so its more like 2500 USD to work with. I'm finding it doesn't go very far. It's mostly an exercise of interest to track how I do, but I'd confidently say I'll be bending the rules before the end of my one year. Just spent over 500 today 😅.
