  1. Not so much an arrival but I finally completed this project recently. When I first bought the blank it was a 1989 big block no shield with round button 80s fight strap and the heat pressed rubbery all-star shoulder patch. Since getting it I've had Keener add the NHL shield, I've added a size tag and center ice tagging, swapped out the fight strap for a flat button style, swapped out the rubbery all-star patch for the proper woven one, and stitched down both the SC100 and Montreal ASG patches. So it's finally converted to a 1993 jersey. And fun fact, Casey won the goalie competition in this his only all-star selection. And the proper woven all-star patch just added:
  2. I usually wash them (sit them in a stain remover diluted bath, rinse and hang to dry) when I first receive them, just to maybe brighten the colours and refresh the fabric anyway. So they're clean going into the closet and I might pull one or two out to wear in the course of a year so...
  3. 1) I have no good reason why but I've done it 2) Very very occasional wearer of jerseys - 95% remain unworn in my collection
  4. LOL, great anology, I don't make it a habit of using acetone, but I have and it's effective. On some real dark black marks I've used it and had some success. I more often than not just treat spots with a stain remover let it sit and then scrub them out with a rag or let them sit in a cold stain remover diluted bath. I'm one who rarely uses the washing machine on a jersey. I think I've done it twice or 3 times total.
  5. Do others sometimes use acetone as a stain remover? Just looking at what Phil was trying to tackle there, I can say I've used acetone on something like that with success. I agree with both Bob and Fitz method though too.
  6. Not a jersey, but the lot cost me as much as a jersey and is an arrival I'm pumped for. An original 91 Cup Patch for my home white North Stars and 3 PHPA 30th patches from the 97-98 AHL/IHL season. I contacted someone within the PHPA through their ebay account and they said they searched high and low for 30th patches but couldn't find any. Besides they just celebrated their 50th. I just picked up the 91 Cup patch recently and by chance the guy I bought it from knew a guy who had a stack of the PHPA 30th patch, so I sorta lucked into finding them. Now I've got some sewing to do.
  7. Yeah, who knows. As soon as I emailed Josh he was on it. He just emailed the invoice minutes ago and I paid. Should finally see them soon. The first few times I used EPS the waits were half as long or less. Oh well, I'm sure I'll be pleased with the work anyway.
  8. I wouldn't hold my breath... I've had an order with them 20 weeks for a couple nameplates. Since June 10. I did email for a second time about it today though and Josh said it's complete and will likely be invoiced in the next few days. Hopefully you're not waiting much longer.
  9. Haha, awesome! Look forward to seeing this order of yours now. And at least if yours are coming 5 weeks after payment, I should see my order before Christmas.
  10. Jsh139s order came back to him pretty quick after he paid, I want to say 3 weeks. So I doubt it will be much longer for you.
  11. For anyone who got a last minute order in with Keener looks like the wait is going to be a little longer than normal. I sent an order Sept 10 that was just invoiced so 6 weeks for invoice, and likely a bit of a wait yet for finished product.
  12. Is the 91 patch original? Looks close only thing I notice different on mine is the spacing between 9s of 19 and 91. Note the green background - signed, Salty Stars fan.

    It is good or not?

    I have to come clean and admit that it did sorta bother me having a born on tag that was 2 years older than a jersey I was trying to replicate. It is a Sabres with 95' born on tag and I had the SC100 patch on it. Once I found an original Sabres 25th patch I stripped the SC100 off to make it accurate to the born on tag. But I like @jsh139 idea on the subject best in hindsight lol.
  14. Wow, great story about how these projects all came to be, super impressive to say the least.
  15. I think most of us collect our favourite teams and players and look to find some rare awesome jerseys. It's a very personal endeavour with no borders. I think a lot of the fun for many members here is likely the thrill of the hunt, meeting other great collectors with similar tastes and interest, and ultimately making the purchase. You on the otherhand seem to like to just hit NHL shop and buy up anything you can think of, wash, rinse, repeat. To me that takes the fun out of the hobby, but to you, you must enjoy buying. To each their own though, you're free to collect whatever you want in any fashion you want. That said no one is looking down at you because you purchase Indozeros, but I'll also guarentee NO ONE is jealous of your purchasing frenzy like you eluded to recently. Happy collecting!
  16. Sounds awesome, those IceSheen are really cool, you're right just like a tarp. Good luck on the project, sounds like its headed in the right direction!
  17. This came late last week. 94-95 Blank Kalamazoo Wings size 52. Exact jersey of the North Stars/Stars just with the different logo.
  18. Looking at those Canucks skate jerseys just makes me want one. Great haul!
  19. Anyone have any of these leather straps from M&N jersey fight straps available? I could use 1 or 2.. thanks.
  20. Seconded! So cleeeeean.

    eBay version 4.0

    Wow, crazy that the Conacher subject brought forth all these findings. The big thing I've noticed on some of his fakes is the fightstrap is not legit. Look at any of his Fishermen or those red Sabres alternates, they all have cheap a$$ fight straps in them. I've bought a Canucks red 90s 3rd jersey from him in the past, thinking it was legit. After talking to a few members here, they pointed out some inconsistencies with the tagging, sewing and such. The big thing was the fight strap was facing the wrong way. He claimed it was still legit, but I returned it and was fully refunded. Lesson learned, won't go there again.

    eBay version 4.0

    But it's a gamer shouldn't it already have those original patches? Or was it maybe a 90-91 gamer that he slapped the replica patches on to make it more desirable in the fashion of the 91-92? Otherwise if it was a 91-92 maybe he or someone else harvested the real patches and put on the replicas. Who knows I guess, just best to stay away.

    eBay version 4.0

    It's incredible this guys jerseys all have replica patches. Check out his Conacher Devils gamer and see the replica 75th patch.

    Protoype Jerseys

    I like the Nike Swift also, I have Team Canada from 2010 and 2014 and really like the feel of them. They do seem super light, probably nice to play in too.
  25. I've heard of other members on here waiting longer for one-off type jobs so maybe mine fits more into that category.
