  1. What jersey did you wear today?

    Didn't want to start a new thread about this commercial but it always gets me to take a look at the collection and get one out to wear for a playoff game. Tonight it's the '92-'93 Selanne away Jets.

    Stumbled across this by chance and picked it up. If it was worn it doesn't show it.

    I was the same way, anything newer just wasn't of interest to me but once I got that first 2.0 in the mail the shopping spree began. It actually helped jump-start my collecting again so it was a good thing all around.

    Same here, it was either pay the going rate or do without. 99% of my collection are CCM's '94-'95 and older but was told I should give the 2.0's a try. Glad I listened, I really like the loose fit and the feel of them. It was nice to finally add the current 'Hawks players to my 80's/90's 'Hawks stuff, it makes the collection feel more complete.

    Decided it was time to open the piggy bank and add one of these to the collection.

    Wore the Seabs tonight for his 1000th game.

    That's about how I looked after cleaning off what looked like at least 10 years worth of dirt, stains, pulls and pilling. It was worth it though, it turned out great.

    Turned a neglected ebay Amonte into a Dougie Gilmour. It's great how these old jerseys respond to a little scrubbing and clean up, you'd never know it had been previously customized. Thanks to TMLFAN for talking me into making it a Gilmour.

    Just blanks, not team issued.

    It might have been that I used my PP balance for the first purchase and not the second. I tried a third time just to see if it would work again and it said the coupon had been used.

    I was surprised too but being ebay was paying the tab I didn't question it. JB gets his full price and I get a deal. Win Win.

    I used the 20% off with JB and got a home and away 'Hawks and an '09 'Hawks WC. Best part is you could use the coupon more than once so I did two orders and saved $165 total. Hopefully they do this again soon, it got me three jerseys I really wanted.

    I don't know if it will work but years ago a collector online had a similar situation with an air-knit jersey. He claimed he got a paint tray like you use for painting a house and filled it with acetone or some other remover and laid just the back part in the chemical and let it soak, checking it regularly. He claimed it did remove quite a bit of the color stain but did take quite a bit of time. Then he took a 50/50 mix of bleach and water, did the same and said he got pretty good results with no damage to the fabric. Unfortunately he didn't post pics. If you're a gambler it might be worth a try.

    Thanks, Blurry. Yeah, post some of your stuff. It's always nice to see some cool old CCM jerseys and learn a thing or two. Coffey was popular enough to have plenty of pics and footage to look at so that helped out a lot. I wanted to be as accurate as possible with that '87-'88 because stripping it wouldn't be an option. One day I hope to find a Sandow or NIke Coffey that isn't a small fortune to buy.

    Thanks for the feedback. I checked out lots of game used sites, game pics and even cards to get it done correctly....or as close to correct as possible. Even did the separate air-knit swatch for the A. You're right about it being for the '87-'88 season, I wanted his first year Pens from the low budget vinyl days.
