    Adidas NHL On Ice Jersey

    Agreed. I was afraid for my wallet if they went with the late 60s whites (I have the late 60s Reebok MIC throwback WC/3rd and it is spectacular) ... whew!

    CCM Vintage Authentic MIC

    I should add that there seems to be some variation with the stitching and details on the CCM Vintage neck tags. A quick look at the Vintage CCMs on JB's site, there are in fact Authentic On-Ice Jersey tags with stitching that is vertical along the full length of the side of the neck tag. There also appears to be variations with the Vintage Hockey wording near the V on the tag. Some have Vintage Hockey above the V, while others have Vintage above, and Hockey below the V.

    CCM Vintage Authentic MIC

    Yes, I see the stitch pattern is all the way across the top, with a short horizontal stitches in each of the lower corners (roughly a centimeter long, or a touch less). In contrast, the 550 replicas have similar tags but the stitching is vertical - top to bottom - along the full length of the two sides only, and the tag says "Official Licensed Jersey".

    eBay version 4.0

    I mispoke, I looked and it's now $40 for tax and $150 for duty. I have absolutely noticed though, that I have not been taxed on anything coming in USPS - Canada Post under $150, but have on those shipments over $150. Maybe just luck for my specific shipments or maybe they just aren't bothering???

    eBay version 4.0

    GSP is an evil deal breaker. I'll never ask for a mis-statement for a seller. I will ask for USPS though, as they include tracking and hand off to Canada Post - and *sometimes* Canada Customs won't assess tax (their choice - and duty never applies to Canadian or US made products). And now the exempt threshold for Canada Customs is $150 so much more can come over without tax!! And yes UPS ground is evil too. Rediculous, unnecessary "Brokerage" Fees. Also a deal breaker.

    LondonGardens Sale Thread - Canucks/Flames - Price Drop!

    Bump for price drop.

    CCM Vintage Authentic MIC

    Thought it would be nice to have a catch all thread for these quality replicas. These are, as I understand, 6100 cut, with double elbows, long straps, number size MIC tags below a larger tag, and the larger tag has top and bottom horizontal thin blue stripes and a good size V on the right half of the tag. It seems some have a gold V on the chest (right side if you have it on), but many don't. And if they are blank they are likely to be legit. Please correct any of these points and add any other characteristics worth noting and we'll have a nice reference.

    Adidas NHL On Ice Jersey

    My guess is they realize the margin is much higher on the Offshore junk so you shall buy those. Just awful. Glad I have my 2.0s. The Canucks attempt at a throwback to the original blue is a mess. Couldn't they just do it like the original with the original Stick in Rink and striping. POS.

    7287 Production Cards!

    I'm guessing they identify the craftsperson who completed that task. If so, shows how much care is given to maintaining quality. Id love to know what each of the French phrases mean. Probably stages of completion (like each stage of sleeve build)? Would be a bit of insight on how they are built. I also wonder if some of the phrases only apply to certain teams specialized design?

    7287 Production Cards!

    Thought these might be of interest to the geekiness in many of us... Found these 7287 Production Cards in a few of the sealed bag 7287s I picked up in the dandy $49 Hockeymonkey sale. They are in French, of course, and reveal the level of detail and effort going into these wonderful pieces of art! Can anyone translate or explain more??

    Hockey Monkey 50% Sale

    Dealing with Jersey Baron

    I'm only guessing but is this a full time operation employing a numer of people, or is it one guy (with a crown!) doing it as a side project labour of love? There are very likely a lot of dollars tied up in inventory. but they/he may not care, based on the comment quoted above. If they/he is someone who did this as a labour of love and holding inventory/low sales are truly not a concern, the community should give him a big round of applause and thanks, because he has got a lot of really nice jerseys into a lot of happy hands!!! Here's hoping Adidas open up to selling to him sometime down the road.

    Dealing with Jersey Baron

    Well JB has had 7185 Premieres going back ages. So not sure if that is definitive indication of anything wrt Adidas MIC. Some WC 7185s were better than 'regular' 7185s, with constructed stripes and sewn on logos, so maybe the ones you are referring to are a little better than the rum of the mill ones. Anyone onow for sure?

    The Current Situation of the Secondary Market

    No telling for sure, but if there isn't a flood of MIC Adidas, maybe all the Edge 2.0s out there will have more value/hold value say 10 years down the road...
