    It arrived today v. 8.0

    Just added my first non-Avalanche jersey to the collection (although technically, he was an Avalanche for one season). This is the Inaugural 1993 Season On-Ice version of the Mighty Ducks CCM Ultrafil (size 48), and includes the “A” that Kariya wore only during the first Ducks season. Was one of my favorite players outside the Avs team for his entire career.

    Avs Adidas Team Issued MiC vs Adidas Indo Retail Authentic

    I think the real question that I can’t find an answer to is whether or not adidas is going to opt to sell the MiC versions in retail this year, in the same way that Reebok did in the second year following the release of the Edge series, after they only sold the Indo-Authentics in retail the first year?

    Tell me about it! Before I spotted it on eBay, I was about at the point where I wanted to just find the Avs Equipment Manager on LinkedIn and send him a message directly to see how I could buy a blank off them. Still in the market to find the white away, might still try that.

    Wow, you definitely got the best deal, hands down! I must have caught that seller on a second or third round of inventory; I paid $175 for my blank from them. Be sure to post your MacKinnon once it’s complete!

    Been working diligently to create a complete Avalanche Sakic Authentic jersey collection over the last two years, covering every era and style in the past 23 years. I'm currently up to 10 styles as of Friday, and being new to the forum, would love to share my collection so far! Being new to authentic collecting and customizing, I did experience some minor trial and error with customizers, and as such will notate where the style or font is slightly off for each. Up first is the Inaugural 1995-1996 Starter Mesh series (Home + Stanley Cup Away) Away with Stanley Cup Patch, Customized by Keener Jerseys: Home, Customized by Ice Jerseys (Nameplate is Edge material instead of Starter Mesh, name font size is smaller and not the correct type for a year one Avs)

    Avs Adidas Team Issued MiC vs Adidas Indo Retail Authentic

    @KB67 So glad to see you grabbed one of the team issued blanks as well! MacKinnon is the PERFECT choice for that beauty! I'm just curious, did you also get yours from koyunbaba.enterprises-2 on eBay back at the end of July? I'm still in the market to find a blank white adidas, so it would be great to see if you found another channel for those! @Dr_Puck @TMLFAN Appreciate the welcome and the backup! @mfitz804 Normally, I would try to follow the "jersey foul" rules, but in this case, I actually have made it my mission over the past two years to get a complete Sakic authentic collection covering every Avs jersey era and style (up to 10 styles as of today). And as @Dr_Puck mentioned, I feel like I can give a little slack to Sakic based on him being both a HoF'er and the GM, and, depending on how the Senators do this year (and us possibly being able to pick Jack Hughes in next year's draft with their pick), may prove to have been responsible for the greatest Avs trade since the Lindros/Forsberg trade.

    Avs Adidas Team Issued MiC vs Adidas Indo Retail Authentic

    My apologies, I just know that there’s been a lot of us Avs fans that have been waiting to see a comparison for the Adidas jerseys, so I decided to make a new thread for anyone searching (as I had been myself).
  15. I just got back my first Team Issued MiC Colorado Avalanche Adidas Home jersey that I sent in to get a Sakic customization (was a blank when it was purchased from the team). I’ve attached some comparison photos to the Adidas Indo “Authentic” retail version, for everyone’s reference (Dropbox Links). Surprisingly, while the MiC is definitely the better quality of the two, the Indo Adidas jerseys are definitely MUCH closer to the Adidas MiC than the Reebok Premiers were to the Reebok Edges, at least in terms of appearance and construction. Fabric-wise, the Adidas is definitely a hefier and thicker material, but the appearances are remarkably similar, even up close. For comparison, I’ve also included photos comparing my Avalache Reebok Edge Alternate vs the Reebok Premier Alternate, where you can clearly see the quality differences in appearance and construction: Adidas MiC vs Adidas Indo: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/ptkrvif36h71476/AACeopiCzIImN8Bzve8NkySZa?dl=0 Reebok Edge vs Reebok Premier: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/qb4x5faew2phxfi/AAClb5Zp4D9bSdK-7jLYvd4Qa?dl=0
