    The last gamer I bought, it took them a couple of months to remove it from the site. Made me think they might have more than one jersey in the same set. Also happened to someone else at the same time. You just don’t know for sure if what you order is in stock until they charge you, I guess.

    Has anyone ever figured out when the 89/90 first set gold toes were actually used? I’ve seen footage of that season as early as October 89, and they are already wearing jerseys with the big blocks (without NHL shield) and the All-Star patch, presumably from the 2nd set. Were the first set ones used just in the preseason, or did they see any use in the first few games of the regular season?

    OK, thanks. I thought it might have something to do with you thinking you had the wrong hem logo or crest, or something like that. Except for the Captain’s C, the font doesn’t really look that off to me. But I’d certainly understand why you might want it as perfect as possible now that you have a great patch to put on it. 😊

    Just wondering, why do you need to strip it?

    Thanks, everyone! Tbart, the Simmer is from the latest GWA.

    1979/80 Game worn Charlie Simmer Kings road jersey, worn during his league-leading 56-goal season (along with 101 points, in only 64 games). NHL 1st All-Star Team season, during which he also had a 13-game goal scoring streak. Also just in from Keener: 1988/89 Luc Robitaille Kings road authentic. My 27th Robitaille jersey! 2008/09 Alexei Kovalev Canadiens Vintage throwback, with authentic MTL Centennial patch. I’m not much of a fan of Canadiens jerseys, but I have to admit I really love this one. I think it would be great if they used these as their road jerseys; IMO it’s way better than their current one.

    Wow, they gave you no discount at all for them not having to stitch the kit on to the jersey. I’d estimate that unless you can get the kit sewn on for less than $20, you probably didn’t save any money this way, but you might have saved yourself a couple of weeks in waiting time.

    I have a feeling they’re the same, but the CCM logo on mine has a trademark R jutting out, not an asterisk. The crest on mine has a thin stem too, but the whole crest is small, thin and cheap-looking. The leaf patches on the shoulders aren’t even stitched down. I was going to try and get it lettered up as a mid-80’s, but I gave up after not finding the right plastic clip fight strap, and realizing that this jersey really isn’t like the on-ice jerseys. We can trade pics by e-mail, if you like. Is yours a white one, btw? Mine is actually blue.

    Hey Bob, just curious about this one you have. Is the CCM hem patch perfectly rectangular, with an asterisk in the upper right corner, or does it have a rounded protuberance with the trademark R in the same corner? I might possibly have the same one you have.

    Some teams have a more accurate perforation grid than others. My EPS-lettered Canada looked really good but my Europe was slightly off.

    Yes, that’s exactly what I meant.

    I doubt very much that it was EPS. On retail USA WCOH jerseys, they got the perforated grid patterns wrong on the numbers. No reason to do them differently from the on-ice ones if they had been the official team customizer.

    Lol, I’m never going to forget that Nortel Networks ASG jersey that was your first strip job!

    I sent 3 jerseys. It better be $15 for the whole order, but I haven’t got the invoice yet. As far as I know, a shipping charge per jersey only applies to the shipment from Canada back to you in the US.
