    Adidas NHL On Ice Jersey

  2. I’m not positive about this, but it seems to me that the Ducks switched over to 2.0’s somewhat later in the 07/08 season compared to most other teams, probably as late as their 4th set. So I would think that it’s pretty safe to say that in December they were still using their 1.0 sets.

    Help with Sharks Jersey Please

    You are correct about the NHL shields. The one on this jersey is typical of Kohos, but when Reebok took over the NHL contract in 2005, they rebranded many blank CCM and Koho jerseys with the Reebok logo, since Reebok’s parent company (Adidas), also owned CCM and Koho at the time. They apparently didn’t bother to stitch the NHL shield patch on some of these rebranded jerseys. I would think the manufactured date is 2002; at least that’s the way it is on other stickers I’ve seen.

    Capitals black alt customization?

    I have a feeling that even if you ask them, I'd be surprised if they admitted that "they can't do it correctly." I can't find the post, but you might just want to PM guam about it; even if it wasn't him who made that comment, he'd probably know the answer anyway. I imagine that the curved one-piece name is so difficult to nail, just like the Fisherman font (also done by Cutting Edge), that nobody else out there would be able to get it exact.

    Capitals black alt customization?

    DropThePucks has a 1999/2000 Oates black alt gamer with the NHL2000 patch and an orange NHL shield, so I guess not all gamers from that year had the silver shield.

    Capitals black alt customization?

    My memory might not be accurate on this because it was years ago, but didn’t someone here (maybe guam64) say that EPS’ customization for the black alt wasn’t accurate? I would probably try Cutting Edge for that one.

    With all the talk about customization removal, I forgot to give some props for that beautiful Caps jersey!!! That thing looks to be in amazing shape!

    You just reminded me to actually check on that, lol. 😄

    It's unfortunate that they would stitch the letters through both the nameplate and jersey. Would have made your task easier if they hadn't done that. I still hope that mess at the bottom of the T is just paper and not the machine running the threads over and over in the same place. And it looks like you might possibly have some straight stitching to remove from the nameplate edges as well.

    Yeah, but if the thread is really thin like on mine, it's tough to cut through a ball of stitches with threads that thin. The letter might just cling to the jersey by the corner until you cut through every last thread. I ended up tearing a couple of small holes in the fabric because of that. Again, I hope your threads are thicker and easier to remove... EDIT: Whoops, I misunderstood what you meant about the paper backing- if that white stuff is paper and not threads, then you'll be fine. Just ignore what I said above! ☺️

    Oh man, looking at those globs of stitches on the nameplate letters reminds me of a factory-lettered job I just finished 2 weeks ago. Took forever to cut through all those stitches. Plus, in addition to each of three layers being individually stitched directly to the jersey, I had to deal with three additional rows of straight stitching on each character! You can’t just run the seam ripper through those like on zigzag stitches. Looked like this: Took me around an hour and a half to remove each number! Worst stripping job I’ve ever had; hope yours isn’t as much trouble!

    Are you sure about that? I'm no expert on Premiers, but all the ones I've seen have the vector embroidered directly into the Premier fabric, which is not the same material as the legit Edge vector patch. You'd literally have to cut a hole in the Premier to remove the vector, which isn't a patch.

    That may have been what killed your order. I sent them a Caps jersey in November and got it back by New Year’s.
  14. Oilers didn’t switch to 2.0’s until 2012/13, so Hall’s rookie jerseys would have been 1.0’s.

    I’ll save you the trouble. Koho gamers don’t have double layer fight strap attachments. 😊
