  1. The gold toe crest was used on entire sets of jerseys, not just for a few players.
  2. Looks like an original to me. Btw, I only see one picture; not sure if there’s supposed to be another.
  3. This matches what I’ve seen as well, in the few cases where I could see for sure what the material was. During the regular season anyway, the nameplates appear to be airknit. The nameplate covers an area which is almost 100% airknit anyway. For Custom Crafted, they used airknit plates on the Bruins during that year, as far as I know.

    Weird One

    Quality wise, it doesn’t look like a fake. It looks like an ultrafil 1996/97 authentic, except for some weird details. The crest, as you mentioned, has the colors of the road crest, not the home one. Other details on the crest don’t look quite right either; it almost looks like a replica crest. The jersey is missing the Wild Wing patches on the shoulders. And the neck tags below the Nike tag are not standard for a 96/97 Nike, or for any other year for that matter. Maybe it’s an early (prototype) version of that jersey.

    It is good or not?

    Sorry, just cleared up some space.

    Thanks for pointing that out; I hadn’t noticed that before. I see what you mean, and the March 08 pics definitely look old font, both the 2’s and 9’s. They are wearing 2.0’s, so it’s apparently not a 1.0 vs. 2.0 thing, but probably just a date issue. I saw a pic of a 1.0 with the new font as well, used late in the season. Does this shot of Toews in the background from November 07 look clear enough to you to confirm it’s the old font? Looks like 1.0’s to me: https://www.gettyimages.ca/detail/news-photo/daniel-sedin-of-the-vancouver-canucks-keeps-a-tight-check-news-photo/78088002

    I’m not quite sure what you meant about the “Nike/Koho font for the 2’s and 6’s.” I definitely see a difference between a #2 in the pre-Edge + Edge 1.0 era vs. the 2.0 era, but is there supposed to be a difference in the 6’s between those eras? I couldn’t see any significant difference between either 6’s or 9’s from the pre-Edge, 1.0 or 2.0 eras. They all looked the same to me. Maybe I’m not seeing something?
  8. That is the correct CCM font that should have been used. This pic shows what #16 should look like; actually it’s Buchberger’s actual mesh 89/90 gamer from the exact same time period. The holes and gaps in the 6 are off too, as well as the relative thicknesses of each twill layer:
  9. If I could upvote this, I would! 🙂 👍
  10. With all respect to you, and this is just my opinion, the numbers are even more inaccurate than the letters font wise, and they were almost certainly not applied by the team to be a game-issue. Even the letters are not the correct Nike font, so it’s probably not an original nameplate anyway. So I guess I don’t see what it is you’re trying to preserve by not changing the numbers. Whether you put Messier, Kurri or Buchberger on it, it’s an “authentic replica,” not a GI/GW, so why not go with the player of choice, if the owner doesn’t want a Buchberger? If I had that jersey, I wouldn’t put him on it.
  11. That same thought occurred to me too, but I remember that the 1997 ASG game worn jerseys, which had to have been manufactured in 1996, had those tags also. So at least we know those tags existed at that time.
  12. Thanks to everyone for the kind comments!
  13. Twin 1980’s Kings game worn pickups! 1984/85 road jersey of HOF’er Steve Shutt, worn during the only season in which he didn’t play for the Canadiens. I remember the 84/85 season quite fondly, as it was the year I really became a Kings fan! 1985/86 Jim Fox home jersey. I don’t know exactly why it’s a big deal to me, but I particularly like these 80’s jerseys that have the Adidas logo on the hem. As is typical of 85/86 jerseys, the original fight strap was cut out and replaced by another which was sewn through one of the back numbers. Both of these jerseys are quite small (about a size 48), as both players were rather small by NHL standards- I can easily fit in these things, so it’s really great to have a few gamers I could actually wear if I wanted to! Happy Thanksgiving to everyone in the US!
  14. Adidas retail Adizero, size 46 ASG over a Kings 2.0 size 46. Adidas sleeves are significantly narrower, but longer than those of the 2.0. Width at pit level is about the same, but at the hem the Adidas flares out a bit more to the sides and is slightly wider there. Adidas is just very slightly longer from collar to hem. Same Adidas 46 over a 2008 ASG 1.0 46. Sleeves are about the same width and length. Adidas width slightly greater at pit and hem levels, and slightly longer as well. Additional pics of Adidas 46 with tape measure: Length: 32” https://flic.kr/p/2hRHLiZ Width at pit level: 21” https://flic.kr/p/2hRGNva Width at hem: 24” https://flic.kr/p/2hREibV Sleeve length from tip to top center of collar: 33” https://flic.kr/p/2hRHMKS
