    It arrived today v. 8.0

    Looks like they added an extra snap and maybe stitched more Velcro to the other side so you could tie the jersey down closer to the player’s body. Would be harder to pull the jersey over the player’s head in a fight, or at least that’s what I would think was the purpose of all this.

    The Patch Thread 2.0

    Yes, it's wrong. Your link is to the icehockeypatches one, and all his older style patches are repros, so it wouldn't be surprising that the size is off.

    I think it looks good, too.

    Nope, the patch in question is from another seller, mpzmpzmpz.

    The eBay seller's patch is actually more off than the repro you posted, haha.

    The 1991 ASG patch wasn't bad at all, but it didn't look original to me, particularly the details in the Native American face.

    A big thanks to everyone for all the nice comments! @mfitz804 Yep, those were the guys who (in my younger days) really made me appreciate hockey. Perhaps surprisingly, I didn’t really get into jersey collecting until around 7-8 years ago. Finding all these old classic jerseys, and lettering them up with long-retired players is helping me to make up for lost time, I guess. 😊

    I would guess that those types of last-minute add-ons may have been done by the equipment managers in the locker room, as opposed to the customizing shop where proper stitching equipment would be available. I have a Penguins gamer with an “A” stitched loosely like that after the original alternate captain suddenly went down with an injury and an A needed to be added quickly to this jersey.

    Customizer's Current Wait Times Thread

    It never fails. Whenever I e-mail or post about a shipping inquiry, the order gets shipped the same day!

    Interesting. Were they displayed in 2 different shows? If so, do you remember when the most recent one was?

    Customizer's Current Wait Times Thread

    Apparently one of my jerseys was on the Keener live show 2 weeks ago, but I still haven’t received a shipping notice yet. Not worried or anything, but seems a bit strange. It’s been 6 weeks now.

    Accuracy/Quality quandary

    30 years from now that 2.0 will be a rare vintage jersey, and someone will probably dig up this thread and post the same question again. 😁
