  1. It is good or not?

    The Rucinsky is legit. The incorrect spelling was accounted for in the Population Report for that year.
  2. DEALS AND STEALS

    Thanks, HM!!
  3. That confirms something I heard but was not certain about- thanks for that info!
  4. NA World Cup SAP Patch

    I definitely agree with this.

    Same place you bought the jersey: https://ebay.com/itm/2016-WORLD-CUP-HOCKEY-SAP-OFFICIAL-SPONSORSHIP-SHOULDER-PATCH-EMBLEM-/302266552206?_mwBanner=1
  6. Adidas NHL On Ice Jersey

    I doubt the shipping was significant in my case because they were shipped together with other jerseys. If EPS sent you the plates by themselves through UPS, I think it would be pretty expensive- $14 wouldn’t surprise me.
  7. Adidas NHL On Ice Jersey

    In the past I ordered a few nameplates by themselves, and they were OK with it. I’m not sure about the price, but I think it was around $30 or so per finished plate.
  8. I also stripped a white jersey recently and found the areas under the numbers and letters to be brighter white than the surrounding area. It probably wasn’t as noticeable as on yours, but I soaked it in Oxiclean White Revive for around 5 hours, and it helped a decent amount. The results weren’t earth-shattering, and I still can see a very faint outline, but it won’t be noticeable after the new lettering is put on, and it’s definitely better than before the treatment.
  9. eBay version 4.0

    Ah, so the #39 was not the playoff jersey, it was from an exhibition game. I didn’t think he would switch numbers in consecutive playoff games. Thanks!
  10. eBay version 4.0

    Something’s weird here. The GWA gamer listing says it’s Modano’s first jersey, but it’s a #9, supposedly recycled from Dennis Maruk earlier that year. The road playoff game was Modano’s first, then his second game was at home. So Modano switched to #39 for the home game?? And then back to #9 for the next season?
  11. eBay version 4.0

    This one is claimed to be a 1993/94, and it has the screened crest/numbers, but it doesn’t specifically say preseason. The guy played the entire season, so I wouldn’t think they would have given him a preaseason set to use during the regular season. http://www.classicauctions.net/mobile/LotDetail.aspx?inventoryid=107182

    Don’t you hate it when some jerk does that to you?

    The preseason crest was a screened one though, AFAIK. The one on this jersey looks like the regular crest used on the airknits.
  14. Question about Gretzky Nike Oilers jerseys

    I could be wrong about your jersey(s). Apart from the Nike gameworns and the team-issued ones that were relettered with star player names and numbers, there were also quite a few unofficial replicas made much later on, which look a lot like the originals, with respect to both the jersey materials and the lettering kits. I have a replica Kurri, which you can see here: https://flic.kr/p/WcT1Rj https://flic.kr/p/WNfQtT Would love to see more pics of yours, especially closeups of the crest and Nike hem logo.
  15. Question about Gretzky Nike Oilers jerseys

    Thanks for posting the pics. (And sorry if my previous post sounded a bit snarky.) Many of the details I wanted to see were unfortunately not very sharp in the pictures, so I am not at all certain of this, but it’s my impression that this jersey is a replica, and not likely an original team-issued Nike from the 1987/88 season. The stitching outlines on the front crest seem more uniform than normal, and the crest itself does not look as wrinkled as one would usually see on a 1980’s original. There is no Nike size tag in the collar, and no 1987/88 notation written in the neck area, as might normally be expected. 1987/88’s usually had snap fight straps sewn over the loop strap as well. I suppose the next questions would be how you obtained the jersey, and if any claim to authenticity was made by the seller. This is, of course, assuming that you wish to discuss it.
