  1. It arrived today v. 8.0

    I feel so fortunate at how many things had to line up for this one... from winning the auction at a very reasonable price, to the jersey being my size, to the numbers being covered up by the player I wanted (due to glue residue)... just so stoked to have this back. Started like this: Now looks like this: There's the tiniest bit of glue residue on one sleeve that didn't get covered, but it's honestly not that noticeable. I now have a home/away set of Flyers Adidas MIC's, and feel super lucky.
  2. EPS Spring Sale 2018?

    Aren't you EPS's best customer? Surely they've told you when to send your next box of 20 haha.

    I'll say "clean enough." I honestly didn't worry too much because I used previously stripped numbers to make sure that everything would be covered with the #19, and it all will. But no, all of the glue did not come off. I'll note, I didn't use any chemicals on it though. All I did was hit it with an iron through a t-shirt (I don't seem to get glue off that way all that much though). For the top parts of the 5 that I needed to clean up, I used a towel and rubbed it after hitting it with the iron and was able to get that off that way, but I was worried about damaging the material if I kept going too much.

    I tend to agree, I'm just really reluctant to use it based on some of the previous posts with the Penguins jerseys, and how I've seen the colors run on these jerseys. Kinda don't want to have to wash it too many times.
  5. It arrived today v. 8.0

    So I decided to be the guinea pig for the Flyers jerseys. Stripping a Carnival Lehtera #15 and covering it with a Patrick #19. Really only two nervous areas: - Getting the Carnival patch off - The top corners of each #5, the #9 will cover the rest of it First, I went for the patch... Aside from two really tiny glue spots, that came off really clean. I was worried about damage to the dimples, but they seem fine: The numbers were not as forgiving, and definitely left some glue residue. I've hit this with an iron and a t-shirt, with not much luck. Rubbing the glue after hitting it with the iron through the t-shirt seems to break it down a little bit, and like I said, I'm really only worried about the top corners of the #5, so overall... this is gonna work out ok for me, but I dunno that I'd want to try it again.

    This is giving me such anxiety seeing these pictures. Has anyone stripped a Flyers jersey yet? I know someone (mfitz?) stripped a Devils jersey, which is also Philly Xpress customization... they didn't use much glue right? I know they haven't used much glue on Flyers jerseys in the past. I have a #15 that I'll likely be changing to a #19, so just the top corners of the #5 need to come off SUPER clean, the rest will be covered. And at least it's an orange jersey... definitely won't strip a white one for a long time until someone else goes first.

    This isn't true, at least for the Flyers. There are definitely players wearing 52's this year.

    Shoot... missed out on the sale for the jersey.
  9. It arrived today v. 8.0

    Yea, @cowboys, I wish I bought the orange one too! Just arrived today... so happy with this. Jake Voracek, White Set 1, Game Issued I now have a MIC Adidas Flyers home and away... and I'm honestly shocked I didn't pay out the nose for them.
  10. Adidas NHL On Ice Jersey

    It is so awful. I truly can't imagine how they thought it was going to be better than what they had, even though they clearly needed an update... this isn't it! Side note, @cowboys my Voracek white GI gets here tomorrow, so I'll be able to show you some pics of what you can be expecting with your orange one.

    You originally quoted a post that was talking about JJ Distributing selling Game Issues, it appears that you're searching Meigray though. Those are two different companies. JJ Distributing has the Penguins 2017-18 Game Issues, and yes, there's plenty left. Meigray has Flyers and Devils, and you're correct the only one left is Santini.
  12. Adidas NHL On Ice Jersey

    That was my thinking. I’m guessing that Voracek originally said 54 and then switched to 56 (because he’s the only GI I’ve seen).
  13. Adidas NHL On Ice Jersey

    Nope literally ordered the white one this morning. I have a 54 orange Adidas already from the Carnival and the fit is similar, but a little smaller than the Reebok.

    Someone buy this so I stop myself... http://meigray.com/Voracek__Jakub_br_Orange_Set_1_w__NHL_Centennial_Patch___Game_Issued__GI__br_Philadelphia_Flyers_201-ITEM90984.aspx I already bought the white one, to go with my orange Adidas Flyers Carnival jersey.
  15. The Patch Thread 2.0

    Did these end up getting made? IJ has a sale of 50% off of Vintage jerseys til tomorrow (of course they'll extend it), but that's a good way to get one of these done up correctly.
