    The Patch Thread 2.0

    I’m looking for an original, authentic 2000 patch for the Stars’ green KOHOs worn during the 2000-2001 season. I see a few on eBay. Anyone know which, if any, are original authentics?

    I’m a big fan of doing the jersey players wear in their first season with a team, whether it’s their rookie year or the first year on a new team. That taken into consideration, I was thinking about making it a Turco for his rookie season of 2000-2001. Dallas’ current winningest goaltender and holder of many other franchise records so a pretty prominent player for the Stars in his playing days there.

    Thank you for confirming! I was hesitant because I thought that was a possibility. That’s disappointing. Ah well, I can’t use it then. It was probably one of those made in 2010-2011 that still was released as a 1.0 despite most teams already wearing 2s.

    Hey all, I’d like to know if the following two jerseys are legit. This first one is a Sabres away, which appears to be a 2.0 but I’m not quite sure, as the buyer still lists it as an XL despite the 46 tag: https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F223461950887 Second one is a purchase I made a few weeks ago that I never got a chance to post so I’d just like to double-check its legitimacy with you all. I don’t think there were any issues with it but just to be sure: https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F323720561061

    Thanks again for the feedback to the two of you that I didn’t quote. While we’re on the topic, do you guys find any teams/sizes/brands much more hard-to-find or much more common than others? Value is tough and circumstantial at most times but just curious to know what you have seen through your eBay experiences. I apologize in advance if I’m getting kind of off-topic here so if I need to move it to another thread, let me know.

    I definitely have the urge to jump at it but I’m going to be content and sit for a while. Thanks for the input and the reassurance on the value. I agree with you. I would expect to see him drop the price further soon enough so I’ll keep it on my watch list.

    https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F273686127158 How does this one look? A bit pricey but I like the KOHOs so I might wait until it drops a bit if it checks out. I already contacted the seller and he’s not budging much on the price but I doubt he’s going to get close to what he’s looking for unless there’s something I don’t know about CBJ jerseys of this era.
  9. How about the Ducks? I’d like to do an accurate Bobby Ryan Home rookie but he didn’t wear that jersey until December 16th, 2007 to my knowledge. Did any teams switch over that soon?
  10. I know this is going to be a tough question to answer because all teams may not have switched over around the same time but generally, when did most teams move from 1.0s to 2.0s? I know there are some exceptions like the Oilers but I’ve heard it thrown around here that a lot of teams changed as early as half-way through the 2007-2008 season. It’s so hard to tell from pictures online because it’s not easy to get a good close-up of the material especially if the jersey color is dark. Speaking of the Oilers, can anyone confirm how many seasons they used the 1.0s? I wanted to do a Taylor Hall rookie jersey but I can’t tell from some of his gamer photos if they changed before or after he got into the League. I already own a blank Home 1.0 that I could use.

    That’s about what I was thinking! Might do a Franzen rookie with the No. 39 with it.

    I found this reasonably priced Wings 6100 in my size. Does it check out okay? For the price I think I can make it a good deal. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F302961789373
  13. I was wondering if anyone might know the answer to this question, since some of you, like myself, may collect other forms of hockey memorabilia in addition to jerseys, such as pucks. I collect Official Game Pucks, which up until now I always thought were the actual pucks used in NHL games. These are made by Sher-Wood and are sold in an acrylic puck cube. However, the other day when browsing nhlshop.com, I noticed they labeled a few pucks as “Replica Game Puck” such as this one: https://shop.nhl.com/san-jose-sharks/sherwood-san-jose-sharks-2015-2016-replica-game-puck/t-14374288+p-6780007526442+z-9-25088406 It says “Official Game Puck” so wouldn’t it be what’s used on the ice? Is there such a thing as a replica of an official game puck or does the site just have it labeled incorrectly? Most of the others are all labeled as “Official Game Puck” such as this one: https://shop.nhl.com/nhl-logo-gear/fanatics-authentic-2019-nhl-all-star-game-unsigned-official-game-puck/t-36266349+p-5881225301964+z-9-3559839688 I guess my question is are there really replica and real, authentic Official Game Pucks? Has anyone heard of the replica ones before? How could you tell if it’s a replica or not if both say “Official Game Puck”? Maybe it’s just one of those weird ways the retail stores label it online but two terms would imply they’re different. Usually, replica pucks are those meant for autographs that don’t have the Bettman signature on the back and aren’t sold in cases. Hopefully someone else is a puck collector and has some knowledge of these. I can’t find an answer anywhere online and you can’t tell from the photos. They look identical. Considering people here are sharp with the differences between jerseys, there may be two types of these official pucks that you may know about and I don’t. Inform me if anyone can.

    Legit? https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F254000250675 I don’t own a Ducks away yet and for the price, I think I’ll make an offer if so.

    I was able to nab that Thrashers 1.0. He came down a bit and I was satisfied with the price. Now I just found this one and if it’s legit, I’m seriously considering making an offer for it because I’ve never seen one of these before. It’s a Sabres 2006-2007 alternate. It’s beautiful. Does it look alright? https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F143058184551 I also noticed this seller has a few other Sabres jerseys that he says have shortened sleeves. It doesn’t look like this one does, from what I can tell. If this one checks out and the sleeves haven’t been touched, I really want this one. As a Sabres fan this is probably the best alternate jersey in our history. Many fans want to go to this style full-time today. It really is a classic based on the old look when Buffalo first came into the League.
