    It is good or not?

    Thank you. I ended up contacting the seller to see how much he’d come down but he’s not going to move it for any lower than about $180.00. As far as 1.0s go, this is pretty high, isn’t it? Can anyone give me an idea of how common Thrashers jerseys are in the lower sizes? Still seems to high to me.

    Is this Thrashers 1.0 legit? https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F323589613803 This is the first Thrashers jersey in a size 46 I’ve seen. Since they’re defunct, how rare are Thrashers jerseys these days? This one is pretty overpriced. I don’t want to make an insulting offer but he’d have to come down a decent amount because I don’t think his asking price is close to what it’s worth. Unless I’m wrong and Atlanta jerseys are more sought-after than I think.

    I submitted an offer so hopefully we can make a deal. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F143001644901 How about this Jackets one, fellas? Look okay to you? I only have one Jackets jersey and it’s a CCM and for the price I could scoop this one up and do something with it.

    What would both of you deem as a fair price for the Rangers one? It’s in good condition but it’s used and is the unpopular 1.0 style.

I think they are but just wanted to get confirmation from the experts. As far as I can tell, there are no issues with condition of either of them, either. As a huge Sabres fan, I’d like to grab both and get a Briere Flyers and Drury Rangers done. As for the Flyers, I’m not sure if this was a Home 1.0 or the Alternate when they switched the blacks to that a season or two later. Still, there weren’t any differences, right? I can use it as a 2007-2008 home? As for the Rangers one, the asking price definitely seems too high so I’m going to make an offer. Anyone know how much 1.0s typically go for nowadays? Rangers ones I haven’t seen all that much but they can’t be worth what the seller wants.

    It arrived today v. 8.0

    That's kind of what I was thinking. I'm not sure if it's the way it's supposed to be but being different on each side bothers me. If it's supposed to be that way then I have no problem with it but for some reason I don't think it should. Comparing it to a gamer does me no good because MacKinnon wears a 56 so it's going to obviously be different. If anyone else can open the links and take a look, I'd like some opinions. I really appreciate it.

    Hey everyone. I just got my 2013-2014 MacKinnon Avalanche Home 2.0 back from Denver Athletic. Overall they did an outstanding job: http://s86.photobucket.com/user/joeshilen/media/IMG_0712_zpsrosxa05h.jpg.html?sort=3&o=3 http://s86.photobucket.com/user/joeshilen/media/IMG_0719_zps6eazqz0f.jpg.html?sort=3&o=2 However, I have a slight concern. See the bottom left corner of the nameplate compared to the bottom right corner? The left point touches the blue, while the right point aligns perfectly with the burgundy and doesn't touch the blue below. Now this may have something to do with the size of the jersey (46) but what do you all think? Do you think it needs to be fixed to look the same on both sides? http://s86.photobucket.com/user/joeshilen/media/IMG_0720_zpsdgvhsmw0.jpg.html?sort=3&o=1 http://s86.photobucket.com/user/joeshilen/media/IMG_0721_zpslxkyz0ec.jpg.html?sort=3&o=0 I also got my Eichel jersey back from Action Spot Sports today. They've been the official customizer of both the Sabres and Sharks in recent years; they only do the Sharks now, though. They did a great job on my Eichel. I'll take some pictures when I can. I'm going to send them another Sabres Home in the next week or two to do up as a Reinhart too.

    I just got this one back from CSL yesterday: Reebok 2.0 Size 46 2015-2016 Chicago Blackhawks Home Artemi Panarin http://s86.photobucket.com/user/joeshilen/media/IMG_0644_zpsy6ucck3s.jpg.html?filters[user]=146233675&filters[recent]=1&sort=1&o=3 http://s86.photobucket.com/user/joeshilen/media/IMG_0645_zpsojrdovsb.jpg.html?filters[user]=146233675&filters[recent]=1&sort=1&o=2 Just wondering what you guys think. I noticed the back "7" looks very, very slightly crooked towards the bottom. I haven't been able to find any great pictures to match it but does this look like it should be like this? Maybe it's just me and it's the way the angle was in the picture I took. Also, thanks to @Lumpjaw, I finally found one of these that I've been trying to find for a long time in my size. It's one of my favorite old alternates in the League and I'm not just saying that because I'm a Sabres fan: Reebok 6100 Size 46 2005-2006 Buffalo Sabres Alternate Daniel Briere: http://s86.photobucket.com/user/joeshilen/media/IMG_0646_zps8wgiul7s.jpg.html?filters[user]=146233675&filters[recent]=1&sort=1&o=1 http://s86.photobucket.com/user/joeshilen/media/IMG_0647_zpsdnlpfjpt.jpg.html?filters[user]=146233675&filters[recent]=1&sort=1&o=0 I apologize for not using Flickr but am still able to use Photobucket in this way. Sorry for the links.

    First Time EPS Questions

    Thanks! I'm assuming an EDGE material nameplate was used? They are. I'm sure if I told EPS to do it to on-ice specs they wouldn't need to know much else.

    First Time EPS Questions

    Has anyone gotten a Preds jersey done by EPS? I have a home 2.0 I'd like to send in to be customized as Subban for the 2016-2017 season. I haven't ever gotten a Preds jersey done. How were these customized? Thanks!

    Proper number style question

    I'm about to send my home Avalanche 2.0 to Denver Athletic to be customized as MacKinnon. I want it done for the 2013-2014 season, his rookie year. Besides requesting on-ice specs, anyone able to tell me some details of the specifics I should ask for? I've never gone through DA before so I'd like to be as specific as possible because I don't know how much information they need. Better safe than sorry so I'd rather provide as much as I can.

    NHL Team Customizers

    I did buy the jersey from him but it was about a year ago. He was able to hook me up with a nameplate for about $11.00, so I had no problem finding one. I sent it to CSL and they received it and used it on my order. I'm expecting my jersey back within a few days. I've done a lot of business with JB over the last year or two so I can't say that I know for sure he'll sell his nameplates to just anyone. Even if you don't buy your jersey from him it's worth an email to find out. He does have them though. I'm just surprised CSL has cleaned house of theirs already. They told me if I managed to find some to let them know from who because they'd be interested in buying a bunch more from someone.

    It certainly appears that it's a possibility! Although I wonder what they were doing with the Kings numbers at Arizona's customizer. I actually contacted Artcraft and they said to send it back in and they'd re-do the problem areas and would reimburse for shipping. I'm going to send it back this week, so we'll see how it turns out when it gets back. Third time's hopefully the charm.

    You're right on the crooked part and I know even the gamers aren't going to be flawless. I see what you mean looking at that photo. The "O" and "N" being up a bit too high is probably the most noticeable thing to me. That's what I might need to get fixed.

    At least I know it's not just me being picky! It seems to me the lettering including the hyphen are definitely incorrect. The imprints I can probably get out somehow and there's nothing I can do about the tags, although I was planning on taking them off anyway at some point so it doesn't matter much.
