    How To STRIP A JERSEY 101

    Never thought of that. Maybe I’ll give it a try. It’d be cheaper than a lint shaver and probably just as good. Thanks! “Honey, can I borrow your razor? I need to...umm...clean a jersey.”

    How To STRIP A JERSEY 101

    I swear I saw it mentioned here but can’t seem to find it. Anyway, I have some slight pilling on a few areas of a jersey I just stripped. I was able to clean most of the residue up and it looks pretty good. I plan on customizing it but the number was a “2” and I’m going to be getting “19” so I’m concerned it won’t hide all of the pilling completely, although most will be covered. Would a lint/fuzz shaver work on a jersey to clean up the pilling? I don’t want to damage the material but I’m pretty sure someone mentioned this somewhere.

    It arrived today v. 8.0

    I’m extremely jealous. I’d have bought that just for the patch. I’ve been waiting out hope that a TI or cheaper gamer of a lesser player surfaced just so I could use the original authentic patch for my Kane rookie.

    I’ve been wanting to collect authentic NFL jerseys but the Elites aren’t apparently on-field authentic and they’re made in places like Honduras. To my knowledge the only way to get an actual authentic is buying a gamer. Was this a gamer that was stripped and re-done? It looks great!

    NHL Team Customizers

    Anyone know if Arena Wear was the Rangers’ on-ice customizer for 2007-2008? I just finished a strip of a Rangers 1.0 that I’d like to get customized. I’ve never had a 1.0 done before. Anyone know what specifics I should ask for, including name plate material, assuming Arena Wear is the place to send it to? If it wasn’t Arena Wear, does anyone know who did the Rangers that season?

    How To STRIP A JERSEY 101

    Thanks all! Hopefully the ironing will flatten out the rest. With some luck, if any very little shows after even that, it’ll be covered up anyway.

    And when ironing I want a steamy setting?

    How To STRIP A JERSEY 101

    I skimmed through this thread and tried the acetone suggestion and had overall very good results on my first ever attempt at doing this. I’m just wondering, since some of the imprint is still there albeit pretty feint, would the next thing to finish it be to iron it a little bit? I think I read earlier that it’s fine as long as the jersey is dry. Just checking to see if anyone can confirm it helps and doesn’t ruin the jersey.

    The Patch Thread 2.0

    Ah, that’s disappointing. I’m doing this one as a Kane rookie and wanted that patch but I really don’t care for repros. I guess I can always wait to see if a GI or TI comes up on eBay but I’m sure they’re extremely rare.

    The Patch Thread 2.0

    Does anyone know where I might be able to find an original authentic Blackhawks WWW patch that was worn during the 2007-2008 season? I’m not sure if these were even sold by the team so maybe all that was ever available were replicas or in the rare case taking one off of a GI. Would rather pay for the real thing if they’re actually out there. Anyone know?

    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?

    It is good or not?

    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.

    It is good or not?

    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.

    It is good or not?

    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
