  1. Materials change over the years. Types of fight straps change. If you want 70s vintage, it takes looking for specifics that match those years so what you put in a frame is at least close to what you want it to look like. The color of the v-neck differs on Habs jerseys over the years ... if it is a laceup or not differs ... use of name on the back or not. Otherwise, just get an Edge or 6100 and call it a day.
  2. Because people dressed differently then. Look at video from the early years through about the 1960s ... suits, ties, dresses to sporting events. Those days were over by the late 70s and early 80s but it wasn't the anything goes of today.

  4. It can be argued that "an accurately customized 1.0 of a player who only wore 2.0" is not accurate. It comes down to what inaccuracies you are willing to tolerate.
  5. The fight strap attachment, the tagging, the lacing over the NHL shield ....
  6. http://gbcinternetenforcement.net/13-7181 My favorite comment about topnhljerseyscheap
  7. Same thing ... a gamer cut up into pieces then inserted into another object. Some of the jerseys in those wallets were gamers from Meigray.
  8. If you want a jersey to be accurate to what a particular player wore in a specific year, the details matter. Oilers and 2.0 don't go together until this season (maybe last). Most Preds have worn 2.0s for years, except certain players like Erat and O'Brien ... so it matters even as the league migrated from vectors to wordmarks. Even that is not 100% ... a few players wore vectors after the league transferred to the wordmark. The bigger question is are you trying to have accurate jerseys or jerseys that you think are more comfortable?
  9. You should have kicked him in the groin hard enough that he couldn't score against the Preds ... after he signed of course.
  10. shop nhl.com is using Fanatics in Louisville, KY for a lot of their customization. 40-60 hour weeks, no experience necessary for seasonal hires. Explains a lot of the quality control issues.

    http://www.ahlstore.com/clearance/reebok-connecticut-whale-premier-away-jersey-3.html Apparently his research didn't take him to the AHL store clearance section.

    So it's a size Reebok doesn't make with an upside down crest .... that doesn't make it a fake, does it?
  13. woodland MARPAT. As much as I like that teams do things to support the military and veterans' causes, I'm not really a fan of the camo jerseys .... not even the one the wife bid over $700 to win that hangs in my closet.

    When the COA only covers that the jersey is "signed in person" and there is no sig then the buyer deserves the shame that goes with the fake "gamer".

    eBay version 3.0

    The COA on the bogus Vinny states the autograph was done in his presence, it doesn't say a thing about the validity of the jersey itself.

    then after faking the COA, photoshop images, hack Getty and upload them .... instant photomatch.
  17. Check Getty ... use search terms "edmonton oilers smyth" with a range of 1 Oct 2003 - April 2004 .... several pics of Smyth from the 1 Jan 04 game in the alt.

    Just watermark pictures of your junk in the images. People won't use them any more.

    Looks like a MeiGray clearance sold jersey with the inventory tag removed. The writing inside the shield is weird.
  22. There are very reasonably priced gamers out there as the stories here illustrate. Meigray has plenty of preseason shirts for around $200 ... if they are a team or player you want to own may be a different issue. Waiting until their big sales opens up the floodgates of available shirts. Between facebook, the sale listings here and on other forums, and just through connections made over time you can find gamers cheap. Chris (cjerina) knows what my least costly gamer is because he sold it to me. Enjoy the hunt ... just make sure you're hunting things you want to have.
  23. The jersey from the rookie camp that the team forgot ... no pictures of the players in action, no mention during the 15th anniversary, nothing in any of the media guides.
  24. The cheapest QMJHL gamer I've acquired was $75 ... college about $60 ... AHL $120 shipped ... regular season NHL gamer $165 shipped ... International under $130
