  1. How To STRIP A JERSEY 101

    I did it twice. Neither time was successful. I would advise against it if at all possible. There will be scarring on that awful material.
  2. eBay version 4.0

    So then the green one technically IS his first NHL game jersey. As great of a find as it is, I wouldn't consider the Riga game one to be his first NHL jersey as it was not used during league play.

    I don't think he ever wore #39 on the road. Just at home. Here's the one I was thinking of. Neil Wilkinson wore it the next year but it's clearly matched to Modano: http://www.gamewornauctions.net/products/1988_89_Mike_Modano_Minnesota_North_Stars_Game_Worn_Jersey_Rookie_1st_NHL_Game_Photo_Match_Video_Match-8372-0.html Also, the auction for the green jersey was from 2010 (I bid on that auction...clearly I didn't win) while the white #39 was from 2014. It's entirely possible that nobody really knew he had worn a #39 until more recently. I seem to recall it being a pretty big find over on the gwa forums back then.
  4. Team in decline - cheap jersey flood?

    I guess I shouldn't be surprised seeing as how good a start the Pirates are off to!
  5. eBay version 4.0

    EDIT: This guy's on the ball ^^^^^^^ Modano played two games in the 1989 playoffs against St. Louis so his first-ever North Stars jersey was a #39: I'm almost positive the jersey was recycled to another skater the next year too.

    Whoa...look who's back!
  7. Arena Wear for a white liberty rangers jersey?

    Simple solution: Annex Canada. Then we can all party like it's 1866!
  8. It arrived today v. 8.0

    Wait a minute...we have THREE members here from Australia?? That's pretty cool.

    Come on....everybody knows the Hawks were so confident they'd win the Cup in 2010, they added the CHAMPIONS patch to their jerseys DURING the series itself!
  10. It arrived today v. 8.0

    HA!! A Grrrrrrrrowl jersey!! I remember seeing the Titans play them many times back in the day. Tony the Tiger's favorite team too.
  11. Collecting Your Least Favorite Team

    I had a few Canada jerseys many years ago but no longer. It's nothing but USA from here on out.

    Who cares about the feedback? Unless you're continuously picking up negatives to the point where they boot you, what does it mean? I've had several people in the last few years complain about trivial crap. I tell them to shove it. One guy whined about a Yankees 1995 Jeter jersey and said that the Yankees logo and jocktag weren't lined up with the pinstripes so it must have been a fake. I told him to eff off and to take up your complaint with Russell Athletic.

    I stumbled onto some gems in the latest Leland's auction that ended last week. First, a 2003 World Championships Phil Housley: There is little to no wear so I'm not really sure if he actually wore it but the sponsor patches and custom job definitely say it was his at one point. This is also evidence that the IIHF started pressing their nameplates rather than sewing them as early as 2003. Then, an ultra-rare 1986 World Championships Tom Barrasso ADIDAS jersey: Light wear again but it was definitely worn as it has some nice marks on the sleeves. The old Adidas mesh jerseys are nearly impossible to find as they only supplied USA Hockey with stuff from 1985 until 1987. This one may have come out of Tom's personal collection because they had a bunch of his stuff listed. The numbers are all felt but the name is sewn on twill. How great is the extra tall A? Leland's is apparently renowned for their baseball prowess but I'm a little iffy on their hockey knowledge. They had a white 1996 World Cup Roenick jersey listed as game worn: https://lelands.com/bids/bidplace?itemid=85247 Also, a white Leetch from the same tournament with no C and a different nameplate: https://lelands.com/bids/bidplace?itemid=85219 Huh? The Leetch addendum says it was worn in the pre-tournament but those didn't have different plates. Hell, I have a blue one from the pre-tourney and the plate is identical. Not to mention some other oddities like a Bryan Trottier 1984 USA that just doesn't add up at all: https://lelands.com/bids/bidplace?itemid=85305

    Also, who will be the first to get a Scott Foster Blackhawks jersey?? What a kickass story.
