    The Patch Thread 2.0

    Anyone have an authentic 2003 All-Star Patch used by the Florida Panthers? Here's how they look:
  6. I have developed a process to remove autographs from jersey, and I have had some really good success with it. I also have use this method to remove puck marks on jerseys as well. What you will need: Amodex - works really well to get the Sharpie to release from the jersey Clorox Bleach Pen (Only on a White Jersey - it will ruin color jerseys!) Acetone - Needed to move the remaining residue from the jersey Towel Rag (I used old white undershirts) Here is how the jersey looked before I started to work on it. This is an Ultrafil Hawks jersey and my guess is the autograph is from the early 90's so it has been set in the jersey for a long time. Not sure who the autograph is, and I guess it doesn't matter as I personally am not a big fan of autographs. This jersey is in mint condition so I want to get this removed for customization. When getting started, you need to use the towel between the jersey - the Amodex will activate the Sharpie and will bleed through the jersey. The towel will catch this. Fold the towel at least a couple times. I have had the Sharpie good through the towel when I did not fold it once. The couple of layers will make sure you don't have to repeat the process on the other side. Use your fingernail to dig the gel into the Sharpie. This is time consuming and is a slow process. Use your rag to remove the marker as it comes off. Once I go over the entire Autograph and remove a good amount of the marker, I will flip the jersey inside out, and repeat the process. Since this is a white jersey, next I use the Clorox Bleach Pen. Again, this is only for White jersey and make sure you avoid any color areas on the jersey. If you get this on the color part of the jersey, it will bleach that area and you will ruin the jersey. I basically do the same process as before using your fingernail to get into all the areas the autograph is on. If this was a color jersey, I would just continue with the Amodex. Once I get a good amount of the jersey off, I go to the trusty Acetone to remove any remaining residue. For those that use Acetone to remove poor customization, it is the same basic idea. I would have probably use more Acetone than I did, but I ran out - on to the hardware store to get more. At this point, I use my typical cleaning process for any jersey used I get/needs to be cleaned Soak in Oxyclean Wash with light amount of detergent and Oxyclean on Delicate Cycle, cold wash/cold rinse, lowest spin cycle, hang to dry Here is the final result: As you can see, there is still a very faint indication, but much better than before. And if I hadn't run out of Acetone, it would have been perfect. In this case, whatever is left over is going to be covered by a nameplate, so I am happy with the result. As I mention, this also work on a puck marks that I tried it on. Here is a jersey that I used it on - before from The Dude before I got the jersey from him, the second picture the end result.

    It arrived today v. 8.0

    Picked this one up from The_Dude_Abides. It had a big puck mark on the right side of the jersey (which of course The Dude described in perfect detail, because... he's The Dude!). I figured I would see what I could do to restore the jersey, and after a little work, added the 75th patch, reinforced the nameplate, and here is how the jerseys turned out: 1991-92 Gary Leeman Toronto Maple Leafs Home Jersey I always wanted to get this style of jersey, even though I didn't really need a third Maple Leafs jersey. But it is cool to have this style jersey that always seems really hard to find. The jersey is pretty faded and will probably quite be 100%, but I would say it still pretty nice. Another big thanks to The Dude for just being a all around great collector.

    It arrived today v. 8.0

    I finally got this one done, just in time for tonight's game (even though I don't want either team to win) 1989-90 Cam Neely "Ultrafil Special" Boston Bruins Away Jersey Size 54 For those that haven't heard the story directly from the ultra famous Chris Delorme's book: The History of the Hockey Jersey 1983-1993 The Cam Neely Exception "As the story goes - after the Bruins switched to Air Knit in '87-88, Neely got tangled up when his jersey tore during a fight, limiting his ability to defend himself. Following the incident, Neely insisted on wearing Ultrafil knit jerseys moving forward, and the Bruins equipment staff would often recycle older jersey, or convert minor league affiliate stock into Bruins jerseys." I also received this jersey too: 2008-09 Chicago Blackhawks Winter Classic Jersey 2.0 Edge Size 56 - This will become a Patrick Sharp with 'A'

    Game Issued vs. Authentic Jerseys

    I did a quick check and didn't see a topic directly about this, but I know it has been talked about. I just wanted to see everyone general opinion between the two in a general value side of things. Would a jersey that was produced by the team for use for a player be more collectible/valuable then a standard authentic jersey? I would assume if it was the exact same player, the answer would be yes. But what if it was a game issued jersey for a fringe NHLer in comparison to a star player authentic? As a Hawks fan, I am just use this as an example; these are not actual jerseys which I have or could obtain: a game issued Carl Dahlstrom Game Issued jersey vs. a Patrick Kane Authentic Jersey. Would there be a difference if the jersey was from a specialty game (Winter Classic/Stadium Series/Stanley Cup)? Or is the general consensus an issued jersey basically the same an an authentic jersey until it is actually used in a game.

    Nameplates Needed

    I just received this nameplate in the mail: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Dallas-Stars-Team-Issued-CCM-Jersey-Namebar/254194670370?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649 I only spent $1.99 total on it. The picture isn't the best and it says CCM in the title so I was hoping it would be a nameplate to go with this jersey: As it turns out, the nameplate would go with this style of jersey of the Texas Stars: Nameplate has been claimed.
