    Beauty of a Vladdy there! Who did the customization for your RedWingsDownUnder?

    1998 Red Wings Nike question - Playoff Boyer tag

    Which player is it? If it is a Larionov, be cautious. I seem to recall eBay seller "GriffenFood" having Red Wing Nike fakes of Larionov that may even have had the Boyer Set Patch in them.

    That Shattenkirk nameplate is a LONG one to strip. Think it would leave marks if you go with a shorter one?

    Is that Wheeler yours? Looks great. Thanks for the other feedback boys, greatly appreciate everyone's input on stripping adidas gamers.

    Has anyone tried stripping any of the preseason Golden Knights jerseys that MGG offered this summer? Was pondering taking a plunge on one, but given the price point of a MIC Knights gamer, wanted to make as sure as possible it would strip fairly clean before committing

    I have seen AHL retail 2.0s in size 58 FWIW.

    Thanks man. Will the auctions be in-arena only or will they have an online option?

    Nice Leafs pickups boys! So none of the Stadium Series, Centennial Classic, St Pat's or Arenas styles were made available yet then?

    third jerseys are back

    The Flames do the right thing and bring back the classic vintage 80s/early 90s look for their 3rd: https://www.nhl.com/flames/news/flames-announce-2018-19-third-jersey/c-300298876

    IDK, while the 77-80 design you show is indeed primarily navy blue, it really holds no other design element similarities to the 2011 WC. As mentioned, if you look carefully at the details, you can see the inspiration for the 2011 WC from the original 67-68 debut season style. Note the number font being virtually identical (just slightly modernized for the 2011 style), the pants being completely identical and the pin striping pattern at the bottom and sleeves also being an adapted carryover to the 2011 style. Getting back to the original point made, it's likely that Reebok's designers felt navy blue was a "hot" color for the 2010-2011 season and they used it for both the Columbus 3rd as well as the Pens 2011 Winter Classic since it was an element of each team's color palette history.

    Well, the Pens' 2008 Winter Classic was directly based on the 68-69 style (http://www.nhluniforms.com/Penguins/Penguins02.html) but their 2011 Winter Classic style really was one of the first "fauxback" styles that was somewhat based on vintage styles but was also somewhat new in its own right. The Calgary Heritage Classic one that was the burnt yellow and maroon was another fauxback example. I would say the Pens' 2011 WC incorporated more design elements from their original 1967-68 uni (http://www.nhluniforms.com/Penguins/Penguins01.html) including direct lifts of the shell, number font and striping pattern. Just reversed the primary jersey color from the light blue to navy to differentiate from 2008 and use the felt circular crest instead of the diagonal letters.

    The Blue Jackets unveiled the Cannon 3rd at the start of the 2010-2011 season and the Pens Winter Classic style shown above was for the game on New Year's Day 2011, so they are both from the same season. Jackets 3rd was likely worn first, though I did not research the first date it was worn. http://www.nhluniforms.com/BlueJackets/BlueJackets04.html Personally I feel the Cannon 3rd is a significant improvement to the Jacket's standard home look and has a ton of character, especially with the felt crest. I liked the old typeface for the names and numbers because it was so distinctive, but I'll keep an open mind to seeing the home/away font on the new adidas version.

    @HockeyMusic -- great batch of jerseys. Where did you get the Leafs ones done?
  14. SnakeOiler12

    It is good or not?

    I believe the eBay seller that had those in large quantities back in the day was "Griffenfood"

    Mfitz -- have you or anyone else had EPS strip an adidas gamer? Curious to see how the work came out if you have.
