  1. DEALS AND STEALS

    Man, I wish these Caps jerseys were smaller than size 58. I wonder if EPS did the customization even though they were used for a commercial.
  2. The Patch Thread 2.0

    Do you think obtaining a Scotiabank Patch that they used on the Marlies jersey is possible? Maybe the official customizer of the Marlies team has the patches?
  3. eBay version 4.0

    I was going to use the coupon to purchase a refurbished Playstation Vita but I fell asleep early last night. Ah the joys of having a infant.

    Man, that Marlies jersey is a beauty. It could also make a great Andreas Johnsson jersey too if he makes the Leafs and has an impact as a rookie next season.

    This topic has taken an interesting turn
  6. eBay version 4.0

    I should be checking the Ebay thread more often. Great deal for those that got in on those Avs. MiC jerseys. I would have love to get one to turn into a MacKinnon.
  7. Adidas NHL On Ice Jersey

    That's good to know this ahead of time. I purposely avoided getting a GI Capitals jersey with the 100 patch because it would be one more thing to deal with to recreating a SCF jersey. I'll have to see how bad it is first before I decide on my jersey stripping options. I may have to consider using Bill Henderson to strip my jerseys. Anyone have experience working with him? Last time I had EPS help me strip a jersey, I removed all the stitches first and let them handle removing the numbers and glue and it came out great. The cost for the stripping wasn't so bad either since I had removed all the stitches for them. Anyway, I had email Josh at EPS and he replied: "Red works best but there are no guarantees on strips. We don’t put game jerseys together with the intention of taking them apart later. The game jerseys get pressed in the locker rooms to make them look better for games." So that might explain some of the things we are seeing with EPS customized Caps jerseys.
  8. Question about Gretzky Nike Oilers jerseys

    Indeed. I remember this thread for years ago when I lost out on a Nike Ultrafil replica. I too ended up buying a Keener special because I know I would never be able to afford and actual Oilers Nike from that era. It's the only fake in my collection but I bought through Keener directly and got a decent deal. I still love the jersey and hang it on my jersey wall from time to time. It's still a beautiful jersey

    Indeed. One day I hope we get an explanation from a former employee why we got Indo-Edge and Indo-Zero jerseys instead of the real deal. Until then it is all speculation that cheaper manufacturing cost in Indonesia along with cheaper materials is their way to combat Chinese knockoff jerseys. To me it still doesn't make sense. Those of us that collect the real deal will pay the premium for the actual on-ice-jersey or Jersey Baron would have closed up shop a long time ago. This switch to Adidas and Jersey Baron being frozen out has me really worried that Adidas really doesn't want us to own a MiC jersey unless it is through an auction or team sale. Anyway, I pulled the trigger. I bought a home and away game issued Capitals jerseys through Meigray in size 56! Once my wallet recovers from the initial shock, I'm going to have them stripped and customized to be Stanley Cup finals jerseys. The things I do for my jersey addiction...
  10. Adidas NHL On Ice Jersey

    As far as I know, MiC Adidas jerseys for NHL teams can not be purchased blank directly from Adidas. Only way to even get a MiC authentic NHL Adidas is through Meigray by purchasing a GI/GW jersey or through the actual NHL team if you have a connection. I know some teams sell their left over stock exclusively through Meigray. KB67 and Mfitz804, I'm very envious of your Adidas jerseys. Wow, those are beauties. I wasn't sold on the Adidas jersey until I saw MiC Game Issues. It's a shame they are making us go through extraordinary lengths to get what we always wanted.
  11. Adidas NHL On Ice Jersey

    Thanks guys! I knew I would get great answers here and indeed I'm looking at a white GI to strip and will probably send it to EPS to do the stripping since they customized the jersey originally. I'm thinking of taking my chances with a GI White 56 and stripping the two numbers to replace with one. I think my biggest concern with the 58 is sleeve length, I'm only 5'8" and the 58 jersey is probably intended for someone way over 6 foot. I would have to roll up my sleeves every time I intended to eat anything at a game or restaurant.
  12. Adidas NHL On Ice Jersey

    The largest Edge 2.0 I own is a 56 and the largest jersey I own are a bunch of Authentic Reebok Practice jerseys I picked up at an equipment sale that are all size 58. Comparing the two, they actually look very similar in size except the sleeves on the Practice jerseys being a tad bit thinner. As for me, 56 in the 2.0 is very big on me but not so ridiculously huge that it looks strange. I tried on some Indozero's and the 52 seems to be as small as I can go. Size 50 was very tight at the chest.
  13. Adidas NHL On Ice Jersey

    Question for those of you that own GI MiC Adidas jerseys. How much larger is the size 58 MiC Adidas jersey is to a Edge 2.0 in a size 56 or a size 58 authentic Reebok practice jersey? I am thinking of picking up a MiC GI from Meigray to strip, customize, and wear but I’m worried the a size 58 is going to be way too large. I guess I could go with a size 56, but I worry if I strip off two numbers, not all the adhesive will come off and putting on a single number won’t hide anything that remains. I believe the jerseys I’m looking at were customized by EPS so I’m not sure how clean the numbers would come off.
  14. It arrived today v. 7.0.0.0.0.0.0.1

    Got back from Caps equipment sale and this year they decided to clean out their old stock of team issued Military Day jerseys that they wore several years ago for warm up. Grab two of them, one to customize and one to trade. They even have fight straps sewn in and the material seems heavier than the retail ones they sold. A green Caps practice jersey which they wear on St.Patrick's day so I have plans to customize this also. And finally got the last WC practice jersey in their stock. They sold all but one of them in the session before mine. Would have loved to have a grey one but I'm happy with this Navy one since I probably won't have a chance to buy one of these ever again. I don't like that the Navy W blends in with the jersey but the lettering is felt and the stars are embroidered. So happy I got all these at a huge discount. Other stuff I got for rec league hockey was a pair of brand new WC CCM gloves made for Mike Green, Prostock Eric Fehr and Joel Ward sticks.
  15. Dealing with Jersey Baron

    Has anyone ordered a customized jersey from him? How is the customization when compared to EPS and other lettering places?
