    The Want List

    Since I seem to be striking out on the Seabrook jersey, does anyone have a blank red authentic Edge 1.0 or 2.0 Blackhawks jersey (not the IndoEdge versions), size 52 available for sale?

    The Want List

    Looking for a red authentic Edge 1.0 Blackhawks jersey - Seabrook, size 52. (Stitched and accurate customization please, not the heat pressed/ironed on stuff). This one is for a gift, so hoping to find one in excellent condition.

    It arrived today v2.0

    Picked this up from World Hockey Jerseys. Light wear, stickmarks on sleeves front and back, small board burn. The Polish jerseys are some of my favorites. Wish I could get a retail version of one of these. I'd hate to rock it at Taste of Polonia or Pierogi Fest and end up dripping beer and kiełbasa on it all day. Those marks probably wouldn't count as gamewear.

    The Want List

    I found two of these sitting in the display case of City Sports Lettering a few weeks back. I asked where they came from and was told they were cleaning out in back and found them. Don't know how many there were originally, but I got the last two. I dropped in again recently and asked if they had found any more old stock patches, as I'm still looking for an authentic Blackhawks WWW Wirtz memorial patch, but nothing old/new had turned up. I'm keeping one (as I'm into patches now too), but I'm hoping to trade the other for the WWW patch. There are a lot of reproductions out there, but I have some references and Murf was kind enough to point me in the right direction as far as the correct size. The repros are bigger and have detail differences. I figure if I had any chance to get the right one, it would be from somone on these boards. I know there were a couple of people here looking for this one. If someone wants to do a simple trade that would be great.

    A jersey from DaNoobie that needed the customization fixed. I take my current Hawks jerseys to City Sports Lettering, but Triple Threat Sports does a great job on older ones like this.

    The feedback thread

    I've had positive dealings with the following members: Buyers MountainKing - jersey HawksFan79 - jerseys (a purchase and a trade) mdwsta - patch All paid promptly and communicated well. Easy to deal with. Sellers DaNoobie - jersey IIHFjerseycollector - jersey Great jerseys and no problems. Smooth transactions. Also picked up an item locally for JustAnothaVictim to ship overseas for him, again with good communication and no problems with payment.

    Thanks Brilliant. Yeah, I really wanted to do up this one with the All Star patch. Plus, its going to be a Belfour. Had to go with either the 91 AS patch or the 92-93 Cup 100th anniversary patch for him, and I personally like the AS better. 1991 was the better year all things considered. Mdwsta4 - have you tried any of the links on the first page of the thread for those patches. I think that an accurate replica of the finals patch is about as impossible to find as an original, but you may have better luck with the NHL 75th patch. Try Murf and Pat, that's where I got the big AS patch. If not, I would be willing to part with the small AS patch I have, as I have no real use for it now.

    The Want List

    Need opinions/advice on the 1991 All Star game patch. I picked up two, one from Patch Collection and one from Murf and Pat. Comparing them to the few close-up examples I could find on the web, the Murf patch (which is almost the exact size of a CD) seems the most correct. The biggest differences are the size of the white border, the hair stitching, the lack of a registered tradmark symbol, the missing forhead detail, and the red feather details (colored in solid white instead of white lines). The PatchCollection patch has all the details, but the patch is much smaller and the font size appears to be too small as well. Does anyone have an original or gamer example of this patch? I know Murf generally has the best when it comes to patches so I was planning on trimming the white border down to about half of what it is now and going with that one.

    Bob Probert dead at 45

    Probert was one of my all-time favorite Blackhawks. What a shame that he died so suddenly, and in front of his family like that.

    It is good or not?

    Thanks guys! I figured it was legit as it has the notorious screened shoulder patches, the NHL shield looks good, and the customization is sewn twill like it should be. But I wasn't sure about what the vector logo should look like on a premier sleeve and neck. Its directly embroidered on this one, and I know that is one of the signs of a fake authentic. I figured I had better run it by the experts before I tried to swap it, in case I had missed something. Thanks again!

    It is good or not?

    Can someone please confirm that this is a genuine Minnesota Wild Rbk Premier jersey? It was given to me by a friend who knows I collect jerseys. It was left by someone at the hotel he works for, and he got it after no one ever came back or called to claim it. Everything looks legit to me, but I've never owned a premier or a Wild jersey before. I have no use for a Wild jersey, and hope to find someone who wants to trade a Blackhawks premier or older replica for it, though the nameplate is twill and would need to be replaced. At least its all stitched so hopefully stripping it wouldn't be too bad. Anyway, I'd like to double check before I post it up for trade.

    xcdude is right. I went to City Sports Lettering this morning to pick up some patches and they put two on for me right away. Its a ziz-zag stitch that looks a bit tighter than the ones on the sleeve numbers. The patches also have a glue backing and I think they pressed it before sewing.

    Man, some really nice Hawks jerseys there guys! Love the old ultrafils. Seeing all that Hawks goodness makes me want to go spend money I don't have right now!

    I'm definitely loving all the new Hawks jerseys I see, but that Canadian Hull jersey also rocks. Lots of great pick-ups guys. JustAnothaVictim, nice work on your Toews - looks sweet! Glad I could help with the kit.

    NHL Team Customizers

    Yes, they do. As their letterhead states, they are the "Official lettering supplier to the Chicago Blackhawks." HawkQuarters/The Blackhawks Store also sends all customization orders to them to be done. CSL doesn't have a website now though. They are not too far from where I live and my family and I get all our current Hawks jerseys done there. Skates94 - Keith would be an awesome choice. Solid player and having the three color leter on the front of the sweater looks sharp.

    Who is your hockey twin?

    Awesome! I got Seabrook, and then Keith. Guess I really was born to be a Blackhawks fan...lol. For the women I got Catherine Ward and then Shannon Szavados.

    Need Some Suggestions on a Blackhawks Jersey

    Tough choices, especially if all of the above isn't an option! I'm a Keith fan and went with a Keith home red last year. If I manage to pick up one of the new thirds, I'll probably go with Hjalmarsson or Versteeg.

    Some nice pick-ups out there. And I really love that Nike team Poland jersey!

    Blackhawks 3rd jersey

    Oooh, yeah. It sure would be. Didn't notice your location at first. I don't think I ever found an e-mail address for them but I'll call them tomorrow to find out if they have one for you.

    Blackhawks 3rd jersey

    City Sports Lettering in Oak Park, IL does the team jerseys. I've always gotten great work and good service. I picked up a loose number there once to have autographed and then put on a jersey later as I didn't have the time to get the jersey done before the upcoming opportunity to get the signature. Give them a call (708) 687-9950.

    Blackhawks 3rd jersey

    I didn't think I'd like the addition of the shoulder patches, but I like the overall look now. I like the lace change too.
  24. Bear

    Would you ever buy a rival team's jersey?

    No, its Blackhawks only for me, as far as the NHL goes. I'd never buy a Wings jersey, not even if it was a Probert.

    Your most expensive jersey...

    The most I've spent on one jersey so far is $275 for an authentic Blackhawks Winter Classic jersey (including customization).
