Just a minor point, but whoever had it customized used the pre-1999 jersey with the orange NHL shield, from when LeCavalier was #8.

Just to be extra picky, the neck tagging with 'Maska Air-Knit' suggests early 90s, and definitely pre '98, Vinny's rookie year.

I'm not sure about the Sweden replicas and the differences between crests. I know that the crests on NHL jerseys were much different up close when Starter made them, so that supports what you've seen too. If I were going to get a current Sweden replica, I'd get it here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/370718952932?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2648 Legit nike replica at a great price.

For replica CCM, mediums fit like a 46. And for Starter mesh 48 should fit right for you if your '04 all star 46 is a good fit. My Starter 48s are almost too small. I'm 5'10" 165 for comparison (pretty close to your size), and I like my jerseys to be a little baggy, but not fit like a tent. I don't really like wearing a hoodie under my jerseys either, which some guys do if a jersey fits too big. Take a look at my collection. My white starter mesh Forsberg and Sakic are both 48s and the name and number fit just fine, nothing running onto the piping. You may have an issue with Starter meshes, though with the As and Cs for captain letters. The crests were sewn on really high which doesn't leave any room for letters. I took my crests off and had them sewn on lower to make room, otherwise the letters would run onto the piping. Just some food for thought.

Ha that is genius, I never thought about that. I will definitely have to move the crests down, no idea how I would do that though, never tried anything like that, but I will do some research. Would DA be willing to do that? I do see some Starter Mesh jerseys in size 48 on eBay, one comes with a nameplate but is listed at $200, the other has no nameplate, but has the "C" logo stitched onto it already, but for half the price. Not sure if I should go for those because I'd much rather get a burgundy one for now, but another thing I was considering was, do you know if DA would allow me to ship from eBay directly to them rather than buying the jersey and having it shipped to my place in Toronto, and then back to DA?

On a side note, does anyone have any input on this jersey please?

I don't know much about Rangers, but I've tried to compare with pictures and it seems maybe the front "Rangers" are stitched too close and the lettering in the back is a bit thick, but realistically I am not sure.

Thanks

That's actually legit, but I wouldn't pay that price for it.

Unfortunately, DA won't remove and re-sew a crest. The good news is that it's pretty easy to do and if you know anyone who is even decent on a sewing machine, it's easy to stitch back down. My wife did both of mine and they look pretty much exactly like the stitching from the factory. Lots of good stuff in the how to guides & jersey basics thread here, too. Don't bother with the Starters that come with factory nameplates (at least not specifically because of the plate). Those plates don't match the curve DA uses so they won't even consider using them. If they did, it wouldn't look right anyway. If you got the one with the C, I'd recommend removing it so DA could put one they made on it just to be sure you have an "on-ice" letter. As for a burgundy, you shouldn't have to wait too long for something to come up, they pop up pretty regularly. Not sure if DA would care, or even if they'd know for that matter that you were having the seller send directly to them. I'd say just do it and ask forgiveness later if they are upset. If you feel like you need to, contact them directly. No harm in asking, right? Their customer jersey contact is Julie Fredericksen. Either email her directly or call and ask for her by name. She'll take care of you and answer your questions. I can't imagine that they'd have a problem with that. I mean, who cares if they sent it or you sent it or someone else sent it? Just make sure they know exactly what you want and have your return address & I'd think you're good to go.

Alright thanks a lot for all the help. I will keep waiting for a jersey for now I think, possibly may pick up the white Starter Avs with the C, but even if I got it, I think I may wait for a Burgundy as well before shipping it off to DA. By the way, I remember reading that you still needed a nameplate for your Burgundy Starter Mesh for Forsberg. I called CoolHockey (in Toronto) today actually, and they said they did carry Starter mesh material for nameplates, but I'm not sure if they would be willing to sell just the material alone.

Wow! I set two personal goals this school year with my gmail. #1) Hit 2,500 unread emails. I accomplished this with 2 weeks to spare before the end of the school year. I'm very proud of myself and show off to anyone who will listen. They seem pretty impressed, too. #2) Hit 5,000 total emails. Unfortunately, I think I'm going to come up just short. I have 2 days of school left and need 58 emails. It's gonna be real close, but I don't think I'll make it. I average anywhere between 15 to 20 per day, so it's gonna be real bitter - especially if it's within less than 10. My students offer to blast my account, but I feel this is cheating and tell them I cannot accept their help & would just erase their false messages. It needs to be real. All of this and I'm only at 2% of my gmail. You have raised the bar, good sir. To a level I may never even sniff. You are my newest hero and the standard to which I shall commit my aspirations.

Nice. Thanks for the tip on the mesh material. Worth following up on, for sure.

Hi,

Long time lurker and somewhat new poster looking for some help.

On eBay I stumbled across this:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/121116440620?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2649#ht_282wt_721

I have never seen this style of the Starter "black" series Devils jersey.

I am used and actually own this jersey that I see all the time:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/321132031152?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2649#ht_86wt_958

My question is the jersey in the first link real? If so, is there any explanation to the different striping? Any help would be greatly appreciated:)

Thanks!

Both are Starter "fashion" jerseys. Starter made off-colored jerseys for pretty much every team and called them "fashion jerseys". None of them were anything that was ever used by an NHL team, just a cash grab to give the casual fan something "cool" and "different" to wear. They're terrible, but they're both real.

Hey thanks for the reply.

I remember when Starter made these for the Devils and other teams as well (I know Colorado for sure and I think Florida and Montreal as well). They are like early versions of the terrible Black Ice and Accelerator jerseys Reebok has now.

Was there a reason for the different striping? I have seen the style in the second link quite a bit at games but never seen the first style until a couple months ago.

Thanks!

Yep dropkick hit it right on the head. They were fashion jerseys made in the late 90's and some teams actually had a few different fashion jerseys.

Here is a pic of him (only able to find a pic of the front, showing the captain's patch):

Looks perfectly accurate for that style jersey from 1996. The Leafs used HUGE numbers and no names on the back.
