It is good or not?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

This is what I bought from a seller: 1994-95 Chiasson CCM white game worn jersey.

Now I have the opportunity to byuy this one: 1993-94 Yawney CCM red game worn jersey. What I need to be advised about is the fact there is no NHL hem on the red one compared ot the white one for example. How come ? Is it normal and legit ?

Thanks a lot in advance

It's a recycled set from the late 80's/early 90's. It happened a lot back then. I'd say the presence of the hem stamp and crumply looking numbers makes it legit. Hell, the Chaisson is a perfect example too. 1994-95 was the redesign year for Calgary but that's clearly the older style used for training camp. Teams were cheap back then and didn't want to spend needless cash on more sets of jerseys.

Remember when jerseys were used for more than two games at a time? I vaguely do.

The Yawney might be a recycled 1989/90 (judging from the hem logo), but it looks like the fight strap is the newer one which appeared in 1991/92. It may have been switched out of course, but it's probably not the original strap that came with the jersey. It would be interesting to see the neck tags.

Or someone should co-write the next book.

The Maska Air-Knit tag is consistent with any CCM jersey from the late 80's through the early 90's, but that small size tag did not appear until 1991/92, so that jersey cannot be a recycled 1989/90. It was probably manufactured between 1991-93, which is consistent with the fight strap, but there should have been an NHL shield on the hem. Could be a freak jersey where they just forgot to put it on, but it's not consistent with the normal 1993/94's.

I've seen it before with a few Flames examples, but never any rhyme or reason. One set produced without the shield? Minor league affiliate blanks stolen along the way?

It could be a Salt Lake jersey. However, I've seen those in that era with different colored collars than the parent club so it might not be.

I would venture a guess that this jersey is very likely a legitimate game-worn. Every detail on the jersey appears to be correct for the stated time period (1993/94)- accurate inner hem team stamp, correct neck tagging, 3-layer front crest (available only on team-issued jerseys, not retail authentics)- except for the lack of NHL shield, but that in itself does not automatically negate the possibility that the jersey is gameworn. There are many oddball jerseys (especially back then) with little details which differ from most others from the same time period, but which the teams used anyway in games.

In deciding whether to buy the jersey or not, I would consider who the seller is- just a random eBay member, or perhaps a prominent collector with a good reputation who is well-known in the hobby? Does the seller offer any kind of provenance? Letter of authenticity from a trusted source, any definite photomatches? In the worst case scenario in which you know nothing about the seller and there is no provenance whatsoever, then I suppose it would all depend on how badly you want the jersey and how reasonable the price is. It's not terribly likely that someone would fake a Yawney jersey, so if it's reasonably priced, perhaps it might be worth taking a risk on- after all, as I mentioned before, the jersey does at least appear to be legitimate.

Hi,

I want it for sure ! The seller is jonsstats and sell in ebay more than 200 items (american sports jerseys, cards, etc) per month. Good reputation indeed.

For info, the price is $450 shipping included.

I still have 24h to reflect...

Thanks

Strange, it looks like the auction ended a month and a half ago and was won by someone other than yourself, and for a significantly lower price. I'm not trying to be nosy here, but did the original sale fall through and the seller is trying to sell it to you now at a higher price? Or is the original buyer reselling it to you?

The eBay seller may in fact be a good one (although I've read a few "interesting" comments about him on the internet) but when I mentioned "good reputation," I wasn't really referring to an eBay rating, but rather the seller's reputation specifically in the gameworn jersey community. I'm not saying the seller doesn't know anything about gameworn jerseys, but it looks like he deals mostly in baseball cards/photos/memorabilia, which doesn't automatically qualify someone as an expert in gameworn hockey jerseys. Do as much research as you can on the seller.

Thanks for the research. Indeed, sold but the buyer then did not pay for it.

Also told me he paid $800 for both Chiasson and Yawney jerseys... I believe it, but it seems, like stated about other buyers on other forums, that he is not that experienced about hockey game worn jerseys, and not really making his homeworks before buying and selling some items...

So, I still have the night to think about, but for $450, I will not buy it, with the risk of not being able to sell it then, in case of upgrade.

Thanks again

Avs only wore those jerseys their first season in the league. The jersey is legit but the customization is bad.

Those jerseys are known to run small so if you wear a 52 go for a 54 or 56.

1970 -72 Canucks jersey. not sure on this as it was supposedly back in the early 70s.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/131628956164?_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

For another 20 bucks the team will put your name on it and you can suit up for their next game

is just a replica. not a size 60. the seller just doesnt understand what the GD in sizing is so in their head its a 60...

I doubt it's from the 70's (pretty sure they used Dureen back then not Ultra-Fil) but it still is really cool

Slim!

We need another book!!!!!

I'm new to the discussion here but joined the forum because I need some help. I acquired 5 jerseys and have no idea what they are, if they have any value, if they're real or fake.

The tag on this one says RBK Center Ice Collection Authentic, on the back it says RBK Authentique. It says it's made in Canada and it's a size 50. I've done a number of searches online and can't figure it out myself. This one I posted pictures of has Chara's name on the back, the Stanley cup final 2013 patch on the right chest and the captain C on the left chest.

Let me know if you need more pictures to figure out if it's real/fake, I plan on wearing it proudly when I support the B's!

Thanks in advance.
