It is good or not?

Yeah, I didn’t want to think it was, because I’ve been after one like that for the longest time, but glad I checked in here to confirm my suspicion.

Thanks guys!!

Hate when that happens! You did the right thing, asking here is always best in the face of any doubt.

As someone corrected me years ago, the different colors of Ultrafil are knit together with different color thread, not dyed.

Perhaps that was a poor choice of words on my part, but yes, I did not mean that the colors were applied onto the existing fabric, like in sublimation.  The individual colored threads are woven together into the same piece of fabric.

You were still right about the authenticity (rather the lack thereof) of the jersey.

That's a throwback jersey made in the 2000's, well after the North Stars moved to Dallas.  It's an authentic quality 6100-style jersey, but as far as I know I don't think Dallas ever used those in games.

It may be as close as you will get to the real deal.
Seems over priced for one that was replicated but only a few minor differences from the real deal.

Neck tagging, CCM on hem are about the only differences I see.

If you are looking for one to wear around I'd say it's good, if you are looking for one from 1990-91 this is not it.

Also, the sleeves are a lot wider on the throwback, and the fight strap would be the flat-buttoned one instead of the rounded one.

Thanks LAK74 and Hockey Bob for the great info!  Although it would be great to have a Northstars crested jersey, the price is way too steep.  Especially for a non-game style.  I appreciate the help and the money saved!

Good choice. Back when I dabbled in other teams, I bought one of those for $150. When I gave up other teams, I sold it for $150.

We know what you dabble in. I'm thinking Buffalo Bill in a Rangers jersey!

Also, this " Favorite Team(s):All the teams in the old Norris Division (82-93) minus Tampa Bay" is gold :D

oh, it is gold isn't it. considering that from nov 1985 - jan 1988 i was in the army and stationed with the 3rd ad in west germany. while stationed there, i was able to watch a whole zero nhl games and the only way i was able to keep up the nhl was reading box scores in the stars and stripes (if they decided to print them) or when i got my monthly copy of hockey digest. i ets'd in jan 1988 and was able to start watching nhl games again. so yeah, gold

So, this might be a bit obsessive, but let me know if this would bother you or not.

I bought a KOHO Kings jersey with the thoughts of making it a Luc Robitaille jersey.  He used this style in 2000-01 before playing for the Red Wings in 2001-02.  Well, when I received the jersey, it turned out it was a team issued jersey with the hang tag still on it.  The issue is, it still have the born on date tag on it, and it was made on July 26, 2001.  So this would have been after Luc played for the them and it would make the jersey a 2001-02 season jersey.  I could always do a Ziggy Pallfy Team Issued jersey, or Potvin.  Just curious if this is taking it to another level to craziness.

Thanks!

I’m as picky as they come, but yeah man you crazy! 😜 I would have no issue putting Robitaille on it.

Pull the born-on sticker off.  Problem solved :D

I guess I am the opposite.
I really DO want my stuff to look like a gamer but the impossible details aren't worth sweating.
It's NOT a gamer, In the end, when I sell it - it will still be either "just a team issue" or a retail jersey. I wonder, How much value does having a 100% accurate patch or an accurate born on hang tag really add?

I love that we all geek out over the small details but I imaging those that collect gamers are sitting back and scoffing

It wouldn’t bother me, but there were a few minor tagging differences between the 2 seasons.  Just curious, does your jersey have the single Made in Canada flag/size tag, or separate small size tag and MiC tags?

Just the single tag.

I have to come clean and admit that it did sorta bother me having a born on tag that was 2 years older than a jersey I was trying to replicate.  It is a Sabres with 95' born on tag and I had the SC100 patch on it.  Once I found an original Sabres 25th patch I stripped the SC100 off to make it accurate to the born on tag.  But I like @jsh139 idea on the subject best in hindsight lol.

Thanks.  That proves those flag tags were manufactured prior to 2001/02, but the Kings might not have used those until later in the 2001/02 season.

What’s interesting to me is that some of the 2000/01 Kohos had Koho tags on the back collar, but a CCM tag on the inside, like on this Robitaille:

Well, between the tagging difference and the born on date, I know it sounds a little picky, but I think I am going to go the route of the Palffy 01/02 jersey.  At least I am not getting to the point of only buying jerseys the player actually wore...but I'm close.

 

Hey LAK74 - these numbers were stacked ion 01/02 right?

You gotta do what makes you feel best.  Those twin patches on the 2001/02’s look pretty cool anyway!
