It is good or not?

Just curious if this is taking it to another level to craziness.

Thanks!

Given that there was no discernible difference between the 2000-01 and 2001-02 jerseys, yes.

Couple questions: did the 97-98 LA Kings jerseys have nameplates or not?  And what is the Starter material called?   It's not airknit, it's almost like ultrafil but softer.  Does it have a name?

If it's like the Hurricanes and Whalers, I believe it's called Flo-Knit.

I thought flo-knit is like the pro player, which is somewhat similar to airknit.  This is like soft and spongy ultrafil like material.

Flo-Knit is Nike/SP material. Maybe it’s called StarKnit? I’ve seen that thrown around on here.

Yeah that's sorta what I had in mind.  We'll see if someone can confirm.

Per my other question, on nhluniforms it doesn't look like the kings use nameplates in 97-98... or maybe ever since I know my 2003 doesn't use a nameplate either.

Now I remember why for years I didn't collect past '95-'96. Anything other than Ultrafil and Air-Knit and it's gets too complicated for me. lol.

Doesn’t look like they used nameplates in 1997-98. Also, the material looks more like air knit (or star knit, whatever) than ultrafil.

I’ll let @LAK74 confirm, tho.

Ok, Kings must pretty well always be without nameplates.  We let LAK74 confirm, but my guess is star-knit.  I've got 2 of these and they maybe look more like airknit but it seems more like a solid non-perforated material like ultrafil is. 

Thanks for your input fellas!

Starter used to supply namebars with jerseys back in the day. The fabric was unique to Starter making it difficult for companies to customize them correctly. It was nice that they included the material but obviously makes for a b**ch to customize them now. If I buy a starter jersey today I only do so if it comes with the name bar, is already correctly customized, or I’m okay leaving it blank

Makes good sense, I've been pretty lucky with the 3 Starters I own.  One is a Canadiens and so it's ultrafil, another one came with the nameplate material and this most recent one I picked up is a Kings so that's why I was asking about whether or not they used nameplates. Seems I sorta lucked out in that you don't need the matching material since they never used nameplates.  But I agree with your line of thinking on Starters in general.

Late to the party here, but Kings jerseys did not use nameplates in 97/98.  The only Kings jerseys in 2003 that used nameplates were the vintage purple and gold ones.

And now I'm very relieved that the only Starter that I have is a Rangers and won't need a nameplate.

I can tell you already this one is NOT real good... apparently the Stars had a jersey game ready for 16 year old undrafted phenom Val Nichushkin in 2011-12.  Even has meigray tags!

Nevermind the 20th Anniversary patch worn in 2012-13... but the MeiGray tag says worn in 2011-12. I'm in the kind of mood tonight where I decided to ask some questions to the seller. Wonder if I get a response lol.

I think I got duped. I know edges in and out. Bought this Starter blank Liberty Mesh. Came in a plastic Starter bag  That had some Chinese Indonesia writing new with hang tags on the neck. Has Asian writing in the fabric care tag. Crest looks great fight strap is a starter. It’s the cleanest fake as far and sewing I’ve ever seen

Looks good to me, I have never seen a fake jersey get the fight strap correct.  Could be a authentic retail that was just sent to Asia to sell?  Looks just like the one that I have.

Ok I’m worried as hell about the Chinese writing. If It’s fake, it’s immaculate compared to most. The sewing worked is better than some adidas if seen . This is the only mesh I own so I have nothing to compare it too.

On the wash tag it’s not Chinese, it’s Japanese.  It doesn’t look like a tag that belongs on the jersey.  It looks perfectly legit otherwise.

This is what I sent...

"I'm curious... the MeiGray tag says game WORN in 2011-12. You're advertising this jersey as a game issued jersey. The Stars wore the 20th anniversary patch in 2012-13, so how can this jersey be worn or issued for 2011-12? Valeri Nichushkin was drafted in 2013 and played his rookie season in 2013-14 when the Stars switched to their current green and white uniforms. Nichushkin never played for the Stars when this black jersey was their home uniform, so how could this be an issued jersey for him?"

...No response yet. I don't expect one lol.
