Help on WHO TO PUT ON THIS!

Yeah. Back then management made a point of acquiring stars whose best days were behind them. I think it had something to do with a misunderstanding of the time-space continuum.

Here's one for 'Hawks fans. I have a pair of '05-'07 Reebok 6100 home jerseys, one will be a Keith rookie but I'm undecided on the other. It's between a Seabrook or Bolland rookie. Bolland's only regular season game that year was a road game but there are pics of him wearing the home red during preseason. So, go with Seabs who played almost a full season or a preseason Bolly? Thanks.

between those two? I'd probably go with Seabs.

Yeah, Seabs will probably make the final cut to go along with the Keith.

Byfuglien was top four but I figured I'd get a vector 2.0 and 2010 Final patch it since I thought it was pretty cool he wore Graham's #33 by then. If I find another 6100 in a 48 I'll probably make it a Big Buff with his #52.

I was always a fan of Bolland, he was a wrecking machine and always seemed to be the dagger to other teams in the post season.

I'm in that same boat with a 05-07 alternate.

I remember when the 6100's were on ebay pretty regularly for multiple teams and then it seemed like they vanished overnight.

The 6100's are definitely drying up, and it even seems the Edge 1.0's & 2.0's are thinning out too. 

Adidas better start pumping REAL jerseys into the market soon or they will be missing an opportunity

You're right on that, Hockey Bob. The 1.0 & 2.0's are disappearing. JB seemed to have an unlimited supply but like the 6100's, all of a sudden his stockpile went away.

There's always hope JB can make a deal with Adidas for those MIC's

I wonder how this will impact the hobby of colelcting :(

 

If game weight jerseys aren't made availible that will KO my ambitions of collecting

If others feel the same the whole hobby could suffer

Maybe I need to have a fire sale before everyone forgets what a good jersey feels like and stops collecting

It has caused me to become much more selective. There was a time where my team would pick up a new player, and I would just run out and get the jersey just to have it. I always knew I could sell it later. Now, I probably can’t find a blank, and resale has been awful. So I try not to go crazy like I used to.

I remember reading somewhere that JB has no interest in carrying MiC Adidas stuff.

JB would kill to carry MIC adidas stuff.  I think you mean they have no interest in carrying the Indonesian made Adidas stuff.

Figured he wouldn’t be able to sustain his business with just his existing stock. Like the comments in the link above mention, the liquidation sale would be epic.

As of right now he has 6,534 listings, of which 4,877 are for Edge 2.0 jerseys.

Most of which are way overpriced compared to what other outlets were/are selling them for.

Am I missing something, or isn't that quote from 2 years ago?  A lot can change in that time.  Didn't it take a while until the Edge 2.0's were available for retail?

We can hope?!

Keep in mind tho, I'm pretty sure some are duplicates.

So he'll have a blank and then also make a listing using that blank for multiple players to be customized as.

Let's say he has the Leafs Home. He'll also use that blank to make a listing for Marner, Matthews, Nylander. Now using one jersey, he has made 4 listings.

Long story short, that 4,900 is inflated. Not sure what the actual amount is.

Last time I talked to JB about three weeks ago he wasn't to confident that a deal with Adidas could be worked out. I did get two MIC '16 WCOH USA's from him so maybe he'll be able to find some outside of Adidas. Adidas is dropping the ball on only selling to the league but like with most big corps we don't merit any special treatment since collectors won't be doing million dollar purchase orders.

I recently pick up these 2 jerseys and need some advice on what to do with them.  I had originally intended to strip them and put on more recognizable players, but now I am having second thoughts.  I don't follow either team, but I am hoping at some point to pick up at least one jersey from each NHL team,.  Plus, I like the green color on the Dallas jersey and the crest on the CBJ one.  

So, should I stand pat with both of these or change out the players?  If I decide to change them out, which players should I put on these?  Both are 2015-16 TIs. Any advice is appreciated.  Thanks for your help!

If your goal is to collect one from each team, and you don’t particularly care, I’d suggest saving that money for something else, and leaving them as is.

I have tried stripping two Dallas Stars in that style.

If it is team issue / game worn I would leave it be.

The glue they used to hold down the letters / numbers does not come off without repreated applications and lots of frustration.
