How To STRIP A JERSEY 101

Recommended Posts

I did it twice. Neither time was successful. I would advise against it if at all possible. There will be scarring on that awful material.

Ugh. What I was afraid of.

Stripped my Oilers Jersey this morning, it came out perfect.

Ugh. Some jerseys I just have the worst luck!! This one especially. Only positive I can see is that the numbers were very soft and what was left on the jersey doesn't feel thick and is very flexible. I'm hoping that means it'll all come off a little easier. Still more time than I was hoping to spend on the jersey. If it doesn't come off clean I'm up a creek as this was supposed to be converted into a single digit jersey...

Wow, I’m not even sure what I’m looking at. Screened on?

Is that a Hawks jersey, or one of the Northeastern jerseys you picked up?

Does anybody have any experience stripping one of the CCM “NHL player” stamped authentics. Just won a 2003ish Carolina jersey customized with Cam Ward which he never wore. I’m guessing it was made for the never played 2004-2005 season. Got it for a great price so not entirely worried about it if I can’t. Wondering how bad the glue is.

I’ve stripped a few Kings 6100’s with the NHL Player tagging.  They weren’t the easiest strips, as I recall, with some residue to remove, but nothing that I wasn’t able to successfully clean up.  I’m not sure though, that all teams’ jerseys with the NHL Player tagging were necessarily lettered by the same customizer, so I don’t know if my experiences will mirror yours.  I remember the kits for the Kings were pretty inaccurate, and they used nameplates where they shouldn’t have.  This might actually have been better for me, as I didn’t have to strip individual letters off the back.

I just remembered I also have a white Nike Red Wings as well.  I thought about relettering it so I started to strip off the alt. capt. A, but after trying to peel off one corner I saw there was so much red color bleeding and residue underneath I said  eff it, and decided not to strip it.  This is the only jersey I own that I wanted to strip but gave up on.

I have a white ProPlayer that started that way. I re-did it with the same player and number because it wasn’t accurate (Brodeur).  It came 98% clean.

Worse comes to worse I’ll just leave it. A guy had two CCM Canes NWT, one blank the other the Ward got both for under 100. Harder to find Canes authentics other than Edge and Starters.

Finally got around to trying to clean up the mess I posted earlier on this page. First pass cleaned up a LOT! Still got quite a ways to go including the sleeve numbers, but it's getting there. Not going to deal with the previous name as a nameplate will cover that up. Hands down the biggest strip project I've tackled.
