Old (1960s/70s) customizing vs current (material)

Recommended Posts

I have a Detroit Red Wings jersey made by Sandow and it's one of those that seem more of a sweater than a jersey. Wanting to get a #9 on the back and have it look the part. I don't know how to go about that.

If I take it to a regular retailer or sports embroidery place and they place a current-style #9 on it, is it odd looking?

I want the jersey/sweater to look as true to era as much as possible.

Thanks

The logo in this sweater says "Olympic". Maybe there was an "Olympic Sports" in Detroit in the 60's and 70's. Problem is, these places often go out of business or get bought out by larger entities, and the lettering sets often disappear with the business. You could call East Side or Sports Haven to ask if they could replicate the number font from the era, but it's doubtful that they'd get it 100%. As the saying goes around this forum, the only way to get it 100% is to have the original supplier do it. And if the supplier is long gone, your chances probably are too.

Okay thanks. Appreciate it. Figured my odds weren't too good. I may just take one of my older stitched jerseys in with me and check a couple places, see what they can do I guess.

Thanks
