2005 Philadelphia Phantoms Calder Cup Jerseys

Recommended Posts

Ok, so for a very long time, I've wanted one of these Phantoms jerseys.

Recently, I did a bit more research, and these jerseys were made by SP, not Bauer or Reebok. So I e-mailed the company to see if this blank jersey could still be made. They said it can, but I have to order through a retailer, and that the minimum order for custom jerseys like this would be 12.

So, I'm going to try to do what I did with the Gostisbehere Union jersey order, but hopefully with a better end result. I don't have exact pricing yet, but based on other blank SP jerseys that I'm seeing around the interwebs, I think the jerseys themselves will likely be around $40-50 blank (these will be pro-style authentic jerseys).

So for this project to work to the fullest accuracy, we need the following:

- Jerseys from SP (I'm working with a retailer to find out pricing)

- Phantoms crest logos (have not been able to find these online... if anyone has any ideas for these, let me know, they're obviously integral)

- AHL oval patches for below the neckline (haven't found these either)

- AHL circle patches for the back hem (found repro's of these, but not sure if I have sourced 12 yet)

- Wendy's sponsorship patch (I have an e-mail in to Wendy's to see about this)

- Customization (I believe it would've been done by Ruberti's, who we can work with for the whole order, if people want names/numbers)

BEST GUESS ON TOTAL PRICE: $150-200 for a complete, customized 2005 Phantoms purple jersey

Obviously this is all pending price, but I wanted to see what the interest level is. So I'm going to keep this post updated with pricing info, and start an interest list. Feel free to invite others into this order.

Update on the Wendy's patch:

Originally, they had said that everything for the old logo is discontinued but that they could look into getting us the rights to have patches made with the current logo on them. I explained that we were really only interested in the old logo, and if the company they went through originally still had the files, then we would like the rights for those.

Got a response this morning that they have contacted that company, and they still have the logo patch on file. They're looking into if they can be re-made for us and will let us know.

So we may have tracked that down!

Nice bit of news.

You could maybe post this over on the HF Flyers board to try to grab more interest. IIRC there were some members over there that wanted in on the Ghost jersey order but aren't members here...

Good call. I just posted it over there. I remember we had at least a few people from there that were in on the Ghost order.

Emailed their Corporate Sponsorship department.

What can I say? I'm resourceful haha. I also tracked down a Team Ferior patch for my Adirondack Phantoms project.

Spread the word guys... if we don't get at least 12 people interested, then this isn't gonna go forward.

Honestly this is my fear above all the other things that would need to happen for this. I have a gut feeling we won't find 12 people interested

So, we'll see how this comes out. But I'm in contact with an embroidery place that can make the Phantoms logo, but not EXACT like the old ones.

Rather than being a single layer of twill with all of the details/colors being stitching, it would be a multiple layer twill logo (and would not have the fade in the color of the eyes). It sounds like they're going to make a sample and let us decide off of that but it's at least an option (considering before this I had no options for the Phantoms logo).

With only 5 people it may be a moot point :(

Still, i'm interested to see how their test crest turns out

Yea, me too. But yea, I agree.

One possible option if we don't get 12 people.

We may still need to order 12 jerseys, but could sell off the extra blanks (or people could take blanks for random ice hockey practice jerseys or something).

Meaning we would then only order 6 logos or whatever and 12 blank jerseys.

So we would build those jerseys into the cost and all split it, and then I could basically refund people money if we sell them on eBay as blanks or something.

I'm guessing the blank jerseys are going to be around $40 each, so if we're going to have 6 people, basically everyone would pay for 2 blanks.

It really all depends on how the costs are going to add up.

Ok, I think I'm pretty much at a point where it won't matter what this company can do with the logo.

The price for the blank jerseys is going to be $99 per jersey, and that's before the logos, AHL patches, Wendy's patch, or customization.

I'm thinking this is going to be too pricey, since we don't have 12 people interested.
