So, after many attempts to fix the bleeding, I still have Yellow Bleeding away from the outline of the “7”. I’ve tried an Oxi Clean Strain Remover Stick, a 50/50 mix of water and bleach, and Acetone, and nothing is taking the yellow out of the jersey. I’m OK with the outline of the numbers, but I just want to get the staining out of the jersey. Any other last minute tips before this goes into the garbage?

On the bright side, the numbers on the arms came off clean....

So, after exhausting all my options, I was never able to get the bleeding to come off the jersey. As a last resort, I sent Keener an email asking if they had any advice for me besides what I had already tried. They said that they would likely have tried all the methods I had tried, and if none of them had worked, that it was not likely to be saved at that point.

 

There is a happy ending to this story though, and one that shows what good guys they are at Keener. They offered to take my jersey in exchange for some custom work on some other jerseys I have ready for customizing, so I am sending in the MIC Penguins jersey to them, and they are going to use it for parts and namebars, and I am sending along with it 3 jerseys that they are customizing for me at no charge in exchange for the Penguins jersey. 

 

I can’t recommend Keener enough, so if you guys want customizing done, I’d definitely send stuff their way, and I know for me, they have earned a customer for life.

Sucks the jersey was ruined, but if you're happy with the outcome, that's all that matters.

How is that Gretzky double CCM tagged.....

 

gameworn?

They definitely sold them. A friend of mine collected Gretzky authentics back in the day, and his were always double tagged. This was in the 90’s and he was buying from River City Sports, not game worn at all.

I hear tell that Keener used to custom embroider the left-side tag for customers, but he stopped a few years ago for fear of copyright issues. So, there’s that, too.

My buddy @4freezy grabbed this initially but kindly sold it to me right away. I've been saying since December that I like this particular style of jersey and it's pretty cool knowing that they wore them in that wild snow game in Orchard Park. It's collectors like 4freezy that restore my faith in the hobby, as it's not all about making a huge profit!

He had at least 5 of them that I can recall, from Edmonton through New York. They MAY not have been blanks, they may have been manufactured, pre-customized Gretzkys, that I cannot recall. But definitely not gamers and not team issued, they were directly from RCS's paper catalog.

Great to read these positive reviews about Keener. It’s no news that EPS do fantastic work, but I just can’t be waiting 5 months for my sweaters. Going to give Keener a go for my next round of sweaters.

wow, would love to know more, and see photos of those jerseys

So if some  perhaps were pre-customized it was CCM who did it.

Haven't uploaded a photo here in a hot minute, but we'll see how this goes. Few authentics I recently had done. 

 

You might want to give that another try

Haven’t spoken to him in like 10 years so I can’t get pictures.

What’s a good contact email for Keener? I’ve tried through their website and I never get any response.
