So, I paid my invoice at about 9:30am...and I had it in my hands at 4:45pm. Not too bad.

Talk about cheap. The crest and all the numbers are heat-pressed. Still, an Olympic jersey for $500.00 is a deal; no matter the player. It's even better when there's actually some NOTICEABLE wear on the front!

I was in on one Olympic jersey with a local player connection. However, I was not going to pay for a GI in the $500 range. It seemed like the prices were more clustered together than the WJCs back in January. Nice get with the white, but those blues most be pretty sharp in-person.

Do they have the tracking chips sewn behind the nameplates? My Canada gamer has one

Yes! It's such a big goofy piece of plastic too. When I read 'microchip', I thought...you know...MICROCHIP. Not a mid-90's anti-theft ink tag from the mall. It had to be uncomfortable for them to wear that thing on their neck.

I considered the blue ones but I went with the white to honor the Russia game my friends and I had to go to a Rutgers dump bar at 7am on Saturday to watch. That was probably the drunkest I've ever been before 10am.

Still setting personal records after this long? Impressive. 

I was watching the royal jerseys pretty close, but they all went for more than I was comfortable spending. Bummer. I do like them, even if they're heat pressed Swifts.

I was thinking about going after Welch's blue one to get a matching set but I decided against it at the end. One crappy-looking jersey from a lousy tournament is definitely enough for me. Besides, there's a few things in the gameworn auction that I'm looking at so I'd rather go for those...including something I've NEVER seen before.

It’s pretty uncomfortable wearing on the couch too!

What I find funny about that is that I bought one of the royal replicas at the USA Hockey store in Las Vegas during the Olympics and the USA crest and letters are sewn on.

It seems that all IIHF jerseys, except Canada, have gone that route. I just hope they don't end up going full sublimation to save costs. Does anyone know how long Nike has the IIHF for?
