Just in time for the season opener! A little birthday present to myself. 1995-96 game worn Eric Desjardins home jersey with hand-sewn "A". This jersey was worn by Rico I am guessing in the second-half of the season. When Craig MacTavish was traded to the St. Louis Blues on 3/15/96, Eric was promoted to Alternate Captain. It's very possible that this was one of the first jerseys he wore with the "A". Has lots of nice marks/burns and a big repair on each sleeve. Photomatched to the black mark between the 3 and 7 on the left sleeve. Exciting!

Now THAT is hand sewed...by someone who didn’t know how to sew. I find details like that so interesting.

Me too. I’ve seen two other gamers with a “C” sewn on like that. Both Brind’Amours. When filling in as Captain for Lindros.

I would guess that those types of last-minute add-ons may have been done by the equipment managers in the locker room, as opposed to the customizing shop where proper stitching equipment would be available.  I have a Penguins gamer with an “A” stitched loosely like that after the original alternate captain suddenly went down with an injury and an A needed to be added quickly to this jersey.

It would happen more often than you'd think. I had a white Oilers Doug Weight jersey that had the A hand stitched on. I think at least three of my Titans jerseys have hand stitched letters too. Hell, the Kings used velcro letters in the late 80's.

Yep, that’s exactly what I was thinking. Probably added in the locker room.

On last year's Devils set 1 gamers, PX only glued/heat pressed the NHL100 patch down on the sleeve.  The equipment managers then had the patches sewn down.  While it doesn't look like a hand sewn job, it is definitely a different job than PX.

Caved and picked up two more Dallas Stars MIC's last night at the game.

Game worn Radek Faksa from Jere lehtinen's number retirement night. Instead of sewing a gamer tag to the inside hem they attached a paper tag. Apparently the reason behind this was these were taken straight from the players, not washed and immediately tagged. Definitely smells...

The other is a preseason MIC from last year issued to Justin Dowling. Still has the tags on it. Probably will be a Radulov soon.

Those patches rule.  Bonus that the 100th patch looks like it was designed just for Dallas.

Definitely. The 25th chrome and the 100th really compliment each other.

This arrived in the mail this morning: a 1991-92 Probert TBTC w/ the fightstrap signed by Probie himself. Long-term the back will need to be stripped and re-customized, but for today I’m going to enjoy having this in my collection 😀

Probert did wear the A on a TBTC. The customisation is incorrect on this but the current owner is aware.

Devils 2003 CCM Airknit goalie cut. Perfect for a Corey Schwab.

Not. 

Many thanks to @QueenAnnesRevenge for making it available on eBay, where I bid not knowing who the seller was.

Continuing on with Goalie Cuts, I got my first one today.  I had my best turn around time with Keener.  Sent my order Sept.17 got it back today.

2015-16 Saros Preds 58G - Juuse wore #1 for his first game in 2015-16, so I will add the All-Star patch to it at some point.  Now he of course wears #74.  It was the last one JB had so I decided to nab one. I'm willing to bet all others JB sold are Rinne's.

1991-92 Niedermayer Devils 52 - look so much better in person, the photos don't do justice to the green trim.

2002 Canada Olympic Lemieux 52 - this completes a mini collection of Olympic jerseys for me.  I now have the 3 jerseys Canada won gold in since the NHL has been in the Olympics.  2002 White, 2010 White and 2014 Red. Thanks to TheDude for making this one available.

1996-97 Worcester Ice Cats Casey 56 - he played all of 4 games there that season.  95-96 the team wore CCM but did the wildwing style kits.  96-97 the team switched to Bauer with the wildwing kits. 97-98 the team still used Bauer but switched the fonts.  So by chance I was lucky to find the right jersey and it worked to do it with the cool font in the name of one cool cat! This basically marked the end of his career as he'd go on to play one more season in the IHL.  The jersey has a lot going for it, between the fonts, the glitter and glacier twill and who doesn't love an old ultrafil. It was a fun project to research and Keener nailed it.

Thanks! I've been wanting one of those Devils Xmas trees for a while.  Thanks to @True North Hockey for selling it to me. 

I really wish I could find someone to do the custom crafted logo on the left hem.

Holy crap!!! That Ice Cats jersey is easily the coolest thing I've seen in months! The twill detail is incredible.

Thanks, yeah it's not one you see everyday, I took a chance on a purchase out of Thailand without tracking and it turned up a gem.  I knew Keener would do a good job on it. 

There are 2 ways the claw marks on the numbers were done in 96-97.  I thought I was getting the grouped together style but it turned out Keener did them the way he did.  And the pictures I've seen of them done the way mine is done were on jerseys that also have the mini Bauer logo on the front left chest so it's probably accurate to what he would have wore.

Here's the 'grouped' together claw pattern:
