My Stars load that I recently picked up. Blake's did all except the Hull, which he may have done for the previous owner.

I just have to say I always thought the Stars logo embroidered on the hem opposite the CCM/NHL Shield was one of the most underrated, and coolest features of an NHL jersey back in the CCM days.

I HATE HATE HATE those stupid new patches. They're impossible to sew down. The needle can't get through the material. I don't know how the league does it.

The thing I dislike about rubber patches is long term durability. Think the NHL shield or these types of patches will be flexible and not crack to pieces in 20-30 years? There’s no way they’ll age well compared to a traditional stitched patch

I was just telling this to someone the other day lol. I love that the North Stars started this and that Dallas adopted it when they relocated. Pretty sure they were the only team to do something like this.

I never thought of that and definitely right about traditional patches last longer. I don't see these deteriorating over time though, not like those old 80s Nordiques jerseys did. These patches don't seem cheaply made and are very hard to get off. Plus we live in a time where jersey collectors take great care of their collections. Time will certainly tell though!

I know Bobcat does the correct customization, but the coolest thing about the 50th anniversary jerseys was the embossed pattern on the numbers. Seems like a waste to not have them added.

Still a great Kings set!!

Pretty sure Bobcat said they would only do that for the team, correct?  Kind of SOL.  I don't know if anyone else can do that.

Both Keener and North Star Jerseys can do it.

Thanks! True it was a toss up but I would rather have the most accurate font from bobcat. It was definitely a tough decision to make.

Even the heavier-duty needles don't penetrate?

Have to say, I love those Dallas patches, but that does sound like a potential headache for application as well as future stripping off the patch.

I tried getting the thickest gauge needle I could find and even lubed it up with Sewer's Aide. MLB uses them too now which pisses me off. I tried putting on a Player's Weekend patch onto a Yankees jersey and almost broke the needle in the machine.

I dont think the Stars' 25th patch is sewn.  

Edit: They aren't and neither is the NHL shield

I'm kind of surprised that they still choose not to do it since that season has come and gone.

Maybe they don’t want to spend time on it. I mean, they take like 18 months to customize a jersey, now you want them to emboss the numbers?

Order the jersey now, your Estate receives delivery 5 years after your death.

lol it was in the contract with the league and reebok to my understanding that they wouldn't replicate that specific detail.

Am I seriously the only one who got an order back from Bobcat in a timely manner? I read all of the horror stories about them taking forever and sent off three jerseys to them anyway. I got them back five months later.

I’ve never used them, I’ve just heard the horror stories. 

5 months isn’t bad I guess, slightly longer than EPS. To the extent that waiting 5 months to do a job that takes one day is “a timely manner”, your experience was not bad.

That's not entirely true. I've had 5 or 6 MIC Adidas jerseys and the Winter Classic jerseys DID have the shield sewn down.

MONTHS????? Just go to Keener instead.

Just go to Keener in the first place - done right - done timely and priced right.  Unless it’s something he can’t do, why mess around?

Reason #1...why would I go to Keener rather than the team that did the official customizing? Most of what i do are Devils jerseys, so I go to the source. True, they no longer are, and there was a time in the past that they were not, but for the most part, I go to the source. 

Reason #2...why ship things to Canada and pay extra money to do so?

Reason #3...as discussed in other threads, I have e-mailed Keener about work and never received a response. That doesn't instill confidence, and I don't like to chase people down by phone. 

Reason #4...with all of the above considered, plus the fact that I already own plenty of jerseys, I don't NEED my jerseys back any faster than what EPS provides.

Well, reason 2 is no longer an issue since Keener now has a US address that can be shipped to.

I agree with reason 1, though. I've used Keener before because I don't want to go through a customizer that is exceptionally hard to get a hold of and only takes money orders (Custom Crafted) but when possible I'd prefer to go to the direct source.

When it comes to Kings jerseys, nobody, not even Keener has the exact fonts, so if you want it exact, you need to go to Bobcat no matter how long it takes.  I’m certainly not happy about this, but I’ve been waiting almost 2 years for one of my jerseys to get done, and over a year on 4 others.

Two years??? How is that even possible? Are you sure they didn't lose it?

Here's some Friday night viewing for you, 4 jerseys I got back from Keener earlier this week.

Goldsworthy North Stars 75-76 remake size 56.  This would be his final season with the North Stars and the only season he wore the C.  His number is retired in the Minnesota/Dallas franchise. Added the Rawlings tag and swapped out a 2 lace fight strap to the period specific one pictured below.

47150319651_1f807e6262_k.jpg

Kariya Ducks 96-97 size 52. This would be the first year he got the C, and the only Nike ultrafil jersey in the history of the NHL.  Only 6 teams ever wore Nike jerseys but all of them wore the common Nike flo knit.  Only for 96-97 did the Ducks wear ultrafil, 97-99 was flo knit.

33944330438_ad96be9326_k.jpg

Palffy Pens 2005-06 size 52.  This would be his final season in the NHL.  It's a patched over Koho, which is what he actually wore that season.  Done with the proper kiss-cut customization.

47821634701_8189dfd54b_k.jpg

Casey Worcester Ice Cats 96-97 size 52.  He only played 4 games there that season, but they're such cool jerseys I'm happy to have both home and road in my collection.
