Did not know that about the Crunch. Pretty interesting fact.

 

I'm more interested in the fact that an AHL team wore the actual jerseys of their NHL affiliate? How stupid/cheap is that? They can't even have their own jerseys?

The Crunch did it because they didn't want to debut their uniforms in a preseason game.  The Hamilton Canucks did it because the ownership group was falling apart and nearly folded in the middle of their second season before Vancouver stepped in to prop the team up.  In fact they almost moved to Syracuse before the 1993-94 season, but Howard Dolgon's ownership group wasn't quite ready to take over the team.

Stockton Heat did one game in a Flames jersey, no sign of AHL on there anywhere, not even the Cali and US flags instead of Alberta and Canada

I can understand the preseason games. But if you’re gonna have a team, have a jersey.

Springfield did a Coyotes night with the old Kachina alternates back in the early 2000s. The  Wolfpack have worn Rangers jerseys with Wolfpack screeened over the Rangers lettering in the preseason in the mid 2000s.

Nashville Predators Wade Belak 10/11 set 2 GI.

Was a bit surprised that it was a RBK 1.0 Edge jersey, but I don't mind because 1.0 > 2.0

If anyone wants to see pics of the Oilers team-issued Adidas jersey I just got, let me know. If not, I will be posting pics once I strip it and get Draisaitl on it.

I still like the Indo version I got, but this is higher quality for sure. Indo feels more like a Reebok 1.0 to me.

Eventually I will collect teams other than Oilers. But as I say, I don't mind Indo. I would only collect TI though if it wasn't for the fact they can be hard to find for other teams.

@StayFrosty I post blanks I'm pumped about. You don't have to ask to post pics, it's an open forum and a number of us are bored in the summer off season and just want to see or hear anything about jerseys.

If you want to show us a sweet Adidas MiC, go for it.

Agreed, we’ll basically look at anything right about now.

Cool, thanks for your support. I just was being sort of lazy, and thought no one would be interested until I get the jersey crested with a good, relevant player!

 

This has so far cost me $320 CAD from the time of purchase, to when it got to me (customs fees).

Are you doing the strip yourself? I have done two of these Oilers jerseys, both a white one and an orange one, and they were the two easiest strip jobs I have done to date. The perforated numbers basically just peeled right off after I ripped all the stitches, then a bit of Acetone to remove what little residue there was left behind, and after that I was golden.

Yep I'll strip myself. I've done like 3 or 4 in the past. Also I'll get it crested by Elite Sportswear. They always seem to remove any extra residue for you and also iron out any creases.

Nice score on the Oilers MiC!  Thanks for sharing.

The only Adidas MiC I have seen in person was an Oilers retro from last season with the 40th patch.  Just like KB67 was mentioning, it too was a super easy strip, I was even able to salvage the nameplate.  Good luck with the strip and re-custom.

And 320 CAD is a good amount to be into one, you've done well I'd say.

Not sure, are a lot of you guys willing to collect Adidas Indo jerseys since the MIC jersey is so hard to come by?

Obviously, the Fanatics jersey is out. Total garbage from what I've heard. And the Reebok 2.0's were/are good, but I don't like the collar on them compared to Adidas, and I want what I collect from here on in to be current and modern.

For Oilers, my team, I also really like their current orange jerseys, more than any Reebok home jerseys they've had.

I won’t touch an indo with a ten foot pole. I was able to get my hands on a MIC Stadium Series and AreTnas, so I’m happy enough since the Leafs haven’t changed their style since the Reeboks. 

Ideally, going forward hopefully someone gets an in with Adidas like JB did with Reebok. But who knows how long that could take.

Most of us still shun the Indo, but some people are still collecting them because the MIC are not  available at retail. I’ve found plenty the same way you did, but you have to be willing to strip and re-do. 

I happen to agree about the 2.0, I have definitely come to like the MIC Adidas better. Never did understand what Reebok was trying to accomplish with the collar, it’s like they made a v-neck, then added an extra piece to cut off the V, and the collar kind of stands up in the back.

I won't go for the Indo Adidas as I bought one and promptly returned it. Poor quality, loose threads, bad fit and so on.

I have gotten my hands on 7 MIC Adidas so far and they are about as good as the 2.0's (similar quality) but compared to the Indo Ady's it's night and day.

It's got me a little concerned about the direction of collecting.

I feel it's gonna drive the price way up because the current styles are not availible in the quantities to feed all of our needs - but I also feel it's going to hurt the value of 2.0's and 6100 style because people won't have extra $ to spend on older stuff when they want the latest and greatest.
For the sake of my collection I don't want the older stuff to become boring or lose value but what are ya gonna do...

I hope I'm getting my point across the right way as it's Friday and I'm just trying to chime in beofre I kick off the work day.

 

Enjoy the weekend everybody!

Same.  Just like with edge 2.0’s eventually stock will get out into the market.  I wouldn’t get too excited about JB getting them though unless you’re cool paying $500 for a blank

So, trying to not get too excited about what could be nothing, but. I saw some MiC team stock for this coming season (don’t ask, I can’t tell where/how). Anyways, the team stock came with retail adidas tags in the collar, in addition to the usual TI card at the end of one sleeve. 

Thought it was very odd to see retail adidas tags on team stock.

What was the fight strap stitching like on the MIC team stock with retail tags? Double? or Single?

Any way, I just ordered a Darnell Nurse Adidas Orange TI jersey. When I get it, I'll post pics. But... $530 CAD shipped :-( Will probably owe customs fees, too.

I'm gonna get my white one crested with McDavid in a couple weeks. Also, I will sell my McDavid Indo some time this season, when hopefully it will sell for more than it would now.
