Looks like a retail sleeve tag on the Otters. I believe a TI would just have the white tag with the codes on it. 

Yeah. Makes sense. I just wasn't sure as this is my first minor league jersey pick up.

It’s a good one, very classic looking style. And that McDavid kid just might be someone someday!!

Maybe, though I’ve almost certainly put the kiss of death on him now.

I received this last week, and tried to sell it because I found a white ProPlayer Brodeur (inaccurate so it’s being re-done) instead. It didn’t sell, and I realized there’s plenty of room in the collection to keep it around.

You mean plenty of room in the jersey. Dayum, that’s almost a nine tiles big ‘un.

This is bit of a culmination day for me. I received one of those rarities that almost never come around except for once in a great while. A USA Wilson durene from the 1976 Canada Cup:

Absolutely gorgeous doesn't even describe it. There isn't a ton of wear but that's because these durene beauties with the amazing chain-stitched crest were worn in the pre-tournament games.  Afterwards, the players complained that they were too heavy and soaked up too much sweat so the team scrapped them and went to an Athletic Knit superfil/ultrafil-like material that had everything screen printed. It cost a good amount but it is absolutely worth every penny.

This dude was small as hell too. The tags inside say Wilson 42 SHORT. I guess it makes sense since he was only 5' 5". One of the few beings out there that make me feel tall.

Very impressive USA jersey, looks like they put a lot work into that one. Those stars really tie the jersey together.

Wow!

also, I’m reminded of a quote by the late Patrick Swayze in Youngblood.

Thank God there's still a sport for middle-sized white boys!

Correct!! My memory was “middle-sized American white boys” though I could easily be mis-remembering.

I’d give you a prize but I’m a “bit short” at the moment.

Was going to be a project jersey, but that option may not work out. So instead I'll just add to my ridiculously fast growing collection of practice jerseys.

Let's keep the CBJ train going...

 

Finally got my hands on an Adidas gamer. I must say it's a hell of a lot better quality than the retail "authentics". Picked this bad boy up through an auction the team/Meigray was holding last weekend. Got it at a surprisingly low price, too, which is a plus! For only being worn in two games, this jersey has some nice wear...

I found this crestless 2015 ASG jersey on eBay and bought it for the impossible to fined Black Blue Jackets Patch and it turned out to be a prototype (see tag). Everything seems to match the game worn jerseys except the Blue Jackets patch is on the wrong shoulder.

Are you sure that's Mike Commodore and not Ogie Ogilthorpe?
