I love the Jim Carey. He was the very definition of a one-hit-wonder but it sure was a hit. I love how Keener researched the jersey itself before customizing it too. He spaced the name out perfectly.

Thanks, it's a new fav in my collection.  Total one hit wonder!

I actually sent Keener the playoff pics, but he does deserve the credit for doing it to a T. I'm very happy with how it turned out.

I stumbled onto some gems in the latest Leland's auction that ended last week. First, a 2003 World Championships Phil Housley:

2v2J6U1k8x2YANR.jpg

There is little to no wear so I'm not really sure if he actually wore it but the sponsor patches and custom job definitely say it was his at one point. This is also evidence that the IIHF started pressing their nameplates rather than sewing them as early as 2003.

Then, an ultra-rare 1986 World Championships Tom Barrasso ADIDAS jersey:

2v2J6U1Dzx2YANR.jpg

Light wear again but it was definitely worn as it has some nice marks on the sleeves. The old Adidas mesh jerseys are nearly impossible to find as they only supplied USA Hockey with stuff from 1985 until 1987. This one may have come out of Tom's personal collection because they had a bunch of his stuff listed. The numbers are all felt but the name is sewn on twill. How great is the extra tall A?

Leland's is apparently renowned for their baseball prowess but I'm a little iffy on their hockey knowledge. They had a white 1996 World Cup Roenick jersey listed as game worn:

Also, a white Leetch from the same tournament with no C and a different nameplate:

Huh? The Leetch addendum says it was worn in the pre-tournament but those didn't have different plates. Hell, I have a blue one from the pre-tourney and the plate is identical. Not to mention some other oddities like a Bryan Trottier 1984 USA that just doesn't add up at all:

Decided it was time to open the piggy bank and add one of these to the collection.

Not a Hawks fan but I’m particularly fond of that style.

Few newbies.

91/92 Robin Bawa. Both have pretty decent wear and sewn in, shoe string fight strap. My favourite of the many Canuck styles.

I have a couple authentics of that style that I keep pristine in my closet, but my one and only premier is also that style. I wear it as a junker, have worn it concerts, music festivals, the grocery store, out to dinner, and many bars and I am always amazed at the amount of compliments I get on it.... I always think man I like this style too, but this is the shittiest jersey I own... 

edit: said premier has now basically become my gf's sweater when we go to games (cuz she thinks Toews is hot), so now I get to be the a-hole bf who has to stick his nose in when some guy tells her how much they like it..... lol...

I feel so fortunate at how many things had to line up for this one... from winning the auction at a very reasonable price, to the jersey being my size, to the numbers being covered up by the player I wanted (due to glue residue)... just so stoked to have this back.

Started like this:

Now looks like this:

There's the tiniest bit of glue residue on one sleeve that didn't get covered, but it's honestly not that noticeable. I now have a home/away set of Flyers Adidas MIC's, and feel super lucky.

the look of something like terror on his face right before that is my favorite part of the video. Scott just annhililates him. as Amonte78 said though, he gets points for going 'round with him again the next time they saw each other.

One of my all time favorites. Really hope they bring these back next season. Have 1.0 and 2.0 versions of it. A favorite in my collection

same here. I have to think that adidas will bring em back if they decide to do 3rd jerseys for each team. they would sell like hotcakes.

I'm missing every Hawks edge 1.0 except the home, but I have every 2.0... I never thought that would have been the case a few years ago.

I’ve contemplated selling it a number of times but always resist. It was my first edge jersey and I do like the xtrafil material

When I got back in to collecting a few years ago, I decided after a while to just pay up for all the Hawks 2.0's I had missed. It was a good call. Favorite part of my collection.

Only thing that isn't stitched on are the shoulder patches. https://imgur.com/a/t59cG Complete night and day difference between that and my Reebok premiers, the premiers are SO heavy it's ridiculous.
