Are you sure about that?  I'm no expert on Premiers, but all the ones I've seen have the vector embroidered directly into the Premier fabric, which is not the same material as the legit Edge vector patch.  You'd literally have to cut a hole in the Premier to remove the vector, which isn't a patch.

Interesting. I’ve been told otherwise. 

Oh well, I’ll probably just buy the patch by itself. It’ll be cheaper that way. 

Also, my latest arrival:

Got it as an OBO $50 plus I had $15 in eBay Bucks. It’s a factory-customized Trent Hunter so it’s going to be stripped. Sadly, it’s another three-layer with all three stitched directly to the jersey.

Oh man, looking at those globs of stitches on the nameplate letters reminds me of a factory-lettered job I just finished 2 weeks ago.  Took forever to cut through all those stitches.  Plus, in addition to each of three layers being individually stitched directly to the jersey, I had to deal with three additional rows of straight stitching on each character!  You can’t just run the seam ripper through those like on zigzag stitches.  Looked like this:

FactoryLettering

Took me around an hour and a half to remove each number!  Worst stripping job I’ve ever had; hope yours isn’t as much trouble!

Most of that around the letters is the leftover paper backing. It's standard zig-zag stitching.

Yeah, but if the thread is really thin like on mine, it's tough to cut through a ball of stitches with threads that thin.  The letter might just cling to the jersey by the corner until you cut through every last thread.  I ended up tearing a couple of small holes in the fabric because of that.  Again, I hope your threads are thicker and easier to remove...

EDIT:  Whoops, I misunderstood what you meant about the paper backing- if that white stuff is paper and not threads, then you'll be fine.  Just ignore what I said above!  ☺️

It's unfortunate that they would stitch the letters through both the nameplate and jersey.  Would have made your task easier if they hadn't done that.  I still hope that mess at the bottom of the T is just paper and not the machine running the threads over and over in the same place.  And it looks like you might possibly have some straight stitching to remove from the nameplate edges as well.

It is paper. The good news is that, while it will be a daunting and time consuming strip job, everything will almost certainly fall right off. The machine-stitched stuff is rarely sealed well.

With all the talk about customization removal, I forgot to give some props for that beautiful Caps jersey!!!   That thing looks to be in amazing shape!

Yep. I've done several of these and they strip cleanly.

1999-2000 Bourque Pro Player size 52 - I needed a Bourque in the collection and knew a rookie would be tough to find and the cost could get a little crazy so I went for a somewhat rare pro player 3rd jersey from Bourque's final season in Boston.  I've owned the Starter version of this jersey and have to say I much prefer the pro player flo knit. Thanks @cowboys for making this available.

Picked this up from the MLSE auction (Sorry for pulling a Price is Right snipe @Phil the Thrill - I outbid him by $1)

Toronto Arenas McElhinney GI - My plan is to make this an Andersen since I don't have any Andersen jerseys yet and as a bonus, Andersen and McElhinney wore the same size (60G)

Alright, so the Isles stripped cleanly. It was a quick removal (relatively speaking) since it wasn't a double digit number. The imprints from the numbers/name/plate are still there but the jersey is ~15 years old so that stuff has been on there for a while. Running it through the wash should help.

Marincin, McElhinney, Soshnikov so far for the boards.  Hyman with Mike’s boy is close enough to consider ours too.  Who else?

Jealous of all you guys. Hopefully they auction off the other periods at some point.

I know for sure Brown kept one of his.  He did an interview that was filmed, I believe, at his parents house and they had it hung up on the wall with a bunch of other Jerseys.  I also know Matthews has his St Pats and Centennial Jerseys so it's safe to assume a lot of, if not all, the players kept one for themselves.

The players usually get to keep the 3rd period jerseys. The NHLPA gets the warmups, NHL Auctions get the 1st, and each team's GW program gets the 2nd.
