You can pre-order them on MeiGray right now, that is likely going to be your only opportunity at one......

Yeah I already went through their site and checked out what's available for preorder.....most of them are out of my price range, and the one that I have my eye on is a size 58, which is way too big for me.

In any case, if one pops up somewhere (even a blank TI/MIC) please keep me in mind! Much appreciated

Don't forget to look for Game Issued ones you can strip.  You might get lucky and find a cheap one.

That'd also be ideal, but the cheapest third listed on meigray is $495. I'll probably have to hold out until after the season or if there's a game day auction (which is how I got ahold of a Matt Calvert gamer for quite cheap last season :) )

Two part question. Can anyone confirm or clarify that the shoulder patches of the Adidas retail are made of different material then the Reebok Edge authentics? Is this one of the new weight reducing tactics?

If anyone remembers my question about the Ottawa patches, I got my hands on the Canes third and the patches are made of the same thin flexible fabric like material as the Ottawa Indo adidas. They are not the same patches as Canadian made Reebok’s but neither are they the same as the Reebok Premiers.

Second part of the question is, does the shoulder patch material differ from retail and Canadian made adidas? Is this just something on some retail jerseys.

Yes and No depending on the team.  The Adidas authentics use the same exact patch found on the MIC per team. So if the team uses a woven patch like Vegas (the new lighter weight patches) they get that. if the team uses a traditional twill & embroidered patch like the Stars or Hawks, they get that. Same goes for chest logos, same exact patch. Teams who carried forward the same patch execution from the Reebok days will be the same as Edge MIC and Indos.

Same cresting and patches are used on MIC and retail. See above.

Your examples are two teams who opted to go the go with the lighter weight woven patches. Reebok Premiers were all screenprinted twill.

Excellent! Thanks for the response. Not a big fan of the thinner patches. Feels pretty cheap to me

It's a double edge sword with the woven patches. They actually cost more to develop and produce better results in clarity for fine detail like typography

but they don't have the weight and perceived value that a twill & embroidered patch does.
