Adidas NHL On Ice Jersey

Recommended Posts

You wanna see the ultimate example of CC sloppiness on a gamer?  This looks like someone took a 3-“layer” A and used a permanent marker to cover up the white strip!

Adding fake stitching (well, real but unnecessary) is super cheesy.

Well, it's also super-cheap which would fit Jeremy Jacobs' M.O.

Arguably, just leaving the sublimated numbers without the stitching would be cheaper, and lighter for that matter.

I appreciate you backing me up here, so I kind of feel like a jerk for asking this, but weren’t the 3-“layer” numbers also just one layer sublimated?  Well, at least for the Edges, and I don’t know how far back that would go.  It seems that when the numbers get damaged from game use, the surface colors get scraped off, and you can see the white twill base underneath all the “layers,” like on this gamer:

Bruins Edge #

Anyone know for sure, and if so, how far back this one-layer construction went?

 

You are still correct LAK - the 3-layer stitch went away sometime before the Edge's came around, and since the Edge 1.0s. I can confirm the numbers and the nameplate are all sublimated with stitching to 'break-up' the layers. 

Savard Away Edge 1.0 prepped to game standards from Custom Crafted - numbers are 3 color sublimated on one layer with gold stitching and white stitching, nameplate is two color, with gold and black stitching.

Yeah - the name plate letters are only supposed to be 2 color (also check out this Mei Grey game worn Backes with the 'A') - and a quick search of every other jersey they have available going back to the first generation 1.0s are all 2 color for the lettering - Would be interesting to learn more about that gamer LAK, when was it used?90990a_lg.jpeg

Zach, thanks for the awesome pics and the confirmation!  

And the crappy A is from a Savard 07/08 1.0 as well!

On the bright side, at least it makes having a Bruins jersey customized easier since there's no special method needed any more. It's just layered.

it looks screen printed on in my opinion

Yeah, I already acknowledged that I was wrong, especially after looking at my JFK gamer. It’s one layer of twill with a separate color printed onto it.

Wow, really? I had no idea, i was just going with what i could see on TV......  so it's just one layer.

But i don't think it's the printing that ruins it, it's the yellow numbers with a white outline, it looks washed out.....there should be a black line in the numbers someway, somehow.

Like the blues use 3 colors in their numbers.  what you guys think?

FYI, EPS says they'll do the Bruins sublimated/stitched style for $85. If you're willing to look past the fact that their font may not be perfect, they'll do the proper Bruins style and your jerseys won't be held hostage by a company that is impossible to get a hold of.

Their Bruins font really doesn’t look very good; that would be enough for me to avoid using them for Boston stuff.

I have to say this thread has been quite interesting and informative lately bringing these Bruins customizations under the microscope.  How long have they been doing the sublimated "layers"? 

I have a 2010 Winter Classic jersey, which I'm pretty sure is a felt customization, but are they actual layers brown on cream or is it just single layer sublimation?  I was planning on sending it to Keener since they have the proper Edge nameplates but I'm not sure if I need to mention anything about the layers or lack thereof?

It's also sublimated felt. I had 2 of the B's yellow sweaters, the first was done by EPS (Bucyk, two layers stitched) because I was dealing with an issue with the owner, and found the EPS customization wasn't exact enough comparing it to what I could find on the game used jerseys, though I'd note their name plate material looks spot on, though the color is a bit off in direct light. The second one I wound up going back to have done at Custom Crafted (Bergeron, sublimated one layer of felt) - and while the customization is spot on (for obvious reasons), the nameplate material is something completely different. The color matches the jersey better, but it's 100% different material than anything else on the sweater.

Wow, thanks for the picks and info Zack! At least I know what I'm working towards with my blank now.  And that CC nameplate is not at all close, looks more like ultrafil.

Ok, now I’m starting to question if I had my three Bruins done correctly by Keener. Does anyone have a late 90s CCM and/or a Koho and/or a Reebok 6100 gamer that they’d be willing to share photos of the customization of? I know that @LAK74 and I had a fair bit of discussion about this back when Keener did my jerseys but all of this discussion has me wondering. All of the photos I have aren’t as clear as what’s been shared here.

A shame adidas isn't selling these. Wonder if they had been available if Nike had gotten the contract instead?

But Nike  take over MLB instead.

Don't think i would buy a jersey though, Nike sure are some f***ing idiots,  hear the latest about the US flag shoes  that craperdick got Nike to pull?

I am not even american and this sh!t makes me puke! Nike is Fuc*** garbage 🤢🤮 ........ 🖕

Being a big baseball guy, I've heard that the Nike setup will be similar to that of the NBA/NHL setup. Fanatics will produce replicas (even referring to a fanatics product as a replica is a disgrace to the word replica) and then Nike will produce authentics. Whether the authentics replicate those of on field or not remains to be seen. Currently for the NBA Nike does sell both the swingman (step up from the Fanatics line - swingmans are comparable to the Adi-Indos) and then the authentics in limited runs.

Needless to say, if Nike does copy the Adidas model with the NHL, I will be sticking with the Majestic stuff.

New to the forum here. Little off topic question...is it impossible to find a place that can customize a jersey to the exact number and letter font sizes worn on the ice?  I’ve customized around 7 or 8 Reebok 2.0 Edge jerseys and notice that the sleeve numbers especially are a bit smaller. And this is even from the official team customizers. Can someone help me out with this?
