Sorry if this has been asked before, or if this isn't the right thread to ask, but I guess I might as well ask. I figured this season would be the one where I finally buy a jersey- the question is, where should I look? I've never gone shopping for sports clothing that wasn't a cheap Yankees T-shirt or something :laugh:. I know "authentic" or whatever jerseys are really expensive- where can I look to get cheaper "fake" ones?

Thanks for the help in advance.

You know I am not sure now if they are no just Blems with wrong name. The jerseys are all double Stitched and really well made and seems like they are legit with a spelling error. Either way for 20.00 bucks it is worth having the named changed

They have a fight strap?

If you want fake ones it's pretty easy. I mean for $20 or so you have virtually unlimited choices. Just go back and read some of the previous pages in this thread...you'll find quite a few. Personally you'll never find me wearing one...but to each his own. If you ever decide to get an authentic check out sportsk or rivercitysports. Or if you check ebay often you can find great deals as well. Good luck.

How much do authentics usually run? Last I heard it was above 200- ridiculous. If it's 100-200, i could probably afford it.

I'd take one. Do you come into brooklyn/nyc at all, or would you ship it? If you come to nyc or bk I can meet up for it, but I'm fine with shipping. Either way

Edit: actually, what size are they again?
Edit again: depending on the size I might take up to 3 of em

I would def take a 52 and. 54. I may take another but not sure about 52 or 54 for the third. Save one of each though. When are you in the city next?

Edit: most likely I would take 2 52s and 1 54. if you've got that many left. Definitely save one of each though

Hey guys.
Got a couple jerseys I'm looking to move to make another purchase. I have a Blue vintage 03/04 game worn now so I'm looking to sell the "replica" version I own.

Blue Vintage replica jersey similar to the ones the team wore in 2003/2004. Like new, never worn tag says "jumbo". This is for the big and tall gentleman or if you are a goalie looking for a nice shirt. It is 31" pit to pit and 38" top to bottom. $60 shipping included within USA.

Mod's If this is inappropriate for some reason LMK and I will correct the post.

PM me if interested. Thanks

I only got 1 Game-Worn. Its a Pre-Season-Gamer of Garett Bembridge of 00/01. Costs me arround 175 €. He ended in Hartford and played there only 7 Games. Bembridge came to Crimmitschau and played for us here in Germany in 04/05 and also this upcoming season. I got this Jersey from a buddy whos a good friend of him. Garett was so friendly and signed the Fightstrap for me :) Anyone remember him?

Thats a pretty cool story behind the preseason jersey. Never heard of the player.

Good luck getting a leetch jersey they are like $5,000us and up.

I have a Ryan Callahan white gamer from 09/10. it's considered a set2 which was worn from Dec 17th - March 3rd. There is one blue set3 left on the meigray.com site although I see your looking for the white.

That can be the remnants of a Puck too. You're sure it's a stick slash?

x BEUKEBOOM x
09-07-2010, 07:38 PM
it stretches across the E R & G and a small mark above the N. Kind of hard to be a puck mark that large. I know to you it looks like a shadow, but having the jersey in my closet I can tell you it's gotta be a slash mark. It's roughly 12" long and widens and narrows in spots as well as lightens and darkens from top to bottom. Who knows for sure, could be black from a skate in a goal pileup.

My camera aint the best, 10mp fujifilm, so lighting is usually a prob for hi res photo's

The mark at the bottom left hand side of the hem is deffinatly puck, looks like a deflection in front of the crease, would be my guess.

There are slash marks all over the shoulders and forarms and a board burn with red board paint under the left forarm.

They could very well be puck marks i'm no expert. I wouldnt think puck marks would be any bigger then a smudge though, like the bottom hem pic. Some of the bigger ones are all squigly and black stick tape comes off onto equipment easily.

Thx Man :) Tbh Im a bit jealous about your Cally-Gamer :P Its just the jersey I want to buy.
Ill up better pics of mine when Im back @ home on friday.
What did you paid for it?

Im also looking for a #15 Grachev Brampton Jersey, which hasnt to be a game worn. Any 1 got an idea where i can get it? So hard to find :(

x BEUKEBOOM x
09-08-2010, 07:27 AM
Brampton had a team auction last fall with Grachev & Duchene gamers. The Grach went for a little over $500. As far as non-gamers, from time to time I see blanks on ebay but you have to be dilligent in your search as they are rare. The edge style can be bought on the brampton web site but I'm sure Grachev wore the older style.

Callys, gamers go for $750 on meigray.com who are the only soarce for them. They are a great company, I have ordered a few jerseys from them and they package great and are VERY fast to deliver. It's a new season so you get a chance at 1 of the 3 white one's from this year when they release them on the site. They allow pre-orders too, but you risk the chance that the player gets hurt and then not much abuse on the jersey by the time you get it. But on the other hand it is fun pre-ordering and watching a game saying to yourself "Thats my jersey" and looking at after game pics trying to find new marks and repairs. It's like christmas every day for a few months till you get it in the mail after the team switches sets.

Thank you for the compliments.

Jersey white XL with #15 Grachev Lettering cost 179$ = 145€. Thats ok :) Ill send them an E-Mail if they will ship it to Europe.

I also will save some $$ next year to buy a Cally-Gamer :) Cool read what you wrote about pre-ordering ;)

Rivercitysports got only the green ones in M/L and theres no possibility to customize it (Number&Name).

Rangers will wear a navy blue third jersey, with NEW YORK emblazoned in red, diagonal text down the front. However, it's not the typeface we're used to seeing on the Rangers. It's more of a "retro" font, if you will — straight (not italic) with a vintage white stroke on the letters.

In addition, there is a thick red stripe that wraps around the sleeves and bottom of the jersey, bordered in thinner vintage white stripes. The collar is vintage white with vintage white laces and the little Reebok triangle is red.

Not sure if that was posted anywhere, but I just found that info from icethetics.info

EDIT: It was actually posted about 4 pages ago, silly me. Carry on.

How are the premier jerseys from nhlshop, quality/looks wise? I can't justify paying for an authentic, and I definitely do not want a replica.

Just went through the list and it's funny to see they've added players like Bourque (60), Grachev (59), McDonagh (51), McIlrath (73), McNaught (76), Niemi (45), Stepan (57), Thomas (58), Valentenko (46), Werek (61), Wilson (48), and Yogan (49). Also, they've got MZA as Zuccarello, Mats (36).

PREMIER = REPLICA
EDGE = AUTHENTIC

$300+ for the Customized EDGE jerseys...

If you don't want to spend that kind of money (and who can blame you), then you're looking at the PREMIER jerseys... The quality is good... I got mine from sportsk.com for $160...

Yeah what I meant by replicas were the 60 dollar ones they have up there. Probably end up getting a premier then, and it seems like its around 180 after customization and shipping. I just wanted to make sure they weren't pieces of junk that were gonna fall apart after a few wears. Thanks.

I got news for you; the Rangers regular jersey is boring-compared to the other Original 6 teams. Not a whole lot going on design wise. Especially compared to Chi & Mon. It looks quite similar to the regular jersey. So if this is "boring" wouldn't the actual Rangers jersey be "boring"?

Well I guess the distinction is that this was released as a commemorative jersey... It sounds like it will only be for this season... We'll have to cross our fingers for a unique looking 3rd jersey next year....

I got news for you; the Rangers regular jersey is boring-compared to the other Original 6 teams. Not a whole lot going on design wise. Especially compared to Chi & Mon. It looks quite similar to the regular jersey. So if this is "boring" wouldn't the actual Rangers jersey be "boring"?

Actually, while it is a plain jersey, it is also classic. It has been around forever, that is why it works. This 3rd is a take on an away sweater they wore for less then 10 years, and they changed the color, and added block font to make it look like a 30s throwback. In my opinion 3rd jersey's are supposed to be a teams chance to throw some flair into the mix, like the Liberties, which most people though were one of the best 3rds ever designed. Oh well, I hope they only wear it a few times...Maybe since it is an anniversary jersey they will change it again next year.

I like the classy look on the jersey. I am glad they didn't bring the liberty back, never liked them. I hated how all the players gloves where royal blue and the jersey where navy, never looked good (however I did like the white liberty). Lets hope everything matches this time around as this jersey looks to be more navy the royal blue.

Also I think they are going to wear the 3rd jersey against original 6 teams. For the Season and Half Season ticket holders, if you look at all the original 6 games the tickets they have an off white color on them to give the ticket a vintage look. It would make too much sense for them not to wear these throwbacks during those games.

This isn't a "third jersey", its a jersey to help celebrate the Rangers 85th Anniversary season.

I don't like it more then our home blues, but its very slick. I really do love it.

Flare is not always a good thing. Class is always a good thing. Ill take clean and classy over flare.

I will be looking to get a custom Frank Boucher #11 from a specific vendor due to their quality. Boucher is the original Rangers great. And to commemorate the 85th season, what better way.

If they sell I guess they may keep them, I just think if they would have gone the "old style" route they should have done it as an exact look of the 30s, with the rangers on a diag. It's just a mish-mosh of ideas, I think that is what bugs me. First off, did we ever have a jersey that color back in the day?? I think the closest to it is actually the Liberty jersey. Ah, whatever I guess. For those of you that like it, enjoy.

The two options for 3rd jerseys as I see it are either throwbacks or a completely new design.

The Rangers have already gone the route of a completely new design with the liberty jerseys, and as evidenced in this thread it's about 50/50 between people hating them or loving them.

On the other hand, it's hard to find a Rangers throwback jersey because they've had the same design FOREVER (except for the ones with the Rangers logo in the center).

I don't think the Rangers organization was looking for a flashy new design here, because that is hit or miss (liberty jersey). If they came out with some flashy new design I think half of us would think it was cool and the other half would be throwing up.

Instead, they went with a traditional, though new, design, so it would satisfy the fans who have been pining for a 3rd jersey and the fans who don't care if their team has a 3rd jersey so long it doesn't look like this:

Not a big fan of the Liberty jerseys, either.

I like tradition, heritage, and class.

These commemorative jerseys (not going to use the term "third jersey" regarding these) are very classy, stay true to heritage and tradition.

Btw, I thought Boucher wore #11 but I was wrong, he wore #7 and #17. #7 probably primarily. And #17 I'm going to guess when he came out of retirement as a player for a very short period before retiring again as a player.

This jersey is way nicer than the liberty jersey. Liberty had no striping like the Rangers home/aways on the bottom, so they looked like crap.

I work in the design field so a third jersey is more than just a money making scheme to me (even though at its heart it is)

I saw the 85 anniversary logo with areas of taupe in it and I just saw the new jersey leaked in this thread and I am thrilled they took the design in a different "throwback" direction with the vintage look.

I like the old 3rd Liberty LOGO, but hate the jersey. Its too gimmicky. I liked the old Rangers logo sweaters from the 70's, was meh about the old "New York" ones that looked the same as the current jersey- so I felt they definitely needed to switch up the color palette and font selection.

I'm hoping they'll add that 85th patch to the shoulder and thats one hell of a jersey IMO, even if its simple. I'm a less is more kinda guy and I love that color scheme and new font. I think it works really well and there's a lot of old-time nostalgia emitting from that design. Love it. Kudos to the design team.

Some of you know that I release a custom schedule each year, one that you can fill in the scores and records throughout the season. I am currently working on it and I'm hoping I can gain access to that anniversary logo and new jersey font because I'd love to incorporate it into this years version.

The font is the same they used in their early years. I doubt we would be able to find a true type file or anything. But seeing as we designers think alike, I'm sure you could re-create the type. Its pretty much just block lettering.

I agree with you on the color choices, they're fantastic. And the clean, simple, classy design. Less IS more. That's why I'm a huge fan of our home blue jerseys.

Little less then that, I think around 180 if I'm correct. And it's not that bad if you see what you like there. They have some replica's stitched with the nameplate, some with them stitched straight on to the jerseys and others with the iron on. If you can find one that has the nameplate and is stitched, then it's not that bad of a deal since the price won't be that much different from SportsK and River City if you include the shipping.

First time poster here -- I've checked older pages in this thread but was wondering if anyone can offer me specific advice. My 30th birthday is coming up and I decided to treat myself to a quality Mark Messier jersey. (I have a decent Pro Player one, but I'd rather a CCM or a Reebok.) I'd be willing to spend about $200, but after doing some research, my head is spinning with all the different stores, warnings of fakes, etc.

I've narrowed it down to these:

1. http://www.sportsk.com/vira19.html - customized

2. http://www.customthrowbackjerseys.com/products/MARK-MESSIER-New-York-Rangers-2004-CCM-Throwback-Away-Hockey-Jersey.html

3. http://www.stadiumstyle.com/prod/2277-New-York-Rangers-Mark-Messier-Vintage-White-Vintage-Jersey-.html

Can anyone tell me if any/all of these vendors are trustworthy? Is the work quality? Also, are any of these fakes? (For example, I have no idea if CCM released a 2004, 1996, or 1994 throwback jersey...did they? If not, what are these?) I also live in NY, so Cosby is an option. Should I just have them do it?

Thanks!

Dan

Its not a typical third jersey.

And the liberty jerseys were awful and have nothing to do with Rangers tradition.

Most likely Cosby's only has RBK jerseys and putting Messier on an edge jersey is a no-no. IMO.

If you are a sz48 there is a original Pro Messier CCM from the '94 season on ebay right now and it has the stanley cup patch on the shoulder. Cant beat the real thing.

There are also a couple Messier Liberty jerseys as well on ebay.

Hey whatever floats your boat.

I don't feel the liberty jerseys are that great.

The Rangers regular home blues are basically the same jersey they wore since their inception(with slight modifications to the font and collar). Not the liberty jersey.

The Rangers won 3 Stanley Cups. Their best players in franchise history (Gilbert, Boucher, Cook, Ratelle, Bathgate...all the way through Leetch, Richter, Messier, Lundqvist) wore those jerseys. If you want to bring up commemorating Richter's mask as a reason to wear them, then how's tradition? You know, about 70+ years of it before the liberty jerseys were contrapted.

And again, the new jerseys this year are meant to commemorate. They're not a typical third jersey. They're not supposed to be tacky, flashy, and gimmicky. Which is what the liberty jerseys were.

Just saying.

It seems to be a league wide thing this year. I know the Leafs are celebrating 75 years. The Sharks 20 years, the Canucks 40 years. Not sure who else is doing it.

If I was going to get a Premier jersey for say, Gaborik, which I've been thinking about, would you advise getting a blank Premier custom stitched, or are the versions sold with the names good enough?

Have them do the stitching, they do a good job... I.E. order it customized...

I believe they only carry the blank jerseys and do all the customization work after you place the order with the specified name & number... The picture on the site is accurate with now the name plate & stitching will look on the jersey you get shipped:

No, technically it's not. ;)

The statue is situated in Upper New York Bay on Liberty Island, south of Ellis Island. Both islands were ceded by New York to the federal government in 1800. As agreed in an 1834 compact between New York and New Jersey that set the state border at the bay's midpoint, the original islands remain New York territory despite their location on the New Jersey side of the state line. Land created by reclamation at Ellis is New Jersey territory.

I agree about Lady Liberty, despite her historical precedence is NYC. The team isn't called the 'New York Liberties' or something like that.

What don't they come up with a logo incorporating a damn Ranger already!? Whether it be a cowboy or some kind of medieval forest hunter, it would be kinda nice if they had a logo that represented the team, and not just the city.

I guess the tradition is there, and you're never going to make everyone happy, so they don't get too creative. The shield is okay, but it's kind of boring.

So why don't we make jersey's that have the empire state building on them?

Or the World Trade Center?

As meaningful and impactful as that might be to some people, it doesn't mean it makes a good jersey.

I still stand by the fact that the lady liberty jersey's look like a cheesy version of a transformers character.

And no offense Dagoon, cause I love your posts, but it's easy to understand how someone who likes wrestling would enjoy those jerseys.

I think the fact that you acknowledge they're "a little tacky" and you're someone who likes them should help you understand why some people can't stand them.

What exactly do those jersey's represent? I'm not sure what that means.

For me they represent a pretty terrible era of Rangers hockey.

Only fitting they were wearing terrible jerseys at the time.

I also don't follow what other teams fans have to do with anything. They're outsiders who have no connection to the team. The jersey means something entirely different to people who follow them day to day then it does to outsiders who have no vested interest.


It should be labeled a commemorative jersey and not a 3rd jersey, it's shelf-life is this season...

There's no precedent in the league that 3rd jerseys need to have anything to do with a team's 'tradition' so I'm not sure why that's worth pointing out....


Are you going to cry sour grapes because someone calls it a third jersey instead of a commemorative? I think it's pretty obvious what it is, who cares what they refer to it as.

There isn't a precedent in the league about that obviously, but I think that there are plenty of Rangers fans who grew up loving this team thanks to their fathers, and grandfathers, and the rich history of this club dates back long before the Nashville's and Carolina's of the world were around.

Most Rangers fans don't want to be associated with those kind of teams/franchises who have to try every little thing to generate reveune and try and catch people's attention.

We are The New York Rangers. And we are not some mediocre, second rate, desperate, mickey mouse (although we may play like one on the ice!) organization.

And to most Rangers fans, that's what's important.

Coming up with some comic book transformers look alike third jesey is something my father and grandfather and plenty of Rangers fans have their stomachs turn over.

I think we understand that it's the 21st century and things are different now, but to some of us, that jersey represents a whole lot more than just a piece of fabric.

And it's not something that should be infringed upon.

Can't cope? Were their riots in the streets when the liberty jerseys came out? I think people coped just find I agree with you. There's just a lot of us who think they're absolutely horrible and don't think this organization needs to change anything.

A debut on the home opener would've been great... I want to see it in action already, dammit.

That place looks pretty legit, but if you're concerned, then sportsk.com, rivercitysports.com, and icejerseys.com are all legit.

To all those complaining about tradition, how long have you been fans? I am just curious. I have been a fan since '75-76, and I had no problem with the Liberty jerseys at all. If you hate them, did you hate the shield and striped arm jersey of the late 70s? That one totally replaced the normal jersey, must have really pissed you guys off. Maybe we should go the way of European football. Most big clubs are older then the NHL, they each have one traditional jersey, and the away jersey changes every year, a la the third jersey type of thinking, brings in lots of money (that is what this is really all about, not tradition).

Good points guy... I wanted to say something about the shield logo jersey and how that was completely different from our previously worn traditional jerseys when it was implemented.... That "broke tradition" at the time... Yet many of the fans clamoring for "keeping the tradition" have said they would have no problem with us wearing the shield jerseys as our 3rds.... I guess by that logic, in 25 years, the Rangers can go back to the Liberty jerseys because by that time, the era that we originally wore them in is part of our tradition. :laugh:

I dont really get the fascination with "tradition" with the jerseys. Its really an odd complex that sports fans have with teams. I could care less if the rangers had orange and lime green uniforms and replaced the shield with a jack o lantern saying rangers in the pumpkins teeth.

I agree with wolf and would just rather put a quality item on the ice than worry about the tradition of jerseys.

And I don't get how someone can support an original 6 club not NOT care about tradition. To each their own.

I guess what I don't get is how wearing a 3rd jersey 10 games (out of the 82) is having any negative impact on that established tradition of this organization. Do we think any less of the other original 6 teams that experimented with various jerseys or even modified their traditional ones? Who's going to look down on us for doing so.

I'm 25 years old. Tradition to me is 1994 and Messier, Leetch, Richter and Graves. Tradition IS the Liberty jersey.

Sure I have a HUGE regard for Eddie, Andy Bathgate, Harry Howell, the Cook Brothers, Gilbert, the GAG Line and everyone else who has ever put on a blueshirt, but everyone has their own view on their team's history.

I agree. I suppose it's because i'm a younger dude than most of you, but the tradition that i feel most inclined to feel a part of and care about is the late 80's-90's.

So because we weren't alive to see it, we should forget history?

I'm not old, but history is important to me. World history, human history, my team's history. Not only the time period I was able to see.

Black alternate & winter classic jersey ring a bell?

BTW, they ware the Winter Classic multiple games now as an alternate with the addition of the tommahawk patch to the shoulders.

Considering the bland, but classic look of the Rangers jersey. The Liberty alternate was a great look. Granted I took the same negative stance as the historians here when they 1st came out, but I was in my teens at the time and alternate jerseys were new to the league in general. At least it's not as flamboyant as the Pooh Bear jersey with bearclaw shoulder yokes and the Wildwing jersey with a full frontal cartoon Duckie on it and a horrid name/number font. The Liberty jersey was actually pretty conservative compared to others of the era.

That black jersey is a replica of an older hawks jersey. It's not a new design.

im talking about the one they scrapped in favor of the 30s style jersey. it was basically the same thing as their red jersey, just with black.

So if I can get this straight, as long as we have a nice diagonal rangers across the sweater (or New York I guess) it is considered traditional? If that is the case, how about this....

The Rangers have a wonderful history. Part of that history is failure. To ignore or forget "our" history because they didn't win a cup is ludicrous. Which also makes our early history that much more important because we did win 3 cups in that early time period.

Change the red to blue, and the RBK to CCM and you'd have a winner.
