Visiting SPB in early August, want to buy a SKA jersey, can anyone help?

We're visiting St. Petersburg in early August on a cruise, and one of our primary goals for the day is to buy an authentic SKA jersey for our son's 16th birthday which is the next day.

Our son has been an Maxim Afinogenov fan since his days in Buffalo and really hoping we can find his jersey.

In chatting with our guide company that will be escorting us for the day, it appears the SKA jersey's are hard to find, and may need to be pre-ordered. Our guide is willing to do that, but is not a hockey fan and would like some tips on the best places to look for the jersey and or order it prior to our arrival.

I've read to look for Lutch or Kait for brands, but have also read that is not who SKA uses for their jerseys. Can anyone help point me in the right direction?

Also, what cost should we be expecting to pay? On eBay they appear to be about $80 with dye-sublimation printing of the names and logos and whatnot on Lutch jerseys (eBay sample). I'm guessing these are much cheaper than authentics we hope to buy in SPB?

Does anyone know what we should expect to pay and have some sources I can provide our guide to purchase one in advance of our arrival?

Also, do the jersey's the SKA players wear normally have tackle twill sewn on lettering like NHL jersey's, or are they dye sublimated like the eBay jersey's referenced above?

Many thanks for any help some locals could provide!
