All letters and numbers are sewn and glacier twill is used. The only thing is, it doesn't have a name plate; the name "Blake" is sewn directly to the jersey.
Is this normal? Are some jerseys just made this way? All the other jerseys I own have name plates so I've never seen one without one.
In the mid-90s, I got a Sergei Fedorov road (red) Detroit Red Wings jersey and the letters are sewn directly to the jersey without a name plate. It's not an authentic jersey by any means, just a CCM replica that I got customized at a local store.
