Need Jersey Help

Does anyone know where I could either find a blank LA Kings purple jersey?

Like so:




I'm probably gonna get Kopitar stiched on the back so if you can find Kopitar one that would be even better.

I don't recall Kopitar ever wearing that style jersey.

I believe thats the jersey anyways? If it's not then let me know, cause it certainly looks purple in the video.

He wore it his first year in L.A., 2006-07.

check out http://www.nhluniforms.com/

Then in 07-08 RBK got their hands on the jersey and made it much, much worse.

If you look at the ebay jerseys posted above, be careful if you want the shield logo or the crown logo. Kopitar only used the crown logo (don't remember the year this was officially switched).

Also, if you buy a Kopitar jersey on e-bay, make sure you get the current font for Kopitar's #11. In the old font, the 1s looked almost like 7s. The current font for #1 is a little more "standard" looking (straight w/o notch at top). Maybe someone can post a few pix showing the 2 fonts, or just search Kopitar images online.

According to nhluniforms.com, the crown on purple style was only used until 2002. Any purple ones after that had the shield logo on it like the ones posted in the ebay link. I don't think Kopitar ever used the crown on purple uniform. I could be wrong, I'm new here. That being said, I have a crown on purple jersey that I found on ebay a few years ago. Keep looking.

The purple jersey with the crown on it was only worn until 2002. Kopitar didn't play for L.A. until 2006.

The one in the video has the shield crest on the front.

Yeah, you and E. penguin are right. I saw the shield logo in the e-bay ads and went off in that tangent and forgot about the purple jersey (instead of the black).

Although I must say that it was pretty cool to think about a jersey instead of Kovalchuk for a change.

BUMP!!!

As a gift from my roommate, he bought me a autographed Drew Doughty jersey (came with a certificate and everything). Needless to say, I have a fake Kings jersey as well, and the quality difference is just incredible. The new jersey even smells kickass. Does anyone happen to have any info regarding finding very nice Kings jerseys out there? Up north here the local jersey stores run at about 300+, so it would be nice to compare.

Daayyyyum $300? Is that for the official jerseys with the tie down? Because I believe down here those are even more like $200. I don't think I've seen a jersey much beyond the mid 250s aside from those game worn jereseys @ Team LA @ Staples Center.

i have the exact jersey the OP posted. i bought it back 2000-2003, sorry i dont recall exactly. it's a Koho pro-weight and i paid $180 iirc, then another $125 for full customizing. $300 should get you a pro-weight with customizing. ive heard the reebok's run a bit more in cost though, so i may be off slightly

Define "up north", cause I'm up in the Yukon and finding authentic NHL jerseys with names will run you 300+ easy IF you can find them locally. I've taken to ebay and found quite a few steals. The key being timing, don't be in a hurry and don't buy around playoff time. I've managed to get the kings purple 3rd with the crown, kings old school purple and gold, and a new kings 3rd with Kopitar on it all combined for less then $200.

If your real name is Ryan, I'm going to be scared. I used to live in Yukon as well. British Columbia now.

Heh, found a signed authentic Kopi jersey for 150, sold.

I... I don't know. I don't recall anyone I might know living up here that was a Kings fan moving down south to BC. I've never even seen a Kings jersey up here being worn by anyone, ever. We're a long way from L.A.

Is there anyplace on-line to find the purple classic jerseys that we wore at Vancouver this year? I've seen them in the team store but was wondering if anyone knew where they might be purchased on-line.

Thanks

Good luck finding the old numbers. The piping on the new numbers look stupid on non-RBK Edge jerseys. In my opinion anyway. If you don't mind the piping then all the power to you!
