Sabres Jerseys

Not sure if there is an all jersey talk type thread here. But I'm looking for a pre-slug jersey in white. (Either the 70's-95 whites or the 96-06/07 ones with the scary Buffalo/Bison.) I almost bought a Satan jersey in the red (the jersey with the 2 Sabres crossing in front saying "BUFFALO" on the bottom.) But can anyone help me out? Thanks

If eBay, carefully check sellers and definitely don't buy from anyone that isn't from the U.S. or Canada. Lots of fakes abound. I know from searching for Hartford Whalers jerseys...

I thought of there. Problem is I live in NJ and I won't be moved to WNY for another good month or 2. Ebay's usually hit or miss

Nowhere, really. The Chinese sites do a laughably bad job with the Sabres jerseys, they all have the wrong colours, or the stripes are just completely the wrong size. On a lot of the away ones they'll have the silver piping go all the way to the back of the jersey for some reason.. I've even seen some that say "Leind" instead of Leino because the capital D and O look kind of similar.

The worst part is a lot of people actually wear ones like them to the games.

$32 sounds awfully cheap...Are they noticeably inferior?

It all depends on what kinda fan you are etc.

I think for 32 bucks the quality is great, its still stitched on...fight straps decent selection(last i had seen around 25 choices for sabres) and custom options for 80.

I know someone above commented on the size of stripes etc so if you're that into jerseys and nit-picky(no offense to those who are at all) then it may not be for you, however if your lookin for a good loungin/bar jersey to drink a few brews in and support your team it'll be just fine using that site.

Again its not perfect, I got my mom a Winter Classic jersey for Xmas and the color was more of an off-white than the real jersey colors but she was still in love with it so it worked out lol.

Also to go back to my story of my vanek jersey coming with the name plate sewn on upside down with alittle bit of arguing via email for myself I got them to send me another one free of charge and they let me keep the upside down vanek which I therein took to a tailor and for 10 bucks got that fixed lol so 2 vaneks for 42+shipping....

Funny that you claim it's a way to support your team by purchasing illegal goods that in no way support the team when the franchise and every other franchise depend on revenue from the sales of legitmate jerseys.

Seriously? They DEPEND on that? Paying 150 bucks a game ain't enough? I gotta take it up the behind for 200 more for a jersey?

150 bucks a game? where are you sitting?

Bottom line is all chinese fakes are very noticeable, and frankly look ridiculous. They're 40 bucks for a reason. The stitching is messy and loose, and when you wash them they shrink and make the stitching and colours even more off. The fonts are always wrong too, not sure why you guys even want a fight strap on your jersey.

It is amazing how many fans wear fakes to a game. Out alone without legitimate ones to compare against they might not look that bad but man next to the real thing, they stick out pretty bad. Proportions, color, font, cut, etc..

Yeah, I wouldn't feel like I'm supporting the team in a fake but I can see the draw, especially for casual "fans" and not wanting to spend a fortune on a legitimate childrens' jersey.

The fake jerseys remind of uniform inspection days in the Marine Corps. Guys would try to save a few bucks by buying uniform items from non-approved sources and they could generally get away with it until inspection day. Once they stood in a platoon of 30-40 Marines, it was easy to tell that their pants weren't the right green or that their dress blue jacket wasn't stitched properly.


Fake jerseys are the same way, sure they look okay by themselves but if you go to a game they are so easy to spot out.

Yeah somehow watching every single game, going to a few games of year that require me to drive an hour and pay ridiculous gas prices, going to amerks game, buying 8 dollar drinks and being a tremendous fan is trumped by the fact that Im a 23 year old guy paying college loans and all the other bills everyone else here has too and I cant afford to pay 200 for a jersey too...? Not sure how the inability to afford expensive jerseys makes me less of a fan. Perhaps pegula throwing cash at everything that moves has rubbed off on you the wrong way....

Yea, we only sell the original white set jerseys. We have a few made up with names like Hawerchuk, LaFontaine, Martin, Perreault.

Someone actually asked me a few weeks ago if we had any goathead jerseys available.

My Jersey is real, go it for Christmas a few years back, but my parents got it from nhl.com.... my girlfriends is also real....but i wouldn't be against buying a fake. I simply don't have the money to shell out 200 bucks for a Jersey, and i think just wearing the Jersey, real or fake, shows that you support the team. They don't need our Jersey money if they are selling tickets.

I have a black goat head jersey. It is blank on the back so you can add whatever player your heart desires. I've been wanting to sell it for a few years now. I barely wore it when I first got it, and I haven't worn it in several years.

I'm quite the fan of both Buffalo and NY. (NY more though, still.) I bought what looks to be an authentic Kaleta jersey. I'll post pics but the description said the guy bought it blank from NHL.com and had someone he knew sew the name and numbers on. Everything's stitched in but the numbers seem strange; They look like the ones on the 2009/2010 alternates (When they first revived the original logo with modifications.) The numbers look bigger than they are on the home ones this year and last year.






They look...off to me
