Seriously though, I loved those jerseys. One of the best jersey designs ever IMO. Truly would like to have one in my collection.

The new ones aren't bad, but not nearly as good as the ihl version.

Was worried with the logo revision, but I LOVE how it looks on the whites!

Not going to lie.... that's not half bad.

And their home whites logo actually looks pretty sweet.

Not too sure about the arms, but overall pretty solid for a minor league sweater.

Well unless the ECHL changes its rule the whites will only be the home jersey for half the season then they'll switch to the purple.

Ok, not all of them, just one. Definitely one of my grails.

I never get tired of looking at your collection. Simply spectacular.

That rule is stupid, never understood it. They go back to whites at home in playoffs. I do know in our last regular season game at Wheeling, we wore our dark jerseys and they wore our home whites, so their must be exceptions in this rule somewhere.

Completely disagree with you about this and would love to see other leagues swap as well.

Agreed, actually. Think that would be a good idea for the NHL as well. They could even swap the order every other year, too.

2012-13 - colors at home first half of the season, whites at home second half of the season, colors at home in the playoffs.
2013-14 - whites at home first half of the season, colors at home second half of the season, whites at home in the playoffs.
2014-15 - colors at home first half of the season, whites at home second half of the season, colors at home in the playoffs.
2015-16 - whites at home first half of the season, colors at home second half of the season, whites at home in the playoffs.
etc.
etc.

Think that'd be a good, best of both worlds situation. Satiates people that prefer colors and whites and gives the added benefit of seeing much more variety in other teams' sweaters half the season.

If anything the home team should get the option to pick which sweater it wants to wear for each game.

Would be daunting for the road team, theyd have to pack everything.

That's a pretty sweet jersey.... I've always liked the Solar Bears nickname, logo and jersey. I still have the bear from my one trip to a game before they folded up shop.

I like the darker one, but with the secondary logo. It just seems that the text and logo are fighting to be more noticeable. The nice patterns were also a nice touch. The only thing is the contrasting nameplate color background. (white jersey, purple background, white name text) it just doesn't look right even though most ECHL teams have it that way.

They do, they have the online shop open:

They are a bit pricey though.

Was hoping for a New Era cap, but holy crap at 80.00 for a cotton sweater. Might just have to go with a shirt.
