Add a 1, remove the name plate and add van Riemsdyk i actually don't have one. I have a blank jersey but waiting until someone signs a life-time contract to use it, might just put Mats or Dougie on it.

What is the moral of this little story? If anyone is ever going to buy a Leaf jersey get the players who have their numbers honoured or retired, perhaps even a player that has been with the team 5+ years. That way you can still rock that jersey outside your house or at the ACC with honour.

Here is a list of honoured / retired players:

1 Johnny Bower (1959-70)
1 Turk Broda (1937-52)
4 Hap Day (1926-37)
4 Red Kelly (1959-67)
5 Bill Barilko (1946-51)
6 Ace Bailey (1927-34)
7 King Clancy (1931-37)
7 Tim Horton (1950-70)
9 Charlie Conacher (1930-38)
9 Ted Kennedy (1943-57)
10 Syl Apps (1937-48)
10 George Armstrong (1950-71)
13 Mats Sundin (1994-2008)
17 Wendel Clark (1985-94, 1996-98, 2000)
21 Borje Salming (1973-89)
27 Frank Mahovlich (1957-68)
27 Darryl Sittler (1971-82)
93 Doug Gilmour (1991-97, 2003)

Buying a third jersey from the last two years would be awesome for the above players listed from the 1950's to 1960's.

The baby boomers will respect your classic choice and new fans will ask about that player's history. I have a Sundin jersey and still will wear it with pride as he is an honoured member. A player like Jason Blake, Versteeg, etc who is with the Leafs only three seasons or less will be forgotten as their contribution meant little to the organization in the last 40+ years.
Good post. Some great advice. This is dedicated to the Lumme leafs jersey I saw at a Copps Col years ago.

There are some great Leafs jerseys at Scotiabank Place whenever the Leafs play there. Yushkevich is my all-time favorite. BOOZE #17 on a 90s white Leaf jersey was amusing.

No point in buying a jersey when Burke is GM, he trades everyone even his future captain.

My Schenn jersey is the only one I have of their new alternates, so I'll be keeping it.

Just because he no longer plays here doesn't mean you can't still wear it to Leafs games or just in general. It's not like anyone would look at you weird for wearing the jersey of a player not currently on the roster, as long as they played here at one point in time.

In 2010 I bought a Versteeg jersey and he got traded to the Flyers. This year, I bought a Schenn jersey and he got traded to the Flyers. Next year, I'm buying a Komisarek jersey.

I don't have a Schenn jersey but after his rookie season I purchased a Luke Schenn autograph picture which I hang on the wall in my room, although at least it still has value to it.

I have 2 jerseys, one blue blank one & a Dougy Gilmour vintage white one. I only wear the Dougy jeresy when I go to Real Sports or Leafs games.

Wear it anyways. If anyone questions you why, well, it's now a throwback jersey.
