What jerseys do you own & which is your favorite??
My lovely wife recently took all of our jerseys from the blue plastic tub ( we all have @ least one of those ) we store them in & made a display of them hanging them staggered as to see what each one is, on either side of our plasma screen in our "fan cave".
She is a native New Orleans girl & the only thing we have more of in our house than blue notes are Fleur Des Lis everywhere. It got me thinkin of each jersey, when I got it, which ones are my faves & why. Made me wonder if any of you all had any cool stories about your favorite jerseys & why you like them.
For example, This past season's fanfest She & the kids went ahead of me since I had to work the morning for a while , stood in line & got me a buttload of autographs on my Halak third jersey ( yes sue me, I am one of the few people who actually think that jersey looks awesome)
I took the train & met them over there. I was wearing my perron third, didn't get frenchies autograph THAT day but, I went outside on clark street to have me a smoke (I've since quit but glad I didn't before that day) only to find Bobby Plager outside havin one too. He signed on the "5" with a smiley face & was nice enough to sign my sons jersey as well as my wifes hat...later @ the rink tours david signed the "7" & asked "who signed the 5 on here?? I told him & he replied...way too cool...so I suppose outside of my wifes sobotka jersey ( her 1st one I got her @ valentines) I'd have to say my perron jersey is my favorite jersey I have, it's my 2nd fave blues item I have next to having Grant Fuhr's signed stick ( a stick he told me was one of his faves @ this years man show, asked me how I got it & I swear he seemed like he was almost gonna offer to buy it back , before signing it).
So, anyone else got a cool jersey or memorabilia story as we all anticipate a good long season?? ( and as I anticipate my new #91 jersey to get finished )

My first jersey that I ever had was a 1991-92ish Blues home (white) jersey that my parents got me when I was a kid. No name on the back, but it is autographed by Brett Hull.
I then have the 1996 Blues away jersey, got it with no name on the back. Thats back when Jim Campbell was good at hockey and he was my favorite player. Around the holidays my parents said they "spilled something" on my jersey and ended up taking it to a shop and got Campbell put on the back with his number for Christmas.
My favorite jersey came around 1997. My grandparents (who have no clue what hockey is) won a 1996-1997 era Brett Hull jersey from a bingo parlor LOL. It was the game quality Starter jersey, only it was size XL. Since I was 10 yrs old, I couldnt fit into it so it hung on my basement wall until now days where I wear it on the reg, perfect condition minus a few beer spills
I also have an Osh 3d jersey, autographed.
Latest jersey was just added this past Christmas from my girlfriend, Steen home jersey.
Perron third I got a couple years back
Demitra jersey I got when I was a kid but is to small now for me unfortunately.
And I just got a Petro home jersey for Christmas (which btw, the blues have yet to lose since I've gotten it)
My favorite is probably the Demitra jersey because it was my first, and for the nostalgia.
Blank Home Authentic (the season ticket holder ones they gave out after the 2005 lockout)
Blank 3rd "Authentic" (fabric feels way different from the other one)
Tarasenko Novosibirsk home 2011-2012 Authentic
The Tarasenko is my favorite by far. Looks great and not many people have it.
I own a Halak 3rd jersey, current away jersey, and I just got a Tarasenko Noviskibirsk 11-12 home for christmas.
Like the other gentleman above, the Tarasenko jersey is now my favorite it seems. I have not gotten to wear it to a game quite yet but I will be going to the Kings game on the 16th and plan to break it in there.
