Are you referring to gameworn jerseys or just jerseys in general.

Either way, but especially with gamers, be careful, do your homework before buying. There are a lot of fakes out there.

And, if you are looking for gamers, Meigray typically has at least 2 sales per year where they heavily discount older jerseys. Otherwise it never hurts to contact the teams directly if you are interested in their gamers.

There is a CBJ Reebok Umberger jersey on ebay. The pix are small, but he emailed me better pix. The jersey was bought from NHL.com.

the "A" on the chest looks a little out of place, and the stars seem a little too big too, but thats just my opinion. i only buy the authentics at the blue line

With it being a replica more then likely they heat pressed the numbers on and sometimes the numbers are not even twill. Also its over priced IMHO.

The Umberger looks ok, but it's overpriced. I have a commodore replica (don't ask), from the 2008 season that has an A and it looks the same. Stars too.

The price is high, but it's not crazy. If you consider that same game worn jerseys were selling for $185 recently, $127 or whatever for a replica is nuts. That said, it's an Umberger and you're not getting an Umberger game worn for close to that and an authentic is too expensive as well. So, $127 doesn't look all that bad in that context I think the real negative is the NHL customization. It's probably, if not certainly, inferior compared to what the blue line turns out.

I'd look at a place like icejerseys.com or river city sports for sales. Sometimes you can get a customized authentic as cheap as $150-225. Also, you could get a blank on sale somewhere and either take it to the blue line, or send it to exclusive pro sports or major league lettering for the name and numbers. At least that way it would be sewn on.

My Springfield wins. The Wesslau was actually unsold, so I got a better deal off ebay. Probably should've waited for the road jerseys and got one home and one road, but I like goalie cuts. I hope both guys are still in the org next year. Wesslau is probably headed back to Sweden though.

2010-11 Springfield Falcons Anton Blomqvist D. Only worn for 3 games, but has some decent repairs and wear..probably from the big fight he got into at the end of one of those games.




The numbers aren't at all like CBJ numbers. They are what I think is called dye-sublimated..two colors on one thin (not twill) fabric to give the illusion of two layer twill.


2010-11 Springfield Falcons Gustaf Wesslau G



next week: Syracuse madness!

I picked up a really cool Knoxville Ice Bears jersey this weekend in Tennessee. Knoxville is part of the SPHL. I haven't yet had it customized. The Ice Bears have a lady who does the sewing & customizations. Anyhow, the colors on this jersey are vivid. What you cant see by this pix is purple trim at the wrists. The front crest has a pix of the Smoky Mountains (Most likely Rocky Top - Thunderhead Mountain) with a black bear (on steroids) holding a stick. Absolutely love this jersey.

I've had some of these in my photo gallery for awhile, but I finally received them in person today!

Syracuse Crunch Gamers!

2007-08 Syracuse Crunch Derick Brassard



2008-09 Syracuse Crunch Grant Clitsome



and finally, a favorite of this household:

2000-01 Syracuse Crunch Jody Shelley (357 PIM that season, still a Crunch record)

Great pick ups again John. Are the name plates on the Crunch jerseys twill?

Weird.

The blue away jersey is like airknit. same as what the CBJ use. Not sure I know the difference between airknit and Edge 2.0 material. It's an Edge 1.0 jersey.

The Clitsome is an edge 2.0, but the nameplate is twill. I suspect they used twill for home jerseys and airknit for away? not enough sample size to know for sure. Any other Syracuse owners who can speak to the nameplate material?

The Shelley is Ultrafil with a twill nameplate (I think, it's as shiny as, but with a heavier texture than, the newer clitsome).

Thanks, I still have not decided what to do with my blank Crunch jersey. I may just end up selling it.

Edge 2.0 is airknit.

If I recall correctly, Syracuse used twill nameplates for both home and away. It requires less adhesive to actually stabilize when applying the nameplate, so stripping one off is a breeze (always a concern with a minor-league team). It's also possible to actually reuse twill nameplates, although I don't know how common that practice is.

They have not added anything new yet. I posted a list a couple of pages back that has most of what they still have for sale.

I guess I was just thinking of semantics in that edge 2.0 is like airknit, but not exactly. either way, it's lightweight with holes

The Brassard Syracuse away from 2007-08 is definitely not twill. it's pretty much an exact match to the material the CBJ use on their nameplates. It has no sheen to it and has holes throughout. The 2.0 Clitsome, in comparison, has a shiny white fabric nameplate, with a 'grain' to it that really sticks out in how it reflects when photographed.

BTW, I was never a big fan of Syracuse's uniform, but I really do dig them much more in person, particularly the away blue. It's a sharp looking jersey, even though they went a little nuts with the piping.

I love how much detail there is in the crest.

Their new Ducks colored jersey are no where near as nice as the Jacket ones.

Just got this one in the mail. 03-04 Tyler Wright Game Worn Set 3. No big team repairs on this one but there are a couple of small holes and a lot of marks on it.
