Carl Posted July 11, 2009 Report Share Posted July 11, 2009 A couple of weeks ago I ordered an authentic Rob Niedermayer Ducks jersey from River City because they had a sale going on. In my request, I specifically asked to have the 2008-2009 version of the jersey as you may already know, the logos are bigger. I also sent a picture of the 'A' the ducks use because it is supposed to be tilted and not straight. Anybody on this forum would agree with me. Not only did they screw up the 'A', but they gave me a 07-08 jersey. A guy at customer service sent me a picture of the 'A' they wanted to use to make sure it was the correct one. But it wasn't. I sent pictures of game worn jersey on ebay with the tilted 'A' and the guy continued to tell me I was wrong and THAT IT WAS THE DUCKS THAT MADE A MISTAKE ON THEIR JERSEY!!! Here's the email he sent me after he had seen all the pictures from getty with the A in italics: "Hey Carl, Are you serious? That A is simply looking that way due to a bad cut and sew job, that in no way is Italic, you can see the curve of the right side which is completely inconsistent rest of the letter! As a collector you must know that things are not always perfect, even on game worn jersey's. A guy who works with me has a few gamers of Malkin and the numbers on the back are completely off centered, there are areas of stitchin that are completely missing all together. So essentially you would rather have your A with a bad cut/sew job rather than having it how it should be?? In all honesty, that A looks like it was cut by hand and not by the regular laser cutters, and when sewn it seems that the seamstress had it pinched over a bit. Regards, Rob Main" That's not it, they even screwed up the number '4', it simply did not have the same shape. I pointed that out to him also. And his answe was: these are the nhl approved 4s and the right ones would not fit on a size 52 jersey. I said: the jersey is full of mistakes (4s and 'A') so you either give me a refund or you honour your committment of customizing with what players wear on the ice (on their website they say that). I did everything I could, I stayed polite, sent them all the pictures! Guess what, they ignored my emails and sent me the jersey full of mistakes anyway!!! I'm so pissed! What should I do?
