Possible to strip an Edge without damage/marks?

I'm curious about this, because I noticed that the Giroux authentic I picked up uses the Winter Classic font for the sleeves, not the actual away font. This is stupid and little, but it bugs me. Can these numbers be removed without leaving any mark on the jersey, such as holes or an imprint? I'd really like this one to be perfect. Thanks. I can post reference pictures if needed.

Thanks, I went through the thread and I'm wondering if there are any more recent experiences with it? I'm just curious because I have this terrible feeling I'm going to need to do it soon, unless someone wants an authentic Giroux with cup patch for $210.

I took this:

and made it into this:

I had no problems until I got to the sleeves, the numbers on the sleeves were glued down pretty strongly. Taking advice around various boards I used goof off on the underside of the sleeve and that just made the glue stick even more. After getting the numbers off and trying various items to remove the adhesive (goof off, washing, acetone, cleaners ect) the only thing that actually worked was taking an iron and burning it off. There was still a little left behind but the new numbers covered most of it and luckily there was no damage to the jersey in the process. If you're replacing them with the same numbers I wouldn't worry so much about this, just rip the threads from the top part of the twill and go slow and you'll be fine.

Makes sense, and thanks. Luckily they didn't glue down the numbers, so my only concern is if the stitching will leave a mark.

That's easy then..the sticthing will leave a mark but just take an iron on low heat to it and that should take most of it out and the rest will probably be covered by the new numbers.
