Practice Jersey Question


Recommended Posts

Can anyone tell me what years this style of practice jersey was used?

I'm going to guess and say they started using those around 1998-99. There are CCM and ProPlayer versions, which would have been used through 00-01. http://www.classicauctions.net/Default.aspx?tabid=263&auctionid=56&lotid=846

In 2000-01 they tagged the white gamer jerseys as CCM and the darks and alts as Koho. The practice jerseys you pictured has the size tag on the front, indicating an authentic, which would be branded as Jofa or CCM from that season and beyond. http://www.classicauctions.net/Default.aspx?tabid=263&auctionid=55&lotid=154 http://www.classicauctions.net/Default.aspx?tabid=263&auctionid=38&lotid=931

I'd say they were worn until 2003-04 until the fancy new Reebok practice jerseys ( http://www.classicauctions.net/Default.aspx?tabid=263&auctionid=62&lotid=636 ) would have arrived in 2005-06, but some teams continued to wear the older style for some time.

The start date is hard to pin down. That style with the small upper chest logo came after this style with the large center logo,

This is labeled as a 96-98 http://sports.webshots.com/photo/1245658606063179087IkTjQc

and this is labeled as a 1998 training camp http://sports.webshots.com/photo/1248578988063179087GoCFtY

which fits my thoughts on them being first used in 98-99, but then I find this labeled as a 98-99 http://sports.webshots.com/photo/2855030630101329550xNORBI

So it's a bit blurry as to the actual start, depending on how accurately collectors label theirs and if there was an overlap of style usage like the changeover to the new Reebok style, which I saw for myself in person to be true.
