1973-74 Flyers Look a Like

Pearson made the Flyers jerseys back when they wore durene. Your best bet to match the crest up would be to find a replica Bauer or general athletic brand from the 70's with the nice embroidered crests. The ones you posted look like they are from late 80's or 90's crests which are more squared off than the ones they wore from the late 60's through 1979.

The lettering will be somewhat tough to duplicate. I know that PLA in Philly did a real nice reproduction of a 74-75 Leach jersey using a Peterson's jersey taking number measurements directly from a Leach HSI knit gamer. I saw it in person, it looked pretty good.

Not sure if EPS could help you out with the lettering and the retro font Ruberti's has on file wouldn't be quite right either....

I just bought this old blank on Ebay, it looks to be all durene: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Blank-PHILADELPHIA-FLYERS-Hockey-Jersey-White-XL-By-Sindys-of-Ohio-/300874698230?_trksid=p2047675.l2557&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEWAX%3AIT&nma=true&si=KIfD8nyTdKhBI257xKnQklSC0eI%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc

I am trying to find a correct, or correct looking crest, and I think these may be close:

Compare it to the jersey here: http://www.gamewornauctions.net/products/1973_74_Simon_Nolet_Philadelphia_Flyers_Stanley_Cup_Finals_Game_Worn_Jersey_Photo_Match_Video_Match-5840-0.html

Any thoughts on where to send it for numbering? I am thinking EPS.

Those crests are WRONG. The bottom "feather" in the flying P logo should be rounded/scooped at the bottom, not flat/horizontal like in the modern logo. Merci!

I think I may strip the crest from a knock off Mitchell and Ness Parent jersey I have lying around. I may also just take the name plate from it because it is probably as close as anything EPS could do. Before I do anything I am going to run to PLA and see what they think.
