Customizing a rare and expensive jersey

Recommended Posts

I have been wanting to get my authentic Wild Wing jersey customized for some time now. I was wondering what is the safest way to get the jersey customized? I am afraid to send it in the mail and then to find out it gets lost. I know i can insure the jersey for what its worth but at the same time if it gets lost all i will have is the money and no jersey. I would rather have the jersey then the money otherwise i wouldent have paid a crazy amount of money to get the jersey. My question is what is the best way to get the jersey customized without it getting lost? Or is that even possible? Thanks for any help

Players i have decided on Selanne, Kariya or Hebert although i am leaning more towards Selanne

Size 56

SELANNE #8. hands down. not sure if he had the "A" or not at the time, but i guess thats what gettyimages is for. good luck!

Selanne did not wear the A in the Wild Wing.

Action Spot Sports (formerly Jersey Express) could probably help you out. They're currently doing a Selanne Wild Wing for me.

You can always buy a kit and have it done locally at a tailor or a place that specializes in athletic wear. That's how I've been doing my jerseys for the past while.

I dont live in a hockey state. There are places around here that can do sports jerseys but they dont know anything about hockey jerseys.

Honestly dude just mail it out. Gamers that run in the thousands of dollars are put through the mail system everyday without issue. Insure it for what it cost you and you'll be fine.

Exactly. Just insure it for whatever it would cost to replace it in the unlikely event something happens and you're fine. If you're concerned about losing a valuable jersey, don't settle on crappy/local customizing options for that jersey.

If you're going to have it lettered - please, for the love of the hobby, send it to the original lettering house (or to the people with the original font sets). You might as well spray paint your numbers on the back if you're thinking of sending it to a lettering house that has a "close enough" font.

Ask "JunkyardAthletic" about who did work for the Ducks in '96. He's really in-tune with the industry and has worked with a ton of lettering houses. From what I remember, it was AIS sports (in CA) who did the Ducks shirts in the 90s, but the person who has the old fonts now owns Bobcat Athletic (also in CA).

Thanks for the kind words.

Angelo is correct, AIS did them, however, it is Bob from Bobcat Athletic that ran the job while at AIS. He did both Burger King and Wild Wing.
