LondonGardens Posted November 2, 2017 Report Share Posted November 2, 2017 (edited) Hello all!! First post but I have been reading and learning from all your posts for the last three months or so - thanks for sharing all the knowledge! Thought I'd start a thread on collecting themes and styles, and generate some discussion on customization. I decided that I finally wanted to get the jerseys that I liked as a kid - the one's I saw in my ESSO Power Players (Canadian Gas Station chain put them out in 1971) and the Loblaws grocery chain's stamps to put in a book with all the players so from the 73-74 season, IIRC. I have been fortunate enough to pick up a mix of Premier/CCM 550s and 7287/2.0s - as many as I can find that match or closely match the jerseys from that Era, and now I'm thinking about customizing. I realize that absolute authenticity will be impossible and I'm fine with that. I've got many players in mind that I will use and want to customize to with the right number colours and even lack of names where that matches the general layout from that Era. The NHL Uniform database seems like a great resource for this. So I'm wondering if I'm the only one out there with this focus, or even if this approach is frowned upon. Ultimately I'm doing this to please my nostalgic impulse, so I know I'll be happy. I also really enjoy the idea of having people get the inside meaning of customizing a Habs 2.0 with a 29 on the back even though there is no name! Thoughts?
