Van67 Posted January 16, 2018 Report Share Posted January 16, 2018 Found the Belarus cyrillic red jersey I've always wanted on eBay recently. It's an authentic, size 52 so I jumped at it knowing that it lacks any IIHF tagging and patch. I don't care about an IIHF tag inside the neck like a lot of jerseys from this era have, but I'm curious about the lack of a patch on the bottom right hem. Does anyone know of any tournaments this jersey was worn without an IIHF tag? It's appearing to me that the older IIHF patch (globe with italicized letters) is impossible to find. The newer IIHF patch (thick, bold letters) was on this jersey in 2005, so that's an option... but I want to turn this into a Ruslan Salei jersey, and he did not play at the 2005 IIHF World Championships. He did however, play in 2006 Olympic qualifying that took place in February 2005, when Belarus was obviously still using these jerseys... but I have been unable to find a photo showing the back of a Belarus player at this event. I don't know if they had an IIHF patch at that event, or if they did, which patch it was. Any help with pics or information is appreciated. Pics of the jersey currently en-route to me...
