StayFrosty Posted April 18, 2020 Report Share Posted April 18, 2020 (edited) I am reserving this new thread to post updates on my collection as it advances and grows. UPDATE 5-5-2020 New pics have been posted as a reply! I'm regretting my original plans here. The idea was to have a jersey for every single existing NHL team and I'm just not seeing what the point or use would be. I don't see myself wearing anything other than Oilers colors at this time. And I will be getting most of them crested. I will buy Adidas "retail" Indo jerseys, or Reebok 2.0's if they are available with up to date on-ice designs. 4-18-2020: I've been sort of a shady hockey fan so far in my life, but now I realize that hockey has been one of my only consistent - albeit on and off - interests for the last 15 years. Other interests mostly come and go in no time. I recently sold almost my entire jersey collection (all Oilers team-issues) yet again. But now I have decided to keep the one last jersey I had for sale. I am currently looking for any jerseys that meet the following qualifications: - ANY of the current 31 NHL teams (soon to be 32) My new collection will hopefully have a jersey to represent each NHL team eventually. I prefer to start with the recent Stanley Cup winners and work my way backwards, but whatever. If I get a good enough deal, I might buy a jersey from any team. - Standard HOME TEAM colors only.... and no alternates. I only want dark-colored home team jerseys with their main logo on it that they usually play with in these modern times. - Can be Reebok authentic, team issued, or Indo-Edge. For Adidas I will take the "On-Ice" retail jersey, as long as everything is sewn to the jersey. I won't be picky anymore. I can't fool myself that I'm as die-hard as everyone here. What I don't like is spending a small fortune on a jersey, and risk something happening to it, especially when I consider that I wear the jerseys myself. These last five years there have been floods in my basement where I live, and now we have mice running around. I know there are ways to protect your jerseys, but I just can't justify owning such valuable items anymore in light of how life tends to go, as well as how the world is going. It doesn't feel right to me, especially when I'm not exactly "rich" by any stretch. - Must be a good price! As I said, I have to justify the expense. And that can't be EXPENSIVE. I won't even look at anything that would end up costing me over $250 CAD, and I hope to buy jerseys for much lower than that as well. I'm already getting off to a good start with that, as I have two new jerseys on the way from benhsports. - I need size 58, 58+, 60, or larger. I might go for a 56. I do still like to wear my jerseys, and I'm quite plump! - Jerseys I buy can be brand new, or used. I don't care really. I just don't want something that's in rough shape, unless it was a sick deal on a gamer. - I prefer BLANK jerseys, or something with a name on it of a player who actually accomplished big things for his team. Yes, you heard me, I will prefer blank jerseys. I want to represent the teams. And no offense to anyone here, but I don't care for the NHL players much. The put on an amazing game, but I just don't believe most of them are good people according to my standards. The main issue is also players getting traded or doing something stupid. I'm done stripping jerseys and getting them recrested, etc. I also want some symmetry in my collection, so in general I will be collecting blank jerseys and leaving them that way. It's under these guidelines that I hope to build my new collection over the next few years, and also why I don't really regret selling my old collection/s. As of today, this is the only jersey I still have in my possession, which is left over from my recent but former collection: Edited May 6, 2020 by StayFrosty Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
