There was no striping. Very stripped down uni, just white numbers with no outline or drop shadow.

No they aren't 100% spot on, but they're so close that most won't notice, even on here. Minor inconsistencies like that are worth the price difference to me, and I haven't really found a better way to get just the letter kits for blank jerseys that are as accurate. 

 

Plus, there are a LOT of different options. Just about any NHL jersey you can think of they can do at least close enough to be passable

Where are you getting these kits from and do they ship nationwide?

Went to the Goodwill Outlet yesterday and it's tough to find anything jersey related, but some guy was walking around with a 1990's St. Louis Blues CCM jersey with the red and diagonal stripes so I asked him what size it was trying to gauge if he was going to keep it.

 

He noticed an old U. Dayton hat I had and he said he liked it. So we traded. Place is by the pound so I probably paid 50 cents for the jersey. It's in rough shape but I'm going to try to clean it up and then have EPS put Gretzky on it.

Been a while since I've found anything good... that changed today!

1993-95? Bayern shirt. Found a few pics, but none for sale on Ebay. Any ideas if this is authentic and/or rare?

 

1972-75? game-worn Tennessee basketball jersey. #45 was John Snow, a guard who made all-SEC Third Team a few times during the "Bernie and Ernie" days. This is one of my all-time best finds.

This is authentic shirt, but it's not that rare. :)

Couple different eBay sellers have them. Just be careful and ask for a pic of the actual product on a custom font team, as some are pretty far off. 

Also if it comes with a nameplate they tend to be hideous shiny twill things that look out of place on a jersey. 

 

If 100% accuracy (or even 75% on some) is what you want, they're probably not for you.

Went thrift shopping here in North Carolina today and found what looks like an old-school NC State football practice jersey for $4. It was listed as a XXL, but I didn't buy it because it was unusually tight around the stomach. Hell of a find, though.

Even though I passed on that, I did buy a fitted Milwaukee Braves hat from the same thrift shop for only $1(!).

I spent the weekend in Montreal and checked out a Winners store. Managed to come across a Mitchell and Ness Randall Cunningham green Eagles jersey on the clearance rack. Price tag at 129, reduced to 25. It's a size small which normally wouldn't fit me, but it fits more like a medium which I can deal with. Regardless I wasn't saying no to that beauty. The flying eagles on the shoulder are what got me.

 

Looked like this:

That's a gamer, not a practice jersey.

I think this picture also explains why it was "unusually tight around the stomach." :D

Nice to see the thread title's outlived the need for its creator's involvement :D

My local VV moved several blocks west a few years ago, and I only made my first trip there this afternoon...since I was looking for something else entirely (with no luck), I wound up not staying that long...hell, I was just happy I managed to get my fat ass across the highway afterwards.

That NC State jersey, though...reminds me of one time when I came across an 80s Packers jersey and felt like kicking myself...in my case, I didn't have enough dosh...but anyway, I'll tell you what, @ChicagoOakland, just like I'll never see that particular jersey again, that NC State jersey is probably long gone by now.

You're a lucky guy, I've been wanting that jersey for years, but on a topic-related note I found a like-new reebok Julio Jones Falcons jersey for $1, will try to post pics tomorrow.

Another decent find for the second day in a row! Got this Russia Euro 2012 jersey for $4.49. It doesn't even look like it's been worn. I might try and sell it though, as I can see it's going for much higher on eBay right now.

Welp, the NC State game worn jersey I passed up was snatched up by someone else. Live look inside my brain right now:

raw

 

It wasn't a total loss though; I couldn't pass up Bucco Bruce in all his creamsicle glory for $5.

You mean me? Oh, I still post on this thread every so often. For instance, I recently found a few caps. :D

....IT WAS GONE. That was a bad day.

Snagged a youth XL Red Wings Lidstrom jersey yesterday. Home red, with the C. $7.99. It was on the same rack as a Pistons promotional giveaway jersey which was $6.99. Someone messed that up.

I found a Yomiuri Giants jersey for $30 today, but I passed it up. It was too small for me.
