bods39 Posted January 11, 2004 Share Posted January 11, 2004 I finally got out to the mall yesterday and was able tocheck out a couple of the CCM Vintage replicas in person.What a piece of garbage they were! $160 bucks andthey were the cheapest material known to man and theywere'nt even accurate. They had the Sabres white,yellow,blue HASEK jersey, man whas it wrong. The nameplate font was way to big, 4"h at least and should only be 3". The back numbers were too skinny and they had a seam just above the top hem stripe that shouldn't be there. That's not how a jersey should be constructed. As someones whose been in the business I know there is no reason why they had to do it that way. The stripes should all be knit in, the barrel of the body shouldn't be sewn together. CCM was making these jerseys just a few years back, why didn't they just make them the same, with that nice thick polyester material, instead of the cheesecloth there passing off. And to top it off, all they od is throw a fight strap in and call it an authentic and charge more. The Sabres jersey is not an accurate replica. It aesthetically looks like it and thay's it. Sorry, I am just really picky about this stuff, CCM should have old files and records, jeesh. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
