Good find (even if it is a Starter), where did you find it?

Are you talking about authentic, on-ice jerseys? If so, CCM actually made them for the Whale.

It is. I don't believe Starter made authentics. If it doesn't have a fight strap, reinforced elbows, etc then it's not authentic.

Too bad I'd be swimming in a 2X or I'd have a Yankees and Braves too.

That's the funny thing about my local AJ Wright. It seems like all of the best jersey are in 2XL-5XL. Its one of the only times I wish I was that big.

That Dunn Falcons authentic jersey I got is a 2XL. It's big on me, but for $15, it's a helluvah deal for a helluvah guy's jersey.....

Just bought a thread ripper to un-letter a St.Louis Cardinals jersey. It was so easy!

I'm kicking myself for leaving that home Mets jersey at AJ Wright!

Does anyone know a good place to buy MLB All-Star jerseys for cheap online? I've always wanted one, but haven't really seen them at the thrift stores. I've been checking eBay also but they haven't seemed to have much lately. I'd kinda like a plain American League one, any year would do.

Starter made authentics on-ice and for retail from the 95-96 season thru the 98-99 season.

The Whalers jersey pictured is a replica, however.

... though technically they couldn't have made the Whalers authentic in 98 or 99... :P

But you are correct sir, I have a Whalers authentic that I got at the mall/arena just before they left town.

Just make sure that the letters weren't heat-pressed on in addition to being sewn on or it might leave a gluey residue. I had to do major surgery on my Team Canada soccer jersey ($3.99 at VV) to get some random dink's name off it. I kept his number 5 but changed the NOB to Jason de Vos.

So far I have been pretty lucky. After I remove the lettering and numbers I run it through the gentle cycle 2 or 3 times and the "ghost" of the old name and numbers are gone!

Has anybody had success removing the Starter logo from a hockey jersey seleve or the new RBK logo of a new Edge jersey?

I picked up an "authentic" maize Chad Henne Michigan football jersey this weekend for $3 at the local Salvation Army. Still had the original Nike tag on it, $75, as well as a TJ Maxx tag, $14.99 (my usual stomping grounds for jerseys), so I got a hell of a deal. I don't feel right calling it authentic, since Michigan has never worn a maize jersey, but it's very nice. Fully stiched, arm numbers included.

It really just depends on the jersey. I've used dichloromethane (thanks to a suggestion of a CCSLCer, don't try this at home, kids) to remove heat-pressed vinyl letters from three jerseys before. Two turned out fine and one left a horrible glue that won't come off no matter what I do to it. I'm planning to get it professionally lettered with the same number and a nameplate to cover the residue, but it's one of those "waiting until money grows on trees" projects.

Still worth it though, it was a vintage Swift Current Broncos jersey.

Getting back on the thread topic, I haven't found much lately at thrift shops apart from a Mighty Ducks white late-90's alternate jersey for $13. It's unfortunately a 2XL but my best friend was happy to have it.

It was an antique store, I was looking for some records and stumbled across that jersey. Can't remember the name of the place, but it's across the street from Save-A-Lot on Mission Street.

WoW! Good find. I took a look at the Salvation Army there without much luck during my Central days.
