Searching for your 'whale'


Recommended Posts

Got my Blue Jackets jersey today, exactly 24 hours after i bought it. Small stain on the back, but it was listed as "gently used", not "mint", so I'm not complaining. It does have the subliminated stripes. The Stinger logo on the shoulders is a bit small, but other than that, I'm extremely happy. (**) (**) (**) (**) (*.5)

Now there is a whale. Spectacular jersey!

That's my jersey. I bought a blank one from icejerseys.com, got the shoulder patches off of ebay and had the front lettered with the same font for the name on the back and had it customized with Stu Barnes.

Here's my story on the game.

My want list is currently a Germany jersey used in the filming of the movie "Miracle". I have all the rest of the countries, but would like to add the German one.

I'd also like a 1972 Minnesota Twins road jersey. It was a one year only style.

Also a recent vintage Twins St. Patrick's Day jersey. Where did all those disappear to anyway?

FInally, at least for now, is a 2008 Russia "CCCP" throwback worn once at the World Championships. Why on Earth wasn't this made for retail sale? Cripes, if Ovechkin wore it, you'd have thought they'd have made them by the thousands.

Perhaps because the manufactures didn't want to seem like they were promoting Communism? It's a shame, those were nice.

It's sort of weird seeing a hockey uniform for a Communist country (even if it is a throwback to a former one) having corporate advertisements on it.

Happy to show off this beauty.

Quite possibly the single most sought after US soccer jersey every produced. It helps that they only produced about 2000 of them. I'm a proud owner myself as well! Damn good kit!

That. Is. Sexy. I want one so bad.

Why'd they only make 2000 of them? This is quite possibly the best US kit ever!

A blue Garth Snow Nordiques jersey. I have a white blank one, but I'd rather have the blue.

Sorry, best quality I could find for that photo.

And a Montreal Expos blue hat. I know the old red-white-blue Andre Dawson/Gary Carter-era ones are available online, but I want the blue Vladimir Guerrero/Javier Vazquez-era ones. Minus the New Era logo intruding on the side, preferably.

If I ever head up to Quebec after I have both of those items, I know exactly what to wear.

Well it's a fauxback, really. Yes, it has CCCP on it, but they replaced the Soviet Union coat of arms with the current coat of arms of the Russian Federation.

GARTH SNOW was the Man i loved him in his days here in Philly!

He went to U-Maine, so I love him. I think he only played a total of seven games with the Nordiques before they traded him to the Flyers after the relocation to Denver. He spent most of his tenure with the Nords in the AHL.

I'd also like to find a J-S Giguere Hartford Whalers. I'd prefer a white one for Giguere. I never liked the blue Whalers jerseys.

Giguere only played eight games with Hartford and went 1-4 with a .881 save percentage before being traded to Calgary.

So, I went into a thrift store while on my way to work and found the blue capitals jersey which currently holds the title of being my biggest whale. HOWEVER, it was a starter, along with the obvious starter errors (wrong hues, funky capitals script, screen printed logo) and it was an XL. I'm a medium (for CCM sizing) and the thing was valued at 40 bucks. I was considering getting it but I want one that I can wear, and one that is a CCM and with no deformities. Sadface.

I have one of those, size L CCM. Sorry I plan on getting Juneau 90 on the back with the 98 Cup patch on it.

LOL! That's pretty much what I was planning on doing aswell. But with Oates or Bondra on the back.

Juneau scored the goal to send us to the Finals, hence why Juneau. Plus he builds freaking planes!

Well done! How did you end up getting a hold of it?

After a million attempts getting pre paid cards to work with paypal, it was FINALLY accepted and the payment went through after I won the bid. With shipping the total came out to just 25 bucks even. Total score.

I've been FOREVER looking for an authentic Rawlings early 90's Cleveland Indians jersey... Always thought these were among the BEST unies in the MLB EVER... Simply beautiful...

Also, Road Grey PHillies circa 1989... Impossible to find, even the M&N is discontinued...
