Great topic!

My first jersey had #44 Richer on the back, was red, which at time was the away color and was made by Starter. The funny story about the jersey was that I recieved it for the Christmas of 1995 and literally wore it once a week for the remained of that school year. Sadly, Richer got traded, I believe towards the end of the '96 season, so the jersey I had wanted for over a year was rendered obsolete a mere three months after I got it.

Still, I ended up wearing the snot of that jersey whenever playing street hockey and going to games but it sadly was only relevant for a short amount of time.

They do somewhat, but not as much as they did back in the day or used to.

Last time i saw what i considered a fair amount of devils jerseys, I walked in there before a Devils/Rangers game in 1998 and picked an authentic ultrafil CCM Mike Peluso red with Cup patch they had buried under a pile. Wore it right into the game lol.

They moved around the corner about a block away while MSG renovates.



Cool and yeah I figured they do not have as much as they are more Rangers-centric with their stuff and tend to sell more equipment than anything else.

Wish I could have gone in at around that time and saw that Peluso jersey. Was it in clearance or something?

I found it on a rack in the back on the side of the store where the cases full of jerseys are (left hand side). I forget how much i paid for it all these years later, though. I still have it and it remains one of my favorite authentics!

"The $297,297 Kovalchuk missed today is money he will never, ever get back. And the more cheques he misses, the better the deal is going to have to be for the players to justify him sitting out. And unlike the owners, the players can direct their leadership to get a deal done regardless of how disadvantageous it is to them."

My first was a white Islanders Bossy jersey, maybe '80 or so. I used to wear it onstage in my punk band until it got really ratty. An old girlfriend fell in love with it so it's long gone now LOL

First jersey was a white red & green blank CCM replica.

First non-Devils jersey was a blank black Los Angeles Kings (Gretzky-era) jersey.

First jersey that I lettered was a replica home white red & black (1st year) which I lettered "STEVENS" with the "C" and the Stanley Cup 100th year annaversary patch.

First pro weight jersey was an away red and black that I lettered "BRODEUR" during his rookie year.

The Red/Green one my daughter is wearing in this picture.. I got it from the pro shop at Ice World in 1984. I wanted desperately to get it customized with Chico's name/number, but mom didn't go for it :)

Blank white Starter Devils jersey. Every year, me and the one kid my age on the street would trick or treat once wearing costumes with masks, then we'd go a second time, me in the Devils jersey and him in his Rangers jersey. We'd poll the neighborhood on which team they liked. We got a pretty even mix of Devils, Rangers, and "Who cares about hockey, take your candy and get outta here kid". After getting a red Stevens sweater, the blank Starter became the loaner I'd give to any jersey-less friends I was going to a game with.

First sports jersey I ever got was a black Steelers #26 Rod Woodson jersey on Christmas from my parents. Later that day, I got another one from my grandparents. While they were embarassed at their lack of gift communication, I was in heaven. I could wear a Woodson jersey to school two days a week without wearing dirty laundry. And you bet your ass I did just that. Stupid kids at school didn't notice one was a Starter and the other was an Apex, so they made fun of me regardless. I didn't care, though. Ah, youth.

Just found an old jersey at my parents that both my brother and I wore. It is a 1990 west Germany world cup replica jersey. It is a men's xxl and when I wore it after my bro in the mid 90s it was a tarp on me then and I just tried it on the other day and it is a little tight now.

I also have 94 Germany and USA blue world cup jerseys too someplace but cannot find them
