I'm sure you all know of this, but everyone should read about it before you buy an authentic thinking its the same thing the players wear.

I read about it during the pre-season and this is the exact reason why you are seeing more and more fakes at the arena. The fakes every year get better and better while the real ones get lower and lower in quality but keep or raise the prices.

Not a lot of people care if a jersey was made legally or in the sweatshops. Right now with the economy people are thinking more with their wallets and less with their conscience. Plus since the authentics are made in Indonesia now, who is to say these are not produced in a sweatshop also?

I got a question for everybody here. I'm looking to buy an authentic jersey, but I'd like to get one of the old CCM jerseys that were in use before Reebok started making the EDGE jerseys for the NHL. Does anyone have any suggestions on where to get one of these? In particular, I'd like a blank one or one customized with Elias's name and number.

I have one thats new for sale for a good price, message me if you'd like. It's an RBK but it's the old style pre-edge that was used in 2005-06 and 2006-07.

It's bullsh!t and I wish I knew what I was buying beforehand.

The long and short of it is there is basically NO WHERE to get a good authentic right now thats current with that the team is wearing.

Here's a random one that maybe some of the resident experts could help me with ...

Having just moved to Maryland, I'm pretty bummed to have no local hockey team anymore (and no, the Caps don't count). Looking through all the defunct Baltimore teams, I thought the old Skipjacks sweaters were pretty sweet. They also seem pretty hard to find.

There's one up for auction at Huggins & Scott Auctions, and even though it looks awesome, I'd rather not blow $700 on this.

There's also this site called Vintage Hockey Classics that fabricates old jerseys themselves upon order. I understand they aren't really a legit, licensed vendor, but they kinda look like my only hope.

https://vintagehocke..._Skipjacks.html

Has anyone ever heard of them? Does anyone know of a better route to go?

The Skipjacks were once the Washington Capitals farm team. Every once and a while you'll see real replicas or authentics pop up on Ebay. It's got to be better then funding yet another unlicensed vendor. There was a GW that ended for under $300 a few days ago.

Yeah, I've seen some of the later jerseys around, but it's the green one I'd like. The later ones just look like old Caps sweaters with a logo that looks like it belongs on a cheesy seafood restaurant.

I'm in no rush, really, so it can't hurt to wait it out. Thanks.

The Skipjacks were the Penguins farm team for a few years before they switched to the Caps, so you might also find their jerseys in Pens colors with the same logo as on the Caps-era shirts.

Ah, you appear to be correct sir. Pics of that era of Skipjacks jerseys seem to be harder to find. This old Mike Gillis shot is the cleanest one I could find after a quick search (though I think he was Bruins property at the time):

That's way less gag-inducing than the Caps-era jerseys. I bet they're harder to find, too.
