Hey guys I was wondering what you're doing for jerseys for the stadium series game. Are you buying the retros at the devils den and getting the patch sewn on? Not sure where I want to buy my jersey and get it customized. Also, if I have a CCM classics jersey from a few years back, is that the same one they are wearing at the game? Is there a difference between the two?
I took the below photo (on 1/3/14) of the Stadium Series jerseys that they're selling at the Devils Den. Based on the logo, they appear to be the replica CCM "Team Classics" version that they sell ever year. Side note: THANK GOD THERE'S NO CHROME LOGO!
Anyways, I'm not a fan of buying the jerseys from the Devils Den because they are expensive as hell and they heat press the nameplates/numbers on the jerseys (which also have the incorrect fonts btw). If you're in the NNJ area, you might want to check out Sports Minded Unlimited in Warren as I'm pretty sure they have a bunch of Stadium Series jerseys.
Also, the jerseys that are for sale to the public are CCM replicas and have the cut/sizing of CCM jerseys that were worn prior to the 2007 Reebok jersey modification. The Devils players wear an EDGE version of the jersey, which is cut differently, like the currently worn NHL jerseys:
To my knowledge, Reebok only released the authentic EDGE version of the jersey during the first year that the Devils had the vintage jersey night in 2010. I've scoured the internet for a few years and was only recently able to find someone willing to sell one of these puppies. I'm having the jersey stitched by Exclusive Pro Sports. The problem, however, is that I sent it to them before Thanksgiving and they still haven't finished it up. The quality, which is as good as you get considering they sew the Devils gameworn jerseys, is well worth the wait, but I want to be able to wear this jersey for the Stadium Series game!
