Someone might have to explain the restoring of the nameplate to me as I see this as being an issue.
My opinions on it differ depending upon what is classified as "RESTORED". Here are what are the two different understandings of the words as I have come to comprehend them.
1) Restoring the nameplate to exactly how it looked on the orginal jersey. Same fabric, font, colors, materials and such were used to create a nameplate the looks like the orginal.
2) Restoring the nameplate to the EXACT nameplate that orginally on the jersey. The same one that was removed is now put back on it. The nameplate is the orginal nameplate to have been worn by the player it is now restored to.
I don't like #1, but I feel it is done more often than not. #2 is what a true restoration is. To take Geoff's example above of the Sistine Chapel: If you are restoring it to the way it was that is okay. If you are restoring to LOOK like it's the orginal way than that is a different matter.
Which has been done to the Peluso's mentioned? Is there any wear on either nameplate, color fade due to wear and washing? I'm more curious than I am being anal about it. I just want to learn and know.
I just assumed it was instance #1 in your post above. How could anyone but the team "restore" a jersey under the premise of #2? If it is the same nameplate that was on the jersey; as far as I am concerned there is no restoration, and it is just a regular jersey....
