DevsMan84 - thanks for the additional insights about the Team Classics and Vintage Hockey jersey lines. I guess I've been lucky (either that or haven't looked super-closely) with the Vintage Hockey series jerseys I've bought; I haven't had any issues with construction quality. (Like you, I also bought the blue KC Scouts replica that SportsK started selling back in January of this year; I've also bought the Vintage Hockey versions of both Devils retros I mentioned above and a blue Colorado Rockies replica as well.)
One question for you - how does someone buy Team Classics versions of the retro jerseys for teams besides the Devils? I was looking at SportsK and CoolHockey for retro jerseys, and all of the ones they sell appear to be from the Vintage Hockey line. (On a related note, I know for a period of time a few months ago CoolHockey was selling both the Devils "Stadium Series" jersey, i.e. the Team Classics jersey AND the Devils "throwback" jersey, i.e. the Vintage Hockey jersey; FWIW they had the Vintage Hockey jersey priced lower.) I don't intend to buy any non-Devils related retro NHL jerseys except possibly an original San Jose Sharks one, but I'm just curious.
