Which Devils Jersey did you get that you regret?

I always try to take into account that the fan wearing the bad knockoff could be a new fan (who thinks his new-but-cheap jersey isn't bad at all, simply out of lack of knowledge), or a fan who really doesn't have the money for something better but really wants some kind of jersey to wear, or maybe wears it out of purely sentimental value (say, the jersey was a gift from a beloved relative who has since passed on).  And I also try to take the view that no matter how bad some of those knockoffs are (and some are most definitely hideous), at least that fan is in the building and supporting the team.

But yeah, some are hard to look at.  I remember when off-the-rack per-personalized jerseys were a little harder to come by (back in the 90s), and Starter made Brodeur jerseys...since they went through the trouble of personalizing them, I always wondered why the hell they couldn't bother coming up with something that at least resembled the Devils nameplate and number fonts...these just looked odd:

I was in Buffalo a couple of years ago for a game and saw this.  It was so bad I had to take a picture.

Here's what the striping should look like:

Yeah I totally wouldn't be able to pick out which jerseys were a bootlegs at the arena.  I only knew the color of mine was off when it was next to my other official jerseys.  I guess I just don't pay enough attention to that sort of thing.

I have two jerseys. Holik, the year before he walked, and Rafalski, th ed year before he walked. Needless to say, I haven't purchased any since. 

Both still quality guys that aren’t embarrassing to wear.

Yeah those guys won two Cups each here. No shame in those at all. In fact, I picked up a Rafalski jersey on eBay a few years back. I also have a Rafalski game-used stick I nabbed at one of the old equipment sales they used to hold at the draft parties.

Kovalchuk for me.  Bought it after his massive extension, figured he'd be a lifer and it was a safe purchase.

So many of us fell into that trap...

Didn't know where to put this so figured this was the best thread.  Pajama shirt attached, obviously have had it for many years.  Would you toss it considering how worn out it is with all the holes or could you not bring yourself to do it?  I'm debating.

That’s what I was thinking. Hell, the RR’s could be a one year thing and Holtz may never even wear one.

Yeah, I’ll probably hold off on putting a C on my white heritage Nico for this same reason. I like accuracy lol

That’s why I haven’t sent my blank RR out to Exclusive Pro yet- I want to see Nico actually wear the jersey in a game first before I get it customized.

I would sooner frame the shirt and hang it on my wall than throw it out!
