    My jersey???

    D'oh!!! I was contacting him to buy a jersey and have it lettered.

    Bob explained how Reebok is running the truly NHL-authentic jersey (Reebok Edge 2.0 Model #7287 ) business, and it's not pretty. Apparently Reebok just does't care much about their NHL merch and only sells the real-deals to the teams. Once in a while the real NHL jerseys will slip out, but not many and not often.

    Hopefully he'll be able to contact you soon.

    Kind of off topic. Has anyone had a name plate replaced on their reebok replicas? In specific on the current white away jerseys.

    I'm thinking of getting a custom name plate, but I know it would be smaller than the current name plate it's replacing and I was wondering if the old name plate would leave an outline on the white jersey?

    Jersey hunting the last 2 seasons i could tell. Especially the hack and slash job with placement of the "C" and "A" on jerseys.

    No disrespect here, just my humble opinion. If you're looking to replace the "NAME"plate, why not have the new name stitched on individually? It not only looks cleaner, it's closer to the actual on ice version that the players wear!

    That would be tough to say. Talk to Josh at EPS (jkliebe@exclusivepro.com). He was a wealth of knowledge for me, and also the reason I elected NOT to send my Doughty sweater (with nameplate) to him for stripping and re-lettering. He told me a lot of places (including the one I ordered my Doughty sweater from) use an awful adhesive under the nameplate, applied before stitching it on (obviously). Many, many of the ones he's seen leave residue that just cannot be taken completely off. Talk to him, and I bet he would be able to make the new nameplate match the existing one so there's no evidence of the swap - and if the adhesive is cooperative (or non-existent), he can even just letter the new name directly to the sweater and it would be to team specs.

    I'm sending off my new blank one today for him to customize. I'll report back once all is said and done...

    This is some very valuable information, and nice of you to share on their behalf. Most people aren't aware that "Bob" at Bobcat Atheletic is Bobby Halfacre, part of the Kings equipment staff. He's directly responsible for the all the Kings alterations, lettering/numbering, repairs, etc. His resume includes design collaboration of the Kings Stadium uni's and more. So, if you're looking for authenticity, quality, and have a bit of patients, Bobcat Atheletic would be an excellent choice.

    Thanks for the info. It's replica so everything has adhesive instead of stich. I fear that it will leave a residue, but I suppose I can still have the plate be the same size, just with less lettering.

    I figured that there might be residue from the old name plate, which is why I'm leaning towards opting to just get a new plate. Also it's a replica jersey so I don't see a great need to have it stiched if it will cost more money and take more time to do.

    Got my jersey back from hockey monkey and it came out perfectly. Only ended up taking them about 4 days from when I dropped it off. Would highly recommend taking it there, u can't beat the price either.
