    I tried calling NHL.com and the lady there couldn't answer my question so I'm hoping someone here knows the answer...

    I'm looking at getting a new Sidney Crosby jersey. Now I've seen these ones in stores: http://www.nhlshop.ca/Pittsburgh_Pe...Crosby_adidas_Black_Authentic_Player_-_Jersey

    The problem with these is the 87's and the "C" aren't two separate layers of twill (like the ones they actually wear on the ice) but they're 1 layer of twill painted 2 colours (gold with white outline).

    If I order one of these: http://www.nhlshop.ca/Pittsburgh_Pe...ns_adidas_Black_Authentic_Pro_-_Custom_Jersey

    And choose "Crosby 87" will this be like the authentic jerseys they wear on the ice where the 87s and "C" will be 2 layers of twill sewn together?

    I want authentic. Thanks.

    Wow. They seem to have cut corners on the premier 'authentic' jerseys under Adidas rather than Reebok/RBK branding. Pretty sure Reebok authentic was legit patching and stitching everywhere and with stuff like fight straps.

    The product description on the custom vs premier reads exactly the same. I am going to assume they just iron on a C/A also.

    So lame!

    If you want a quality jersey never, ever order from the NHL shop. They've been heat-pressed for as long as I've been aware.

    IceJerseys is always a good option. I ordered my newest jersey from Dick's and got what I wanted.

    Nice. The fact they carry legit C and A patches for purchase and pics show real name plates etc says it all. They LOOK better than other jersey pics in other online shops. Fingers crossed for ya.

    Glad you found a source. Of course Crosby is sold out...ugh...

    For authentic lettering you can order through IceJerseys, CoolHockey, Hockey Authentic, or buy a blank and send it to EPS or Pro Knitwear (who actually does the lettering for Penguins game-issued jerseys)

    It's disgusting that Adidas has the audacity to call their best jersey model "authentic". There is nothing authentic about them

    Coolhockey is the site I've used twice and got their hand stitched option, excellent service.

    NHL.com is cheap bollocks

    I have 4 different jerseys from them. They are simply great if you are looking for the best jersey price with an authentic twill number kit. I can’t recommend them enough.

    Pathetic you can't get authentic on NHL.com. Just hit up the Chinese connect for $15.

    The Chinese, at best, never *quite* get it right. At worst, the results are hilarious.

    I've seen yellow skating pens crests on vegas gold jerseys. It's horrifying.

    I believe Frozen Pond still has their Adidas authentics on sale for $100.10 or $130 Canadian. They’re blank but that’s a sweet deal. I ordered 2 to get customized.

    Anyone have a '15-'17 era home Edge they'd be willing to sell? Will pay market which is lucrative.
