Neat I like the lack of detail....cool style.
Did anyone end up getting the new reverse retros
I think Alexbro got an Ovie one.
you holding out on me, brother???
Yeah... I am. Got a Nicky one for myself and a few others for family members. Went to the team store the morning they were released (or the day after) and waited in line for an hour to get in. Also picked up a pretty awesome hoodie and a few winter hats. Already have two Ovie jerseys and I bought a Tom Wilson Stadium Series jersey when I was hammered at 2am a few years back and I had a Lundqvist jersey in my hand that morning but I figured it was time to pay tribute to Nicky. I'm not big on buying jerseys but these are sweet.
Yeah it is. I will be getting one. Just waiting to see if I can pay up for a team issued one. A game worn will be crazy expensive.
speaking of, I did get the Brooks Orpik game worn jersey for the Winter Classic vs Chicago. Awesome jersey.
Couple more that I’ve picked up, but that was the big one (also a Bobby Gould home GW Red from the early 80’s as well).
I’m jealous of that Backs jersey!
I took a chance and ordered a Ovie retro from a new site that isnt NHL. so hopefully its nice looking
Is one a hoodie?
I would not object to a reverse retro hoodie. Jersey meh.
Top picture is a hoodie and it’s awesome. That’s what I really wanted... the wife got me the jersey for Christmas.
I need a new jersey. Looking for deals online as I type....
Where'd you get that. I need it
Team store at Cap One. They had a bunch. Looks to be sold out online but maybe try monitoring this page or calling the store?
yeah I'll check out thanks. I did notice they were sold out but they might be in store.
I would love a Brooks Orpik jersey. I am jealous. I wore my 90 white throwback around this weekend. I need a Caps jersey with Scherzer on it. LOL. If I only get one and want it to be someone that will be on the team for a while, who might that be?? 43?
Carlson is a good bet. Or Wilson, and depending on what his next contract looks like, maybe Vrana?
I may need a Chara jersey
43 or 74. I’d wager will be the longest.
Reverse retros are growing on me in spite of myself. Gotta see the whole kit in action first though.
Just got my Reverse retro Ovie jersey today. Very pumped for opening day tonight now I know what im rocking now
Didn’t you get a knock off? How is the quality?
They sold out so fast this was all I could find and it looks prefect very happy w it
Just curious, since I'm not a collector of things like this, but how do you verify/guarantee that you're actually getting a real game worn jersey by the Cap player, and not a fake 'game worn', or something that an Ebay seller wore in his beer league to make it all sweaty?
I'd just be too scared of being scammed to invest heavily... guess it comes down to some level of trust?
Their is a few entities that are well known in the market place as “verified sources”. MeiGray is the largest, and they certify it with insurance.
so that’s what you lean on. Without that, it’s a whole different game. And anyone that claims “game worn” without the validation isn’t getting top dollar and deals with the same mindset you are mentioning.
There are others. But that’s the largest. And most renowned. Cant mean it’s 100% accurate, but it’s an insurance policy.
plus EBay has its own insurance policies. You can’t claim “game worn” if it’s not. I’ve had half a dozen that I have returned based on that once I get the jersey.
but you need to be someone that knows this, without the MeiGray
PS — I’m happy to help you. PM me your cell and I can text you back mine. With my contact card. I’m 250 deep w these (game worns) so I am more or less on top of it
I bought a nice adidas brand capitals hat at Burlington Coat Factory for $10.
