If you've ever browsed or purchased an authentic hockey jersey you'll recognize the difference in quality compared to those lightweight cheap-o jerseys. These jerseys were stitched with custom colors - no team in the NHL, AHL, IHL, ACHL, and on down the divisions have anything like this. The patch itself consists of tons of colors - they aren't cheap either. I admit, these aren't for everyone; I had them made for myself primarily and envision only serious fans picking one up. The good news is gift certificates apply to these as well!
