    Got the fan shop jerseys today. Meh. I have three other K1 jerseys – all the same size and they all fit differently granted one was from VMH so I think one of their higher quality lines. This one has longer sleeves than my other generic K1 Gopher jersey (which I like cause I have long arms) but is just slightly shorter and narrower so I wouldn’t be able to put much other than a thin pullover under it. Of course they aren’t on sale anymore so I can’t try a size up without forking out another $125 (and scheels is out of mediums).

    I think my biggest beef is the patches. They are not stitched on and they are so big and stiff (ha ha) they sit really funny as they are wider than my arms.

    I’ll probably hang on to it in the event I can’t get my hands on one from vmh and besides one can really never have too many Gopher hockey jerseys!

    (This one makes 17 for me now I think). :)

    17? You have a problem.

      I received mine as well. Overall a solid jersey. Why there are two patches makes zero sense but if you didn’t know it was wrong it looks just fine.

      I have a handful of Nike replicas, a couple VMH jerseys, and a Nike authentic that the bookstore sold awhile back. The authentic is in a league of it’s own otherwise this fits in just fine with the rest. To me it looks better in person than online…online almost looked cream, it’s white.

      I have a ‘replica’ of the white alternate with GOPHERS in diagonal and that is a joke of a jersey, especially since I own the authentic and can compare. This jersey is just fine for a replica…now asking them to release authentics is a whole different conversion!

      Overall, I think I have just over 60 jerseys (various teams, the leaders are Bills with 5, and Bucs with 3). About 40 FB, 20 hockey, 2 baseball, and one Irish rugby (as in a team in Ireland).

      Well I knew you had problems.

      Cowgirl I thought was pretty normal.

      Used to know a guy who owned a sports store. Let me and my friends order jerseys for $10 over cost, instead of retail, when he put in his order. Also, the MOA store used to clearance many a jersey after the season, especially when a player was traded/retired/etc. Got a Dilfer Bucs replica for $10. :D

      A Dilfer Bucs replica? Did they sneak it into your shopping bag for free when you bought a bottle of Surge?

      And why do you still have it?

      It was a jersey for $10.

      It’s not worth crap, so haven’t sold it, and when people like you see it, and go “WTF?” it’s worth it. ;)

      I hate throwing out things that still have use. It’s still in great condition, and yes, I wear it from time to time.

      I have some real beauties in the ol’ collection. A couple different Testaverde jerseys, including a TB Creamsicle (crap, that makes it 4 TB jerseys: Dilfer, Alstott, Lynch are the others, modern style). Don Beebe Packers (the player > team). Frank Pietrangelo Whalers (MN alum, baby!). Even a Jean-Sebastian Giguere Whalers (yes, he played for them).

      I will make sure to tell my wife that you have over 60 jerseys to prove to her that my 22 jerseys, 12 Gopher and 10 NHL jerseys with former Gophers, are no big deal. :D

      My stupidest jersey is a Colorado college lacrosse jersey I got for 10$ at their equipment sale when we were out there last season.

      Yes, it was BEFORE the cannabis kicked in. 😂😂

        Geez, I have 52 jerseys hanging in my closet alone and that’s not counting jerseys I have stowed away in boxes or other types of uniforms. Maybe it was a good thing that there wasn’t an Athletic Department garage sale last year.

        To be fair (cue up Letter Kenny gif), I haven’t bought a jersey in about 5 years. The last one was a 1980 replica of a Tretiak USSR. I think before that was the infamous AIC jersey that is hard to find (or was, I dunno anymore).

        LOL I donated my $300 Culpepper jersey. I can’t see wearing that thing again so out it goes.

        I am a purger. No collecting/hoarding around me.

        I *did* give my Kluwe Vikings one to Superstar for a wedding photo. She needed a #5 Vikings jersey, and I hadn’t worn it in a few years, so what the heck. Good cause.

          I’m guessing most of yours are off the shelf? What makes my case particularly bad is that at least ten of mine are completely custom that I went out and had someone make. I know the Ugly Sweater and Hawaiian Shirt ones have gotten noticed, but there are a lot more including some that I haven’t even worn to games yet.

          Vast majority. I’d say 10 (?) are specially ordered/found/etc. For some of my lettered jerseys, they were lettered after-market. Probably another 10 in that category.

          Wait a couple days, there’ll be another sale. With any luck, they’ll even have free shipping.

          They are on sale again and actually come up as the 93.74 they were supposed to last time.

            The great thing is that it includes the spirit gear. My quarantine buddy was disappointed that she missed out of the Goldy gaiter from the Hockey City Classic several years ago, so she should be happy to hear that a similar gaiter is on sale.

                I wonder if VMH had to cut through red tape to do this. The K1 jerseys are always noticeably off, but I assumed that was because Nike wouldn’t let them make accurate ones.

                Frick I wish I was in town.

                There is thing called mail? ;)

                If the price being sent internationally made sense I would be all in.

                How bad is it?

                  I’d be happy to be a go-between. I mail stuff internationally all the time, mostly New Zealand, Germany and Japan. Sometimes it’s easier for a regular person to send rather then a company. My friend in Japan orders clothes from Lands End, it’s sent to me, I unpackaged and cut off the hang tags, then send to her as a gift. She saves on customs big time. She doesn’t abuse it and a few clothes has never raised a red flag. And I’ve sent food to NZ, local treats another friend misses very much. PM if you want a jersey, I’ll get it to you.

                    Has anyone ordered from VMH recently? I placed an order 5 weeks ago haven’t heard a peep from them. Emailed 4 times, contact us link and Twitter DM…nothing.

                    It’s weird because I’ve had positive experiences in the past.

                    They will run big – like the gold one I have. That one is a small – it’s sized to fit over equipment.

                      They are way behind. I ordered a jersey in November and still haven’t received it. I guess they had some supply issues. I finally received a response from Kyle after multiple attempts and I’ll finally be getting mine hopefully in a week or so.

                      This is the issue with VHM. I purchased a Gold MN jersey a few years ago. Love the quality, but since he is basically a 1 man show, it took forever. I’m afraid when he gets the go ahead from the U for the white ones, he will get overwhelmed by all the people that will want one. Wish the U would give us fans an option as well.

                        I appreciate the heads up! I wish Kyle would have told me that! I even said I wasn’t trying to rush but wanted an approximate ETA.

                        He’s typically awesome to work with and does high quality work.

                          The bookstore released the authentics a few years back. I can’t remember if there were multiple types but I grabbed the home white alternate GOPHERS jersey. Love it. Amazing quality.

                          Why was this a one time thing? I feel like people would continually jump on these, especially since there’s usually 1 or 2 alternates every season.

                          I had VMH customize it and it’s a gorgeous sweater.

                          I wish I would have grabbed one of those. Jup and Vegoe has discussed this issue numerous times on podcasts. The issue is people up the food chain sit on their hands and doesn’t feel it is worth the bother of it. I wish Goldy’s would take a leap of faith in doing this. Maybe they could take pre orders to assure that they make money on them instead of being afraid of being stuck with them.

                          Just an FYI– The Bookstore, Goldy’s and Fanatics are selling B1G championship t shirts on their websites. Some have the championship hats as well.

                          It was the last year of the WCHA for MN. When doing the team order for that season, someone with clout thought it was a great idea to order 30 or so extras with their main team order. A few of us were able to get in on this. I ended up getting a road jersey for that season. But all of the jerseys that were not claimed on that initial order were given to the bookstore to sell to the public.

                          [mention]Zwak[/mention] can give you the specifics on the entire background on this. I may not have it quite right.

                          EDIT: You inspired me [mention]biggieb_45[/mention] … I am already in contact with Kyle to have him customize my 2012/13 authentic.

                          @Jupiter has it correct. The team was putting a new order in with Nike for actual authentic jerseys. The bookstore somehow got wind and asked them to add extras for them to sell in the bookstore. Through a connection I found out that the wholesale cost of these jerseys was $150. The jerseys sold out fast in the bookstore. I too was able to get my hands on one.

                          Pretty sure those are leftovers from previous student section giveaways.

                                Aside from already sewn on jerseys, did anyone make and sell the “100 Seasons” patches? Seeing them in person this weekend made me want them even more.

                                Just an FYI. Today only, the University of Minnesota bookstores are having a 20% off sale. They have about 7 different hockey jerseys available (including 2 versions of the 100 year jersey) along with other hockey gear and other Gopher gear. If you need some gear for the band wagon, today is your day.

                                It baffles me that the venders can’t get the colors right. Fanatics are selling hats at their store at Mariucci, that has a skating Gopher that in no way resembles any I have ever seen before ( the throwback or the “Lou Holtz version). They irritate me ever time I see them in there.

                                Fanatics sucks. I usually lean toward the bookstore but that selection is lacking too. I want brands like Nike, UA (just an example), etc not “Gear for Sports” or “Blue 84”. I like the Pride on Ice shirt but only XL.

                                I don’t know why they don’t produce more of the stuff they give players and staff.

                                Contracts. Nike won’t produce more apparel than needed for players/coaches/parents. I don’t get it either.

                                Don’t put crap in the stores and wonder why people won’t buy it.

                                The problem is I don’t think they really spend time “wondering” about anything…
