I'm going to try to find a pro-stock jersey at some point.


I saw the ones they had on sales at PensGear at the arena. It had Reebok Premier-type single-layer lettings with printed colors, and it was being sold as "authentic." I was shocked. I get the pricepoint is lower that Reebok Indo-Edges, but I can't understand how they get away with calling them "authentic" and not "higher quality replicas." I don't know that there's anything "authentic" about them and, to be honest, I'm not seeing much of a quality difference between the Adi-Zeroes and the Fanatics replicas.

I know that J & J Distributing is going to be ungodly high on price when Set 1 is available, as his prices have gone much higher since the Pens brought back Pittsburgh Gold, so I just have to wait a few years until the Adidas game-worn/issued come down in price a bit. Seeing some of his prices versus some of the prices people are reselling a few-years-old jersey on eBay, people are selling at quite a loss.


I just hope some of the "Made in Canada" versions end up on the market or at Pensgear for a reasonable price. I remember finding a 2010 WC Style Malkin Made in Canada jersey in Pensgear. That was a nice find. I hope the same is true for the Adidas versions.

There is a nice Penguins UnderArmor long sleeve shirt that I have only seen at the arena. Trouble is they want $100 for it. Anybody know if these are available online anywhere?

I need some help. I have the Fanatics replica. It has an extra stitching across the shoulder Vice the authentic. I’m trying to place the 50 years patch but am unsure how to place it on this jersey. Not sure if it would cause problems to place the patch on top of the seam? Anyone have any experience ie measurements from the center-top of the yellow?

Firebird, the problem you're running into is the fact that last year's Reebok jerseys and this year's Adidas jerseys are cut differently. I'm reading your post to mean that you're concerned that the 50 Years patch won't sit right with a horizontal shoulder seam being underneath it. This shouldn't be a problem. It's tough to see in the photo (https://jeffshly.weebly.com/uploads/4/7/7/1/47713979/img-0016_5_orig.jpg), but my Schultz jersey actually has a shoulder seam that runs vertically right through the center of this patch. As long as it's sewn on properly, you shouldn't have an issue.

Right, I also have a horizontal seem (so one both ways).

You still shouldn't have a problem. Those patches can be ironed on first, then sewn on. Are you doing this yourself or taking it to a shop to have done? If you're having this professionally done, by whom? I always recommend the House o' Hockey in Murrysville. They've customized a bunch of my jerseys and I've always been happy with the results, including the patchwork on my Schultz and Maatta jerseys that included the 50 Years patch.

It depends on what you're looking for. HoH is a hockey shop. They primarily sell equipment and jerseys. If you're looking for a jersey lettered to team spec, that's the place to go. If you looking for t-shirts and souvenirs, there are a lot of places closer to downtown. I'd recommend the shops at Station Square.

Has anyone picked up any of the Pens set 1 gamers who'd be willing to give us a comparison versus Adizero retail authentics or Reebok Edge 2.0's?

Welcome again! Can't wait to see pics of the jersey when you get it!


Sorry it's taken so long to post the jersey. I really like it and it was in really great shape! It's one of my personal favorites by far.

I would have attached the photos here, but haven't been able to do so. Below are the pics on my public flickr. Sorry for the inconvenience.

On a side note, I've started branching out into the minor league teams as well. It's been hard to find good WBS Pens jerseys too.

I know that many of the WBS game-worn sets are sold by the WBS Pens on eBay. I've picked up a few WBS gamers there, including one from the Pens 2011 Black & Gold Game, that came with a nice (lie: it wasn't nice at all!) little surprise!

I'll have to keep checking ebay, I may get lucky and find one I like that fits. Now you got me wondering....what was the nice (not) surprise if you don't mind me asking.

There are a number of them out there right now: https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2380057.m570.l1313.TR2.TRC0.A0.H0.Xwilkes+barre+penguins+jersey.TRS0&_nkw=wilkes+barre+penguins+jersey&_sacat=0

I received the jersey two weeks after the game. It was sent to me unwashed. The smell of two-week old Niskanen sweat permeated my house very quickly, to the point that we had to open all of the windows on an unseasonably cold day. My wife wasn't very pleased!

Not that I'm aware of. Only option I'm seeing for on-ice Adidas authentication is the game worn jerseys sold by J & J Distributing.
