Everyday a new jersey collection is sent in and I'm enjoying looking at all of them. I'm really looking forward to posting them during the January 2nd Live Blog! If you want me to post your jersey collection, then take pictures of your jerseys, put them together in a collage and email them in!
Speaking of jerseys, this Christmas was very good to me as I was able to order 5 new sweaters to add to my collection! Unfortunately those jerseys won't arrive before the January 2 Live Blog. However, I thought a neat idea would be for you guys to guess which jerseys I purchased. The first person to guess at least 3/5 will get a sneak peek at the new look HJC! Don't just guess which teams, also guess home or road and year, if applicable. Leave your guesses in the comments. Here are some clues...
- 1 is a retro jersey from the CCM Vintage collection - 1 is a Winter Classic jersey - 3 of them are current jerseys - of those current jerseys, none are older than the 2010-11 season
Ottawa Senators concepts (by Stephen)Stephen has used the Peace Tower from the ASG logo and applied it inside the "O" logo. He's also used the 3rd jersey colours. The black jersey is really the only one I like. On the vintage white jersey the stripes look to be in reverse order of the black jersey. As I've mentioned previously, you'll want to fill in the shading on the player model and the stripes go over top of that shading. Also, it appears that the Sabres stitched numbers were attempted to be used here, but it looks like there has been a big bite taken out of them on the bottom right.
Ottawa 67's concepts (by Torin)Torin adds vintage white to the 67's red sweater and he's also added a vintage white jersey to match, with red shoulder yokes. The previous Edge black jersey is used here as an alternate. I'd say this is a near perfect set if two changes were made. First being removing the yokes on the white jersey and second being making the TV numbers white on the black jersey. Oh, and for the alternate jersey, a different stitching pattern would be used.
Colorado Avalanche concept (by Spirit104)Spirit has removed the black from the 3rd jersey and added "Avalanche red" sleeve striping. This jersey isn't great, but it's also not bad. I sort of feel indifferent towards this one. I like the execution though. Personally I'm not a huge fan of jerseys that read "ABCDE #12" on the back, but that's only a personal preference.
Tampa Bay Lightning concept (by Jack)I think this is a great combination of old and new as far as a Lightning concept goes! I really like the striping design on the sleeves as well. I can't even think of anything I don't like about this one. Great job Jack!
Chicago Blackhawks concept (by Scott)Scott has made a mash-up Hawks logo and placed it on the original black 3rd jersey. This is decent except I'd like the "native head" logo to fit inside the red circle. What if you kept the "native head" logo as the primary and move the tomahawk logo into the circle script logo (as a shoulder patch)?
Calgary Flames concepts (by Brandon C.)These are really great Flames concepts and nice work with the player model as well! The one adjustment that would make them a 10/10 to me would be to remove the double yoke outline and the red sweater. Still, great concepts and well executed. COTW nomination from me!
Oklahoma City Barons concept (by HJC)What started out as an Oilers concept quickly became a Barons concept. I didn't think the bronze would work on the shoulders at first, but then I added the thicker white outline and I was pretty happy with it.
Quebec Nordiques concepts (by Justin)I really like the home sweater, but the road sweater loses me with the blue side panels. In my opinion, blue yokes would have looked better. Perhaps someone could explain the ship reference in the logo to me?
Regina Pats concepts (by Kevin) Description on the concepts.
New York Islanders concept (by Avi)You know I'm going to say it, but here's another black Isles concept that is better than what they use! The stripes are somewhat unique, yet classic. The "four stripe" shoulder patch looks great on this jersey as well!
Finally, don't expect a tutorial this weekend, with it being New Year's Eve and all.
