Past Players name on M jersey?

Submitted by Shoelaces_Pfft on August 15th, 2011 at 2:13 PM
Does anybody know how I can get a past players name with the number they wore in college.? I saw lots of people at Fanday with them. And I know mden does not do this out of respect to former players.

You can always go on eastbay.com and do the custom jersey thing their or did they quit doing that? I've wanted to custom make a Cone one for a long time but just haven't gotten around to it.

I'm pretty sure there was a post on the board a while back where someone said he ordered a jersey with a past player's name and number from M-Den even though the website said they wouldn't do it and it showed up with no problem. My guess is they put the notice there to discourage the practice but are probably to busy to bother reviewing every custom jersey order.

Yeah, but what if they send someone to your home to abduct you, lock you in a basement somewhere and beat you mercilessly? Make sure you consider all the risks...

I've ordered from eastbay in the past.  They have never challenged anything.  They have some great cash back deals sometimes if you watch sites like fat wallet or slickdeals.

Try and order now, if you want by season start though.  They took 2 weeks on my last jersey.

On one of the videos from yesterday, there's a fan wearing a #5 jersey with HAYES on it.  I want to know how he pulled that off.  The only thing I can think of is that it's an incredible coincidence - the fan must have bought a Forcier jersey and put his own last name (Hayes) on it and then incredibly, we brought in a freshman with that name and number.

...they look really weird.  I don't know if any of you have seen them, but they actually look nothing like a real Michigan jersey.  The numbers and lettering are all out of proportion.  Looked like they had tackle-twill numbers and lettering, as well.  Unless I'm mistaken, the numbers and letters were all screen printed back in Brady's day.

Just messed around a bit on the CBSSports site. This is purely my speculation, but it seemed like if the player is still active in the NFL, they were not available (Woodson, Brady, Hart), but if they were out of the league, or were the space emperor of space, they were fine.
I now have a Biakabutuka jersey on order.

What I would do is call around to different embroidery/customization places.  Most places can do tackle twill numbers.  The hard part is finding a place to do a nameplate.  If you have a nameplate that a place can use as a reference that would help a lot.  I might know someone that knows a place that can do the nameplates.  I will let you know if I can get ahold of this person.

And obviously you can only do players that have graduated as that one group of people called the NCAA won't allow customization places to make nameplates of current college players.
