semi OT (?) classic maize* michigan hockey uniforms

Submitted by KevbosLastingLessons on December 7th, 2010 at 9:48 PM

I know my last thread was beyond turrible, but I could use some help. Anyone know how I can get my hands on the maize Michigan hockey jersey from the late 90's? I want a maize Michigan hockey jersey, and although I do like the Big Chill throwbacks, this is what I truly desire. I believe these to be the second best uniforms in all of hockey (red wings white being the first. I'm a homer). Thanks for any and all help! Go Blue.

from the early 90's from Cliff Keen.  It is an authentic one all the way to the fighting strap tie down.  It is beyond sweet.

I hate that Sailor Bill cut off access to the authentic hockey jerseys and only allowed for the replicas to be sold -- bastard!  He really hated the hockey program; thankfully, it is the only revenue sport that he did not try to 'help'.

If you can be patient about it, no question that ebay is the way to go.  I picked up this jersey in great shape from ebay a few years back, and I think I got it for around 15 bucks.  I just set up ebay so it emailed me results daily, and I think it took me like 6 months or more to actually get it.  It isn't made by Nike (was actually a Lansing product, which I just realized and makes me think I should burn it) but it has the white lettering and has the block M shoulder patches with the crossing hockey sticks underneath.  I think this one is next on my list http://tinyurl.com/32xjvkw  Good luck.

What level of replication are you looking for? At some point in the last 10 years, Michigan used a design that was very similar to the one you have pictured, and those aren't terribly hard to find through eBay/online retailers. The main differences from the one pictured are /slightly/ different script font, the sleeves have the university seal instead of the block M, and they're more of a mesh material. If you want one that's actually from the late 90s with the "dazzle fabric" (I believe that is the technical term...), those are a little bit harder to come by.

Unfortunately, I ordered a larger size, and instead it was enormous, like goalie cut.  I wear it often to open hockey and have to do the full-blown Jagr jersey cut, otherwise it hangs all over the place.
