Third Jersey Question

Postby darkstar57 on Fri Oct 24, 2008 9:14 am

I know this might have been answered in another post, but it would take to long to find it. Does anyone know when the Pens Third Jersey will be available for purchase?

I am looking to get my little brother a Talbot Jersey (his favorite player)

According to http://icethetics.blogspot.com/ , it will be unveiled November the 6th, so I would assume it would be available for purchase some time after that.

I'm pretty sure this will never happen, but it's interesting to see that the Pens have incorporated a 'vintage blue plaid' look into their pre-game intro videos, as well as prominently in some promos this year (hat and gym bag)

My brother and I were talking last night... how sweet would it be to have their third jersey be vintage blue plaid! :twisted: I mean, it would look horrible. But it would be hilarious. Maybe they could get their whole unis in plaid... socks, pants, jersey, everything.

Just think of the possibilities

LMAO - Ahhh, the Milwaukee Admirals tribute to Bob Uecker!

Those were one weekend (Sat/Sun games) special jerseys that were then auctioned for charity... They were a "tribute" to the Bob Uecker, who used to do TV ads for the Admirals, and who proposed new jerseys similar to those for the team in one of the commercials...

Uecker is still the play-by-play radio announcer for the Milwaukee Brewers, and most of the Admirals owners group is made up of Milwaukee Brewers people, including their pitcher Ben Sheets...

His old commercials were great! I'll see if I can find them on YouTube and post a link later... Think of the old Miller Lite commercials he used to be in, and these were similar...

Seems like he was trying to help answer your question by directing you to a thread where it was already discussed. Is that against the rules?

Okay, so they are being worn for the first time on the 6th. Does anyone know what they look like? I read somewhere that they aren't necessarily the WC Jerseys. Any insight?

I think that they will go public on the 6th, but the first game wearing them is the 15th against Buffalo.

During the intermission of the game saturday night, they did a tour of the equipment vault with Dana Heinze. There they showed the blue helmets and gloves for the 3rd jerseys. Behind Dana there was a rack with powder blue jerseys still in their plastic packaging. They crest on the jerseys wasn't visible, but you can count on them being powder blue with dark blue gloves and helmets. In other words, probably almost exactly as the Winter Classic throwbacks.

If we all knew, it wouldn't be a secret now, would it?

I posted a couple weeks back that my wife called PenStation and the woman there did confirm the 3rd jersey is not the winter classic jersey everyone was expecting. I think it is rather interesting there is a white version of the winter classic jersey visible in the drawings of the new arena interior that were released this summer.

I saw that in the drawing as well, but they sell those in the Pen site as "practice" jerseys, or atleast a version of the one in the drawings.

And Pitts, I hate secrets like this. LOL
