Guy that buys/resells all the game used jerseys told me once that that the Edge 2.0 jersey was first made for Sid after the first game he played in the 1.0. Supposedly he lost some crazy amount of weight just in sweat using the Edge 1.0. The main tech in the jersey was supposed to wick away moisture...which it did so well that it held all the sweat inside the jersey, making the player even hotter.
Being the face of Reebok, he was able to demand a different model, which the company mocked up and drove to him for the following game.
The Edge 2.0 models are now out for sale in retail by the way.
