Anyone know what material was used for the 08-09 reebok team issued jerseys? Bizarre question I know.

Do you mean the replica, indo-edge or the made in canada authentic?

Does the inside tags state this clearly? I have a few of them so I could check.

I don't recall at the moment, but someone on reddit suggested this:

"During the early Edge years, the Penguins did not use stretch mesh nameplates like most teams did. They just used the same material that was on the shoulder panels, because the Penguins’ shoulder panels extended farther down the back than most other jerseys. So if you have a 2.0, it’s standard airknit, and the nameplate is also airknit, which is quite common, and most major customizers should have this. Even collectors often cut up airknit jerseys to sell as nameplates."

Not a bizarre question at all! A pretty good one, actually!

Many teams use different colors and material styles for their nameplates. I'm not sure that this is the case for *every* year through the Pens history, but I can tell you that for the most recent years (let's say 1989 and forward, likely earlier, but I don't have in-hand experience with pre-1989 jerseys), the Penguins always used jersey material for their nameplates. And Edge 1.0 jersey had a nameplate made of Edge 1.0 jersey "stretch-knit" material. In 2008-09, the Pens used Reebok Edge 2.0 jerseys that were made from the old CCM Air-Knit material (Edge 2.0 was necessitated by the original Edge 1.0 debacle, explained in detail early in this thread), and the nameplates were Air-Knit as well.

Let me know if you need any close-up pics of this style of nameplate. I don't have any 2008-09 gamers, but I do have more recent ones that used the same material.

I made that guy a few offers and he wouldn't take them. 46 is slightly small for me so I passed. Enjoy!

My lucky day then! I messaged him back in Feb and asked about it, was going to buy it and then the virus hit and the world went crazy. Just messaged him again a few days ago and immediately struck. Can't believe it sat there for 4-5 months.

Jeff, do you know where to get the airknit 2.0 fabric that could be used for edge 2.0 nameplates? Specifically white? Pro knitwear doesn't stock it. Thanks man!

Also, just got a francis gradient authentic to match you guys.

Unfortunately, I don't know of a place to get airknit fabric. A lot of customizers will sacrifice a jersey to have nameplate material. Unfortunately, the days of a nameplate being included with jerseys, as was the case with your Starter, are gone. I'd check local customizers, like the House o' Hockey or other hockey supply shops.

Congrats on the Francis jersey! Can't wait to see pics!

Someone on Reddit recently was selling a bunch of 2.0 fabric for name plates!
