Nathan MacKinnon #29
2011-15 Reebok Edge 2.0 (Size 56) – Teame Issued
Rookie Jersey Recreation!
Jersey stripped and cleaned by Liberty Bell Jerseys
Customized by Exclusive Pro Sports (EPS)
I had this alternate jersey customized to the same style worn by MacKinnon his rookie year!
Because of the jersey originally being issued to another player in 2013-14 I thought it’d be fun to leave on the Meigray tag. I had Dex at Liberty Bell jerseys strip off the Meigray tags on my MacKinnon Home & Away (since those jerseys were issued to another player for the 2011-12 season).
I sent this jersey off to EPS in Jan 2022 and got it back in June 2022, about 2 months faster than I expected it!
I bought this jersey on eBay and got it for what I thought was a pretty reasonable price for an Edge 2.0 TI
“Blueberry” Wordmark. The final bid was just under $300, not too bad for a starting bid of $250.
This jersey was originally issued to Bryan Lerg for the 2013-14 season, but he did not make it up to the NHL. I figured this would not be too bad of a way to get an authentic MacKinnon Blueberry versus spending thousands more on a game-worn Blueberry. Assuming that is I could convince an owner of a MacKinnon Blueberry to sell theirs. I thought it was pretty cool that this jersey was issued for Lerg in 13-14, the same as MacKinnon’s rookie year. Like the Silas away TI, I sent the jersey directly to Dex at Liberty Bell Jerseys to strip and clean before sending it off to EPS.
It’s a 56 which is a bit big on me but finding an authentic version of this style of jersey is damn near impossible. I’m a lot less hopeful with Murphy’s Law on finding a smaller size of this jersey. I think there are some jerseys you are just happy to find one of, without worrying too much about the size.
