Licensing and the demise of quality sports apparel
Look into the crowd pictured below in these famous scenes as Bobby Orr flies through the air and Team USA celebrates their victory over the Soviets in 1980 and you will see no sign of team apparel, no team jerseys or even t-shirts. This was a sign of the times before mass produced licensed apparel, before teams and leagues realized how much money they could make selling branded apparel to their fan base. During this long gone era, several independent athletic apparel manufacturers competed for the business of supplying professional sports teams. This competition ensured a high level of quality as competition tends to do. In the early 80's leagues smartened up and started to realize the pent up demand and started licensing their logos for mass produced fan apparel (remember Starter?). Eventually licensees were granted exclusive rights to supply game jerseys for league play and souvenirs. As a result, quality declined, as tends to happen in monopolies.
We have brought back the quality of a bygone era by using the old manufacturers to make jerseys with a quality not seen in over 30 years, except from us! Some of our jerseys are actually made by the original manufacturers.
Who goes to VHJ for their vintage hockey jersey?
* One current NHL team owner
* One former NHL team owner
* Two members of the Forbes 400 list
of wealthiest Americans
* Hollywood actors
* Ex players from the 60's, 70's and 80's who never got to keep their old jerseys.
* Sons who buy them for their dads
* Wives and moms who get them for their husband or kids
But it's mostly guys like you and I who love the old teams and old school quality. Because we don't really sell hockey jerseys. We sell memories.

That's a rather bold statement but we back it up with our superb products.
In 1972 I was captivated by the Summit Series between Canada and the Soviet Union. My mother had a sewing room and she took a blank white cotton jersey, and from a hand drawn pattern she cut the red maple leaf logos for the front and sleeves, sewed them in place and I was probably the first fan to have their own Team Canada '72 jersey! Thus began a lifelong interest in hockey jerseys.
Fast forward to 1980 and I am in Canada looking at the usual souvenir jerseys at a hockey store when I spot something extraordinary; four actual game jerseys including the holy grail, an Edmonton Oilers road blue. These type of jerseys were unavailable to the public back then and were given to the store as a bonus for making their purchase of souvenir jerseys. The quality of these gamers was much better than the replica souvenir jerseys hanging next to them on the rack and I thanked my lucky stars as I bought them all. On my way home I said to myself "Someday I will have a manufacturer make this type of quality jersey for me."
Now that day has arrived and that old school quality is available for you! Here at

the 1970's and 1980's producing museum quality recreations of your favorite vintage jerseys, some of which are virtually indistinguishable from the originals
