Weekend Update (Last of 2013)

Hello HJC readers. Welcome to the last Weekend Update of 2013!

-----------------------------------------------

Here are the last two entries into the Delaware Pioneers logo competition...

Antonio



Austin (version 2)

The winner of the Delaware Pioneers competition (logo phase) will be announced whenever I receive word from the team. Once that happens, we can move onto the jersey phase.

-----------------------------------------------

The winner of the COTW for Dec 16-22 was Matt Mc!
Full Results
Matt Mc (MIN) - 6
Dylan W. - 2
Matt Mc (COL) - 2

-----------------------------------------------

The nominees for the final COTW vote of 2013 have been listed on the side of the page. You can click that banner to see the concepts, or go to the CONCEPT OF THE WEEK tab. HJC readers get ready. These next five weeks are going to be very important, as far as voting goes. We have this final COTW vote. Then the COTY-December vote. Then the 4th Quarter vote. That's followed by the 2013 Concept of the Year Semi-Finals and of course, the 2013 Concept of the Year vote after that.

-----------------------------------------------

It's that time again. It's time for HJC to find a new writer. We are looking for someone to write on Wednesday's. Dylan W. will be stepping down due to a heavy school schedule. This opens up a spot for one of you. Click the banner at the top of the page to get all of the details and to download the concepts for the mock post. The deadline is nearly two weeks away, so you have some time.

-----------------------------------------------

Are you going to the Winter Classic? Are you in the area during that time? If you answered yes, then we are looking to do a HJC meet-up. It will likely be after the game and we'll try to get a group shot. Email me if you want to be a part of this.


Also, if you're going to the Heritage Classic in Vancouver there will be another HJC meet-up there. That one will be hosted by Friday's writer, Colin. If you're interested, Colin says you can find him on Facebook through the HJC page (Colin May) or you can email me and I will get the email to Colin.

#HJCJerseyShare
Using the hashtag above on Twitter, the HJC Facebook page, or just by emailing HJC readers have shared the jerseys they got for Christmas (or as another holiday gift).

Ted N.
Was given this as a gift as he will be a father soon!

Alan H.
I didn't realize people would actually like and buy these!

Steven G.
 
Vancouver Millionaires. This one is a beaut!

Brady S.
Would you risk getting a jersey of someone who may only be there for one season?

NB14
Ottawa Heritage Classic jersey. Event patch sold separately, of course $$$$$$

NB14
 
Sid Crosby signed jersey. Manufacturing location...questionable.

Bryan R.
I swear, 90% of these are usually knock-offs. This one appears to be very legit! Mario only wore it for pre-season in his rookie year.

Michel R.
Had these Santa jerseys made for his team in the Netherlands.

Jake88
Penn State jersey. This jersey is very clean looking. It's on my wishlist.

Matt Mc. & Father
Matt and his dad are going to the Winter Classic, so for Christmas they got each other Wings personalized jerseys.

Ryan (HJC)
 
Why does this guy get to go last?!?! Because it's my blog. I added my 2nd game worn jersey to my collection. This is Home Set #1 from the 2012-13 season. He only used it for 5 games, but the price was right. I want to do a more in depth look at this jersey. That will likely happen sometime on the HJC Design Blog. I've said this before, but if you're a jersey collector, the ONLY way to get 100% on-ice accurate jerseys is to purchase a game worn or game issued jersey. The Authentics are not the same! Click on this link, it's for MeiGray. They're selling jerseys for $75. They are team issued, Reebok 1.0 sweaters, that never had a name or number put on them. They're not game used, but they're totally worth it to see the difference in quality and to dip your toes in the game used jersey pool.

-----------------------------------------------

Ok, are we all done now? Is your house tidy yet or are gifts and other Christmas carnage still laying around? Either way we should all be back to our somewhat regular routines this week. Which affords you a great opportunity to vote for the last COTW of 2013. Don't miss out on this chance!

COTW Dec 23-29 vote (ends Friday @ 11:59pm Eastern)

Interesting how there were so relatively few entries into the Delaware Pioneers competition. Some of us eternal bottom-dwellers might stand a chance this time!

Got the Hasek jersey. I'll send a picture when I get it. Probably won't fit me because it's an XL, but I'll wear it everywhere.

Brady Sufat said...

Iginla has been one of my favorite players since his days in Calgary and when he signed with my favorite team I knew I had to pick one up.

Matt Ruck said...

Question about the Jersey Comp for Delaware. Can we use a shoulder patch as a primary logo on an alternate jersey.

Tederifico said...

And of course who did Iggy play for back in the day? The Blazers folks! While history suggests that the onesie will get my little guy or girl on the winning track, the present suggests otherwise.

Why can't the Blazers be good THIS year.

@Matt: Yes

@Dylan Wonka - Do me a favor... Send me that Hasek jersey, let me hold it for a few minutes, and then I'll send you the jersey back.... or maybe it'll be a different jersey... I haven't made my mind up
