A brief history.
In the 25 years that i am a goalie i have collected an amount of jerseys, some cool, some plain, some rare, some not, some are mine, some are my bro's, some swapped and some are gifts, some are earned, all happened to cross my path by cheer luck or due to (my) history taking place and that is why i kept them.
VTJ Pribram, Czech, got this from a guy playing in the army division when i was on hockey camp as a youngster.
Practice jersey from the Canucks, got this from Jim from the GSBB, when he and his lovely wife visited Belgium.
canadian jersey from the winterolympics, i got this from friends of my parents when they went there, in my young and sinfull days i ripped of the shoulderlogo's, which i still regret.
Edmonton oil kings, my first jersey for a jersey trade with ryan from edmonton
and for me a token of a friendship that came from this.
