Jersey: Moscow Dynamo with Collar

For some reason, I always wanted a jersey with a collar.  I don’t know why, maybe because it was different, maybe because I thought it looked classy.  Maybe I thought of it as hockey formal wear.  Unless you are getting an NHL All-Star jersey of a certain era, you probably won’t see many collars on hockey jerseys in North America.  So it was time to look overseas.

Dynamo Front

This is a Moscow Dynamo game worn jersey, but I don’t know much about it.  I mean, I know it’s a Dynamo jersey, but I don’t know what era it’s from, or who wore it.  I do know that it’s game worn.  And just look at that collar.

Collar

The lace on the front was cut or burned short.  I’ve seen this before, like from Derrick Byfuglien (not to be confused with Dustin).

The big logo on the front is “Russian Federal Insurance, while the smaller D logo near the heart is the Dynamo logo.  That’s just how things work in leagues that are overseas.  The business model is different, and the jerseys go into that model as well.

The SV logo on the sleeve also shows up on my Lokomotiv jersey.  I have no idea what it is for.

Shoulder Detail

You can see the differences between this and my other Moscow jersey.

It resembles this Dynamo jersey more, thanks to the logo placement on the front.

If you have a chance to pick up a Russian game worn jersey, do so.  They are some of the coolest jerseys out there, and they are made of different material than what you see on NHL jerseys.  Also, Moscow Dynamo, favorite team of Puck Daddy’s Dmitry Chesnokov, no longer exist.  They merged with another team, and while they have kept the Dynamo name, it just isn’t the same.

If anyone wants to help with some info on this jersey, hit me up in the contact form.
