Toronto’s Winter Classic jersey?
Remember when the supposed Winter Classic shirts surfaced the Internet? Now this eBay listing has the entire hockey world abuzz. In the listing, it says that this is the Maple Leafs’ jersey that they would have worn had there been no lockout and the Winter Classic went as scheduled.
Knowing what the merchandise shirts looked like, this appears to be legit. Upon closer inspection of the photos provided, everything looks authentic. From the stitching to the placement of the Reebok wordmark, it looks real. The only question is the NHL logo at the collar and why it looks off-center. And it’s interesting to see black laces.
Aside from that, it looks like we have what the Leafs would have worn. But since the Winter Classic will be rescheduled for next year, do the Leafs keep this look? I think it looks great and would have set up a great visual matchup against Detroit.
