Ducks Gameday: Improved All-Star Jerseys

In which Jer uses his proven expertise to improve the All-Star jersey design. Ducks @ Canucks.

You may recall my long history of redesigning jerseys for teams. You may also notice today's post is late, and I need an idea that will allow me to pump out a new post quickly, with almost zero effort...

Perfect!

We all know this year's All-Star jerseys were ugly. You couldn't even read the numbers on them, but I guess who cares since pretty much everyone had the same number anyway in this bizarre spectacle. And despite the jersey being a rip-off of the classic D-Generation X design, they fell flat and everyone universally hates them.

Let me help.

I decided to try to stay somewhat true to the color scheme that the NHL picked out, even though it's terrible. I'm also sticking with the butthole-crest theme of my previous designs.

Introducing a sweater that better represents the spirit of the All-Star weekend...

AS Jersey

I've replaced the cow/weather cloud-print of my previous jerseys with stars, to represent the personalities that make this event shine! And the crest, of course, represents the type of people who give a shit about the All-Star game.

(The original redesign I did was for the San Jose Sharks, and you can see the VERY NSFW version of that jersey, which former editor Megalodon refused to let me use, here).

Gameday

Prediction

Ryan Getzlaf is still hungover from the All-Star draft, which tanks the team. Vancouver wins 3-1. Lone Anaheim goal comes from Ryan Kesler.
