PostSubject: Problems with my Eli Manning Jersey   Fri Jun 15 2012, 22:32

I was wondering if anybody had any advice or expierenced the same problem i am having with my Giants Reebok Authentic Eli Manning home blue jersey. The numbers are shriveling up and becoming wrinkled and creased. Its a real authentic that was purchased directly from Reebok in September 2005. I only dry clean my jersey's i do not wash them myself and have never had this problem with any other authentic jersey. My tailor said that since they are single twill that the numbers have just shrunk a little bit from washing/drying and thats what caused it to look like that ( bubbling may be a more accurate description). Has anybody else ran into this problem? Is it normal for single twill numbers to do this?

Yes it is a problem with single twill numbers, because they are not stiffened by another layer of twill the do tend to suffer from this.

Thank you Simon. Is there any way to fix it? Restore the jersey or the numbers?

I've flattened them out by wetting the numbers and using an iron. Can you post pics?

Yea I've done the same thing as mrhead2k, but what I did differently was I used my iron on a "steam" setting to iron out the bubbles then lowered the setting to "dry" and ironed back over it/them. Just make sure your iron isn't too hot, otherwise you could complicate matters.

If you're nervous about ironing them directly, place some thin cotton fabric on top of the numbers to absorb some of the heat and protect your jersey. I've used a kitchen dish towel before, which worked well.

I've also heard of people hanging jerseys in an unventilated / enclosed bathroom and leaving the shower running at it's hottest for a while in order to steam the whole thing.
