Ladies and Gentlemen, boys and girls welcome to the latest edition of the TXHT Jersey Share series that sees us take a look at our first, of hopefully a few, Reverse Retro jersey as we take a look at the return of the Wild Wing jersey from the Anaheim Ducks.
Going into the 2020-21 NHL season all 31 teams unveiled Reverse Retro jerseys that would be worn about 2 to 6 times (depending on the team, and with some teams wearing them more than 6 times), we would see some very interesting jerseys coming from the teams from really good to just outright pathetic. But you can read all about that here.
Going back to 1995 the Ducks revived their best alternate jersey in franchise history as the Wild Wing jersey returned in Reverse Retro form. Thankfully they did not do an orange version of this, as was rumored, and just did a color swap with the teal and white.
One of the most interesting details of this jersey is how the front of the jersey is done. Instead of Wild Wing and the ice being a patch, or series of patches, but it’s all part of the fabric of the jersey itself. It’s a very nice touch, and very different from how jerseys are normally done.
For the back of the jersey the Ducks would bring back the crazy font for the name and numbers, and honestly, they look so much better in the teal with the purple borders for the numbers. Plus the names in the purple just feels so right.
As you can see in the close up photo above, you can see better detail on both the name and numbers. Also knowing that the Reverse Retro is a one release run for the NHL and Adidas, which has been a huge mistake and completely botched on so many levels, I was able to secure this amazing jersey through our friends at CoolHockey.com and as always such amazing quality.
If you’re able to get any of the Reverse Retro jerseys, this one is the must have.
