I'm assuming this is the gift this year; it came in a plain brown box, no fanfare or holiday wishes probably because it was a little late.

There is a cover letter tucked inside the front cover. I missed the letter at first.

Very nice book. About 50 pages, with pictures of all of the sweaters (all originals from some guy's collection) and action shots of the sweaters in game action.

Anyone willing to sell that to me? I am very interested.

Alternatively, is anyone willing to email their ticket rep for me and ask if those will be going on sale anywhere like the team store?

Since I live in NJ I haven't gotten mine yet. I usually get things 2 or 3 days after the locals.

My only suggestion to the Pens would have been a proactive email stating that they were facing some shipping issues. That would avoid any questions in anyone's head about the situation. As a sales guy, over-communication is always preferable.

They send me a plethora of emails for all manner of announcements, Consol deals, etc.

Looking forward to the book.

Um, no. Everything that all of the nay-sayers have said still holds true. The last few years have been pisspoor.

It is a rather cool book. Someone actually put a lot of thought into that book. Layout, picture choices, paper quality... it is all very nice.

Oddly, I got two "picture books" this year. This Pens jersey book and a book called "Cool Beer Labels", 200 pages of label art work.

Nice gift , but as with every representation of Penguins uniform history, they left out the '74-'75 whites, which were the inverse of the darks, i.e., with chevrons. It is thus an incomplete history. Maybe they just wanted to forget what sweaters were being worn when Ed Westfall scored to complete the Isles comeback from down 3 games to zero.

Until just this year I believe, all of them were thought to be lost to time (i.e. thrown out, or forgotten about in the old arena). A local collector was able to track one down and brought it into his collection just recently. It could just be that no one who was making the book knew it existed, or it was found too late to make it into the book.

You can see it half way down this page.

Assuming he shows up to the jersey expo this month, you can be sure he'll have it with him. I think he has his entire collection on display.

This is pretty worthless to me, but can't get something you'll use every year when they're giving the same thing to thousands of people. I think i'm one of the only people around who was really happy with the license plate cover last year. Its only the second thing they've ever given that i've actually used.

I'm a big jersey nerd, so hopefully they'll sell that book at Consol or online eventually. Seems like a lot of work to put into something that is solely a throwaway gift.

Same. You'd think they would.
