Hi there King's fans. Sorry for making a fanpost on this, but I don't know where else otherwise to post this.
Anyways, I'm a relatively new King's fan and have been trying to get into hockey this year. My friend and I went to a game today (well, yesterday as of the time I'm writing this) and I had a blast. I'm interested in going to another one, but I actually want to be wear a jersey this time. The thing about the jerseys is that...it's really expensive. I think they were selling it for $150 at Staples and it seems it's about the same price on NHL.com.
I decided to look on ebay and found this #17 Simmonds one for around $45.
The player is Wayne Simmonds, who is no longer on the team. I have a few questions regarding the jersey though:
1. Is this a legit looking jersey? I"ve seen a lot of those fake ones online. This one looks pretty real though, Thoughts?
2. What was the fanbase's opinion of Simmonds? While I don't care too much about who the player's name is, I would mind if that player was absolutely hated and despised. For instance, think Jamarcus Russell jersey for the Raiders or Kwame Brown for the Lakers. It's just embarrassing....
3. Uh...do you think a size small would be sufficient for me? I'm 5'6 and 140 pounds. I'm about an average build size. If it's any help, I wear a size small for NBA Lakers jersey.
