Newtown Square, PA • United States • 45 Years Old • Male

This third jersey is supposed to be unveiled on Friday, November 28th, against the Carolina Hurricanes, and should be flying off the shelves for your Orange and Black fan in plenty of time for the Holidays.

I, for one, LOVE this throwback jersey!!! It has the "traditional" Flyers' orange, white numbers trimmed with black and the white nameplate with black letters - nice old skool touch.

The Flyers got it right and hit the nail on the head. I can't wait to line up and shell out my huevos rancheros to pick up a Richards' jersey (with the C on it).

Here is the link to the Flyers' web site...

Thanks for reading...

They will sell TONS of these. I'd love to see them eventually move this to the everyday home jersey and make a similar white for the road.

I've been waiting for these since the rumors started last season. They are well worth the wait. Can't wait to see them on the ice! GO FLYERS!!!

Glad to see the orange jersey come back. Now if they'd do away with the black ones I'd be happy. Always loved the old orange jerseys.

It's about time! Now I can FINALLY bleed ORANGE and black again!!! These should absolutely become their everyday home jersey's - I could not agree with plots4 more. The Flyers are the Orange and Black, not the Black and Black.

i love the return of the orange jerseys and have been pining for them for years. i only wish they were true to the mid-70s sleeve numbers and black wrist bands. the numbers had a little more detail, were more squat and had a heavier border...much cooler than these generic numbers. and the black wrist bands at the bottom of the sleeves tapered up to a point, while the new ones are generic much more like those of the 80's until now. the original jerseys had very small logos, and i like the size of these much better, but if they're going to bother with details like the white nameplate and plain white sleeve stripes, why not get the numbers and wrist bands correct? it's a crappy oversiight, and if it was done intentionally, then shame on them. that said, again, i'm VERY happy they're back, and not like those HEINOUS ones from the early 2000s until the lockout. awful doesn't begin to describe them and that chromed out logo.

I love the orange but I don't really like the white nameplate. It stands out too much and doesn't seem to fit right to me. I got my preorder form tonight but I'm not sure if I want to shell out $200 for a new jersey that I'm not completely loving.
