So, even though the Bears suck, I still love them and purchased a B. Marsh limited throwback. ......he was traded to the Jets 33 days later.
Yesterday I decided to customize it...kinda.
The name patch is stitched onto the jersey by the edges only. Otherwise the rest of the backing has a light glue. By pinching the inside of the jersey and nameplate you can peel the name badge from the jersey. You'll feel the glue unsticking. Then, I made a small cut with an exacto knife and started slicing around the namebadge, removing the stiching. Name came off pretty clean. Only a little glue residue by the center top. Gonna grab some acetone to see if the residue will come off totally. Pretty happy with how the jersey looks. Btw, I'm 6'1" 210, and the Large jersey fits great. Perfect length, sleeves are right above my elbows, and it's a slightly fitted feel. Love it.
