    Help on WHO TO PUT ON THIS!

    I recently pick up these 2 jerseys and need some advice on what to do with them. I had originally intended to strip them and put on more recognizable players, but now I am having second thoughts. I don't follow either team, but I am hoping at some point to pick up at least one jersey from each NHL team,. Plus, I like the green color on the Dallas jersey and the crest on the CBJ one. So, should I stand pat with both of these or change out the players? If I decide to change them out, which players should I put on these? Both are 2015-16 TIs. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks for your help!

    That's correct. It's a hobby, not a business. If my ballpark is correct, then both the non-monetary and monetary benefits of the renovation fell my way.

    Because the non-monetary benefit/enjoyment of the renovation is worth it, right? As long as you're staying within your limits, that's a necessary mentality for a collector who wants to remain happy, IMO. Making it about the money when that's not why you collect in the first place is a sure path to frustration.

    You are NEVER supposed to add up those numbers!! A few years back I did a total renovation of my house. Occasionally someone will ask me what i paid, and the answer to that is, has been, and will always be "I don't know". I could ballpark it, but I would really rather not know how far outside that ballpark the price actually was.

    I wouldn't do that if I were you. It sounds dangerous; like adding up what you've spent, then adding postage considering I'm on the other side of the planet. Oh dear, this is ungood. Back to the original question I have a jersey slush fund of sorts for the really tricky ones to get and the rest are ad hoc. Exchange rate sliding a ton over the last few years has been unpleasant.

    Too bad, you could have gotten 5 first round picks for it.

    Knowing what your pickup posts look like, I'm not the least bit surprised. ๐Ÿ˜… I've never been able to pass up something that I know doesn't come around very often, even if it comes on the heels of some lesser purchases. I knew I'd slow down in time, and that appears to have happened.

    I too only collect authentics, I've had a few try and get me into gamers but I couldn't justify shifting gears at this stage of my madness. And thanks a lot Fitz, I just went back and calculated my spending in 2018 and projected spending in 2019. Let's just say I wish I had the self control to stick to a budget, even without the CAD to USA conversion I've blown JJM4's mark out of the water thus far in the year ๐Ÿ˜ฒ

    No doubt, it is a little crazy, but this is only coming from an authentic collector. I'd imagine being a gamer collector could get a little scary.

    Part of me wants to say $3500 a year is crazy for jerseys. The other part of me does NOT want to add up my purchases to see how much I exceeded that by.

    This year from March 2019 to March 2020, I've budgeted a certain amount I want to spend on jersey, customization, misc. It's the first year I've tried to limit myself to see how I'd do. And I'm not doing too well at all. Only 4 months in and I've spent over 2/3 of what I've allotted. Dammit anyway. I budgeted 2200 for new purchases and 1300 for customization and miscellaneous. So 3500 for the year. Since I only collect authentics this gives me a decent amount to work with. I'm down to 600 for new purchases and 400 for custom work. I'm doing this in Canadian funds too so its more like 2500 USD to work with. I'm finding it doesn't go very far. It's mostly an exercise of interest to track how I do, but I'd confidently say I'll be bending the rules before the end of my one year. Just spent over 500 today ๐Ÿ˜….

    Possible 2019 Heritage Classic jersey leak.

    I will, though, at times, try to only buy stuff from the money I get from selling stuff. I suppose that is a budget of sorts.

    Donโ€™t really have a jersey budget. Just buy what I want until I start to feel guilty and then I take a break for a few months ๐Ÿ˜‚
