  1. *Dumb Question Alert* Re: Facebook Groups

    Yeah for sure. Someone has an item for $50, Id be shocked if they take more than 20-25% off.
  2. *Dumb Question Alert* Re: Facebook Groups

    I dont understand the sellers who do OBO but will only take off $25. At that point, why even bother (i.e. only take $775 on a jersey they have listed for $800)
  3. *Dumb Question Alert* Re: Facebook Groups

    This / exactly. I will counter a really low lowball a penny or two off, just so it shows I countered to other buyers. Gotta drum up business!
  4. *Dumb Question Alert* Re: Facebook Groups

    Two big names too. I was offered 10% of my asking price on a jersey today on ebay...first time I have ever received an offer that low

    As soon as I got a facebook notification from you, I knew exactly what it was! Thank you!

    I like the "PM sent" comments, if they have the courtesy to bump the thread. Otherwise, it is annoying af.

    The stones on some of the people in this hobby. Some guy offered a trade of a Monahan Flames rookie for a RNH debut + first goal jersey, to an Oilers fan. Smh.
  10. *Dumb Question Alert* Re: Facebook Groups

    As a heads up, that Kasparaitis NYI was also likely fishy.
  11. DEALS AND STEALS

    I thought about the Grabovski white for the lolz, but no.
  12. DEALS AND STEALS

    I would have bought a VGK at the warehouse if I saw it. However, reflecting on what I spent at MeiGray, and the cost of a preseason WITHOUT a patch, I am better off saving. They dont have the special VGK set patch in the jersey (or at least the Carrier on ebay didnt) and you can probably get a similar deal on one that was worn a full set next year.
  13. Meigray Expo 2018

    Great seeing Kurt, Mike, and Louis in person and whoever else I may have met -- I am unsure whether or not you are on here. Got some good jerseys, but the highlight of the day is, and will always be, going to the Cracker Barrel after (about a 20 minute drive west).
  14. Meigray Expo 2018

    I mean they do "check you in" at the door at the college, but you can go later in the day and say "you already got me." At the warehouse, you can wait in line and they wont check to make sure you paid the $40, no? It is the 07-10 jerseys with the orange sleeves. The original Edge era jerseys.
  15. Jerseys for temp/replacement alternate captains

    There was a random game during the 15/16 Isles season where Clutterbuck wore an "A" and I ended up adding it to the jersey I owned. It had two patches, so I wanted to add the "A" to "clutter" the jersey even more. Get it?! It's a pun!
  16. Meigray Expo 2018

    I don't think you need to "pay" to attend the Expo or Warehouse sale. It is just if you want the "free" jersey & coupon (which will probably have a lot of fine print this year) you pay $40. For $40, the blank is totally worth it, even if you are not a fan of the team. That being said, if anyone gets a 2.0 or two in the Isles "water wing" jersey in any size smaller than a 58+, find me and let's trade!
  17. Meigray Expo 2018

    In the past, they usually don't give away the nicer 2.0s. Usually old 1.0/2.0s of the Preds, Isles, Avs, Flyers, Caps, Stars, Oilers pre-redesigns. It is an interesting theory, but if they marked down the older stuff I would buy and be thrilled to add the few missing pieces. I know my mid-2000 Isles are not worth what I paid.
  18. Meigray Expo 2018

    Even thought they are selling big ticket items, they still need to pay for that inventory, insurance on it, employee salaries, etc. Though, I do think the NBA auctions are strictly commission-based. The stuff that is decades old or survived multiple sales is already paid for. Just dump it and get some of the cash back so you don't need to expand the warehouse or pay insurance on it. Maybe they are saving it for the grab bags. Easier to maximize value that way. But again, we don't know their costs + overhead.
  19. Meigray Expo 2018

    For sure. It is just disappointing. When it is all said and done, they can do whatever they want with their inventory, but the argument always remains the same. They are holding a lot of jerseys that are over a decade old hostage. I don't see the point in not marking down 6100 cuts / pre-first lockout gamers / pre-Edge down to 60%+. I am sorry an Oleg Kvasha isnt a $350 ever, especially not now (I offered them $160 for one, maybe 2 years ago and they said no). In how many industries is inventory that is 10+ years old worth the same as it was when it was first put out for sale?
  20. Meigray Expo 2018

    Stuff doesn't sell 50% off --> Let's make it BOGO so people need to buy 2 jerseys!!! Stuff doesn't sell BOGO --> Let's make the sale only 40%
  21. Adidas NHL On Ice Jersey

    I dont think I have ever seen an IndoZero with screened patches.
  22. Meigray Expo 2018

    Good to know there is a limitation on the coupons. Sorry about that!
  23. Meigray Expo 2018

    Depending on when/where your daughter's play is, you might be able to do both. I think it starts at 9 and ends 4. I plan on calling on Monday to see what time "registration" ends. Generally, the coupon is in the welcome bag. You can literally go, get the welcome bag (with the jersey and coupon) and leave. The coupon is good until next expo. Edit: Obviously you need to factor in your time / tolls. But if you can even make the beginning, it is fun for like an hour to see the exhibits / tables
  24. *Dumb Question Alert* Re: Facebook Groups

    My spreadsheet has the price i paid and what I think it is worth / fair value (I update it every so often -- like now half of my islanders jerseys are worth even less, thanks JT, Okie, de Haan, Snow). Since I started including the FMV, I began to cut down on the impulse purchases that are immediately worthless. Still am good for a few, but it definitely makes you think twice before buying.
  25. Meigray Expo 2018

    Though, if you do go to the expo, you get a 20% off coupon off anything, IIRC. So if you want something from this past season, you can get the coupon and use it.
