  1. I think I’m turning a corner on collecting

    This perfectly encapsulates my mindset. This was a very active year for me in terms of buying and selling. However, I've finally stopped the impulse buys and the "rescue my budget" sales. Once you skip one or two purchases, it's easier to look past the other deals.
  2. eBay version 4.0

    The USPS did its best to give me agita. I printed a label that had the "From" section relatively centered on the priority box, and the "To" section slightly off center and to the right. The package was nearly returned to me before someone finally got it to the buyer because of the address placement. The buyer was really good about it and commended me for using a ziplock bag for the jersey. Apparently my jersey got tossed around quite a bit and the box damaged.
  3. I think I’m turning a corner on collecting

    My friend mftiz, I say this as respectfully as an anonymous Internet person can ... I wonder if you have flipper's disease. Your posts in the "It arrived thread" might as well be auto-linked to your sales thread given how quickly you sometimes move things. Might that be contributing to the waning interest? It has for me. I've begun unloading a few of the impulse buys from this year and frankly, it's taking the zest out of buying on a week-to-week basis and the thrill of the search. Some of my favorite jerseys in the collection are ones that have simply remained in my closet for years. Just a thought there buddy.
  4. The Current Situation of the Secondary Market

    Dear non Facebook user: The more absurd the idea, the more likely it is to appear on a group.
  5. The Current Situation of the Secondary Market

    How long until Meigray's Cyber Monday jerseys end up being re-sold for double the original asking price?

    There's something about the silver that I really like on both. Of course I won't ever admit to liking a Montreal jersey but it's definitely passable. Slap one of Ottawa's original helmet guy logos on that new one and it would be perfect.
  7. The Current Situation of the Secondary Market

    The market has perked up, slightly. However, now I am realizing how bloody unfocused I've been over the last several years. The more I sell, the more I want to get rid of the random bits in my collection.
  8. How To STRIP A JERSEY 101

    I want to change this into a goalie jersey. Is it worth stripping or should I just sell this one and find a blank?
  9. *Dumb Question Alert* Re: Facebook Groups

    The best cure for craptastically hot summer days? Sublimated jerseys all day long. The material tends to be lighter and whoa baby, those no-weight crests are perfect.
  10. eBay version 4.0

    I am slowly going toward Best Offers on my listings and just had a classic. $25 on a jersey I have up for $275. Hooray for autodecline.
  11. The Current Situation of the Secondary Market

    The farewell posts on Facebook are indicative of a few things, the shttiy state of the market being one of them. We've talked about this before, too many people simply play the "what's in it for me" angle. I'd rather walk away from a decent jersey than deal with someone who is going to not be realistic ... or very interested in helping out a fellow collector.
  12. The Want List

    The year really doesn't matter. Regardless of year, I'll find a goalie whose name and number I'd want on it. I'm keeping my options open too, I'd settle for some no-name goalie gamer. Looks like this will be my big search for the coming year. Hopefully I can get one for under $400 and get Keener to do it up right.

    I'm just glad I was able to drop another (relevant) It's Always Sunny reference.
  14. The Want List

    Not that I am close to buying anything but what's a fair market value on a green Whalers authentic? Because, well ... I just want one badly.
