  1. Dealing with Jersey Baron

  2. 2017-2018 Jersey Watch

    I can't wait for the 2018-19 new jersey thread based on this. I really like a well-thought out logo:
  3. Comprehensive jersey history

    Yeah where is old Slim? If he's not posting here, he better be writing unabridged awesome history of Flyers jerseys.
  4. eBay version 4.0

    The buyer has many positive reviews and yes, I think they are just a parcel forwarding company. I've never had one of these scenarios, though. Hopefully they will pay and then I can move forward. Just weird to encounter for the first time.
  5. eBay version 4.0

    Another weird ebay situation. I had a company based in the U.S purchase a jersey (technically not paid yet as of this moment) that represents buyers in Japan. They sent an auto-generated message to me about packing instructions before I send to their warehouse. Anyone else have this type of interaction?
  6. Jersey Collector's Glossary

    What's the term for a jersey that just won't sell, no matter how low you price it at?
  7. eBay version 4.0

    Thanks friends. I'm fine letting this roll until Friday with this buyer. In a twist, someone backed out of buying this jersey at the same price from Facebook. Taking a bit of a hit but at least it's out of my collection.
  8. eBay version 4.0

    How long does it take for ebay to start a no-pay proceeding? I had a jersey that was OBO and I accepted a best offer from a very enthusiastic buyer. The problem is, he can't pay until Friday. I don't mind waiting but should he be worried?

    Bullet dodging.
  10. What jersey did you wear today?

    I've sold off many FHL jerseys in the last two years, but not this one. There's just something about a white goalie jersey with puck marks that looks cool to me.
  11. Jersey Collector's Glossary

    I have about six or seven sentimental anvils from various sources. They're generally on the lower-end price-wise and moving them just isn't worth it. That said, if anyone's a fan of Czech great Petr Buzek, I have a wonderful Stars GI that I could sell you.
  12. Jersey Collector's Glossary

    The sentimental anvil- A jersey that's either been gifted to you or you purchased to commemorate an event, yet you can't ever move it. This jersey is typically a blank authentic or a replica that was important at the moment but now gets pushed to the far back of your jersey closet.

    Has anyone ever won an auction through Goodwill Online? I have bid on a couple of things (mainly pucks) but some questionable items sure do get bid up.

    We're all surprised that you beat @mfitz804 to this comment.

    Buffalo's Winter Classic jerseys could look good. http://news.sportslogos.net/2017/11/21/sabres-tease-their-new-2018-winter-classic-jersey/
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. 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?
  21. 2017-2018 Jersey Watch

    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.
  22. 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.
  23. *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.
  24. 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.
