  1. *Dumb Question Alert* Re: Facebook Groups

    Pokemon cards??? Please DM screenshot that to me so I can add it to my list.
  2. *Dumb Question Alert* Re: Facebook Groups

    Some of you may know about a certain hobby of mine: I take note of all of the off-topic sales posts that appear in jersey groups. Most of the time, the mods are quick to remove these. However, this list is short given that I don't get all of the off-topic stuff that could possibly link to jerseys (like hangers or mannequins) or get to random things that are included with jersey posts. Often the offending person realizes that they're in the wrong and will apologize, but not always. Since December 2016: *Riding lawnmower *Jeep *Two lamps, one with a shade and the other sans shade *Recipe for corn salad (puck group) *Signed Drew Brees football card *Smackdown belt signed by Carmella *Signed Happy Days photo *Candle holder wedding centerpieces *Entire set of Pokemon cards *Yamaha moterscooter *Alan Jackson collector plates *Dartboard, wireless printer, toaster (one post) *Honda Civic *White sofa *Two pairs of running shoes *Microwave stand *Pair of tickets to see Queen with Adam Lambert *Pair of dishwashers *Mighty Ducks Sweatshirt *60+ 8 tracks tapes *Women’s golf clubs *Orange football cleats *Holiday lights and tree
  3. Meigray Expo 2018

    With the number of $99 jerseys they have been selling on Ebay, I'd be stunned if they did another flash sale. It's too bad because I would be inclined to jump on some NHLers at that price. I was in the process of moving during the last flash sale and had absolutely no available funds. Hoping it comes around again!
  4. Meigray Expo 2018

    Guilty. I tried to force a smile when I opened my no-name Flames player but when people were fist-bumping over Spezza and Hall jerseys, I wanted to cry. Yet for some strange reason ... I want to do it this year.
  5. It arrived today v. 8.0

    A Youngstown Phantoms (USHL) jersey from this year. Yeah, yeah I know it's not an NHL jersey as is common 'round these parts but I have photomatched this to both Youngstown road games in the Clark Cup final. The player scored the OT game winner in game 2 wearing this. This was no doubt worn in regular season games given the wear. There's a lot of heatpressing going on here but it's interesting to note that the crest is made of very flimsy material that's stitched.
  6. eBay version 4.0

    I thought Jason was a goalie? Isn't that why he wore the mask?
  7. eBay version 4.0

    That's the sad reality, unfortunately, especially with Reeboks. I have taken really bad losses on some pretty decent customized Edge goalie jerseys. I won't touch an Adidas at all for that reason, just assume there's no way I'd get my money back. On the flip side of things, I have no problem paying $300 for a customized CCM authentic. For as many jerseys as I sell, the CCMs just won't ever leave my collection.
  8. eBay version 4.0

    I am not very persistent as a seller. I'm willing to take a bit of a loss on the resale market to move an impulse purchase of my own. I believe FuriousD calls it a "rental fee" when you take a slight loss on a jersey you have had in your collection.

    It really is an amazing skill.
  10. Meigray Expo 2018

    Congrats on getting there and best of luck with the exam. Another lawyer from the Tri-State area. You and mfitz should open up a firm.
  11. It arrived today v. 8.0

    As TBG has called me, I am Dr. Dork. On another note, I will be getting a gamer soon that has me so excited, I may go all Facebook and post pics of the box and me opening it. I am that happy to get it. I love the buy it-now option on auctions.
  12. Meigray Expo 2018

    Jones has been to two recent expos, I was there in 2014 with him. I agree, the expo can be overwhelming to a new collector.
  13. Meigray Expo 2018

    What's the dumbest things that fans do? It turns out the answer to that question was the question itself.
  14. Meigray Expo 2018

    My first-- and only-- Meigray expo a few years ago was quite important. I joined this stupid forum right before the expo and really started getting into collecting then. That was the year I asked Keith Jones a dumb question during the fan Q&A and he just sort of stared at me. Embarrassment aside, I enjoyed it. If I weren't halfway across the country, I'd go and really soak it up this year. Knowing the ropes would ease the stress of it.
  15. third jerseys are back

    That's what she said. (Sorry, Parrot, I had to channel my inner mfitz. I think he's contagious.)
  16. It arrived today v. 8.0

    What a Kings jersey. Just an amazing color scheme. Great get, Spud. I have seen a couple of those blanks floating around, I am definitely going to get one eventually.
  17. *Dumb Question Alert* Re: Facebook Groups

    Mfitz, you're a thoughtful member of our fine community. Don't ever change. Which is definitely NOT what she said.
  18. *Dumb Question Alert* Re: Facebook Groups

    That's what she said.
  19. *Dumb Question Alert* Re: Facebook Groups

    This thread is now 67 pages long. That's a lot of venting!
  20. MeiGray Group Coupon Code

    I wonder if Meigray has any plans for a summer flash sale. I have been busy buying up all of their ECHL goalie gamers on ebay, it would be nice to do it en masse this summer.
  21. eBay version 4.0

    Not ebay but an auction nonetheless. I have no idea if this is legit, so I'll let you all fight it out. https://www.shopgoodwill.com/Item/52765123
  22. It arrived today v. 8.0

    I was in on one Olympic jersey with a local player connection. However, I was not going to pay for a GI in the $500 range. It seemed like the prices were more clustered together than the WJCs back in January. Nice get with the white, but those blues most be pretty sharp in-person.
  23. The Current Situation of the Secondary Market

    Well to be honest, it's really Slim's fault. If he hadn't disappeared, we'd all be one big happy family still. [That's what I said.]
  24. The Current Situation of the Secondary Market

    So ... two out of three comments in response to my post are completely useless. No wonder IJ is becoming a dustbin! And Parrot, I agree. Some of the prices have not come down much on blank Edges. For me to move some of my old customized ones though, I have had to drop prices way down past loss-level.
  25. The Current Situation of the Secondary Market

    Bumping my favorite thread with this observation: At this point we can conclude that the supply has far outpaced the demand in this market. Between GI, TI, EPS and Keener-done up blanks, training camp jerseys, more teams (especially in junior) making their jerseys accessible, military specialty, cancer specialty, etc. specialty, sets 1-3 and playoffs ... There's just too many jerseys out there compared to the number of interested buyers. I've had a couple of reasonably priced gamers on ebay and in the Facebook groups that I finally pulled after they just weren't getting any traction. The hobby is definitely at a turning point.
