    Unpopular opinion from me: Wear is overrated.

    For her pleasure obviously.
  3. Adidas NHL On Ice Jersey

    It makes the players look cuter
  4. It is good or not?

    While true there are plenty of fans with questionable intelligence, most fans even with half a brain have 1 major priority when it comes to buying a jersey; price. We are jersey freaks. The average fan sees it as something to wear to the game and even spending $100 on it is a bit much for a lot of fans. I know they cry poverty when they see the prices yet spend the $ for tickets, beer, food, etc at the stadium but that argument is in one ear out the other with them. They really don't care. Also I am 100% convinced most fans who say they cannot tell the difference between the real jerseys and the fake ones are either stupid, lying or blind. They know something is amiss when they purchase a jersey for $30-50 when they retail for $200+. Best part is that they both seem proud of it by declaring everyone else suckers for paying full price when in fact they are secretly embarrassed as they call these jerseys anything but fakes such as "China jerseys" and "wholesale jerseys." Adidas caters to these people. They know 99% of the fans don't care either way to make a big stink over it. Most fans are fine with "close enough" and Adidas will keep laughing all the way to the bank knowing that. Fans being duped by Adidas over a $200 a pop jersey is not a big deal, but raising $1 in ticket prices and hell gets raised. Just the way it is.
  5. It is good or not?

    Adidas and the NHL are betting on the fans not able to tell or even care what they are receiving is not what the players wear on the ice. They are largely right.
  6. I think I’m turning a corner on collecting

    I sold 3 last week and it looks like I am pretty close to a deal for another one in the next 2 days. That's 4 in a little over a week after about 2-3 months of nothing.
  7. I think I’m turning a corner on collecting

    The soft market is also putting a dent into a lot of people's purchasing habits. I think most of us either fully or partially fund our purchases with sales of other jerseys. Lately it has been slow but I have seen an uptick in sales and interest in the last week.

    That's why I actually like the no CC rule. The winning bidder shouldn't be the one with the highest credit limit, but rather the one who has the money on-hand to afford it. Plus these days banks make it easy for them to issue bank checks and send it to whomever you want. I did that the past couple of auctions and it took me about 2 minutes each time to do.

    I don't mind people not liking them and I get it. It is just a topic that has been beaten to death over and over again. If people hate them and their rules, just don't bid.
  10. *Dumb Question Alert* Re: Facebook Groups

    Right on cue there is a thread bashing GWA because they do not take CC, which is what they have been doing forever. Stay tuned for the bi-annual thread bashing them over their buyer's premiums soon after the auction closes.
  11. The Current Situation of the Secondary Market

    Also some people are just mail day whores. They get a rush from posting mail days. I also sold and shipped another jersey on Thursday. Maybe things are looking up?

    Good luck to those sellers then. If they make any sort of profit on them then they should be doing cartwheels.

    So when are the WC jerseys supposed to be revealed anyways?
  14. *Dumb Question Alert* Re: Facebook Groups

    I don't get the appeal of GI's as well as the price that some command. I think he had it at one point $1K for a GI Ovi and latest I saw it was $750. I just see them as just correctly customized authentics with an LOA and nothing really more.

    Just sold another jersey and a pair of gloves. Elias SCF gamer here I come!
