but I'm basically chasing things I missed out on in my youth due to geography and lack of funds. I'm trying to stay relatively targeted.

More relevance. You're in Aus as well right?

Yes mate I am.

Sorry, what was the "more relevance" in relation to?

Too easy mate, we should maybe team up on JB deals in future.

I was referring to geographical location and lack of funds; it was so hard to get jerseys here for so long

I feel your pain. Might be able to team up yes, though I'm not purchasing that often. Trying to stay focused.

Where are you? I'm in Bris-Vegas. Won't be supporting the Knights though.

Sydney mate. I've been pretty active lately, my bank account could use a hiatus. Was more thinking of any clearances.

What are you focused on?

My focus is 1990-93 ultrafil authentics/GW/GI/TI (which is not likely to come through JB I know). In addition I'd like a 90/91 North Stars GI/GW (if only they were ultrafil those jerseys would be perfect) if possible, no particular player. I believe I'm not alone there.

Am thinking I should get a McDavid (blue). It just seems the right thing to do but, not a high priority.

Having said that, I'm still thinking about Pens GI/TIs from last season. I have one (home cup final GI), and am thinking I should get a matching away from the playoffs (since Cup finals were given to the players) which is going to hammer me funds wise if I even manage it.

Yep, not gonna be a JB issue anytime soon.

Definitely not alone in your desire to own Ultrafil jerseys.

You really had to go there? I just can't explain how I went from being an angry Bruins fan (suck, 2010) to a connoisseur of all things Philadelphia. 

I am here to say, though, I will never own a Vancouver jersey.

Someone jump in the DeLorean, go to 2019, find the old Dr_Puck from the future, and see if he has any Vancouver jerseys, please.

I know I have a problem.  I never feel completely satisfied.  I have 5 new jerseys that I will be posting soon once I get them all ready.  One is very rare, some have been ones that have been on my want list that I finally found. But the hunt continues.  Lately, I have been on a eBay slump.  Some jerseys that I have missed out on that I wish I would have won. And when I miss out on one, I get this stupid depressed feeling.  Why didn't I bid more, that jersey should have been mine, blah...blah...blah.

"My name is Brent and I am a jersey addict." 

That felt so good to admit.

I was going to say no Devils jerseys at all but then I remembered FuriousD has a Devs jersey that will eventually make its way into my collection.

I can only say it about one team. There's no way on earth you will ever see me with a Rangers jersey.

I said the same thing to myself about a Penguins jersey. but I still have a Lemieux.  For me, for the other teams, it's more about the player.  The only pens jerseys I would ever see myself owning are Lemieux or Jagr.  Rangers would have to be a Gretzky or Messier.  It's Jersification at its finest :)

Doesn't it just make your heart sink when you add up the postage over a 6 month period......

I wish I could say it was my first year, that may excuse things a bit. It's just been, um, let's say productive in finding a bunch of jerseys on the ever evolving want list.

Yup that's why we should still be wearing home whites and our dark jerseys on the road.
