When you pay more than anyone else would have paid because you NEEDED that jersey so you were wiling to pay a little extra.

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.

Got one I am trying to move right now and this is 100% truth.

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.

I've got a definition but not the name for it: patches bought for jerseys that aren't in your possession yet in anticipation of possibly purchasing the jersey(s).

Funny part is I am somewhat regretting it.  However in the long run I think I made the right choice.

Is there some sort of jersey karma term I can apply to the following situation?

Found a reasonably rare jersey on EBay I really liked it but wasn't in love as there are others on my list I deem more important to my collection (this one wasn't even on my list). Ultimately I didn't bid and drive the price up to comfortably over what it actually sold for thus allowing someone else to buy pretty well.

No more than 4 hours later stumbled across one I've been after for a while severely under priced.
