Always love seeing your new pickups, the new one hanging in front of a rack full of your previous ones. 

But your lack of matching hangers drives me insane. That's the kind of sicko I am, if anyone was wondering.

lol I've actually been toying with the idea of getting high quality matching hangers for the past few months.  The cost is what's keeping me from doing it as to me they are just hangers.  I will probably do it but start with about 5-10 at a time every month.

Oh yeah, hangers have to match.  All authentics/GW go on wooden hangers.  Replicas and tshirts on plastic.

I use these from Target.  24-pack for $15.99.

24-pack for $15.99 for wooden hangers?  That's a lot better than what I saw where I was seeing 6 hangers for the same price.

Do those have non-slip shoulders?  I moved away from wood hangers because jerseys kept slipping around, or even completely off.  That Lemieux I just posted was a major offender...

Yup.  Not bad at all.  And they go on sale sometimes for $12.99, I believe.

No, they do not.  So, you'll get the same slippage as with a plastic hanger.  But, when your jerseys are packed together they typically don't slip anyway.  I've never had a jersey slip off, but they will shift a little with movement.  Also, these hangers are a little wider than the typical 25 cent plastic ones.

I actually don't like those non-slip hangers (the velvet ones that MFitz uses) because the jerseys are impossible to get on and off.

Yup, I just leave them sticking out the back of the neck while I'm wearing my jerseys. Makes it quicker to hang them back up too!!

:)

Those wooden hangers look great, IF you have the closet space, because those type generally take up more space, which is why I prefer the velvet slim profile ones. Still plenty wide and they hold a jersey very nicely, but you can fit more of them into a smaller closet.

Now I gotta stop into Target later this week and study their hanger department.  I believe the local Target to me is located in the Hanger district of my town.

Anyone else sensing another restraining order in the future?

I'm already the guy there that buys lots of 2.5 gallon ziplock storage bags.  They probably think I am doing something nefarious but in reality it's for shipping jerseys.

What's worse is that I think I would rather have them think I am doing something nefarious than telling them the embarrassing truth.

I'm in Target like 10 times a week so I know most of the cashiers. Three times, I have had a cashier ask me why I am buying so many 2.5 gallon ziplock bags (usually buy 3 boxes at a time, just to make myself extra weird). 

I looked each one dead in the face and as seriously as I could, I replied: "They're the perfect size for a human head". 

Try it, its so much fun!!

P.S. One cashier took issue, stating that the opening was probably not big enough for an average adult's head. Maybe for children's heads...I haven't seen that guy since. 

P.P.S. Don't bother, they definitely fit on an adult's head lol.

Yeah, they do take up a little more room.  The velvet ones are so super-clingy.  I feel like I'm pilling up the inside of the jersey each time I take one on or off.  Guess I could slip them up the bottom. I also found that the velvet ones (at least the ones we have at home) aren't very sturdy and they bend inward a little from the weight of the jerseys.

 I have never had those problems with any of mine. That being said, I did buy the "good" version of those hangers, which was probably a little more money.

This one was on my want list forever. Maybe there aren't many Rbks out there, especially compared to the Kachina style. I didn't expect that the tan part of the crest is suede. That's a nice touch.

I prefer to use the thick suit jacket hangers from bed bath and beyond. The thick ends work well with my 'hawks jerseys, they keep the tomahawk from folding up. They are also expensive as hell, which sucks but is worth, imo, considering the amount of money I have spent on said jerseys...
