if there were the 100 Commandments of Jersey Collecting" a few would be


-All thing Vesey and Sprong belong to Morten

-Casey must be an a******

-Jake Marty must comment on everything

-Everything Rangers goalie related belongs to @thebiggoalie

I’ll just take everyone’s very overpriced Labarbera crap.

So I see more and more posts in the groups along the lines of "Greed is killing this hobby."  Are others feeling the same way too?

TBH I wish there was more greed in this hobby as it would make some of my sales quicker lol.

I must have some of these people blocked but I have noticed it in spots. Heck, I agree with that idea to an extent. Also think it's the problem of decency, follow up and courtesy, but that's not a jersey-specific problem.

It was in a post related to where someone was selling an item and their asking price was significantly higher than what the seller recently paid for it.

Yeah the follow up and courtesy is an issue.  I can't begin to count the number of times people ask me all sorts of questions about an item I am selling only to disappear and never receive a thanks or anything.  I think that is more societal than specific to the hobby.

I think in this context, "greed" translates to I want things but i want them for less than people are willing to sell them for. 

I do too. I'd love to buy a brand new car for $5,000. I'm not going to b**** and complain about the fact that I can't.

Yup agree.

While sometimes annoying, I don't have any particular hatred towards flippers.  I mean I do it too and I think a lot of collectors do it as well (even the ones who say they don't often do).

i just sold a jersey to a flipper yesterday.

I stripped a jersey to change the player. I bought a replica jersey ($25 +ship), NHL2000 and 2000 SCF patches ($17), had a buddy sew everything on (free because buddies are awesome), and then I priced it at $139.99 o/b/o and sold it within hours for $120. Buyer has 3 similar jerseys up on eBay for $179.99, he has had them up for that price for a long time and has not sold them. He's obviously flipping. 

Even after shipping it back/forth for the sewing, I made $55 profit sitting on my butt. If he wants to try to make an additional profit sitting on his butt, I am ok with that. I made nearly enough profit to cover the cost of re-doing the initial jersey I stripped, which to me is a perfect resolution. 

I was going to say "which to me is a happy ending", but I laughed after typing it and changed it.
