Gotta get rid of those pesky Reeboks...

That just might be the incentive I needed to attend. Can always eBay it when its not the right team/size. 

Hit me up if a Flyers jersey

In the past they were light on certain jerseys but heavy on others (always saw a ton of Predators, Senators, Lightning and Dallas), but I think with the conversion they will have a good mix.

This is good now. A blank jersey and a 20% off coupon instead of a $50 off coupon.

Can the 20% be used on top of whatever sale prices they run this year?

IE: 40% older jerseys plus an additional 20% off via the coupon?

That's what I figured, but here's to wishful thinking! Will have to see if I can find the Ts and Cs somewhere to confirm one way or the other

No.  It has to be on full price jerseys that are in-stock.  Says in fine print that it cannot be used with any other discount or promotion.

I actually used one for the first time a few months ago.  I was surprised and happy that I saved it from last year's expo.  Basically took the tax off of my purchase.

Very good, thanks for confirming. No surprises there. So essentially just for use on non-discount elegible 2016-2017 jerseys?

I am assuming it can't be used on consignments either.

It can be used on any year, but only at the full retail price.

It technically can be used on consignments, but only if you accept to pay the full asking price.  For instance if the jersey is priced at $1000 and you and Meigray/seller agree to $750, but coupon cannot be used.  If you agree to the $1000 asking price, the coupon then can be used.  Same goes on Meigray-owned stock if you work out a deal for a cheaper price from Meigray.

It would be nice to get out to another expo, if only to meet some of you jerks. The last-- and only-- time I went was when I had been collecting jerseys for all of a month and didn't know a thing about the hobby. I was right near that guy who started trying on Mike's jersey without his permission. But it wasn't me, it definitely wasn't me.

What??? Like it was a department store and he was trying to find the right size to buy?  Someone fill me on this story, I haven't heard it before.

I had no idea at the time that you were such a big shot. 

Honestly, I was just trying to not do anything dumb (like try on anyone's jerseys with buffalo wing sauce-coated fingers) so I didn't introduce myself to anyone.

I don't appreciate the big shot sarcasm. You have no idea how much of a big deal I am.

Man, now I need to get out there and hang out with you. But seriously, for Spudrock will you please regale us with the story of how someone else tried on your jerseys that one time?

Well, let's preface it by first saying that I don't think the guy isn't 100% there mentally. He's a nice guy as I'd met him at previous expos but he does seem a little slow. But he basically took the jersey off the hanger, put it on and had his picture taken with it on. Nothing happened to it; it was just strange because he didn't ask me. I just went over and politely asked him to take it off. He did apologize about it so no harm ever came of it all. It's just a funny story now.

Mike your north jersey accent is very intimidating!

I feel like if I go, it's a rite of passage to snatch something off Mike's display and try it on. It's just what you do after that story.

That happened I think 2 or 3 expos ago right?

It seems like the last two years where they haven't given out free jerseys to attendees have lessened the amount of random yahoos from going to the expo.  A huge majority of them are good people who are at least mildly fascinated by the jersey displays from the collectors, but a small handful always seem to think it's some kind of department store.  I think with this year Meigray giving out a free jersey to everyone again that attendance will probably go up a little bit and we will see more of these people again (which overall is def a good thing).

I'd imagine that's true. I'm kind of on the fence about going, and the idea of getting a free jersey might be enough of an impetus for me to make the decision.

The last few years the price has steadily gone up and the free jersey has gone away. I am guessing that with the $5 price increase again pre-registrations were down, so the jerseys were added back in. They have hundreds of old blanks just lying around anyway.

Also, with the switch to adidas, I doubt teams are going to rebrand the 2.0s and use them in preseason. I do not see a point in Meigray holding onto deadstock pro stock (either of teams that dropped them or teams that changed their jerseys).

To be fair to him though, he wasn't a random attendee. I'd seen him there other years and I've seen him since. Like I said, he's a nice guy. He just isn't 100% there.

And Greg, if you think I have a NORTH Jersey accent, you don't know what a north Jersey accent is, my friend!

I'm most likely making my first Expo appearance this year,

Mike, I will be wearing one of your jerseys for all the teabagging you've done to my Flyers jerseys over the years.
