    Jersey Collector's Glossary

    A long-winded term: This too should NOT have passed.

    The Current Situation of the Secondary Market

    Says the collector who has eyes on at least three of my jerseys.

    So which teams hold the worst value?

    I can think of a handful of obscure Tampa goalies whose jerseys I'd want. I hope this eventually happens.

    I had bourbon at lunch when I wrote that question yesterday. It didn't come out clear.

    Looking for perspective here. Which teams' gamers have the worst secondary market value? From what I've seen--- and sold--- Ottawa's and the Minnesota's gamers just don't generate much value when I try to move them. Both the Senators and Wild have dumped a lot of reasonably priced jerseys into the market in recent years.

    The pain is real. I'm at the point where I won't even think about something unless I can realistically envision keeping it for several years. Hoping I am forever past the impulse buying stage of this hobby.

    I already sold it. Not a fan.

    For sure! That's how I grabbed my first Devils jersey that I never shared here.

    Good points, Devilsguy. I've sold a few jerseys after a looooooooong time of being off budget and it's hit me. We play a game with our funds. I can't all of a sudden move $500 worth of jerseys to buy that rare college gamer I don't have money initially for, even though originally that was my approach. I suspect I am not the only one who has performed budget juggling.

    Compared to some of you old timers I have not been collecting long (replicas since 2009, gamers since 2013). However, I have come to understand one indelible rule of the market: When you NEED something to sell, it won't. I've been watching the usual places-- Facebook, eBay and here-- and have realized recently that the market is too variable for budget purposes. Most of us will always spend more than we sell simply because it's too hard to predict the market. Collectors who you think will want to buy something suddenly fall off the face of the earth. Jerseys you have photomatched and think should easily move, don't. Market prices in general are down. And yet we keep buying!

    What jersey did you wear today?

    SMH. You don't need my marketing help, Slim! You're big time already.

    It arrived today v. 8.0

    Jersey Packing 101 is one of the more helpful courses that's offered here at IJ. I've learned quite a bit about shipping my jerseys with care. I cringe when companies and teams are haphazard about doing it for my own purchases.

    What jersey did you wear today?

    I am wearing all of my jerseys, every last one of them. And I am still cold AF ☃️ .

    Help with Sharks Jersey Please

    I know nothing about the Sharks jersey in question. However, I'd like to say that the OP has the best handle in recent memory and maybe the best on the entire board.
