    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.

    The Current Situation of the Secondary Market

    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.

    The Current Situation of the Secondary Market

    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 Current Situation of the Secondary Market

    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.

    The Current Situation of the Secondary Market

    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.

    The Current Situation of the Secondary Market

    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.

    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.

    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.

    The History of the Sens Jersey, 1992-2018

    The Devils book should be easy: Page 1- Here are some boring jerseys. Page 2- They went from green to black as an accent. -30-

    Do I see my Zibanejad in there? I've nearly sold that jersey a few times, glad I haven't done it. Fantastic book!

    What jersey did you wear today?

    I wore a WJC USA gamer last night and the night before I wore a tournament-worn Team Germany gamer to the local barn. It got asked a few times about them over the weekend, which was fun but a little embarrassing. Not sure I like the attention. Also, it's always strange giving a non-collector the quick speech on Facebook jersey groups and Meigray. One of my buddies joked that I am running a sweatshop in my basement to make them by hand.

    *Dumb Question Alert* Re: Facebook Groups

    For serious collectors, I can understand not wanting to post a price at times. The lulz 'look at that stupid high price' comments are seen in the jersey groups, as well as the fan groups. The issue is that there are some who don't post prices in the hopes of starting a bidding war behind PMs. I've been tempted to post a price and close the comments on some of my threads to avoid the clowns. I favor a transparent approach with prices but I understand where you're coming from.

    eBay version 4.0

    It's not just Reddit, "grail" also gets thrown around loosely here and on FB. For those highly sought after jerseys, I go with the DrPuck patented term "nail"-- near grail.

    Clearly they need to enlist a certified IJ Fake Jersey Spotter. I hope you earn a big commission for this!

    I can't help watching the comments in the Share Jerseys you like group.

    It arrived today v. 8.0

    I picked up two KHL gamers in a trade recently. For years I hated the ads on those jerseys but there's something pretty cool about a Russian jersey. The look is distinct, even with the advertising clutter. Nice get, QAR.
