  1. We are on lockdown but essential operations are still open. Nothing is being enforced. They're just asking us to stay home. I kinda was looking forward to staying home for 2 weeks until I was told my line of work is essential. (dang) As far as EPS being open... depends on if they want to be. Nobody's gonna stop them.
  2. In the early 90's my buddy and I went to the old Chicago Stadium for a Blues vs Hawks game. It was awesome hearing the bagpipes blow our eardrums out as the band went around every level and played Irish songs. We sat up in the 300 "nosebleed" level where, back then you could still smoke. Couldn't believe all the fights on the ice and as I was pointing them out, my buddy tapped me on the shoulder and started pointing to all of the fights in the stands. As we scanned the 3 levels from right to left with him pointing out another, and another my eyes finally rested on the 200 level just below us on my left. There was a dude the size of Lou Ferrigno wearing a Blues shirt. He stood up looking for someone to challenge - almost immediately he got blasted by a woman who was swinging her giant purse, all Hell broke loose, the Blues fan took on any, and everyone. Finally security came and as they were escorting him out one of them must've tried grabbing him - as they scuffled and disappeared down the exit one of the security personal came flying back, landing on his wallet. He sprung back up and ran back into the fracus followed by about 15 fans that wanted to get a piece of that guy. You had to be really tough or really dumb to try and get loud wearing an opponents jersey in Chicago back in the day. Years later in the new building we went to the home opener (which always seemed to be against Detroit) by this time Detroit had started their dynasty and the Hawks.. their 10yr decline. Our barn was packed with 80% Wings fans and they were all running their mouths. I got called out by a drunken Wings fan who was leaving early and yapping his whole way out. When I stood up he turned and walked away. (thankfully) I'm a big guy and can hold my own but prefer to walk away. When I go to games now and see people running their mouth I can only imagine how they'd get their lunch handed to them back in the day.
  3. Really glad there aren't as many Blues and Wings collectors. I can only imagine the jabs flying wild on here. You Rangers and Devil's fans are fairly cordial compared to some confrontations I've had in Western Conference Stadiums.
  4. As I understand it's based off of a sliding poutine scale. We Yanks can't comprehend it.
  5. I have never understood the need to be micro accurate on an authentic. I could see correct fonts for names and numbers because that can be controled, but a reproduction patch when you can't find one that's 100% accurate isn't the end of the world to me. It's NOT a game worn and the older stuff gets the harder it is to duplicate with 100% accuracy. I mean, geeking out about a reproduced patch on a size 46 jersey with Brodeur seems a little crazy to me. In the end, it is your jersey - for you, do it how you want

    The good thing is you all got into a 401k Best thing I did at 20yrs old was to listen to the oldsters when they told me to get into it. That, and become a Hawks fan in 1988 🙂

    I only was checking a few weeks ago because I was about to break a milestone dollar total (even if it is just numbers written in the sky until I retire) and wanted to celebrate. I came up about $10k shy and the bottom dropped out. I knew looking at it was a bad idea and that the market WILL rebound, but the last time this happened in 2001 it took forever to rebound my losses. It's my nest egg along with my collection, let's hope I still have one or both in 17yrs.

    My 401k took a $120k hit. Let's hope I have a job long enough for it to recover. If not.... watch for a HockeyBob Mega clearance sale! One stop shopping for all of your jersey needs! (I joke but my stomache is in a knot) Wash yer dangitty ol' hands people!
  9. I know people are split on them because they are mostly black but I really like them. Nice score!
  10. I believe it's Ultrafil

    I probably don't have more than 23 of the exact same jersey (unless you count blanks) so I am free of being a sociopath.... Right? I bought this jersey years ago for $175. Figured I could clean it up because it was listed as "no rips, holes or pulls" When I got it - it showed TONS of wear and holes in the sleeves as well as on the body. I fought to return it and finally did. Ever since this guy has been re-listing it for $400 + I wonder who told him this thing was worth big $ but it is trash - AVOID https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Toronto-Maple-Leafs-Doug-Gilmour-Maska-Ultrafil-NHL-Authentic-Jersey-54/324041692690?hash=item4b7263d612:g:1VQAAOSw0-5eGPFy

    Probably why you were getting out bid. I hope the original owner gets justice. Glad you posted the link, I was gonna make a move on that one and now I'm staying out of it
