    eBay version 4.0

    I've returned jerseys with a list of reasons why, for the most part when I see the item listed again the problem is noted. For example: https://www.ebay.com/itm/VINTAGE-OTTAWA-SENATORS-JERSEY-YASHIN-19-SZ-52-Center-Ice-Signed-RARE-NHL-/193027430629?item=193027430629&ViewItem=&nma=true&si=E4AP1hqJaGTFaEr%2FcfAe%2FPpwNNg%3D&orig_cvip=true&nordt=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557 The origional listing made it out to be flawless with a few stains, I feel fairly confident with my ability to get stains out so I took a swing at it. When I got it the thing had 3 major pulls, a hole and piling It was a battle to return and the seller got more than I anticipated when they re-sold. Maybe the next guy isn't as much of a stickler as most of us here and can overlook some flaws / still feels like they got a deal but I want my stuff to be as clean as possible (kinda why I've never been pulled into the game worn stuff)

    Yup, you got it! I was glad I could spot it in their listing to prove it was a pre-existing condition I got it for $120 The seller refunded $40 I suppose I could sell it for $80 I guess that's what I get for not looking more closely

    See if you can spot what I didn't.... https://www.ebay.com/itm/Los-Angeles-Kings-purple-Authentic-Jersey-KOHO-Size-52/223623761277?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649 And when you spot the issue, what would you put the value at? Trying to return it but the seller listed it as not returnable, trying to work out an agreeable refund stinks For Sale.....

    Never hear of this reference, What's a "Scrabble logo"? Are you talking about the North Stars logo or a different jersey entirely?

    Wow, Not only did you totally ghost me on your Kane jersey we were talking about when I asked for additional pics - you then went on to raise the price of the jersey by $50 🚩🚩🚩🤡

    As much as I hated the collars on the Hawks jersey from 2017-2019 I'm glad to own a pair of the home and road. A 2yr jersey that was never released to the public is gonna be a hard find as time goes on.

    *Dumb Question Alert* Re: Facebook Groups

    I hoard, We know this I made the mistake of posting some of my finds on Facebook pages and almost immediately I get responses to my post or private messages saying "I'll buy it from you" even when it specifically says NFS. Or the, Hey, you got it for $100 - I'll give you $110 It sucks because I finally have a venue that I can post cool pics with ease to do a little showing off and I won't because random people on the FB pages haven't been filtered / groomed with a little etiquette or respect for the hobby. I guess what I've learned is when posting, I'm going to triple what I paid for it if anyone asks.

    *Dumb Question Alert* Re: Facebook Groups

    I want to clarify, This guy was actually really cool and helpful when we talked My only hang up was that I felt he was only basing his offer from what I got it for - not a "fair" offer I could be totally off as I don't know what the value is other than non-gamers. I was worried that I was the jerk on this one as I threw it out there and yanked the jersey away without giving a price out of ignorance.

    Thanks guys, @ jsh139 Not knowing what it's worth is the hard part but I think the consignment through GW might be the best way if I decide to move it. Thank you for that tip! I'll have to look to see if something similar has sold on there to guage a range as well. The whole reason for getting it is that I want a pin head as they're kinda hard to come by so for now it may just stay.

    *Dumb Question Alert* Re: Facebook Groups

    So I have long a FB story that I've felt off about it so I'll put it out to you all for thoughts. About a month or two ago I spotted a pin head Hawks jersey in a group of jerseys for sale on eBay. I made the seller an offer for 4 of his 10 jerseys and they accepted In the lot, the pin head, appeared to be more than just a retail jersey when it arrived so I reached out to someone on the Blackhawks game worn FB page for advice. The other person asked for additional pictures and I sent them. Within a short time he responded and said he felt strongly it was a game worn with pics for reference. I was pretty pumped, we ended up talking on the phone for quite a bit and in conversation I mentioned that a gamer did not fit my collection - would he be interested. He told me he had something similar and was trying to sell it for $2k or $3k (I really don't recall the exact number he gave and maybe he was talking about something completely different) He said he would be interested in my lucky find and asked what I'd want for it. I know ZERO about the value of game worn pin head Blackhawks jerseys from 1987-88 (Darren Pang) I told him he did the leg work to identify it so if he made me a fair offer, it was his. He asked what I paid for the lot and I was open and honest about it. He offered me $350 for the jersey. Now, I don't know what a game worn pin head goes for but in my experience a retail pin head goes for more than that so I declined. He then said "Well, what do you want for it?" Again all I have to go off of is what I know a retail pin head is worth and the number he threw out on the one he was trying to sell. I kinda let it go as I felt he was trying to turn my deal / steal into his own deal / steal. I've felt bad about it ever since as I did offer it up to sell, he did do some leg work before I offered it, and I didn't come with a price but I feel he based his offer from what I got it for and not what it's worth. I'm not saying he should have offered me the "end of the rainbow" price but I feel I could do better on my own. That said, I don't want to burn a bridge or play games with fellow collectors. Most that have worked a deal with me know I'm only in it to play fair and I've never had negative feedback that I know of. Am I one of those FB jerks in this scenario? 🤔
