    *Dumb Question Alert* Re: Facebook Groups

    Yep, that was exactly why. It'll be interesting to see how some of Milt's comments and statements are received once we get past all the "feels" type posts and more see it and take the time to digest it all and reply. There's definitely content involved in that post that could stir reaction and i am genuinely looking forward to what's to follow.

    My policy for the longest time now is to scroll right on by listings with no prices/ask for price (or no price/make an offer). As a buyer, i fully expect a seller to be transparent. This helps in feeling that i am not getting lured into any selling tactics. As a buyer, when responding to no price ads in the past, i've been subject to different pricing based on who/what i collect, bait/switched and negotiated against other collectors who may or may not exist who have "shown interest" to name a few. There are obviously sellers who have much purer intentions that just do not want to subject themselves to the peanut gallery. In this case, facebook allows a seller to turn comments off. I find this can come in very handy when venturing outside the buy/sell groups into the fan based and general groups.

    Not compared to the nice offer i received (and turned down) for that jersey. I guess that counts as more value for my dollar?

    My post was intended to be more of a direct disagreement, but toned down into more of an explanation of purchase.

    I bought Zajac. I had requested him from the start months ago knowing he'd have the "A". Also. being he is working his way up the Devils all time points list made it worthwhile (health wise and finishing the contract....he'll be #3 next season and will have over 500+ points. Playing 1000 games as a Devil is not out of reach, either). Usually, i do not spend this much on a specialty jersey as i go the cheap route player not important, but with this one i didn't mind going for a player like Travis ($50 off helped a little too!). Other players at/within the price range of Zajac (895-995) i did not value as much as Devils (Greene was my 2nd choice though and Palmieri i respected another collector) especially the AHL call ups. IMO, when having a choice spending at a certain price point, i'd rather have the player with the longevity that will have had a solid Devils career when it's over.

    That guy is a clown. The head admin was pretty clear about rules and/or enforcing the scant few that exist. They prefer Laissez-faire moderation. Seems they feel rules chase people away and they'll go someplace else and post instead. It's just a gong show anymore.

    Fanatics is on social media. And they care. A lot lol. You're right. It definitely should be a moment for fans. But, unfortunately, it's a business whether or not Fanatics is involved. There's going to be a healthy turnout at Nico's event even with these rules, so whether it effects anyone much or the bottom line we'll see after. But the good thing is that most events run by the store are on the lower end so you do get the parents and kids and just about everyone in between that come out. It's just when cost goes up 2-3x average, it kind of changes the dynamic a bit of customer and item.

    Our opinions and what is ridiculous or not aside, it all makes enough of a difference to Fanatics and that's what matters most. What he signs, image, presentation of client, otherwise we wouldn't be having this discussion about why he's doing what with the money you are choosing to pay. Join Twitter, Instagram and Facebook and see how many photos of any Devils signing gets posted and with tags. I get what you're saying, but you're trying to insinuate what it should be about at the same time that you think parents are going to be lining up to take a kid to a $59 signing like you described. Paying $59 (or more) for an in-person autograph, that's not a novelty any longer. It becomes an investment of sorts. If you go to enough of these events, and pay attention, you understand that there is a noticeable enough difference between $25 events and $59+ ones and who comes out and who gets what signed.

    Of course it isn't all about altruism. I just feel part of it is trying to hold what their client signs to a standard where the item has to be licensed. That reflects better on the image of their business when a client isn't signing knockoffs, custom artwork projects and personal photos in public view and/or people showing it off on social media. Plus, if you're paying $59 for an autograph you really should get it on items that are worth paying to get signed. Outside of jerseys and game worn/used items there's not much really investing $59 into.

    *Dumb Question Alert* Re: Facebook Groups

    Then Fanatics makes out lol. But i don't think it's completely about just trapping you to buy an item of theirs, even though it's convenient of them to do so. I think there's some aspect of them being who they are that they want their client to sign only licensed items, which is understandable. The problem is that so much of the licensed market goes through Fanatics these days, so really there isn't too much that Fanatics won't see the money on either way. They've got you no matter how you look at at.

    IMO, they're just holding the merchandise that Nico is signing to a certain standard. Which is kind of nice for a change. I'm not sure how many people who haven't already bought a jersey of his will buy one just for this event, but i don't think it's anywhere near enough to create a set of rules for a two hour signing where Fanatics thinks they can cash in that big. Considering another company has flooded the market with signed knockoff/custom garbage for years, i am all for it.

    Speaking of, did you bid/win on any Brodeur HHOF night jerseys? 3 GI's closed under $300. The prices were very reasonable overall as i think a bit of burnout set in. I jumped in with a few hrs to go and got one as i couldn't pass one by in the $400's.

    Yes, one to wear to games, but game worn for the collection.

    The Devils being the Devils of course, the jerseys aren't for sale on nhl.com as of 11:35. Some reports on the fb groups have this a total s*** show already with trying to buy the jerseys. The team hasn't even officially announced the games they are wearing them in (the info came from uniwatch).
