    You're correct. It did say that the free jersey was included. It was on the .pdf, not in the registration link/info.

    For the 8th time, my family and i will have a Devils collectors table with lots of great jerseys. Wonder if having Matteau there and it being Ranger themed might keep away the very small turnout of Devils fans who do have interest and attend or anyone thinking of it. Development Camp/Hughes will probably already do that, though.

    IMO, if some of today's buyers put in a little extra work, asked questions (!) and we're willing to learn, then perhaps they wouldn't treat buying from a private seller as such a cynical experience. Less sellers would have their time wasted and end up frustrated in the end, which is what happens more often then not. I think serious collectors who rely on LOA's do so more on a case to case basis then as a general rule. But with the way the hobby is going, i wouldn't blame any serious collector for changing the way they buy jerseys, or MG authenticating every higher end jersey they already own, just to protect themselves from the future buyers of this hobby.

    This is starting to become a pattern with casual or newbie buyers and it's mostly those who really do not want to be collectors, they just want to own a few here and there. They really aren't interested in learning, researching or anything else. They think every private seller is automatically a crook and a piece of paper will somehow makes them sleep better at night. I'm not sure where this all comes from and it's incredibly irritating just how many of them do behave like this.

    Just in! 2018-19 New Jersey Devils Travis Zajac Heritage game worn jersey. Travis wore this jersey in all 4 of the Devils Heritage games in 2018-19. He's one of only 8 Devils to wear the Heritage jersey in all 4 games. Wearing this jersey on 3/1 vs the Flyers, Zajac recorded his 498th NHL point picking up an assist on Damon Severson's goal. This jersey has been photo matched and it has visible wear with unrepaired holes, scattered black marks on the sleeves and a 4 1/2" cut on the front hem that was patched by the team with heat tape (the Devils do not sew repairs)! Love these jerseys and thrilled to have this! (Yes, mfitz, PX's customization of the back numbers is off centered lol )

    No. Creating and enforcing rules will scare people away and they'll post elsewhere.

    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.
