    .You might be a redneck if.....
  2. Meigray Expo 2018

    It could have been worse lol. The first year, the grab bag was $85 and had practice jerseys/blank Reebok jerseys in it as the "losers" and Brodeur was the prize with 4 second prizes for a 105 jersey grab bag. There was one attendee who bought two grab bags and got two Thrashers practice jerseys. Never forgot the face although for $85 and a shot at Brodeur it was worth the gamble (the Brodeur was a nice one, too). Then another year, i think it was 2015, Ovechkin was the grand prize. The "loser" jerseys were pre-season and training camp and i heard a story about a guy pulling a training camp of a Caps player that was #88 or 98 or something and fixated in a trance just seeing an 8 before it hit him it wasn't Ovi haha
  3. Meigray Expo 2018

    Might do the grab bag if there's a slot left by the time the Expo rolls around. Never did one of these before and i like the draft set up better then the blind grab bag. I remember the horror on some people's faces too well with that blind set up once they opened the box. At least with the Draft, you can pick your own poison so to speak.
  4. Meigray Expo 2018

    I also think MeiGray has made an attempt to make the Expo attractive to hockey fans alike. Last year, all of the major NHL awards were there (except for the Cup). Attendees were able to take pics and touch them as they are right on the HOF's table. To see any of these awards otherwise, you'd have to go to Toronto and you wouldn't get the opportunity to touch them and take the kind of pics like you could at the Expo. Plus, to be able to meet the "keeper of the Cup" these are the things that should appeal to all hockey fans. Between that, a free jersey and the autographs it's worth the $40 even to a non-game worn collector. I do think to attend this type of thing, however, you have to have a certain love for the sport and appreciation for the living history of it. Not everyone has that. The Expo is basically a museum of hockey history. If we weren't collectors, we'd still attend. It's amazing what is in one room.
  5. Meigray Expo 2018

    17. 10 home and 7 road games.
  6. Meigray Expo 2018

    1996-97. Elias recorded his first NHL point on 12/5/1996 vs Calgary wearing it. MeiGray authenticated and photo matched multiple times. Was fortunate in finding the game program and STH ticket from the Calgary game and jackpot lucky to have found the entire game on video (VHS, of course, then transferred over to DVD) from an enforcer collector only because there were 3 fights involving some popular participants.
  7. Meigray Expo 2018

    Keith Jones was actually a pretty good guest. He definitely took an interest in the hobby and wasn't there just to be there. He spent some time at our table looking at our jerseys as he played against a lot of players whose jerseys we own and talked to us about Elias's jerseys in particular. I came away with the opinion he has a lot of respect for the hobby and the collectors.
  8. Meigray Expo 2018

    LOL i remember that. Keith paused a little bit there like "OK" haha. Ah, no question is really dumb whether it's being asked to a guest, dealer or collector. I asked Bossy what it was like beating the Rangers haha. The first time attending a MeiGray Expo can definitely be somewhat overwhelming as there is so much that the day offers and it can go pretty quickly. Remember our first time there and it was crazy how much hockey history was packed into a small area in old hotel conference room where the Expo was once held. Some first time attendees will come there eager to interact/meet, learn, buy/trade and everything and others can spend their time just observing, picking spots and sticking to only who or what interests them. All of us who display as a collector or dealer are there to interact, help, educate and enjoy doing so. Otherwise. it would be just placing jerseys on a table and saying "here you go".
  9. Meigray Expo 2018

    We will be attending the 2018 MeiGray Expo and have requested a collector's table. This will be our 12th Expo attended and have been fortunate enough to display multiple times. Not yet decided on a Devils theme for the table this year or what exactly we will be bringing, but attendees will be sure to see Devils fan favorites, legends, Cup jerseys, and more on hand along with new additions and jerseys we've never brought to the Expo before. We are working on a Devils surprise that's all depending on timing with schedule/hopeful completion by the week of the Expo (so fingers crossed). Last year was a great atmosphere and attending crowd so hopefully that will continue over to 2018.
  10. third jerseys are back

    Sure they can. Unless the organization/Adidas is more interested in continuity, then the Retro jerseys shouldn't have a change from anything that came before. It wouldn't be a matter of fit, either, although they would suffer from that warping of the hem striping in the back like all other teams. I actually like the thought of flipping the colors of the current jerseys to red/green (someone on FB did a mock up last summer and it wasn't a bad look). Add the green pants w/trim and i don't think it would be that bad. It would come off as lazy and a lack of imagination, though. If they did that, then i would say that it's a continuity thing where they want to keep everything the same look. I don't know about a Devils head or something like that. I can't get on that wagon lol. Maybe the closest id get to that is some type of play on the mid 60's EHL Jersey Devils logo (which BTW..that entire jersey design has a classic look. Would love that)
  11. third jerseys are back

    I wouldn't bet against the Devils doing something different this time around. There's a ton of Devils fans on FB that are scared to death of the concept concerning a black jersey but the time might finally be right with this. If it's done in a manner which flatters the logo and colors (maybe introducing grey/silver for some contrast trim), i have no issue with it. If it's throwing a goat head like Devil on the front, dumb looking emoji with crazy striping or such then i won't blame the masses for revolting (although i'd wind up with a game worn for sure lol). I love the Retro and i think it would look pretty decent in an Adidas jersey. It'll finally lose the dress shirt hem. The only thing i'd be a bit concerned with would be the collar design hoping not to get that polo shirt looking element.
  12. *Dumb Question Alert* Re: Facebook Groups

    Him being "Mr. Devil" and a franchise legend/retired number has a lot to do with it, but it's supply/demand and the prices can/do reflect it. Devils collectors are locking the ones they have down knowing they are too tough to replace/find another. As more newer collectors enter, it'll be that much tougher as i imagine he would be one on their lists as well. Enforcer collectors tend to buy Daneyko, too. We are just thankful we bought up all of ours when we did or when we could. There were two Daneykos on GWA that ended last night. Both are research projects and have been around the block. The prices those fetched with hammer, for what they are, shows me that when a photo-matched, authenticated or otherwise rock solid Daneyko jersey shows up on the market it's going to be a healthy sale.
  13. *Dumb Question Alert* Re: Facebook Groups

    It's a beautiful jersey. The wear definitely shows, compared to Driver's (although i believe Driver might have finally "retired" it from the last i saw him wear it). I could just imagine what that jersey would fetch on auction. It would be a dogfight.
  14. *Dumb Question Alert* Re: Facebook Groups

    The players have them. Daneyko and Driver wear theirs all the time and it's like a tease lol. Driver wears his playing in alumni games. Daneyko's son wore his while singing the anthem last season. I think the last 1995 Devils SCF that came up for sale, either private or public, was Danton Cole and that was a GI.
  15. *Dumb Question Alert* Re: Facebook Groups

    Just speaking for the team i collect, there's been a good amount of Devils 2012 SCF white jerseys and 2003 Devils SCF road red jerseys available on public resale. The 2012 jerseys most likely because there was two sets available to buy and the 2nd set had a tendency to get flipped due to much better pricing (both at MG retail and being part of the MG sales, too) then the pre-order set. As far as the 2003 jerseys, there's currently 3 available for sale and that's a winning year with only one set that was available to purchase.
