  1. *Dumb Question Alert* Re: Facebook Groups

    Whats funny is that I reach out on various shirts for friends, and yet I don't think I've ever pulled that expression unless I'm at a point of buying the shirt and waiting on confirmation from them. But by that point, I already know what their price-point and focus are, rather than "jim bob's never owned a gamer and cant make up his mind what to buy but is really really going to buy something, honest".
  2. *Dumb Question Alert* Re: Facebook Groups

    I'd actually allow it as its close enough to being game-worn, but my favorite part was the " Who was it worn by? Any photo matches? " questions. At least its better than the "$500 jersey in the $200 or less Group" or those sweet Pokemon cards.

    False. Devilsguy said he was disgusted by it... Homer was not disgusted by the McRibwich Frog.

  5. Who sells/auctions Blackhawks GW Jerseys?

    They sell one jersey per player (of various sets & colors) via silent & live auction at the convention. This helps sets the pricing for the team for the remaining jerseys, which the team releases in waves (again, typically one per player of various set/color) on gameworn.net and the various Facebook groups. PS. Don't bother bidding on the auctions at the Convention, you'd be better off not running the price up (and very likely losing) but rather waiting for one of the remaining to pop-up on FB.
  6. It arrived today v. 8.0

    If it makes it easier, at least some mid-season additions used green twill for the nameplate in 94/95.

    Consider in the grand-scheme, how few SCF shirts surface on resale... you either buy it or likely never see it again. I only recall seeing 1 Predators SCF shirt in the FB groups since last year.
  8. The Current Situation of the Secondary Market

    I have no say, but as one who does dabble in the random "decent NHLer's minor league shirts"... one reason why I'd not even consider spending that much on that era Springfield Falcons is that its a direct copy of the Columbus Blue Jackets. If it was one of the alternate styles that were not a copy of the CBJ shirts, I bet it would have moved way faster. About 5-6 players that I "would" collect have passed through Springfield and the only one that I actually did pick up was when I got it for $100. Not because I'm a cheap-skate, but because the style is SO bland. --- That being said, as people have mentioned above, non;leaguewide superstar calibre player jerseys are almost at a commodity level now, between the number of sets and the number of years guys play. Unless there's a patch or its really cheap, I think most people are fine waiting it out. This is one reason I enjoy the minor league stuff, the large majority is 1-of-1 stuff. A player may have one of each color plus a couple specialties, but you can literally be the ONLY person to own that team/color/player combo in a gamer (combined with the fact that most teams don't sell blank Authentics/TI shirts). On the NHL side, there's players I would like to have, but when its not "1-of-1" type scarcity, I'm simply willing to wait it out knowing that after this season, player X will likely wear 4-6 shirts this year, then another 4-6 next year, for the next "N" years that he plays. That becomes A LOT of shirts, and in some cases, there's not enough demand from a team's collectors, let alone the guys who collect league-wide (who's collecting 'wants' are likely of a wider gamut as well).

    Did they really use that "C" with Tommahawks? Seemed they always wore a different style "C" that was never found on replica jerseys.
  11. eBay version 4.0

    Depending on how value, I bet he would have countered between $350-375.
  12. eBay version 4.0

    My exact experience as well. Half-tempted to start blocking those people and put a disclaimer as well.
  13. eBay version 4.0

    Speaking of annoying ebay stuff, as a seller with "Best Offer" enabled, I am tired of the "what is your best price?".... like seriously, are you so insecure about submitting an offer that you won't even try? Throw a number down, as even if I have a "best price" of $100, if you offer $95, I'll probably just suck it up and accept the offer.
  14. eBay version 4.0

    You can always block the guy as a bidder and I don't think he can send you a message going forward. My guess is he is a first time seller and therefore ebay/Paypal hold the funds for around a month to ensure the item arrived and the buyer leaves positive feedback.
  15. *Dumb Question Alert* Re: Facebook Groups

    Locally, I know of at least 2 people "hiding" the scale of their collections. One won't let me deliver a jersey to them if their wife is going with to the game, and the other made their jersey album on FB private so the wife wouldn't see it. (Appropriate reference at the 20s mark) Mine, thankfully, comes with me to equipment sales and helps me grab stuff. She's a keeper!
