    Meigray Expo 2019

    Had a great time at the expo this year meeting old and new people. As usual, it was exhausting but also a lot of fun. Some quick thoughts/info from my perspective: 1) this year had a high collector turnout. However, there was a low "off-the-street" turnout. I think it was largely due to no free jersey this year. 2) Smith and Matteau were awesome. They were probably my favorite speakers yet to date and this is coming from a Devils fan. Both, especially Smith, were extremely candid in what they told us. Let's just say there was no love lost between him and Keenan lol. 3) I got a copy of Slim's Sens book from Marc. Thanks Marc and Slim! 4) I was put in the front row between George's Flyers table and Jeff's caps table. Really neat stuff from all of them. Everyone had great tables as usual and some really nice stuff. Very impressed with Tyler's table this year with his Sakic, Lemieux and of course, Wild Wing Selanne. Brilliant had his table filled with Team USA and soccer goodies. I really liked peaking through the soccer gamers. 5) I actually had a theme this year instead of just greatest hits. Theme was jerseys from 90-91 through 99-00 season. Later on in the afternoon I put some of the greatest hits jerseys out to change things up and left a decent amount at home as well. 6) Smith showed us a never used Proplayer prototype they were going to use in 99-00 season. It's a throwback to their 46-47 season IIRC. 7) I went to the warehouse sale and picked up a couple of unathebticated game used pucks for $5 each. Got a couple things for my brother but that was it for me for the warehouse sale. 8. While I was at the warehouse I made a deal online for a 02-03 photomatched Tverdovsky gamer. Really happy with that one and at a nice price! 9) I ended up not doing the grab bag. I'm happy with that decision lol. 10) out of all of the things on my table the jerseys that got the most looks were the Kasatonov, the Lemieux, the Oliwa and the Pederson (???). Go figure on the pederson.

    Meigray Expo 2019

    Devils are a little skewed because this year they had a ton of specialty jerseys compared to previous ones. Off the top of my head they had: Sweden (all auctioned), HHOF game (auctioned), Marty HHOF salute (also auctioned), and Heritage (all but four sold out of at least 36 that I can account for). That also doesn't include the HFC and Military warmups that were also auctioned.

    NJ Devils experts...

    Devils did wear air-knit in 87-88 but only for part of the season IIRC. It was the only year where they wore those colors and air-knit. As for the CCM logo I don't remember off the top of my head for sure, but I want to say it was one color. I'll have to look later.

    third jerseys are back

    So for the Devils heritage, does anyone know if they are back this year or were they a one and done deal? I have not seen anything official either way, but I've heard through the grapevine that it might have been a one and done deal.

    Welcome to the boards! Sorry I couldn't post earlier. Moving sucks:(.

    Agreed. Plus like I said this forum could use a slight injection of life. I like coming here and seeing good stuff about jerseys unlike FB groups that are now recently been invaded by non-jersey items like cards.

    I'm not sure if the basement is an upgrade over the trailer in the parking lot. For one, the boiler down here is noisy AF. It also gets really lonely here at night. Really.....lonely..... Also yeah I dun goofed on my hating on him. Last thing I want to be is something I used to hate a lot in the past and still do. I used to be big into craft beers before the ultra-hardcore group of beer snobs who don't drink anything unless the name of the beer is preceded by the word Imperial or isn't brewed by Flemish monks in a remote monestary. I don't want to be "that guy" who thumbs his nose at people collecting stuff that's different than what I collect. I ain't better than anyone else.

    Hey I'm back after being away for a couple weeks. I moved this past Friday as my wife and I decided to upgrade. For those wondering, I am actually slightly closer now to Meigray than I was before lol. Also I got into it with TJF a week or so back on twitter. He then reached out to me privately and we talked for a bit. After talking to him my opinion has changed a bit to where he is actually a nice guy who seems to be doing it largely as a labor of love. He actually reads this forum but is a little hesistant to join due to expecting a less than warm welcome from us. I think he should as 1) he hates knockoffs and 2) will provide some convo here since let's face it; it's kind of quite around here these days. Any thoughts on this?

    I'm still blown away by how he is that revered. I mean all he is doing is using the search feature. These guys don't know how to use it? The jerseys he is finding are typically a dime a dozen.

    *Dumb Question Alert* Re: Facebook Groups

    Was it better? I don't think I have actually posted in that subreddit, but I have been lurking there for a couple years now. Very first post I looked at was a guy who posted his entire jersey collection that was about 20-25 jerseys deep. Half were replicas and half were knockoffs.

    *Dumb Question Alert* Re: Facebook Groups

    TJF is a 20 year old college kid who considers $30 poorly customized Reebok replicas in size small to be "steals." He appeals to high school and college kids who seemingly don't know how to use the search feature on eBay. It's not hard to see why a subreddit inhabited mostly by that kind of crowd loves him.

    TJF is now on r/hockeyjerseys. One more reason I shouldn't even bother ever looking there anymore.
