DEALS AND STEALS

Recommended Posts

If you did it without telling us, nobody would have known :thumbsup:

But if it is GI, go ahead and strip

:lol: I guess I probably should have mentioned that it had already been stripped - I was even able to save the name plate.

Sorry if that is upsetting to anyone,

Just so I'm in the loop,

GI - who cares strip away

GW - saktap if altered in any way

in my opinion a game issued jersey is no different then a retail jersey. If the jersey was never worn then it holds no significance historically to the game or player in my eyes.

Like i said earlier the issue arises when people destroy gamers of lesser know players , if you want an example in the 80's people murdered even good player jerseys to make 99's. I have come cross even good players who have felt the wrath of terrible collectors a Randy Gregg, a Charlie Huddy turned into a 99 :(.

Many also strip preseason jerseys , personally i would not do this but i can understand some people might. In the end this thread is about deals and steals and not my personal opinions on stripping.

on that note i am done, lets find some deals and steals guys because the stripping gamers thing has been done everyone knows where i stand and if some think i am out of my mind thats fine. i LOVE THE HOBBY and i know what i have put into it so i try to protect it and educate others (newer collectors).

deals and steals!!

What if it's a game worn, but the previous owner has looked after it poorly - is restoration OK as long as you mention it if re-selling it? (eg. Vinyl number layer missing that would still be there if it was cared for.)

Sorry, not trying to start any fights.

Typically if someone is being a Doo Doo head I just ignore them.

Thanks for the help.

Back to deals & Steals!!

YOu don't like Lesley Gore?

Juvenile and childish is when you need to go into name-calling when someone dares to call you out and disagree with you on an opinion. Hobby vs investment is a gray area open to interpretation.

Asking nicely, from both of you - can we cool it, please?

I edited out the negativity, and added some Sunshine, Lollipops...and so on and so forth.

I was surprised how cheap those Bruins went...although being a size 46 doesn't help.

The Oilers I actually bought from SunGod about a month ago just to get/strip the authentic 10th anny patch that landed on my Nike Messier -

Don't know where I would have found one otherwise.

After ebay fees I lost a good chunk on it....but I guess you could just say I overpaid for the patch, lol.

Oh well. Still happy to have it :D

All I'm gonna say about this topic is that if you own a jersey you can do whatever you well please to it. Others can have their opinions but in the end I own the jersey and I put my money into it so I will do whatever I want to it.

There is absolutly no need for anyone of us to come on here and ask if it's "ok" to strip this kind of jersey or "not ok" to strip this kind of jersey. I, and all of you, should enjoy this hobby any way you see fit and ignore any comments from anybody telling you different.

thanks for your 2 cents, coming from a guy that strips gamers am sure that opinion is not biased!

Card companies buy jerseys of star players and cut them up into little pieces i guess thats ok too? they own the jerseys right?

Slim's edited version

I don't think you should be trying to force your opinion down everyone's throat.

Your logic is that because a player wore the jersey in a game, it's really HIS jersey and not yours, which is bs and I don't know where your logic comes from.

If the jersey was that important to the player, you would think he'd say to the equipment manager, "hey, I want that", rather than allowing it to be sold. Regardless, the way buying something works is that once I give someone money for something, it becomes MINE, regardless of the name on the back or what it was used for. I paid for it, I own it, I have a right to do whatever I want with it. What if I buy a Sydney Crosby gamer to wipe my Arse with? Who are you to judge me?

And pls don't PM me anymore.

Edit: Really slim? Puckboy can make racist comments that don't get deleted and don't get him banned, but you're going around censoring other people now? Seriously?

Slim's edited version -( i like my original version better oh well)

Just let it go, i don't agree with your opinion and you don't agree with mine, i have no issue with that.

TMLFAN i respectfully disagree 100% with your opinion if you want to talk about the issue pm but otherwise we all know where we stand and we continue to go on and on for no real reason.

Let's get back to deals and steals....

Now lets get back to talking about hockey and jerseys.

That's why I don't really like to post what I find on here. If I find something I know one of us is searching frantically for, I'll PM them instead. I'd rather it go to a hopeful collector, than wind up w/ J4TW or the likes of them.

Hey everyone, I recently discovered this forum and I can't believe the collections some of you have! All the different tips and tricks I've learned about jerseys, and I thought I knew a lot already. Great community you've got here!

Anyway, on topic... I recently picked up an authentic dark blue Oilers Curtis Joseph jersey off Kijiji for $40. Easily the best price I've paid for an authentic, and I'm a big Cujo fan so that was the icing on the cake!

Very true I try and do the same
