I think he means the small-block CCM?

Ah,

Cool, Thank you

I've just never heard that one before

Me neither, so I'm not even sure if what I posted was correct :lol:  But, when he said "Team Choice" that made me think of the small-block style.

I think I've seen scrabble logo referenced in the jersey book for a CCM small block with no colour embroidered into the blocks of the logo... like the Modano team choice jsh posted.

I could be making stuff up too, or imagining I've seen it in the jersey book, I dunno 😅

What goes through a buyer's brain when they complain to you about a price? The auto-reject messages that I am getting are becoming more desperate.  Great, some random turd could 'understand' if the jersey was priced at YYY but not at AAA.

See if you can spot what I didn't....

And when you spot the issue, what would you put the value at? 
Trying to return it but the seller listed it as not returnable, trying to work out an agreeable refund stinks 

For Sale.....

I’m totally stumped. Looks good to me? Compared to a 1999-2002 purple Kings GW it looks correct. I mean, maybe the neck lace is a little long??

The giant snag under the logo on the left?

Now I see it. The pics on the web are terrible quality. When I view it in the app it’s much higher quality. That sucks. That seller should have called that out. I would ask for a refund. That’s a big defect.

Yup, you got it!
I was glad I could spot it in their listing to prove it was a pre-existing condition
I got it for $120
The seller refunded $40

I suppose I could sell it for $80

I guess that's what I get for not looking more closely

I wouldn't blame yourself, a bunch of us missed it even after you said it was there. I think a lot of people would have missed that in the original listing without having been warned that something was wrong.

Thinking about it more, I really hate when sellers do stuff like that. There's a jersey on eBay right now that I know to have damage because I used to own it, and the new owner is selling it and not disclosing it. Someone will get that jersey and be surprised. 

I'm not going to try to hurt another guy's sales because that's just not me, but I can also add that its so overpriced that none of you are at risk of buying it anyway.

I've returned jerseys with a list of reasons why, for the most part when I see the item listed again the problem is noted.

For example: https://www.ebay.com/itm/VINTAGE-OTTAWA-SENATORS-JERSEY-YASHIN-19-SZ-52-Center-Ice-Signed-RARE-NHL-/193027430629?item=193027430629&ViewItem=&nma=true&si=E4AP1hqJaGTFaEr%2FcfAe%2FPpwNNg%3D&orig_cvip=true&nordt=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557

The origional listing made it out to be flawless with a few stains, I feel fairly confident with my ability to get stains out so I took a swing at it.
When I got it the thing had 3 major pulls, a hole and piling

It was a battle to return and the seller got more than I anticipated when they re-sold. Maybe the next guy isn't as much of a stickler as most of us here and can overlook some flaws / still feels like they got a deal but I want my stuff to be as clean as possible (kinda why I've never been pulled into the game worn stuff)

Wear on a gamer is one thing (not your thing or my thing, but it’s a thing), but on a regular jersey it just means you treated it like crap. Unless you played hockey in it, and in that case, you should mention that. 

But I’ll never understand people who sell jerseys with mystery stains, especially those that are simply cleaned with minimal effort.

I don't understand the mystery stain either.  Just try to clean it and if it works out you can sell for more.  As a buyer I don't mind the mystery stain, it's netted me one really awesome rare jersey recently for a steal.

But not disclosing flaws and such is a no no to me too.  I was talking to another IJer about this and we agreed why wouldn't you just disclose a flaw, more often then not it will be met with an, "no worries, no problem" sort of response.  The price might take a slight hit if you're selling but at least you made an honest deal and have a good contact going forward and potentially more deals.

I'd say most guys who collect only authentics want the condition to be pristine as possible. I think?  Most of us are intimate enough with our collection to be able to point out flaws and keep things honest, so why not.

Recently, I got an awesome jersey that looked mint and flawless and it was advertised that way too. When I got it, it wasn't exactly what I was expecting.  We've all been there and I know I'm picky about condition to a point, but with what we spend on this hobby we should be.  I reached out to the seller about 2 small black marks on the crest (which could be removed with a little effort) and a half inch noticeable scratch through the embroidery on the crest that can't be repaired (a flaw).  The seller said he was sorry, it was his fault for not going over it better and immediately asked for my paypal to refund me some $ for working on the stains.  The scratch is minor enough that I didn't care since the kit is the star of the jersey anyway.  But had he told me upfront about the scratch and marks and sent a pic we probably would have came to the same conclusion of a minor discount on asking price vs me paying full then getting the discount later for him realizing he didn't disclose properly.  Regardless the seller took responsibility and was great about it and I'm sure he'll do a better 'once over' before listing next time.  Or he'll clean it/fix it himself before listing.  I told him I wasn't going to say no to a slight refund, and told him I appreciated it... and he said it's the right thing to do, it was his mistake, he should have gone over it better. 

Disclosing seems like the least painful route, but sometimes it is understandable that a seller may have missed something.  I'll always give the seller the benefit of the doubt that they missed it assuming they try to make it right.

I think full disclosure is always the way to go. But like you intimated, I can look at a stain and make a pretty good assessment as to whether or not it can be cleaned. But I still don’t know why a seller would not just wash it, on the theory that less flaws equals more money. 

Again, not talking about you game worn weirdos who like your jerseys brimming with DNA.

Gamers is a totally different story for sure, I just want them the way they would have been hung it the stall prior to the wearing part.  Who the weird ones are is up for debate I suppose.

I'm thrilled as all get out when I see a dirty jersey, it typically equates to a better price and gives me a small window to snag it when other buyers pause.

It also has netted me a few gamers at a low cost which I was able to identify and pass on to those that want gamers.

I think the biggest reason people don't clean them is due to the tagging in the neck that describes how to handle washing  and it scares them a little bit

Again, works for me as I plan on cleaning everything I buy anyway

There's also a growing number of people who simply don't want to put out the effort to clean the jersey, even if it means more $ in their pocket.

Kind of like that buyer mfitz had that would rather spend ridiculous amounts of money for his already customized jerseys than send it to EPS himself.

But not more than the guy who sold you the blank at his cost right?
(it actually helped me too as I needed that $ to buy 6 MIC Adidas all at once)
