Jersey Collector's Glossary

Recommended Posts

When you pay more than anyone else would have paid because you NEEDED that jersey so you were wiling to pay a little extra.

The sentimental anvil- A jersey that's either been gifted to you or you purchased to commemorate an event, yet you can't ever move it. This jersey is typically a blank authentic or a replica that was important at the moment but now gets pushed to the far back of your jersey closet.

Got one I am trying to move right now and this is 100% truth.

I have about six or seven sentimental anvils from various sources. They're generally on the lower-end price-wise and moving them just isn't worth it. That said, if anyone's a fan of Czech great Petr Buzek, I have a wonderful Stars GI that I could sell you.

I've got a definition but not the name for it: patches bought for jerseys that aren't in your possession yet in anticipation of possibly purchasing the jersey(s).

Any term for when you are all into winning a jersey in an auction only to have second thoughts at the last minute and not bid/win it?

Funny part is I am somewhat regretting it.  However in the long run I think I made the right choice.

Is there some sort of jersey karma term I can apply to the following situation?

Found a reasonably rare jersey on EBay I really liked it but wasn't in love as there are others on my list I deem more important to my collection (this one wasn't even on my list). Ultimately I didn't bid and drive the price up to comfortably over what it actually sold for thus allowing someone else to buy pretty well.

No more than 4 hours later stumbled across one I've been after for a while severely under priced.

Time to re-boot my favorite thread with a new term:
Scorched earth- The moment when you realize you sold off all of the random jerseys from your collection to raise funds for other purchases and the only jerseys remaining are the ones you actually care about.

Definitely did this a year ago with my jerseys. About to do the same with my equipment.
