Typical Team X FB Fan group (non-jersey specific) interaction:

1) Guy makes statement about current jerseys that is inaccurate/incorrect

2) I reply with the correct information

3) Guy responds aggressively and blocks me

4) I start to wonder why I even bother

OT... @Devilsguy (or friends of friends) -- do you happen to need/want a parking pass for the 2/8 game vs the Flames?

I've got a VIP pass that I don't need. Says $30 on it, 15 Lafayette, Levels 3-4.

$free

(You seem like a knowledgeable, helpful person.)

Thanks for the offer!  Unfortunately I already have a pass ready to go for Thursday's game.  Thanks again for thinking of me!

An actual question and not the usual complaint about the inanity of these groups. Does a sales post in a jersey group automatically appear in marketplace? I can see my own posts from groups on marketplace (even though I make sure I indicate that I don't want to list there). I can even see a rough map of my location with the posts. I just hope that I am the only one who can see those in marketplace because I don't want my neighbors knowing what I'm up to with jersey selling.

I think it does unless you opt out.  Or vice versa.  I have seen my for sale posts and others in the marketplace as well if they are close enough.

Yet one of the few serious collectors out there asks a detailed question about an NHL jersey from the 1960s and it's crickets. Everyone just blathers away while a legit-- and potentially fascinating-- post on jersey history gets ignored.

The Bruins practice jersey?

Hopefully and soon enough the hobby moves away from FB and back to forums again.

The Maple Leafs Sittler jersey also went without too much attention. An important piece of NHL history is found and authenticated and it might as well never happened on the main board. Mail days and selling dominate while open hobby discussion is something that seems to happen very rarely. People make fun of puck collectors, but there's more instances of constructive behavior with those collectors then with jersey collectors.

Yes Devilsguy, I was thinking about the Bruins practice jersey question. I met that guy last year and his knowledge of jerseys is through the roof. He has some real gems in his collection.

The Sittler thing amazed me. People would rather throw darts at each other and put up funny GIFs than learn about the history of the game.

I see that guy post here and there and from what I remember he does seem to have some nice stuff.  However through the constant din that goes on in that group I barely see his posts in there (though he might just not be posting much at all).

The Sittler jersey is awesome.  I read the article when it came out and finally got around to watching the news video yesterday.  I would much rather see that than people arguing/crying over what other collectors are allowed/not allowed to collect.

Tight lol.

I haven't seen it yet.  The video said Meigray might be showing off this jersey at some point so I will wait for that.

Yeah, he's pretty busy with other stuff and only gets on FB a couple times per month. Great guy though, maybe the lack of time on FB contributes to that :D

Catch Morten freaking out because someone got a goal puck besides him.

I wonder if he ended up with the Sprong puck that Casey posted to screw him over.

Who knows, apparently the Jets are conspiring against him.

if there were the 100 Commandments of Jersey Collecting" a few would be


-All thing Vesey and Sprong belong to Morten

-Casey must be an a******

-Jake Marty must comment on everything

-Everything Rangers goalie related belongs to @thebiggoalie

The whole purpose of jersey collecting is for me to NOT be intellectual.

If it wasn't for the fact that I have much better luck of selling my jerseys on FB than I do on eBay or in forums I would have left at least 2/3 of the facebook groups I am in now.

To be fair, I haven't seen a Jake Marty thread/post in a bit, but I might not be paying much attention to it.

Not me, that's why I am always serious and never make "that's what she said" jokes.
