Very true!

Maybe he was driving when he opened it. Maybe he was on the toilet and only had a minute to view it. Maybe his kid opened his Facebook account, saw it, and then went back to looking up internet p@rn@graphy while his parents were out. There could be a million possibilities. 

Also very true!

I feel like the subreddit is turning into a crap factory.  Posts get downvoted too often for very stupid reasons. There might be some sort of gang mentality/popularity contest going on there. It totally feels like the high school for jersey collectors.

I like to just browse from time to time. There’s so little quality in what gets posted. I have never see a group of people get so excited for $50 premiers or $100 adidas indos.

I get so tired of the "grail" jerseys that get posted.  Hey check out my crappy replica jersey, it is the holy grail of jerseys!!!  I hate that word anyway, but it should be really be held for that one jersey you never thought you would be able to own, but somehow you do.  Not, I bought this replica jersey of a team I kind of like, it my grail.  Even though you can get these all day on eBay for like $25.00.

Man, tell me about it. Like, bruh, how is your Maple Leafs Reebok premiere a freakin' grail? They have seriously ruined the word for me.

I prefer to go by the Indiana Jones definition. It's something you seek out forever, and then once you have it, you can't even enjoy it because it will melt off a N@zi's face.

I used to check out that subreddit a few times a week up until about 18-24 months ago.  I last looked at it about 2-3 weeks ago and 90% I saw was what you people described.  It's a bunch of high school and college kids posting about how awesome their replicas are.

Fun fact: Julian Glover, the guy who played the main villain in that film who died from drinking from the false grail is the only actor to be in an Indiana Jones, Star Wars and James Bond film.

He played General Veers in Empire Strikes back and played the main villain in For Your Eyes Only called Kristatos.

Grails are like anything else these days that are tagged with superlatives. Everything is the best, someone's favorite or grail, until next week. It's all disposable. Your grail SHOULD be a replica if you want something cheap and fast until your attention shifts to something else.

i know Hawks "fans" who bought knockoffs for this exact reason and now have bailed on the team after a few disappointing seasons. When that's your mentality, a shite jersey is just a temporary accessory to be seen in by friends who don't know the difference.

Someone just posted that they found their Grail at a Thrift Store with “Acklands Grainger” on the back, which is a screw and hardware store here in Canada.....

Lol to be fair, if he is able to strip it, $40 is an absolute steal for the jersey

Lol, I just read it. It's even a bigger steal since his mom paid for it, apparently.

Yeah, it looks like it was some sort of Promo Jersey for a local company from when the Olympics were here in 2010. Definitely a Grail though.....

What if?

I had two favorite players growing up, one was considered a career minor leaguer and one blossomed into an NHL star

I landed the career minor leaguers first two NHL jerseys and the NHL stars last Flyers gamer (he's the reason I love Philly) and his first AHL jersey.

I consider all 4 my grails.
