  1. The Official Devils GAME WORN Jersey Thread

    That's super helpful - Good to know that there are options if something undesirable gets on a gamer!
  2. The Official Devils GAME WORN Jersey Thread

    Yea, I'm concerned that I'll try removing the sharpie and inevitably end up just smearing it all over the white number. The detergent option worries me because I don't want to remove any board burns/marks. As you noted, it might be best to just leave it as-is.
  3. The Official Devils GAME WORN Jersey Thread

    Does anyone have experience removing a sharpie signature from a gamer? I'm considering purchasing a Devils gamer that has signature on a white number - I'm not a fan of autographed gamers and this one in particular looks like a crappy rush-job (likely as the player walked to from the arena to his car after a game). I've seen a few methods online and wonder how successful (or not) they are.

    For two-game retro jersey, that's a pretty fair average.

    I remember you referencing the username for Gio's winning bids matching his big bro's twitter handle. Has to be the reason for his jersey going for more than a Schneider.

    Geez, the amount that some of these went for is puzzling to say the least. Would've loved to grab the Larsson at that price.

    Awesome pick-ups! Speaking of the retro jerseys, any idea how much they went for? I am dumb and missed the damn end of the auction. Wondering if the prices have gone down at all considering they've been wearing the retros for a few years now.

    Thread has been quiet for too long - figured I'd share my latest acquisition. It's not a Devils gamer though - I made the purchase because I think Sherbrooke Phoenix (QMJHL) have one of the best jerseys in hockey. The player is Daniel Audette, a 2014 5th round pick by the Habs. So, anyone else acquire any new gamers recently, Devils or otherwise? Anyone looking to sell anything?

    Agreed in full! I wasn't interesting in buying it, just looking to find out why there was a SCF patch on it. Thanks!

    DevsMan84, As the knower of all things gameworn in the NHL, I throw this question to you: what is up with this 2003-2004 Mike Rupp jersey with a SCF 2003 patch? http://www.ebay.com/itm/Authentic-Game-Issue-Mike-Rupp-New-Jersey-Devils-NHL-2003-Stanley-Cup-CCM-Jersey-/391365836667

    I LOVE THIS! I wouldn't want the big league team to do this, but I am totally down with this in the minors. http://www.thealbanydevils.com/devils-reveal-special-holiday-jerseys/
  12. Help with Devils Reebok shirts

    You can order Henrique from Modells: http://www.modells.com/product/mobile/new_jersey_devils_adult_adam_henrique_name_and_number_t-shirt-3404a0047509aqe.do I can't say I've ever seen a Greene or Larsson jersey-shirt. The latter will hopefully change this season.

    If you haven't done so yet, you gotta check out these photos of the Sharks equipment sale. This is how it's done! I've never been inside the Devils equipment sale (not a STH, so lines were way too long) but I wish they'd bring it back and do it like this: http://gameworn.us/review-2015-san-jose-sharks-equipment-sale-wow/ *even the giant shark that the team uses for player intros can be purchased...for $290,000.
  14. Slow News Day: Kremlin Edition- Could IK Come Back to NHL?

    If the by-laws loophole is legit, then we absolutely should take Kovalchuk back. At the very least, we trade him (which is the most likely outcome IMO). It'd be foolish not to accept a player with his talents and trade value. I know we all hate him for leaving but not bringing him back for either option would be cutting off the nose to spite the face. Given the insane contract that he signed, the scenario of him coming back (whether to play or to be traded) would really be the best possibility: he voided his contract at the ideal time, saving the franchise $2+ mill in recapture penalties and ending his bloated contract during a time of financial instability. If traded, we get something for him. If we keep him, we get an elite scorer that our team desperately needs. Btw, looks like this is nearing completion... http://homesoftherich.net/2015/04/hockey-player-ilya-kovalchuks-20000-square-foot-alpine-nj-mansion/
  15. Realistic trade targets in the offseason

    Agreed in full. I definitely think that people tend to over-value first round draft picks. Lots of fans, myself included, were ticked off when Lou traded our 9th overall pick in 2013 for Schneider. But, after the dust settled and I had a chance to evaluate the situation, I realized he traded a gamble opportunity for a guaranteed #1 goalie.
