The Official Devils GAME WORN Jersey Thread

Or maybe people were more willing to drop $1,000+ when they knew the money was being donated to Hockey Fights Cancer.....

Yup. People pay stupid prices when charity is involved, I've seen it both in this context and in others.

Plus, you can't even complain about the prices, it was an auction. If they were listing them for straight up sale, the prices would have been lower. But when people start bidding against each other, this kind of stuff happens.

And, as pointed out above, they were advertising it where in the past, casual fans didn't even know about it.

While I understand there is always the inflation of prices on these charity auctions due to the cause, I largely do not buy that.

The same fans that piss and moan and cry poverty over $250 game worns and $120 replicas are suddenly inspired and wealthy enough to drop $1000+ on a practice jersey worn in a single warmup. Hell there is a collector who posts here on this thread who offered to sell his game worn Henrique that is photo matched and worn in a dozen games for less than $700 to a person who was willing to drop $1500+ on that warmup worn Henrique jersey. She declined and her reason was literally "well this one is purple." That's where both the dumb and fickle part comes in.

People who bought these jerseys are not collectors. Plus the other factor was that the devils were finally advertising this auction when I'm the past for retro night and other auctions they never mentioned them.

exactly, i offered to sell my henrique for $650 shipped which i felt was really pretty reasonable but instead that purple HFC jersey that was worn for a total of less than a half hour sold for over 2 grand! atleast the money went to charity.

I wouldn't even count the fact that it was an auction.  Past retro night auctions didn't get into the stupid pricing territory that the HFC jerseys went into.

 

I have seen a few of the winners step forward claiming them won one of the HFC jerseys.  None are known collectors and pretty much all of them got one because "it's purple."  Wait until they have the replicas out next year for these for $90 each.

I'm sorry, I know this is serious to some of you and I absolutely respect that. But the point of this auction wasn't to satisfy "the collectors" , so why are you so concerned that people chose to spend their own hard earned money on something that a) Makes them happy and b) donates money directly to charity. I see zero reason why this would upset you so much. If I bought a Tootoo #22 Purple jersey because I like the color purple and I like ironic names, and I felt like the money I spent was worth it for a charity that I support, why is it so frustrating for you?

Thank you for that first line, I really appreciate it and I am not being sarcastic about it.  Usually the response I have gotten as well as others into this hobby is "oh you are just jersey snobs!" that I have seen on here, other forums and social media.  Again, I really do thank you for not going that route.

 

In regards to your actual post, I think my wording before was not the best and I think my point didn't come across cleanly.  Honestly, I do not care really what people spend their money on.  If they want to drop $2K+ on a warmup jersey because it is purple then be my guest.  I think it's foolish, but no skin off my back.

 

What I do find irritating are who are the ones dropping the $ on these jerseys.  I've asked around a little and not surprisingly none of the other collectors bid, which is fine.  However, the people who have come forward to say that they either bid or actually won one of them are the non-collectors who like to bust the people who collect jerseys (whether it be gamers or even replicas/authentics) balls.  These are the same people who buy knockoffs (I don't care if they do at this point) or whine about $150 jerseys from the Den and say how little money they have on jerseys but now all of the sudden have the $ to drop on jerseys because it is either purple or because of the cause (which is the silver lining here as it is a very good cause).  Next time I try to sell a jersey on the Devils FB groups that cost me $150 and I try to sell it for $100, I really would rather not hear from these people claim that I am asking too much for my jersey or try to hassle me for every $ while claiming poverty.

 

Basically in short, it's not why they bid, but who bid on them and how they are normally.

Wait, people who buy fakes are now dropping $500+ for a purple warmup jersey? Not only does that sound unlikely, but even if they are, they are buying something real instead of a fake, and you're STILL upset with them??

I kid you not the same people who bitch and moan about jersey prices and rationalize buying fakes did indeed partake in this and drop $475+.

 

This is the type of sh!t that makes my head explode and why I am pissy about it.  They will go right back to bitching and moaning about jerseys prices and justifying buying fakes and giving me a hard time about my prices on sh!t that I am already taking a hit on.  Prime example of how this fanbase when it comes to sh!t like this are fickle as fvck.

But that's two separate things. I find it hard to believe that anyone who spends a few grand on a fvckin purple jersey cares about "series 2" and "card photonatched" and all the terminology that goes into your hobby. These people aren't hurting you at all, because the people buying these jerseys want it for themselves and not to be a centerpiece in their proud jersey collection. What if the person who bought the Henrique jersey is a cancer patient who adores him? What it a family got together and bought one for their gramma who's a cancer survivor and loves Schnieder? These aren't jersey collecting people.

My point is, this type of jersey auction should concern you in your hobby about as much as model trains or coins or any other type of collectable-based hobby. Of course it's ridiculous to you (an avid collector) and me (a sports fan) that people would cherish a purple Devils jersey more than a game worn Stanley cup finals jersey. They have a Zidlicky SCF in the hall of fame for Christ sakes, obviously that jersey is cool as hell! But these people bought it with their own money and for their own collection (or lack thereof) because it makes them happy -- it shouldn't come off to you (not just you, but the others in this thread) as a personal insult and shouldn't even be worth your time getting upset about.

Man, come on. That purple stands for something to a lot of people. And I'm damn sure it stands for something to most of the people who spend their hard earned money on getting one. Fickle as fvck?

And those reasons are 100% perfectly fine with me and doesn't affect my hobby at all.  If someone drops $2000+ for a warmup jersey and then busts my balls over a $100 jersey by crying poverty, just don't expect me to be a happy camper

 

Again, I am not attacking the charity or what the jerseys stand for.  It made a ton of money for charity and that's great.

If I spent $2,000 on a practice Hersey I'd be crying poverty after as well.

Still a little high for some but more realistic prices!!

 

Oh definitely and this actually had the lowest average price per shirt for a Devils auction since the Stadium Series practice worn jersey auction.

 

There were many reasons for the drop such as:

 

1) Replica camo jerseys are readily available for sale

2) Military charity's tend to speak to fewer people.  What I mean is that fewer people have a connection to the cause while cancer has a larger pool.

3) It was only a couple of weeks after the HFC jerseys, so some people's wallets were a little light.

Any specific reason why Farnham's was the highest??

 

Simply, he is the flavor of the month.  Before that (and still kind of is) was Tootoo, and before him was Gionta, and so on.

 

There could be other reasons too such as possibly his family bidding on it as well.  That has happened many times before.

Albany Devils Ugly Christmas sweater jersey auction ended tonight and they went for crazy prices.  Not surprised it was high but some just went for stupid prices.  Some of the higher end ones probably had family/friends bidding on them.  No way does Yann Danis go for Brodeur money.  I didn't bid but I will possibly in a year or two when the prices come down.  Total amount for all 24 jerseys was $19,315.35 and the average price per jersey ended up being $804.81.

 

Player  Final Bid 
Yann Danis  $    3,240.99
