The Official Devils GAME WORN Jersey Thread

The Larsson, Zajac and to an extent the Severson were steals (with Severson depending on how his career pans out).  The others the prices can be explained by the following:

1) Gionta - Has a cult following.  His jerseys are always pre-ordered and never make it to the Meigray website.  Myself and other collectors believe his family is also buying them as well.

2) Schneider - He's a star so no surprise there.

3) KK - Has a little bit of a cult around him.  Also probably the only retro night he will ever start in.

4) Danis - There is literally one collector who lives in Switzerland who buys EVERYTHING of his.  He once posted his list of game used jerseys of Danis and he had pretty much every one Danis ever wore in his entire pro career.  Danis was also one of, if not the most expensive gamer from the Albany Devils Ugly Christmas sweater auction.  Most likely they were both purchased by this individual.

5) Tootoo - Has a bit of a cult

6) Farnham - Also has a bit of a cult.  He had a bit of a cult in Pittsburgh/Wilkes-Barre

7) Sislo - First career NHL goal(s).  Also has a little bit of a cult following

 

A lot of the Albany call-ups have cult followings.  The fans up in Albany tend to really like the players as they tend to have closer and easier access to them.  Like most other minor league teams fans then build up a following around certain players at their level and follow them to the NHL.  That would explain some of the call up ones.

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.

Yeah but can't be sure anymore since NHL Auctions removed the usernames of bidders from auctions last summer.

Just taking away Gionta and Danis out from the auction, the average jersey goes down to $702.64

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