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.

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.

I think I know what jersey you are talking about and quite honestly it is not a perfect science.  You can try detergents while soaking it in cold water that may or may not work.  Not sure how Goo-Gone and others would work as they might be way too harsh.

I have a couple gamers that I purchased that came with autographs.  Not ideal but sometimes it is what it is.

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.

I did wash an Edge jersey that was game worn that had burns and marks on it.  I wore it out and someone spilled a little bit of food on it.  I put it by itself inside out on gentle cold cycle with only a little bit of detergent and air dried.  Got all of the food out but none of the marks/burns/wear left.

The jerseys are pretty resilient but yeah I might have just been lucky lol.

That's super helpful - Good to know that there are options if something undesirable gets on a gamer!

Nice pick-ups. Very jealous about the Dano jersey. 

Over the past few months I've acquired:

Henrique 2011-2012 (Rookie Year) Red Set 2

Pandolfo 1996-1997 (Rookie Year) Red Set 2

Also got a game worn Sarnia Sting jersey of Brenden Trottier. He's not a Devils prospect - I've just always been a fan of the Sarnia Sting jerseys.

Nice!  So you were the one who got that Henrique rookie year for a steal?  Pretty damn nice!

What's funny is that I used to own Henrique's 2011-12 preseason jersey where he wore #51.  It was the white and the red was actually cut up and put into hockey cards.  I sold that one to pay for my favorite jersey still to this day (Peluso gamer).  Since then I've had about 4 or 5 people ask me about it as I sold it to Sports Minded and people ask me about it not knowing I used to own it haha.

Yea, man. I was expecting the winning bid to be in the four-figure range. Had to rub my eyes several times when I got the "you won" email from eBay. Couldn't be happier!

Does Sports Minded Unlimited have your (formerly-owned) Henrique jersey displayed in the store?

I know a newer collector was bidding on it too and he wasn't happy that he lost at the last second lol.  That's eBay for you.  I figured it would go in the $600-800 range because it's his rookie year, but couldn't imagine it went for that low.

And yeah Sports Minded has it on display sometimes.  It's the white 51 Henrique.  He only wore it 1 game against Islanders, but has some wear from training camp and scrimmages as well.

Nice!  I actually sold the Zajac 2016 Retro night jersey to pay for part of the Daneyko gamer purchase.  Was a little sad too since I was able to photo match the Zajac retro to 2 photos from the Star Ledger.

Sweet jersey - the guy who bought it posted some photos on Facebook. Had great marks, especially for a 2 game jersey.

That Zajac was a sweet jersey. I saw that Sykora for sale but couldn't pull the trigger on the price. Great pickup for you though! I eventually wanna get one of his myself. When are you gonna selling me your Ryan Carter fight jersey? Haha

Lol I had a white 2011-12 Sykora set 1 that I recently sold to pay for the Arnott believe it or not.  Had to play a bit of a shell game to complete my A-Line.

Not sure about the Carter.  I would need to find something really sweet or a must-have for me to part with it.  It's one of my favorites.

I don't blame you. The Carter is a sweet jersey! I missed out in it by 45 minutes from what the seller told me haha. 

I wish I would have known you had a Sykora. I would have tried to work something out with you for it!

I think I posted that I got it back earlier on this thread.  The person I sold it to asked me about it about a month ago and I said if there is something that comes up where I can part with the Sykora, it's his.  Lo and behold it only took about 3-4 weeks for that Arnott to come up.  He also has another jersey that he is going to pair with it so it will look sweet.
