The blank authentics were $25. In Devs they mostly had White.


Holy crap I hope they consider selling me a few for a price around that range.


I don't know that there will be any left, but maybe.

I'm probably not going to get anywhere with this, but I e-mailed MeiGray asking what they do with the authentics just sitting around in their warehouse (The ones they give out at the expo). If they sell them, I'd get some.


Although email will usually work, this is the summer sale time and they might be very busy. Might be best to call and ask. I am fairly certain they had some for sale at the expo at the tent sale.... I forget the price, but it was very inexpensive.


Pick up your phone man!

When I am at work, I cannot always.

Damn a jersey I had my eye on is no longer around. Oh well!

what sweater is that my "significant as water in a pool" man?


I was looking at the Zajac white set 2 08-09. Nice puck mark across the crest with board burns. Found the perfect photo match too. I was also waiting to see how long he will re-sign for, but oh well.

Maybe the buyer of the Grant Marshall got this too. I am going to track down that Marshall one way or another. Something is fishy with it.

Andrew, I just uploaded that photo to snapfish.com, and checked to see what the biggest print they can make with a file of that size, and it's a 16x20...you have to get one!

WOW, where did you get that great photo? Probaby from some 'sexy beast'!

I bought mine and Andrew's expo tickets this morning. It looks like we'll see everyone there. :)


Very excited... Feel free to represent the Devils inside. Be prepared for a hot one in the MeiGray building after though. 100+ people in a metal topped storage facility. I can't wait to see your faces when you go into the "Sweater Vault room" for the first time. It is literally jaw-dropping...

I'd be willing to bet two years from now that it won't.


Unfortunately, I agree with this because LOTS can happen between now in and then... LOTS...

I've seen him many times out in Hershey and around there area. He is a genuine nice guy which is a plus. As for him coming to the Devils... Sometimes scoring in the AHL doesn't translate into the NHL (See Tim Tookey). I'd still give him a look. I also think Jeff Friesen would be a good pick-up. What a class guy he was and of last I heard he got cut last year by the Sharks... What a shame.

I appreciate the offer. Please count me in. If you guys have any questions about anything, just let me know. Ben



My one questions (besides the Chorske glove question I already asked):

Where the hell are ALL the damn Chroske sweaters and why is no one willing to part with any? ;)

Ben,

I had planned to be at the Hawks game in Chicago... ashame I cannot get off to go. I think KC Devil will be there as we had planned to meet up.

I understand that a lot of collectors used to think the hobby was fun and exciting. I thought by all of us getting together on here we could bring that back.

I've seen ONE Driver item I know you don't have, but the seller wasn't selling it. I've never seen a Dowd/McAlpine item that wasn't yours or one of the many "Dowd" collectors.

Ben,

If you remember I actually let my wife decide if she wanted the Skille that badly and she didn't. She said, "no thanks I don't think it is a mutual exchange". The autograph was a major issue for her/I even though all the other sweaters were the same way in the set. She likes the Blackhawks, but Skille was really (and still is) unproven through a full year. Richer has over 700 points in his career and the wear the Richer is awesome. We tried to be as polite as possible concerning the trade option you gave. Had you still had the Devils Chorske that is still on your site, it would have been a no-brainer. I would've given the Richer 92-93 for that Chorske and probably have thrown some money your way, but that was not an option and just proves further how much I would like one of his sweaters.

I emailed you a number of times about Chorske's gloves, stick, skates, and the sweater along with Sykora's stick. On your emails you responded to you either said, "I'm trying to collect the ____ (fill in the blank with gloves, sticks, and/or skates) of all players who won the cup with New Jersey." I thought that was neat and respected you for it. I stopped asking about those items, but the Chorske sweater email remained unanswered for over a month and then I resent another "last chance at contacting you" email. You respond a few days later saying you had sold it. Not a problem. At one point we had talked about the Richer for the Chorske gloves and money. Then no response. Nothing. Did you change your mind?

I asked you at the expo about breaking out the Chorske gloves and you said you were being made into a package deal. I did hear you say that right? It was after you said you found paint under your Dowd skates probably linking them back to college. We (you and I) walked over and chatted with another collector who like Dowd (Pyzik? or something similar) and Craven? At any rate you wouldn't break apart the package deal you were making, but I never saw an email about how much it was for all the gloves or hear from you period. Did you do this as you said? I still want the gloves, but after all that, I gave up on doing any kind of trade or purchase through you. I figured I was some kinda' pain in your ass you wanted nothing to do with me.

With that said, I'd like to just erase the entire past and start over for you and I. Certainly, I wouldn't have known Doug offered you the Richer for less. I love it and I paid the full $800.00 he asked for it. I did feel you wanted the Richer for nothing, but maybe you didn't mean it to be that way. It is just how I understood it. So, let's move forward.

My goal is to be friends with all Devils collectors and hopefully help them with their collections as well as sharing information about the team and players we like. I saw the Capitals collectors in Maryland at Francis Rady's event and I remember thinking, "WOW, these guys can all get along in this one room." They share info, if one has something to offer he offers it to these guys first and then goes out and tries elsewhere if doesn't work, they talk to one-another as peers and no one looks at the other person as lesser. I hope that we can have that here. A while back I contacted Mike (KC Devil), Jordan (JWomp), and Ken (unknown poster) about sharing and talking on emails. It worked well and we got on hear and communicated. I then met DevilinLA (whom I do not know your first name), and Jeremy (3CupsN9) we all get along, share info and have done trades. It is slowly growing and I really like it. This has been my plan and I would like to have you on board with us. I know you have a lot to offer and hopefully one of us could offer you something even if it only be buying something/trading with you.

Let me know if you wish to move the Chorske gloves, stick(s), gloves, or whatever you have. If you don't I understand. If you do, just tell me the price you will let them go for. Please don't ask me to make an offer as my offer will always be lower than the price you ask. If you ask $250.00 for the gloves that is fine, if you ask $300.00 so be it. If you don't want to sell them. I understand that too. Feel free to call me as well. I'll PM you with my number. If you want me to call I can do that as well.

I've tried to get in touch with Frank P., but I think he has taken a step back from the hobby. FYI.

I think Ben R. is on the site and would welcome him to share with us if he chooses.

All of his stuff are from the auction sites. The stick is from gamewornauctions.net along with the pads. The jersey is from the classicauctions.net from last summer I think.

Most interesting, but it isn't for me. I like my collection and while his stuff is nice, I'm a-okay with my stuff. I think you guys (3Cup/Jwomp) have nice collections. He has one stick, one pair of pads, and a sweater... Look what you guys have and the memories of getting the stuff, meeting the players who wore, and what not. I've never seen this guy or heard of him before.
