EPS is the best way to go, I use them exclusively. But the turnaround time can be long, so be prepared to wait.

So it sounds like we agree then that both knockoffs and official jerseys are pretty easy to find and at good prices. I still don't know how that makes wearing an official one special in this case.

Even for 2.0's while expensive (and really overpriced), I can always go to JB and get one. It's always going to be there as long as he is around.


It makes it special TO ME. It's my opinion.

"Honestly, in my experience, it's the exact opposite. I have bought jerseys at full retail in the past for $170 off of NHL.com and never wore it, left the tags on it and then sold it down the line. When I did sell it, I was lucky to get $120 with shipping included."

Umm, that is true of basically any consumer good in the world. If you pay full retail for an item (and as far as jerseys go, there's zero reason to do that as you can easily find new or slightly used ones at a discount, but anyway), of course you are going to take a loss if you re-sell it. The lone exception is if the supply is limited and the item is a collectible and the value goes up. This is not the case with replica jerseys that you are buying from NHL.com, because you can buy as many as you want all day long; an item like that will never hold its value.

It's like how they say a new car loses value the second you drive it off the lot.

And, same is true of an authentic jersey, even though the supply of those seems to be less. I know I'll take a huge hit if I pay full retail for an authentic. But, with a little time and attention, you can easily buy these things for a pretty sizeable chunk off retail.
