All-Star (6/11)



  1. You're welcome! What other Devils goalies do you have?
  2. LOVE that Blackwood!! Congrats. Really, really cool.
  3. My collecting pace has slowed considerably over the last few years, but I had a few big splurges this year. In August, I completed a matching A-Line trio (all three are 01-02 white set 2s) and last week I added an 01-02 Vanbiesbrouck red set 2, 06-07 Parise white set 2, and 00-01 Mogilny preseason. Definitely need to take a break now!!
  4. Absolutely! I was the same way. When I started collecting, I was only buying jerseys in the $250-$300 range. Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine spending four figures on a jersey, and when I splurged for my Gionta Finals jersey in 2009 for $1,315, I didn't see myself ever spending more than that on anything. But, as time goes on, you almost get desensitized to the dollar amounts, and before you know it you're dropping $3k on a Jagr, haha. It's also pretty addicting, dollar amounts aside. It's always such a great and excited feeling finding something new that fits your collection.
  5. Well it's been about 12 years since I started collecting gamers...works out to about 3 jerseys acquired per year. I try to stay disciplined! For someone who just started collecting game-worn jerseys recently, you've already amassed a really impressive collection!! I'm very jealous of those Hall jerseys. Had my eye on one this summer and almost pulled the trigger (the 2016-17 white set 1, the last one MeiGray had in stock) but ultimately put the money towards a Claude Lemieux instead. Thanks Matt! I'm really excited about that one too, first of all because it's Lemieux, and second, it was (presumably) worn in the first NHL game I ever attended on 12/22/99.
  6. I never officially shared this one, although I had it on display at the Expo earlier this month: the crown jewel of my Devils goalie stick collection, Martin Brodeur's game used stick from March 17, 2009 when he set the NHL's all-time wins record. This stick was used in the third period of that game and is photo matched to dozens of game action photos and pictures from the post-game celebration.
  7. Thank you both! I actually didn't puck up much this year, aside from two small stick purchases from MeiGray, which I'll post later on. Bringing the replica Cup was definitely a blessing and a curse, haha. So many people stopped by my table that I didn't really have a chance to walk around and explore the Expo much myself, since I was always tied up talking to someone, or "guarding" my table because people kept poking and prodding my stuff. If I ever do another display, I think I'll leave the Cup home even though it seemed to be a hit. Rupp also seemed to think it was pretty cool, and he also really got a kick out of seeing his debut jersey, and the Brodeur 552 stick.
  8. I set up a display table for the first time at this year’s MeiGray Expo. It was a lot of fun!
  9. Very quiet on here...anyone add anything new lately? Here's my latest pickup - Mike Rupp's NHL debut jersey. It's an 02-03 white set 1 that Rupp wore in his first NHL game on 1/13/03 against the Florida Panthers. Much like his finish to the 2003 season when he scored the game-winning goal in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals, it was a storybook NHL debut for Rupp. Called up from Albany to make his debut on his 23rd birthday, Rupp scored two goals in his first game including the game-winner (and had a third goal disallowed - so close to the hat trick). He went on to wear the jersey in 6 games, scoring his first four NHL goals while wearing it and also picking up his first NHL assist and first NHL fight in the jersey. The jersey has really nice wear considering it was only worn in 6 games (roughly 9-10 repairs including some really cool clusters of repairs on the shoulders, where excessive board burns had to be sewn shut) and it is photo matched to all 6 home games he wore it. Rupp never lived up to the hype of being a first-round pick, but he has always been a favorite of mine since his impressive NHL debut, the 2003 Finals, and throughout his two stints with the Devils, so I'm very excited to add this to my collection.
  10. And here's another of Henrique from that date. Not full-size but definitely big enough for an 8x10. Not sure if the upload feature on this site compresses or downsizes images so I can email this to you.
  11. It's not high res, but this file is bigger than the one you posted and probably big enough to get an 8x10 printed: http://www2.pictures.zimbio.com/gi/Anaheim+Ducks+v+New+Jersey+Devils+uQtZxczu1d_x.jpg
  12. Recently picked up this Adam Henrique stick. Used on 3/31/17 vs. the Islanders and 4/1/17 vs. Philadelphia. Photo matched to both games, including to a goal on 3/31.
