Great collection! It’s on my bucket list to attend the expo of these years. It would be great seeing everyone’s collection and the history in that room. Especially see the jerseys I’ll never be able to afford haha. Also love the Holik. My favorite Devil of all time!

Thanks!  It is a fun time.  I got multiple offers on the Holik last year but I couldn't because it is my only one and they have all been gobbled up by a handful of collectors.

He is def a hard one to get. Hopefully at some point I’ll be able to add one to the collection. I have been able to snag an Arnott, Brylin(which is ripped to shreds), and a Boyle lately. The Boyle is from the game I saw him play in Florida and Nashville this past year. Also got the goal puck from the Nashville game.

Nice!  Was the Brylin from Meigray?  I had 2 red Brylin's earlier this year from 01-02 season (had set 1 and 2) but sold the set 2.

Nice pickup on the Boyle!  The only thing I don't like about my Boyle is that the wear is very light.  Every other Boyle has decent wear on it except for the one I got lol.

I was thinking about getting a Taylor Hall goal puck to pair with my jersey.  The problem was the price and the fact that goal pucks just don't really do it for me.  I was hemming and hawing on one from the 12/14/17 game against LA but that eventually sold while I was still debating it.

Hey my Brylin was from Meigray. It’s a 01-02 White set 1. The thing is destroyed. It is so nice and I had been wanting one of his for a while so it was nice. 

Same to you on the Boyle. He was just a great story his year. Hard not to root for him. The wear on mine was light as well. It doesn’t have any repairs but it has a bunch of good marks that were easy to photomatch to the playoffs. 

Ive always been a big pick kid ever since I was a kid. I have a ton of autographed pucks and when I got into the game worn hobby it was something I picked up here and there. Only have pucks from games I went to. And my Boyle goal puck is the only goal he scored in that jersey and I was at the game so it was cool to add. But it was a lot less than a Hall puck haha. I can def understand your side of it for sure.

Nice pickup on the Brylin!  Pretty decent priced too.  Brylin gamers always have excellent wear on them.  I haven't seen one in person that has less than heavy wear on it.

There are times where I want to pick up cheaper pucks, but I just can't bring myself to do it.  I once got a Zajac goal puck and after a couple months I just didn't care about it so I sold it.  Funny thing is that when I was selling it, I was asking $75 shipped, which is about what I paid for it.  Of course on my for sale listings in the Facebook fan groups I was told that I am asking way too much and that a signed Zajac puck is worth more.  lol go figure.  I eventually did sell it for like $70 shipped.

Thanks. I'm really happy with it. It probably has the most wear of anything i have. 

I totally understand. Goal pucks are really tough to get your money back on unless its a milestone or memorable goal. I have a few goal pucks from the last few season of the Devils games here in Nashville. I know i would be lucky to get 75% of what i paid for some of them. I just have them because they were from games that i went to that ended up being awesome. All OT Devils wins. But you getting back almost what you paid is really good.

Goal pucks is a hobby that only exploded in the past couple of seasons it seems like.  With that went the prices.  I remember seeing goal pucks from pretty decent players in the $50-100 range who are now $250 and over.

That's crazy. Also helps that a lot more teams have easier ways to purchase them. I think I've only overpaid for one of my pucks. I have Rico's last minute goal puck to tie the game and his overtime winner from Nashville 2 years ago. Hands down one of my favorite things i own. But i agree that prices for most pucks are crazy.

I set up a display table for the first time at this year’s MeiGray Expo. It was a lot of fun!

Great seeing you there Jordan!  Literally everyone who walked by your table stopped and wanted to touch or lift that cup lol.  It probably got the biggest reaction out of anything in the entire show.  I am not a big stick collector myself but that 552 stick is beyond awesome.  Great piece.

Had my table for the third year in a row.  I was sort of in a weird spot that didn't get a ton of traffic, but still got plenty.  I actually liked it because I was able to spend a lot of time there wandering around while last year I was sort of glued to the area around my table.  Had a lot of fun and already looking forward to next year!

See that you got the Boschmann front and center, nice!

Even though they're folded up, like how you have the Crash Line at the left side of your table, and the A-Line at the right side.  Crazy that what you brought probably isn't even half of what you have, lol.

JWomp & DevsMan84, you both have amazing collections. Glad you were there to show them off. Lots of awesome Devils history on both your tables. Hope you guys were able to add to those collections at the expo!

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.

Question for both JWomp and DM84...is people poking and prodding your stuff an issue at these things?  I gotta admit, I'm surprised by that.  One thing that I ALWAYS tell my daughter at various stores and functions is to look with her eyes, and not her hands.  I would NEVER dream of touching any of your collections without asking, and I can't think of any reason why I would even ask...I can see everything that you have on display just fine.  No need to physically handle anything that I can see.  I guess I'm just surprised that some people don't extend to you what I think is a completely "common sense" courtesy.

Haha thanks!  I actually didn't even mean to do that on purpose.  I set it up according to fit but I did keep the two famous lines purposefully together.  I made sure the rows had names that were roughly the same length so that's why you see Andreychuk, Nieuwendyk, Langs and Carp in the same row.

Honestly for the most part I don't mind people picking up my jerseys and looking at them as long as they have clean hands.  These expos usually are heavily attended by those in the hobby so I know that I am largely in the clear.  If someone was to say be drinking a diet pepsi and holding the bottle right above my jerseys while looking at them then I would have a little bit of an issue.

I actually got some good feedback yesterday on another forum that having the folded display gives the impression I want no one to touch anything.  While I don't want everyone to touch everything willy-nilly, I don't want it to be a strictly hands-off experience either.  I guess I just want a happy medium.  A rack has been suggested which does invite more people to look, but that means that 1) I would have the lug the damn rack to the show and 2) I would have to make sure I get an end table which are already pretty high in demand.

I am already starting to think about what I want to do next year.  I still don't know if I want to go all out on a rack or just do what I have been doing.  Either way the only thing I am sure on is next year to create signs.  I was on the fence about it this year but decided against it.  When I got to the show I almost immediately regretted it.

Haha even the trunk that cup came in looked really cool.  Just need to add some travel stickers and it will look exactly like the cup.

lol sorry but I am still keeping that one for now.  Actually the night before I was going back and forth if I should bring it.  I ultimately decided not to because frankly in the two previous years no one really looked at it.  The funny thing is Rupp talked about that particular brawl and I was kicking myself for not bringing that jersey.  This is why I think I will bring signs next year for some of my stuff.

I give you credit for being open to a "happy medium"...I would be a little nervous if I ever had a table at one of these...I wouldn't want to come off like a complete curmudgeon (go to a car show and you'll meet PLENTY of them), but man would I be pissed if any of my loot came back with a finger-sized stain that I KNOW wasn't there before the show. 

BTW how was Mike Rupp?  Was he cool/friendly/personable?  What's kind of scary/funny is that when I look at his pictures, I realize that with my beard, if I ever decided to shave my head again (not likely anytime soon), I'd look a hell of a lot like him, heh heh.  Cool that he dug JWomp's jersey...I remember you told me some players couldn't care less about fans collecting their GWs.  Looked like Rupp was at least in "good sport" mode from the pics.

Thanks and I figured a large chunk of why I own these things are to enjoy them and not have them under locked away in a closet forever.  Plus this event is largely attended by other hobbyists and they tend to know how to handle these and those who are not in the hobby I have never had that sort of issue with.  lol just wait when next year someone comes into the show eating some sort of oily/greasy snack while trying to touch things.  That's when I would step in.

I think Rupp was one of the better speakers Meigray has had in recent memory.  He is personable and always have great stories.  He told the story about what happened right before the opening faceoff brawl at MSG back on 3/19/12, he talked about the day he was traded by Lou, he talked about how he was Patrik's roommate on the road and how they would constantly order room service instead of eating with the rest of the team (much to Lou's annoyance) as well as other stories.  He brought to the show the jersey he wore in game 7 in 2003 when he scored the Stanley cup winning goal and he really dug Jordan's two jerseys.  He really was a good guy all around.

Ditto the bolded, which is why I wear them to games (and even at home while watching games on TV).  Putting the jersey on is part of the experience for me when it comes to watching the Devils.  I would never feel right attending a game without wearing one.  Admittedly wearing GWs makes me a little more cautious/nervous, but it's just fun to wear something that was actually worn by a player. 

It was funny, my wife was doing something in the bedroom closet (some of my GWs are hung there), and she saw an unrepaired rip in my Elias night Zajac, and asked "Do you know this one's got a tear?"  I told her year, that's part of the charm of a GW...my white Palms has one too.  She didn't poo-poo it, but she definitely looked perplexed, in a "Huh what why?" kind of way, heh heh.

I used to wear a couple of my lower value gamers to games, but I don't do that anymore out of fear of getting something on them.  I now rotate among 3 authentics that I wear to games and that's good enough for me lol.  I do admit I pretty much HAVE to wear a jersey to games.  I forgot to bring one once in the last 5 years and I felt like I was naked.  Kind of like when you wear a watch all the time and forget to wear it and you sort of notice it all day.

My wife is thankfully pretty understanding of my hobby.  She doesn't fully get it, but she knows it makes me happy so as long as I am happy and I am not breaking the bank she is fine with it.

Part of me wonders if one "accident" will be enough to end the "Wear a GW to game" practice in a hurry, lol.  Fortunately that hasn't happened yet!
