Are there any products with Jets jersey patches, or will they wait until they make use of all the Thrashers jersey scraps they still have in inventory?

If they can physically get a jersey I don't see why they'd hold back. They should have been able to get a Set 1 jersey a couple months ago, or if they really wanted they could try to arrange for a player to wear a jersey for one game.

Got 2 identical packages from Panini today, so I knew they were my Zac Rinaldo rookie autos from Certified. It looks like he signed a bunch, got tired/lazy/hand cramp and decided to finish off the lot by just putting his initials on. I have one sloppy "Zac Rinaldo" and one "ZR".

There are some Rip Hamilton (basketball) autos that are literally "R" and a scribble. I think Jonathan Cheechoo has the laziest hockey auto I've ever seen, that's basically J, maybe JC.

Does that BTP card Fukufuji signed in Japanese still go for big bucks? Haven't seen one in a while.

How many social signatures BizNasty cards are there? I thought it was kinda rare but they're only $15-$30 on eBay. I guess because redemptions suck?

Just a question regarding that Broad Street Boys set and maybe more in general, when do prices usually get released for products? I'm interested in buying at least one box of it.

Given a quick search and ITG's product history I'd say you're looking at $90-$100

Late sixties I would say. And what do you mean by cuts? Like cutting the auto from another piece?

Yes. They purchase letters or checks or other authentic documents with the person's signature, cut the signature off, and affix that to a trading card.

This thread is making me want to go out and buy some hockey cards though. Last time I did I think was at a Skydome vending machine for $0.35 CAD a pack.

Yeah, I haven't bought stuff in forever for a variety of reasons. I hope that if this fall doesn't bring us actual hockey it at least brings us good cards.

I did get my BizNasty Social Signatures redemption and I love it. Paul's auto itself kinda blows but a hard-signed @Biznasty2point0 was well worth $13.

Any of you guys planning on going to the Toronto show November 9-11?

I was on eBay doing random searches looking for something interesting or cheap (or both) and came upon this: an autographed picture of the fight between Ruslan Fedotenko and Colby Armstrong where Ruslan literally broke his hand punching Colby in the face.



Guy had a ridiculous buy it now which meant he had no idea what this was worth and had probably been sitting on it forever. Well, lucky for him I found it and lucky for me he accepted my super-low offer.

Now why would I bother to buy such a thing at any price? Well, because I have Colby's jersey from that fight :coal:

That's an awesome Gretzky. Someday I'd love to get an auto of his but I don't know if the prices will ever be right. I'm probably looking at a couple hundred bucks and the other problem is so many of his autos are low numbered or with a patch or with other players.

I'd probably have better luck with Gordie Howe or Bobby Orr. Although price be damned, I would pay so much if I could get Gordie Howe to sign a picture of himself from the Simpsons.

I'm excited to open some hockey cards with ya'll! Fun question. What's the most you ever payed for a single card?

I paid like $90 for a Sidney Crosby jersey/auto on eBay. I also got a hard-signed Evgeni Malkin auto for $50 at a show. It drops way off from there. I collect for myself and not to invest or sell so I don't go that big. I have spent around $200 on game-worn jerseys (the whole thing, not cards) of guys who are only important to me, though.

Nice find. Variants are hard to get at retail, especially now that they say how rare they are right on them. I got the Peter Forsberg Nordiques one at Target and then went years without seeing one.

I'm still mad at them for making the Gretzky Burger King variant super rare. I think the ebay average on those is like $400.

Legends hold a bit of value, but nobody really wants to give someone real money for a toy the looks like Anson Carter or Darcy Tucker, no matter what colour shirt he might be wearing.

This might a little old news to some people but Ducks youngster Devante Pelly-Smith got busted for stamping instead of signing his auto cards.

The various sports collecting accounts I follow like to tweet really lovely autographs and football players are by far the worst. They've posted some rookie draft picks that write one goddamn letter.

Even Don Cherry did a YA KNOW SOMTIN DAT BUGS ME about how THESE KIDS can't even write their name anymore. Now BOBBY ORR, that's a signature (and for once, he's right)

In-person autos like that won't resell for much because they aren't authenticated. Get him to sign whatever you want to keep the longest for yourself.
