Default Im looking to get in to buying Game worn Jerseys

Im looking in to getting a game used jersey but the COA is questionable? Is there a reputable COA company that you would recommend for games used stuff?

Lebron James Game Worn Used Rookie Jersey 4 Page COA | eBay

I'd only buy Meigray authenticated NBA game worn stuff.
They work for teams and NBA and have direct link to stuff and have best serial # authentication system.

They have their own site and do a lot of the auctions on nbagameworn.com

Way too many fakes out there. NBA didn't really clamp down on authentication and knew it was huge problem. So they started working with Meigray to weed out all the fakes a couple years ago.

You're going to need A LOT of money if you want authentic Lebron stuff. nbagameworn.com and auctions.nba.com are where you can get Meigray certified jerseys - however there is one particular user who always wins the Lebron (and other top stars) auctions. You will have a chance at the semi-star players though.
Will send you a PM too

I've been watching the last few Lebron auctions on nba auctions. I'm getting one. I think I'm going to move from cards to game worn jerseys. Can't see paying 5k for a Lebron logo man when I can get a full game worn jersey for a few k more.

But you won't. Jtnbafan wins them all, and bids until he does. That's the issue. Sending you a PM to discuss things

"nba auctions" should be called "Jtnbafan's newest purchases"

Its a joke website, impossible to win anything from the Star players. You could bid $100k for a game used Lebron jersey and you will get outbid lol

Don't know what he does or why he needs every single superstar jersey they list... apparently he might have a museum or work with the HOF or something.

Yep, he was the one who paid $11k for the MKG debut jersey. The only time I've ever seen anybody beat him, they ended up paying over $8k for a pair of Tony Parker All-Star Game shorts. jt had won every single other player's jersey and shorts, but not the Parker shorts.

I purchased my D Rose and Taj Gibson gamers directly from the Bulls...come with an LOA from the Bulls describing the tagging, etc....
They offer in game silent auctions for some gamers to benifit their charity called Charitabulls. Meigray is the other way to go....

Yeah I would love to buy from them but there's nothing online that I can find, makes it impossible for me. Anytime you can get it direct from the team it should be good!

Any chance that jtnbafan is Jason Terry?

He definitely seems like the kind of guy who would be big into the collecting of jerseys and memorabilia

I'd think he could just get them given to him by players after games, but I'm sure money isn't an issue to him and maybe he just buys them all

Brand new listings.

You'll see chu-ta-jp bid on most, and gamewornfan on a few, and jtnbafan will come along in the last few minutes and take the Durant, plus any others he may want. I'd be tempted for the Thabo to go with my other two but I think it's hideous so won't be going near it...

That dude doesn't win them all. Some guys he doesn't buy anymore.

I know he is big into All Star jerseys.

You can read up on them on game used universe site. It is most active site for the hobby on the net.

Getting LeBron, Kobe or Jordan stuff will be extremely expensive. I don't remember the username, but there is one guy that buys all of the jerseys on auctions.nba.com and it's very annoying. If you have the coin, go for it but cards are a lot cheaper.

Apparently he went after the Preseason jerseys too, I thought mayyyyyybe he'd show mercy on those but nope, tried at the Lebron but the minute I saw him place a bid I said forget it.

I'm not gonna lie, a couple of times I've bid on something I had no chance of buying just to make him pay more, but I know it means so little to him...

obviously and logically of course there's nothing meigray would do about it since they make more money, but it's just unfair knowing that you never have a legit at any of the more coveted jerseys. I just wish he'd throw us a bone or two, I mean PRESEASON jerseys too?? Do you really need 100 Lebron jerseys??
