Default Anyone here collect Game Used Jerseys?

I have been a card collector for many years, but recently decided to get into Game Used jerseys. Just wondering if anyone here buys gamers. I have about 6 gamers, with 3 more on the way in the mail. So far I only buy NFL Redskins jerseys, but we'll see how that changes over the years.

I have a number of minor league jerseys. Someday when we sell our house and move into one with more space I think I will sell 99% of my card collection and put the money in MLB and/or NHL jerseys.

Welcome to The MeiGray Group is a great place to get jerseys. Maybe not the cheapest but I've always given them credit as being 100% legit.

JO Sports Inc - "The Source" for all your game used memorabilia is where I've purchased a few from. I bought one directly from Chris Cooley, and got a few from The Redskins Tent sale at the Stadium.

The prices aren't bad, when you factor in what you dump into cards trying to pull the monster hit.

I feel the same way, once I move into my new house, My Man Cave will have jerseys proudly displayed all over the walls.

pskell is correct, I do love the game used jerseys. I have quite a bit of them. It's a little easier to get my Colts jerseys since my friend plays for them. I have almost 30 Colts game used jerseys. A ton of gloves. I'm close to a full Rhodes uniform, and am supposed to get a helmet very soon. I also collect NHL items. I have several Pavel Bure game used jerseys, including his 94' Stanley Cup Home Jersey.(dont ask what I paid for that) On top of that I have around 300 or so game used NHL sticks. Gretzky, Lemieux, Ovechkin, Malkin, Bure(24), etc, etc, etc,.... Chipmaster, if you need any Skins stuff let me know and I will see what I can track down for you.

I almost bought an Ovechkin rookie gamer from Meigray a couple of years back, I think they ONLY wanted $5k for it at the time......Man I wish I had jumped on it. That's nice you have an inside connection for the jerseys - makes everything that much easier. I have a complete uniform (less the helmet) from Todd Collins last 5 games of last year (he was the skins backup QB who took us to the playoffs). I am looking for the helmet to match. 300 Sticks? Man you must have an awesome collection, I'd love to see a few!

Look in the gallery and you can see a lot of some collections....also a site I often use to buy is americanmemorabilia.com I don't buy gamers, but they often auction a lot of them.

I will post some pics later this evening. My football hook up is awesome, and not just because of the freebies. He's just a great guy. I also have some connections for NHL items, which is where most of my modern era sticks come from. A friend of mine works for the Wings, and I played hockey with a guy who is now starting in the NHL. He made the All Star team a few years back, and we stay in touch. We both had scholarships to the same college, and I lost mine due to a hip replacement at 17. Kind of sucks, if not for that maybe someone would be collecting my cards?

Here is my favorite non-Bure stick. I'll post more when I find the disc they're on.
