Picked Up My First Game Used Jersey - 20youksox - 11-18-2012 07:44 PM

Hey, I don't usually post on the hockey boards, but I am a huge hockey fan. While I have been a little insane with the lockout, I am lucky enough to have an AHL team in the next city over that I can follow, the Worcester Sharks. Well, I have gone to quite a few of there games, but I always feel wierd because I don't have any Sharks gear to wear. They sell replicas at the pro shop, but I really perfer "authentic jerseys" with a name and number on the back. As some of you may know, the only way to get one of these is to buy a game used jersey. After saving up and doing some research, I settled on a Jon Landry jersey. Here are some pictures...

Now, I know Landry is not a star or even on the team anymore, but there is a different reason why I chose this jersey. My last name is also Landry, so now I own a jersey with my own name on it. I doubt many others can say that. The jersey is in great shape with no stains or tears. The patchwork looks geat. Now I can feel like a real fan when I go to games! Just thought I would share.

Congrats on the awesome pickup. It is pretty cool that the jersey you selected to buy of a player has the same last name. Thanks for sharing.

nice sweater congrats on getting a game used, even better that you and the player have the same last name

Nice shirt! Do they sell game used stuff at the games? I know MeiGray has a lot of AHL stuff, but I don't think Worcester was a MeiGray program team

Whoa...cool. Is that the main emblem or do they rotate it depending on the jersey? Also, inquiring Sharks fan wants to know: who's looking good out there on the ice these days?

Great pick up....that is a huge added bonus that you have the same last name as the player. I am a game worn collectorb as well....I personally wouldnt wear any of my game worns...especially out yo a game where it could potentially get damaged from stains and what not....but thats just me....

Congrats on the great pickup and hope to see more from you around the hockey boards

I'm the same way - would never wear one out, but I've met many that do. I think if you get one cheap enough and buy it specifically for that purpose, it works. Although, with the ease of acquiring those knock-offs from China and how cheap they are... that's the direction I head now.. buy those.. If a fake jersey I spent $30-40 on gets ruined - no big deal
