Sites for Kings Memorabilia / Collectibles
 
Need URL's for good sites for Kings Memorabilia / Collectibles willing to ship to Scandinavia / Europe. What do people recommend ? Don't have that much prior experience with these and would be relieved to know who are the vendors that have a solid reputation for dealing quality merchandise.

Thank you in advance Fellow Kings fans :)

Does Amazon.com ship to Europe? I've found some sweet deals over there in the past 12 months. I bought a few Antigua sweat shirts for $8 each and a polyester polo shirt for $6. I can't remember all the junk I've bought but you can find some sweet deals there if you dig.

Depending what you are looking to pick up, there are a few Canadian retailers that sell things. You can try www.rivercitysports.ca and www.jerseycity.ca

Here's an odd idea I know the Kings' parent company AEG owns part of Djurgardens and all of the Hamburg Freezers and Eisbaren Berlin. I wonder if the team stores sell any Kings stuff? If not, I wonder if they can bring it in through their connections to AEG? Might be a way to get some stuff shipped cheaper.

Also the shipping costs worry me a bit. Have some 2012 stanley cup champions stuff still at friends house in edmonton as it would have costed wayyyyy to much to ship here to Finland. Good idea about the Djurgården thing. Have to check it out.

Also looking to find some good deals on gameworn jerseys, autographed pics etc.

I think ebay would be a good place to start?

wrong

unless you truly know what to look for on a jersey to determine it's authenticity, i would stay away from eBay. it is over run these days with counterfeit jerseys.

if you want actual gameworn then i suggest you deal with the different auction houses that specialize in them.

most of what you will find on eBay is crap. the old saying, "if its to good to be true" is what needs to pass through your mind each time on eBay.

Any ideas on these ? As the title suggests, I am a bit in the dark with these :D

sure thing.

start here on the forums from ice jerseys. there are some 'tips' threads on what to look for when buying a jersey. members also will sell jerseys from their personal collections, post good/bad deals from eBay, etc. very knowledgeable forum and great info source
http://forums.icejerseys.com/

when looking at jerseys to verify the look, style, numbering, etc. the one and only jersey database to use. the only downside is it doesn't have close ups to see fabric materials, name plantes, etc.
http://www.nhluniforms.com/

a few different auction sites from this list. there is also (to the left) another forum to check out. more info on resources, auctions, dealers, etc
http://www.gameworn.net/dealers.html

the actual auction site tied to the above resource list and forum. I've bought from them and they are reputable.
http://www.gamewornauctions.net/

another auction site and the official partner of the Kings that sells their game worn jerseys now. MeiGray has become the primary go to seller these days, because of the partnerships they form directly with the teams. they also have done a lot to authenticate and tag jerseys, so they are identified permanently as true game worn.
http://www.meigray.com/

should be enough to get you going. read and research before you spend your cash.

as inspiration when it comes to collecting jerseys
