Yes, I have seen some of the sales. I get the emails for them.

Heck, Giroux's carnival jersey went for a high amount last year. I tried to get Talbot's carnival jersey 2 years ago - as it was signed, and I had met him that year. Last year, I tried to get the Grossman Carnival jersey... Also, signed by him. I actually had it until the last few minutes... It went for more than I was willing to spend...

Since they were signed and I had met them when they wore that particular jersey - I was willing to try. I settled on those signed sticks later. And actually, I got outbid on a game used Talbot stick once too. The set from the auction I got, I didn't expect to get. For whatever reason, the prices didn't go up much on any of them from that batch....

I really only wanted the Grossmann game used/signed stick. But, I bid on both, expecting to be outbid on at least 1 of them. I ended up getting both at the minimum bid of $250 each. I was at a location without a computer when the auctions finished, so I had made the bids before I left.
