I know for a fact my brother and I wouldn't have bought jerseys if they weren't up for $70. I'm sure there's so many other people who feel the same way. Simple economics brother.
Plus, by setting a precedent and sending out $13 jerseys to Islanders fans, how are you NOT going to follow it up and do the same when the mistake happens again but for a more popular team?
I'm sure resident lawyer Jonathan could confirm/deny this, but aren't there also potential legal issues in a company setting a price, confirming the order, and then not sending out said orders?
They are not obligated to fill any order. End of story. That said, they have to manage their image and honoring a mistake is never bad in that department.
