I was wandering what game used New York Rangers Memorabilia do some of you fans have? Just to see whats out there and if you guys have a story on how you got it it would be nice to hear it. I like collecting stuff and just curious. Hope everyone has a happy holidays. LETS GO RANGERS!!
i don't collect game used so much as I collect vintage memorabilia, but that is where a good chunk of my money goes. I have tons of autos and things like that but some of my most prized possessions are 2 autographed lester patrick photos, autographed lynn and muzz patrick index cards. 1910 c-56 lester and frank patrick rookie cards, two 1939 Toy Creations Lester Patrick Official Hockey board games (1 is the spinner and 1 is the die variation) 1950's Rangers vs Bruins German Exhibition poster that used to hang in the garden; and anything and everything in between. Rangers newspapers, obituaries, personal letters, lynn patricks wedding photos. I have a regular ranger museum. I put my collection at over 15 grand. My main focus is the Patrick family and then vintage NYR.
My collecting passion is game worn jerseys. The Ranger portion of my collection includes Don Maloney (New York front), Fedor Tyutin, Lucien BeBlois, Dan Girardi and Michael Rozsival. I've also got a Mark Staal Sudbury Wolves gamer. I've also got a real jewel from the Rangers farm system -- it's a Ranger style jersey worn by Steve Durbano when he accumulated 402 PIM (then a professional record) in Omaha in 1971-72.
All I have so far is one of the jerseys that Sean Avery wore during the Brian Leetch Night game with the MeiGray patch in the inside..and I am getting the puck that Sean Avery scored his only goal this season against Atlanta. I wish to find a game used stick and game used glove to add to my collection lol. Then with autographs I have a team signed poster when I met the whole team in Toronto during the Hockey Hall Of Fame weekend in 2007 when they were signing autographs for the fans. And another autograph poster from the 2007 hockey hall of fame including Messier's signature on it.
I have Dubinsky's rookie gloves which I've photo-matched.. He scored his first goal in the NHL with them. Bought them off of eBay.. Seller had bought it from Meigray.. they were accompanied with a letter from MSG as well.. Very happy with them.

I have a Kevin Lowe game used stick with a great story behind it.
It was durring the season the Rangers won the cup and my dad brought me to my first ever Ranger game which was very exciting as I was 7 or 8 years old at the time. I get there and our seats are on the blue line three rows off the glass. Incredible, to this day I remember how amazing it was in thoes seats. They were playing the Capitals and getting beat pretty badly and so the seats around us start emptying out and at that point a security guard comes over to us and tell us to stay where we were because he may have something for us at the end of the game. We wait in our seats and he comes walking back towards us with a stick that was about the same size I was at the time. I remember running out of the garden with the stick lifted over my head like I had just won a trophy. The stick is in my closet to this very day.
I have a small memorabilia business, a part-time dealer if you will, but I don't bother with the game used stuff. Stuff costs too much money, and in this economy there are just not enough people with the interest and the disposable income. I do have two game used pucks on plaques for MSG Collectibles I picked up if anyone is interested.
