I think that this is the first game that both Johnsons have been playing. Aaron has been scratched the past few games.

Once again, I'm jealous of your pickups. I just wish I had the same contacts you did.

Heard on the radio that the team shop is doing free nameplate replacements tonight from Carter to J. Johnson (while supplies last).

That's awesome. Methot was already over $500, so my wife and I walked away with frowns...

She was also determined to win. I heard her say something to the effect that she had over $7000 she was planning to spend. She also had people positioned by each jersey she wanted in the final minute to rebid for her in case she was outbid.

The green jerseys are nice but the price was silly for a jersey worn a total of 20 minutes and in some cases not worn at all. For the price those were going, you could walk down the aisle to the gameworn booth and get a Dorsett or Methot with much more wear and cheaper.

The funniest thing I saw, a woman was sniffing the armpit of Umby 18's jersey.

Yeah the prices for these type of jerseys is always nuts, but that's what happens in charity auctions.

That is crazy. I for a brief moment considered going to 500 for the Nikitin jersey since it was for charity and considered the potential tax writeoff. Then I realized it was still a green jersey and I would prefer to drop that kind of dime for an actual game worn of some kind or even find a better use for the money.

I agree that it can get kind of crazy to spend that kind of money on a warmup jersey. I can't believe the Jack Johnson went for $4200. Sheesh. Certainly people get a bit carried away, but I like the support and I suppose for the big donors it's better to make a splash and get a jersey out of it than just writing a check to them.

Despite the relative lameness of these versus actual gamers, I was really determined to win one this year, both for the charity aspect since I didn't go to the black tie party, and because I guess I just wanted an example. I had an O'Brassard once, but it didn't fit and I have a rule about buying jerseys I can't wear so I sold it. I worked out a deal with my better half and we decided to go for one. I had hoped to win the Sanford, and was high bidder until the 2nd intermission when some guy outbid me by $225. At that point I considered my alternates, Dorsett, Mason, Ryan Russell (don't laugh), and some others that were still 'reasonable'. Then I noticed that the Prospal was still lower than I thought it would be, so I put in a bid and hoped that the big fish stayed away from it. Sure enough, one last guy looked at it with less than a minute to go, but didn't bid, so I won it for quite a bit less than other players of his stature on the team. Frankly, I feel like it was a great bang for the buck in the context of these jerseys.

Was it too much compared to what gamers cost? Yeah, sure. I have better jerseys that were cheaper for sure...Voracek's junior, Methot's rookie, Vermette third...but hey, we did it, it went to the foundation and we're cool with that.

That's great. I didn't even notice the name. I came a hair close to sniping it if someone had outbid me on Vinny's. I would have felt terrible about that one!

It was funny that originally, it looked like the bid was $750 and then someone marked it as a 1 instead of a 7, and bids followed. This was on Thursday. When we looked at it today, it was corrected

Practice jersey or not, it's still better quality than the Indo-Edge.

Nice. I didn't realize MonkeySports was doing the customization. I've been on their website and they are having a sale on the jerseys they have in stock and including free customization on authentics. (no CBJ in stock on the site but they do have replicas in stock and those are one sale too) Seeing their work in person would make me feel better about buying one. I'd been considering an authentic Coyotes 3rd Ray Whitney jersey but haven't pulled the trigger.
