Sabres Collectibles

My question is: What is the most collectible item for a Buffalo Sabres fan to own?

My favorite is my hockey stick signed by the 73-74 Sabres including Tim Horton. I was 12 or 13 years old and the Sabres came to our school's gym to show highlights of the Sabres. I had never seen highlights of past goals. There was no Sportscenter or ways of rewatching games unless some network reaired a show. They had a raffle and we won.

I just have a Miller jersey (with the "slug" logo... I hate saying that cause it hurts it feels insulting. I just say the 2007-2010 jerseys.) It was my first ever hockey jersey cause Miller was, is my idol and I got it signed by him when i saw him at the Garden 4 years ago

Are you referring to a hockey item? Because "most collectible" to me, means also most rare, therefore worth the most.

Maybe ... Punch Imlachs car? Scotty Bowman's tie when he coached his first game? Rick Martin's first signed contract with the Sabres? It's all a matter of perspective and personal worth. And how rare it truly is.

Probably those swords they gave out to the first season ticket holders.

Edit: Here's a thread by a guy who had one http://hfboards.hockeysfuture.com/sh...d.php?t=543707

I think it would have to be something like the rare Commemorative Sword. (Does anyone know how many were given out?)
Or perhaps you have been searching for a copy of "A Spin of the Wheel" by Ross Brewitt. (Amazon has a few Used copies from time to time.)
I'm not a collector of ticket stubs or media guides. But perhaps someone has a cool game-worn jersey from a favorite player. How awesome was the post about winning the stick from the 73-74 Sabres team. Hope that made Ron a fan for life.

Ive been lucky enough in my life to have access to a lot of Sabres legends. Id say my most valuable collectible is my Rick Martin puck (obvious reasons). It will never leave its place next to my Perreault and Robert ones

This is my favorite. At this point in his career, it's a fringe 'Sabres' collectible, but counts for me. It's a Marcus Foligno game-worn from his time in Sudbury.

I have an authentic white early 90īs jersey signed by Lafontaine and Rick Martin among others, wich means a lot to me, because I live in Sweden and donīt get so many chances to see the heroes.

The holy grail for me would probably be a Hasek/Perrault/Horton game worn jersey.

I have a complete set of season tickets from the last season in the Aud. None ripped, all in the original binder they came in. Given to me by the late Jim Kelley as a thank you for some work I did for him.

Something I'll never get rid of.

I have a game used Hasek goalie stick signed by him, easily my most valuable collectible. It's awesome because it's got tons of puck marks, coloring on the tape etc.

Damn, I recently just got a pair of similar Reebok shoes, definitely would have gotten those instead if I knew about them.
