    @RidleySimon must roll his eyes at that.

    Man, there is some bad customization work in there.

    I don’t mean to be crass — but that is *nothing*.

    I think it’s more about the Cup team, which admittedly I don’t have a few of.

    but — yeah. I’ve got like 10x that. It’s not an exaggeration — it’s a sickness

    I fancy myself a bit of a collector, and I don't get what you mean by "bad customization". The all look like standard off the rack jerseys to me.

    Probably 400....so a little hyperbole I guess. I saw 35 or so from that pick didn’t read the article. If he’s got 60 then that’s not all bad at all.

    And yes...many of mine are in suitcases in my garage. I only hang the ones I actually want to wear. I’ve also got about 30 UNH Hockey ones. My alma-mater. None from anyone else. Caps and Wildcats

    I’m going to sell a bunch of the lower level ones, keeping the game worns and signed ones. So that’s about 200

    Ah, the article says it's just part of his collection. "As for his whole collection? Murphy joked that he doesn’t even want to estimate how much he’s spent on the 60-plus sweaters hanging in the closet of his man cave.
    “More than I would be willing to for my wife to see in print,” he joked."


    Curious, do you have plans for your jerseys or is it just the chase of getting them that's the fun for you?

    I just like having them. So probably part chase and part exotic satisfaction. My 15mo old son loves them. He’s constantly grabbing them and pulling them off of their hangers. So they will be his.

    This is around 200. Maybe like 190....all wedged together in my side of our closet. I haven’t counted recently. All the ones I like to wear and the most expensive ones. (All game worn, or team to player issued, or signed authentics)

    upload_2020-2-1_11-22-2.jpeg

    Rest are in suitcases in the garage. Around another 175 or so. Not exactly sure. I’m going to sell most of those.

    all that said, I don’t have any duplicate jerseys (same player and same exact type — so red or white and retro and blue/black/eagle etc). I may upgrade some of the ones that I’m selling of the same exact type. But I haven’t seen one yet

    As I’ve stated a few times....it’s a sickness. I would think I’ve got one of the top 5 or so collections of Caps jerseys. Maybe not. I have no idea. I’ve seen some on eBay for like 7000 or more (Ovechkin, Langway, Bondra, Oates game worns....), and I just can’t buy those until my kids are comfortably in college or whatever.

    Or I win the lotto!!!

    PS — it’s good to show it once in a while so new posters don’t think I’m full of crap. LOL

    I guess I'm too much of a jersey snob. If I don't have a game worn or game issued, I'll get an authentic and send it to Exclusive Pro Sports, who does the Caps jersey, for customization, so it matches what is worn on the ice.

    Looking at the jerseys in his picture, the letter font size is all over the place. As an easy example (and there are a lot of examples), at the lower right of the picture, compare the "LY" in Connolly to the "LY" in Smith-Pelly. The DSP jersey letters are much thicker (and closer to correct). Lots of examples like that. And you can't even see the numbers to see what's going on there.

    Sorry if I'm too much of a pedant. I look at that picture and cringe. I can't help it. It's a sickness.

    Thanks.

    I also made sure the game issued Jagr black 68 was covered by the game worn Steckel black 70 in the bottom right (also see the game issued Oates black 77)....as this picture was for you.

    LOL. Didn’t need the Jagr 68 hanging out there

    Hard Pass from this guy. Puffnuts never actually rocked the Red. So it’s a made up jersey. Doesn’t fly for me.

    I could comment on the bad customization on this jersey, but that might offend @Skrudland2Lomakin. So I won't. ;)

    As refenced by @Ridley Simon, just say no to Jagr.

    Tagging me in a post to gripe about perceived slights against your commitment to perfect customization isn’t doing a lot of favors in dissuading the Patrick Bateman comparison.

    Any guess how much you’ve spent on them all? And where do you mainly buy them? Online?
