Trevor Gillies was at a fan meet and greet for his current team, so he was unable to attend.
On this episode, we discussed the new Adidas practice jerseys, Vegas Golden Knights inaugural jersey offerings and some St. Louis Blues news that was huge for a few collectors that were in on the information but a disappointment to those that missed out. $50 Paul Kariya Blues Jersey…Yea…
On this episode of Game Worn Radio, we had Trevor Gillies join us. You get a little bit of bonus footage from this broadcast. The pre-show banter was so good, we started broadcasting before the show start time.
We had an awesome time talking to Trevor about his journey through the hockey system on his path to the NHL, the current state of the NHL and his role in hockey. We had a moment to talk to him about the jerseys and equipment he has and recently sold. He even gave us some inside tips on how other players can stock up a little bit on their own equipment by greasing equipment managers and staff.
Even after the show ended, we talked to Trevor for over an hour. He had such a good time, he said he would drop in on other shows we have when he is not busy.
Fun fact: Trevor fought 6 of the 8 groomsmen in his wedding.
Our next broadcast of Game Worn Radio is set to return tomorrow night at 9PM Eastern. There is the possibility that Trevor Gillies will be joining the show for a bit, so we will be limiting the call to 8 callers.
To best keep our avid listeners informed, Game Worn Radio will be taking a short hiatus from broadcasting this week as our host recovers from illness. We will post our next broadcast once it is scheduled. Thank you for listening!
We originally planned to have Mike Sgroi on however he was feeling under the weather and there was a hurricane coming so we had to reschedule.
Instead, we discussed some recent events that happened in the hobby which included a Fanatics sales rep that attempted to guilt a potential customer after the customer did not commit to a purchase after negotiations.
We also discussed an incident where a collector reported another as a bad seller/trader but offered no explanation after multiple requests to furnish more information.
You don’t want to miss this! Mike Sgroi is scheduled to be on the next episode of Game Worn Radio on September 5th at 9PM Eastern. Set your calendars and make sure to tune-in Live! We will be talking with Mike about his experiences in hockey and getting his opinion on our hobby.
Mike is a well known professional hockey enforcer who now works with youth hockey and MMA. He has had a number of stints with various teams. You can view his game stats here. You can also view his hockey fight cards here.
This show will be limited to 8 total callers. Questions for Mike can be pre-submitted to our Facebook Group.
On this episode of Game Worn Radio we discussed the art of trading and why it seems that trading has become so difficult lately. What the difference between perceived valuations and retail valuations are and how it can affect trades.
Casey also joined us during the show, and after a little bit of rib jabbing helped us talk about the current health of the vintage market.
