  • Welcome to the 2015-16 MGG Game-Worn Jersey Program

    Hi everybody,

    Welcome to the 2015-16 MeiGray Game-Worn Jersey Authentication Program.

    This is the program developed by the National Hockey League and MeiGray in 2002. It’s the only Game-Worn Jersey Authentication Program that has been endorsed by the NHL and recommended to its member clubs.

    For 2015-16, MeiGray has agreements with these 9 clubs: Boston, Columbus, Dallas, Edmonton, Los Angeles, New Jersey, Nashville, Philadelphia and Washington.

    We have expanded our deal with the Nashville Predators, who will be hosting the 2016 NHL All-Star Game. We will be marketing both sets of Predators’ jerseys, along with their Game and Goal Pucks. And we will host our NHL All-Star Game-Worn Jersey Display and stock an exhibit at the NHL Fan Fair in Nashville.

    A few Opening Week highlights:
    • MeiGray was at Scottrade Center to authenticate the first jerseys ever worn by the Oilers’ Connor McDavid, who was the first overall pick in the 2015 NHL Draft. The 18-year-old projected superstar wore four white jerseys in St. Louis: One in the pregame warmup and one in each period of his NHL Debut. The Oilers retained his warmup jersey for their archives and retained his first period jersey to present to McDavid. MeiGray took pre-orders and sold the jerseys McDavid wore in Period 2 and Period 3.
    • Dallas Stars Authenticated by MeiGray kicked off its second season. Our kiosk stocks Stars’ game-worn items in real time, so please stop by and say hello. This season the Stars and MeiGray are authenticating WarmUp Pucks that have the exact date of the game and the logos of the Stars and their opponents. It’s a great game-used item for collectors and fans.
    One of the features of the MeiGray Authentication Program is the ability to pre-order your game-worn jersey. Because of our authenticity and security tagging procedures you can order your game-worn jersey now, watch your jersey as it is being worn on the ice, and then receive it after we obtain the jersey from the team.

    Each team has structured its individual game-worn jersey program with MeiGray to best suit its fans and the collecting public.

    As in past seasons, we are taking pre-orders . Our program details remain the same as last season:

    • Once the jerseys are available and posted, you can pre-order a jersey online at, or by calling us toll-free at 888-463-4472.

    • Jerseys available for pre-order online will appear with PRE-ORDER after the Game Type.

    • A 25% deposit will hold any jersey until it arrives at MGG. Balances WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY PROCESSED with the same credit card used for the deposit and jerseys will be shipped when they arrive unless the collector specifically notifies MGG to call or e-mail before processing. And in those cases, payment must be made within 10 days of notification or deposit will be forfeited.

    • Refunds will not be given on cancelled pre-orders. You may change from one pre-ordered jersey to another, or you can use your deposit without penalty on an individual in-stock retail-priced item of equal or greater value. Only one deposit can be used on an in-stock item if you choose to exchange a pre-order.

    • EXCEPTION: Full refunds will be given on pre-orders that cannot be fulfilled by the team or MGG due to non-delivery of the jersey, unavailability of the jersey due to circumstances out of the team or MGG’s control, if a player does not play in the jersey, or if the jersey is retained by the club for historical purposes, or if the jersey cannot be made available due to NHL game circumstances beyond our reasonable control.
    As we have been reaching out to each team to plan its inventory, special events, and set dates, we will begin posting team-by-team updates throughout the month.
    MeiGray regularly talks to non-program teams about joining or rejoining our program. Announcements regarding additions to the 2015-16 lineup will be made if a team joins or re-joins the program.

    Authenticity and Security-Tagging Process
    Remains the same as in past seasons. All jerseys are pre-tagged with individual serial numbers, and jerseys are checked post-use by MGG to confirm use as reported by the teams.

    Team Reporting Procedures to MGG
    Remains the same as in past seasons. Team report the tag numbers as the sets are worn, and update MGG with relevant set information.

    Customer Requests/Pre-Ordering
    We have on file the team-by-team Customer Request lists, and have begun calling all collectors who have requested the opportunity to Pre-Order 2015-16 jerseys. Once we complete the request calls, we post the available Set 1 jerseys for pre-order on our website.

    We will continue to offer our unparalleled level of customer service. We will continue to ensure absolute authenticity because we still maintain the ability to security-check the teams with whom we're working. We will continue to track the jerseys so you know what was worn, and when.

    Thanks for your continued business and loyalty.

    We look forward to continuing the high authenticity standards MGG established in 1997 and brought to the NHL in 2002.

    Thanks, Barry
