The 2014 Detroit-Toledo Expo is right around the corner, and we can’t wait to be there. The show is Saturday, November 8, so it’s time to announce the first annual Detroit-Toledo Expo Grab Bag.
Each Grab Bag is only $195, and the odds are great on this one, whether you plan to attend the show or want your Grab Bag shipped. Only 30 Grab Bags will be offered, with 5-to-1 odds that you will win one of these great gamers:
* Sergei Bobrovsky, Columbus Blue Jackets, Third Set 1, 2014-15. Retail price, $1,995.
* Chris Chelios, Detroit Red Wings, Red Set 1, 2000-01. Retail price, $1,795.
* Scott Hartnell, Philadelphia Flyers, White Set 3/Playoffs w/A, 2013-14. Retail price, $1,250.
* Nathan Horton, Florida Panthers, White Set 1, 2005-06. Retail price, $750.
* Nick Foligno, Ottawa Senators, Red Set 1, 2009-10. Retail price, $595.
* Curtis McElhinney, Calgary Flames, White Set 1, 2008-09. Retail price, $450.
The other 24 Grab Bags will contain either an ECHL Toledo Storm or ECHL Toledo Walleye game-worn jersey. Each Toledo ECHL gamer is valued at $250-$395.
Please note: Bobrovsky is currently wearing his Third now (he wears three jerseys in every game, so this will be one of only three Thirds he wears all season. The jersey will be delivered to the winner delivered after the 2014-15 NHL season). The winning box will contain a decoy jersey (to insure the weight on all boxes is the same) and a voucher for the Bobrovsky.
To insure proper Grab Bag protocol, we will package all 30 Grab Bags in the MeiGray office. Grab Bag participants will pre-select their Grab Bag number when they order. That number will be placed on its respective Grab Bag box. The Grab Bags ordered by Expo attendees will be on display in Toledo and opened at the show.
The remaining Grab Bags will be shipped on Monday, November 10.
Here’s the link:
Shipping is $20 in the US, $25 Alaska/Hawaii, $40 via UPS Expedited in Canada, $60-$80 overseas (depending upon country).
All Grab bags must be paid in full via credit card or PayPal.
MGG will not know who wins which jersey until collectors call or e-mail us to register their jerseys. All Grab Bag purchases will be final. No exchanges or trades.
Good luck everybody, and we hope to see you in Toledo on Saturday, November 8.
