As you engage more in the hobby, you will start to see more collectors advising that research is far more important than an LOA. Some collectors will go even further to say that an LOA is worth nothing. This is a case where research is paramount.
Recently, our partner, the Syracuse Crunch, sent us a handful of jerseys to make available to collectors. To our surprise, there was a Jonathan Drouin jersey in the mix. Since this jersey would not have come from the most recent year, the information for the jersey would be hard to remember and piece together. After giving the jersey a quick look over and not seeing any obvious wear, it was assumed to be game issued.
Once we inspected the jersey, we did in fact find wear. There were burn marks on one of the sleeves and some faint rub on the lower front of the jersey. The jersey definitely showed evidence of wear, so the research begins.
The Toledo Walleye are offering 17 game worn jerseys starting at 11am Saturday, August 12th. 7 White jerseys and 10 Black jerseys. To see the list, click here. Jerseys are one per person.
Reports are coming in from social media that the line started on Friday at 9PM. As of 5AM Saturday, there were 6 people. Reports are that the first person in line is after the Jeff Lerg and the next person wants the Tyson Spink.
