Avalanche Stuff Watch™

The latest and greatest Avalanche-related junk from around the internets (it's not a dump truck!).

Item #1:

Available from the MeiGray Group, a Paul Kariya game-worn jersey from the 2003-04 season for the completely reasonable price of $2995. Hopefully the buyer scores more wearing the jersey than Kariya did that year.

Item #2:

On eBay, a CCM helmet (complete with Avs logo on the side) autographed by Joe Sakic. So far no bids, but you can skip the troublesome auction process and just drop $299 right now. There's no word on the size, though, so your dreams of streaking the next local pee-wee hockey game wearing only a Sakic-signed brain bucket may be thwarted by an undersized...helmet.

Item #3:

Also on ebay, a certified mint Patrick Roy rookie card from the O-Pee-Chee set of 1986. You can own this extremely valuable piece of cardboard and ink right now for just $399. And you better hurry, because the offer ends tomorrow, and then your chance to throw your children's college money away---one hockey card at a time---will slip through your fingers.

Item #4:

Speaking of kiddies, you can distract them from the financial demolition of their educational future by getting them a Colorado Avalanche Die Cast Tractor Trailer from (oddly enough) MLB.com. With a price of only $12.99, you'll barely even notice that you fell for a cheap marketing ploy and bought something with absolutely no relation to hockey whatsoever. Go for it!

Meigray tends to do massive sales, so picking up an Avs game worn of a lesser loved player (did I just say that about Kariya?) is much cheaper than you might think. My Dan Hinote (a well loved player) was on sale for quite a bit less then you would think.

Of course, you could go the other way, and get a minor or European gamer of a current or former Avs. I have a Russian jersey of a former Avs who played only 3 games in the NHL, but it's still quite a story for people who see it.

What's interesting to me is that MeiGray has a game-worn jersey of Ray Macias for dirt cheap. Since he's only just begun his career, there's a potential that the price could shoot up in the next few years. Probably worth picking up now, if I were someone who collects game-worn jerseys. I'm not. But if I was, I would buy it.
