Picked Up My First Game Worn Jersey

Hey, sorry I haven't posted in a while.  I haven't had many maildays because I just spent a bunch of money on this.  I don't usually post much hockey stuff, but I am a huge hockey fan.  While I have been a little insane with the lockout, I am lucky enough to have an AHL team in the next city over that I can follow, the Worcester Sharks. Well, I have gone to quite a few of there games, but I always feel wierd because I don't have any Sharks gear to wear. They sell replicas at the pro shop, but I really perfer "authentic jerseys" with a name and number on the back. As some of you may know, the only way to get one of these is to buy a game used jersey. After saving up and doing some research, I settled on a Jon Landry jersey. Here are some pictures...

Now, I know Landry is not a star or even on the team anymore, but there is a different reason why I chose this jersey. My last name is also Landry, so now I own a jersey with my own name on it. I doubt many others can say that. The jersey is in great shape with no stains or tears. The patchwork looks geat. Now I can feel like a real fan when I go to games! Also, while I was at the game, I met Patriots Star Running Back, Kevin Faulk.  I will post about that next time.  Just thought I'd share.

Supercollector Sharing Hour

Hey, everyone. I've been swamped with school lately so posting has become difficult. I'm going to try to be more consistent with these posts, fortunately.

So, as you are all aware, 20youksox is a Kevin Youkilis supercollector. His collection is astounding to see on a website such as photobucket or Beckett, but in person it is even more amazing. Organized by patches, autographs, 1/1; a wide variety of subtopics.

So, on that note, are there any other supercollectors who would like to share their player they supercollect and some of their collection by posting a link to a photobucket or even commenting with a few links to some of their favorite cards? Personally, I collect almost any Red Sox player, yet I have a special affinity for Will Middlebrooks, Dustin Pedroia, and Jon Lester...but I don't "supercollect" so to speak. If anything I had thought about getting an Adrian Gonzalez one going and, well...we all know how that turned out. Anyways, feel free to comment below, we'd love to hear from you!
