Looks like my grail will never be....

I've been searching for a heck of a long time (as in "several years") for a late-1990s Ottawa 67s authentic. Finally, last week, I see one pop up on eBay. The link is here:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&Item=170533029224&Category=73421&_trkparms=algo%3DLVI%26its%3DI%26otn%3D2

Anyway, I'm of the opinion that it's a beautiful customized authentic that can be stripped and re-done. It's not represented as a gamer, so it's not like the seller is doing anything wrong. Unfortunately, those who are bidding seem to think that it's a gamer. I'm not saying that it's not, but I see no visible wear and the wash tags and fight strap seem awfully intact for a gamer.

So at this point, it's bid up quite a bit past what I'd be willing to do. And, if the buyer operates under the assumption that it's a gamer, it will either never re-enter the hobby or it will with a price way out of skew for an authentic.

I'm not known for venting (ever), so it's clear that this bugs me a little bit.

Well I guess it really depends on how badly you really want that jersey. If it's the only one you've ever found on ebay, then I would say it's quite a rare item. And you never really know if it will pop up again, unless you are willing to potentially wait another long period for this jersey to show up again. Me personally, if it was one of my grails, I'd take a stab at it, unless it was WAY WAY WAY out of my price range. Bottom line is it's your call.

There are a bunch of guys selling gamers from that era for juts a tad more than that one went on eBay at gameworn.net. Just ask around and you'll get a reasonably priced Ottawa 67's jersey trust me.

EDIT: You said you were looking for an authentic, but I was trying to say you may be able to find a gamer for the same price seeing as there are few retail authentics out there.

There's another one for sale, but it's from Larionov's side.

Kris Draper game worn though... not bad! What was the story behind this game anyways? How did all these guys come together for it?
