Ummmmmmm yeah, well, ummmmmm, yeah that’s a game used jersey for sure. Ohhhhhhh ummmmm yeah well I don’t know how that price tag got on it, or how there is not other wear and tear on it either. Ha Ha Ha
Oh yeah and ummmmmm that price tag has some “style” markings on it too. You know like the kind of label you find on all “Authentic” merchandise in team stores at arena’s around the world!
Well turns out the problem with this beauty is that Scott Galbraith, an avid hockey jersey collector from London, Ont., is claiming, in a civil suit, that he paid over $3,500 for a Mitch Marner Knights game used jersey in an auction and was handed a this one he claims is a fake.
In the lawsuit Galbraith’s attorney says “the jersey issued to him was brand new and never worn in any games during the regular season, play-offs, or the Memorial Cup tournament, nor was it the jersey posted in photographs on the CHL auction website.”
Ummmmmm yeah, that’s not quite the definition of a game worn jersey if the attorney is making a true statement.
See the Black jersey was the Knights third jersey. Its not like they had a bunch of them that would have been game worn anyway. Ohhhhhh yeah and the one Marner was wearing when they won the Memorial Cup was shipped to the Hockey Hall of Fame.
Snap….The Hockey Hall of Fame said to the local press yesterday “returned to the Knights earlier today per arrangements made last week.” Crazy huh? I mean the HHOF would return a jersey in the middle of such controversy?
Yeah this is some special stuff here. I mean a game worn jersey is easy to spot. Its easy to see board burn, puck marks, and other notable stuff. This one allegedly didn’t even look like the fight strap was ever touched. Ohhhhhh yeah, and that price tag thing, ummmmmm yeah, lets think about that one and figure it out later.
This is a disaster. If this is found to be true, and the Knights are guilty, how can anyone trust anything they sell as game worn ever again?
Lets hear it for Scott Galbraith though. Hell yeah Scott! I hope you get every dime of the $100,000.00 you are asking for. The only way to teach people money a lesson is to take some away from them.
