MeiGray launches 2013-14 Game-Worn Jersey program

NHLThe MeiGray Group has announced its 2013-14 MeiGray Game-Worn Jersey Authentication Program. The program was launched with the start of the new National Hockey League season.

This marks the 11th season that the NHL and MeiGray have worked together on its Game-Worn Jersey Authentication Program. For the 2013-14 campaign, MeiGray has agreements with nine NHL teams: Boston Bruins, Colorado Avalanche, Dallas Stars, Edmonton Oilers, Los Angeles Kings, New Jersey Devils, Nashville Predators, Philadelphia Flyers, Washington Capitals.

MORE FROM MEIGRAY
One of the features of the program is the ability to pre-order your game-worn jersey.

Because of our authenticity and security tagging procedures you can order your game-worn jersey now, watch your jersey as it is being worn on the ice, and then receive it after we obtain the jersey from the team.

Each team has structured its individual game-worn jersey program with MeiGray to best suit its fans and the collecting public.

Our program details remain the same as last season:

* Once the jerseys are available and posted, you can pre-order a jersey online at meigray.com, or by calling us toll-free at 888-463-4472.

* Jerseys available for pre-order online will appear with PRE-ORDER after the Game Type.

* A 25% deposit will hold any jersey until it arrives at MGG. Balances WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY PROCESSED with the same credit card used for the deposit and jerseys will be shipped when they arrive unless the collector specifically notifies MGG to call or e-mail before processing. And in those cases, payment must be made within 10 days of notification or deposit will be forfeited.

* Refunds will not be given on cancelled pre-orders. You may change from one pre-ordered jersey to another, or you can use your deposit without penalty on an individual in-stock retail-priced item of equal or greater value. Only one deposit can be used on an in-stock item if you choose to exchange a pre-order.

* EXCEPTION: Full refunds will be given on pre-orders that cannot be fulfilled by the team or MGG due to non-delivery of the jersey, unavailability of the jersey due to circumstances out of the team or MGG’s control, if a player does not play in the jersey, or if the jersey is retained by the club for historical purposes, or if the jersey cannot be made available due to NHL game circumstances beyond our reasonable control.

As we have been reaching out to each team to plan its inventory, special events, and set dates, we will begin posting team-by-team updates throughout the month.

MeiGray regularly talks to non-program teams about joining or rejoining our program. Announcements regarding additions to the 2013-14 lineup will be made if a team joins or re-joins the program.

Authenticity and Security-Tagging Process

Remains the same as in past seasons. All jerseys are pre-tagged with individual serial numbers, and jerseys are checked post-use by MGG to confirm use as reported by the teams.

Team Reporting Procedures to MGG

Remains the same as in past seasons. Team report the tag numbers as the sets are worn, and update MGG with relevant set information.

Customer Requests/Pre-Ordering

We have on file the team-by-team Customer Request lists, and have begun calling all collectors who have requested the opportunity to Pre-Order 2013-14 jerseys. Once we complete the request calls, we post the available Set 1 jerseys for pre-order on our website.

We will continue to offer our unparalleled level of customer service. We will continue to ensure absolute authenticity because we still maintain the ability to security-check the teams with whom we’re working. We will continue to track the jerseys so you know what was worn, and when.
Thanks for your continued business and loyalty.

We look forward to continuing the high authenticity standards MGG established in 1997 and brought to the NHL in 2002.

MORE FROM THE MEIGRAY GROUP
On October 8, 2011, the Colorado Avalanche honoured a man who had honoured a franchise by giving his all, every game of his career. On Peter Forsberg Night, the great Swedish center’s No. 21 was raised to the Pepsi Center roof prior to the Avs’ 2011-12 NHL opener.

Forsberg’s No. 21 joined Raymond Bourque’s No. 77, Patrick Roy’s No. 33 and Joe Sakic’s No. 19 as the only retired numbers in Avalanche history. Twenty game-worn jerseys and four game-issued jerseys of Avalanche who were not in the lineup during the Avs’ 3-0 loss to the Detroit Red Wings are now up for bid.

The auction ends on Wednesday, Oct. 27, 2011 at 9 pm ET. The five-minute rule applies to each auction. The auction ends when there is no bid on a jersey for five consecutive minutes after the initial end time.

Here’s the link:
Avs Forsberg Night Game-Worn Jersey Auction

The auction includes the NHL Debut jersey of Gabriel Landeskog, the Avs’ 2011 first-round pick and the player chosen second overall in the 2011 NHL draft.

It includes the jersey worn in his Avs’ debut by Semyon Varlamov, who stopped 36 shots.

The Avalanche wore one special set of jerseys, all with Forsberg’s name and No. 21 on the back (in addition to the name of the player wearing it) during the warm up. That set is also up for bid on behalf of Kroenke Sports Charities.

This auction is for each of the special set of jerseys worn during the entire game, each with the unique Forsberg Night Patch over the right breast. Each player wore only one jersey throughout the entire game.

Each jersey was security-tagged before the game, and authenticated by an Avalanche-MGG Program Director immediately after the game.

Every jersey worn throughout the 2011-12 NHL season by the Avalanche contains a uniquely numbered inventory tag sewn into the jersey BEFORE IT IS WORN BY THE PLAYER ON THE ICE. This tag is equipped with covert security features regularly checked by Avs-MGG Program Directors so we can tell who wore the jersey, and when.
