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.

Great Gretzky re-signed by the Upper Deck Company

NHLThe Upper Deck Company has signed Wayne Gretzky to a new contract for signed memorabilia and exclusive use on trading cards.

“As Upper Deck approaches its 25th Anniversary, the announcement of our expanded partnership with Wayne Gretzky couldn’t be better,” said Jason Masherah, president of Upper Deck. “While Upper Deck collectors continue to get excited about pulling Gretzky autographs from our hockey card packs, puck fans can now look forward to an amazing portfolio of Wayne Gretzky autographed memorabilia as well. We will offer several unique memorabilia pieces that are sure to be a hit with Gretzky fans everywhere.”

MORE FROM THE UPPER DECK COMPANY
A few highlights of the new collection include a “Tegata” print, a traditional form of Japanese memorabilia reserved only for the most elite athletes. The Gretzky Tegata will showcase an actual inked hand print, displayed over an intricate mosaic background featuring his most famous moments and action shots.

“The Show” will offer collectors the largest Wayne Gretzky autographed display ever produced. This Upper Deck exclusive piece will measure a whopping 46 by 20 inches, and features a colossal signature over two feet in length alongside an action packed shot of Gretzky. Upper Deck will also produce a series of limited edition “Curve” displays, where a unique Gretzky image and autographed puck combine for a dramatic visual inside of a dynamic 8.5″ x 11″ curve-shaped display.

Upper Deck will share details on compelling new Wayne Gretzky collectibles in the coming weeks with many items available for fans to purchase through the company’s new online store (www.upperdeckstore.com). Wayne Gretzky joins Michael Jordan, LeBron James, Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy and Landon Donovan as exclusive athletes for Upper Deck.

“We have enjoyed a great relationship with Hockey Canada and are very happy to bring Canadian hockey fans collectibles and trading cards featuring players from their beloved national team,” said Jason Masherah, president of Upper Deck. “Fans can expect Upper Deck to branch out by creating some compelling trading card releases for Hockey Canada in the future, while continuing to deliver meaningful content to existing hockey and multi-sport products.”
