Yeah, if someone will pay that, for either one, I have some ocean-front property in Arizona for sale.

I got a deal on a one-of-a-kind (or 23 of-a-kind) game worn jersey from Glen Wesley Night!  It's the one Michael Ryan used.  It was baught from the organization's charity/silent auction by a Michael Ryan fan up in New York, and he put if up for sale on Ebay.  It's signed by both Ryan and Glen Wesley and came with a COA from the Hurricanes.  I passed it up a handful of times, and as it got cheaper, it got harder to ignore.  So I gave in and got it.

There was a good omen: the same night I saw a signed 8x10 of Michael Ryan... wearing the same jersey I just bought!  So I got that, too... but I'm still waiting for it to come in the mail.  Once I get it, I'll add it to the display - I got a plexiglass display case from pennzoni-display out of Michigan, also on Ebay.  It wasn't cheap, but it looks fantastic.

added a few new sticks to my collection today: Cam Ward - Bauer, Manny Legace- Sher-wood, and I found a Tim Gleason Easton S19 that has Gleason 6 labled on it but on the tape it has a 4 wrote in sharpie so I'm guessing it was from the Olympics

Guys, check this item and the 'buy it now' price on ebay. And please tell me it's just a joke.

That was really good my friend, thanks for pointing it out.  I am pretty sure there is a dare or an inside joke going on here... I did a search on the team and found a list of Ultimate Hockey League teams HERE at Wikipedia.  There is a bunch of funny names in there.

you guys let me know if the picture doesn't load, when i check it on another computer it doesn't show.
Looks great!

What do you use to display your sticks with?  I like how they are off the wall like that.  Mine are up with the quick and dirty method... just nails, until I find a more permanent dwelling.

I use old wood sticks and bolt them to the wall vertically, then put hooks on the old sticks (robe hooks from lowes). Doing this keeps them off the wall and damage free.

I am a Marine currently stationed in California and don't get back home to Carolina very often. How do I go about getting game used sticks? I've looked online and almost never find anything. I will be home Sept 18-30 so I will be able to get to practices and two preseason games and maybe a game against the Kings before I go to Afganastan the end of October so time is kinda short. If anyone can give me any insight as to how to get sticks or where to buy them it would be a huge help. Mainly what I'm looking for are Ward, Jussi, Rutuu, Staal, and Sutter but any would be prized.

I don't have pictures of these, but two items we found that belong to my wife as well are a Bates Battaglia stick blade, with black tape and autographed. The shaft of the blade has HURRICANES printed on one side and BATTAGLIA on the other. The second item, is another stick blade from Kent Manderville, with tape and also autographed. The blade is an Easton and Stamped MANDERVILLE.

Another addition to the collection (since it's been quite a while since I made my original post in this thread) is a red Bauer helmet that was a gift from my wife's brother as well. It was worn during practice and has no markings. It's a size small and is very beat up. I have no idea what player wore it but it got a lot of use. It's cracked and banged up and screws and bolts have been replaced. It would be pretty awesome if it had been worn by Eric Staal or someone, but it's impossible to tell with no numbers or markings.

I got Tim Gleason 2009-2010 gloves, which I believe that they were the ones he used vs Caps. The game he took the puck in the face, then came back to score the shorthanded goal and tie the game. I'm not 100% sure, but I tried to compare to the pic that game.

And I think this is blood.

I wish I had a game used jersey. You all have nice stuff there.

Can anyone help me out on this stick I just picked up.  I bought it from someone who got it directly from the Canes.  It is a Staal model stick and looks like one he has used in lots of pics I saw online.  Here is the catch.  The grip tape is red and has a "17" on it for Brindamour.  Does anyone know if Brindamour might have used a Staal model stick?  I wouldn't think so, but I wanted to get some thoughts on it.  Thanks for looking.

Here are the pics:

Let'sgoCanes72. When Staal still used Easton sticks Brindamour often used his sticks while waiting for replacements for himself. They both use the same curve which is now the Staal curve due to his popularity. Great find. The red tape job is exactly how Brindy does his tape. Another plus is that model of stick was used in the year of the Cup run.
