Game-worn jerseys are not made of gold and diamonds. Most of the time, they are in a pretty bad shape. Sometimes they even smell bad… but they are still one of the most wanted collectibles out there.
Jersey collectors know that when you are buying a game-worn jersey, you are actually buying the feeling that the player had when he wore it on the ice. You are buying the emotions. You are buying the impregnated sweat and blood that reflects what it means to play professional sports. And some jerseys have more to say.
Here’s a list of the 10 most expensive game-worn jerseys ever sold in a Classic Auctions’ online auction.
