So I was thinking the other day that I haven't bought a jersey in months. I haven't even been looking that much either. I don't know whether subconsciously I'm watching the pennies more because of the recession we find ourselves in, I know I'm getting less money with no pay rise and everything costing more. Or is it because it's the offseason and not much is happening in the league. I got to thinking have I peaked? I've got nearly every style the Bills have worn, I've got jerseys from my favourite players, I fulfilled my dream of going to Ralph Wilson stadium in buffalo last year.


Have any if you gone through this and come out the other side? Let me know your thoughts

I've just gone through it myself a little. I'm looking at buying again now. The thing is if you keep buying a jersey every week then you'll have too many and there won't be much left to buy! It's seeing something you want that's exciting about collecting in my opinion.

Plus I still have to get to cowboys stadium. Or even a London game! I don't really know anyone who'd come with me and I don't fancy it on my own

I've gone through this twice. Once you thought you were out, they pull you back in!

I am into buying MLB jerseys lately. Gamer jerseys in fact. A HELL of a lot cheaper and they can be worn nicely.

Save your $, you will be happy you did.

I've gone through this before. I don't usually buy a jersey unless I REALLY want it or have it near the top of my want list. If it's near the middle or bottom, then the desire does not outweigh spending the money. At one point I went a few to several months without buying, so it's definitely possible. It boils down to creating a plan and sticking to it. There will be distractions and temptations along the way. You just have to exercise self-control. Smile

No problem. Glad I can help. I always see it like this. I love my jerseys, but I don't see them as "needs", meaning they are not necessities in my life. Personally, I'd rather have the cost of a jersey available just in case an emergency or urgent situation arises. On the other hand it is good to spend money on one's hobbies and joys. You can also go with a budget, and spend that amount every month or so. I have done that in the past and it works.

I understand where you're coming from ive been through this before, as far as jerseys go the last one i bought was my luck elite jersey and that was over a year ago. i have every jersey i want, except for a few that are hard for me to find. for me the excitement comes from going to the games, ive been to lucas oil a couple of times, but being from los angeles it's hard for me to get out there every year. i mostly go to away games with my dad and friends now, the road trip aspect is fun and the heat you get from the home team fans is even better (especially when your team wins). Im going to colts @niners, colts @san diego, and colts @arizona this year and i cant wait!

This is just another shameless plug for your holiday to Tenerife. Suspect

Nice. That's awesome you have currently fulfilled your jersey wants. I hope to eventually reach that point. Quite an accomplishment, in my opinion.

Its the offseason man. I find myself slowly getting back into jerseys and even this forum the closer we get to the regular season.

I went through the same thing over the last year. The first couple of years I was collecting jerseys, I just jumped on every authentic I came across, and wound up with way too many. I slowly down-sized my collection (whilst still buying others) and focussed on priorities - mostly my Bucs stuff.

My budget has definitely changed having recently bought a house and with baby on the way, but I'm enjoying looking around with potential to buy if I find the right thing, but not buying a jersey just because it's cheap.

I also just enjoy having a pretty steady collection, but still participating in forums etc, and helping newer members out with legit checks etc. I must admit though, finding it a bit more difficult to tell Nike fakes, apart from the really bad ones.

Anyway, just echoing what the other guys have said. I'm sure you'll go through cycles, but keep coming back. I have a few baseball and basketball jerseys too - diversifying can keep it interesting.

I hear ya RJ. I'm thinking of downsizing but every time I do I find reasons to keep everyone of them. I'm sure Mrs Billsfan would be ecstatic if I sold a few though.
