Anybody head over to this year’s locker room sale? I have been checking the team’s social media feeds but the posts have been pretty sparse.

I expect it was pretty much the same old, same old. The only player that I saw mentioned as attending was Craig Roh and that was from his twitter feed.

I was pretty much wondering if we missed an absolute gem or if we were wise to give it a miss. We needed a break from travelling on the ferry.

I attended this year's event and thought it was very well organized (would be nice one of these years to let the early birds wait inside Gate C instead of standing outside. It's under cover but a little chilly).

Anyway, kudos to the Lions for a job well done. Lots of merchandise from which to choose. They had 2017 game worns (I picked up a Junior Luke for $250), but the hot sellers looked to be game worns from past years going for $50. A lot of the Adidas apparel was 30% off.

For a damaged brand, I believe it was very well attended. When I left at about 10:45am I'd say about 150 people had either been through or were waiting to get in as part of the next wave. They had a Christmas themed photo op, a pancake breakfast (choice of pancakes or breakfast wraps + coffee = FREE) and Wally and Ed were also there. :thup:

For me it was very disappointing compared to previous years. The $50 Rebok game used jerseys were nice, but mostly players who didn't sell in previous years. Guys who were never stars, and some who may have only been in the lineup for pre-season. About what you would expect for that price point though so not a huge complaint. My complaint is that the sale for merchandise was only 30%. It was a flat 30% off everything, whereas in past years they would have clearance items for $5 or $10. Some items would be 50% off, others 30%. For season ticket holders who receive 15% off at the games, an extra 15% on top of that felt quite underwhelming.

Game used helmets were $300 (down from $350 last year), and jerseys were $250 which is a good deal compared to previous years.

Didn't spend too much time at it as I was disappointed by it. The food was OK. Pancakes weren't very hot, and the breakfast burrito was just OK. Nice that it's free at least.

I liked the added touch of a Santa Clause picture set, good for the kids.

Also liked that Wally and Ed Hervey where there to talk to the fans. I saw them both on my way out.

$50 bucks for a pro game used jersey? Steal. Regardless of who wore it (and you're not going to find an Adam Bighill for that price, so it came as no surprise that these were lesser knowns).

The biggest rip-off I could find was last year's media guide (2017) going for $20.00. Seriously? I mean, $5.00, sure. Would have bought it. Max $10.00.

I did find some nice Adidas items for Christmas gifts at 30% off. I wasn't complaining.

This drives me crazy. Auction this stuff off if it doesn't sell. This isn't rocket science. You purport to be a franchise that represents an entire province, yet do nothing to make events like this accessible to fans who can't make these sales in person.

The Schmoes have an online auction that includes a few jerseys and signed items. They also auctioned off the uprights wrap from the Pink Day game.

It only takes a phone call to the Lions office after the locker room sale. That's how I got my Olafioye game helmet and home game-worn jersey. I bought it a few days after the 2015 locker room sale and they shipped it to me. It's also how I got my Ty Chatman jersey several years ago. I just called them up and asked if they had any leftovers for game used gear.

I wonder if that was a simple error of omission of the discount on the media guide. You can buy it for $10, marked down from $20, through the Lions online store on their website.

Aw. You shouldn't have told me that BCF. I managed to show some constraint and avoided calling the office this week. I just had to look after your post. Willpower is fading.

But hey for the married folks out there they have a nice his and hers set of game worn home jerseys. For the man there as a Husband jersey. For the little woman or significant other there's a Yell jersey. ;)

Ha! My wife’s a big Purifoy fan so I had to show her that his gear is available. Fortunately I just bought her a gift today so there was no temptation to indulge. But now you’ve got me thinking about a Husband jersey ...

We did matching jerseys from last year’s locker room sale, home and away Steward jerseys. His jersey is like a night dress on my wife but we wanted to show united support for the sort of local Victoria lad.
I grabbed the home jersey for JJ24 from the current online sale, I was surprised it was available but happy it was..

Now see, how hard was that? A game used home helmet will make a nice addition to the man cave. All they had to do was put the stuff online.
