    I accidentally clicked to the last page of posts on this forum (or, the first posts in this forum if you will) and happened upon this classic: http://forums.thephins.com/showthre...sed-Autographed-John-Beck-Jersey-is-going-for! Some maniacal Dolphan ended up paying in excess of 7,000 dollars for a Beck autographed game-used jersey :lol: The following year Beck was a third stringer and never played another down for the Dolphins during the regular season again. I suppose it's not just the front office investing so much into a young QB

    As funny (or sad) as that is, I have similar luck with jerseys. I bought a McMichael jersey like 2-3 months before he was gone from our team. I had a Ricky Williams jersey that I stupidly got rid of after the 2004 debacle. After I got rid of that, I needed a new Phins gameday jersey so i got a Welker. Had that until he was traded away. Got a Ginn jersey as a present after his first year here (back when we thought he had promise and was going to improve). Well, I can't wear that jersey again. :lol:

    So I buy an orange Henne jersey last year. [​IMG]

    Given my track record, I'm afraid to buy another Dolphins jersey. Wait. Does Dan Henning have a jersey? Maybe I'll buy that one. :lol:

    Please don't go buy a Cam Wake jersey.

    Or Marshall, Bess, Long, Davis, Smith, Clemons, Dansby, Misi, Odrick, Langford.

    I suggest you go get a Crowder, McQuistan, or Kevin Curtis jersey.

    Your best bet is to pick an item whose displayed name is already in the HOF .Csonka,Marino,

    If you want to be current how about Jake Long .He is the only player on the squad who is likely to stand the test of time.

    Why don't you buy a player who has a future?

    All of those guys seemed like busts except Williams.

    I've had an Orange Ronnie Brown since he was drafted.

    Henne may be the guy. But thats hard to see. You can get a Henne at Marshalls for 25 bucks now. As well as an Oppherdhal, Duper, and Taylor. (In Sawgrass Mills).

    Long may be the guy to get, also Bess. Bess has signed an extension so it's safe for at least two years. Do you still have that Wes Welker jersey? PM me a price. I think I know someone who may want it.

    You can also strip off the nameplate on the Ginn and replace it with a Marshall. Or your own name.

    I've been fairly good, though some misses. I got a Ricky jersey in 2002 and still have it, and kept it and wore it through 2004 and 2006, so that ended up paying off. My first miss might be my Authentic Ronnie Brown jersey I got in the spring if he's gone....but he's been here long enough and if he leaves it will be classy where it won't matter and I can still wear. But he'll probably get picked up by the Patriots and end up beating us next season....

    I paid $400 for Anna Kournikiva to touch my pe-pe. The following year she plummeted in the rankings. I probably could've gotten a bargain price if I waited, but it was incredibly comfortable & fit like a glove...... so I have no buyer's remorse.
