I think someone said it here but couldn't find the post, it amazes me when people kick the tires on gloves and if they can't get them for $80 that they don't even respond to say they are no longer interested. Would just be a nice if there was a bit more curtosey these days.
This. Also, when you accept a buyer's offer and they fall off the face of the earth when it's time to pay, despite reading their messages on here multiple times.
I've switched my collection's focus to Original 6 teams. Here's what I am currently trading for... (new/like new condition only).
Bauer One95's (or Nexus, though I prefer One95) in the following teams:
Montreal Canadiens (I have 5 pairs now), New York Rangers, Maple Leafs, Avalanche.
Bauer APX2's, 14" or Bauer MX3 15" in the following teams:
Canadiens FOUND!, Blackhawks, Maple Leafs, Rangers.
Pro Stock Bauer Re-Akt or IMS 9.0, Size M in light royal blue (Habs color, has to be Pro Stock.) FOUND!
3.0 Practice Jerseys:
Canadiens (I have 3 of these now), Blackhawks, Rangers, Maple Leafs
***Leafs jerseys and pants I may pass on. Waiting on new style to come around eventually.***

I have hit the point where, even if I want to sell something to an S2K member, I probably won't because people flipping what I give them good deals on is getting out of control. Oh, you couldn't afford to pay my original asking price, you say? (Because the "market value" isn't there...) But, I see you are trying to sell it for triple my original asking price.
Welcome to my "No Fly" list.

that was pretty much why I stopped selling here. I get some slightly ridiculous offers on Ebay but this is by far the worst.
Just had some tool on Instagram message me about my Penguins' Hagelin CCM gloves, offered me $25 for them. "They aren't game used, show no game wear, he never even touched them. The only reason I want them is because he is one of my favorite players."
Honestly, I would have choked the guy out if he were standing in front of me. He could not see a difference between people that buy pro-stock gear to use, and people that buy it to put in a memorabilia collection. If being able to smell Hags' sweaty hands makes the gloves worth more to you, more power to you, but that isn't my problem, and does not mean my gloves should be given away.
