    Just two bidders going back and forth now, this could go on till 10k if they both have enough money. Anybody else find it kind of creepy that when someone finally does end up wearing it we're all going to know how much they paid?

    How does the bidding work? Why does it sometimes go up 10 dollars sometimes 50 sometimes 100 or 200? The bidding thing on the auction page says current bid: 3010, next bid: 3020... so one assumes it's predetermined.
    Let's go Terriers!

    It hasn't taken me long to realize, everybody here knows a lot more than me about college hockey...

        So after I posted this a few days ago the picture has been changed (not saying cause and effect, because that would imply someone listens to me) and the new picture is of the actual auction jersey. I can tell because it's a Nike jersey, AND THE TEAM DIDN'T WEAR NIKE AT FENWAY. They just grabbed some overstock from last year lying in the closet and ripped the old "BOSTON" off and put on the Fenway stuff. Maybe the people spending 3 large don't care, but the jersey snob I am is kind of shocked.

          That is absurd. No way I would ever consider paying that for ANY jersey.

            People in athletics do follow these boards. I'd say there's a pretty good chance your post had something to do with it.

              That's what I said when it was at $800.

                  They could have a few problems on their hands for misrepresentation. This jersey is clearly not authentic in any way. The Nike/Bauer difference as you pointed out, and if you look at this picture of an actual game jersey: *******http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_eefBaTJJjp0/S0fKyusDNHI/AAAAAAAAADQ/2aFVDhIhsq0/s400/P1050797.JPG******** you'll notice the collar is a laced one, not a simple V, and the captain's C lettering is in a different font. Thus, this jersey can be considered a replica at best, and isn't worth 1/10 of what it's being auctioned for.

                    Well now that the picture is accurate by the time people bid for it they will know what they're getting (saved them the lawsuit, I expect the check for Fall tuition is in the mail ) so it can't really be misrepresentation (can it, I'm no lawyer), and it was made by the same guy, just instead of custom making the jersey he modified an old one that was lying around.

                    and look at wording of their description: "This is, without a doubt, a must-have for any BU Ice Hockey fan. An authentic jersey designed specifically for the outdoor Frozen Fenway game, which BU won over BC, 3-2. This one-of-a-kind item was made for the student-athletes participating in the game and will not be sold in stores. Don't miss your opportunity to own a piece of Boston sports history! (All BU proceeds will go directly toward the athletic scholarship fund.)"

                    It is an authentic jersey, it has the design made specifically for the game, it just wasn't made for the student athletes, it was made for the auction... pretty crafty writing all around.

                      Huh. Very interesting. And just to make this perfectly clear, I am not related to that Steve McLaughlin bidding on it. My family's crazy, but not that crazy.

                        the picture I'm seeing is not identical to the one I posted below, thus it is not authentic by definition and in a raffle for a collector's item like this, that's a huge difference.

                          It is "an authentic BU hockey jersey" it is not "an authentic Frozen Fenway jersey" the description seems ambiguous enough to me that it works for their little scam.

                          EDIT: Scam was a harsh term, it's just this whole situation is frustrating. It's deceiving bidders without outright lying. I assume who ever drops 3 large on a jersey has $$$$ and is a donor. Good job making them think it's #3's game worn jersey, when it is faaaaaar from that. Hopefully for BU's sake they are not too angry at the school, or at least don't display their anger in $.

                            The picture I saw when I looked just now looks exactly like the one when I looked last week. Of course, I wasn't paying too close attention. What is the jersey that slurpees posted? Is that an actual one?

                              The jersey slurpees posted was a picture taken of the real #3 jersey hours before the actual game. The auction picture was originally that picture with everything but the jersey whited out.
