Certificate of Authenticity Once a jersey journeys out into the world of collectors and the marketplace, its most important companion is authenticity. Without authenticity, a game-worn jersey has almost no real value other than as a dirty jersey.

Proving a jersey's authenticity is no easy task, but programs like the NHL-MeiGray Group Jersey Authentication Program have been a huge help. Many experts agree that the most important thing for collectors to do is homework and research everything they can about a jersey before adding it to their collection.

"I think that too many times people do not ask enough questions as to why it's real when buying a jersey," said Milt Byron of Byron's Hockeyland.
