Game-Used vs. Team-Issued vs. Team Stock
- Game-used memorabilia is equipment that was worn/used by a player during an official NHL game. Details such as what player used the item, what game(s) it was used in, etc. will be provided.
- Team-issued memorabilia is equipment that was issued to a player by the team/league. These items have not necessarily been used during an official NHL game.
- Team stock items are equipment that was manufactured for a player or team that was not actually used in a game or practice, often times in the original manufacturer's packaging.
Authentication with OpSec
The Boston Bruins have enlisted the support of OpSec, the leading provider of physical authentication and online brand protection, to authenticate all Bruins Authentics items. Every item will receive an official tamper-proof OpSec hologram.
To check the authenticity, there is a QR code on the hologram that will take a customer to a BostonProShop.com page, where a specific 2-part code on the hologram and the call to OpSec will return the information on the item. The hologram should not be removed or else the item will lose its value and authenticity.
