1998-99 Teemu Selanne Anaheim Mighty Ducks Game Worn Jersey - Maurice "Rocket" Richard Trophy
Lot #121
This home white air-knit gamer by Nike was worn by Teemu Selanne during the 1998-99 NHL season. The Winnipeg Jets chose Selanne with the 10th overall selection in the 1988 NHL Entry Draft. Teemu literally burst onto the NHL scene, shattering all rookie records in his wake as he netted an incomprehensible 76 goals and 132 points as a rookie. It’s amazing that ‘The Finnish Flash’ is still going strong, currently in his 20th season in the league at the age of 42! Selanne has compiled staggering career numbers with 674 goals and 1429 points to his credit and counting. On his mantel are the 1992-93 Calder Trophy as Rookie of the Year, the 1998-99 Maurice “Rocket” Richard Trophy as the NHL’s top goal scorer, the 2005-06 Bill Masterton Trophy for his qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication to hockey and of course the 2007 Stanley Cup. Teemu is a 4-time 1st or 2nd Team NHL All Star and has played in double-digit NHL All Star games. On the international stage, this native of Finland has represented his country in the World Championships, a Canada Cup, 2 World Cups and 5 Olympics! Last season, at the age of 41, Teemu put forth a year that saw him score 26 goals and 66 points while playing in all 82 games, simply amazing. A 1st ballot induction into the Hall of Fame is certainly reserved for this all-time great.

Proudly sewn to the left breast of this gamer is the alternate Captain’s “A”. The game wear on this 2nd set size 54 sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, plenty of board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes, pulls, gobs upon gobs of inner pilling and a handful of team-sewn repairs. Sewn to the inside hem is the official Anaheim Mighty Ducks game worn jersey and set tagging. Worn during Selanne’s Maurice “Rocket” Richard Trophy winning season as he topped the NHL’s goal scoring list with 47 to go alongside 60 assists, thus breaking the 100-point barrier for the 3rd time during his Hall of Fame career. A tremendous 15-year-old offering, complete with letter of honor and donned during an award winning season, choice!
