This road blue air-knit gamer by Koho was worn by Tom Barrasso during the 2002-03 NHL season. This Boston Massachusetts native enjoyed a stellar career that began with the Buffalo Sabres in 1983-84 and was so honored with the Calder Trophy for Rookie of the Year and the Vezina Trophy as league’s best goaltender. Barrasso shared the Jennings Trophy the following season with teammate Bob Sauve.
In his career Tom was 3 times a 1st or 2nd team NHL All Star and played in the NHL All Star game in 1985. Barrasso represented Team USA in the 1984 and 1987 Canada Cups. He won 2 Stanley Cups during his career, both with the Pittsburgh Penguins who acquired Tom from the Sabres in 1988-89. Tommy led the Pens to back-to-back Cup wins in 1990-91 and 1991-92. In 1992-93 Barrasso led the NHL in wins with 43.
1992-93 looked like it would be a 3-peat for the mighty Pens, but they fell in an overtime game 7 shocker in the playoffs to derail the would-be dynasty. During his career Barrasso won an impressive 369 games, good for 15th on the all-time list. A compelling case will surely be made for Hall of Fame induction for Barrasso in the near future.
Following his days in Buffalo and Pittsburgh, Barrasso ended his career with brief stints in Ottawa, Carolina, Toronto and finally St. Louis. Offered here is Barrasso’s 2nd set road gamer from his final NHL season. The game wear on this size 60 goalie cut sweater consists of stick and puck marks, burns, abrasions and pilling. Sewn to the inside hem is the official NHL game worn jersey tagging. Screened alongside is the official St. Louis Blues game worn jersey and set information. It is quite possible that this 2nd set gamer is the final NHL jersey worn by Tom during his storied career. This jersey will be accompanied by an NHL letter.
