This red air-knit gamer by Reebok was worn by Chris Chelios during the 2007-08 NHL playoffs as the Red Wings took hold of yet another Stanley Cup. This gritty warrior now has an incredible 25 NHL seasons in the books. Chris broke into the NHL in 1983-84 with Montreal, and remained there until the 1990-91 season when he went onto Chicago. He remained with the Hawks for 9 years before moving onto Detroit, where he has spent his last 10 seasons.
His career accomplishments include 3 Stanley Cup titles and 3 James Norris Trophies as the NHL’s best defenseman. He has represented Team USA in 4 different Olympic Games, 3 Canada Cups and 2 World Cups of Hockey. He represented Team NHL in Rendezvous '87 and also played in 11 NHL All Star games. Chris is a 7-time 1st or 2nd team NHL All Star and a 1st ballot Hall of Fame berth surely awaits one of the finest defenseman of our generation.
Sewn to the right breast of this gamer is the 2008 Stanley Cup Finals patch. This gamer was worn by Chelios in last season’s playoffs as the Red Wings marched to the 4th Stanley Cup title in the past 11 years. Chelios played in 14 playoff contests last season, and sat out the final round against Piittsburgh due to injury. The game wear on this sweater consists of stick marks, board burns, board paint transfer, inner pilling and team-sewn repair work on both elbows. Still affixed in the collar is the Detroit Red Wings original inventory price tag of $2000. Sewn to the inside hem is the official Detroit Red Wings game worn jersey tagging. This jersey will be accompanied by a Red Wings team letter.
