1986 Tom Barrasso Team USA World Championships Game Worn Jersey
Lot #60

This white mesh gamer by adidas was worn by Tom Barrasso during the 1986 World Championships in Moscow. The Buffalo Sabres selected Barrasso with the 5th overall pick in the 1983 NHL Entry Draft. This Boston Massachusetts native enjoyed a stellar career that began with the 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 that rookie season. Barrasso then shared the Jennings Trophy the following season with his teammate Bob Sauve. Barrasso was 3 times a 1st or 2nd team NHL All Star and played in the NHL All Star game in 1985. Tom 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 Stanley Cup wins in 1990-91 and 1991-92. The following year he led the all NHL goalies in wins with 43.

The 1992-93 season 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. During his playing days, in addition to the Sabres and Penguins, Tom also backstopped the Senators, Hurricanes, Maple Leafs and Blues. This former two-time Stanley Cup winner captured the Calder, Vezina and Jennings Trophies and has already earned induction to the USA Hockey Hall of Fame.

Sewn to the shoulders of this gamer are the sponsorship patches. This jersey has been customized with an additional panel added from the sleeve cuffs all the way to the hem. The game wear on this size XL sweater consists of stick and puck marks, heavy goal post paint transfer, inner pilling and exhibits a torn front collar. A wonderful well-worn early career Team USA example worn by a then 21-year old Barrasso who by then had already played in an NHL All Star Game, earned a 1st and 2nd Team NHL All Star selection along with a Calder, Jennings and Vezina Trophy!
