1987-88 Rob Brown Penguins Game Worn Jersey - Rookie
Lot #142

This home white air-knit gamer by CCM was worn by Rob Brown during the 1987-88 NHL season, his rookie year in the league. This gifted player came onto the scene with a bang after being a 4th round draft selection by Pittsburgh in 1986. It looked as though Mario would have a long term talented sidekick but it wasn’t to be. The Penguins traded their sniper to Hartford after only 3 ½ seasons, and Rob’s career was never the same. During his original stay in Pittsburgh, this youngster played 224 games scoring a resounding 112 goals and 255 points and was an NHL All Star.

This sweater was worn during Brown’s rookie season. Game wear is solid consisting of numerous stick marks and board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes, fine inner pilling and team-sewn repairwork to put together the back of the neck which was torn down into the top of the nameplate. There is some chipping to one of the shoulder numbers and just a tick out of Rob’s player number and name on the reverse. Important piece of Penguins history that was worn alongside Mario Lemiuex as he entered the NHL.
