1987-89 Steve Yzerman Red Wings Game Worn Jersey - Photo Matched
Lot #8

This home white knit gamer by CCM and Eastside was worn by Steve Yzerman circa 1987-88 or 1988-89. Yzerman is considered one of the best team captains in NHL history. His ability and grit led his teams to 3 Stanley Cup championships. His career totals will undoubtedly leave him be remembered as one of the all-time greats. Yzerman scored almost 700 career goals, over 1000 career assists and over 1750 career points. These totals place him 8th all-time in goals, 6th all-time in assists and 6th all-time in points. His playoff statistics are equally as impressive. Steve has scored 70 playoff goals, 115 playoff assists and 185 playoff points. Each of these numbers ranks him in the top 15 all-time.

In addition to his 3 Stanley Cups, Steve has also won a Lester B. Pearson trophy as the NHL’s outstanding player, a Conn Smythe trophy as playoff MVP and a Frank J. Selke trophy as the leagues best defensive forward. In years to come this Hall of Famer will be fondly remembered by us as one of the best and classiest we’ve seen take the ice.

Sewn high to the left breast and shoulder of this gamer is the Captain’s “C”. This jersey has been custom altered by the team to Yzerman's specs, having had its hem shortened. The game wear on this sweater consists of many stick marks, board burns, board paint transfer, pilling and un-repaired holes.  Shown above is a beautiful photo match of Yzerman wearing this exact jersey. Numerous areas of the jersey are clearly matched to the photo, wow!

Early period Yzerman gamers rarely become available to the hobby. This represents a rare opportunity to acquire one of Stevie Y’s very first Captain’s jerseys. An early career Captain’s jersey that is accompanied by a great photo match represents a tremendous opportunity for the astute collector.
