1988-89 Mark Recchi Pittsburgh Penguins Game Worn Jersey - Rookie
Lot #36
This home white knit gamer by CCM was worn by Mark Recchi during the 1988-89 NHL season, his rookie year. Recchi began his NHL career in 1988-89 as a member of the Pittsburgh Penguins. He would soon after team with Mario and company to capture the 1991 Stanley Cup. At the trading deadline of the following season, as the Pens were embarking on their 2nd Stanley Cup run, Rex was dealt to the Flyers in exchange for Rick Tocchet.

Mark would represent Philadelphia for parts of 4 seasons where he teamed with a young Eric Lindros to form one of the deadliest duos in the sport before heading to the Montreal Canadiens in yet another blockbuster deal. Following 5 years with Les Habitants, Recchi returned to Philly where he played for another 6 seasons. His next stop was back to where it all began, the Pittsburgh Penguins. However a deadline deal in 2006 proved fruitful for the veteran winger, as he captured his 2nd Stanley Cup while on loan to the Carolina Hurricanes. Since returning and then again leaving the Pens in 07-08, Rex played for the Thrashers, Lightning and most recently the Boston Bruins. During Mark’s time with Boston he provided veteran leadership to the young club and helped them bring home Lord Stanley’s Cup for the first time in 39 years this past spring. This was Recchi’s 3rd Stanley Cup title. Thru the end of last season, in a career that has spanned 1652 games, Recchi tallied 577 goals and 956 assists for a total of 1533 points. Recchi is 5th all time in games played. He has played in 7 NHL All Star games and was named 2nd Team NHL All Star at right wing in 1992. A spot in the Hockey Hall of Fame is no doubt reserved for this former 50-goal sniper.

The game wear on this 2nd set sweater consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes, washed out bloodstains and inner pilling. Penned in black sharpie on the crest is an autograph in Recchi’s hand. A nice example worn by Rex during the latter part of his rookie season.
