1988-89 Sergei Zubov UCKA Central Red Army Game Worn Jersey
Lot #316
This white mesh gamer by Cooper was worn by Sergei Zubov during the 1988-89 season, his rookie year in the Russian League. The New York Rangers selected Zubov in the 5th round of the 1990 NHL Entry Draft. After spending a handful of seasons playing in his native Moscow, Zubov joined the Rangers in 1992-93. In his 2nd NHL season, Sergei played an integral role in helping the Rangers to the 1994 Stanley Cup. Zubov spent 3 years with New York before playing a lone season with the Penguins. In 1996-97 he joined the Dallas Stars where he remained for the final 12 years of his NHL career. While with the Stars, Sergei helped the franchise to their first and only Stanley Cup in 1999. This high scoring defenseman scored 771 points in 1068 career games. He recorded a single season best of 89 with the Rangers during their Stanley Cup season of 1993-94. Zubov was 3-times an NHL All Star and also has a 2nd Team NHL All Star selection to his credit.

Zubov first wore this jersey during the European Cup before wearing it during his Rookie season with CSKA Moscow. Sewn to the shoulders of this gamer are the sponsorship patches. The game wear on this size XL sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes and heavy areas of pilling. A beautiful bold blue sharpie signature in Zubov’s own hand resides on the verso. A well-worn example by Zubov as an 18-year old from his rookie season in the Russian League.
