1988-89 Tom Barrasso Buffalo Sabres Game Worn Jersey
Lot #36
This home white knit gamer by CCM was worn by Tom Barrasso during the 1988-89 NHL season. 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.
 
The game wear on this size 54 sweater consists of stick and puck marks, pulls, pilling and a cut out fight strap. Barrasso played 10 games with the Sabres in 1988-89 before being dealt to the Penguins. As such this would have been Tom’s last jersey as a member of the Buffalo Sabres. A fantastic vintage item that originated from the personal collection of this US Hall of Famer and was worn during his last season in Buffalo!
