1988-89 Valeri Kamensky UCKA/Central Red Army Game Worn Jersey
Lot #206
This white mesh gamer by Team Place of Finland was worn by Valeri Kamensky during the 1988-89 season, while representing the Central Red Army. The Quebec Nordiques selected Kamensky in the 7th round of the 1988 NHL Entry Draft. Valeri spent the first 9 years of his professional career playing in his native Russia. During that time he was twice named USSR 1st Team All Star and was named the USSR Player of the Year in 1991. Before joining the NHL Kamensky partook in 3 Super Series, Rendezvous ’87, the 1987 Canada Cup and the 1988 Olympics. He would also represent Team Russia a decade later in the 1998 Olympics after having joined the NHL.

Kamensky spent 4 years with the Quebec Nordiques after beginning his NHL career with them in 1991-92. He then transferred with the franchise to Colorado where he won his first and only Stanley Cup later that spring. After spending 4 years with the Avalanche, Kamensky joined the Rangers for 2 years and then the Stars and Devils during what would be his final NHL season. This adept Left Wing set career highs during the Avs Cup winning season in 1996 with 38 goals and 85 points. Kamensky was an NHL All Star and one of a handful of players from the former Soviet Union who left their stamp on the game.

The game wear on this size XL sweater is solid and consists of numerous stick and slash marks, plenty of board burns, board paint transfer and un-repaired burn holes. A terrific well-worn vintage offering donned by this former NHL All Star during his time with the Central Red Army.
