GAMEWORNAUCTIONS.NET is pleased to present The John Shipman Collection. This exciting collection of game worn jerseys, equipment and memorabilia come directly from the personal collection of John Shipman. Mr. Shipman personally collected and preserved these items over the course of his tenure as the Montreal Canadiens assistant trainer from 1988-97. A signed letter from Mr. Shipman will accompany your purchase.

This home white knit gamer by CCM was worn by Patrick Roy during the 1988-89 or 1989-90 NHL season. The Montreal Canadiens selected Roy in the 3rd round of the 1984 NHL Entry Draft. This Quebec native made his NHL debut in 1984-85 with the Canadiens where he backstopped the team for 12 seasons. There are many who consider Roy to be the greatest goaltender in the history of the sport. He retired as the NHL’s all-time leader in wins with 551, a longstanding record that was previously held by the legendary Terry Sawchuk and has since been surpassed by Martin Brodeur. Roy is the current record holder with an amazing 151 playoff Wins, more than 50 victories better than Martin Brodeur who resides in second place. To go along with his four Stanley Cup rings, he carries three Conn Smythe Trophies as Most Valuable Player of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. The first of those playoff MVP’s came as a rookie in 1986 when Roy led the upstart Canadiens back to Stanley Cup glory. To his credit are three Vezina Trophies and five Jennings Trophies, noting his excellence between the pipes. Patrick was 6-times a 1st or 2nd team NHL All Star who also played in double-digit NHL All Star Games.

Following parts of 12 seasons tending goal and a pair of Stanley Cups for the Montreal Canadiens, Roy was dealt to the expansion Colorado Avalanche where he continued his dominance and led his brethren to another pair of Stanley Cup titles. All told Patrick guarded the pipes over 19 NHL seasons. He went out while he was still one of the NHL’s best, posting 30+ Wins and 60+ games in each of his last 11 non-strike shortened seasons. His GAA in his final season was 2.18 while the season prior he posted a career best 1.94 GAA. Roy, who excelled during three different decades, will forever be viewed as one of hockey’s all-time greats. Roy was inducted to the Hockey Hall of Fame on his first ballot with the class of 2006.

The game wear on this vintage sweater is solid and consists of stick and puck marks, plenty of goal post paint transfer, crossbar paint transfer, heavy inner pilling and a team-sewn repair. Shown above is a beautiful photo match of Roy wearing this exact jersey during training camp in 1994. The Canadiens recycled Patrick’s late 1980’s regular season gamer for use during training camp in 1994, sans a nameplate as seen in the photo match. Roy was in his prime in the late 1980’s while wearing this sweater on home ice at the Forum in Montreal. For his efforts, Patrick captured back-to-back Vezina Trophies in 1988-89 and 1989-90 and was selected 1st Team NHL All Star in both seasons. This magnificent fresh to the hobby photo matched offering hails from the prime of this Hall of Fame Goaltender’s NHL career, exhibits terrific game use and comes directly from the personal collection of former Montreal Canadiens assistant trainer John Shipman and is accompanied by his signed LOA, choice!
