1990-91 Eric Lindros Oshawa Generals Game Worn Jersey - Photo Match - Video Match
Lot #212
This home white knit gamer by CCM was worn by Eric Lindros during the 1990-91 OHL season. Lindros entered the NHL with perhaps as much fanfare as any player in league history. Drafted by Quebec 1st overall in the 1991 NHL Entry Draft, Eric refused to play in French Canada and forced the Nordiques into making a draft-day deal. The Philadelphia Flyers paid a kings ransom, which included Peter Forsberg to land this giant talent. He began his career with the Flyers in 1992-93 and took the City of Brotherly Love on his back as hockey took center stage once again in Philadelphia. In only his 3rd year of play, Eric won the Hart Memorial Trophy as NHL MVP and the Lester B Pearson Trophy as the NHL’s outstanding player. Eric put up gaudy numbers as the leader of the Legion of Doom throughout the 1990’s and led the Flyers to the Stanley Cup Finals in 1997. Unfortunately for Flyers fans his 26 points in 19 playoff games weren’t enough to defeat the eventual champions from the Motor City. Playing such a rough and tumble style had serious consequences for Lindros. He missed parts of virtually every season due to injury, the most serious of which were a series of concussions. After sitting out the entire 2000-01 season, Lindros resumed his career with the Rangers with whom he played for 3 years. A year each in Toronto and Dallas followed before retirement became necessary, putting an end to an exciting career.

In a career filled with what ifs, Lindros played for 13 years in a scant 760 games. During that time he scored 372 goals and 865 points. His 1398 PIMS do not do justice to the rugged style of hockey he played, as he literally ran roughshot over the opposition. Lindros also left his mark on the international world stage, representing Team Canada in the World Championships, the 1991 Canada Cup, the inaugural 1996 World Cup of Hockey and 3 Olympics!

Proudly sewn to the left breast of this gamer is the alternate Captain’s “A”. The game wear on this size 54 sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, general filth, washed out bloodstains, pulls and heavy pilling. Shown above are some beautiful photo matches of Lindros wearing this exact jersey on home ice during the 1991 OHL Finals. Also shown above are video highlights of Lindros letting fly against Sault Ste. Marie during game 5 of the OHL Finals. Lindros spent parts of 3 seasons with the OHL’s Oshawa Generals prior to the start of his NHL career. It was his sheer dominance of the OHL that made Eric the most highly touted player to enter the draft since Mario Lemieux. While wearing this jersey during the 1990-91 season, Lindros scored 71 goals and added 78 assists for a whopping 149 points and also accumulated 189 PIMS in 57 games played. He then led his team to the OHL Finals during the 1991 playoffs, scoring 18 goals and 38 points in 16 games played while amassing 93 PIMS, thus completing one of the more dominating seasons in hockey history. This spectacular photo matched gamer was donned by Lindros during that aforementioned season, bears the scars of battle, sports the coveted letter of honor and stands ready to become a focal point in any serious game worn collection, choice!
