1990-91 Joe Sakic Quebec Nordiques Game Worn Jersey - Photo Match
Lot #8
This home white knit gamer by CCM was worn by Joe Sakic during the 1990-91 NHL season. The Quebec Nordiques selected Sakic in the 1st round of the 1987 NHL Entry Draft and Joe spent all 20 of his NHL seasons playing for the same franchise, the first 8 in Quebec and the final 12 in Colorado. Sakic will go down as the greatest in franchise history, having compiled staggering career statistics, which place him among the game’s all-time elite. Joe scored 625 goals, 1016 assists and 1641 career points, placing him top 10 in the history of the sport. His playoff totals are no less impressive, having produced better than a point per game with nearly 200 for his career, placing him in rare company.

Joe’s hardware includes the Lester B. Pearson award as the NHL’s outstanding player, the Lady Byng trophy for the combination of sportsmanship and high ability, the Hart Memorial Trophy as league MVP and the Conn Smythe trophy as playoff MVP. He was also the winner of an Olympic Gold Medal in addition to 2 Stanley Cup rings. Sakic was 3-times a 1st Team NHL All Star and played in 12 NHL All Star games as well as 2 World Cups and 3 Olympics. Spending an entire career as part of one franchise is a rarity in today’s era and forever earns him the title of “The Franchise”. This man is already considered among the all-time greats in the Hockey Hall of Fame, sadly we can no longer watch him perform his artistry.

Proudly on the left breast of this gamer is the Captain’s “C”, which is affixed to the jersey with velcro. The game wear on this size 52 sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired holes, salt deposits on the fight strap and fine inner pilling. Some minor cracking exists to the heat pressed areas as seen in the jersey photos. Shown above is a beautiful photo match of Sakic wearing this exact jersey during the 1990-91 season. An additional match was found on Getty Images reference #98145401. The 1990-91 season was Sakic’s breakout year into superstardom as he lit the lamp 48 times and totaled 109 points while wearing this sweater in front of the hometown fans at Le Colisee’ in Quebec. A tremendous well-worn photo matched example, worn by Sakic during his 3rd NHL season and sporting the prestigious letter of honor, choice!
