1990-91 Mark Recchi Pittsburgh Penguins Game Worn Jersey – “41st NHL All Star” - Stanley Cup Season - All Star Season - Photo Match
Lot #12

This home white knit gamer by CCM was worn by Mark Recchi during the 1990-91 Stanley Cup winning season. The Pittsburgh Penguins selected Recchi in the 4th round of the 1988 NHL Entry Draft. Recchi began his NHL career in 1988-89 as a member of the Penguins. He would soon after team with Mario and company to capture the 1991 Stanley Cup. At the trading deadline of the following season, as the Pens were embarking on their 2nd Stanley Cup run, Rex was dealt to the Flyers in exchange for Rick Tocchet.



Mark would next represent Philadelphia for parts of 4 seasons, where he teamed with a young Eric Lindros to form one of the deadliest duos in the sport before heading to the Montreal Canadiens in yet another blockbuster deal. Following 5 years with Les Habitants, Recchi returned to Philly where he played for another 6 seasons. His next stop was back to where it all began, the Pittsburgh Penguins. However, a deadline deal in 2006 proved fruitful for the veteran winger, as he captured his 2nd Stanley Cup while on loan to the Carolina Hurricanes. Since leaving the Pens in 2007-08, Rex played for the Thrashers, Lightning and most recently the Boston Bruins for his last 3 seasons, where, in his final game, he hoisted the Stanley Cup for a 3rd time on his 3rd different team. In a career that spanned 1652 games, Recchi tallied 1533 points and lit the lamp a resounding 577 times. Rex is 5th all time in NHL games played. He played in 7 NHL All Star games and was named 2nd Team NHL All Star at Right Wing in 1992. Recchi was deservingly inducted as part of the 2017 Hockey Hall of Fame Class.



Sewn to the left shoulder of this gamer is the 41st NHL All Star Game patch. The game wear on this 1st set size 48 sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, plenty of board paint transfer, a number of un-repaired burn holes, stitch pops, material pulls and fine inner pilling. Shown above is a beautiful photo match of Recchi wearing this exact jersey during the 1990-91 season. Recchi was just spectacular during the Penguins first Stanley Cup winning season, lighting the lamp 40 times and adding 73 assists for 113 points in 78 regular season games earning his first All Star Game appearance for his efforts. Recchi finished 4th in the NHL in both assists and points. Recchi also put forth a tremendous Stanley Cup playoff run scoring 10 goals and adding 24 assists for 34 points in 24 games en route to the first Stanley Cup in franchise history! A well-worn photo matched All Star patched example of the NHL’s newest member of the Hockey Hall of Fame.
