In 1985-86, Broten became the first American born player to score 100-points in a season with a 105-point effort that year. In 1994-95, Broten joined the New Jersey Devils and provided that missing veteran leadership as they went onto win the Stanley Cup. A year after retiring, the Dallas Stars honored Broten by retiring his player number 7. This Gold Medal winner was a two-time NHL All Star and was the recipient of the 1998 Lester Patrick Trophy.

Sewn to the inside hip is the official Minnesota North Stars game worn jersey and set tagging. Neal Broten gamers are revered by collectors and have proven somewhat difficult to acquire due in large part by their popularity among collectors. This road green, complete with letter of honor and hailing from a Stanley Cup Finals season should please the most ardent Minnesota North Stars or Miracle On Ice collector.
