1990-91 Trevor Linden Vancouver Canucks Game Worn Jersey 1st All Star Season The Terrence Murphy Collection Joe Murphy Letter
Lot #13

This fresh to the hobby example comes directly from the personal collection of longtime New York Islanders employee Terrence Murphy. Terry worked for the New York Islanders from 1983 through 1992, beginning as their stick boy until being promoted to Assistant Equipment Manager in 1988. A letter of provenance signed by Mr. Murphy’s son will accompany your purchase. These exciting items are being offered to the hobby for the first time via the Fall 2020 Auction, exclusively at GAMEWORNAUCTIONS.NET.

This home white knit gamer by CCM was worn by Trevor Linden during the 1990-91 NHL season. The Vancouver Canucks selected Linden with the 2nd overall pick of the 1988 NHL Entry Draft. This native of Medicine Hat made his NHL debut in 1988-89 with the Canucks where he played for the next 10 years. After a shocking trade by the Canucks to New York in 1998, Trevor spent the next handful of years representing the Islanders, Canadiens and Capitals before returning home to Vancouver where he spent the final 6 years of his 19-year NHL career. Linden was a two-time NHL All Star, made the All-Rookie Team in 1988-89 when he finished runner up for the Calder Trophy and in 1996-97 won the King Clancy Memorial Trophy. On the international stage, Linden represented Team Canada in the World Championships, the 1996 World Cup of Hockey and the 1998 Olympics.

On December 17, 2008, Linden became only the second member of the Vancouver Canucks to ever have his number retired to the rafters. Trevor was a 6-time 30-Goal scorer and became the youngest player in Canucks history to be named Team Captain, an honor he bore for 7 seasons. In a career that spanned 19 seasons, Linden scored 375 goals and 867 points in 1382 games played.

Proudly sewn to the left breast of this gamer is the Captain’s “C”. The game wear on this size 54 sweater consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, heavy fraying of the numbers, a fight strap that has lost the battle to salt and rust, fine inner pilling and a team-sewn repair. Linden was just 20 years old when he took to the ice wearing this sweater as the youngest Captain in Vancouver Canucks history, and for that matter one of the youngest in NHL history. Trevor scored 33 goals and added 37 assists for 70 points during the 1990-91 season, which earned him his first NHL All Star Game appearance. A tremendous fresh to the hobby example that was worn by a then 20-year old while sporting the coveted letter of honor and comes directly from the personal collection of Terrence Murphy, choice!
