1990-91 Ulf Samuelsson Hartford Whalers Game Worn Jersey - Photo Match
Lot #47

This home white mesh gamer by CCM was worn by Ulf Samuelsson during the 1990-91 NHL season. The Hartford Whalers selected Samuelsson in the 4th round of the 1982 NHL Entry Draft. Samuelsson spent the first 7 seasons of his career with the Whalers before a trade sent him to the Pittsburgh Penguins at the deadline in 1990-91. Samuelsson then went on to capture back-to-back Stanley Cups with the Penguins in 1991 and 1992. He spent parts of 5 years wearing the Pittsburgh black and gold, and then another 4 with the Rangers before a partial year in Detroit and a final season with the Flyers.

Ulfie will certainly go down as one of the most despised players of the modern era, assuming he wasn’t on your team. In a 1000+ game career, Ulfie amassed nearly 2500 PIMS. He may be best remembered historically for derailing the Hall of Fame career of beloved Boston Bruins forward Cam Neely with what most agree was a cheap shot to Neely’s leg. Ulf was a member of Team NHL in Rendezvous ‘87 against the Russians and also represented his native Sweden in the 1991 Canada Cup and the 1998 Olympics.

The game wear on this sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes, plenty of stitch pops to the hem striping and to the collar which was obviously grabbed aplenty in battle, a well-salted fight strap and inner pilling. Shown above is a beautiful photo match of Samuelsson wearing this exact jersey during the 1990-91 season. Samuelsson wore this gamer during his final year with the Whalers. Ulf was dealt to the Penguins at the trade deadline in the spring of 1991 and went on to win his first Stanley Cup Championship just a few months later. A well-worn vintage photo matched example.
