Description
1990-91 Ulf Samuelsson Penguins Practice Game Worn Jersey - Autographed
Lot #163

This gold mesh practice jersey by Cooper was worn during the 1990-91 Stanley Cup championship season by Ulf Samuelsson. Ulfie will certainly go down as one of the most despised players of the modern era, assuming he wasn’t on your team. He patrolled the blueline for 16 NHL seasons and played a key role on the Pittsburgh Penguins 2 Stanley Cup winning teams in the early 1990’s.

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 Olympic Games.

Welcome to Pittsburgh Ulfie! A deadline deal in 1991 brought Ulf and Ron Francis to the Penguins and they provided the spark that the Pens needed to capture the Cup. This jersey was worn by Ulf during practice sessions after that deal and thru the historic playoff run. Fine use consisting of numerous stick marks, board burns, un-repaired burn holes, fine inner pilling and a team-sewn repair are evident on this piece of Penguins Cup history as is the lovable skating Penguin crest. Samulesson has added a beautiful autograph on the back player number in gold sharpie which further enhances this unique offering.
