1991-92 Brett Hull St. Louis Blues Game Worn Jersey - Photo Match
Lot #13
This white air-knit gamer by CCM was worn by Brett Hull during the 1991-92 NHL season. The Calgary Flames selected Hull in the 6th round of the 1984 NHL Entry Draft. Hull saw his first NHL action in the 1986 playoffs, where he dressed for two games. He was again a late season call-up in 1986-87, making it into the lineup for five games and four more in the playoffs. Hull finally broke camp with the Flames to begin the 1987-88 campaign. In his first full NHL season Brett would again be making a late season move. Despite playing in 52 games for the Flames, and registering 26 goals and 50 points, the club saw fit to deal Hull to the Blues at the deadline in exchange for Rick Wamsley and Rob Ramage.



Hull made an immediate impression in St. Louis and a Hall of Fame career was underway. In Hull’s first full season in St. Louis he struck for 41 goals and 84 points. The next 3 years would see Brett lead the NHL in goals, with totals of 72, 86 and 70 respectively. Two more 50-goal seasons followed en route to 741 career goals which place Hull 3rd on the all-time list. Hull’s 1391 career points are good for top 20 all-time.  His career playoff totals of 103 goals and 190 points also place him among the all-time elite. Hull was 3 times a 1st team NHL All Star at RW and played in 8 NHL All Star games.



Brett represented Team USA in the 1991 Canada Cup, the 1996 and 2004 World Cup of Hockey and the 1998 and 2002 Olympics. In 1990 he won the Lady Byng Memorial Trophy, which is awarded to the player judged to have exhibited the best type of sportsmanship and gentlemanly conduct combined with a high standard of playing ability. In 1991 he was the recipient of the Hart Trophy as NHL Most Valuable Player and the Lester B Pearson Trophy as the NHL’s outstanding player as voted on by the players association.



Following his time in St. Louis, Hull moved to the Dallas Stars where, in his first season with the club, he captured his first Stanley Cup Trophy. After 3 years with the Stars, Hull moved to the Motor City where again, in his first season with his new club, he captured the Stanley Cup. Brett spent a total of 3 years with the Red Wings before playing a final 5-game stint in 2005-06 with the Phoenix Coyotes.



The 1991-92 season saw Hull net 70 Goals in 73 games played. It would be the last 70-Goal season of Hull’s Hall of Fame career!



Sewn to the right breast of this gamer is the NHL’s 75-year anniversary patch. The game wear on this size 52 sweater consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, sweat stains and inner pilling. Shown above are a couple of beautiful photo matches of Hull wearing this exact jersey during the 1991-92 season, taken specifically from the February 2nd 1992 game at Philadelphia. Take note of the heavy slash mark beginning at the bottom of the Blue Note crest as well as the rather oversized sleeve numbers and the lack of the Blues 25-year anniversary patch on the shoulder, all perfect matches to this sweater. Amazingly, as the legend goes, Hull’s road white gamer was stolen during a road trip and this replacement gamer was quickly sourced for Brett in the city of brotherly love. Hull subsequently wore this jersey at the very least on February 2nd 1992 during the Blues game against the Flyers at the Spectrum in Philadelphia, as per the provenance. This terrific example hails from Hull’s last 70-Goal season and is only enhanced by the accompanying rock solid photo matches and the amazing story that goes with, helping to remind us of the way things used to be in the old days, prior to the modern game worn jersey era. A true piece of hockey history whose story takes us back to days gone by and should captivate friends and collectors alike for decades to come, Hall of Fame worthy and choice!
