1991-92 Mario Lemieux Pittsburgh Penguins Game Issued Jersey - ‘’25-year Anniversary” – “Badger Bob” - Stanley Cup Season - Art Ross Trophy - Conn Smythe Trophy
Lot #65

This white knit jersey by CCM was issued for use to Mario Lemieux during the 1991-92 Stanley Cup winning season. The Pittsburgh Penguins selected Lemieux 1st overall in the 1984 NHL Entry Draft. Mario spent his entire career as a member of the Penguins, and eventually became the team’s owner. Lemieux’s career accomplishments are staggering. He ranks in the top 10 all-time in all 3 of the major NHL scoring categories. He retired following the 2005-06 season with 690 goals, 1033 assists and 1723 points. Try to comprehend what incredible scoring totals ‘Le Magnifique’ would have amassed if his health had allowed him to play an uninterrupted career. Mario’s average of better than an assist a game and nearly 2 points per game throughout his entire career is simply astounding, and is 2nd best in the history of the NHL. Lemieux won the Calder trophy as league’s top rookie in 1985, the Lester Patrick Trophy for outstanding service to hockey in the United States in 2000 and the Bill Masterson Trophy for the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication to hockey in 1993.

The 1992-93 season was one of tremendous ups and downs for Lemieux. He assaulted the league with his gifted play, winning yet another scoring title despite having his season cut severely short due to Hodgkins disease. Lemieux is a 2-time Stanley Cup champion, having won the Conn Smythe Trophy in both of those seasons as playoff MVP. He won (4) Lester B. Pearson awards as the NHL’s outstanding player, (6) Art Ross Trophies for leading the NHL in scoring and (3) Hart Memorial Trophies as the league’s MVP. Double digit All Star games and being a 9-time 1st or 2nd team NHL All Star selection are also part of the impressive resume. An Olympic Gold Medal and a 1987 Canada Cup trophy also find room on the mantel. The accomplishments go on and on; needless to say Mario is among the small handful of players that can rightfully be discussed as the greatest to have ever played the game.

Proudly sewn to the left breast of this jersey is the Captain’s “C”. Sewn to the right breast is the NHL’s 75-year anniversary patch. Sewn to the right shoulder is the Pittsburgh Penguins 25-year anniversary patch. Sewn to the left shoulder is the Badger Bob patch, worn to commemorate the passing of Badger Bob Johnson. Johnson guided the Penguins to their first Stanley Cup title the year prior. Penned on the collar tag is “66 – C”. Sewn alongside is the size 54 tag. Beautiful multi-patched sweater from the season that saw the Penguins become back-to-back Champions, winning their last title of the Lemieux era.
