1991-92 Neal Broten Minnesota North Stars Game Worn Jersey – “25-year Anniversary” - Miracle On Ice Alum - The St. Paul, Minnesota Collection
Lot #36
This fresh to the hobby example is part of an exciting collection of newly discovered game worn hockey jerseys that were sourced from St. Paul, Minnesota. This collection is being offered to the hobby for the first time via the Fall 2015 Auction, exclusively at GAMEWORNAUCTIONS.NET. 

This home white knit gamer by CCM was worn by Neal Broten during the 1991-92 NHL season. The Minnesota North Stars selected Broten in the 3rd round of the 1979 NHL Entry Draft. Broten, a native of Roseau, MN was a key member of the celebrated 1980 US Olympic Gold Medal winning ‘Do you believe in Miracles’ squad. After skating for the University of Minnesota and winning the Hobey Baker Award, Neal joined his hometown Minnesota North Stars and, as a rookie, played in his first of three Stanley Cup Finals. Neal hails as the greatest Minnesota born player in NHL history and is a member of the US Hockey Hall of Fame. In 1985-86, Broten became the first American born player to score 100 points in a season with a 105 point effort.



In 1994-95, after spending 15 seasons with the Minnesota/Dallas franchise, Broten joined the New Jersey Devils and provided that missing veteran leadership as they went onto win their first ever Stanley Cup title. Neal spent parts of 3 seasons in New Jersey, a partial year with the Kings and his final 20 games with the Stars where he scored 8 goals and 15 points in his final 20 NHL games with his original franchise. A year after retiring, the Dallas Stars honored Broten by retiring his player number 7. This iconic Gold Medal winner was a two-time NHL All Star and was the recipient of the 1998 Lester Patrick Trophy.



Proudly affixed to the left breast of this gamer is the alternate Captain’s “A”. Sewn to the right breast is the NHL’s 75-year anniversary patch. Sewn to the left shoulder of this sweater is the Minnesota North Stars 25-year anniversary patch. The game wear on this size 50 sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, pulls and inner pilling. On the back player number is a beautiful black sharpie signature in Broten’s own hand. An outstanding multi-patched example that sports the letter of honor, was worn by this Minnesota icon and hails from the exciting St. Paul, Minnesota Collection that is completely fresh to the hobby.
