We have traced the origins of this amazing game worn Mario Lemieux jersey all the way back to the Pittsburgh Penguins sale of this gamer in the 1990’s. Accompanying your purchase will be a Pittsburgh Penguins LOA with their official Control Number signed by Hockey Hall of Famer Craig Patrick who served as the Penguins GM at the time of sale. This jersey has sat in a private collection out of the hobby spotlight for the past decade.

This road black knit gamer by CCM was worn by Mario Lemieux during the 1992-93 NHL 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 gamer is the Captain’s “C”. The game wear on this sweater is solid and consists of a good many stick and slash marks that are scattered about the body, hem and sleeves, a number of board burns, un-repaired burn holes and inner pilling. Penned in black sharpie on the collar tag is “66 C”. Penned in blue sharpie on the fight strap is the Pittsburgh Penguins official Control Number. This number corresponds to the number on the accompanying Pittsburgh Penguins team LOA, signed by Hockey Hall of Famer and former Team GM Craig Patrick. Mario’s 1992-93 season is considered by many as the greatest individual season in NHL history. Despite missing 24 games to treat his Hodgkins Disease, Mario dominated the NHL and put forth his best single season points-per-game total with 2.67! Mario swept all of the major awards and led the NHL in scoring with 69 goals and 91 assists for 160 points in merely 60 games played, many of them after undergoing treatment! An outstanding offering, complete with the coveted letter of honor and worn by “Le Magnifique” during one of the all-time great seasons in NHL history and accompanied by impeccable provenance, choice!
