1992-93 Tony Amonte New York Rangers Game Worn Jersey - Photo Match
Lot #48
This home white mesh gamer by CCM and Cosby was worn by Tony Amonte during the 1992-93 NHL season, his 2nd year in the league. The New York Rangers selected Amonte in the 4th round of the 1988 NHL Entry Draft. After playing his college hockey at Boston University, Amonte began his NHL career during the 1990-91 playoffs. During his rookie year of 1991-92, Tony netted 35 goals as the Rangers captured the President’s trophy as the leagues best team. His excellent play helped earn him a spot among the league’s all-rookie team for 1991-92. Amonte’s sophomore season saw him light the lamp 33 times and add 43 assists for a 76-point season while wearing this jersey in 1992-93.

Best known as a Blackhawk, Tony had his greatest success wearing the Chief Indian Head crest. He would spend 8+ seasons wearing the Chicago colors and produced all three of his 40+ goal seasons during that span. When Tony’s 15-year career came to a close, he stood with 416 goals and exactly 900 points. Tony played in 5 consecutive NHL All Star games spanning 1997-2001. He was a key member of Team USA in the Olympics in 1998 and 2002 where he captured a silver medal. Tony was also instrumental in helping Team USA capture the 1996 World Cup of Hockey.

Sewn to the right shoulder of this gamer is the NHL’s 100-year Stanley Cup anniversary patch. This size 52 sweater is simply hammered with game wear consisting of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes, gobs of pilling, a well-salted fight strap and in excess of two-dozen team-sewn repairs! Shown above are a couple of beautiful photo matches of Amonte wearing this exact jersey during the 1992-93 season. A hammered, photo matched example, complete with the 100-year patch and worn during this sniper’s sophomore season!
