Lot #416

GAMEWORNAUCTIONS.NET is pleased to present The Chris Chelios Collection. This exciting collection of game worn jerseys, game used sticks and memorabilia comes directly from the personal collection of 3-time Norris Trophy winner and Hall of Famer Chris Chelios. Chelios personally collected these items over the course of his Hall of Fame career. Each has been in Mr. Chelios’ personal collection since leaving the ice and all are fresh to the hobby. A signed letter from Chris Chelios will accompany your purchase.

This road red air-knit gamer by CCM was worn by Ed Belfour during the 1993-94 NHL season. After playing a lone season for the Fighting Sioux at the University of North Dakota and winning a National Championship, this undrafted Hall of Fame goalie began his 18-year NHL career with the Blackhawks back in 1988-89. He tended goal for 9 seasons in Chicago, part of 1 season in San Jose, 5 in Dallas, 3 in Toronto and a final year in Florida. During that time Ed became the 3rd winningest goalie in NHL history, retiring with 484 Wins alongside a most impressive 2.50 GAA.

Belfour is tied with another Blackhawks legend, Tony Esposito, for 9th on the all-time shutouts list with 76. He won the Calder Trophy as rookie of the year in 1990-91, 4 Jennings Trophies and 2 Vezina Trophies as the leagues best goalie. Eddie played in 5 NHL All Star games and was 3 times a 1st or 2nd team NHL All Star. The Eagle also is a winner of hockey’s most prized possession, the Stanley Cup, which he won with the Dallas Stars.

Eddie “The Eagle” quickly became a fan favorite in Chicago where, in his first full season with the club, he played in 74 games. It wasn’t long before Belfour had backstopped his Hawks to the Stanley Cup Finals where they eventually fell to the great Penguins team in 1992 despite his playoff heroics. Eddie will forever be looked upon as one of the best of his generation and will always hold a special place in the hearts of Chicago and Dallas fans alike.

The game wear on this size 54 sweater consists of stick and puck marks, goal post and crossbar paint transfer and inner pilling. The Eagle posted the NHL’s 2nd best Wins total of 37 along with a league leading 7 shutouts in 1993-94. Belfour and Chelios spent 7 seasons during their Hall of Fame careers as teammates with the Chicago Blackhawks. A nice example hailing from the first regular season of air-knits in Chicago that comes directly from The Chris Chelios Collection.
