1993-94 Tom Barrasso Pittsburgh Penguins Game Worn Jersey
Lot #344
This road black knit gamer by CCM was worn by Tom Barrasso during the 1993-94 NHL season. This Boston Massachusetts native enjoyed a stellar career that began with the Buffalo Sabres in 1983-84 and was so honored with the Calder Trophy for Rookie of the Year and the Vezina Trophy as league’s best goaltender. Barrasso shared the Jennings Trophy the following season with teammate Bob Sauve.

In his career Tom was 3 times a 1st or 2nd team NHL All Star and played in the NHL All Star game in 1985. Barrasso represented Team USA in the 1984 and 1987 Canada Cups. He won 2 Stanley Cups during his career, both with the Pittsburgh Penguins who acquired Tom from the Sabres in 1988-89. Tommy led the Pens to back-to-back Cup wins in 1990-91 and 1991-92. In 1992-93 Barrasso led the NHL in wins with 43. 1992-93 looked like it would be a 3-peat for the mighty Pens, but they fell in an overtime game 7 shocker in the playoffs to derail the would-be dynasty. During his career Barrasso won an impressive 369 games, good for 15th on the all-time list. A compelling case will surely be made for Hall of Fame induction for Barrasso in the near future.

Barrasso donned this size 56 goalie cut sweater during the 1993-94 season, a notation of which is found in black sharpie on the interior back hem squeezed in between the CCM and NHL shield. The predominantly black coloration makes the game wear more difficult to discern. In the non-black areas there are visible stick and puck marks that go along with areas of pilling. A nice sweater from an era when Lemieux, Jagr and the rest of the Pens reigned supreme.
