Description
1994-95 Uwe Krupp Quebec Nordiques Game Worn Jersey
Lot #269
This home white knit gamer by CCM was worn by Uwe Krupp during the 1994-95 NHL season. The Buffalo Sabres selected Krupp in the 11th round of the 1983 NHL Entry Draft. Born in Cologne, Germany, this towering 6’ 6” defenseman spent a handful of years playing in Germany before joining the Sabres in 1986-87. Early in his 6th season with Buffalo, Uwe was dealt to the New York Islanders as part of the Pat LaFontaine & Pierre Turgeon blockbuster. Krupp spent 3 years on the Island before joining the Quebec Nordiques in 1994-95. After just one strike shortened season with the Nords, the team relocated to Colorado where Uwe would spend the next 3 seasons and be an integral part of the franchise’s first Stanley Cup Championship. Krupp then joined the Detroit Red Wings and early on suffered a back injury that ultimately ended his career and required back surgery. Krupp played in the 1991 NHL All Star game and represented Germany in the World Championships as well as the Olympics.

The game wear on this mammoth size 58 sweater consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, washed out bloodstains and pilling. This jersey was worn during Uwe’s only season in Quebec. This also happened to be the strike shortened year of 1994-95 and thus the number of Krupp Nordiques gamers have always been in short supply.
