1994 Brett Hull Ninety-Nine Tour Game Worn Jersey Brett Hull Letter
Lot #46

This jersey originated from the personal collection of Brett Hull. Mr. Hull’s signed letter will accompany your purchase.

This white knit gamer by CCM was worn by Brett Hull in 1994 while skating for Wayne Gretzky’s Ninety-Nines during the NHL lockout. The Calgary Flames selected Hull in the 6th round of the 1984 NHL Entry Draft. Hull saw his first NHL action in the 1986 playoffs, where he dressed for two games. He was again a late season call-up in 1986-87, making it into the lineup for five games and four more in the playoffs. Hull finally broke camp with the Flames to begin the 1987-88 campaign. In his first full NHL season, Brett would again be making a late season move. Despite playing in 52 games for the Flames, and registering 26 goals and 50 points, the club saw fit to deal Hull to the Blues at the deadline in exchange for Rick Wamsley and Rob Ramage.

Hull made an immediate impression in St. Louis and a Hall of Fame career was underway. In Hull’s first full season in St. Louis he struck for 41 goals and 84 points. The next 3 years would see Brett lead the NHL in goals, with totals of 72, 86 and 70 respectively. Two more 50-goal seasons followed en route to 741 career goals which places Hull 4th on the all-time list behind only Gretzky, Howe and Jagr. Hull’s 1391 career points are good for top 25 all-time. His career playoff totals of 103 goals and 190 points also place him among the all-time elite. Hull was 3 times a 1st Team NHL All Star at RW and played in 8 NHL All Star Games.

Brett represented Team USA in the 1991 Canada Cup, the 1996 and 2004 World Cup of Hockey and the 1998 and 2002 Olympics. In 1989-90 he won the Lady Byng Memorial Trophy. The 1990-91 season saw Hull capture the Hart Memorial Trophy as the NHL’s Most Valuable Player and the Lester B. Pearson Trophy as the NHL’s outstanding player.

Following his time in St. Louis, Hull moved to the Dallas Stars where, in his first season with the club, he captured his first Stanley Cup Trophy. After three years with the Stars, Hull moved to Detroit where again, in his first season with his new club, he captured the Stanley Cup. Brett spent a total of three years with the Red Wings before playing a final five-game stint in 2005-06 with the Phoenix Coyotes.

Sewn to the right breast of this gamer is the NHLPA patch. Sewn to both shoulders are the sponsorship patches. The game wear on this size 52 sweater consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer and inner pilling. The Ninety-Nine Tour consisted of an 8-game series that pitted Wayne Gretzky’s handpicked All Star Team against 8 different opponents from around the world. The Ninety-Nine Team consisted of Hall of Famers such as Gretzky, Hull, Yzerman, Coffey, Messier, Macinnis, Blake, Fedorov and Fuhr. Gretzky and the boys finished with a 5-3 record over the two-week tour before returning to North America to ready themselves for the lockout shortened 1994-95 NHL season. Hailing from Brett Hull’s personal collection and accompanied by his signed letter, this colorful gamer is now more than a quarter-century removed from the ice.
