1995-96 Claude Lemieux Colorado Avalanche Game Worn Jersey - Inaugural Season - Stanley Cup Season - Photo Match
Lot #163

This home white air-knit gamer by Starter was worn by Claude Lemieux during the 1995-96 Stanley Cup winning season, Colorado’s inaugural year. The Montreal Canadiens selected Lemieux in the 2nd round of the 1983 NHL Entry Draft. In a career that spanned 21 seasons, Claude led three different franchises to 4 Stanley Cup titles and ranks among the all-time elite in playoff scoring. Claude partook in 233 playoff games and scored 158 points while racking up 529 PIMS. Claude also holds the distinction of being one of the leagues most despised players. He was a solid 2-way player that was considered feisty or dirty depending on who you asked. He was awarded with the 1995 Conn Smythe Trophy after leading the New Jersey Devils to their first ever Stanley Cup championship. As a rookie in 1986, Claude was a late season call-up who played the full slate of playoff contests as the Canadiens captured the Stanley Cup. His regular season career totals include 379 goals, 786 points and 1777 PIMS.

The game wear on this size 56 sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes, trauma and inner pilling. Shown above are a couple of beautiful photo matches of Lemieux wearing this exact jersey during the 1995-96 season. On the crest is a beautiful black sharpie signature in Lemieux’s own hand. Lemieux had just won a Stanley Cup and was the reigning Conn Smythe Trophy winner when he joined the expansion Colorado Avalanche in 1995-96. Claude went on to have a tremendous season for the Avs as he rang up 39 goals, 71 points and 117 PIMS during Colorado’s first ever-regular season. Lemieux added another dozen points and 55 PIMS during the hard fought post season as the Avalanche captured their first Stanley Cup Championship later that spring. A well-worn photo matched example from Colorado’s inaugural season, and a Stanley Cup winning campaign at that!
