1995-96 Eric Lindros Philadelphia Flyers Game Worn Jersey
Lot #86
This home white air-knit gamer by CCM was worn by Eric Lindros during the 1995-96 NHL season. Lindros entered the NHL with perhaps as much fanfare as any player in league history. Drafted by Quebec 1st overall in the 1991 NHL Entry Draft, Eric refused to play in French Canada and forced the Nordiques into making a draft-day deal. The Philadelphia Flyers paid a kings ransom, which included Peter Forsberg to land this giant talent. He began his career with the Flyers in 1992-93 and took the City of Brotherly Love on his back as hockey took center stage once again in Philadelphia. In only his 3rd year of play, Eric won the Hart Memorial Trophy as NHL MVP and the Lester B Pearson Trophy as the NHL’s outstanding player. Eric put up gaudy numbers as the leader of the Legion of Doom throughout the 1990’s and led the Flyers to the Stanley Cup Finals in 1997.

Unfortunately for Flyers fans, his 26 points in 19 playoff games weren’t enough to defeat the eventual champions from the Motor City. Playing such a rough and tumble style had serious consequences for Lindros. He missed parts of virtually every season due to injury, the most serious of which were a series of concussions. After sitting out the entire 2000-01 season, Lindros resumed his career with the Rangers with whom he played for 3 years. A year each in Toronto and Dallas followed before retirement became necessary, putting an end to an exciting career.

In a career filled with what ifs, Lindros played for 13 years in a scant 760 games. During that time he scored 372 goals and 865 points. His 1398 PIMS do not do justice to the rugged style of hockey he played, as he literally ran roughshot over the opposition. Lindros also left his mark on the international world stage, representing Team Canada in the World Championships, the 1991 Canada Cup, the inaugural 1996 World Cup of Hockey and 3 Olympics!

Proudly sewn to the left breast of this gamer is the Captain’s “C”. The game wear on this size 58 sweater consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, un-repaired burn holes, a fight strap that has lost the battle to salt and rust and inner pilling. On the back player number is a black sharpie signature with the notation “All the Best” in Lindros’ own hand. On the inside of the crest are black sharpie signatures by the hands of Lindros and the equipment manager with the further notation “95-96”.

The 1995-96 season saw Lindros set career bests in all 3 scoring categories with 47 goals, 68 assists and 115 points as well as penalty minutes as he compiled a hearty 163 PIMS. A nice offering hailing from the prime of this perennial All Stars’ career, choice!
