This black alternate air-knit gamer by CCM was worn by Jaromir Jagr during the 1995-96 NHL season. The Pittsburgh Penguins selected Jagr with the 5th overall pick in the 1990 NHL Entry Draft. Jagr was an instant force, earning a place on the all-rookie team and winning the Stanley Cup in each of his first two seasons in the league. Jaromir has amassed an impressive array of hardware during his storied career, which includes 5 Art Ross Trophies as the NHL’s leading scorer, 3 Lester B. Pearson trophies as the NHL’s outstanding player along with the Hart Memorial Trophy as the NHL’s Most Valuable Player in 1998-99. His career totals are thus far staggering. At the time of this writing Jagr had scored 765+ goals (3rd all-time), 1150+ assists (5th all-time) and 1900+ points (2nd all-time) in 1700+ career regular season games played, this despite playing in the KHL for 3 seasons. Jaromir’s career playoff totals are equally as impressive with 201 playoff points to his credit. His 24-year NHL career has seen Jaromir earn seven 1st and one 2nd team NHL All Star selections. He has played in 10 NHL All Star games, a Canada Cup, 2 World Cups of Hockey and 4 Olympic games! He is regarded as one of the game's all-time greats and will be enshrined in Hockey’s Hall of Fame on his 1st ballot of eligibility upon retirement.



Proudly sewn to the left breast of this gamer is the alternate Captain’s “A”. The game wear on this size 54 alternate is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes, numerous loose threads and fine inner pilling. Shown above are a couple of beautiful photo matches of Jagr wearing this exact jersey during the 1995-96 Eastern Conference Finals. The Penguins first broke out the newly designed alternate’s January 27, 1996. They continued wearing the new style throughout the remainder of the regular season and playoffs, 14 times in all. Pittsburgh got off to an incredible 11-0 start while wearing their alternates as they made a run to the Eastern Conference Finals, falling just shy of the Stanley Cup Finals.

Jagr’s 1995-96 season was simply magnificent. He rang up career single season best totals of 62 goals, 87 assists and 149 points, earning an All Star Game appearance and 1st Team NHL All Star honors. Jaromir finished 2nd behind only Mario Lemieux in goals and points during what was easily the best statistical season of his legendary career! The Penguins gave their fans quite a thrill, making a valiant run at the Stanley Cup Finals for the last time in Mario Lemieux’s storied career while wearing these newly designed alternates throughout the playoffs. A phenomenal photo matched offering that sports the coveted letter of honor and was worn by Jagr during an award-laden season, choice!
