1995-96 Joe Sakic Colorado Avalanche Game Worn Jersey - Inaugural Season - Stanley Cup Season - First 50-Goal Season - Career Best 69 Assists & 120 Points - Conn Smythe - All Star Season
Lot #129

This road burgundy air-knit gamer by Starter was worn by Joe Sakic during the 1995-96 Stanley Cup winning season, Colorado’s inaugural year. The Quebec Nordiques selected Sakic in the 1st round of the 1987 NHL Entry Draft and Joe spent all 20 of his NHL seasons playing for the same franchise, the first 8 in Quebec and the final 12 in Colorado. Sakic will go down as the greatest in franchise history, having compiled staggering career statistics, which place him among the game’s all-time elite. Joe scored 625 goals, 1016 assists and 1641 career points, placing him top 10 in the history of the sport. His playoff totals are no less impressive, having produced better than a point per game with nearly 200 for his career, placing him in rare company. Joe’s hardware includes the Lester B. Pearson award as the NHL’s outstanding player, the Lady Byng trophy for the combination of sportsmanship and high ability, the Hart Memorial Trophy as league MVP and the Conn Smythe trophy as playoff MVP. He was also the winner of an Olympic Gold Medal in addition to 2 Stanley Cup rings. Sakic was 3-times a 1st Team NHL All Star and played in 12 NHL All Star games as well as 2 World Cups and 3 Olympics. Spending an entire career as part of one franchise is a rarity in today’s era and forever earns him the title of “The Franchise”. This man is already considered among the all-time greats in the Hockey Hall of Fame, sadly we can no longer watch him perform his artistry.

Proudly sewn to the left breast of this gamer is the Captain’s “C”. The game wear on this size 56 sweater is solid and consists of a good many stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer and inner pilling. Sakic put forth a career season while wearing this jersey during the franchise’s inaugural year in Colorado. Sakic lit the lamp 51 times and thus reached the 50-goal plateau for the first time in his career. He added career bests in assists with 69 and points with 120 as he led his charge all the way to Stanley Cup glory where he was named playoff MVP and awarded the Conn Smythe Trophy later that spring! A tremendous well-worn example that sports the coveted letter of honor and was worn as Sakic put forth a career year as he led his first year Avalanche to the first Stanley Cup in franchise history, choice!
