1996-97 Chris Pronger St. Louis Blues Game Worn Jersey - Team Letter
Lot #111
This home white air-knit gamer by Starter was worn by Chris Pronger during the 1996-97 NHL season. Pronger is in the midst of a Hall of Fame career that began in 1993 when Hartford made him the 2nd overall selection in the NHL Entry Draft. Chris spent 2 seasons on the Whalers blueline before a blockbuster deal sent him to St. Louis in exchange for Brendan Shanahan. Chris spent 9 seasons honing his craft in St. Louis before joining Edmonton for a year. He next spent 3 seasons with Anaheim and most recently can be found delivering bone crunching hits for the Philadelphia Flyers.

Pronger’s additions to Edmonton, Anaheim and Philadelphia all saw his teams make it to the Stanley Cup Finals in his first year of service in his new digs, quite a statement. It would then come as no surprise that Pronger has won the Norris Trophy as the NHL’s best defenseman, the Hart Trophy as the NHL’s Most Valuable Player along with a couple of plus/minus awards and a Stanley Cup. Chris is a 4-time 1st or 2nd Team NHL All Star and has played in a handful of NHL All Star games. No stranger to the international stage, Pronger has represented Team Canada in 4 different Olympics!

The game wear on this 2nd set size 58-G sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes, plenty of Starter pulls & pilling along with a fight strap that shows rust. Removed from the left breast is the alternate Captain’s “A”. On the inside hem is the official St. Louis Blues game worn jersey and set tagging. Affixed alongside is the official BlueNote hologram. A terrific example from Pronger's 2nd year in the Show Me State. This jersey will be accompanied by a Blues team letter.
