1996-97 Dave Andreychuk New Jersey Devils Game Worn Jersey - 500th Goal - Photo Match - Video Match - Team Letter
Lot #127

This historic game worn jersey hails from the ‘Raifie Bass Collection’. Raifie’s collection focused on the 500-Goal scorers and consisted of a game worn jersey from every 500-Goal scorer in the history of the NHL.

This home white air-knit gamer by CCM was worn by Dave Andreychuk during the 1996-97 NHL season. Drafted in the 1st round of the 1982 NHL Entry Draft by the Buffalo Sabres, Dave would go onto a career that spanned an impressive 23 seasons. He played in Buffalo for 11 years before moving onto Toronto. After parts of 4 seasons with the Leafs, Dave joined the Devils for parts of 4 years. Other stops included Boston, Colorado, another year in Buffalo and a final 4 seasons in Tampa Bay where Dave captured the trophy that had eluded him to that point, the Stanley Cup. Andreychuk is currently ranked 13th on the NHL’s all-time goal scoring list with 640. His 1338 career points are good for 27th best in the history of the sport. A member of the vaunted 50-goal club, Dave netted a career best 53 for Toronto in 1993-94. Longevity is a respected term among NHLers and Andreychuk fits the definition having finished his career with 1639 games played, the 4th highest total in league history. After serving as team Captain and hoisting the Cup in Tampa Bay, Dave called it quits on what was a most impressive career. A spot in the Hall of Fame awaits this 2-time NHL All Star.

Andreychuk wore this historic sweater on March 15th 1997, in front of the hometown fans, as he became the 26th player in NHL history to score his 500th Goal.

The game wear on this 2nd set sweater is solid consisting of numerous stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes and inner pilling. There is also champagne staining from the post game celebration in honor of his 500th goal. Shown above are a number of beautiful photo matches that show Andreychuk wearing this sweater during the 1996-97 season, included in which is the celebration after netting Goal #500. Also shown above are video highlights of Andreychuk scoring his 500th Goal. On the inside hem is the official New Jersey Devils game worn jersey and set information. Tremendous offering. This jersey will be accompanied by a Devils team letter.
