This white air-knit gamer by Bauer was worn by Jaromir Jagr during the 1996 World Cup of Hockey. 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 amassed an impressive array of hardware during his storied career, which includes five Art Ross Trophies as the NHL’s leading scorer, three 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 staggering. Jagr scored 766 goals (3rd all-time), 1155 assists (5th all-time) and 1921 points (2nd all-time) in 1733 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 saw Jaromir earn seven 1st and one 2nd Team NHL All Star selections. He played in 10 NHL All Star games, a Canada Cup, 2 World Cups of Hockey and 4 Olympics! 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.

Proudly affixed to the left breast of this gamer is the alternate Captain’s “A”. Sewn to the left shoulder is the 1996 World Cup of Hockey patch. The game wear on this size 56 sweater consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, un-repaired burn holes and trauma, heavy exterior pilling and inner pilling. Shown above is a beautiful photo match of Jagr wearing this exact jersey during the 1996 World Cup of Hockey. Affixed to the inside hem is the official Nike barcode. The 1996 World Cup of Hockey was one of the most exciting international tournaments of all-time. Picking up where the “Canada Cup” series left off, this tournament did justice to those that came before it. A terrific photo matched offering complete with the coveted letter of honor and worn by the NHL’s 2nd all-time leading scorer during the inaugural World Cup of Hockey, choice! This jersey will be accompanied by an NHLPA letter.
