Lot #101
This blue air-knit gamer by Nike was worn by Keith Tkachuk during the 1996 World Cup of Hockey. The Winnipeg Jets selected Tkachuk in the 1st round of the 1990 NHL Entry Draft. After playing his college hockey at Boston University, this Melrose, MA native began his NHL career with the Jets in 1991-92. Keith spent five years in Winnipeg and transferred with the club to Phoenix where he played for another five years before joining the St. Louis Blues. Tkachuk spent the final 9 years of his career in St. Louis where he completed his 18-year NHL career. Considered one of the few pure power forwards of his generation, Tkachuk ended his career with 538 goals, 1065 points and 2219 PIMS, quite impressive totals that will likely earn him induction into the Hall of Fame. He was twice a 2nd Team NHL All Star who played in a handful of NHL All Star Games. Tkachuk netted 50 goal seasons in Winnipeg and Phoenix. He was an integral member of Team USA, representing them in both World Cups of Hockey and 4 Olympics!

Proudly sewn to the left breast of this gamer is the alternate Captain’s “A”. Sewn to the left shoulder of this gamer is the 1996 World Cup of Hockey patch. The game wear on this size 58 sweater consists of stick marks, board burns, board paint transfer, exterior pilling and inner pilling. Shown above is a beautiful photo match of Tkachuk 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 and eventually pitted Team USA vs. Team Canada in a thrilling 3-game Final series that was won by Team USA, their first in the history of this storied event. A terrific photo matched offering complete with the coveted letter of honor and worn by this 500-Goal man during the inaugural World Cup! This jersey will be accompanied by an NHLPA letter.
