Lot #93

This wonderful game worn jersey originates from the personal collection of Hall of Famer Brett Hull. A letter signed by Mr. Hull will accompany your purchase.

This home white air-knit gamer by Starter was worn by Brett Hull during the 1997-98 NHL season. The Calgary Flames selected Hull in the 6th round of the 1984 NHL Entry Draft. Hull saw his first NHL action in the 1986 playoffs, where he dressed for two games. He was again a late season call up in 1986-87, making it into the lineup for five games and four more in the playoffs. Hull finally broke camp with the Flames to begin the 1987-88 campaign. In his first full NHL season Brett would again be making a late season move. Despite playing in 52 games for the Flames, and registering 26 goals and 50 points, the club saw fit to deal Hull to the Blues at the deadline in exchange for Rick Wamsley and Rob Ramage.

Hull made an immediate impression in St. Louis and a Hall of Fame career was underway. In Hull’s first full season in St. Louis he struck for 41 goals and 84 points. The next 3 years would see Brett lead the NHL in goals, with totals of 72, 86 and 70 respectively. Two more 50-goal seasons followed en route to 741 career goals which place Hull 4th on the all-time list behind only Gretzky, Howe and Jagr. Hull’s 1391 career points are good for top 25 all-time. His career playoff totals of 103 goals and 190 points also place him among the all-time elite. Hull was three times a 1st Team NHL All Star at RW and played in 8 NHL All Star Games.

Brett represented Team USA in the 1991 Canada Cup, the 1996 and 2004 World Cup of Hockey and the 1998 and 2002 Olympics. In 1989-90 he won the Lady Byng Memorial Trophy. The 1990-91 season saw Hull capture the Hart Memorial Trophy as the NHL’s Most Valuable Player and the Lester B. Pearson Trophy as the NHL’s outstanding player.

Following his time in St. Louis, Hull moved to the Dallas Stars where, in his first season with the club, he captured his first Stanley Cup Trophy. After 3 years with the Stars, Hull moved to Detroit where again, in his first season with his new club, he captured the Stanley Cup. Brett spent a total of 3 years with the Red Wings before playing a final 5-game stint in 2005-06 with the Phoenix Coyotes.

Proudly sewn to the left breast of this gamer is the alternate Captain’s “A”. The sleeves on this gamer have been customized by the team for Hull. Penned on the collar tag is Brett’s player number “16” while an extra length “L” flag tag is sewn alongside. The game wear on this 2nd set size 52 sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, un-repaired burn holes, stitch popping, material pulls, fine inner pilling and a couple of team-sewn repairs. On the inside hem is the official St. Louis Blues game worn jersey and set stamp. Found alongside is the Bluenote logo with the notation “B3” penned in blue sharpie. Shown above are some beautiful photo matches of Hull wearing this exact jersey during the 1997-98 season. Hull wore this jersey on home ice during the latter part of the regular season and then throughout the Stanley Cup playoffs. St. Louis succumbed in a hard-fought 6-game series to the eventual Stanley Cup Champion Detroit Red Wings on home ice, making this sweater the last that Hull wore as a member of the St. Louis Blues. A well-worn photo matched offering, complete with letter of honor that originates from the personal collection of Hall of Famer Brett Hull and will be accompanied by his signed letter, choice!
