1997-98 Doug Brown Detroit Red Wings Game Worn Jersey – “Believe” - Stanley Cup Season - Photo Match – Team Letter
Lot #134
This home white air-knit gamer by Nike was worn by Doug Brown during the 1997-98 Stanley Cup winning season. After graduating from Boston College, this Southborough, MA native began his NHL career with the New Jersey Devils in 1986-87. After 7 years in the Garden State, Brown spent a year with the Pittsburgh Penguins before joining the Detroit Red Wings in 1994-95. Brown went to the Cup Finals in 3 of his first 4 years in Detroit and walked away with two Stanley Cup Rings. After 7 seasons with the Red Wings, Doug announced his retirement.

This gamer has been custom shortened by the team for Brown. Sewn to the right breast of this gamer is the VK & SM “Believe” patch, in commemoration of the tragic limousine accident involving teammate Vladimir Konstantinov and team masseur Sergei Mnatsakanov following the 1997 Stanley Cup Finals celebration. The game wear on this 2nd set size 50 sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, plenty of board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes, material pulls, fine inner pilling, general filth and several team-sewn repairs. Shown above is a beautiful photo match of Brown wearing this exact jersey during the 1997-98 season. On the inside hem is the official Detroit Red Wings game worn jersey and set information. A well-worn photo matched offering, complete with the coveted “Believe” patch from the Red Wings 2nd Stanley Cup winning season of the Yzerman era. Our consignor purchased this jersey directly from the Red Wings following the season. It has remained tucked away in his private collection for the past 20 years and is completely fresh to the hobby! This jersey will be accompanied by a Red Wings team letter.
