1998-99 Alexei Gusarov Colorado Avalanche Game Worn Jersey - Team Letter
Lot #279
This home white air-knit gamer by Starter was worn by Alexei Gusarov during the 1997-98 NHL season. The Quebec Nordiques selected Gusarov in the 11th round of the 1988 NHL Entry Draft. After playing for a decade in his native Russia, Gusarov came to North America and joined the Nordiques in 1990-91. He played with Quebec for 5 years and then moved with the franchise to Colorado where he spent parts of the next 6 seasons. Alexei then finished out his NHL career with brief stints in New York and St. Louis. He won his only Stanley Cup with the Avalanche in 1996, their first year in Colorado. On the international stage this defenseman represented his native Russia, partaking in numerous World Championships, Rendezvous ‘87, 3 Canada Cups, 3 Super Series and 2 Olympics!

The sleeves on this gamer have been custom shortened by the team. The game wear on this 1st set size 56 sweater is solid and consists of loads of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, areas of heavy pilling and a team-sewn repair. A well-worn nineties Avs example. This jersey will be accompanied by an Avalanche team letter.
