1998-99 Arturs Irbe Carolina Hurricanes Game Worn Jersey All Star Season
Lot #124

This home white air-knit gamer by Starter was worn by Arturs Irbe during the 1998-99 NHL season. The Minnesota North Stars selected Irbe in the 10th round of the 1989 NHL Entry Draft. This Latvia native played a number of years with Dynamo before making his NHL debut in 1991-92 with the San Jose Sharks. “Archie” stood between the pipes for five seasons in San Jose before playing a single season each with Dallas And Vancouver. Irbe then spent his remaining 6 NHL seasons as a member of the Carolina Hurricanes. Irbe was a two-time NHL All Star who starred on the international stage for the USSR prior to joining the NHL. This popular goalie also played in the 2002 and 2006 Olympics.

The game wear on this 1st set size 56 Goalie cut sweater is on the lighter side with notable Starter material pulls and areas of pilling most worthy of mention. On the inside hem is the official Carolina Hurricanes game worn jersey and set stamp. On the left breast is a bold black sharpie signature in Irbe’s own hand. Through the years, Irbe gamers have been a notoriously tough get for collectors. This is in fact the first game worn Arturs Irbe jersey that we’ve had the pleasure to bring to auction!
