GAMEWORNAUCTIONS.NET is pleased to present The Darryl Shannon Collection. This exciting collection of game worn jerseys comes directly from the personal collection of NHL defenseman Darryl Shannon. Darryl personally collected these items over the course of his playing career, which spanned the 1980’s thru the 2000’s. The collection begins with his days in juniors, goes right through his NHL career and into his final few professional seasons while playing in Europe. A signed letter from Mr. Shannon will accompany your purchase.

This home white air-knit gamer by CCM was worn by Darryl Shannon during the 1998-99 NHL playoffs and Stanley Cup Finals. The Toronto Maple Leafs selected Shannon in the 2nd round of the 1986 NHL Entry Draft. Shannon starred for 3 seasons with the Windsor Spitfires in the OHL, where in 1987-88 he won the Max Kaminsky Trophy as the OHL’s most outstanding defenseman and led his team to the Memorial Cup Final, earning All Star status in the process. Darryl made his NHL debut with the Toronto Maple Leafs in 1988-89 with whom he played for 5 years. Shannon next signed with the Winnipeg Jets as a Free Agent in 1993-94. He would play for parts of 3 seasons with the Jets before a trade sent him to Buffalo in February 1996. Shannon spent 4 seasons representing the Sabres and was a member of Buffalo when they trekked to the Stanley Cup Finals in the spring of 1999. Darryl wrapped up his NHL career with brief stints in Atlanta, Calgary and finally Montreal where he played his last NHL games in 2000-01. Shannon then spent 3 seasons in Europe where he wrapped up his playing career in the DEL. All told this defenseman spent 13 seasons in the NHL. During his career he had the privilege to play alongside his younger brother Darrin while with Windsor in juniors and as members of the Winnipeg Jets.

Sewn to the right breast of this gamer is the 1999 Stanley Cup Finals patch. Proudly sewn to the left breast is the alternate Captain’s “A”. The game wear on this 3rd set size 58 sweater consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes, blood stains and inner pilling. Shown above are a couple of beautiful photo matches of Shannon wearing this exact jersey during the 1999 Stanley Cup clinching game 6 triple overtime thriller. Penned in black sharpie on the fight strap is the year and set designation “98-99 3”. A beautiful photo matched example complete with the Stanley Cup Finals patch and the coveted letter of honor. This gamer comes directly from the personal collection of Darryl Shannon and will be accompanied by his signed letter.
