1998-99 John Vanbiesbrouck Philadelphia Flyers Game Worn Jersey & Socks
Lot #133
This road orange air-knit gamer by Nike was worn by John Vanbiesbrouck during the 1998-99 NHL season. The New York Rangers selected Vanbiesbrouck in the 4th round of the 1981 NHL Entry Draft. Beezer’s NHL career spanned 20 seasons of which he spent the first 11 of them with the New York Rangers. In 1993-94, Beezer joined the expansion Florida Panthers where he remained for 5 years. Vanbiesbrouck next tended goal for two seasons in Philadelphia, which preceeded a year with the Islanders and a final stint with the Devils. During his career he won 374 games, registered 40 shutouts and posted a 2.97 GAA. He partook in 3 NHL All Star games and was twice a 1st or 2nd team NHL All Star. In 1986 he captured the Vezina Trophy as the leagues top goalie. John represented Team USA in the 1998 Olympic Games as well as the 1987 and 1991 Canada Cups. The Stanley Cup would ultimately elude him, but not for the lack of effort as we all remember him carrying the upstart Florida Panthers on his back to the Finals, only to fall to Patrick Roy and his mighty Colorado Avalanche squad.

The sleeves on this sweater have been customized with elastic having been added to the wrists. The game wear on this size 58 goalie cut sweater consists of stick and puck marks, abrasions, pulls and areas of pilling. Beezer played in 62 games, posting 27 Wins, 6 by way of shutout and 15 ties to go along with a stellar 2.18 GAA while wearing this sweater during the 1998-99 season. A terrific offering which will also include a pair of socks worn by Vanbiesbrouck.
