1998-99 Larry Murphy Detroit Red Wings Game Worn Jersey - Photo Match
Lot #117
This road red air-knit gamer by Nike was worn by Larry Murphy during the 1998-99 NHL season. Murphy, who was the 4th overall selection in the 1980 NHL Entry Draft and was later inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2004 in his first year of eligibility, spent 21 seasons on NHL ice. During that time he captured 4 Stanley Cups, 2 each with Pittsburgh and Detroit. He ranks in the top 15 on the NHL’s all-time career assists list. He also ranks 5th on the all-time scoring list for defensemen with over 1200 points. He is 2nd in career NHL games played trailing only Gordie Howe. Larry tallied double-digit goals in an impressive 16 different seasons. His 150+ career playoff points rank him in the top 20 of all-time. Murph performed at an elite level for 2 decades, earning 2nd team All Star selections in the 1980’s and 90’s.



Murphy spent the last leg of his Hall of Fame career roaming the blueline in the Motor City where he won Stanley Cups in each of his first two seasons with the Red Wings. During his 3 full seasons in Detroit, Larry put forth double-digit goal totals in each, proving that his skill set was still Hall of Fame caliber after two decades in the NHL.



This jersey has been custom shortened in both the hem and sleeves for Murphy by the team. The game wear on this 1st set size 56 sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes, pulls, heavy inner pilling and 10 team-sewn repairs. Shown above is a beautiful photo match of Murphy wearing this exact jersey during the 1998-99 season. On the inside hem is the official Detroit Red Wings official game worn jersey and set tagging. An outstanding example, sporting customizations, great game wear and a stunning photo match that dates to this Hall of Famers time in the Motor City.
