1998-99 Mark Recchi Philadelphia Flyers Game Worn Jersey
Lot #127
This home white air-knit gamer by Nike was worn by Mark Recchi during the 1998-99 NHL season. Recchi began his NHL career in 1988-89 as a member of the Pittsburgh Penguins. He would soon after team with Mario and company to capture the 1991 Stanley Cup. At the trading deadline of the following season, as the Pens were embarking on their 2nd Stanley Cup run, Rex was dealt to the Flyers in exchange for Rick Tocchet.

Mark would next represent Philadelphia for parts of 4 seasons where he teamed with a young Eric Lindros to form one of the deadliest duos in the sport before heading to the Montreal Canadiens in yet another blockbuster deal. Following 5 years with Les Habitants, Recchi returned to Philly where he played for another 6 seasons. His next stop was back to where it all began, the Pittsburgh Penguins. However a deadline deal in 2006 proved fruitful for the veteran winger, as he captured his 2nd Stanley Cup while on loan to the Carolina Hurricanes. Since leaving the Pens in 07-08, Rex has played for the Thrashers, Lightning and most recently the Boston Bruins for his last 3 seasons, where in his final game he hoisted the Stanley Cup for a 3rd time. In a career that spanned 1652 games, Recchi tallied 1533 points and lit the lamp a resounding 577 times. Rex is 5th all time in NHL games played. He has played in 7 NHL All Star games and was named 2nd Team NHL All Star at right wing in 1992. A spot in the Hockey Hall of Fame no doubt awaits this 50-goal sniper.

At the trading deadline in 1998-99, the Canadiens dealt Recchi back to the Philadelphia Flyers. During the stretch run that consisted of 10 regular season games and included a 1st round playoff exit in 6 games, Recchi donned the player number 11. Offered here is Rex’s home sweater from that season, the last of the Nike era in Philadelphia. The game wear on this size 52 sweater consists of a good many stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer and inner pilling. One of the few #11’s that exists and as such this example will entice any serious Recchi fan!
