1998-99 Ulf Samuelsson Detroit Red Wings Game Worn Jersey - Team Letter
Lot #188

This road red air-knit gamer by Nike was worn by Ulf Samuelsson during the 1998-99 NHL season. The Hartford Whalers selected Samuelsson in the 4th round of the 1982 NHL Entry Draft. Samuelsson spent the first 7 seasons of his career with the Whalers, before a trade sent him to the Pittsburgh Penguins at the deadline in 1990-91. Samuelsson then captured back-to-back Stanley Cups with the Pens. He spent parts of 5 years in Pittsburgh and then another 4 with the Rangers before a partial year in Detroit and a final season with the Flyers. Ulfie will certainly go down as one of the most despised players of the modern era, assuming he wasn’t on your team. In a 1000+ game career, Ulfie amassed nearly 2500 PIMS. He may be best remembered historically for derailing the Hall of Fame career of beloved Boston Bruins forward Cam Neely with what most agree was a cheap shot to Neely’s leg. Ulf was a member of Team NHL in Rendezvous ‘87 against the Russians and also represented his native Sweden in the 1991 Canada Cup and the 1998 Olympics.

Offered here is perhaps the most difficult of any Samuelsson gamer to obtain. Ulfie arrived in the Motor City late in the 1998-99 campaign and played in a mere 4 regular season games and 9 more in the playoffs for Detroit. This is Samuelsson’s road jersey from the regular season. The game wear on this 2nd set size 56 sweater consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer and inner pilling. Here’s your opportunity to acquire a truly tough to find sweater. This jersey will be accompanied by a Red Wings team letter.
