1998 Zdeno Chara AHL All Star Game Worn Jersey – Rookie – “1998 Syracuse AHL All Star”
Lot #229
This blue knit jersey by Bauer was worn by Zdeno Chara during the 1998 AHL All Star Game. The New York Islanders selected Chara in the 3rd round of the 1996 NHL Entry Draft. This towering 6’ 9” defenseman began his NHL career with the Islanders in 1997-98. After 4 years in New York and 3 more with Ottawa, Chara found a home in Boston where he has spent the past 9 seasons. During that time Chara became Captain of the Bruins, hoisted the Stanley Cup and won the Norris Trophy as the NHL’s best defenseman. Chara has played in 6 NHL All Star games and was 7 times selected a 1st or 2nd Team NHL All Star.



Chara split his time between the AHL’s Kentucky Thoroughblades and the NY Islanders during his first year as a pro. Zdeno played in 48 AHL games in 1997-98 and earned himself a spot on the All Star team. Offered here is Chara’s All Star sweater from the 1998 AHL game in Syracuse.



Sewn to the right shoulder of this gamer is the 1998 Syracuse AHL All Star game patch. Sewn to the right breast is the sponsorship patch. Typical light usage exists on this size 60 goalie cut sweater. On the inside hem is a beautiful black sharpie signature in Chara’s own hand. A terrific offering from Chara’s rookie season and first professional All Star game.
