1999-00 Alexander Karpovtsev Toronto Maple Leafs Game Worn Jersey - "2000 Toronto All Star patch" - Team Letter
Lot #187

This home white air-knit and mesh gamer by CCM was worn by Alexander Karpovtsev during the 1999-00 NHL playoffs. The Quebec Nordiques selected Karpovtsev in the 8th round of the 1990 NHL Entry Draft. This Moscow native spent nearly a decade playing for Moscow Dynamo during the course of his professional career. He joined the NHL with the New York Rangers in 1993-94 and won the Stanley Cup that spring. All told Alex spent parts of 6 seasons with the Rangers before a deal sent him to the Toronto Maple Leafs early in the 1998-99 season. After 2 years in Toronto and a year with Dynamo, Karpovtsev joined the Chicago Blackhawks and played in the Windy City for parts of 4 seasons. Alex played briefly for the Islanders and Panthers and ended his career back in Russia. Karpovtsev was serving as an assistant coach for the KHL’s Lokomotiv squad when he tragically lost his life on September 7th 2011 in a plane crash that killed 43 people including all of Yaroslavl Lokomotiv’s players and coaching staff.

Offered here is Karpovtsev’s last home Toronto Maple Leafs jersey. Sewn to the right breast of this gamer is the 2000 Toronto All Star game patch. Sewn just beneath is the year 2000 NHL patch. The game wear on this playoff set size 58 sweater consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes, washed out bloodstains, a well-salted fight strap and inner pilling. Sewn to the inside hem is the official Toronto Maple Leafs game worn jersey and set tagging. A beautiful All Star patched example that was the last jersey worn by this victim of the recent KHL tragedy, while serving the Maple Leafs franchise. This jersey will be accompanied by a Maple Leafs team letter.
