1999-00 Ray Bourque Boston Bruins Game Worn Jersey - Final Season in Boston
Lot #85
This road black air-knit gamer by Pro Player was worn by Ray Bourque during the 1999-00 NHL season, his final season in Boston. The Boston Bruins selected Bourque with the 8th overall pick in the 1979 NHL Entry Draft. Bourque’s Hall of Fame career spanned 22 seasons, with 21 of them having been spent in Boston, sadly without bringing a Stanley Cup home to the Garden. Ray’s accomplishments are too lengthy to list in full; some of the highlights include: 1980 Calder Trophy for NHL Rookie of the Year, 1992 King Clancy Memorial Trophy as the player who best exemplifies leadership qualities on and off the ice and has made a noteworthy humanitarian contribution to his community, (12) 1st and (6) 2nd Team NHL All Star selections, 18 All Star game appearances, 5 Norris Trophies as the leagues best defenseman, a total which trails the likes of Bobby Orr 8, Doug Harvey 7 and Niklas Lidstrom 6. In Ray’s last season he finally earned the Trophy that had eluded him his entire career, the Stanley Cup as a member of the Colorado Avalanche.

Bourque is the all-time leading scorer among defenseman with 1579 points, which also places him among the elite on the all-time NHL scoring list. Ray is near the top on the all time assists list with 1169, trailing the likes of Gretzky, Messier and Francis. He is also the all-time leading goal scorer among defenseman with 410. Ray also resides in the top 10 all-time leading playoff scorers in NHL history. He was elected to the Hall of Fame on his first ballot in 2004 and will forever be remembered as one of the greatest defenseman in NHL history.

Proudly sewn proudly to the left breast of this gamer is the Captain’s “C”. Sewn to the right breast is the year 2000 NHL patch. The sleeves on this jersey have been custom shortened to Bourque’s specs. The game wear on this 2nd set size 56 sweater consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, material pulls and inner pilling. On the inside hem is the official Boston Bruins game worn jersey and set stamp. Alongside is the NHL’s year 2000 stamp and the Bruins logo. A terrific customized HOF gamer that bears the coveted letter of honor and was worn prior to the deadline deal that saw Ray dealt away from Boston, choice!
