1999 Tony Amonte NHL All Star Game Worn Jersey – “1999 Tampa Bay All Star” - Career Best 44-Goal Season – NHL Letter
Lot #119

This red air-knit gamer by CCM was worn by Tony Amonte during the 1999 NHL All Star Game in Tampa Bay.  The New York Rangers selected Amonte in the 4th round of the 1988 NHL Entry Draft. After playing his college hockey at Boston University, this Hingham, MA native began his NHL career during the 1990-91 playoffs. During his rookie year of 1991-92, Tony netted 35 goals as the Rangers captured the President’s trophy as the NHL’s best regular season team. His excellent play helped earn him a spot among the league’s all-rookie team for 1991-92. Amonte’s sophomore season saw him light the lamp 33 times and add 43 assists for a 76-point season, paving the way for an All Star career.

Best known as a Blackhawk, Tony had his greatest success wearing the Chief Indian Head crest. He would spend parts of 9 seasons wearing the Chicago colors and produced all three of his 40+ goal seasons during that span. Amonte finished up his career with stints in Phoenix, Philadelphia and Calgary. When Tony’s 15-year career came to a close, he had registered 416 goals and exactly 900 points. Tony played in five consecutive NHL All Star games spanning 1997-2001 and was a key member of Team USA in the 1998 and 2002 Olympics. Tony was also instrumental in helping Team USA capture the inaugural 1996 World Cup of Hockey.

Sewn to the right breast of this gamer is the American Flag. Sewn to the right shoulder is the 1999 Tampa Bay All Star Game patch. Sewn to the left shoulder is the Blackhawks Chief Indian Head logo. The game wear on this size 56 sweater is light as would be expected. On the back player number is a beautiful black sharpie signature in Amonte’s own hand. Sewn to the base of the fight strap is the official NHL alphanumeric game worn code. Amonte lit the lamp 44 times during the 1998-99 season and finished runner up to Teemu Selanne in the Goal scoring race. A nice multi-patched autographed All Star Game example from Amonte’s career best 44-Goal season. This jersey will be accompanied by a copy of an NHL letter.
