2001-02 Luc Robitaille Detroit Red Wings Stanley Cup Finals Game Worn Jersey – “2002 Stanley Cup Finals” - Photo Match – Team Letter
Lot #130

This home white air-knit gamer by CCM was worn by Luc Robitaille during the 2001-02 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs and Finals. Robitaille will go down as one of the greatest lower round selections in the history of the NHL. He was a 9th round pick in the 1984 NHL Entry Draft by the LA Kings, where he played for 14 of his 19 NHL seasons. Robitaille compiled incredible career statistics. He retired with 668 career goals, in excess of 725 assists and nearly 1400 points. The goal and point totals are good respectively for top 10 and top 20 all-time in the history of the sport. Luc played in 7 NHL All Star games and was voted a 1st or 2nd team NHL All Star 8 times. Also to his credit is the Calder Trophy for rookie of the year in 1987. Robitaille finally captured the trophy that had eluded him throughout his career, the Stanley Cup, which he won as a member of the Detroit Red Wings in 2001-02. With a 19-year career in the books, Luc is the most prolific scoring Left Wing in the history of the NHL, and a most deserving Hall of Famer.

Sewn to the right breast of this gamer is the 2002 Stanley Cup Finals patch. The game wear on this 2nd playoff set size 54 sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, heavy inner pilling and several team-sewn repairs. On the inside hem is a beautiful black sharpie signature in Robitaille’s own hand. Shown above are some beautiful photo matches of Robitaille wearing this exact jersey during the 2002 Stanley Cup Finals as well as during Game 7 of the Western Conference Finals against Colorado. In fact, Robitaille wore this jersey during each of the Red Wings 4 Playoff rounds during their march to Lord Stanley’s Cup. Affixed to the inside hem is the official Detroit Red Wings game worn jersey and set information. On the inside crest is the signature of the Red Wings equipment manager along with the following notation “2002 Stanley Cup Game Worn”. This tremendous Stanley Cup patched and photo matched example was worn by the NHL’s all-time leading scorer at LW during his only Stanley Cup Championship run, choice! This jersey will be accompanied by a Red Wings team letter.
