2002-03 Chris Chelios Detroit Red Wings Game Worn Jersey - Photo Match - Team Letter
Lot #143
This road red air-knit gamer by Koho was worn by Chris Chelios during the 2002-03 NHL season. The Montreal Canadiens selected Chelios in the 2nd round of the 1981 NHL Entry Draft. He would serve the Montreal franchise for seven seasons, beginning in 1984-85, during which time he played in 2 Stanley Cup Finals and walked away with one championship in 1986. A trade during the 1990-91 off-season sent Chris to Chicago in exchange for Hall of Famer Denis Savard. Chris led the Blackhawks for nine seasons, serving as the team’s Captain and leading them to the Stanley Cup Finals in only his 2nd year with the club.

Chelios next joined the Detroit Red Wings where he skated for a decade. During that time he went to 3 more Stanley Cup Finals and walked away victorious twice more. With his career now officially in the books, we can reflect on just how great it was. He played in 26 seasons, a total of 1651 games in all. During that time he scored 948 points and racked up 2891 PIMS. Add to that another 266 playoff games, 144 playoff points and 423 playoff PIMS.

Chris won 3 James Norris Memorial Trophies, which is awarded to the NHL’s best defenseman. He was 5-times a 1st Team NHL All Star and twice more a 2nd team NHL All Star. Chelios partook in the NHL All Star game a resounding 11 times. Born in Chicago, Chris has been an active participant over the years for Team USA. He was a member of the 1984, 1987 and 1991 Canada Cup teams, the 1996 and 2004 World Cup Teams and of course the United States Olympic Team on 4 occasions! A spot in the Hall of Fame is ready and waiting for this true warrior.

The game wear on this 1st set size 52 sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, washed out bloodstains, inner pilling, a salted fight strap and a several team-sewn repairs. Shown above is a beautiful photo match of Chelios wearing this exact jersey during the 2002-03 season. Additionally, this jersey has been photo matched to 5 more images located on Getty. The image numbers are 52423018, 52423149, 52423150, 52423151 and 52423152. On the inside hem is the official Detroit Red Wings game worn jersey and set tagging. This jersey will be accompanied by a Red Wings team letter.
