2003-04 Murray Baron St. Louis Blues Game Worn Jersey Vintage - Photo Match Team Letter
Lot #263
This road white air-knit gamer by CCM was worn by Murray Baron during the 2003-04 NHL season. The Philadelphia Flyers selected Baron in the 6th round of the 1986 NHL Entry Draft. Baron played 3 seasons of college hockey for the Fighting Sioux at the University of North Dakota and won a National Championship as a freshman in 1987. After leaving college, this defenseman embarked on a 15-year long NHL career that began in Philadelphia in 1989-90. After 2 years with the Flyers, Baron suited up in St. Louis for parts of 6 seasons, and then spent a brief time with Montreal and Phoenix before completing a 5-year stint with the Vancouver Canucks. He completed his NHL career with one final return season with the St. Louis Blues in 2003-04. This hard-nosed defenseman accumulated 1309 PIMS in 988 games of NHL service.


Proudly sewn to the left breast of this gamer is the alternate Captain’s “A”. Sewn to the right breast is the Vintage “V”. The sleeves on this sweater have been custom shortened. Baron wore this sweater on November 15, 2003 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles as the Blues defeated the Kings by the score of 1-0 on a goal by Pavol Demitra. As part of the Vintage program, the Blues turned back the clock and wore uniforms styled after their 1979-80 club. The game wear on this size 58 sweater consists of a surprising number of stick and slash marks that are found on the body and both sleeves, showing that Baron was quite active during the contest. Shown above is a beautiful photo match of Baron wearing this exact jersey during the aforementioned game. Sewn to the inside hem is the official NHL game worn jersey tagging. This jersey will be accompanied by a Blues team letter.
