2003-04 Teemu Selanne Colorado Avalanche Game Worn Jersey - Last Avalanche Jersey - Photo Match - Team Letter
Lot #99
This home burgundy air-knit gamer by Koho was worn by Teemu Selanne during the 2003-04 NHL season and Stanley Cup playoffs. The Winnipeg Jets chose Selanne with the 10th overall selection in the 1988 NHL Entry Draft. Teemu literally burst onto the NHL scene, shattering all rookie records in his wake, as he netted an incomprehensible 76 goals and 132 points as a rookie. It’s amazing that ‘The Finnish Flash’ is still going strong, currently in his 20th season in the league at the age of 42! Selanne has compiled staggering career numbers with 663 goals and 1406 points to his credit thru 19 seasons. On his mantel are the 1992-93 Calder Trophy as Rookie of the Year, the 1998-99 Maurice “Rocket” Richard Trophy as the NHL’s top goal scorer, the 2005-06 Bill Masterton Trophy for his qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication to hockey and of course the 2007 Stanley Cup. Teemu is a 4-time 1st or 2nd Team NHL All Star and has played in double-digit NHL All Star games. On the international stage, this native of Finland has represented his country in the World Championships, a Canada Cup, 2 World Cups and 5 Olympics! Last season, at the age of 41, Teemu put forth a year that saw him score 26 goals and 66 points while playing in all 82 games, simply amazing. A 1st ballot induction into the Hall of Fame is certainly reserved for this all-time great.

Selanne spent a lone season playing for the Colorado Avalanche in between his time with San Jose and Anaheim. Offered here is Teemu’s last-ever game worn jersey as a member of the Colorado Avalanche. The game wear on this 3rd set size 54 sweater consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, a heavily salted fight strap and areas of pilling. Shown above are some beautiful photo matches of Selanne wearing this exact jersey during the 2003-04 season. Furthermore, Selanne wore this jersey on home ice during his last game in a Colorado uniform, a 3-1 loss to the San Jose Sharks in game 6 of the Western Conference Finals. Another beautiful photo match of Selanne during that game can be found on Getty Images, image number 50800875. Sewn to the inside hem is the official NHL game worn jersey tagging. A terrific opportunity for the Selanne and or Avalanche collector to obtain a tough to find photo matched gamer from Teemu’s only year in Colorado, choice! This jersey will be accompanied by an Avalanche team letter.
