2003-04 Tony Amonte Philadelphia Flyers Game Worn Jersey – “HHOF”
Lot #141
This black air-knit gamer by Koho was worn by Tony Amonte during the 2003-04 NHL season. The New York Rangers selected Amonte in the 4th round of the 1988 NHL Entry Draft. After playing his college hockey at Boston University, Amonte 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 leagues best 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, proving that his rookie season was no fluke.

Best known as a Blackhawk, Tony had his greatest success wearing the Chief Indian Head crest. He would spend 8+ 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 stood with 416 goals and exactly 900 points. Tony played in 5 consecutive NHL All Star games spanning 1997-2001. He was a key member of Team USA in the Olympics in 1998 and 2002 where he captured a silver medal. Tony was also instrumental in helping Team USA capture the 1996 World Cup of Hockey.

Sewn to the right breast of this gamer is the 2003 Hockey Hall of Fame patch. The game wear on this size 52 sweater consists of stick marks, a number of board burns and inner pilling. Amonte wore this sweater on November 1st 2003 during the Hockey Hall of Fame game. Shown above are a couple of photos of Amonte that were taken during the November 1st contest between the Leafs and Flyers. A nice patched example from Amonte’s last 20-goal season.
