2005-06 Tony Amonte Calgary Flames Game Worn Jersey - "25-year Anniversary" - 400th Goal - Team Letter
Lot #97
This red air-knit gamer by Reebok was worn by Tony Amonte during the 2005-06 NHL season, and while scoring the 400th goal of his career on December 10th 2005. 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.

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 Calgary Flames 25-year anniversary patch. The game wear on this 1st set size 54 sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes, a heavily salted fight strap and inner pilling. Tony netted the game winner in overtime on December 10th 2005 against the Ottawa Senators to record the 400th goal of his NHL career while wearing this sweater. Shown above are photos taken of Amonte during that game and immediately after netting number 400! Sewn to the inside hem is the official NHL game worn jersey tagging. A milestone gamer from one of the best US born players in NHL history. This jersey will be accompanied by a Flames team letter.
