Description
2006-07 Thomas Vanek Buffalo Sabres Game Worn Jersey - "Garth Brooks" - NHL/NHLPA Letter
Lot #144
This home blue air-knit gamer by Reebok was worn by Thomas Vanek during the 2006-07 NHL season. The Buffalo Sabres selected Vanek with the 5th overall pick in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft. After playing his award laden college hockey at the University of Minnesota, Vanek began his NHL career with the Sabres in 2005-06. He is now completing his 7th NHL season, having spent his entire career with Buffalo. Already to his credit is the 2006-07 Bud Light Plus-Minus Award, an NHL All Star game appearance and a 2nd Team NHL All Star selection at RW. This Vienna, Austria native is a two time 40-goal scorer who has represented Austria in the World Championships as well as the Olympics and is in the midst of a $50 Million contract.

Sewn to the right breast of this gamer is the Garth Brooks Foundation patch. Vanek wore this jersey during the January 7th 2007 game at the HSBC Arena against the Pittsburgh Penguins as part of the NHL’s charitable program in support of the Garth Brooks Foundation’s Teammates For Kids program. The game wear on this size 54 sweater is on the lighter side as would be expected. Sewn to the inside hem is the official NHL game worn jersey tagging. This jersey will be accompanied by an NHL/NHLPA letter.
