2007-08 David Backes St. Louis Blues Game Worn Jersey – Team Letter
Lot #196
This white air-knit gamer by Reebok was worn by David Backes during the 2007-08 NHL season, his sophomore season. The St. Louis Blues selected Backes in the 2nd round of the 2003 NHL Entry Draft. This Minneapolis native spent 3 seasons at Minnesota State-Mankato before joining the Blues AHL affiliate late in the 2005-06 season. David played in 12 games for Peoria that year and another 31 the following season before he landed a full time gig with the St. Louis Blues. Backes now has 8 years in the books with the Blues and was recently honored having been named the 20th Captain in franchise history. Backes has twice eclipsed the 30-goal plateau and has an NHL All Star game to his credit. His +32 was 2nd best in the entire NHL in 2010-11. Internationally, Backes has represented Team USA in several World Championships as well as the 2010 Olympics where he took home a Silver Medal.

The game wear on this 1st set size 58+ sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes, loads of material pulls and heavy inner pilling. On the back player number is a beautiful silver sharpie inscription “All the best from the Captain” and is further signed by David. Affixed to the inside back number is the official BlueNote Authentics information as well as the official St. Louis Blues year and set information. A beautiful well-worn offering from Backes’ sophomore NHL season. This jersey will be accompanied by a Blues team letter.
