This home black air-knit gamer by Reebok was worn by Evgeni Malkin during the 2007-08 NHL season, Malkin’s sophomore season. The Pittsburgh Penguins selected Malkin with the 2nd overall pick in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft. Malkin joined the Penguins in 2006-07 and began his career in style, winning the Calder Trophy as the NHL’s Rookie of the Year. During his sophomore season, Evgeni scored 47 goals and 106 points finishing second to Alex Ovechkin for the NHL Scoring title. Evgeni was named a finalist for the Hart and Lindsay Trophies for his outstanding work as a sophomore. Malkin’s efforts helped Pittsburgh to the Stanley Cup Finals in 2007-08 where they fell at the hands of the Detroit Red Wings.

The 2008-09 season would be different, as Malkin would overtake Ovechkin and win the scoring title, capturing his first Art Ross Trophy. His phenomenal work wasn’t complete. He would continue his torrid scoring throughout the playoffs and helped lead the Penguins to the Stanley Cup, being named the Conn Smythe Trophy winner as playoff MVP with an amazing 36 point outburst in 24 games. Thus, Evgeni became the first-ever Russian born player to win the Conn Smythe Trophy.

After dealing with injury and a lengthy rehab over the following couple of years, this superstar winger was back in the fold in a big way. Evgeni had again become the Penguins go to man on the strength of a 50-goal and 109-point season in 2011-12 that earned him his second Art Ross Trophy. So good in fact was his 2011-12 season that Evgeni also won the Hart Trophy as the NHL’s MVP as well as the Ted Lindsay Award as the NHL’s most outstanding player. This 32 year old has played in 4 NHL All Star games and has three 1st Team NHL All Star selections to his credit. Malkin has continued to average well in excess of a point per game during his 13-year NHL career. His future Hall of Fame candidacy was recently cemented by a pair of Stanley Cup titles for the Penguins bringing the number of Championships won during the Crosby Era to three!

Sewn to the right shoulder of this gamer is the City of Pittsburgh 250-year patch. The game wear on this 3rd set size 56 sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes, washed out bloodstains, fine pilling and a couple of handfuls of team-sewn repairs. Shown above are a number of beautiful photo matches of Malkin wearing this exact jersey during the 2007-08 season. Sewn to the inside hem is the official Pittsburgh Penguins game worn jersey and set tagging. On the fight strap is a black sharpie signature in the equipment manager’s hand. Malkin struck for 47 goals and added 59 assists for a robust 106 points, finishing runner up for the Art Ross Trophy as the NHL’s leading scorer just behind Alex Ovechkin while wearing this jersey. Malkin’s strong efforts as a sophomore also earned him runner up for the Hart Memorial and Ted Lindsay Trophies as the NHL’s MVP and helped the Penguins to their first Stanley Cup Finals appearance of the Crosby era. This tremendous well-worn anniversary patched example is accompanied by some beautiful photo matches and hails from this future Hall of Famer’s 2nd NHL season, choice! This jersey will be accompanied by a Penguins team letter.
