Lot #97

This blue Winter Classic throwback was worn by Kris Letang during the 2007-08 NHL season while skating in the inaugural Winter Classic. The Pittsburgh Penguins selected Letang in the 3rd round of the 2005 NHL Entry Draft. This Montreal native has spent his 15-year NHL career as a member of the Pittsburgh Penguins where he has won a pair of Stanley Cups. During the 2016 Finals, Kris became just the fourth player in NHL history to record a point on all four Stanley Cup winning goals. Letang finished fourth in the Norris Trophy balloting in 2015-16 on the strength of 16 goals and 67 points. He was twice named a 2nd Team NHL All Star and has played in 6 NHL All Star games.

The inaugural Winter Classic was played in front of a then record 71,217 fans on a snowy, wintry day on January 1, 2008 at Ralph Wilson Stadium in Buffalo, NY. The Penguins prevailed over the Sabres 2-1 in a shootout, with Letang netting a shootout goal.

Sewn to the right breast of this early 1970’s throwback gamer is the inaugural Winter Classic patch. The game wear on this 2nd period size 56 sweater consists of stick and slash marks, board burns and inner pilling. On the back player number is a beautiful blue sharpie signature in Letang’s own hand. Sewn to the inside hem is the official NHL game worn jersey tagging. Sewn alongside is the official Pittsburgh Penguins Winter Classic game worn jersey tagging. A beautiful example from the inaugural Winter Classic, worn by this 6-time NHL All Star. This jersey will be accompanied by a Winter Classic letter.
