2007-08 Paul Kariya St. Louis Blues Game Worn Jersey - 1st STL Blues Game Team Letter
Lot #157

This road white air-knit gamer by Reebok was worn by Paul Kariya during the 2007-08 NHL season. The Anaheim Mighty Ducks selected Kariya with the 4th overall pick in the 1993 NHL Entry Draft. Kariya spent two seasons with the University of Maine where he won the Hobey Baker Award in 1992-93. Following time with the Canadian National team, Kariya would become the face of the franchise after beginning his NHL career in 1994-95. Paul spent 9 seasons with the Mighty Ducks where he served as their Team Captain for most of those 9 seasons. Kariya went on to play for the Avalanche, Predators and Blues before retiring in 2011 after 15 NHL seasons. His dynamic career was plagued by injury, stunting his career totals. Nevertheless, Kariya scored 402 goals and added 587 assists for 989 points on 989 games played. Kariya is a 50-goal and 100-point club member who played in 7 NHL All Star Games. He also earned (4) 1st Team and a pair of 2nd Team NHL All Star selections. This 2-time Olympian was a 2-time winner of the Lady Byng Memorial Trophy. The Hockey Hall of Fame recognized Kariya’s career with an induction in the class of 2017.

Kariya wore this jersey during his first regular season game as a member of the St. Louis Blues on October 4, 2007. In his debut game with the Blues, he assisted on a goal, served two minor penalties, took 5 shots on net and was named the 2nd Star of the Game. Light but noticeable game wear exists on this size 56 sweater, as would be expected. On the back player number is a beautiful silver sharpie signature in Kariya’s own hand. Affixed to the inside back player number is the official St. Louis game worn jersey tagging. Dated initials from the opener are found on the base of the fight strap. A terrific example from this Hall of Famer’s debut game as a member of the St. Louis Blues. This jersey will be accompanied by a Blues team letter.
