2008-09 Mats Sundin Vancouver Canucks Game Worn Jersey Alternate Team Letter
Lot #111
This blue alternate air-knit gamer by Reebok was worn by Mats Sundin during the 2008-09 NHL season, the last year of his Hall of Fame career. Sundin was the 1st overall selection in the 1989 NHL entry draft by the Quebec Nordiques where he began his career. He played in Quebec for 4 seasons and set a personal best during his 3rd year in the league with a 47-goal and 114-point outburst. Mats joined the Toronto Maple Leafs in 1994 and became one of the Leafs all-timers. Mats would spend the bulk of his career with the Leafs, 13 years in all before one final season with the Canucks.



Sundin rang up impressive career stats. To his credit are 564 goals, 785 assists and 1349 points. Sundin played in 8 NHL All Star games, the 1991 Canada Cup where he was named to the Canada Cup All Star team, two World Cups of Hockey along with a 1996 World Cup All Star selection and three Olympics where he valiantly represented Team Sweden. Sundin also has two 2nd Team NHL All Star selections to his credit along with the 2008 Mark Messier Leadership Award. Mats was considered one of the most consistent players of his generation and was deservingly honored with a place in Hockey’s Hall of Fame.



Worn during Sundin’s final NHL season, the game wear on this 1st set size 58+ alternate is on the lighter side as would be expected. Penned in black sharpie on the fight strap is “Sundin 13”. Sewn to the inside hem is the official NHL game worn jersey tagging. Having spent a lone season in the great Northwest will likely make Sundin’s Canucks sweaters a tough find for Hall of Fame collectors in years to come. Here’s a terrific opportunity to put away a 1st set alternate from this Hall of famer’s final NHL season. This jersey will be accompanied by a Canucks team letter.
