2008-09 Zdeno Chara Boston Bruins Game Worn Jersey - Norris Trophy - Photo Match - Team Letter
Lot #142
This home black air-knit gamer by Reebok was worn by Zdeno Chara during the 2008-09 NHL season. The New York Islanders selected Chara in the 3rd round of the 1996 NHL Entry Draft. This towering 6’ 9” defenseman began his NHL career with the Islanders in 1997-98. After 4 years in New York and 3 more with Ottawa, Chara found a home in Boston where he has spent the past 10 seasons. During that time Chara became Captain of the Bruins, hoisted the Stanley Cup and won the Norris Trophy as the NHL’s best defenseman. Chara has played in 6 NHL All Star games, was 7 times selected a 1st or 2nd Team NHL All Star and has been a 6-time finalist for the Norris Trophy. On the international stage, Zdeno has competed in numerous World Championships, the 2004 World Cup of Hockey and 3 Olympics.

Proudly sewn to the left breast of this gamer is the Captain’s “C”. The sleeves on this gamer have been customized for Chara by the Bruins. The game wear on this 1st set size 60 sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes, pulls, inner pilling and a team-sewn repair. The fight strap is affixed to a rectangular swatch of black material and has been relocated lower down the back and features heavy reinforced stitching. Shown above are a number of beautiful photo matches of Chara wearing this exact jersey during the 1st half of the 2008-09 season, including at the annual NHL All Star Game Superskills festivities, which appears to be the final time that he wore this sweater. Sewn to the inside hem is the official NHL game worn jersey tagging. The 2008-09 season was a special one for Chara as he captured the only Norris Trophy of his now 18-year long career. A fantastic well-worn photo matched offering that sports the coveted letter of honor and hails from this perennial All Star’s one and only Norris Trophy winning season, choice!
