Lot #95

This home teal air-knit gamer by Adidas was worn by Joe Thornton during the 2017-18 NHL season. The Boston Bruins selected Thornton with the 1st overall pick in the 1997 NHL Entry Draft. Thornton made his NHL debut in 1997-98 at the age of 18 with Boston where he skated for 8 seasons. It was during Joe’s 8th year in the league that he was traded to San Jose. Joe was off to a quick start that year with the Bruins, a trend that accelerated after arriving in the Shark Tank. Thornton assisted on 92 goals and scored 114 points that season, both career best totals that were good enough to capture the Hart Trophy as the NHL’s MVP as well as the Art Ross Trophy as the NHL’s leading scorer. This was the first time that such honors were awarded to a player that played for two different teams in a season. Thornton spent parts of 15 years with San Jose and played his 23rd NHL season as a member of the Toronto Maple Leafs. In an amazing career that has spanned more than 1600 games, Thornton has amassed nearly 1100 assists and better than 1500 points. Thornton is currently the NHL’s 14th highest scorer of all-time, while also ranking 7th on the all-time assists list. Thornton is a four-time 1st or 2nd Team NHL All Star and has played in 6 NHL All Star Games. On the international stage, Thornton has represented Team Canada in the World Championships, two World Cups of Hockey and two Olympics.

Proudly sewn to the left breast of this gamer is the alternate Captain’s “A”. Sewn to the right sleeve is the NHL’s 100-year anniversary patch. The game wear on this 1st set size 58+ sweater is on the lighter side. Shown above is a beautiful photo match of Thornton wearing this exact jersey during the 2017-18 season, a higher res image can be found on gettyimages.com #871722612. Affixed to the inside fight strap is the official San Jose Sharks game worn jersey tagging that indicates this sweater being worn from 09/18/17 thru 11/19/17. A nice patched photo matched offering, complete with the letter of honor and worn by one of the NHL’s all-time leading scorers and future Hall of Famer.
