Eric Lindros Philadelphia Flyers Autographed Authentic Jersey - 1992-93 Commemorative Rookie Jersey - Limited Edition #290 of 350
Lot #427
This white air-knit jersey was manufactured by CCM. Lindros entered the NHL with perhaps as much fanfare as any player in league history. Drafted by Quebec 1st overall in the 1991 NHL Entry Draft, Eric refused to play in French Canada and forced the Nordiques into making a draft-day deal. The Philadelphia Flyers paid a kings ransom, which included Peter Forsberg, to land this giant talent. He began his career with the Flyers in 1992-93 and took the City of Brotherly Love on his back as hockey took center stage once again in Philadelphia. In only his 3rd year of play, Eric won the Hart Memorial Trophy as NHL MVP and the Lester B Pearson Trophy as the NHL’s outstanding player. Eric put up gaudy numbers as the leader of the Legion of Doom throughout the 1990’s and led the Flyers to the Stanley Cup Finals in 1997. Unfortunately for Flyers fans, his 26 points in 19 playoff games weren’t enough to defeat the eventual champions from the Motor City. Playing such a rough and tumble style had serious consequences for Lindros. He missed parts of virtually every season due to injury, the most serious of which were a series of concussions. After sitting out the entire 2000-01 season, Lindros resumed his career with the Rangers with whom he played for 3 years. A year each in Toronto and Dallas followed before retirement became necessary, putting an end to an exciting career. In a career filled with what ifs, Lindros played for 13-years in a scant 760 games. During that time he scored 372 goals and 865 points. His 1398 PIMS do not do justice to the rugged style of hockey he played, as he literally ran roughshot over the opposition. Eric was recognized for his tremendous body of work when he was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2016.

This Philadelphia Flyers, size 56, authentic jersey has the player name “Lindros” on the back. The player number “88” is on both sleeves and the back. Eric has personally signed the jersey on the back number 8. On the back left hem it reads "Commemorating Eric Lindros 1992-93 Rookie Season 290 of 350".
