Sidney Crosby Team Canada Olympics Authentic Jersey
Lot #441
This red air-knit jersey was manufactured by Nike. The Pittsburgh Penguins selected Crosby with the 1st overall pick in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft. Sidney joined the Penguins immediately thereafter and has taken the NHL by storm with his adept scoring and playmaking abilities. In just his 2nd season Sid won the Art Ross Trophy as the leagues leading scorer, as well as both league MVP awards, the Hart Trophy and the Lester B. Pearson Trophy on the strength of a 120-point campaign. During his 3rd season, Crosby led his Penguins to the Stanley Cup Finals in what proved to be an unsuccessful bid for the Stanley Cup. Revenge would come in year 4 as a Stanley Cup Finals rematch occurred between Pittsburgh and Detroit as the Penguins defeated the Red Wings for the greatest title in all of sports. Crosby’s 31 points helped lead Pittsburgh to victory.

The 2009-10 season was another great one for Crosby. In perhaps the greatest international game of the modern era, Sid led Team Canada over Team USA to capture the Gold Medal with an overtime game winner to cap off a storybook ending to the 2010 Winter Olympics. In addition, Crosby smashed his own personal high for goals in a season with 51, two of them coming on the seasons final day to tie for the Rocket Richard Trophy for most goals scored in the league. It marked the 4th 100-point season of his career. Midway thru the 2010-11 campaign it looked as though Sid was going to shatter all of his personal scoring records. Thru exactly half a seasons worth of games he had scored 32 goals and registered 66 points before a concussion sent him to the sidelines, thus ending his year. The 2011-12 campaign saw Crosby return to limited action while lighting up the score sheets with 37 points in 22 games played.

The strike shortened 2012-13 season saw Sid the Kid return to health and tally 56 points during his 36 game schedule. The 2013-14 season marked Crosby’s first return to a full NHL schedule since the devastating concussions that he suffered a few years ago. Sid ran away with the NHL’s scoring title on the strength of 104 points, earning himself his 2nd Art Ross Trophy. His stellar season also earned him his 2nd Hart Trophy as the NHL’s MVP, the Ted Lindsay Award as the NHL’s Most Outstanding Player and yet another 1st Team All Star selection.

This Team Canada, size 54, authentic has the player name “Crosby” on back. The player number “87” is on both sleeves and the back. The Alternate Captain’s “A” resides on the left breast. The Canadian Olympic Committee patch is sewn on the rear tail.
