This white hockey blocker by Vaughn and white hockey catcher by Louisville were worn by Tom Barrasso while playing for the Pittsburgh Penguins and Ottawa Senators during the 1999-00 season. The Buffalo Sabres selected Barrasso with the 5th overall pick in the 1983 NHL Entry Draft. This Boston Massachusetts native enjoyed a stellar career that began with the Sabres in 1983-84 and was so honored with the Calder Trophy for Rookie of the Year and the Vezina Trophy as league’s best goaltender that rookie season. Barrasso then shared the Jennings Trophy the following season with his teammate Bob Sauve. Barrasso was 3 times a 1st or 2nd team NHL All Star and played in the NHL All Star game in 1985. Tom represented Team USA in the 1984 and 1987 Canada Cups. He won 2 Stanley Cups during his career, both with the Pittsburgh Penguins who acquired Tom from the Sabres in 1988-89. Tommy led the Pens to back-to-back Stanley Cup wins in 1990-91 and 1991-92. The following year he led all NHL goalies in wins with 43.

The 1992-93 season looked like it would be a 3-peat for the mighty Pens, but they fell in an overtime game 7 shocker in the playoffs to derail the would-be dynasty. During his career, Barrasso won an impressive 369 games, good for 21st on the all-time list. During his playing days, in addition to the Sabres and Penguins, Tom also backstopped the Senators, Hurricanes, Maple Leafs and Blues. This former two-time Stanley Cup winner captured the Calder, Vezina and Jennings Trophies and has already earned induction to the USA Hockey Hall of Fame.

This white Vaughn blocker has the Player name “Barrasso” stitched on the back. This white Louisville catcher also has the player name “Barrasso” stitched on the back. The catcher has been customized by the team as the index finger has been cut off and a plastic molded cap has been added for Barrasso to slip over that finger. Tom has autographed the catcher. Shown above are a couple of beautiful photo matches of Tom wearing these exact gloves during the 1999-00 season, both with the Penguins and then the Senators. The gloves show solid game use.
