Style: Replica
Size: XXL
Manufacturer: CCM
Obtained: Yard Sale, 2014

Time for another full disclosure. I’ve never been a fan of the New York Rangers, but I am a fan of Jaromir Jagr. The guy can score and do it well, when he has the right kind of team to play on. He’s bounced around to so many different teams since he left Pittsburgh, it’s hard to settle in when you have no chemistry or hardly any time to play (right, Boston???).

I got to see a neutral site game in the early 90’s between Boston and Pittsburgh in Atlanta about 1993, and Jagr was the Captain if I recall. Mario Lemieux had just been diagnosed with Hodgkin’s disease and was not in attendance, which was a bummer. It was Ray Bourque’s 1000th NHL game, however. There were a lot of Boston and Pittsburgh fans at the game.

Jagr did play with the Rangers off and on from 2003-2012. This is a 3rd jersey style they used until about 2007. The colors are brilliant and the 3D design of the numbers really stands out.  Still, it’s the Rangers…

This jersey is for sale or trade.

Tomorrow: Jagr’s teammate during the “best” years
