Description

2009-10 Sidney Crosby Game Worn Pittsburgh Penguins Jersey - With Photo Match and Team LOA!  Matched in pre-NHL debut hype only by Bobby Orr and Wayne Gretzky, Sidney Crosby was such a clear first choice for the 2005 NHL draft that the lottery to determine the team picking order was widely called "The Sidney Crosby Sweepstakes." Much to the joy of Penguins fans, Pittsburgh emerged with the coveted first draft spot, bringing Crosby onto the ice with the legendary veteran Mario Lemieux for what would prove to be the latter's final twenty-six games of his career. And the torch was passed.

Presented is a road white sweater worn during the 2009-10 season, when the NHL superstar tied Tampa Bay Lightning center Steven Stamkos for the lead in goals scored, with 51, earning him the Rocket Richard Trophy. The jersey sports a large logo patch at the chest, and the captain's letter "C" just below the left shoulder. Number "87" appears at each bicep and on verso, where it is placed beneath a boldly lettered "Crosby" on the rear nameplate. "Cutting Edge Sports" maker's label appears at interior rear hem, noting the Penguins exclusivity and "Set #2 2009-2010." Fight strap remains affixed just above. Several stick and board marks decorate the jersey front and sleeves, in addition to multiple team-instituted repairs on the left shoulder, which can be matched to included images. A better example from the future Hall of Famer's fifth season does not exist. LOA from Pittsburgh Penguins #92016.
