This is Dan Hinote's Set 2 road sweater from the 2005-06 10th anniversary season. Very good wear on this sweater with several puck and stick marks throughout.. The Avs sweater has the Avalanche's 10th anniversary patch adorning the right chest. This is a later 6100 style Reebok jersey. A very nice example of a game sweater of a very popular Stanley Cup winning Avalanche player. I was very happy to add this sweater to my Avalanche game worn jersey collection.

Here is Hinote wearing the sweater in a road game vs. New Jersey Devils in 2006.

This is Gabriel Landeskog's Set 1 road sweater from the strike shortened season of 2012-13. This sweater is his 1st captain's jersey available to collectors. Landy kept his 1st captain's sweater from opening night against the Minnesota Wild. He wore this sweater in all road games up to March 14, 2013. The sweater shows great wear as the Avs only issued two sets to the players during the strike year.. Despite keeping his captain debut sweater, Landy wore this sweater for 8 road games, recording 1 goal and 3 assists while averaging close to 19 minutes of ice time in those games... The sweater has great wear and exhibits several team repairs and a nice puck mark on the crest which must of happened late in the last game that he wore the sweater in Minnesota on March 14, 2013 as I cannot track down a photo match for the puck mark... I was able to photo match the crease in the sweater below the collar and a team repair on the right elbow as is evident in the photos below.. This is a great game worn sweater from the Avalanche captain.. Landeskog is my favorite Avs player and I am very happy to have one of his coveted sweaters in my collection.

This is Tyson Barrie's Colorado Avalanche alternate 3rd Set 1 sweater from the Avalanche's 20th Anniversary season which had it's unveiling earlier this season. It was worn in games from October 24th (Alt 3rd Debut Game) through December 31st. The jersey exhibits good game use with board burns on both sleeves, an unrepaired hole on the back of the sweater and very extensive pilling on the front and back hem of sweater. Barrie logged 4 assists in the 6 games that he wore this Set 1 alternate sweater.
